Despite a few measures to cut back during the downturn in the economy, The Campbell House is still a welcoming and comfortable place to stay. We've been staying here over the years when we visit Eugene, and have never been disappointed with our accommodations. Our recent stay was in the Carriage House, a first for us as we have always stayed in the main house. Our King bed room was on the ground floor and very quiet, indeed. Comfy bed with feather mattress topper, jetted tub, spacious bathroom, and central air. The bathroom toiletries have been scaled way back - just one shampoo and one tiny soap bar - no more Campbell Inn glycerine soaps! However; my only real complaint is the approach to said room (318). The flight of concrete stairs is difficult to manage with baggage. It felt dangerous as the thick ivy has overgrown most of the hand rail, so that it cannot be grasped. Attention to the outdoor maintenance at the Carriage House seems too lax for safety's sake. Besides the hand rail issue, there is an arbor around the backside of the building that is not stable at all. If it cannot be shored up, it should be removed. We were surprised to see that breakfast is now a buffet, and although the fresh fruit, juice, coffee, scones, and granola were all good, the quiche of the day was very dry due to the sterno set up to keep it warm. It would be helpful if the quiche were labeled as well. Ours seemed to have sausage and smoked salmon in it, but we weren't sure. Mystery quiche is not a good idea for folks who may have dietary restrictions. Just a suggestion... It's understandable that cutting back is necessary, but it does tend to unsettle repeat guests. I found the 'reminder' envelope to tip the house keeping staff a bit off putting. All in all, I would return when I'm in Eugene without hesitation. Taking advantage of the last minute specials when booking online is highly recommended. We had a dreamy night of sleep.
