BEWARE!!! STOLEN ITEMS FROM ROOM!!! My Husband and I stayed at the Valley River Inn in Eugene, Oregon for a weekend (August 21st-23rd 2015). While we were out for the evening to attend a wedding, several items went missing from our hotel room from an out of sight, zipped bag. Items included gift cards, notes, receipts and papers as well... More

This hotel was a surprise. I arrived for business and felt like I had a nice vacation. It was built a while ago but has been updated throughout. The double queen room was huge and very clean. It is located by the river trail and the natural beauty of the setting offered that special relaxation business travelers want. Staff were... More

It's very comfortable & u can park and fly out of the Eugene Airport. The hotel is located next to a Hugh mall and other funky eateries. Ohohoh. It's also located on a river. U can get a room with river frontage for a little more $$. I always stay here when I fly out.

I work in Eugene a couple days each week, and frequently stay at Valley River Inn, since they have very affordable rates on some bid-for-travel sites. It is a great place if you aren't planning to do much after getting back to your room. It is adjacent to a large mall, and there are a number of chain restaurants nearby... More

I stayed on the third floor…large room, bkft, and happy hour included! Very friendly and helpful staff! The bathroom was modern and the balcony overlooking the river was a plus!!! The pool area was clean and you can get food from Sweetwaters. The fish tacos were very good! I would stay here again when visiting Eugene.

Recently stayed for two days at the Valley River Inn for a wedding. Had a great experience all around. The public areas are bright, airy and have cozy seating areas. My river view room was very comfortable with a great view from my private balcony. The staff was super helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Situated close to a mall (shopping and... More

We enjoyed our stay here while in Eugene. As the title says, this is a big property with lots of suites. There is a pool and a nice bar/restaurant area which abuts the river. The property is surrounded by a convenient shopping mall. While the buildings are a bit dated, they are in good repair and there is no quibble... More

The breakfast buffet has the very best bacon. It was delicious. The bourbon list for after dinner drinks is extensive and incredible. They have a cozy little den with a fireplace to sip said bourbon in and the staff are very friendly. You can rent bikes for a couple hours to go into down and explore the breweries and bakeries....

We really enjoyed our time at this hotel thanks to the concierge employees. Shawna & Jordan were excellent helping & serving us with the breakfasts & the early evening drinks and appetizers. Jordan & Sasha were also great at driving us around town and recommending places. Jennifer was very nice to us in the dining room as well.
