Reviewed yesterday NEW

In town for a business conference. The food was excellent. The staff very accommodating. The room was very clean upon arrival. We requested extra blankets and housekeeping brought them within 5 minutes and they clean.

My husband and I really love this place! Every staff member we've ever dealt with has been more than friendly & accommodating, the property is lovely, the bar & restaurant are excellent, and the rooms are large & comfortable.

I must say I am extremely disappointed with this place. VRI needs an update - very badly. That being said, not my biggest concern. When I walked into the room, there were no blankets on the bed. I went down to the front to ask for some extra blankets. 50 minutes later a security guard came and delivered the blankets....

We were in town to attend a memorial service and stayed at the Valley River inn. We were met with absolute great service and friendliness. Once the staff knew of the reason for our visit they went to extreme measures to insure our stay was flawless. The even provided a sympathy card expressing their condolences

Just spent an evening in one of the banquet rooms for our company meeting. The service was top notch and the food delicious. The staff was professional, attentive and had sense of humor to boot. Highly recommend for a company gathering or meeting.

I just returned from three nights in Eugene for a conference held at VRI. I checked here for hotel reviews before I went and was a bit nervous as the hotel sounded very run down. I didn't have a choice of where to stay so I went anyway. I was pleasantly surprised! The hotel is nice. Older but very clean,...

I stayed here in late January for one night in a king bed room. The rooms are spacious, and the one I was in appeared to be recently renovated (the sink area was very nice looking). Even so, it didn't feel new (maybe it was just the drab January weather). The bathroom was clean, but there was a slight smell...

Thanks so much for the nice review. Our complimentary parking does add a great benefit and our location on the Williammetter River is the best view in Eugene. Please do visit us again soon! Spring is around the corner, and it is amazing here at that time of the year.

Valley River Inn continues to delight us every stay, we always stay at VRI whenever in Eugene, love the location! The Sweet Water Restaurant is fabulous! Short drive to anywhere in Eugene and the walk along the river is to die for! Always stay at the VRI.

From the lay out, it is clear that this hotel started as a small building on a bend in the Willamette River, just off Delta Highway. Due to its beautiful setting and value the Inn grew and grew and added extensions in a very haphazard manner. Unfortunately it has become surrounded by a soulless suburban shopping mall, good only if...

The staff was so friendly and helpful. The path along the river is perfect for exercise. The room was large and had everything I needed as I stayed for a Business trip. The value for,the square footage was exceptional! Loved having a desk, sofa, and coffee table.
