“Clean, Comfortable. Good Coffee!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

The room was very clean, which is #1 with my husband and me. Very comfortable beds, lots of soft pillows, large screen tv. No a/c in our room, but it's always breezy on the Oregon coast, so that wasn't a problem. Breakfast was nice, the coffee was very good. Friendly owners and staff. Next time we're in Florence this is where we'll stay. But we will difinitely make a reservation and get a river-view room.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room.

The king river view room was very clean, quiet and obviously freshly updated. The bed was great; we slept well. The upstairs river view rooms probably make a difference for better. We'll stay there next time we are in Florence. Management and front desk very helpful.

We stayed 2 nights in a parking lot room, there is no a/c so we had to keep the window wide open to not be hot. The noise from he patking lot and staircase made it hard to sleep, im sure the river rooms do not have this problem? The continental breakfast was minimal at best (no eggs or meat). The room was recently remodeled, and the beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The rubber duck was a nice touch. When we asked for an extra duck for our second child he tried to charge us $3- even though we stayed 2 nights and you get one per night. I found that cheap since we just paid 260- for our room. Overall our stay was pleasant but I wont go back.

When a guest is unhappy, believe me, we are doubly unhappy. We put a rubber duck in the bathroom hoping to bring a smile to the face of a weary traveler. We do charge $3 for them but in this case the family should not have been charged and instead been given another duck for their second child. The manager said he felt bad about our policy and left to give another duck to the family but they had already left.

To have an unhappy guest is bad enough. To have an unhappy child really makes me feel sad. We apologize very much for this incident and hope they will give us a second chance.

River view room all I expected and more. Great location and truly enjoyed the view and the sounds on the river. Close to the pier, shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend this hotel and town of Florence.

My family of eight (ages 11-60) stayed for one night in two river view rooms. We arrived very late, but the night staff was very accommodating. Place was packed, there were only 2 parking spots left. The river view is wonderful. The balcony is a great place to sit back and relax. The location is terrific to get to the old town for shopping/antiquing . Staff was friendly and the room was clean.

The only drawback was that the bathroom and vanity space were rather small and cramped for four people in the room.

Room Tip: River view is a must!

Exceptionally clean. The river view was wonderful. The king room has plenty of space for a couple. Very walkable to local sights. Great place for chilling after doing the beach or walking through Old Town or shopping the antique stores. Love the laid back charm. Will be back :-).

Room Tip: Choose a river view room.

The Hotel was okay. Our particular room had no view, unless you consider the parking lot. The location was convenient, the staff were friendly, and the room was clean. If I had a river view like others mention, might have moved it up a notch on the rating scale. Without the view, it is only average.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.
