Originally built in 1922 as a Masonic & Eastern Star home, the Grand Lodge is off the beaten path in Washington County wine country, thirty minutes west of Portland. After exploring local vineyards, enjoy a meal in our Ironwork Grill or Yardhouse Pub, unwind in the soaking pool or get a massage from Ruby’s Spa. Later, stroll the gardens, play some pool in the Doctors Office or share a bottle of wine in Bob’s Bar.

Different in this case was good. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of McMenamins. The detail of taking care of this old building is amazing. Every corner is artistically designed. I can not imagine the effort it takes to maintain these buildings and the grounds, but they do it very well. This is definitely a hive of activity for the area, not just a hotel. With several bars, a first run movie theater that serves food and drinks, and ample meeting rooms. It even has a doctor's office, another bar, but often just what the doctor ordered. The hotel is hostile/hotel highbred. Some of the rooms have shared baths. The one I stayed in was a queen with a private bath. No T.V.s in the room which I found surprisingly liberating. The room was well lit, had updated climate control and even a separate heater in the bathroom. The only downside to the stay was the bed. It was an older spring mattress that caused some muscle tension in the mornings.

I expect so much more from McMenamins, especially after all the amazing experiences from other locations such as Edgefield, the Crystal Ballroom and more... but the Grand Lodge is nothing to write home about, nor does its staff seem to understand the company or want to work here as multiple employees expressed to us that McMenamins was too corporate for them... (I’ve never thought the company was too corporate... despite being a chain of sorts) but what does this say about the Grand Lodge?? And how does it translate to having employees that are willing to make the guest experience exceptional? Take a guess, but come here for the stamps and get out. The Spa, soaking bath, and other amenities are better elsewhere.
A mechanical and unfriendly welcome should have warned me to flee but I was lured here by good reviews so stayed one night. It was raining hard but had to return to my car to put a parking sticker on. Tried to go to the heated pool but there was nowhere dry to place clothes apart from unlockable lockers so when it started to rain again everything got soaked. Room was tiny, dark and dysfunctional with shared bathroom down the hall. Did not eat in either of the restaurants as it was mainly a dispiriting menu of burgers and pizza. The quaintness of the building was not matched by the lack of hospitality.
Converted old "retirement home" kind of place with a huge garden and an outdoor pool that's hidden! Good dining room. Our room was small with not much storage but everything else made up for it; well worth the stay. Historical photos galore in the hallways. Not too far (3-4 miles) from the end of light rail (at Hillsboro) to Portland.
Such a great place for my fiance's 40th birthday Party! Lots of fun things to do, places to eat and drink, but they certainly charge you plenty for everything, including hourly rates for pool and shuffleboard in the bar. Since we stayed the night we were able to use the soaking pool near the spa. Since it was her birthday I splurged on a spa package for her, then went across the street and got an amazing pedi for a lot less than what I paid for hers. We used a Tripster Voucher for our room, but then had to pay an additional $40 to upgrade to a room with a private bathroom.
