I've been a frequent guest of the Riverdale Inn over the last 4 years. My wife and I prefer to stay at the Riverdale Inn when we are staying in town versus the beach. I recommend the Park Suite on the 2nd floor. Rooms are well appointed and super clean. Breakfast is great ans always well prepared. There is an... More

Our stay at the Riverdale Inn was amazing. I was getting married two blocks away, so the night before the wedding, my bridesmaids and I stayed in both rooms of the carriage house. It was a very spacious suite that was conducive to all of us getting ready at the same time. The breakfast the morning of the wedding was... More

We recently spent a couple of days at the Riverdale Inn. The staff was warm and welcoming. The breakfast each morning was wonderful (cook to order in just minutes)! The location was outstanding! Just a block away from the Inn is Memorial Park, which offered us a great view on the St. John's River, and right off Margaret Street were... More

We were in the area for a football game and wanted to stay someplace "different". After searching online, I came across this B&B. It was truly outstanding!! The rooms were great and the old mansion was beautiful! Breakfast was wonderful and the staff very courteous. There were also some other football fans staying there, so it was very exciting to...

The Riverdale is a comfortable and easy place. The restored house - mansion - is full of history, yet up to date. Our room was just right - king bed, huge shower, and jacuzzi for 2. The breakfast menu is broader than some BnB's and cooked to order. All that was good, but the staff made it even more special... More

I have stayed at the Riverdale several times now as I travel to Jacksonville on business. The owners are very nice and extremely accomodating. I believe I have stayed in all of the rooms at this point and I have not had any issues. I will certainly return to the Riverdale as they offer a great experience.

We stayed at the Riverdale Inn for two nights. We've been doing a road trip of the south of the US and we've been packing and unpacking quite a bit along the way. The Riverdale Inn was a very relaxing place to stay. We stayed in the Park Suite which was very pretty with lots of windows to let the... More

Everyone at Riverdale was so warm and friendly that we felt like family. The Inn was very clean and very comfortable. The cooked to order breakfast was delicious. We loved being able walk everywhere. Bob and Eric offered us great dining and exploring recommendations. We will definitely return to the Riverdale Inn.

Stayed for one night while attending a concert. We stayed in the Lancaster room, which was excellent. Very clean, well presented, and a real treat. They owners were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was excellent, and refreshing to have an open bar policy with an honesty box. Would recommend this little gem to anyone, although it is a little... More

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding night. We stayed in the Bishopgate room and found it to be clean and cozy. We got in just before the hosts closed for the evening, and found them to be very friendly and helpful. In the morning, we enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the dining room downstairs. I would love...
