WONDERFUL (4.5 out of 5)

Pleasant - 3.1 out of 5

Al Mon, 13 May 2019


Disliked: We got in early and asked for a notification when our room was ready. We came back at 1:30, hoping to change because it was 90 degrees out. Our room was still not available. We received a call at 3:45 saying our room was ready. 15 minutes before check in. The afternoon front desk staff was rude upon check in. We later asked to speak to a manager and we were informed one was not available. We asked for a phone call from a manager, which we never received. We checked to make sure they got our message, and staff said they had. We stayed two nights and never heard from a manager.

Very mediocre hotel not worth...

Liked: Staff was very friendly and location was great
Disliked: My towel wasn?t clean, it had left over food on it. The continental breakfast was not as glamorous as the reviews said. Only good thing was the avocado toast. And the room was very basic all ikea furniture. Plus the bathroom door latch broke and the door wouldn?t stay shut


Good - 4 out of 5

Beautiful hotel with helpful staff.

Liked: Location was right downtown, you could walk to Powells Books and Deschutes Brewery. Very nice rooms. Free wine tasting when we arrived got us off to a good start!
Disliked: The breakfast was mixed. I enjoyed mine but my wife had oatmeal and coffee that wasn't very good.

A nice location with comfy...

Liked: The staff are amazing! Kristin was so helpful as was all of the staff! The breakfast was good which included pastries, bread, muffins, cereal, fruit salad, yogurt, avocado, and oatmeal (with ALL THE FIXINS!) The location is central and it's easy to walk everywhere.
Disliked: I was awakened on both nights/early morning of my stay. Guests returning to their room at 2:30am-3:30am and talking was easily heard and woke me. In addition, the guest doors slam when they close, and woke me numerous times. On Monday at 5am there was a very loud baby crying that awoke me.
