We were looking to explore the area and realize it is off season for about everything. We still had lovely sunny weather in the high 40's and took a tour of a lava tube with a local guide. The hotel has an older look but significant updating is noted in the room furnishings (queen beds with footboards, high quality bedding albeit on the firm side, granite-look counter in bath).
Getting a river view room is worth it. The Deschutes river rushes by reminding you that you are someplace special.
Hotel also offers sauna, wt/fitness room (small but quite good), short trails along the river, hot breakfast usually included, indoor (seasonal) and outdoor pools and spas. Refrigerator with a separate, functional freezer plus a microwave make it easier for families. (We did not get a kitchenette room).
Our only issue with the facility was that the pool was too cold to fully enjoy and the "hot" tub was not hot. The chemicals in the pool bleached my daughter's suit also. Seems there is room for improvement in the pool management area in general as towels were in short supply and the auto lighting did not turn on smoothly with sunset.
The location is not really near the shops and restaurants we were interested in.
