Needs a bit of a re do
I have stayed at this hotel over 30 years. Beautiful location with the mall across the street. However.... very dated and needs some sprucing.
Cheryl, us1 night family trip
Good 6.0
I have stayed here many times since graduating from UO in the early 90s and its still one of the best places in Eugene. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, with great location on the river and bike path. However, over the last several years, I have noticed that the front desk is not very friendly (but rest of staff typically is). Don't expect smiles or welcomes from a check-in experience at VRI. They also started charging $10 for parking beginning Jan 2021, which seems ridiculous given the location.

Needs some updates.
We would have liked for the room to have been ready much earlier than it was and the sliding glass door was in desperate need of repair. We could barely open it at all. Would have made the stay much nicer for the fresh air, as the weather was great. Everything else was good.

Shopping mall at your fingertips.
Convenient location. Just stayed the night after a long drive. Located near shopping, restaurants all within walking distance. Property in my opinion could use a little TLC.

Poor 2.0
Awful Experience!
Never staying there again, had to switch room twice. for a non-smoking property people were constantly smoking below us and the smoke was going into our room, second room the metal railing on the balcony broke when I learned on it. scared the crap out of me see photo
James, us2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Was not aware they charge for parking. We loved the bike path along both sides of the river. It made a great start to the day.

Quiet room, outdated but I'm not buying it so I don't care. Restaurant was 3 stars but hotel was fine. I think paying $10 to park is ridiculous though.
Paula, us1 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
The hotel is dated and there was so little service staff that every request was challenging. Most of the hotel facilities were not availlable.

Great place to stay
Hotel is well kept, room are nice layout. Walking trail and mall are right there.
Greg J, us5 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great weekend!
We had a great stay. I don't understand why we pay for parking as I saw no security, but it is what it is. We had a ground floor, pet friendly room. It was clean and had no odor at all. The room was much larger than I expected with a large pull out couch and chair. Also a coffee table/ottoman and a desk. The internet was spotty, so sometimes watching TV at night was a challenge, but we were not there to watch TV anyway. There were two nice grassy areas for my puppy to play and lots of paved trail for walking along the river. Most amenities were closed, but they had a small store where you could purchase snacks which was great. Area is quiet and there is a restaurant within walking distance and the small "mall" is across the street. We will definitly stay again.
