This is my 3rd stay at a McMenamins, 2 in Bend once in Portland. I chose the alter bots rooms had double showers and 2 wonderful tubs, 238.00 a night. All was great until we went to bed, the hardest mattress I've ever slept, my husband finally moved to the couch. In the morning they leave your flavor of fresh... More

The title says it all. Very uncomfortable. Nice room, two tubs were great. Hidden bar full at 3:30 pm. Cigar bar and outside seAting always Google. They missed providing coffee and a paper, and breakfast was cold. Typical McMinmens!

Stayed here on a "just for fun" trip with my wife. Enjoyed a soak in the refreshing heated pool, puffed cigars and whiskey next door by an open fire, and enjoyed some good grub...all without leaving the immediate area of the hotel. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys history or just a quaint, relaxing environment.

I took my two young grandchildren (4 & 6) for an overnight, movie (all at McMenimins so jammies for the movie), meal and swimming at the fabulous indoor swim pool. This gave the parents a night out and then we met for breakfast the next morning at one of the restaurants at McMenimins. Superb time! never needed tv.

This is an awesome place to spend an evening. My wife and I started our evening by soaking our troubles away in the indoor soaking pool, which is available for non-hotel guests, then spent some time listening to the live band. Our next quest brought us in search of the bar hidden in the broom closet. Yes, I wrote hidden... More

McMenamins Old St. Francis School is more an experience than a place to stay. The rooms are old-school charming. The 'Secret Rooms" (especially the "Broom Closet") add a touch of magic to the stay. The lovely courtyard and the unique restaurants and pubs make it an ideal place to relax and dine....no need to drive to a restaurant or a... More

Having been to other McMenamins in Oregon and enjoyed the fun atmosphere , we thought we would try the one in Bend. Sorry to say, it was not the fun time we have had at their other locations. It is a little more out of the Amani downtown, so probably doesn't get a lot of foot traffic. We went for... More

Didn't see any of the rooms just stopped in for a drink and to check off one of the stops on the "Bend Ale Trail". This is an old school house and has a lot of character, drinks were good, and the bartender was awesome. Take a look around at the theater and the pool, just ask the bartender and... More

My fiance and I stayed here in the Altar Boy room, it was wonderful! Double bathtubs, comfy King bed and spacious room! Food and drink were delicious and unique! The soaking room is gorgeous and super relaxing!! Had a great time exploring the art house and it's hidden rooms and bar. We will definitely be back!!

We stayed at the Old St. Francis School during a visit to Bend primarily for checking out the breweries and completing the Ale Trail. We selected to stay here because it its location and price compared to other hotels. We had never stayed at a McMennamins property before, but had heard plenty about them and were prepared for a bit... More
