Hotel was fine. Be warned that they charge $10 a night for parking -- the first hotel/motel we've stayed at in Eugene that charges for parking.

The place is unique. Overall I was not impressed. Bed was great found toenails on the floor of our room. Doors that opened and closed were very loud and shook in our room. Unfortunately we stayed the night on an evening where there was a Christmas party ending up on the same floor we were staying. It’s location is great.

I am so sorry that the cleanliness of the hotel was not acceptable. I cannot believe that this was your experience. I am going to be taking this to our housekeeping manager to ensure that this sort of oversight does not happen again. I hope you will give us an opportunity to make it right during your next visit to beautiful Eugene!

Loved the location. Shopping, a trail beside the river. Great swimming pool. Rooms and décor outdated. Still has popcorn ceilings. the bathroom in our room needed repairs.
