“overpriced and lousy incompetent staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2010

The rooms are far overpriced for the area. When we were eating dinner several people tried to find someone to help them in the lobby but nobody was around the front desk. We found this to be true most of the time during our stay. The waiter in the bar where we had to have dinner insted of the nice dining room was very very rude. We liked the old hotels atmosphere and the food was good but the service was dismal. I wanted to write the ownders and found their names but no contact information is available.

Everything was wonderful. The staff was friendly and attentive. Staying in the hotel is like traveling back in time to the turn of the century. The food was delicious, the bed comfortable. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great getaway.

We had the pleasure of staying at this great place on there final weekend of the season. Not knowing what we were in store for it was worth every penny spent in this tough times. The staff is very small and caters to every need and is happy to do it. (the chef checked us in to our room). The Bartender/Server (Andrew) carried our bags to our room and gave us the scope on the town and what and were to do it. He also makes a great Chocolate Martini I think better that the Melting Pot restaurant in Portland. You can see the sense of pride of ownership in the quality of food that is served even when the place was packed for there closing weekend. The hot food was pipping hot and salad was a wonderful treat (Raspberry Dressing). My spouse had the Chicken fett and it was the best he ever had!!!! The Desserts you could go no wrong they are all baked fresh on site daily along with there herb bread that is served with every meal. This place is a must stay if you are ever are traveling through Eastern Oregon

Spent two nights over Labor Day weekend. The hotel was a delightful surprise in the small town of Condon. The rooms well pleasantly decorated and the beds were quite comfortable. We had dinner in the lounge and we were treated well by the one staff person on duty (Andrew). The food was excellent as were the drinks from the bar. Some might find the menu pricey, but we found the quality well worth the price. We took a road trip throughout the area on Sunday through Fossil to the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Park and over to the the Painted Hills. It was a fun drive with plenty to see. There isn't too much in Condon, so if you expect lots of options, dining or shopping, you would be disappointed.

We loved the hotel and lounge, so we will definitely go back again!

Although I haven't stayed at the Hotel Condon for almost a year now, I've always been pleased with my stay. It's a very comfortable and quiet place to stay. Condon is a charming town with several interesting sites nearby - the ghost town of Lonerock, their historical museum, hiking at the Western Rivers Conservancy (Murtha Ranch at John Day River), photography, bicycling, etc. As a frequent visitor to Condon, I have to laugh at one of the reviews that finds it "scary" that they left their room key on the front door. That's one of the beauties of Condon....it's so safe! Enjoy your visit and enjoy the wonderful people there! Be sure to visit their charming antique store - Days Gone By. If it's closed, just call Marilyn Chase, the owner who will meet you at the store, open up and let you browse I love that and always find something interesting to buy!

Condon, Oregon is so far off the beaten path that the nearest town is called Fossil. It's a three-hour drive from Portland east on Interstate 84 and then south on Highway 206. At one time there was motel in Condon that had a sign in each unit that read: " Don't clean game in your room." The only bar in town is called the Round Up Tavern, which is next door to the Cowboy Up Cafe.

I mention this because the Condon Hotel is totally out of place. It's a beautifully tricked out three-story boutique hotel with spacious rooms, cozy sitting areas on each floor and a gorgeous dining room and lounge. It's expensive by eastern Oregon standards, $148/night, and dinner for two can run $100, which is too steep for the locals. The food when I was there was not that great, but it could have been an off night. Anyway, the service was great as was the wine list.

This place was remodeled and redecorate to cater to the tourist trade, although I'm not sure how many tourists go through there. No kidding, this is really out of the way. It closes in January and reopens in time for Valentine's Day. According to the staff, reservations are good idea, particularly in the summer. So, if you're lost in eastern Oregon or just looking for a romantic, out of the way place, you got to check this out.

I stayed in this hotel in thanks giving week end, and it was great, as I red before in other comments, it is a great city hotel in a small town. Although the room was small, it was very nice and cozy. The breakfast was the only thing that did not cover our expectations.
