The Valley River Inn has been a Eugene landmark since back in the sixties, I think. We have stayed in several area hotels, usually in the Gateway area (Marriott Courtyard, Holiday Inn, etc.). The Valley River Inn was not up to their standards.
The room was larger than one would expect, but typical of a sixties-era room, the electrical outlets were few and far between and I was hard-pressed to find an outlet for my CPAP machine. Local calls were 75 cents, which is a bit much in the modern era. Noise-proofing was minimal, and we were kept awake by the brontosaurus in the room above us (perhaps it was just someone who enjoyed stomping around, but it was annoying).
The restaurant. Sweetwaters, is quite nice, and we have chosen to eat there several times, even when we're staying at a different hotel. The breakfast buffet, $10 for guests, is perhaps not worth the price, but I've certainly had worse.
Overall, we'll probably go back to the Courtyard on our next Eugene trip.
