If you are in Bend, you must stay here. Rooms are comfortable and clean; great cable for TV. Hotel and restaurant staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Restaurant food was delicious. This property is definitely more geared towards adults with pubs, theater, and warm soaking pool, but I found it great for myself and young traveler. The other family's experience...

We have stayed at several McMenamins hotels and have never had such a disappointing experience as this stay. We were given no warning or written notice that our children were not welcome in the soaking pool after 7 pm. We checked in and no mention of restrictions in hours for minors. We checked out the pool the morning before skiing...

McMenamins is always a fun locale, and this one is no exception. Great central location to shops, restaurants, and all downtown Bend has to offer. This particular McMenamins had several bars, live music, free movie theater movies and a soaking pool. The room was rustic with pine walls and ceiling. But the beds, and particularly the Flintstone-esqu, rock-hard pillows left...

We spent only one night but what a night it was. We ate at the restaurant and if you go during Happy hours the beers are cheaper. The hotel is quite and very comfortable. They also have a beautiful soaking pool that looks like a roman bath. Dressing rooms and lockers are available for your use. This is an A+...

The Old St. Francis School integrates atmosphere, whimsy, history into each room and throughout the property. Our room was called the "Fegan Brothers" a cosy double queen room, named after two boys who were known sports enthusiasts and supporters of the school. The furnishings were lovely without being ostentatious but having an old American charm. The host greeted us warmly....

...because I don't want others to know about this gem. Selfish, I know, but I loved this place. If you like unusual, quirky, not overly luxurious but certainly homey and comfortable then this is your place. It is an old school that has been charmingly refurbished into a great hotel. There is a movie theater, several bars and restaurants, some...

Like other McMenamins Hotels, the Old St. Francis School integrates art, atmosphere, history, and whimsy into each room and throughout the property. Our room was a spacious yet cozy king suite which had the surprising addition of not one, but two claw-foot soaking tubs in the over-sized bathroom. The furnishings were lovely without being ostentatious. The hostess greeted us warmly...

Unfortunately I didn't have enough time here to really experience everything the hotel had to offer but I am determined to return and stay again. The rooms were great and the only minor complaint I can come up with was that it was a little dark. Given how much the hotel has going on it was surprisingly quiet, although I...
