“The best birthday I ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

Linda and Carolyn were the most gracious and charming hostesses. We didn't want for a thing. The Inn is gorgeous and close to everything. The rooms are beautiful and the food is excellent. We stayed 4 days/3 nights, and it was the best birthday I've ever had. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to everyone. I did not want to leave.

Run by wonderful people who make it their goal to make you feel like you are at home. Everyone makes you feel welcomed (even Gracie the "inn dog" welcomes you!). It is warm and welcoming!

This is a fabulous place for a relaxing, fun weekend getaway. The breakfast was great, with several items to choose from. The room we stayed in was so wonderful that we stayed in our room much of our visit. A nice flat screen TV with diverse cable choices was available as was speedy internet service. There was plenty of room to spread out and feel at home. Afternoon tea was a great touch. The antiques and Inn itself are amazing and fun to admire. Great stay!

Room Tip: Third floor is very private, but you have to walk stairs. All rooms were pretty special

Our room was so comfortable and we had a jacuzzi in room which was most relaxing!! The breakfast was fantastic. Afternoon tea was also quite a nice experience and replaced our lunch for the day. It is only a few blocks from I-95 and the river. It was a lovely for walking. I recommend the Cummer Museum and Gardens which is also within walking distance. The staff was so wonderful and friendly. I would really love to return.

Stayed at this B and B for one night right before Christmas. Wonderful room and overall experience. Located near a nice park and within easy driving distance to a quaint area of small shops and wonderful restaurants. Owner tends bar in the evenings (altho they need to update their website - their restaurant is no longer in service) staff is very nice and accommodating. The only criticism we have is the breakfast could be bumped up a notch - otherwise - wonderful experience and we'd definitely return.

Great experience at Riverdale Inn. The place was beautiful and very clean. The staff was awesome! It was a wonderful location. The breakfast and afternoon tea was out of this world. We would highly recommend the Riverdale Inn!

Great location--right off I-95. Walking distance to several parks and the Riverwalk (great for runners and walkers alike).

The rooms are spacious and individually decorated. The jacuzzi tub in the Windsor suite is a great amenity. Enjoy hot coffee and juice early in the morning and a homemade hot breakfast each day!
A scrumptious high tea is available with a second day stay.

The house was large enough to have a variety of indoor and outdoor sitting areas. One can relax and enjoy the ambiance.

10-15 minutes from the St. Johns Town Center for shopping and dining. Walking distance to Cummer Art and Gardens.

Just a great place to stay and enjoy!
