If you ever needed verification of the Theory of Relativity, try writing a review for the Imperial River Hotel in Maupin. On an absolute scale, you can't really give this hotel anything more than a 3 star rating. The rooms in the remodeled historic building and annex are modest, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is self serve where you can pull a Jimmy Dean sausage sandwich or waffle from the freezer and zap it in the microwave. Plus you get your choice of hard boiled eggs and cold cereal and toast. This is ordinary stuff.
But you have to consider the location. Nestled along the banks of the mighty Deschutes river with world class rafting and trout fishing within minutes of your door. You are miles away from the cares of the world. Given the right frame of mind, you could consider this as paradise.
The hotel restaurant is open from late April to September and is easily the best meal in Maupin. Be sure to try a grass fed and natural steak from the Imperial ranch.
Highly recommend for anglers and rafters.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Imperial River Company isn’t just a place; it is a state of mind. And our motto proves it.…Actively relaxing on the banks of the Deschutes River. Whether you have come out for the whitewater rafting, fishing, hunting, hiking, cycling, scenery, or to just get away from the big city for a weekend of relaxation and sun (we average 300 days of sun a year), Imperial River Company can more than help. Nestled directly on the banks of the Deschutes River, we are ideally situated to provide you with a relaxing environment and scenic views of the river with over 1/4 mile of river frontage. While we may be known for our beautiful lodge, scrumptious food, professionally guided whitewater rafting trips, and pheasant and chukar hunting adventures, we strive to provide more. Excellent service and a relaxing atmosphere make your stay with us that much more enjoyable. Look no further than our open-flame fire pit in our courtyard during the evenings where our guests relax and talk of the day’s successes. Come out and enjoy the best that Central Oregon has to offer. ... more less
