I have stayed here many times for business, sometimes for the entire week. The staff have always been pleasant and friendly every time. It is a great location to walk a block under the bridge to Old Town for dinner. This place is my first choice whenever I stay in Florence.

We usually book ahead, it due to rain, we ended up in Florence. We tend not to stay at chain hotels, as they usually have no character. River House Inn was in the old town, on the river and looked quiet. We requested a room without a view, as it cost less, but they didn't have one with one bed,...

What a great place to stay. The views of the river are amazing and the room rates very reasonable. Spacious rooms, plenty of parking and close enough to walk to town. Continental breakfast offered, staff very accommodating.

Hi Gail B, Thank you for taking the time to write us this nice review. Our riverview rooms are indeed very nice and the proximity to Historic Old Town Florence (and all of its shops, galleries, great restaurants, and the waterfront) can't be beat. Please come back to the River House Inn soon.

Perfect location for us. Great views of the river, cozy well appointed room. We have stayed here about six times and will return! Near to great restaurants and some great small shops. Take a nice stroll along the boardwalk. Old town has a great ambiance.

Hi Carap413, You're so right about the Old Town area. We like to call it "quaint-but-never-commercial." We love being part of that vibe. But most importantly, thank you for this wonderful five-star review of The River House Inn in Florence and for being a regular guest. Please don't keep it a secret...bring your friends next time.

We needed a last minute room and contacted The River House Inn. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. He upgraded us to a river view room without having to ask. The room was comfortable, clean, and very affordable. Can't beat the location if you want to spend some time in Old Town.

Hi TandR822, We're so glad we could offer the upgrade. We wish all our rooms were river view rooms; alas only about half are...and they go quickly during our peak seasons and holidays. So thank you for this outstanding five-star review of your "comfortable, clean, and very affordable" room at The River House Inn, and for mentioning our excellent staff.

We only stayed here one night, and it was a rainy night, too. The room are comfortable and clean, not large, but adequate. Front desk staff was friendly and welcoming and we slept well. They even provide a white noise machine, but even though the Highway 101 bridge is just down the street, we really didn't even notice. It is...

Hi Harvey Z, Thank you for choosing The River House Inn in Florence, and for your positive review. We're glad you mentioned the white noise machine. Not many places offer them, but our light-sleeping guests really appreciate them. And yes, our continental breakfast is just what you describe--something nice to get you up and going for the day.

We normally stay with the bigger chains but took a chance on the Inn. We're so glad we did! The room was very nice and clean. All of the little touches made you smile - from the duck in the bathroom to the sleep machine (that I didn't notice until I woke up) to the towel crab. We were able...

If you're going to stay in Florence, I think this is the spot. Clean. Pleasant staff. And best of all, only a short walk to the historic waterfront area with restaurants, bars, and shops. Plus, the view across the river of the sand dunes is beautiful. It's worth it to get a river view room.

Nice motel. Well maintained. No real view of the water from our room. Breakfast was pretty basic. Nice staff that was very friendly. There is some shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Good for a quick stay.
