Cozy and comfortable is this converted Mansion that is now a fabulous Inn with ten unique guest rooms. Proprietors are friendly and knowledgeable on the area. Great place to take an early morning walk in the park next door to the property. Night life is in walking distance with great choices for dining.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riverdale Inn. Linda is very personable; easy smile, warm personality, you kinda wished she would be your next door neighbor, a friend. The breakfast was delicious; very crisp bacon, delicious omelet! The location of the Inn is great!....close to the River and within walking distance of neighborhood restaurants and shops. Very impressed with... More

This was our second visit to the Riverdale Inn. The Inn is spotless, the staff most helpful and the location is great (about a 100 yards from the huge and beautiful St. Johns River). It is located in cosmopolitan neighborhood with shops and great restaurants and it is quite and peaceful. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Riverdale.

We had a wonderful time getting to know the city of Jacksonville. Riverdale Inn is a beautiful B&B. Linda & her family are a treasure to that area. You can see pride of ownership in every detail through out the house. We will be back!

We stayed in room #6, and were very pleased with its comfort and amenities. The king size bed was very comfortable, and the air conditioning was very effective. There was a nice love seat in the room, along with a small desk for a computer, and a small table with two chairs. Be aware that it is a 3 story... More

Whenever I travel to Jacksonville on business, I choose the Riverdale Inn. It's a perfect location for good places to eat and near Memorial Park where I can take my evening walks. I've stayed in several of the rooms but my favorite is on the 3rd floor, away from it all in the corner room. My only recommendation to the... More

Higher cost for least pleasant room (#8)...very tiny, claustrophobic, hot room in attic advertised as a suite with a sitting room. Unfortunately, that room is an alcove out in the hallway where two other rooms are. Don't plan on using it in your p.j.'s! It's not really a sute to me if the rooms are not connected by private door.The... More

I'm from Jacksonville so I am relatively familiar with many of the places and things to do in the area. Riverdale Inn exceeded all expectations. The staff was incredibly friendly and our room was beautiful and comfortable. The sterility of hotel stays was nonexistent. The charm of historic Riverside surrounds the Inn and creates a glimpse into old Florida. Overall,... More

A beautiful turn of the century home a block from the St. Johns River. Very clean rooms and very friendly service. Great place to stay with many places to eat within walking distance. A great place to relax.
