After driving from Vancouver BC to Eugene OR in one day we needed a good sleep. First we stopped at Timbers Motel, because their vacancy sign was lit, but we were turned away. A little way down the road was Campus Inn. We were about to get out of the car when we saw a large group of people drinking outside of one of the rooms. The large quantity of booze and loud music scared us away. All we were looking for was a quiet night. The next motel on broadway was Broadway Inn.
From the curb side, the Broadway Inn appears to be out of the 1950s. It's like the fog opened and instead of Brigadoon appearing, the Broadway Inn appeared.
Inside the office was a friendly worker at the front desk. She offered us one of the last rooms, which she noted is small and only has a queen bed. We told her that was fine. Next came the price, which I must say shocked me (but in a good way). We didn't have a coupon or a groupon, but the price she quoted was $60, including tax!
We pulled the van into the parking space infront of our room and I was a liitle worried. To arrive at 8:30pm, get a room without a reservation, have it only cost $60, and then have it be clean and comfortable seemed like we would be asking too much. Apparently we weren't.
The room was a little dated, but only in a charming way. I immediately pulled back the sheets to see if the was a catch only to find a clean, bed bug free mattress.
The room had all the modern conveniences: tv, heater, closet, dresser, microwave, and fridge. The bathroom was small but cute and even had a hair drier.
Our sleep was good and quickly followed by a delicious breakfast.
We enjoyed our stay in this charming throwback motor hotel and would definitely come again.
