We knew we would love it or hate it, and we loved it. The small size was great! Loved the movie and the soaking tub. The location is within walking distance of the river and a lot of fun restaurants and bars. The one drawback I can see what it was very difficult to find the check in desk. But... More

I wish we could have stayed here for a week rather than just the one night. McMenamins is a destination in its own right; we felt like we were still discovering things right up until we left. We had a great room; the whole place is oozing with character. Staff were friendly and welcoming. In-house restaurant was great - good... More

Stayed at the Old St Francis School the first week of July and would do it again. After taking some time figuring out how to reach the reception desk, I was greeted by a couple of very friendly, helpful staff members, given a map (actually kinda necessary though there aren't that many rooms) and the card key, and checked in...

Lovely place to stay. Rooms are very comfortable. Service at the hotel is great. Grounds are wonderful place just to be in and enjoy. Went to the theatre to watch a movie, which is complementary with a hotel room. Had breakfast in the restaurant and had a lovely breakfast of Eggs Benedict. Bend is a lovely place to wonder around.... More

I have been a McMenamins fan for over 20 years. They do a fantastic job of renovating old historic buildings and giving them new charm. The artwork and the some of the relics they put into these places is enough reason to visit, but the food and the beer is always great. We only got to stay for a late... More

Old Catholic school converted into hotel. In downtown Bend, close to restaurants, boutiques and park. Nice comfortable rooms, good service. Has soaking pool, restaurant/bar, and movie theater, (but we did not use these). After 10 pm, no minors in these areas.

I was assigned to Dorothy McCool's room. As I passed the students water fountain, I imagined the joyious sound of children in the hall-way before class. When you stay here you feel a part of the past filled with warm memories. It was an hohor and priviledge to be a guest in this special place.

A great alternative to the motels along the highway and shopping malls. The Old St Francis is downtown next to all the local restaurants and shops. At the hotel it was hard to choose which activity to take advantage of. There are three bars a restaurant a pool cigar room and several cute garden patios. The happy hour is a... More

Casual and fun atmosphere. They have a movie theatre which serves food on older couches. Salt water pool which is beautiful. McMenamins are themed older properties with historic significance. Each location is unique and elements of what the building was are brought to life in artistic and quirky fun ways. This isn't fancy but is clean. They also have various... More
