Hi there! I've posted a longer version of this over on the Oregon Board . My husband and I plan to stay 2 nights in Eugene at the end of the month. This is an exploritory visit as we are thinking of relocating. Does anyone have a suggestion of where to stay ( that is not over $150 a night) I would like to stay somewhere that would give us a real flavor of living in Eugene. Also where should we eat and what should we not miss in Eugene, We will be there on a Saturday so we will go to the Saturday Market and I think there is a Mushroom Festival when we will be there. Anyone every been to that?
Ok, here is a confession, i've been through Eugene before and thought its a cool place with lots to do, but not really a pretty town (please don't throw stuff at me .) I'm afraid my husband is going to find it too crowded. So I'm asking for your help. Please direct us to pretty and possibly quaint (don't laugh) areas, if they exist. Thanks in advance

Default Places to stay

Campbell House Inn is the best known B&B, and their site says they have rooms under $150 (though probably not many). Others are The Secret Garden and the Excelsior Inn, both near campus and with websites.

Eat dinner at Cafe Soriah at 13th and Lawrence, eat breakfast at the Glenwood at 13th and Alder.

A quick lunch snack is a Yumm Bowl at Cafe Yumm, 18th and Willamette, and then drive around College Hill, 18th south to about 25th, and Willamette West to about Washington.

Another nice drive is Fairmount Blvd. to Hendricks Park. Take Franklin East to R. on Villard, L. on about 15th until you run into Fairmount Blvd., Birch up past Spring (track fans will stop at Pre's Rock, where Steve Prefontaine died in 1975) to the Park.

If you stay at the Secret Garden (even if you don't) drive or walk that neighborhood: Between 18th and 24th, Alder and Agate. These are all older architectural neighborhoods, built from the 20s to the 40s.
they are also spendy, but fun to look at!

Have fun!
