River House Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location by river and excellent restaurants. My only complaint was the beds are too hard.

Great location, nice rooms, overall an awesome place to stay.

Feels comfortable & safe. Not loud. Convenient location. Clean & comfortable.

When I was looking for a room in Florence (Oregon), I noticed that the hotels were priced moderately high. I picked the River House Inn based off the location, and the other reviews. When I arrived, I was impressed with the location. It's in the heart of downtown Florence, within walking distance of a number of restaurants and small businesses. The gentleman at the front desk was nice enough, and the room was overly 'ok.' Average and ordinary summarizes the hotel perfectly, with the exception of the location.

I found this to be comfortable and very clean. The river view was lovely on this beautiful October weekend, especially as the sun came up. It was quiet, parking was easy and room access simple. The breakfast room was disappointing. Every known form of white flour and sugar, lactose free yogurt and some scary looking hard boiled eggs. Wasn't looking for much and that is what I got. Overall a comfortable, pleasant stay that was overpriced.

There was a gross stench of urine. The room was not clean and very outdated

The room was lovely, clean and spacious. There was even a rubber ducky in the bathroom. Super cute. There was not any AC, however there were fans, so that kept the room at a comfortable temperature. I normally have a tough time sleeping away from home, but not this time. They have a sleep machine in the room which I credit to my sound sleep. The staff was nice at check in and check out. The breakfast was great! They have a waffle machine!! The hotel is walking distance to many cute shops and restaurants. I really enjoyed my stay and will stay here the next time I come to Florence!

it was great - nice staff - convenient to dining - would stay again !

What a darling hotel, with friendly staff and perfect location, walking distance to darling restaurants and shops. We loved it and would definitely recommend to others.

The rooms come with complimentary rubber duckies. Best hotel freebie ever.

River House Inn is a nice place to stay in Florence. Locate adjacent to Old Town and the river it is close for shopping, eating, walking around or sightseeing. Rooms are comfortable but walls are thin. Staff was friendly a breakfast was good.

The hotel is located at a quiet spot, close to old town Florence and not too far (30 minutes drive) from beautiful Cape Perpetua and the just restored Heceta Head Lighthouse. The room was very clean and staff was friendly. We were pleasantly surprised.

Very nice accommodations, comfortable, friendly staff. Nice walk from hotel to the historical part of town. Great location.

We don't usually stay in off named Hotels!! This was such a great surprise!! Very Clean, Excellent Location, Amazing This was day 4 of our travels and was a Much needed surprise!!!

The motel is located right in old town Florence. You can walk to the coffee shops and restaurants. The place looks average from the outside, but the rooms are all updated. Really quite beautiful, including the bedding.

Some units on the river but it is next to Florence's "Old Town" which has tourist shops and good restaurants. Pillows were horrible, bathroom very small but room was clean. Check in clerk was less than happy and even with the location the room was over priced.

The best part about this hotel is it's a stone's throw from the quaint, historic waterfront area. Lots to see and eat! There are two sections to this hotel–one that faces the river, which seems to be newer, and one that is "off-river" and what I think is the older section, where we were. Our room was decent, but very small (I marked the comfort level "average" for this reason.) Good wi-fi. The beds were firm but comfortable, and the cleanliness was ok, except we had to rinse our coffee pot before use, there was quite an accumulation of dust behind the end table and there was an unpleasant, suspicious looking stain on the foot cover of one of the beds. No air-conditioning, but there was a ceiling fan which helped somewhat with the stuffiness in the room. Summer rates at the coast are high, so I felt the cost/value ratio wasn't quite there, but it seems to be the going rate for comparable lodging.

Rooms were fairly clean, although there is a "old carpet smell" on entering the room. We stayed two nights, but shampoos weren't replenished after the first night, so we made do with what's left as I was too lazy to call and get some more. Since it was fairly close to highway 101, there was some road noise, so at night, it was either open the window and get fresh air, or close the window to reduce noise.

Actual keys, no "cards that get wiped out near a cell phone". Good restaurants nearby. We went to the Bridgewater. Live music at a walk-in cafe down the street. Just there for the night, I would go back. Located on Bay Street, right off 101.

This is a nice hotel tucked away in the "Old Town" part of Florence. The room was a good size with all the amenities (fridge, desk, etc.). The view of the river was beautiful. The free breakfast in the morning was also very nice with waffles, yogurt, fruit, breads, etc.
