Decks, At Valley River Inn, A Hotel Alongside The Valley River Center, Eugene, Oregon
In architecture, a deck is a flat surface capable of supporting weight, similar to a floor, but typically constructed outdoors, often elevated from the ground, and usually connected to a building. The term is a generalization of decks as found on ships. [from wikipedia]

The Valley River Inn provided a small deck for each room that faced the Willamette River. The decks were side by side with a gap between each deck. A pair of chairs and a table were set outside on each deck. In the winter, the deck could double as a refrigerator.

One deck viewed from above shows the size of the deck and the arrangement of furniture. Railings prevented the average person from falling off the deck.

Behind the Valley River Inn was a path that bordered the river as seen from a deck. Just off the path, an old, metal staircase led down to the river's edge. The stairway was fenced off, and was no longer open to the public. After a heavy rain the bottom step would flood. In the winter, nobody in their right mind would be interested in descending those stairs, even if they were allowed.
