Hotels Lay Down Welcome Mat

Published: December 20, 2016

Eugene, OR — Area hotels do an amazing job welcoming visitors to the region every day, but over this past week they've welcomed residents affected by the ice storm that blew threw the area leaving downed trees, damaged cars and homes, and a lot folks without power.

While the number of affected residents continues to drop, Travel Lane County is making it easier to find hotels offering discounts. Residents can go to and find a link to participating hotels on the front page. This list continues to be updated and residents may speak directly with hotels that are not currently on the list about what offers they may have in place for displaced residents.
