Downtown Eugene Hotels
In my opinion, downtown Eugene is the best place to stay when visiting town. The reason for this is that it is the heart of the city with loads of restaurants, bars, shops and entertainment options all in easy walking distance. Personally, I like being able to walk to dinner from my hotel after a long day and staying downtown is the easiest way to achieve this goal.
Here are some of the best hotels in downtown Eugene:
1. The Gordon
🌟Rating: 9.8/10 I Class: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I 🏩View on Expedia.com
Immerse yourself in the artful ambiance at The Gordon Hotel, which boasts a central location in Eugene’s market district. You’re steps away from artisanal markets and local breweries. The Gordon is a genuine boutique hotel with a large stylish lobby and lots of art.
The lobby/reception area feels like a cool co-working space. It’s a great area to hang out and there are games if you’re in the mood.
There are four types of standard rooms and three suites. All have king size beds, italian linens, Oregon coffee and tea, coffee maker, complimentary wifi and work stations. The design aesthetic is Scandanavian smattered with some bright local art.
We had a great time, love the area in lobby you can play games. My family definitely utilized the space. Check in drink wasn’t bad either.Jordan, Read More Reviews

2. Campbell House Inn
🌟Rating: 8.8/10 I Class: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I 🏩View on Booking.com
If you prefer a quaint and historic stay, Campbell House Inn extends a warm invite with its elegant Victorian charm. It’s situated near Skinner Bute Park (which has some great fairly short walking paths), ideal for those seeking a peaceful retreat. It has a fantastic location just a short walk from downtown but it feels more like you’re staying in a forest due to its location.
Built in 1892, the house was restored as a historic boutique hotel. There are 21 rooms in total across two properties. The main house has 13 rooms, and the nearby Carriage House has 8 suites (this is where I stayed when I visited).

And: Every evening there is a wine reception in the main house.
3. Inn at the Fifth
🌟Rating: 9.6/10 I Class: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I 🏩View on Expedia.com
For a luxurious experience, consider Inn at the Fifth — a boutique hotel offering top-notch service and amenities. It’s nestled in the heart of the 5th Street Public Market, giving you prime access to Eugene’s best shopping and dining.
The rooms at this luxury boutique hotel are plush – italian linen, cozy fireplaces, private balconies, plush bathrobes and much more. Choose between a classic room and a suite.
Inn at the Fifth and the Gordon Hotel are the most high end hotel options in Eugene. From visiting them the key difference between the two is that the Gordon is hipper and more contemporary whereas the Inn at the Fifth is more luxurious.
This is our 2nd stay at Inn on 5th; we returned because we enjoyed it so much the previous time. We liked our room better this time because with 2 queen beds there was more space, the bathroom had a better layout and we had a small balcony. The staff are exceptional and the location is ideal with great restaurants and shops within walking distance.Marline, Read More Reviews

University of Oregon Vicinity
For prospective students, visiting families, or alumni, finding a place near the University of Oregon can provide easy access to campus events. The area is also home to Hayward Field, Hendricks Park, the Museum of Natural and Cultural History, Matthew Knight Arena and Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.
If you’re a runner, this is a great area to stay in as this is kind of where Nike was born (Phil Knight attended the University of Oregon). Plus, there are lots of options for running tracks like Hendricks Park. Hayward Field can sometimes be open to visitors who want to go for a run, but do check, as this is only if there are no events taking place.
5. Timbers Inn
🌟Rating: 8.7/10 I Class: ⭐️⭐️ I 🏩View on Booking.com
Timbers Inn is kind of halfway between downtown Eugene and the University of Oregon but still walkable to the University. It is a funky, 2 star rustic inn and a great value option in Eugene.
