Welcome to the forums,
You can find reviews by going to the search bar above and entering McMenamens Edgefield in the bar. I love this place. Lots going on there. (their crack pot show is coming soon. ie: recycled art)
The choices in both cities are many. Eugene isn't that big, so any place you pick downtown or along Franklin would be close to campus. The west side of downtown is not as desirable. When will you be coming? There are some special events coming up that might make your visit even more fun.
Any budget concerns? Recommendations for any particular types of food? Tips on local hikes or walks on the bike paths along both sides of the river (to see eagles, herons, western pond turtles, etc.))?
Portland has literally *hundreds* of lodging options.
I would think with two young adults (plus yourself) you might want something like a Residence Inn with a two-bedroom suite. They have a fold-out couch, in addition to the bedrooms, so each of you could have your own bed (and TV). They have kitchens, and free breakfast. The one in Eugene is near the Willamette River and bike/walking paths. There are a few in Portland, including one also on the Willamette, close to the street car line.
No affiliation; just stay at Residence Inns sometimes.
If you like a B&B option - try the Oval Door in Eugene. It's not next to campus, but campus is only a short drive. The rooms are nice, and breakfast is wonderful.
Haven't stayed in Portland yet, so can't advise you there.
There are lots of b&b options, several closer to campus (including the Excelsior Inn on 13th a short block from the UofO book store; Secret Garden on University Ave and Cambell House, between downtown and Skinner Butte) . I'd save the fancy & more expensive b&b for parents weekend or graduation. If your young adults want a campus vibe, I'd stick to the previously mentiond areas: downtown, Franklin and just across the river at the Residence Inn or La Quinta.
