Retirement Home still acts as Hotel
Room was small and interesting. We had our own bathroom, shower very very small. Each room had a story which was high point. Group bathrooms in need of repairs ( glad didn't have to use). Food was very average, service below average. A two day stay resulted in 1 service person smile and greeting. The entire are need to be cleaned and repaired. Bird poop all over side entrance. Soaking pool jets not working, no ability to have tab in bar ,even though guest had $50 hold per day on credit card. I have stay at Motel 8's that were better and cost was $200+ a day.
Eventually won us over
We had a mixed experience and would only recommend if you can get a King suite. When we checked in we were given a key to our Queen room (with a private bath!). When we opened the door we were shocked both by the tininess of the room and by its dinginess. There was barely enough room to open our suitcases. Then we found out that the air conditioning didn't work. After much back and forth, the desk clerk put us in a King suite, which was MUCH better: spacious, comfy, and funkily decorated, but only available for one night. The next day, they moved us to another, slightly larger and slightly less dingy Queen room for the remainder of our stay. Other plusses: the hotel is really nicely decorated, the breakfasts are excellent (definitely get the Sunrise Packing if you stay there), the soaking pool is delightful, and the grounds are beautiful. Other minus: none of the staff and few of the guests wear masks indoors. There was a wedding on the grounds while we were there (which I guess is how they get people to stay in the dingier rooms), but the noise was largely over by bedtime.
Such a disappointment.
Came here with my daughter ( 15) for the night, We were so excited because the hotel sounded great and looks so beautiful. I reserved a room on the 2nd floor because all the reviews said to do that in order to get away from the noise of the restaurant/bar. Made my reservation over the phone so I could make that request - The person said sure no problem. Great! No -- Not great. You see where this is going ... We get here after a long road trip only to be put in a room on the first floor right in the throng of the very active hallway leading to the bar/restaurant. No privacy, and super loud. It's a thoroughfare. I chose a room with a common bath because that was what was available on the second floor away from the loud people coming to and from the bar. Now we're stuck in this loudly obnoxious tiny room and the bathroom is not just down the hall but at the other end of the hotel - yes i have to pass by the bar that opens up to the hallway to get there. -_- so fun. I Wish I had gotten reservations anywhere else. Staff was .... okay. I can't blame them for something that was out of their control... but was it? They said when I checked in that they don't really reserve rooms.... but all of the other reviews here have said otherwise and of course the person I made the reservation with confirmed that I would be on the 2nd floor. ..... so yeah I kind of blame them very much, I am a flawed human. I'm so disappointed. I have reservations at another McMenamins hotel in a few days, and I'm going to try to cancel.
Classic McMenamins Hotel
We spent one night in a queen room with private bath. The room was typical of McMenamins' old-remodeled-historic-building hotels. Dedicated to Japanese students from Pacific University, the walls bore quotes from them as well as their portraits. Atypically, the room was smaller than we expected, with just the bed, an end table, and a single straight chair. We kept our suitcases on the floor, and made use of the window-sill for some of our "stuff." The bathroom, on the other hand, was large and modern, with hooks and a shelf for toiletries. The bed was firm, but comfy, and we enjoyed the plush terry robes. The night was exceptionally quiet--no need to use the provided earplugs. Everything felt clean and fresh, but as we packed up in the morning we discovered someone else's hiking boots under the bed, which made us question the thoroughness of the housekeeping... Honestly, we didn't spend much time in the room. Twice we walked the grounds and enjoyed all the blossoming trees and many unusual plants. The halls, as with all McMenamins properties, are like a museum. And we also spent time in the "Magic Flute Room," stretched out on couches with our books and electronics (No issues whatsoever with wi-fi.). Every staff member we interacted with was friendly and helpful. Specifically, Brynn, who took my phone reservation, was cheerful and welcoming as she checked us in and then later stamped our passports and issued our prizes. An interesting and fun place to stay!
A Pretty Place to Avoid
PROS: Beautiful property, inside and out. The hotel rooms are very cozy and peppered with the unique "standard" McMenamin-style attention-to-detail everywhere you look. Received all of my stamps! CONS: Sadly, there were several issues with this location. It started with at check-in, which was reminiscent of a painful visit to the dentist. I am not talking a simple lackluster and disinterested experience but rather, a downright unfriendly borderline hostile encounter. The best way I can describe it would be a general sense of ambivalence peppered with a overwhelming attitude of passive-aggressive annoyance -- all for the sheer audacity of showing up and asking them to do their job! This is especially noteworthy as previous experiences (at other locations) have never even approached the level of minor annoyance. The soaking pool was crowded by loud and obnoxious teenagers which was more than annoying -- perhaps made more so by the fact that the lockers were unlock-able and the staff refused to enforce their own rules. The breakfast/dinner experience of the main restaurant was also below par. A two-hour wait for inside but outside is virtually empty (only a single couple) and so as easy choice it would seem. Quickly seated with menus and then the wait began. Apparently, the two hour wait was not due to seating but lack of servers. The server took forever just to deliver drinks that were ordered before she left. The food order that finally arrived was incorrect on several counts and rather than issuing a simple apology, she gave her impression of what I call "frustrated dinner theater". Mistakes are made and not an issue but to give such a performance and then to add insult-to-injury, still leave the incorrect order on the ticket! Anyway, everyone just seemed to be too busy or not interested anywhere you went on the property. Sad to say, One of worst times I have ever had at a McMenamins. Hopefully my experience was a "one-off" but you have been forewarned.
