We were in Eugene for an intensive three day workshop and it was great to come back to the VRI in the evening to relax. We were on the river side with balcony, which is a perfect place to have a beer or coffee and just watch the world go by. Bed was comfy, room was quiet, and the staff... More

This is a very nice, large complex, perfect for business meetings or couples. The rooms are nice-not fancy, but spacious and quiet. Excellent restaurant and bar on site, plus a variety of attractions at the nearby Valley River mall. The service was excellent. One note- it would be nice to have a small fridge and microwave in the room.

It was a nice place but certainly dated. Very 60's feeling. Front desk was helpful and nice. Room was big but beds don't have blankets.... Just a sheet and a very thin fleece blanket thing. Had to have room service bring us one. The lounge was great. We sat by the fireplace and played cards while enjoying a drink. I'd... More

The Best thing about this Property is the River View. It was a little pricey for the room, and it certainly needs a little work. We stayed on a last minute trip through the area on a Sunday Night (Late). Not much stands out, except that it was Late and it was Open. I will definitely be looking at other... More

I had a last minute idea to stay in Eugene on a very important day. I called VRI and Olivia was very helpful over the phone. When I arrived I was treated very well. Not made to feel awkward due to my lack of planning. Love the Executive suite upgrade !!! Beautiful View , Clean Rooms Great service .....we will... More

The Valley River Inn has been a Eugene landmark since back in the sixties, I think. We have stayed in several area hotels, usually in the Gateway area (Marriott Courtyard, Holiday Inn, etc.). The Valley River Inn was not up to their standards. The room was larger than one would expect, but typical of a sixties-era room, the electrical outlets... More

2nd time staying here in early January. Easy and friendly check-in, great fire in the lobby and clean and large rooms. Love the location. Nice and quiet. Free wi-fi, no password needed. Annoying to have to put in 200 characters when my original 185 seemed quite sufficient...

The hotel is older, but clean and the staff is amazing. Very friendly, professional, exceeded my expectations. I did not expect this to be nicer than most of the better rated chains, but it was. The hotel location is nice, the restaurant was very good, but what made the trip was the staff.
