It is what it is - a budget motel. As long as you don't expect the Ritz, this will do you just fine in Eugene. We stayed the night after a Ducks game so it was more than normal, but MUCH less than other similar motels. One huge factor is the location. It is right on the main drag (Franklin) in front of campus. The guy at the desk was bright and cheery. The pool was clean and a great time waster for the kids. Another bonus is the motel is one level so you don't have to worry about stompers above you. Free wifi and continental breakfast (bagels and fruit). I will agree with another reviewer that the bathrooms could use a little updating.
One thing i would have never expected is sound proof walls. Let me back up a bit. When we got home from dinner, we discovered the room next to us was a bunch of college kids having a pre-funk. Now, personally, more power to ya kids. But the fact was my wife and I had our two small kids (4,6) with us and they would be going to bed soon. I didn't want to be THAT guy and tell the college kids they couldn't have their fun, so I went to see if we could switch rooms. Turns out the only one available was on the other side of them. But much to my surprise, when I closed our door, I couldn't hear ANYTHING from their room and trust me, they were being plenty rowdy. Aside from them smacking the wall a couple times (Stanford was in the process of beating USC-yeah!), they weren't a bother at all. The manager even came back and offered another room a while later and we declined.
Bottom line, I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to folks looking for a solid deal on a budget motel in the heart of Duck country.
