We come back to this hotel year after year for a few days for several reasons. First, we can park our car and not use it again for the duration of our stay. We walk to local restaurants, shops, theaters and to the beautiful Lithia park close by. Second, the included breakfast is really tasty and varied. Finally, the price...

Ryan at the front desk was very warm and welcoming and concerned that our car wouldn't fit in their covered garage - in barely made it! There was plenty of free parking and great that you...

The room was large but very dark. The phone was missing a plug and the temperature of the water for morning showers was very erratic. nearly scalded myself. Breakfast food was mediocre at best but given that it was complimentary I suppose that's all one can expect. Great location....just near enough to everything for easy walking but not in the...

Because we had issues with another hotel in town, we made last minute arrangements for a two-night stay. The front desk staff was very patient and accommodating, giving us our various room options despite the fact that they were nearly fully booked. We have stayed here in the past, and we noticed improvements in the professionalism of the staff and...

This hotel is convenient for attending the Oregon Shakespeare Festival; it is within walking distance of the theaters and shopping and dining. It is a bit run down. Our room's carpet had holes in it near the door, and the water pressure in the shower was a little on the low side. The bathroom was little, too. But the room...

Even the check-in was worth the price of admission. Very entertaining and sharp guy. We were checking in rather late, just traveling through the area, and decided to spend the night on a whim. Absolutely great value. Much better than expected, and a really excellent experience. The room was clean, well appointed, and very comfortable. Excellent deal!!!
