Convivial and Hospitable The Frenchglen is an old hotel that is owned by the state and kept, as well as possible, in an old-fashioned state. It’s located in a lovely area that appeals to birders and other nature enthusiasts. So talk at dinner is usually about what you might have spotted on your outing for the day. Staff is very...

My husband & I stayed in the Dover's Inn...the newer part of the hotel. Each room has it's own ensuite bathroom. The accommodations are basic...but met our needs. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. We were participating in an early bird tour so we missed breakfast. Dinner was served family style and was wonderful. Large portions with dessert included....

My husband & I spent one night in the "Drover's Inn" behind the Frechglen Hotel. This was a package tour offered by the "Harney County Migratory Bird Festival". The Drover's Inn is a modern building...each room has ensuite bathroom. Our room was clean and very quiet. The Sage Grouse Tour started at 4am, so we missed the hot breakfast. Dinner...

Frenchglen is a sleepy little hamlet, and the Frenchglen Hotel is its heart and soul. My partner and I stayed three nights right at the end of the hotel's season, October 31. This is like visiting your grandmother's (or great grandmother's) house in which she's lived for seventy or more years--quaint, idiosyncratic, and a little dusty under the beds and...

Wanted to visit Steens and this is one of the closest hotels. Place is old and nicely maintained. Rooms are small and baths are shared but that's ok. Never had to wait to use the ladies restroom or shower. Towels were plenty and all was very clean. Food is family style and very good. Ate here two night and place...

Yes, this is a neat historic hotel right at the gateway to Steens Mountain and the beautiful Malheur Wildlife Refuge. But it would benefit greatly from some good old fashion cleaning and touch ups. My wife and spent one night (room 5) and did enjoy the experience. As the only place to stay in the hamlet they provide a robust...

It was a treat to stop at the Frenchglen Hotel during our travels in the high desert. We needed a respite and it was the perfect place to rest, get clean from camping, and launching a new day with a delicious breakfast. They are ideally located for exploring the Steens Mountains and the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Consider going to...

The hotel sits conveniently at the north entrance to the Steens Mountain loop. It was quiet and restful. We stayed in Drover Inn just behind the hotel. Dinner is served family style and was very good. Guests dine together which made it fun to visit others staying at the hotel. Highly recommended.

This repurposed family farmhouse is a comfortable little hotel with a total of 8 rooms, 5 on the second floor, and 3 in separate cottages out back. It is located in the hamlet of Frenchglen within the boundaries of Malheur National Forest and on the edge of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. The manager, John, is knowledgeable about local road conditions,...

Stayed here 2 nights. Very friendly staff, John. Got room #4 next to girls bathroom. A little noisy but there's not many rooms total so not too bad. Quaint historic hotel just as you would expect-- an older house with small older rooms. We had air conditioning so very comfortable. Shared bathroom was not a problem. Ate dinners and breakfasts...

“Room #2 with two beds may be one of the larger rooms. Front of the house can be noisy in the mornings.”
