4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

This motel has recently been refurbished. Decor is really nice, both inside the room and reception area. Except that, I must have missed reading the fine clause, or they don't clarify this clearly on their website .... - THEY HAVE NO AIR-CONDITION IN THE BEDROOM!!! So, if you come here in the summer, be prepared to sweat through the night... More

Thank you for staying at River House Inn. I do apologize for not having AC in the rooms, but our 70 minus degree whether that we have here in Florence usually does not warrant having AC's in our rooms. There is a couple day's out of the year that gets up toward 80 degrees or above the but the evenings... More
