We have stayed at this property at least annually for at least 20 years prior to the pandemic. We always looked forward to it. However, when we arrived recently, we were surprised at the state of the property. Very poor condition. Dirty, worn out carpets, walls, etc. need paint. Inexperienced staff. I have not experienced such a state of decline with other Eugene hotels. I can only hope the owners can arrange an upgrade soon. Disappointing!

AM coffee should have milk available. Menu(s) should be posted outside restaurant. For best service, people should be escorted to their hard to find rooms.

Booked a last-minute stay here; the room was large/spacious, but definitely dated (wall paper was lifting off the wall, upholstered seating in the hallway had holes, etc). The coffee table and sofa pullout bedding were both missing (had to text & call for bedding - easily remedied // the coffee table was a bummer though - nice to have a table surface for kiddos). Not sure if this is a thing, but it felt like we were in an overflow/backup room that didn’t get used often, hence why it was missing stuff. There was a $10 parking fee - minor, but I don’t remember seeing that when I booked, so an FYI. Our view was upgraded since they were out of what I booked, and staff was super friendly! We would def stay here again - but not quite the pristine rooms I remember.

Had a horrible experience with shuttle service. Scheduled but driver would not take us to airport as it “wasn’t on her route”. Why advertise airport shuttle then not provide it. Reserved for 430 am and caused a lot of tense moments. Hotel did nothing to help us. A taxi driver in the area made provisions for us. Also smoker on balcony next to us in nonsmoking area. Complained to front desk and no response for 2 1/2 hrs.
