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.

We have been to this hotel many times to visit our daughter in Eugene. Before I discovered the somewhat "secret" Concierge room and service, I would have rated it a 31/2 Star hotel. Nice experience and good beds, with a fire place in the lobby sitting area in winter,However, they talk about offering Starbucks coffee and only offer dark French... More

A very nice, somewhat older, place to be. Large rooms, great bed, and a good location. The only problem was the very long line when checking in and no extra staff to help the poor guy at the front desk.

We stay here when we visit our kids attending the University of Oregon. Beautiful views of the river, lovely rooms, great lobby and overall ambiance, and the staff has always been friendly and very helpful. Even if our kids move on to other cities, we would want to stay here.

Reception staff was very helpful with special needs. Restaurant served a very tasty Club sandwich and iced tea. Room Service brought a delicious hamburger and French fries later. Towels of all sort were a little thread bare, otherwise this is a very good place stay in Eugene.

Traveling with my 2 granddaughters, the one requirement for us was a nice pool. The Valley River Inn delivers this in spades. The large outdoor pool is available 10-10 and the water was comfortably warm (although the air temperature was not). My only complaint is that the pool towels are more like tea towel size, but that is not a... More
