Beautifully renovated hotel. Outstanding!!
Definitely the best place to stay, the tastefully renovated historical hotel in downtown Burns. We were very pleasantly surprised with our stay. To start with, we received very clear and friendly email communications about the hotel beforehand, explaining check-in, services, and the points of interest around Burns. We really liked the streamlined check-in procedure, just using door codes for the hotel and for our room. The location is great, right in downtown Burns, just a short walk from several decent restaurants and the local Safeway. We even saw several herds of deer roaming the city streets in the evening. Our room, “Eastern Prohibition”, was excellent – very roomy and beautifully renovated. We loved the large private bathroom, vanity area, and the excellent shower. No views to speak of, but lots of natural light flooding in. The bed was very comfortable and we had a great night’s sleep. There was a bit of hallway noise getting into the room, but nothing too bad. There was no TV but the free Wifi worked great. We liked looking at all the before and after pictures of the hotel renovations in the hallways. We had an amazing stay and would highly recommend this hotel for your base in Burns. Hopefully we’ll be back.
Absolute gem of a hotel
The couple who renovated this historic hotel did an amazing job. Everything about it was thoughtfully done, made for comfort and fun. The attention to detail in design and decoration fit the hotel's history.
Eastern Oregon’s Gem
Not sure where to begin. Coming across Oregon from Jackson hole Wyoming it was very desolate. We approached three or 4 miles outside of Burns Oregon and my expectations were at best fare. We pulled up in front of the hotel and was shocked. It was or is gorgeous. And that is New York City standards. Incredible details to every single part of the hotel and the rooms.
What beauty a little imagination can create
This hotel had been abandoned and it was derelict before the current owners took over. They seem to have really turned the creative juices on when they did the renovation. There didn't seem to be a single corner that didn't have some wonderful, quirky detail. The room was large, sparkling clean and comfortable. It was far and away the nicest place to stay in Burns which is, basically, a wide spot in the road - well, a small town, anyway. I will say, however, that although we saw comments in the room diary about how wonderful the employees were, at least on Sundays, there is absolutely NO ONE around. One is given a code to open the front door and your room, and you are completely on your own. Now, that may appeal to some people, but I found it a bit creepy. We did see people cleaning the rooms when we "checked out" on Monday morning, but it seems this hotel (and most of Burns) is closed on Sunday.
Perfect! Everything is extremely clean. Beautiful rooms. Fun to learn about the history of the hotel. Nice common areas indoors and a fabulous patio out back to relax. I only wish we'd been here when the taproom was open. Comfortable beds and rooms. It's a very relaxing place to stay and I would definitely stay here again.
