“Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Looked a little old school from the outside, but while small, the rooms had been nicely updated, were super clean and had great river views. They had a better than average complementary breakfast buffet and free wi-fi. We'd stay again..

Room Tip: Second floor rooms on the river side have great views.

We booked this room because it was rated #1 on Trip Advisor. We drove down to Florence from Portland for an afternoon party and hoped that we could get in and get changed before normal check-in time. They accomodated us, no problem. The room was very clean and the bed was great. I needed an ironing board and iron and the housekeeper was very helpful in getting it for me quickly. There were only two towels in the bathroom so I requested additional towels and they were more than happy to get them for me and our granddaughters loved the little ducky that was on the tub.
It was very quiet there. It seemed like the rooms were booked so you didn't have neighbors which was a nice touch.
I wasn't that impressed with the breakfast. They did have a waffle maker to make your own waffles but it was pretty crowded around there especially with the table & chairs right in front of the counter top where all the food was and the coffee kept running out. The eggs were hardboiled and there was bread to make toast but you had to wait your turn. I wouldn't take points away though because we weren't really there for breakfast and what they offered was a nice touch. We would stay again.

Room Tip: look on the internet to pick your room. Our window looked out to the parking lot and I would have pr...

Stayed here for four nights in September. The rooms are wonderful. Continental breakfast was so good, and a great way to start a day of sight seeing.Just on the edge of old town and some of the best restaraunts ever. The owners are so nice and met some of the most interesting people at breakfast. Would go back in a heart beat.

A basic hotel but probably one of the best in town. Great river views from some of the rooms. Good prices. No eating establishment. Breakfast provided however. Free wireless. Near the shops of the old town of Florence.

This was an awesome place to stay. The office was beautiful with Christmas decorations and a warm cozy fire. The owner was cheerful and happy. He even called our room to see if everything was well and informed us of the great restaurants within walking distance. Our view looked out over the bay and you could see the cool looking bridge crossing the Siuslaw which was very pretty at night. The room was nicely decorated and roomy. We would certainly stay here again.

My husband and I were driving down the coast of Oregon when it came time to find accomodations for the night. I saw the River House in a travel brochure and gave a call: Susan, the owner answered. She was very helpful, giving price for the stay and directions. The Inn is nestled at the edge of Old Town Florence, on the river banks. Our room had a great view of the river and bridge. It was quiet and exceptionally clean - I mean GLEAMING. The outside access to the rooms and "old fashioned" metal keys added to the charm. Susan has thourough knowledge of Florence's many excellant restaurants. She gave us 3 recommendations on that evening, allowing us to make our decision, not just directing us to a partner's establishment. After a wonderful meal we had a great night's sleep on an exceptional bed - after a week of uncomfortable hotel beds, finally a good night's sleep! All of this in two cloudy, damp, rainy days & nights - like a ray of sunshine! A good value and nice people.

Room Tip: Head to "Old Town Florence"

A 'no-nonsense' facility with very good continental breakfast and clean rooms. A nice departure from the in-town casino. Close to the river if you want a view and walk-accessable to old town Florence.
