“Wonderful service, quiet and comfortable room, perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2010

I really enjoyed my short stay at the Riverdale Inn. I was in the "Oak Room" so I was able to view a giant moss-covered live oak tree. My room was spacious, clean, comfortable and extremely quiet. The breakfast was delicious and I was able to walk to the Cummer Museum as well as a Starbucks. Free wifi and a computer is available for guests. I was surprised how well the air conditioning worked throughout the Inn as that is not often the case in older buildings. Despite the heat, the entire Inn was cool and comfortable. My only suggestion is to upgrade the bathroom amenities to include a conditioner for hair washing and a moisturizer/body lotion. It is so difficult to travel with liquids these days.

The beautiful Victorian inn has been very nicely maintained and refurbished. The room was lovely and the bed was super comfortable. Staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. The inn is in a great location for walking around the Riverside area. Would definitely stay again!

The Riverdale Inn was all it was described to be. From the beautiful room to the location just across the street from our son's apartment and less than a block from the expansive St. Johns River and waterfront park. So close to shops and restaurants you can walk. My favorite spot was the second floor balcony where we spent two evenings visiting and enjoying some good wine.

If you are a business traveler like me who hates big hotels or the chain hotels in general, this is the place you need to stay in Jacksonville. I come to Jacksonille twice a year and make sure I stay at the Riverdale Inn for the cozy beds and quaint setting. The bar is a perfect spot to grab a peaceful drink and meal after long day. Food is great.

I have and will continue to recommend this place to anyone I know who plans on visiting Jacksonville. Its like home.

My new husband and I were celebrating his 30th birthday and I surprised him with a stay at this cute Bed and Breakfast. After staying at these nice inns during our honeymoon, I have become a huge fan of B&Bs over your standard hotel. They have so much character and charm, and Riverdale Inn lived up to that picture. It was a great stay in the Windsor Suite---a fantastic two-person tub and nice two-person shower. Very romantic. The breakfast of a Belgian Waffle for me and scrambled eggs with bacon and toast for my husband was top notch. The service was great, and the room was in great condition. I would definitely recommend this inn if you would like a unique and memorable experience in Jacksonville!

I travel quite a bit and stay in lots of various motels/hotels with the occasional B&B. I have a tendency to avoid B&B's because most are not as quiet as thick walled hotels. Well the Riverdale Inn changed all that. The rooms are quaint, quiet, homey and very comfortable. The Inn is an historic house in a wonderful part of Jacksonville with shops, stores, and restaurants nearby. But you can forget about going out to eat because one of the best places to eat is right down stairs in The Row Restaurant which was voted as one of the top eating establishments in Jacksonville. I have stayed at the Riverdale Inn 5 times during the last 2 months and will do so on every trip to Jacksonville.
