“Knowledgeable & Friendly Innkeepers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2010

During a recent visit to Eugene, we stayed at the Oval Door. One of the most unusual and cool things about this place is that both innkeepers have a background in the culinary arts. We went with an idea to go and eat (last time we visited, we couldn't help but notice you're spoiled for choice for great places to eat in Eugene). So -- having no prior knowledge - (except from the EUGENE magazine) we ventured to Eugene and were incredibly lucky to have been able to pick the brain of innkeeper Nicole. Nicole was an incredible wealth of knowledge about restaurants, she gave us so many tips we'll have to returns at least half a dozen times in order to be able to try all the places she recommended. Nicole knows her stuff, we were not disappointed!

We also visited the Cascades Raptor Center (great place if you are interested in raptors), and went for a walk on the Riverwalk path and visited the rose garden (which Nicole had suggested).

The Oval Door is friendly, clean and the food on offer for breakfast is FANTASTIC. Really a great place. My only complaint? The bed was really hard. But otherwise, it was really a great time. I'd return.

A six room Bed and Breakfast in an older restored home located close to downtown Eugene and the University of Oregon. Reasonably priced. Great breakfast prepared by either of the two owners, who are both professionally trained chefs. Usually two choices are offered. Free parking, library, bicycle(s), Internet along with complementary coffee, tea, wine, beer, soft drinks and homemade cookies.
Easy to navigate web site with on line reservations.

Stayed at this wonderful B&B for 6 nights, and were totally thrilled with our experience. The location was great, the room was immaculate, breakfasts phenomenal , staff very friendly. I especially loved the special little "extras" like coffee brought to our room in the morning, and complimentary homemade snacks, soft drinks, beer and wine available anytime. Not a single detail was overlooked. I'd definitely recommend this B&B to anyone who might travel to Eugene...top notch, for sure!!!!!

I guess i expected more when both owners were culinary students. They also wanted to charge us for any lil extras.I never slept because the house is on the corner of a busy street and every 30 minutes you can hear the train go by .

innchefs, owner at The Oval Door Bed and Breakfast Inn, responded to this review, 3 September 2009
We do charge, as a standard practice, for extra guests in the room and extra guests at breakfast. The rest of our services are complimentary. We are a downtown inn, however, the train is 10 blocks away and runs 2-3 times a night. Most of our guests do not hear it, or it is very faint.
