The short version: this is a nice place to stay in a pretty town. The decor has been tastefully refreshed. Longer version: The plan was to stay the night in Eugene, but the college was having a Halloween pie-party football match, or something. Every hotel and BnB room was taken. Plan B was to continue to Florence, another hour’s drive... More

What a nice little surprise to arrive at this quaint place right on the river. It is super clean, conveniently located, really nice staff, and cute little touches in the room like mints, makeup remover wipes and a rubber duckey! The best part was waking up to an aquatic show of hundreds of salmon jumping out of the river and... More

This inn is right on a beautiful river. Our king room was lovely, comfortable, quiet. There's a deck with chairs, we could sit and watch the sea lion, hills, and food in boats. Breakfast room is two level, plenty to choose from & not tacky. Proximity to gorgeous shopping area is a plus.

Pay the little extra for a river front room. It's worth it with views of the dune and bridge, plus wildlife spottings like heron, seal, and king salmon literally jumping out of the river! The hotel has just been remodeled and the rooms are perfect with nice little details and super fast wifi. The people that own this Inn obviously... More

The rooms here were good, and the service was excellent. The major attraction for us was its convenience. Located almost under the Siuslaw bridge, the motel was within easy walking distance of town. Plenty of parking and I understand that the units with a river view are good. No restaurant, but it did provide a complementary breakfast,

Have stayed here several times. Main attraction is the river view as the motel is on the river. Located in Old town Florence so walking is easy and the town is worth your time. Hotel is old but nicely maintained and rooms were recently nicely redecorated.

This hotel is an easy stroll to the shops and restaurants along the riverside. It is also located right under the main bridge but that was not a major concern for our night. We were not bothered and this was a mid-week stay. We did not choose the $40 upgrade for a river view, and the overall pricing was great.... More

this is not a nice Inn overlooking a river but a run down Motel with a nice car park ! unfriendly staff at desk only interested that you sign a declaration concerning No pets and No smoking . The website is totally misleading. to be avoided !

I must say that I am a little bit confused by this review of the River House Inn. We do have 22 very nicely appointed River Front rooms. We also have 18 rooms that do indeed overlook the parking lot. Starting early 2013 we completely renovated this property with all new carpet, paint, beds, televisions, fixtures, lighting, draperies, pillow, bedding... More

We stayed one night here and had I known there was no air conditioning, and not been totally exhausted, we most likely would have gone elsewhere. It was close to 90 degrees in Florence that day and when we checked into our room in the late afternoon, it was so unbearably hot, we had to leave and drive around to... More

I am sorry to read about your less than satisfactory stay with us at the River House Inn. It was unfortunate that you were here during an unseasonable hot spell. Rarely do we have temperatures high enough on the Oregon Coast to require AC. Most motels along the Oregon Coast do not have AC as we rarely need it. We... More

After a poor nights sleep in Cannon Beach I was keeping my fingers crossed for the River House. We just put down our bags and I'm so happy with the room I wanted to express it immediately. The bed is very nice and the room nicely appointed. There is nice attention to detail through out the room. I would like... More
