I ended up booking the Riverdale Inn when I noticed that its prices were similar to the surrounding chain hotels (hilton, hampton, omni) that my co-workers had suggested. The walkable, lively area, the water nearby, the uber-friendly staff and the cozy decor throughout the Inn made me so glad that I did. Instead of settling for clean rooms and free... More

16 of us had tea this afternoon and it was delightful. Linda is such a warm host and made us all feel very welcome. The food was delicious. I do believe the scones are some of the best I have had at the many tea rooms I been to. I was especially impressed with how smoothly Linda compensated for an... More

This was an amazing afternoon tea. We can't wait to do it again real soon, actually thinking about doing it every several months. I would highly recommend this as a ladies day out. Food was great, quiet enough to be able to talk, not like most restaurants where you sometimes can't even hear yourself think.

A lovely inn with a very friendly helpful staff. Beautifully restored. The rooms are nicely decorated and sitting areas are very comfortable. Walk to restaurants, parks, shopping and the Cummer Museum. Wonderful breakfast choices. Free parking and Internet.

We stay in B&B's frequently, so this review is based on past experiences and comparison. The Riverdale Inn does have a great location. That was a big plus for us as we have family living down the street. The downside was the Lancaster room. Really time for some updating. Old worn carpet and old worn furniture. Dimly lit and in...

We visit our daughter several times a year in Jacksonville. Our stay at The Riverdale Inn exceeded all of our expectations. The room was delightful with a comfy bed. Having a honor bar and living room to entertain our daughter and friends could not have been beat. The neighborhood was great for walking/biking with cute shops and a great restaurant... More

We have stayed several times a year at Riverdale since it opened. We always receive a warm welcome, a wonderful room with exceptional bedding, a terrific breakfast and incomparable ambience. It is conveniently located to excellent restaurants, shops, museums, all within walking distance of the inn. The staff is friendly, helpful and most accommodating. It has become our home away...

We loved staying here! Amazing historic home. The owners are wonderful and the breakfast was delicious. We met so many nice people who were staying here as well. Location is perfect, walking distance to beautiful Memorial Park and great restaurants. Highly recommend staying here over any hotel downtown.

We stayed on a Friday night. Check in was very easy and the staff was ver welcoming and informative. We walked less than 5 minutes to Five Points for dinner, ate dessert while relaxing in Memorial Park, and then walked a couple minutes back to the inn. Our bed was comfy, the room was nice and cool, and it was... More
