Weasku Inn

Oregon, USA

The hotel

Heaped in history, Weaksu Inn owes everything to its location. On the banks of the Rogue River, this former fishing lodge attracted Hollywood icons like Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, and Walt Disney, keen to swap the glitz for the great outdoors. A 10 acre riverside retreat, it remains a gateway to some of the Pacific Northwest’s most scenic sights and adventurous diversions, from hiking Crater Lake National Park to jetboating the Rogue River. It’s also kept its intimate lodge-style welcome, with your hosts laying on complimentary hors d’oeuvres in the afternoon, and freshly baked cookies and milk in the evening. And you can still stay in the five original (albeit updated) lodge rooms, although they, and the newer riverfront cabins, now feature all today’s essentials, from cable TV to complimentary WiFi.

The Weasku Inn, a lodge of historic import beside the Rogue River, confounds expectations -- in both good and bad ways. The entire property, which is five miles outside Grants Pass, has been renewed and updated. The public rooms in the main lodge building reflect its long history with an ancient rock fireplace, a huge couch, a fascinating selection of memorabilia and photographic displays worthy of extended browsing. A collection of duplex cabins and an A-frame are down the lawn and closer to the still-distant river. They are cozy and comfy, with tasteful decor and ample room for lounging and sleeping. We were upgraded (thank you!) to the A-frame with soaring picture windows, pine beams in the ceiling, river rock gas fireplace but a sad, tired couch with a pull-out bed. The furniture arrangement had a significant quirk with the mini refrigerator out in the room while the writing table with chair was cramped under the eaves, making it very difficult to use; they should have been switched. The king bed was extraordinarily comfortable with nice bedding and a down comforter. The bathroom with tub/showever was fine too and quite spacious. But much of the draw of the Weasku is being beside the "wild and scenic" Rogue -- yet it turns out to be some distance away and mostly obscured by alder trees and underbrush. Even more disappointing, what can be heard from the "view" deck is not the rush of the river but the onrush of heavy traffic on Interstate 5 just beyond the river. Another mixed reaction is prompted by the Weasku's touted afternoon "appetizers," a nice gesture for guests but mediocre at best in execution. This turned out to be a cold display of crackers, cheese and veggies, plus one hot soup that tasted suspiciously like canned. (When asked for a reaction to the inn at check-out, I said that the afternoon appetizers needed to be improved. To which the reception person remarked, "That would cost more money.") Are the afternoon appetizers more of a plus or a minus? Good question but not sure I know the answer. Weasku Inn perplexes more often than it dazzles. Read less

The grounds at Weasku are stunning with the tall pines and well-manicured lawns and pathways. The staff is very friendly. One person stands out from this, our second stay: Gabi was our hostess for the afternoon Hors d'Oeuvres and she is truly a "people person." She was always very interested in what we saw and did for the day, and she made very insightful suggestions about what to see for the following day. We looked forward to seeing her smiling face as we came in each afternoon to partake in the wonderful soups and snacks. Read less

Room was wonderful as rustic, but not overdone. Large river rock gas fireplace; instant hot water. Pleasant & welcoming staff. Breakfast was so-so like BW+. Ambience was great along with strolling the path along the Rogur River.

Staff extremely friendly and helpful and great personalized hospitality. Special shout out to Gabi and Tess who were fun, engaging and informative during wine and appetizer happy hour and cookies and milk snack hour. Only suggestion for improvement is better river access / seating at river if possible Read less
