Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 29, 2011

The hotel overlooked the Mississippi River on beautiful Mudd Island. We enjoyed walking along the river and through the beautiful neighborhoods.
The service offered at the hotel was top-notch. Everyone was helpful and pleasant. We enjoyed the views and happy hour each evening at the roof top bar.We cannot wait to return!

Great hotel, couldn't fault it. Our room looked out to the Mississippi river. It's in a quiet but very safe neighbourhood but it is easy to get to Beale street and other downtown locations, it's a 10 min walk to the main street trolley and we paid 9 dollars for taxi back. Downtown memphis is quite rundown so this hotel is a good choice to stay.

The River Inn was absolutely fantastic, we were upgraded upon arrival and our room faced out on to the river. The staff at the front desk were wonderfully helpful and knowledgible about local attractions. We ate in the restaurant and it was a very good experience. We also ate in the bar located across the street which is owned by the hotel and we were not disappointed.
It is a great place to stay, sadly the only downside is Memphis itself and in particular Beale Street which does not live up to it's reputation.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay from the complimentary champagne when checking in to the delicious gourmet breakfast the next morning. The bed was exquisitely comfortable, our room was quiet, with no street noise whatsoever, and the view of the river was lovely. We definitely plan to stay there again.

Room Tip: We got the "standard" room which is small but well appointed.

The River Inn is an exquisite, small hotel on Mud Island. What a little gem!! We were delighted with our immaculate, quiet room that overlooked the Mississippi River. The bedding was the best we've ever experienced in a hotel, the staff was very courteous and welcoming, and the included gourmet breakfast was a real treat. We will definitely stay here when we return to Memphis!

Room Tip: As for a river view

The hotel is lovely, charming and elegant, well kept up and I highly recommend it. The staff is gracious, helpful and made me feel like I was in a friends home. The room was tiny but just decorated and appointed to the hilt; the bathroom was spacious and well stocked not to mention the bed was one of the best nights sleep in a while. A very comfortable bed with high quality sheets and coverings. The inn has lovely reading spaces, coffee on the floors in the morning and was a nice change from the hotel chains at the same price. It was a welcome sanctuary in the middle of a hectic work week.
