Spend the night in a former classroom or nuns’ cottage at this renovated 1936 elementary school, located in downtown Bend. No worries about disrupting class here! Have a scotch and some spirited conversation at O’Kanes Pub, settle in the outdoor courtyard to enjoy a pint in the central Oregon sunshine, take in a movie in the theater, rest your bones in our soaking pool after a day spent on the links or the slopes.

TripAdvisor Ratings & Reviews
This place is very relaxing,in a perfect waling distance to downtown Bend.A soaking pool is available, They have live bands almost every night.there is outdoor seating available with fireplaces.Stayed the night in the hotel. we ate dinner outside and breakfast in the bar area.
Great historic building with the added bonus of beer and booze!
Housed in what used to be an old Catholic School, this pub in downtown Bend has a great selection of their own craft beers and spirits. The indoor space is beautiful with lots of wood and outdoor patios are available when the weather is good. I recommend the Terminator Stout if you like dark beers. Heading back to have their Chocolate Old Fasioned made with their own Hogshead Whiskey and homemade Chocolate Bitters...yum. Truley a gem in downtown Bend.
Great property in a fantastic walkable spot
We cruised down to Bend in January and loved staying at Old St. Francis. We've stayed at tons of McMenamins and this one was amazing and not a disappointment at all. The property layout is great, we were able to bring the pups, and check-in was a breeze. The soaking pool is super cool, and the hidden doors all over the property are neat also. For the wintertime, I really enjoyed all the fire pits outside around the property. The best thing about this property is that its walkability to downtown is great.
Great Place, but some prices are outrageous...
Stayed here for the first time - it's a great location in Bend. The attention to detail and history are terrific! Rooms are comfortable and clean. My objection to the prices are the result of late in the evening ordering a drink of Glenkinchie - a single malt Scotch that is my favorite. One shot was $11.50!! Oregon has state control of liquor prices. The price is the same for individuals or restaurant/bars. The bottle is a 750 ML size, which sells for $57.95. There are over 25 shots in a bottle - at $11.50 per shot the bar owner is getting $287.50 on his $57.95 investment. I find that a bit rough....
Service, not so good
Love that an old school was repurposed into a bar and restaurant, among other things. Kudos many times over for doing so. Perhaps our server, and we were at the bar, was having an off day. There were seven at the bar counting the two of us. All the others had been served. He forgot my beer! Seriously, a bartender who forgot my beer. I asked a second person, a woman,who entered the bar, to pour me a beer. Deer in the headlight looks! There was no follow up, after our lunch was served, by either. No how is everything, or anything. Beer was decent. Not a place I would return to. There are so many bars pubs, restaurants in Bend where one is made to feel welcome and special, that there is no need to repeat here.
