The Valley River Inn is located in a city just 15 miles from my home. I have recommended it many times to family, friends and business associates. I did not truly realize what a treasure I have in my own backyard. Recent events in our household has made time for quiet reflection, personal connection, or just plain sleeping and relaxing difficult. This coupled with our own busy work lives made travel to a nearby resort difficult to impossible. So my partner said... how about staying at the Valley River Inn? I was intrigued- the reservation was made... a room by the river was secured.... and we made plans for our getaway. We arrived, were greeted by wonderful people, entered our private sanctuary, opened a bottle of wine, put our feet up and after about an hour of staring at the river- felt like ourselves. IF you are coming from out of town... this is a great place. If you live in the Eugene area, THIS IS A GREAT PLACE to come and relax and return to your own center. We had a great time; we will do it again.

Room Tip: A room on the riverside has a small patio where you can watch small crafts float by, osprey play and...

I was in town for a conference. We brought our dog with us for an overnight stay. Valley River Inn is perfect for pets. After dinner we took a walk along the river path which was easy to access. The hotel has been renovated and looks fresh. The room was large and the bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get up in the morning. I loved the all white linen! Breakfast in Sweetwaters the next morning was delicious. We sat with a view of the Willamette River and I had amazing Eggs Benedict. I like the new look of the hotel and always come back for the friendly staff and location.

I stayed at this hotel a little over a year ago and it was a dump! But, since the renovation, the rooms have been dramatically changed! I booked through priceline and when I arrived, they allowed me to upgrad to a King Deluxe room that had to be around 500 sq feet with a balcony for only $5.00 more. What a bargin! The staff was friendly and the surroundings have been updated as well. Great job on listening to the customers and making this once prominent hotel a more enjoyable experience!

Room Tip: upgrade to king deluxe when you get there...it only cost me $5.00

Quality of the beds was the highlight, they also had larger flat screen TV's. No view at all if you count looking at a parking lot. They promote the place as almost all rooms can see the scenic river. At that the river is not a highlight or great to look at and only a selling point.

The positive is its located across the street from a mall and surrounded by several restaurants.
The room was a bit dark, while the bathroom and sink area were well laid out and upper level nothing compared to their competition. Not impressed if that helps

We hosted an anniversary party at the Valley River Inn this summer. We invited friends and family from out of town to stay in the rooms at the hotel. The clean and updated and modern rooms, lobby, and restaurant were very nice.
The whole experience with the catering staff who helped us with our party was excellent. They are professional, caring, and were attentive to every detail.

Room Tip: Be specific about getting a river view which is worth the small upgrade price. Also specify that you...
