The hotel

More village than hotel, Sunriver Resort’s part of a private 3,300 acre community along the Deschutes River, in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Designed to immerse you in al fresco experiences, it’s filled with all manner of outdoorsy attractions. There are the simple pleasures, like 40 miles of biking and hiking trails, and stargazing at the observatory. And then there are the uber-indulgent ones, like stables, a marina, a spa, 9 dining experiences ranging from gourmet to beer garden, an airstrip, and 63 holes of golf spread across 4 courses, one of which will host the 2017 PGA Professional Championship. A destination in itself, The Cove is Sunriver’s swimming zone, with dining, a zero-entry pool, fire pits, even nature trails. Thank goodness they lay on free transport around the resort.

Did not appreciate additional charge at check in for using the groupon. It would be nice if there was some bold print at time of confirmation to notify guests of these additional charges so one is not surprised of this at check in and start vacation on a bad note.

You would be better off staying somewhere else, or renting a small house in sunriver. Very rundown and old, small, and not a very good value for your money. They really need to spend some money and update if they want to compete with other resorts in the area. Look at Pronghorn for 20.00 more!

We really enjoyed our stay here visiting the area for the 1st time! The staff was friendly and helpful as we were new to the area for a visit. Looking forward to visiting again with our family and checking out the area in the summer also!

Enjoyable stay in Sunriver, cozy room. Met all expectations. Reservations easy over the phone with helpful and knowledgeable staff. One request made during reservation process not submitted properly but front desk staff on check in was able to rectify quickly. Extremely clean which is a must for my husband! Will stay again.

Really enjoyed our visit here attending the Special Districts of Oregon Annual Conference. The Suite was excellent but needed a few items addressed. Toilets are old style small units and we needed dead lightbulbs replaced. Shower nozzle would be great for a seven foot tall person.

Really enjoyed our visit here attending the Special Districts of Oregon Annual Conference. The Suite was excellent but needed a few items addressed. Toilets are old style small units and we needed dead lightbulbs replaced. Shower nozzle would be great for a seven foot tall person. I tripped on the smallish stairs and fell into the fireplace lava rock cutting myself up a bit. Despite those small faults this is a great place to stay and visit. Close to the local airport do flying in would be easy. Next time we visit we will fly in our own airplane, weather permitting! Read less
