Such a charming little spot. I loved the rubber duckie in the bathtub. Very comfortable with just a touch of personal attention that you usually don't see at motels in this price range. They gave us a great reccomendation for dinner! Unfortunately, we had to keep going up the coast and couldn't stay longer, but I can hardly wait to... More

We were recommended by the Sea Pines Golf Course as a package deal was in place between the Motel and the golf course. We stopped by after a long day's drive and just took the room as they had a king size bed that my wife and I prefer. When we opened the door, how sweet it was! Nicely finished... More

Very clean hotel with excellent location to "old town" Florence. Easy walking to shops, great restaurants and the boat dock. Felt car in lot was very secure. Decent continental breakfast in adjacent building. Short ride to Sandpines Golf Course and also Dunes Recreational area. Would definitely stay here again.

We were on the Oregon Coast on our way home from Palm Desert. The River House Inn is easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Florence is an interesting place and we would have liked to explore it further if we had time. When we return we will definitely stay at the River House Inn.

Thank you for making my Lane County experience such a memorable adventure. I have never had the opportunity to just be a visitor in Florence. I have already told several people about what a nice stay I had and I highly recommend the River House Inn. The room was comfortable, clean, and I love having a fridge and micro in... More

We enjoyed our stay at the river house inn. It was a simple pleasant hotel nicely situated at the river's edge, with a nice view across to the dunes, and a nice view of the old bridge across the river. It was a short walk to the old town with some nice shops and restaurants. The breakfast had enough variety... More

Very clean and comfortable motel. All the rooms are great, but the room with the river view is excellent. Beautiful view of river and dunes; balcony offered privacy and an extension to the outdoors. It was great to have Old Town Shops and restaurants within walking distance.

I'm sorry to say, we were disappointed. We had a downstairs spa room and it just wasn't worth the cost. Pros ~ view of the river, bridge, etc. nice. Also within walking distance to old town, which was great. Cons ~ noisy, could hear every neighbor around us (from loud walking above us to going to the bathroom). No shampoo... More

We rarely have complaints but take them very seriously indeed. If a guest is unhappy, we are unhappy too. The reviewer's complaint about the mattress made us scratch our heads since we buy only top of the line mattresses and rarely get a complaint. We do understand that there will always be guests who prefer a softer or firmer mattress.... More

Right on the water's edge, with a big window and little balcony looking out at the Siuslaw River, and easy walking to all the Old Town shops and restaurants, or a grocery store. I bring my binoculars to look at birds, and my laptop to write, write, write when I need a retreat. The last two trips I didn't even... More
