“Back Again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

This was my second visit to River House. Everything was delightful. Servicve staff outdid themselves, again. Love the balconey on the river and will be returning. Very short walk to Old Florence and some lovely restaurants.

Room Tip: River side rooms by all means. The coffee provided is so good I don't bring my own when I stay...

Booked by phone on our drive up the coast and it was seamless."Beds were comfortable and the location is off of the road and quiet. Only overnighted so didn't get a river view room but had we stayed longer we would upgrade. Very hospitable owners offering lots of area activity suggestions.

Thank you for your great review. We do try to give out as much information about the area as possible. Sometimes it is easy to give out that kind of information when we have a great little community like Florence. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip.

This was our fourth stay in Florence and second stay at the River House Inn. I love this hotel! The rooms are very nice and very clean. I love the little duck in the bathroom and the crab made from towels by the sink! Very cute! I love looking out at the bridge and the river and watching all the birds. When the sun is coming up in the morning, the sand dunes to the right turn a beautiful orange so you need to get up early to see that! I wish I had stayed here the first two times I was in Florence! I'm not sure why anyone would want to stay elsewhere! The River House Inn is wonderful!

Room Tip: We love the ground floor rooms. They have a great view of the river!

Thank you for your great review and I am glad that you enjoyed our rubber Duck. I do get a lot of comments about the Duck in the rooms and starting to here about the crab as well. We also thank you for your kind remarks on the cleanliness of our rooms. We do here a lot of comments about the view off the bridge and the wild life as well. Again, we thank you for your great comments and hope to see you again soon.

We loved the view of the bridge and the location was great for exploring Old Town. Our room was comfortable and the bed was excellent. We only stayed one night, but the room would accommodate a longer stay in comfort. We would definitely stay here again.

River House is an older style facility with relatively narrow rooms. However, the rooms have been recently been renovated with fresh finishes and lighting. Bed was comparable with higher end hotels, and furnishings would easily accommodate a multi-day visit with a desk, and a table with two comfortable chairs. Breakfast bar included a nice spread of self-serve items such as cereals, pastries, yogurts, and waffles.

The only room ventilation is through the window which opens to the walk-way, and drapes must be closed for privacy. This wasn't a problem for the quiet time that I visited, but during summer this may present more of a nighttime problem. The facility does not have an elevator, so mobility limited visitors should request a downstairs room.

Room Tip: Choose a room toward the middle of the building for less foot traffic right outside your window.

We pulled off the road and found 'Old Town' in Florence. The River House is almost under the bridge so I was a little concerned.

What a surprise! The room was totally updated with really nice amenities.

We've been traveling for 10 days and this was the best place we found the whole time.

We stayed here last year and again this year, both times on the river view side. (We like Old Town Inn as well, when visiting Florence). The rooms have beautiful furnishings and the bridge view is SPECTACULAR. Very unique! The gentle lapping of the river water, against the shore, is calming. Enjoyed watching the birds too. The room is clean and the colors subtle. Simple breakfast with fruit, pastry, instant oatmeal and waffle maker. Excellent restaurants a block away (easy walk). Note: The bathroom and sink area is on the small side. Some bridge traffic can be heard during the day. Very little traffic at night.
