We were moving from Texas to Oregon. I got this hotel as a special on a travel website and we were SUPER disappointed. The room and the layout were strange - like two former smaller rooms were put together. I can't explain it - just odd. Anyhow, "breakfast" - if you want to call it that - was coffee and rolls in packages. Nothing was even made there. It was in the "lobby" - again if you want to call the space of about 5 feet by 10 feet a "lobby". The neighborhood felt unsafe to us as we pulled in. We did walk to a convenience store but didn't feel really good about it. I can't see this as a two star place - one star is a stretch. I wouldn't recommend it.
OK place to stay. clean rooms, very convenient, friendly front-desk. LOTS of great places nearby to walk to with lots of good restaurants. the internet was like something from a by-gone era - maybe it's now time to seriously upgrade it?
Friendly staff at checkin and efficient. Room was mostly clean although there was a lipstick and a pair of footies under the bed when I checked for anything I might have droped. Bed was OK although an old mattress and box spring with lots of movement when I shifted my weight. Room was unique in that it had two double beds in two separate rooms, Parking is good. Breakfast was after I left, but it looked like it was coffee and maybe apples or something-there was only two chairs for the breakfast area.
This is an ideal stop between Portland and Crater Lake National Park. We took a tour to the University of Oregon which is located in the city Eugene. The Motel staff are friendly and ready to help. The rooms are newly furbished.
I booked this hotel on line as a 2 star. It is a 1 star. It has nice redone rooms. The beds are Comfy, the pillows are a matter of opinion. It is in an area of at least 3 hotels, 2 across the street. The road is Noisy and people next door Noisy, as walls are thin. It is an exterior, one level motel. Breakfast was coffee, juice, cereal or prepackaged pastry. No toast or anything else, Sad for a supposed 2 Star hotel. We do not recommend this motel , and felt it was way overpriced. (Unless you are a very Sound Sleeper and Skimpy Breakfast will work for you)
I will tell about our problem, but first, the good about the room. We had a very nice room for this price range. When we saw it, we were excited to get to stay here. It had a nice fridge and microwave, the WiFi worked great, the room was very clean, roomy, and nicely furnished. There was no stale smoke smell, or odor of cleaning chemicals/perfumed odor cover-up products. It was a nice room at a bargain price for this area. The day had been very hot and the room was a little warm, so the first thing we did was turn on the AC. The air it was putting out didn't seem that cool, but we thought it was still very hot outside, so it may have been struggling to overcome the heat load. After an hour or so, it was making no progress on cooling the room and the air it was putting out didn't seem cool at all. We contacted the office and the attendant came to check out the unit. He was unable to get it to put out cool air, either. The property was fully occupied, so he had no room that he could move us to. He contacted us in a few minutes (after contacting the owner/manager) and offered to reimburse the cost of the room if we wanted to go elsewhere. By this time, it was getting pretty late and we could not find any other suitable lodging in Eugene, so decided to sweat it out in this room - literally. We ended up turning off the unit at about 2:00 am and opening the windows to try to get some cooler air in the room. It was a miserable night with neither of us getting much rest. When I went to check out, the owner/manager said "You are in room ####." I said that we were. He then made a great business decision (It is his business and his decision. so he let it be known or not as he chooses) that turned a miserable night into a wonderful morning. It is always a privilege to meet and do business with an honorable man. He said that the room had been occupied every night for a number of nights without trouble with the AC unit. I believe that to be true as the room had the feel of having been air conditioned when we entered it even though it was warm. It was not his fault that our room was hot, but he took responsibility to do what he could to turn our miserable night into a good morning. I would definitely stay at this location again if in Eugene in the future. An honorable man has earned my gratitude and trust. Thank You!
Clean, comfortable reasonable price. Would definitely recommend if staying in Eugene on a budget. Front desk lady very nice. Let us check in early. Would stay here again for sure. Very close to University of Oregon and good local cuisine nearby. Right of the highway for easy access.
I paid $67. The room was small but had all the vitals: microwave, coffee maker, iron w/board, heater, ice bucket, blow dryer, soaps and such. The only reason I would not give this place an excellent review (for the price; this is no hilton after all) is because the heater is loud and the pillows don't hold their shape. I felt like my head created a permanent indent in the pillow, like it was memory foam, but in a negative way because my head felt like it was getting no support. However if u are staying a night, don't want to pay much, and aren't annoyed by the sound of a heater this is a great place.
Pros: The front desk lady was kind, helpful and spoke English Continental breakfast actually had hot chocolate for once instead of just coffee! Sweet! Good price Wifi worked just fine Cons: It's on a one way road
Old hotel that have being renovated Small rooms & small bathroom but clean with excellent rates (paid $57.90 with all taxes & fees at Priceline) Expect what you paid for. It's not a resort but clean and very good location. Close from many options to eat & drink I recommend the Oakshire Brewing Public House (207 Madison St, Eugene, OR 97402 - 3 minutes by car or 10 walking). Good beer and excellent pizza!
