“Lied about change of reservations...Rip off artists!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2009

Made a reservation on Orbitz and called the motel directly(BIG MISTAKE) to change the reservation for two days later. I was told that it was no problem but when I showed up, they had no rooms and charged my credit card any way. NOT TO BE TRUSTED! STill fighting with my credit card company. Stay away, many more honest motel owners in Eugene.

I stayed at this hotel during the local festival Eugene Celebration and couldn't have been more satisfied! Walking distance to Eugene's downtown and a quick bus ride away to any where you might want to go to enjoy Eugene! It looks very modest from the outside but is kept very clean! The owners of the property are very personable and keep the price very affordable. Don't let the pictures on Orbitz, Hotels.com, or anyother website fool you it is a great motel! Book your room directly through the motel and save yourself the fees the onlines agencys charge and get the same rate!

I have to agree with other travelers who like the Downtown Motel for its clean, no-frills, budget rate rooms. I liked that it had that old-timey roadside motel feel to it, yet was newly refurbished, painted, clean and comfortable. It's within walking distance of several restaurants if the simple continental breakfast isn't enough for you. Friendly staff and great rates. If I return to Eugene, I will definitely keep this place in mind.

Basic no frills motel. I did get my requested two queen room. Free wi fi. Right downtown walk to anywhere. If you just need a nice clean place to stay, this is it. So, clean, comfortable, spacious room and well located if you want to be downtown.

Stayed here enroute from BC to San Diego based on TripAdvisor reviews and price. It was OK and the price reflected its value. Good beds, clean unit in a quiet, decent location is what we wanted and that's what we got. Think of a no-frills motel complex from the 60's but nicely updated.

The clerk was helpful and our expectations were met. A good bet for a short stay.

I'll be honest, this place is kind of a dive but the price is good. The location is very certral to UofO and the rest of Eugene, but you pretty much get what you pay for in terms of the room and everything else -- not that it's all bad. The room I had was relatively quiet and comfortable and appeared to be somewhat clean. There were some stains on the ground and bed cover that probably come with some good stories if the walls could talk but they were tolerable given the price. The room did include wifi, which was super slow, and a very basic breakfast but I guess you can't expect too much with the kind of prices they charge. The people were quite friendly though and that certainly counts for something. All in all, if you are looking for a place to simply lay your head down on the cheap, this is a reasonably good spot. Just don't expect too much.

This IS one of the older motels in town but the owners are constantly upgrading the rooms to keep them comfortable. New beds and bathroom fixtures this year are good examples.

Walking distance to some GREAT restaurants and the funky west eugene neighborhoods. Just 1 block from the always eclectic live music at the WOW Hall and 2 blocks from the best Pizza in town at Pipeline Pizza.

If you need a place to sleep and don't need luxury this is the place. The people are friendly and will do what they can to help you with whatever you need. I Like IT!

  • Liked — location and service
  • Disliked — sometimes I forget to call ahead and they are full.
