An older hotel with both charm and drawbacks. What isn't made clear is that all rooms do not have ensuite bathrooms. Sink is what was the old standard and that maintains today, so ask about the bathroom when you reserve. Diners seem to be enjoying their meals in the restaurant, I ate elsewhere. No TV (I don't need one), good Wifi, but my first room was very small and no table or chair, I switched. The hotel is an experience. Bakery for breakfast next door which looks charming. The fare is ordinary. None of the pastries measure up to good standards.

I loved the property itself, very quirky and fun but the staff was not very nice. Not only that but they didn’t give us the room we advertised and there was no TV to entertain yourself in the rooms. The rooms were also terribly small, there was hardly any room to move around. We were kept up all night from the homeless population around the area breaking glass and shouting and also felt a bit unsafe leaving our car out in street parking. Not the best stay.

I stay at the McMenamins once or twice a year. The location is great and is nice clean property. Make sure you know the bathroom situation before booking a room. The community bathroom is secure and clean. Stay on the Evans Street side if possible it is much quieter.

Fantastic rooftop bar!!!!! Very friendly staff and the view is great!

I knew in advance that there would be a communal bathroom. I should have given that more thought before booking this place. That said, I felt sorry for the folks who were directly across the hall from the bathroom. You had to unlock the bathroom door with your key, and I could hear the door shut all the way down the hall. It must have been lovely hearing that all night. Perhaps even more annoying were the minimal conditions of the room. I assume that decorating the walls with writing and 5th grade artwork constitutes their idea of charming. Other than the bed, there was only one folding stand for a suitcase. Not even a chair. The pipes in the sink squealed at night. The bed was uncomfortable, and the pillow even had one of those plastic tags inside used in cheap department stores to control for theft. The front desk said there would be coffee on the 3rd floor with newspapers. This was technically correct, but it turned out to be just an alcove with paper cups and brewed coffee from an old dispenser. To get there, I thought I'd use the stairs. However, they were locked to floor entry, which means I ended up in the alley behind the building before I could go back up 3 floors to get to the coffee in the morning. In essence, this is a hostel for aging hippies on a tight budget. If that floats your boat …. But if you're like most people, McMenamins means beer, mediocre food, and stupid accommodations.

We loved our stay! The hotel history is very cool and the rooms and public areas have a great feel.

Cool hotel but the staff was extremely slow and not very attentive.

We stayed at The Grand Lodge hotel the night before, so maybe expectations were high. But the room was only big enough for the bed, super claustrophobic. The pillows were horribly unfilled. The bedding was army style rough. And the building smelled so bad. Do yourself a favor and stay at The Grand Lodge instead.

This is a great historic hotel, full of character and charm. Friendly staff. Had a lot of fun.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your experience with us and the Red Fox bakery next door. You nailed it with your comment about this hotel being an experience. If your looking for a run of the mill boring hotel, look elsewhere. We strive to to provide our guests with a memorable experience from the funky artwork to our scratch made meals and drink. We do try to be as straight forward as possible about the common or shared bathroom situation at the hotel. A room with a private bath can always be requested from the front desk. We hope to see you again soon! Cheers, Alex McMurry Hotel Manager Hotel Oregon

Hello Mona, Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback for us. I do apologize for all the noise and breaking glass outside. We are a historic hotel with the building built in 1905 so with that comes some quirks. Rooms can be smaller than modern hotels and do lack TVs. Our building does feature WiFi which can be used all over the building at no additional cost. I am concerned of the unfriendly staff; I will touch base with the staff. Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback and I hope you give us another chance in the future. Cheers ~ Cody

Hello, I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy yourself. We are a historic hotel and very different than the conventional hotels that it sounds like you are used to. We do have private bath options available that you can enquire about at the front desk. These rooms are a bit larger in general and offer more seating options. The plastic tag that you found on your pillow is a part of the encasement not an “anti-theft” device. We understand that everyone has a differing preferences when it comes to bedding and mattresses. We do our best to source mattresses that meet the average sleeper’s needs and are reviewed highly. Our company roasts our own coffee beans and they are served no more than one week after roasting. There are multiple coffee shops in the surrounding areas if you are looking for something more mainstream. Thank you for your feedback, we hope that you have a wonderful day! Cheers, Alex McMurry Hotel Manager Hotel Oregon

not that interesting

Everyone

We stayed at The Grand Lodge hotel the night before, so maybe expectations were high. But the room was only big enough for the bed, super claustrophobic. The pillows were horribly unfilled. The bedding was army style rough. And the building smelled so bad. Do yourself a favor and stay at The Grand Lodge instead.

Hi Lisa, I am so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Our rooms are defiantly on the smaller side when compared to the Grand Lodge. Hotel Oregon was originally built as a hotel back in 1905. Since people were smaller and the nature of travel was much different, the rooms are on the small side when compared to conventional or reconstructed hotels. There are a few larger rooms on property that guests can inquire about at the front desk. I will be checking into the issue that you had with the bedding. All of our hotels use the same bedding materials including feather pillows. Thank you for being a loyal McMenamins guest and for bringing your concerns to our attention. Regrets, Alex McMurry Hotel Manager Hotel Oregon
