Beautiful place to stay! Came to Florence for work and Wayne and Susan, the owners, were very accommodating to our ever changing schedule. I will be coming back with the family (ok… may not the kids!)

Room Tip: River side view is awesome! Well worth the few extra dollars!

We often check Trip Advisor to make sure our guests are happy with their stay. When we get a kind review like yours, it makes our day. I especially want to thank you for your kind remarks toward our housekeeper. They work hard and it really does make their day when they get comments like yours. I do apologize for being out of the bananas. They seem to be a favorite of the different types of fruits hat we have and we do run short on occasion.

what a beautiful place. we stayed in rm 112 and it had a wonderful view of the river. the room was newly remodeled and beautiful. although the white bedspreads and the open bottom furnishings are going to be a nightmare for housekeeping. the staff were some of the nicest people. a housekeeper cleaning the room next to us was very kind and helped direct us to some local points of intrest. the front desk staff helped us find some great restaurants just a walk away. i had one of the best halibut dinner at a great pasta restaurant just a block away.
the only real complaint was there were no bananas for the comp breakfast. thank you, River House Inn for the great weekend.

Room Tip: romm 112 was perfect. couldn't hear 101 and a good view. it looks like most of the rooms on the...

A wonderful place with freshly renovated rooms. We had a spectacular view of the Siuslaw River estuary and the Siuslaw River bridge and the dunes. Wife thought we would hear the roaring of vehicle traffic but our room was quiet and peaceful. The continental breakfast was fair but decent. Nice flat screen TV and cable and wi-fi access. Location was great as it was an easy walk to the old town shops and restaurants. Owners were very helpful and couteous to make our stay a memorable one. Looking forward to stay there again real soon.

Room Tip: Tripadvisor has never steered me wrong yet.

The remodel so new that construction was still ongoing, a lot of noise during the day. The room was nice and the view of river and hwy 101 bridge was beautiful. The best part was friendly and very accommodating housekeeping staff. Close to restaurants and shops (walking distance). All in all a very cute place

Room Tip: Our room was on the south side overlooking river , #16 on the first floor was really nice.

We were very impressed with the clean, updated, modern décor. Compared to the national chains our room had cute personality. The storage space was a bonus, along with a nice long counter at the sink. The room was a little small, but the fresh and clean décor more than made up for that. Friendly staff and walking distance to historic downtown made it even better.

Pros:
friendly staff
new décor
clean room
close to historic downtown

Cons:
beyond the main exterior looks a little drab, but don't let that deceive you
small room (ours faced the parking lot)
average breakfast

We were very happy and would stay again!

We get one of the spa rooms. Besides the spa, these are larger and furthest from 101 (quietest rooms) and with a great view. The new furnishings were an added plus. Friendly staff. Just average complimentary breakfast.

If you're looking for a cool view this is an amazing place. If you're looking for comfort, this place is ok. I wouldn't stay in the rooms without a view. If you don't get a room with a view, might as well go to a chain hotel. The rooms were very clean and freshly painted, just nothing extraordinary.

Room Tip: If you don't get a room with a view, might as well go to a chain hotel.
