We stayed here as it was relatively close to the University, where my daughter went to orientation. The proper sits right on the Willamette River, the restaurant overlooks the river, and was quite good for breakfast. The rooms were dated as another person mentioned. I didn't mind that, but what I did mind was that there were no towels in... More

We chose this hotel because of the proximity to an event that our son had. Check in was easy, and we were given adjoining rooms which was nice (149/151) the rooms were ample sized. A few minor complaints are that we heard the people directly above us walking around their room until midnight. The floors were very creaky so perhaps... More

For not much extra, the Concierge level offers a staffed catering room with good free breakfasts, fresh fruit, and generous free drinks and hearty fresh snacks in the early evening. The rooms are plenty big, clean, and quiet. Staff are friendly and professional. Beds are comfy. If you opt out of daily room cleaning, you get a $5 coupon for... More

We love having breakfast on the deck at the Valley River Inn. Great menu, beautiful view, and great service. We had Kim as our waitress and she was superb. Attentive, friendly and efficient. A great way to start off a summer day in Eugene.

Right from check in, the hotel appeared very clean and upscale. The staff was very helpful and nice, and always willing to accommodate you. The reason for the four stars is for a couple small problems with the rooms. Overall very nice and spacious, the shower refused to drain, not a huge problem, and there was no refrigerator in the...

We picked this hotel strictly as a spot half way between Point A and Point B on our vacation. It turned out to be a very good choice. There were several good restaurants within walking distance which helped since we did enough driving to get there. The hotel itself was very clean, quiet and comfortable and that is what it... More

This hotel is right next to the river, and that alone gives it a leg up on other hotels. It is a rather large hotel and it was a longish walk to our room from the parking lot, but the rooms are large, clean, has many amenities, and the beds are comfortable. We found the staff to be friendly and... More

My friend and I were traveling to our 40th high school reunion, and decided to stay in Eugene for the night en route. We called, and got a great room at the VRI. The service was fabulous, the room lovely, and we can't recommend the concierge floor enough. You'll get great extras, and it's worth the price.
