Stayed overnight on the way to coos bay visiting family. Friendly staff and very welcoming. Rooms comfortable and well appointed ours over looking the river. Nice bar meal at reasonable price and great breakfast.

We have stayed at the Valley River Inn before and we will always choose it from now on because of their incredible attention to the needs of their guests. We flew in from San Francisco and arrived after 1 PM. Not only did they honor our reservation, the fromn desk provided a wheel chair for my wife as well. The... More

The best asset any hotel has is its staff. This is especially true of the front desk, a guests stay can be significantly impacted by who they are greeted by and how they are treated. I reserved two rooms for an overnight stay between stops in Oregon. Upon arrival, we were checked in by J. Carlos. Friendly and professional, you... More

The Inn is attached to a Mall complex set along the Willamette River. But you would never know it. Quiet setting and a beautiful few of the Willamette. And if you like to jog or bike there is a path also along the river and your back door. Very close to downtown Eugene and the Hult Concert Hall where I... More

I recently spent one night at the Valley River Inn to attend a conference. The conference facility was fine for the group -- providing very nice snacks at break and a nice lunch for day two. The hotel itself is set on the banks of the Willamette River and do book a river-view room. It's a lovely view. There's a... More

Located in one of the most beautiful cities in US, Eugene, Oregon, the Valley River Inn is as pretty as the city. Staying here three nights for a conference, I experienced good time and good services. The river and the restaurant also very nice and interesting.

The location of Valley River Inn is very nice, across the street from the Valley River Center mall (includes a large Cinemark theater and Macy's, H & M, Victoria's Secret, JC Penny's, etc.) The facility is nice, comfortable. Nothing too fancy, but solid. Good place for a smaller conference. (300 people etc.).

The hotel itself was very interesting with large saws and lumber mill memorabilia galore. I stayed in a King Suite with River View. The river was nice to look at but there was a noisy overpass next to the hotel. Overall the room and view was very pleasant. The food at the hotel restaurant was mediocre but the servers were...

The hotel is going thru a renovation, new decor, updated equipment, ample room. Great swimming pool and spa. Shuttle drive to the airport, great food, excellent service, bikes to ride. Nearby mall, theater and other places to dine nearby. The river is great for walking, and there is a park nearby.
