We stayed in this beautiful Inn for one night. We were well cared for, the rooms were clean, modern and smelled pleasant. My one and only complain were the low flow showers that were very low. They have a nice breakfast area and they are so close to the down town area, we walked to our restaurant. We would recommend... More

This hotel offers a nice view of the river for some of the rooms. The rooms were clean but could use some updating and TLC. The plus is that the hotel is located in Old Town Florence which is very interesting. They offer a continental breakfast but we did not take advantage of it.

We only stayed here one night but were more than pleased with the experience. The front office staff was warm & welcoming, they directed us down the street to an excellent place for dinner.

We stayed one night here and enjoyed a riverfront room. The deck was very nice, with its view of the impressive sand dunes across the river and lots of cormorants. The bridge was a bit noisy, but we quickly got used to it and slept with the door open and a lovely breeze. We followed the restaurant recommendation of the... More

Not only was River House Inn clean and well maintained, but we had a sweeping view of the bridge and river from our deck. We liked that the inn was just a block from Old Town shopping and restaurants, and offered easy off and on highway access. A great find!

Loved this place...newly remodeled and nicely done. The river was 10 feet from our balcony and the view of the bridge was spectacular. It was beautifully decorated with everything you need (though some may say the room was small). Very clean. Just a walk down the block to Historic Florence with great shops and wonderful food. The staff was very... More

My wife & I spent 3 nights here. From the outside this hotel looks very nice & it's in a great location. However, rooms are very noisy & small. Soundproofing is at a minimum. The people above us sounded like they were moving furniture all night. Sliding glass door did not lock properly. A pin was used as a temporary... More

Sorry that your stay wasn't more pleasant, the sliding glass doors actually have to different lock systems for the benefit of security. If you want to leave the door cracked open, you can with our secondary lock. There is another spot for the lock to be placed so that you can have the door open 5 to 6 inches which... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and were thrilled by our riverside room, which looked out directly onto the river and the dunes on the opposite bank. The room was spacious and well-equipped and the bed was extremely comfortable. The laundry room was also very useful in the middle of our trip! We visited in July and had... More

I wish I had had more time to enjoy this charming motel, but I spent most of my time in the hospital awaiting the birth of my Granddaughter.

The River House is ideally located right on the river and half a block from the main shopping/dining district of Florence. We stayed in a riverfront (a must) room the first week of July and had no issue with the heat. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room clean and spacious. Breakfast was fine. Stayed one night...would like to go back.
