My stay at the Valley River Inn was everything I expected it to be. Saleena and Sergio went out of their way to make this stay a positive experience. Mario, at the concierge desk, went the extra mile. Becky and Hans, at the front desk, were helpful and courteous. And Sasha was bar none the best driver we have rode... More

This was a lovely place to stay. The room was spacious and comfortable and the entire hotel was clean and inviting. We wanted to be sure to compliment Trinidad. She did an excellent job with our room and was always friendly and caring. It was a pleasure to get to know her. Our only complaint was that we did not... More

Exceptional service staff. A great value in a very convenient location. We were there for an annual roller derby tournament. Breakfast buffet was plentiful with a good variety of food and beverage selections. Room was large and very clean. Bed was nice and comfy.

We wanted a hotel in Eugene that was close to the airport and the Amtrak station so we have place to stay on both ends of our trips and offered stay and park packages. We tried the Valley River Inn and have since stayed there four times in the past year. The main reason we continue to stay here is... More

I stayed here in March for a conference. The staff were friendly and helpful, the bed was really comfortable, and the room was clean and quiet. The hotel was also within walking distance to a lot of restaurants.

We stayed at the Valley River Inn this past weekend for a Rotary International District Conference. I was most impressed with the staff's hospitality and friendliness. Everyone smiled and said "hello" or "good morning" including the maintenance and cleaning personnel. Patrick and Taylor in particular did an excellent job in the concierge lounge. Thank you VRI management/leadership for training your... More

Very Best Place to Stay in Eugene! I've received complimentary upgrade to the Concierge Level overlooking the Willamette River, the past two stays. Polite, knowledgable staff, updated, clean & spacious rooms top it off.

Pretty much the Go To property for groups, I decided to stay recently on a business trip. My room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. I was disappointed with the high prices in the restaurant, bar, and even vending machines. $3 for a soda, $9 for a martini, and $4 for in-room water?

The best feature of the hotel is it's staff that was always friendly and helpful during my stay here. The hotel is located on the bank of a river and next to a bike walk. Even if you are not lucky to have a room facing the river, it's easy to go outside and enjoy. The room was spacious and... More
