We had a great room at the Holiday Inn Express in Eugene, a one-bedroom suite. I used Priority Club points, and when I made the reservation this suite was the same number of points as a regular room, so I felt like it was an excellent deal.
The bedroom was small, with just a king bed, two nightstands, and a dresser with a flat screen TV, but it had a window that opened, and an air conditioning unit. It also had a real door (unlike some “bedrooms” that are not separate from living areas) that opened into a short hallway. The bed was comfortable, and had a double-sheeted comforter, and four pillows (with pillowcases identifying whether they were “firm” or “soft”)
The bathroom had two sinks, black granite countertop, a Jacuzzi tub, and large separate shower. The rain-shower head was really high – I think a 7-foot tall person could stand under it and not have to duck.
The living area was roomy, with a sofa and coffee table, two upholstered chairs and three end tables, a large dresser, fireplace with a large flat screen TV mounted above it, and a kitchenette area with small round table and two chairs, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, bar sink, granite counter, and disposable dishes.
The breakfast was the usual hotel buffet fare: scrambled eggs (they had to be from a powdered mix), bacon, biscuits and gravy, hard-boiled eggs, small individual yogurts, four kinds of dry cereal, bagels, cinnamon rolls, muffins, coffee, and several kinds of juice.
In the parking lot is a Dutch Bros coffee stand with two drive-through lanes, and a walk-up deck. It’s open from 6am to 11pm. The barista there said there’s another Dutch Bros in Eugene that is open 24-hours a day, which I suppose makes sense for a university town. The hotel is near the Willamette River and a nice, long bike/walking/running path that runs for miles on both sides. There’s a bus stop right in front of the hotel, on a busy street (but with a signal light, so it’s easy to turn).
