SE Oregon is full of stunning visuals and natural beauty. However, finding a place to stay overnight other than your own tent or have a meal in style is rare in this remote, desert corner of this beautiful state. The Frenchglen hotel is a special find and worth to stop by for a meal. We did just that for the...

Stay here to experience the history—not for great luxury or amenities. Our room was a tiny, 10’x9’ space with bad lighting and no private bathroom. We were prepared for this, and the room was reasonably comfortable. An improvement would be good reading lights on both sides of the bed and extra pillows. Dinner and breakfast are available at the hotel,...

We spent three nights at the hotel which gave us a chance to explore the Malheur Wildlife Refuge and nearby areas in depth. The place is historic, congenial and really special. We stayed in "The Drover's Inn" behind the main hotel as it was one of the few rooms with two beds. Meals at the hotel are served "family style"...

We stayed two nights. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and dogs were allowed. The room with shared baths are small but adequate. You can get breakfast and lunch down stairs. Dinner is family style and reservation only. The people who work there are very nice. I would recommend it!

I believe that most of the 4 and 5 star reviews here are for the experience of staying in a tiny hamlet of 11 people in the middle of nowhere but right across from the Malheur Refuge. And it is indeed pretty cool to stay in this picturesque and undeniably remote part of the country. But hotel reviews are supposed...

This is my second visit since first in 2003. Frenchglen is located in an isolated area of southeast Oregon. My rating is as much for the experience as the accommodations. This is a fun place to stay. Staff is very friendly - serve first class family style meals on first floor - set menu and price for dinner. Beer and...

Wonderful hosts, and cozy rustic room. The rooms in the old hotel are small, about 10x10, but what a great experience. The double bed is really quite comfortable for 2, with warm comforters. It snowed and rained while we were there, and it was beautiful to see the storms. Great base camp for seeing the Steens Mountain area and the...

We always wanted to visit the Steens, and staying at the Frenchglen Hotel was a perfect experience. The hosts are very friendly, the dinner and breakfasts wonderful, and the mountain majestic. The rooms in the hotel share bathrooms, and the communal dining room is also the hotel lobby. There are several more recently-built rooms about 100' from the hotel, and...

This historic hotel has character and would be an enlightening experience for any traveler who has not stayed in such an old lodging. Stayed over one night while en route to No. Cal. Pretty much the same as my last stay here in 1986, but the overall atmosphere was less friendly & spirited. Still just one bathroom per floor, but...

Great Chef, great housekeeper (thanks C for your wonderful chat with us!), hubby sure surprised to discover we were spending the night and enjoying the home-style dinner and breakfast the following day. The staff did a WONDERFUL job helping me put this surprise together for our year-long celebration of our 50th wedding Anniversary! AND big ludos for letting us park...

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

“Be prepared for small rooms and bathrooms down the hall, but cherish the beauty and history.”
