Spent three nights at Secret Garden Inn in the Edelweiss room, overall a pleasant but uneven experience; this place is close to very good but not quite there. Room was furnished with quality furniture and a nice bed, but this particular room was too small for desk and chair; get a larger room if you plan to work. Bathroom had...

I stayed at the secret garden and it worked. It was good but not great. It looks and feels a bit run down. It could use a little more cleaning - at least my room. I appreciated the breakfasts and it was conveniently located to walk to the University of Oregon. There was not staff around all the time and...

Nicely appointed rooms. Comfortable beds. Large comfortable common areas. Tasty breakfasts with generous portions. Pleasant staff. Great location near campus. All this adds up to a great experience at a reasonable price.

This would be a terrific place to stay for a big group. Lots of rooms and extensive common areas with comfortable places for reading and socialization. The staff we met were all extremely friendly and helpful. It's a bit "spendy" as they say in Oregon, but a beautiful place and has a wonderful inn cat named Liam. Looks like it's...

We stayed at the Secret Garden Inn for five nights wrapped around a football game at Autzen Stadium. Our team was beaten by the Ducks, but Oregonians went out of their way to welcome us to Oregon. The inn is located next to the campus and it is walkable to the stadium. The owner even drove some of our group...

I loved my stay at Secret Garden Inn in Eugene! From the night I arrived, until the afternoon I checked out, the staff was so kind and pleasant, and the Inn and grounds were well kept and comfortable. It is warm, homey, charming, open and airy, with the cutest lounge areas- replete with tea and magazines. This is the best...

Stayed here for four days in June. So pleasant in every way. The staff is so welcoming, the rooms delightful, the ambiance relaxing. Liam the cat, who lives just outside and has his own heated quarters, is an added plus. Close to everything. Delicious breakfasts. Can't wait to go back. Wendy A.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Secret Garden is an intimate, European-style Boutique Hotel one block from the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon. Within walking distance to Matthew Knight Arena, Track City – Hayward Field, Steve Prefontaine’s Memorial, Hendricks Park, Autzen Stadium, Willamette River and riverside bike paths, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Maude Kerns Art Center, Beall Concert Hall and several Restaurants including Agate Ally, Beppe & Gianni’s Trattoria, Studio One Cafe, Wild Duck and McMenamins. In the late 1990s when Becky Kaiser became steward of this stately home once owned by the Baker family of the distinguished newspaper, the Eugene Register Guard. She brought with her the aura of her grandfather, Henry Kaiser, known as the father of modern American ship building. As the small inn’s proprietor, Becky Kaiser developed its themed charm from the book The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.Since May 2008 when Don Flinn assumed ownership, Secret Garden’s charming staff continues the tradition of providing a sophisticated level of comfort and courtesy. The common rooms consist of a large lobby with intimate seating areas with fireplaces, two large dining rooms & gorgeous gardens ideal for weddings, meetings and social gatherings. Delicious on site catering provided and the attention to detail to create your perfect event. The staff enjoys sharing knowledge of the recreational pleasures of the Willamette Valley including the annual Oregon Bach Festival, Oregon Mozart Players, Prefontaine Classic, UofO Football & Basketball games, NCAA Track & Field, wine tastings at nearby King Estates and always golf, especially at Bandon Dunes on the Oregon coast. (Ask about Secret Garden’s limo service available for your excursions.) ... more   less
