My stay was wonderful. Upon arrival the inn looks a little more old fashioned then I realized from the pictures online. But as soon as I got inside I got to experience a wonderful and beautiful inn with so many amenities that were thoughtful and kind. Melissa showed me around and was so kind and understanding. The breakfast was amazing both mornings and they were considerate of my food allergies. If you are looking for a cute and central place to stay in Eugene then this is the pace for you. Thanks for the great experience Oval Door!

Would definitely recommend!

I've stayed at the Oval Door many times since 2004. I love it! Excellent food. Close in for Eugene. Very attractive rooms. And most important, the innkeepers are the best. They are personable and very welcoming!

First Trip to Eugene

Larger more comfortable rooms than typical bed and breakfast, very nice stay.

A perfect stay

My mom and I were pleased to find a room with two twin beds. The beds were firm and comfortable. Our room was well equipped, especially enjoyed the free wifi, drinks and our own private bathroom. Breakfast was fantastic. We both really enjoyed our stay. Thanks

This charming yet modern inn has a great location close to downtown and University of Oregon. The furnishings are comfortable and attractive, and downstairs there is a wraparound porch with tables and a swing, and an old fashioned library. Breakfasts are generous and creative. Rooms are quiet and clean, with a small frig available on each floor. Stairs may be difficult for some guests.

Great Location

We chose the B&B for its central location in downtown Eugene. The staff was friendly and room was nice. The breakfast was great and quite filling. I would stay here anytime I come back to Eugene.

A wonderful stay

Loved this b&b. No negatives at all, very clean, quiet and the best breakfast ever. Loved our stay in the "bamboo" room, with a king bed and huge bathroom. Great location, within walking distance of Eugene sites, attractions and restaurants. Highly recommend.
