The Valley River Inn is a great oasis for a traveler. The staff was welcoming and helpful from the beginning, and the room was spacious and comfortable, with excellent contemporary décor. We needed a refrigerator and the staff had one to us in a flash. The walk along the river is pretty, and the shopping mall next door has a... More

The location was everything I'd hoped for and the staff was very nice, but for the price there could've been more amenities in the room. No microwave or refrigerator in the room. There were only 2 dim bulbed lamps, so reading a book newspaper was out of the question. The only armchair was squeezed in between one of the beds... More

A great location convenient to the mall and walking distance to a wide selection of restaurants. Our clean spacious room overlooked the river and we enjoyed a pleasant evening on the balcony. The front desk staff was super friendly and check in and check out was quick. We had no issues and would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay... More

I just used valley river in to host our wedding rehearsal as well as the main hotel for all of my out of town wedding guests. We had reserved 30 rooms total over a 3 day period. All of my guest spoke very highly of the staff and their attention to dealing with their needs. The pool was a hit... More

This inn is on a running/bike path along the Willamette River. An airline snafu resulted in an airline-paid night. The front desk assigned a spacious 2d floor room near the elevator although arrival was after 6pm. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed good food and ambience at the SweetWaters on the River restaurant patio. The hotel kept my luggage... More

Stayed there for a company conference. It's in a good location and my room overlooked the river. The hotel is a little 'dated' in some aspects, don't get me wrong, it wasn't worn or dirty, but showed its age. As far as location that depends on what you are looking for. Its adjacent to a mall and several chain restaurants.... More

Had to find a place to stay last minute while I waited for my early morning flight. Location is excellent in the mall parking lot with restaurants and shopping a short walk away. The rooms are spacious with large beds and bathroom. There is a large pool, a comfortable gathering area, and a restaurant and snack shop. Checking in and... More

The Hotel is right by the river where you can find a nice path for walks. It is also next to the Mall and several restaurants which makes it easy to find whatever you need. Ok rooms, nice Staff! Good for families.

Based on some recent reviews, I was a bit skeptical of this hotel. But, I had no issues and was impressed with the large size of the room. I was on the 3rd floor with a river view (albeit a bit obstructed by trees). I did find it interesting how low the shower head and how low the sink were...I'm... More

This was my first time staying at the Valley River Inn in Eugene and I will certainly return the next time I'm in town. The staff was pleasant, profession, and very welcoming. Both Rachelle and Paige made me feel welcomed and genuinely interested in making sure my stay was perfect. The rooms were tidy and clean. I had breakfast at... More
