“Convenient & Clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We stayed here during a sold out weekend. Our room was just as it showed in the brochure and on the web. It was clean and close to town. Check-in was easy and the hosts were accommodating. The rooms were quiet considering there was no vacancy, and we've already booked our reservation for next year's event. There is a fridge, micro and hair dryer provided. Shampoo, soaps, hangers, coffee & tea all in room. TV had basic channels and the bed was comfy. Extra pillows in room for a total of 5! Balcony with view of river and scenic bridge. Close to shopping and food. Basic continental breakfast with waffles, cereal, yogurt, juice and coffee.

Room Tip: River front rooms are a bit more private. Rooms without river view have view of parking lot.

The outside of this motel may look a little drab, but the interior of the room is very nice. Clean linens, comfy beds, good sized room, fridge, cable tv, wifi etc. The rubber ducky in the bathtub was a cute touch.

Close location to down town Florence. Walking distance to shops. We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds. Good standard room. Great extra appliances and up to date decor. Also complimentary breakfast. There is no smoking or pets allowed and that was great for me cause the place was definitely clean!

We have visited and stayed in Florence, Oregon for many years, however this is our first stay at the River House Inn. It is the perfect location to stay for stepping out of your room for walks and to enjoy Old Town. When arriving, we had a King room on the second floor, with a balcony overlooking the beautiful Siuslaw River. The room was nice but somewhat small. Of our request the front desk accommodated us with a larger room the following day. A suite, still on the second floor, King, balcony with River view, long vanity with double sinks and hot tub, very comfortable. Both rooms, immaculately clean.

Kim in Housekeeping, took such good care of us during our stay, always there for whatever we may have needed. We enjoyed our morning visits with her each day. She certainly enjoys her Guests and takes great pride in her job. River House Inn have available, two of these suites.

Unique shops and great restaurants in Old Town. Connie's Women's Apparel, a favorite of mine, Coffee's at Siuslaw River Coffee Roasters, Balcony Gourmet & Kitchen Klutter, Mo's for fabulous seafood, the RestoBar for lunch & dinner.

Thank you River House Inn, we look forward to our return visit.

This is a great place to stay while in Florence. Even though it's a little pricey for the area, it is so close to OLD TOWN that you can leave your car in the parking lot and walk anywhere. Great food and shopping in OLD TOWN!! Check out DIvine Decadence on Bay Street...she has the most interesting items you can imagine, for very reasonable prices!!
The hotel room is good but there is no patio and no where to sit outside to enjoy your morning coffee. I felt stuck sitting inside my dark room drinking my morning coffee. The river view rooms have a deck to enjoy, but the regular rooms don't :((
The staff were good, the reception OK...not overly friendly. All in all, we had a great time.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the river view if you can afford the extra money

We stayed in this motel for one night during a road trip through Oregon. The location on the river is very nice and the proximity to town is great. The rooms are small but nicely updated and clean with a comfortable bed. The sink is seperate from the shower making it easier for getting ready in the morning. The lighting is dark. There are no elevators to the second level. There is also no air conditioning. The room is very stuffy without the window open and the ceiling fan on. Luckily, evenings are cool. Our room faced the parking lot so if you are a light sleeper, an open window may be an issue. Breakfast room is tiny with average continental offering.

Maybe we got a bad room, although we were on the river so One would think these are the best rooms, if the room was any narrower I would have bruised my elbows turning around. The bathroom was small with a most unique shower head built for those under 5 feet 5". The shower head spray was a thin powerful laser bullet so one had to do the samba to rinse the body. Have not seen a tube t.v. since 1999. You could not watch TV at night and leave the armoire doors open because there wasn't enough room to walk between the bed and TV armoire. The lighting in the room was just above seeing eye dog strength and one of the bulbs by the bed was burned out.hey, so what if the floor creeks. The river view was nice but being practically under the bridge, you had to close the door at night. Otherwise you had the sound effect of an 18 wheeler in your dreams all night. The breakfast was your normal holiday inn express. The very best thing about the hotel is that is a short block walk to one of best restaurants We have ever been to, sorry for preposition to my sixth grade English teacher. All in all, avoid.

Room Tip: Go to best western
