Carol Fay wrote a review Dec 2022
Happy Valley, Oregon38 contributions67 helpful votes
River House provided us with a comfortable river-view room for our overnight in Florence. The property has clearly accumulated some years of service, but it's well maintained and clean, and it met our needs. Check-in was smoothly handled (thanks, Mel), and we were given useful suggestions for restaurants within walking distance. Coffee was available in the lobby for our early start. We had a nice view of the Siuslaw River and enjoyed watching the duck population diving for their breakfast. Would definitely stay here again. Location near Florence's Old Town is ideal for visitors

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel was clean, easy walk to Old Town, and even the Little Brown Hen, a great breakfast place! We had a Siuslaw River and Oregon Dunes view. Although we had a mini refrigerator, it did not have a freezer, but the front desk was happy to freeze our ice packs overnight for us. There were 3 of us in a double queen room and we were comfortable. And coffee in the lobby! We had everything we needed.

When our Thanksgiving plans were canceled by Covid, we decided to take ourselves to the Central Oregon Coast for a few days as a consolation prize. We love staying at the River House Inn for a variety of reasons - the beds/linens are very comfy, rooms are not big, but just right with a little table and chairs by the sliding glass doors to enjoy the ever-changing scene along the banks of the Siuslaw River. The clouds, rain, brilliant sunshine and bright stars held the top part of the view, while below, the river, changing tides, sea birds and seals kept us entertained us for hours. We love how convenient the location is for walking to shops, dinner and drinks in Old Town Florence. Check-in was simple as was check-out. Always very clean, too! Looking forward to our next stay there!!

This Inn is really amazing. I have recently stayed here two separate times and it was great both times. The front desk people are amazing. They are really friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and nice. I loved the little rubber duckies in the bathroom. The beds were really soft. I would definitely recommend this place to stay.

The Inn was nice and clean and had a beautiful river view. On the bad side there was no hot water between 7.00 9:15 AM when I called the front desk the gal just said O everyone must be showering at the same time. So I guess if you shower at night this is your place.

Hi Gary, Thank you for staying with us and for noting our super-clean rooms and unbeatable view of the river. We sincerely apologize for our staffer's flippant and unacceptable comment. This will be discussed at our staff meeting! Granted, some rooms do still share water heaters, but they are big enough for a family of four and we don't always run out of hot water. We are in the middle of a changeover so each room has its own water heater. We apologize for the lack of hot water in your room.

We had a room with a great view of the river and world famous sand dunes. It's a basic room but it's clean and comfortable with great wi-fi. You can't go wrong with a visit to the River House Inn which is run by people who really do care!!

This adorable hotel has the best staff!! Our family of four stayed here on our Oregon Coast trip. The rooms were so nice and clean! Having a baby that crawls on the floor makes you check cleanliness a little more thoroughly. The beds were comfy with fresh sheets. The bathrooms were stocked and clean. The location was amazing, right on the river and walking distance to the down town shops! The best part of our stay was the staff! They went above and beyond normal hotel staff. During our stay they were very helpful and friendly. After we checked out, they called us about 30 min later to tell us we left our computer charger in the room, and asked if we wanted it mailed since we were already on the road. My husband also noticed his favorite pocket knife was missing, and the last place we used it was to cut up pizza for our toddler. We asked the staff if they could look in the pizza box that we left by the trash can in the parking lot. They actually found it! They even cleaned it off and put it with our charger to be mailed. A few days after our trip ended, we got both items in the mail! They didn’t have to look in the gross used pizza box for us, but they did. That’s the kind of staff that cares about their customers! We will definitely stay here again!

Awww, thanks, Rebecca. Many of our staff have littles too. That's one more reason we have super-clean rooms. And yeah, we've left stuff in rooms when we've traveled too. We just want to treat others as we'd hope to be treated. We love our town and enjoy making recommendations for our guests to have great experiences here. We hope you will make another trip to the Oregon Coast soon and stay with us again. Be sure to book directly through our front desk to get the best possible price and ensure that you're getting the type of room you want. And thank you for posting your awesome review over here on TripAdvisor and over on Google! We are really grateful that you took the time to get the word out about your great experience here at the River House Inn in Florence!

This was a perfect stop on my way up the coast! Great value, cleanliness and comfort. Great restaurant recommendations and easy walk to old town. Also loved that they had free level 2 electric vehicle chargers for their guests. I would recommend. I did not have a room with view, but those looked great too. Thank you. I will be back if I am in area again.

Hello roadtrippinginnorcal! Five stars and a great review and a recommendation and a statement that you'd stay with us again! Thank you so much. That's the kind of review that makes our day and validates our hard work to “exceed guest expectations with a spotless, reasonably-priced, well-appointed room and exceptional service.” And yes, you're right, the riverview rooms with their private balconies overlooking the river, forest, dunes, and historic bridge are pretty sweet. We hope you book one next time. Be sure to book direct with our front desk to get the best available rate too. Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to comment!

Hi Jo-Anne, Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking a moment to post such a nice review...and give us the highest possible 5-star rating! You're right, the view from the private balconies of our riverfront rooms is pretty awesome--great for spotting fishing boats, kayaks, lots of different birds, plus sea lions, seals, otters, jumping salmon, and every so often, a small family of orca will visit in the spring (but we haven't seen them yet this year). And yes, we are just a few steps from the best shops, galleries, food, and drink in Florence...and minutes from big sandboard and ATV adventures on the dunes, uncrowded beaches, great golf, horseback riding on the beaches or in the ancient forests, lakes, fishing, crabbing (the list is much longer so we'll stop there). Please come again soon and always remember to book directly with our front desk to get the best possible rate and most accurate availability of riverview rooms.
