“A Nice Stay...As Long as You Eat Elsewhere!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2008

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at the resort. I would agree that the staff were all wonderful. However we found the dinner to be sub-par. My husband ordered the crab cakes the first night and they were tasteless beyond the breading. The accompanying sauce was just as tasteless. What a disappointment. The steak tasted as though they had drained the juice from a can of Dinty More over the top.
On the 2nd night we had the pasta w/soy-based italian sausage as well as the salmon. They were an improvement over the 1st night but nothing that I would have paid their stated prices for. Thank goodness for the package.
I agree that the decor was an odd mix but maybe I'm picky as well. One other note re: appearances...what's with all the weeds in the beds outside the lobby? Sort of ironic at a garden resort.
During the day we had a great time exploring the area (Mt. Angel, Silver Falls, downtown Silverton, etc.). Overall we enjoyed a great weekend. My advice is to avoid the food and dine elsewhere. "

The resort was clean and beautiful. We had a king room with a fireplace and refrigerator and microwave. The room was very clean and the furnishings were in new condition. Nice tile floors in entry and bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. The included breakfast was very good and the eating area had a nice view. We had a great time and enjoyed touring the Oregon Garden next to the hotel property.

  • Liked — Very clean room with new furnishings.
  • Disliked — Slow check-in.

We just returned from this new resort ,and I must say we were quite impressed. The rooms were beautiful and spacious,our dinner was excellent ,and the gardens,which are next door ,are tremendous this time of year in oregon. We were able to take advantage of a tremendous introductory offer so the entire experience was very positive. It was great to view nature,and awesome Oregon weather in the fall. This resort is laid out well and entire stay was memorable.We finished it off with a trip to nearby Silver Creek Falls and saw many gorgeous waterfalls ,among fall folliage.

We are staying at the oregon garden resort as I type this. We checked in and found the room to be large & spacious. I noticed that there was landscaping bark and mud/dirt all over the sidewalk leading to our room. I don't think you can keep carpet clean with customers bringing all that into the rooms. They need to have door mats infront of the doors.
The room did have strong odor from paint, and the bad thing is we have booked for 4 more nights! We have never stayed at a new place before, so we were really surprised.
We believe this will be a very nice place to stay in a year or so, after all the bugs are worked out and the landscaping and work will hopefully be done. I would recommend staying only 1 night to try it out before staying multiple nights.
I will try and leave another review if the site lets me to see if some of the concerns about the paint smell can be addressed.

  • Liked — nice area, garden setting
  • Disliked — new...paint fumes...unfinished landscaping....needs a lot of finishing touches

We stayed for the one night dinner, lodging, breakfast, garden special for $ 69.00 --an excellent deal. The rooms were very clean and well appointed with comfortable beds, flat screen TV, and private balconies overlooking pine trees--Rms 409, 410. The dinner was very average--chain restaurant "Chalet" type food. Our waitress was very professional and enjoyable so that was a positive. The salad was fresh and some parts of the dinner had glimmers of hope for the future; but not quite there yet! Breakfast needs fresher fruits, vegetables, and WHOLE GRAIN offerings. The spa treatments were average. The entire experience will be better in the future, I am sure. The intended demographic seems to for older people; hopefully that will be balanced by the beautiful wedding site.

The Oregon Gardens Resort is a newly opened hotel, adjacent to the Oregon Gardens and with its own entrance to the gardens.
The rooms are spacious and fully equipped with a fireplace and refrigerator. The decor is homey with a garden motif. The hotel has a nice restaurant with an appetizing menu and wine list. Breakfast is included, buffet-style, good selection. The scones are wonderful!

The good-the beds are comfy. The proximity to the Oregon
Gardens.
The evil-the path to the garden was littered with garbage. The food and service in the lounge was horrific. The only staff member that showed any concern for us was an off duty staffer who was having an after shift cocktail. He said "we have a few bugs to work out" as he watched other staffers ignore us. The food was practically inedible-and we were given condiments in packets-like you get fast food restaurants. Unfortunately breakfast was not much better. We were glad it was free.
There was still painters tape left on fixtures in our room. The views are horrible. You only see the backs of the other buildings-and the dirt and construction mess. The smell of paint was overwhelming also.
It has potential but I would give it awhile before you go.
It is a lovely time to go to the Oregon Gardens- the fall colors and folage are really inspiring.
