Lodging at the ABM (Important – book now!)

OBOA has negotiated a discounted room block at our beautiful host venue, Riverhouse on the Deschutes in Bend, Oregon over our conference dates. This is peak season for the area and the hotel, so rooms are at a premium and very limited. 

RESERVATION DEADLINE: Sunday, June 16 – though we strongly encourage you to reserve your room right away (do not delay)


Rooms are first–come, first–served and the hotel is expecting to sell out throughout our stay. Rooms will go quickly and after June 16 or whenever the block is full, whichever comes first –– reservations will only be accepted on a space and rate available basis. You will likely not get a room if you wait until the last minute.

To reserve a room, please call Riverhouse directly at 541.389.3111 and identify as part of the OBOA / Oregon Building Officials Association conferenceNote: a custom booking link will be provided here in the next 30 days though you can reserve now by calling.

It is very important you book your lodging right away (do not delay) and through Riverhouse directly –– not a third–party website or provider. OBOA contracts with the resort on your behalf and has obligations to meet. Any upgrades or special requests must be made at the time of reservation. Room rates are $259 per night, per room (single/double occupancy), plus taxes and fees. Discounted rates may be available two days prior to the conference; please call for availability. Rates quoted are subject to taxes and fees and a daily resort fee. Please speak with the reservation agent at the time of booking regarding all hotel fees, cancellation or other hotel policies. OBOA does not accept any responsibility for resort policies and fees.
