“Affordable and fit our needs perfectly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

We are a family of three (husband, wife and 2-year-old son). Since our son goes to bed a lot earlier than us, we wanted to get something with a separated area for him at an affordable rate. We also needed something with a bathtub instead of just a shower, laundry facilities as we would be there for several days, non-smoking, and preferably close to dining options. We found it all at the Broadway Inn, with additional amenites such as a fridge, microwave, haridryer and continental breakfast being a plus.

We actually booked our room via Expedia. I specified all the options above with the agent and said i didn't care which hotel she found as long as it was clean and had everything we needed; She said there were not a lot of 2-bedroom suites available in Eugene, but the one she found for us suited us perfectly (and was literally hundred of dollars cheaper than the five-star hotel in the same area). In fact, at the price we paid, I was afraid the lodgings were going to be scary but they were quite pleasant as long as you weren't expecting fancy, just clean and comfortable.
We were there in the off-season, which may have helped with the price.

The motel itself is pretty basic: a U-shaped complex of "drive up to the door" rooms with the office in the middle--no interior hallways to run around in. Our 2-bedroom suite consisted of a main room, then a small short hallway that led to the bathroom and separate bedroom with its own door. Both bedrooms had a queen bed, alarm clock, closet two reading lamps, and window (the back window is small). The main room also had the TV, fridge, microwave, and heater/AC, a desk and chair). Neither room was very large. In fact we set up our Pack-and-Play (portable crib) in the back room, and had to slide the queen bed over to make room alongside it to fit it in. Though tight, our son loved the arrangement because for the first time, he could climb out of his crib onto the bed. I was afraid he's tried to escape in the middle of the night but he was content to stay in the crib until it was time to get up in the morning.


The pros:
PRICE: We stayed three nights, and the price per night was better than most one-room room rates I've paid at other hotels. Great VALUE!

LOCATION: an easy drive to a very cool playground (Skinner Butte Park), to duck watching and children's museum at Alton Baker Park, and to Fifth Street Market (which has great toy store). We liked the Korean BBQ right across the street and the Thai place a few blocks down. There's an Original Pancake House about a 1/4 mile away and half a dozen other restaurants.
A little further drive led us to the Cascade Raptor Center, the Oregon Air and Space Musuem, and the Mount Pisgah Arboretum and Trails.

FREE BREAKFAST. The breakast is simple but tasty (bagels with cream cheese or jelly, Danishes, apples, bananas, applesauce and oatmeal and coffee juice tea). We knew there wouldn't be milk from previous reviews so we stopped at the 7-11 down the street and bought some after we checked in and just kept it in the fridge. We did decide to eat out our last morning to get some variety.

There isn't room to eat in the lobby but they had a guest room converted to a dining room, and it looked there there was a small outdoor seating area for when the weather turned warmer (we were there in Feb so it wasn't open, although the outdoor pool had water in it which surprised me).

QUIET: I know we had neighbors on both sides of us, but we really couldn't hear them through the walls.

STAFF: The staff were pleasant although misinformed as to which local parks had playgrounds. They directed us to Alton Baker just across the river (we couldn't find a playground there) but a bicyclist there referred us to Skinner Butte park which is even closer.

The cons:
There really weren't that many, and they were all minor.
MINOR REPAIRS NEEDED: The three-drawer dresser drawer in our room needed repair (the middle drawer did not slide easily), but there was a working five-drawer dresser in the back room. One lamp in the back room didn't work, but the other and overhead light were bright enough. The heater/AC was in the main room only which meant the main room had to get quite warm in order to heat the second bedroom, but the blankets were plenty warm.

NOISE: There is some traffic noise, but my son liked it as he likes white noise. We also head a train on occasion, but that's the case almost anywhere in the area. You can't hear it if the heater is on.

NAVIGATING: You can only turn right out of the parking lot, and there are some one-way streets and odd-angled intersections which makes navigating difficult, but we had a GPS so it didn't bother us. We also bought a fold-out street map on our way to Eugene.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

After driving from Vancouver BC to Eugene OR in one day we needed a good sleep. First we stopped at Timbers Motel, because their vacancy sign was lit, but we were turned away. A little way down the road was Campus Inn. We were about to get out of the car when we saw a large group of people drinking outside of one of the rooms. The large quantity of booze and loud music scared us away. All we were looking for was a quiet night. The next motel on broadway was Broadway Inn.

From the curb side, the Broadway Inn appears to be out of the 1950s. It's like the fog opened and instead of Brigadoon appearing, the Broadway Inn appeared.
Inside the office was a friendly worker at the front desk. She offered us one of the last rooms, which she noted is small and only has a queen bed. We told her that was fine. Next came the price, which I must say shocked me (but in a good way). We didn't have a coupon or a groupon, but the price she quoted was $60, including tax!

We pulled the van into the parking space infront of our room and I was a liitle worried. To arrive at 8:30pm, get a room without a reservation, have it only cost $60, and then have it be clean and comfortable seemed like we would be asking too much. Apparently we weren't.

The room was a little dated, but only in a charming way. I immediately pulled back the sheets to see if the was a catch only to find a clean, bed bug free mattress.
The room had all the modern conveniences: tv, heater, closet, dresser, microwave, and fridge. The bathroom was small but cute and even had a hair drier.

Our sleep was good and quickly followed by a delicious breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay in this charming throwback motor hotel and would definitely come again.

Clean, well-maintained rooms and grounds. Separate building with vending machines and clothes washer & dryer. Accommodations included fridge, microwave, excellent heater, secure lock and more. I was thoroughly impressed with the value, cleanliness, and professionalism of your staff. It's not easy offering so much for so little, but the folks at Broadway Inn make it look easy by handling the basics with care, and that says a lot. I've worked as a hotel housekeeper and have seen folks charge far more for a standard of hospitality that doesn't come close to this. Well done!

Older, reasonably maintained facility. Didn't try the breakfast buffet. Room quiet. The odor of urine extremely strong. Wouldn't stay again.

I am sorry to hear that you found your room unsatisfactory. I wonder if you called the front desk and let them know you had a problem.. I can assure you that we would have moved you to another room right away and made sure that housekeeping took care of the problem asap. We take pride in making sure our guests have a clean room! Again, I apologize that you stay with us was not up to your standards. I just wish you had given us a chance to make it right.

We have stayed here over 5 times and will continue to come back. The amenities are good for a budget hotel. breakfast,fridge, and shampoo is more than you get at some other places. Desk is friendly. This is not a resort, but for the price it is hard to beat for a clean room.

Assistant manager, Kathy, is a gem! Economical, central, convenient location, clean, quiet, and comfortable. Left Blackberry in room, no problem! Phone turned in to desk, one phone call 12 hours later, and mailed out to us the next day... When you're on the road, what matters is peace of mind, safety and comfort.... thank you so much....

We stayed in the Broadway Inn for two nights. The Assistant Manager who works evenings was wonderful and quite helpful. She advised us on places to eat, how to get to the football game, and looked up locations on the internet for us. We were given extra pillows and blankets and moved at our request for a different style of room. They are very accommodating. The room we chose had a unique set up. It had two queen beds, but they were in separate bedrooms with a bathroom between. It was wonderful to have some privacy but still share the cost of just one room. I rated the hotel only 3 stars because it is so dated! The bathroom is small with no where to place toiletries except the toilet tank. The television is very old style, small, and difficult to watch now that everyone is used to HD. It is clean, the mattress is comfortable and as I stated, the staff is very accommodating. I would still very much recommend the Broadway Inn, but be aware that it is like camping compared to many other hotels.
