Made a late same day reservation , all that was available was the balcony room facing the river. We got in late, they have actual keys for the rooms. Entering the room- it is tight- sink is by the door outside of restroom with a child size toilet that my husband hated. The room/decor was average, clean, older style/look. The... More

Its right next to everything you need for a nice weekend getaway. Rooms have always been nice and clean, and the staff has always been helpful. You are literally in Old Town Florence, right on the water and only a few feet from all the shopping, food and drink you need.

Nice room, with the usual microwave coffee.etc., but the patio doors to the balcony made the visit here special. The Siuslaw River (not Deschutes) is right beneath the balcony. The River flows toward the west into the Pacific and the tides affect the River flow. A great view of the iconic Siuslaw bridge, and the Oregon Sand Dunes can be... More

If you are looking to stay on Bay st and have easy walking access to shopping and restaurants this is the place! Comfortable and clean it was a nice relaxing place to be after being out all day. Friendly staff and accommdating, let us check in an hour early. Reasonably-priced we will stay again!

First I'd like to say is we don't have really high expectations when it comes to hotels. But we booked this hotel based on the 4 star ratings it had for a romantic Valentine's night out. Yeah 4 star my booty.. Its more of an older person style hotel. Rooms were alright. Until I went to grab the wash cloth... More

To say we were shocked by this review is an understatement. Our housekeepers are highly trained and nobody working here can figure out how a body hair got on a fresh washcloth over a sink area separate from the bathroom. We just plain can’t figure it out. That doesn’t mean it didn’t happen and we feel terrible that you had... More

Thank you for your great review and for choosing River House Inn as a place to stay. We have a lot of people telling us that it is romantic (especially the river rooms looking out over the river) and enjoy the short walk to Old Town. Every body seems to like the shopping and our great restaurants. Again we want... More
