I won a stay at Riverdale Inn through my company and am so glad I did because I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there! The room was very nice and spacious (St. John's). The A/C was turned on high for us when we arrived which was great after arriving from hopping around a hot Jacksonville all day! Bob (one of the... More

My family of four, which included two boys, needed a place to stay for one night so we could visit friends who leave two blocks away. It is really the only option anywhere around, so we were committed to staying here no matter what. We were delighted by the look and feel of the place, we were greeted upon arrival,... More

This might sound picky, but it keeps coming to mind. When I phoned Sat afternoon, and when I picked up my key early that evening, I told the host that I was there because my mom was in hospice nearby. It is the only lodging for miles around. But I did not move into the room till Sunday afternoon, which... More

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
