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.

Funky Eclectic Brew Pub
This is our favorite breakfast spot when in Bend. Actually, our only breakfast spot. We almost always have the same things, Schoolhouse a fast and 1/2 order of Eggs Benedict (they make their own Hollandaise, yum). We decided to try them out for dinner on this trip. The Elk burger and pub salad were excellent choices. Both large enough to share and accompanied by three delicious beers, Hop Delirium NE Hazy, Crisp Darkness Lager and 5th Floor IPA. The eclectic decor, great service, and relaxed ambiance will keep this a favorite pick for us in one of our favorite places to visit. Take the time and check out one of the McMenimans family of brewery/hotels. One of these days we will actually book a couple of nights and check out all the amenities.
Excellent Stay - No issues
Old St. Francis was a very nice place to stay and reasonably affordable given the area and its popularity. Rooms were very quiet, and no drama from other guests. The soaking pool is just amazing. Loved the Broom Closet bar :)
Just finished a nice dinner here. Good fish and chips and nice, crispy and flavorful Aztec salad. The waiter was efficient and friendly, but best of all was the warm, inviting atmosphere where a conversation is possible because it’s not too noisy. Well done!
Fun, Friendly, Eclectic Experience - A Must Visit!
Great location within walking distance of downtown Bend shops and restaurants. Free parking available on property if you arrive early. Our room was in the Art House, newly built in 2016. Our top floor room (1301) was quiet, with a nice view of the courtyard's lights and firepits. End of the corridor, away from the elevator. Great sleeping on a good mattress. Definitely an eclectic experience with secret rooms, corridors, and funky decorating. McMenamin's employs some great artists, and we enjoyed their work everywhere we explored on this property. Definitely something for everyone with fire pits, salt water soaking pool, a cigar bar, a theater, an Irish Pub, even a Broom Closet entry to a hidden bar - where we enjoyed before dinner cocktails. We will definitely return soon!
Highly Recommend: A "MUST" see, visit & experience place when you are in Bend!
The hotel rooms are very cozy and peppered with the unique "standard" McMenamin-style attention-to-detail everywhere you look. Scavenger hunting for the "hidden rooms" is fun; especially the Broom Closet (i.e. hidden bar)! Deciding to relax in the cigar bar while enjoying a cigar and neat whiskey or out under the stars by the fire pits -- is a fantastic dilemma to find yourself in and pondering as your mood fits! Located downtown, you can easily explore the rest of Bend on foot as everything is located within 3 or 4 blocks. (Highly recommend Hola! which is one-block away) I would also highly recommend the McMenamins Passport as it is a great distraction and frivolous adventure when killing time (although the price is a bit high at $30 -- you do make it back through the stamps your collect and the subsequent rewards). Note: Top floor rooms facing away from the restaurants are somewhat quieter -- but the entire property is highly social so temper your "quiet" expectations accordingly.
