Just stayed in Bend at the Mill Inn for 3 nights, as we explored the town. We were very pleasantly surprised and felt that this place was a great value for the price, even considering our two little cons.
David, the manager, is a fantastic cook. Breakfast every morning is an amazing spread, and even though we were the only people in the whole place on Tuesday night, Wednesday morning we woke up to the same awesome buffet. Quiches, burritos, ham, bacon, eggs to order, the most delicious belgian waffle that was perfectly crispy, scones, toasts, breads, greek yogurt and granola, fruit, etc. AMAZE-balls. Oh, and really good coffee.
Rooms are small but very nicely appointed, and very clean. Bathrooms are tastefully tiled in white and just really cute, with memory foam mats and fluffy white towels. Even the shared bathroom in the hallway is really nice - we are squeamish about sharing but honestly after seeing it in person, we would do that next time, since it's a little cheaper and the bathrooms are just so clean and luxurious!
The owner, Zane, and the manager, David, are both helpful and accommodating. We thought we'd have to stay an extra day and Zane blocked it off for us just in case. David helped out with recommendations on places to eat around town, neighborhoods, etc. The morning we left, they offered to pack us food for the road, and got us to-go cups for coffee.
LOCATION - you can't beat the location. You can walk to the Old Mill District, Mirror Pond and Drake Park, and the whole downtown area, which has a good mix of cheap places and high-end places to eat and shop at. The road the Mill Inn is located on is the one that takes you straight to Mt. Bachelor, only a 15-20 minute drive.
Amenities - basement with foozball, laundry, and a hang out area, and a backyard with a hot tub, fire pit, and hang out "tent" area. FREE WIFI!
You can totally hear your neighbors, so on a crowded weekend be prepared to party.
My BF and I are used to sleeping on a memory foam mattress, so we annoyed each other with our tossing and turning on the regular spring mattress.
