“Cozy, Clean, Convenient Accommodations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This small, locally owned motel makes for a nice place to stay in Eugene, Oregon whether its for one night (for those late night Duck Football games) or several nights for a business trip or long weekend get-away. It is a no-nonsense motel with the bare essentials, but its location, price and condition make up for the other more traditional chain hotel amenities. This little gem, located minutes from I-5 and 2 blocks from the west end of the I-105 freeway, makes it a very convenient location to get to. It is a short drive/medium walk from the downtown Eugene blocks and location of the famous Saturday Market. The rooms are clean, although carpeting could use a freshening up. The bathrooms are clean and look to have been remodeled in the past 3-5 years. A good sized flat screen TV, small table, two chairs and a comfortable queen bed complete the appointments in the room. Rooms could use a small microwave, but otherwise, for the price ($99-119+/-) it is a bargain when compared to the other chain hotels in the area ($129-$200+). Staff is friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The hotel is horseshoe ("U") shaped. I would ask for one of the rooms on the inside of th...

This hotel was literally in the middle of everything my and my husband needed to do in Eugene. The room is nicely redone and a value for how much it cost. I will stay there again the next time I'm in town.

Overall nice motel. The outside of the motel doesn't look so great, but the rooms are all newly renovated and modern. Everything was very nice and there was also a small refrigerator and microwave! It is very close to downtown Eugene and local shops. A good place for a short stay. Rooms are not sound proof, so expect to here lots of noise in the morning as people check out and start their cars. Starbucks one block away better choice than their continental breakfast.

Room Tip: Park your car early as the lot fills up quickly at night.

This motel, with clean and well furnished rooms, is but 2-3 blocks from the Hult Center in Eugene, with its concerts and other events. A senior rate night for 2 double beds Feb '12 was $66, taxes and all. While not luxury nor resort, the truly downtown location is great for an inexpensive night when we drive to Eugene for Hult events.

Room Tip: One story horseshoe around the parking area, so all rooms about same. We enjoyed having a bathtub in...

Exterior is not encouraging, but room was very good - a cut above average, but couldn't really rate it as "very good" although it is a good value Very clean, good hot shower, big fluffy towels (Willamette Valley has soft water), solid mattress and confortable pillow, so-so breakfast bar (coffee, cereal, some fruit). Excellent location for moving about downtown Eugene. Frig, microwave, hairdryer.

I will say this, this motel offers a refrigerator & microwave. I stayed in a 4 star hotel that didn't offer those items. It's a cute, very old fashioned motel. Rooms are large and I giggled at the cute little built in heater in the bathroom. The shower is like a small tiled closet and just made me feel like I stepped back into time. Mattresses are hard as a rock though and my room needed to be renovated as I could see plaster patches and water damage in the bathroom. Continental breakfast is a bit of a joke. Two types of cereal, orange drink, terrible tasting packaged muffins, coffee, basic tea and fruit. Not much to it. All-in-all not a bad experience, just not my usual comfort.

My wife and I stayed here after booking the room on Orbitz. We had never stayed in Eugene before and therefore had no "go to" place. We took a chance and it worked out very well. The motel is pretty old, which means rather large rooms and our room had been freshly remodeled. I thought it cute that we had an old fashioned key instead of the usual credit card type key. We had a large bathroom with a tub, refrigerator, and microwave. Being a rural kind of guy, I had some anxiety about staying right downtown. It was well lighted and there are security cameras around. The only downside was there are 28 units in the front section and only 17 parking places. Someone potentially has to park somewhere else. That aside, I'll be back next time I need a room in Eugene.
