I’d pulled the old car over to a space nearby enough to the room but not on the boardwalk. You can never tell. Tides come and go and docks sometime, can too. Out of the back seat I grabbed my case and we proceeded up to the second floor. There is no elevator but the case lifted well, without a... More

So refreshing and clean! The only thing that prevents the 5 star rating is the beds. The bed was the best quality that I have experienced in a hotel but not as comfortable as I would like. They have new mattresses with memory foam that would make this experience 5 stars. A snack vending machine would be nice. The staff... More

Newly renovated rooms made our stay very comfortable. The manager made us very welcome and the Inn was perfectly situated to make the most of the fabulous restaurants and shops. Breakfast was offered in a separate room with a waffle making machine, fresh local made pastries and doughnuts and. Lovely tea and coffee. Wished we had organised our trip to... More

We stayed for three nights and had a wonderful experience. We had a view of the beautiful Siuslaw River (worth it!). The room was very clean and comfortable, it looked recently updated. The hotel is perfectly located, with several restaurant and shops right out the door. Very nice staff.

Nice people, upgraded us for my husband's birthday- to a room on the river. Even left a birthday card! Great fun walking to The Beachcomer for the Ducks game. The king- size bed was heaven...slept straight through! This is our third time staying here. We are coming back next year, too!

So disappointed, hot 2 days no air conditioning no cross ventilation, windows open bridge keeps you awake all night. Room very small, no one at front desk when we checked in and had to look for someone to check out, will never stay there again.

When a guest has a bad stay, we feel even worse than they do and try hard to correct any problems. We are a bit confused, though, on what to do in this case. We checked what the weather was like on the two days the party stayed and the highs were 62 and 64 degrees, normal for this time... More

Beautiful clean place. Opt for a river view room with south wall all glass, enjoy the patio and chair, watch jumping fish, passing boats and a scenic vista of sand dunes, water and trees. Room is small in size but certainly adequate. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Walking distance to old downtown area, restaurants & shops. Best value in Florence.......

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.
