Had to go to Jacksonville for business and decided to treat myself to a B&B rather than an impersonal hotel. Riverdale Inn was wonderful. Bob and Linda made me feel so at home. I had a lovely room with lots of windows. Located in one of the loveliest old neighborhoods in Jacksonville (also my hometown, so I know), Riverside/Avondale, which... More

My boyfriend and I visited the Riverdale Inn for my birthday and we were very happy with our stay. The Inn has an old southern charm but is updated and modern, as well. The check in process was easy, and the person at the front desk was very welcoming and friendly. The food in the morning is delicious and made... More

This was our first trip to Jacksonville in ages. We went to see our daughter who had recently taken a job in J-ville, and wanted to show us her new digs. We had looked at staying on the beach nearby but because of the quick nature of our visit, we decided to stay somewhere closer. We chose well. The inn... More

I stayed here with my partner for a night in Jacksonville, and that was a great decision. This place has got it all. Lovely and historic architecture. A home-y feel. And the owners are so personable! Our room was neat and spacious, plus the fan had already been running for sometime so the room was already cool--crucial to combat the... More

My partner surprised me the night before my birthday and got us a room at this quaint B&B in Jacksonville. While her going through all the work and surprising me was enough in itself to make me speechless, once I saw the place and our room in the little Carriage house in the back, I was floored. The bed was... More

The inn keepers are very warm and friendly. This was our second time at the inn and the experience was just as good as our first. They make you feel like you are home. Our room was very clean and kept up well. They have a wonderful morning breakfast. The location is excellent well within walking distance to night spots,... More

I have stayed here twice and love the location as well as the comfy beds and the architectural details of this historic home. The innkeepers are very nice folks. There is a full bar in the house which I think is a nice little feature and lots of places to sit if you so desire. One block from the river,... More

Riverdale Inn is well appointed with comfortable rooms and of course made to order breakfast. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. But then isn't this expected of all good+ B and B's? What makes Riverdale Inn standout is a very large riverfront park one block away and Jacksonville's oldest settlement/ village Riverfront AKA 5 Points just down Riverfront Drive... More

My wife and I live in Jacksonville, but were looking for a romantic getaway. This place fit the bill. The staff was super friendly and this is a family owned and operated business. We were able to enjoy a fantastic night in Riverside!

The Riverdale Inn is a hidden Jacksonville treasure. Each room looks inviting for a week or a weekend stay. The staff are service-oriented and friendly. The homemade breakfast served in the stylish dining room was exceptional. Our family will return to the Riverdale Inn; can't wait for the next visit.
