“Good Conference Location and Pets Welcomed!”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

Overall, it was a nice place to stay and the conference area was serviced well. The person working the sound system was helpful. Did not go the restaurant this time as there were too many people and too crowded. Having our pets with us was a plus.

My daughter and I came to Eugene for a U of O Tour. We could not find any other hotels with availablitly on a Friday night, except for The Valley River Inn. I think we got lucky finding this hotel. For all of the ammenities, clean rooms, and price. We scored! We even decided to stay another night, which was not a problem. My kids went bike riding on the river trail and had a great time. If I ever come back this way, I will definitely stay at the Valley River Inn again.

We were in town for a track meet at the university. Valley River Inn made it a vacation for us. The rooms were updated and clean, the staff was helpful and friendly, and we enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the restaurant at a window seat overlooking the river. It was nice to be able to go for a run along the river on the 12-mile path that goes right past the hotel. A great experience overall.

The hotel hallways and rooms are very dated, the halls more so. That being said the room itself was very big, had a balcony, and the beds were nice, clean, and comfortable. I did notice I few hairs in the shower wall that were not ours... I guess because of the buildings age you can hear everything around you, It sounded like there were 10 people staying above us. Overall for a one night stay in Eugene it was fine. There is a Macy's and plenty of restaurants right beside the hotel.

My father and I visited Eugene to visit The University of Oregon, and was told that The Valley River Inn was the place to stay, and it most certainly was. The staff was unbelievably friendly, the food in the restaurant was excellent quality, and the service was fast and convenient. Rooms are clean, and our specific room had a balcony overlooking the cascades. The location is great, overlooking the river, and it it just a few miles away from the heart of the university. I highly recommend staying here!

The sprawling facility on the banks of the Willamette River provides wonderfully spacious rooms with all of the standard amenities. The convention space of ballrooms, meeting rooms and services can meet the needs of most small gatherings to several hundred attendees - all in one facility. Their restaurant, Sweet Waters, provided adequate fare, although it seemed a tad on the high side for price. This location is great for almost every lifestyle, with walking/jogging trail along the river, easy access to the highway, a shopping mall across the street and lots of specialty eateries within easy walking distance. All in all, a great place for whatever you have to do when you stay in Eugene.

Room Tip: My room faced the highway, and there was some vehicle noise, however, there are lots of rooms that f...

An independent hotel in a very nice river front setting. Price (special rate) was about right. None of the usual "breakfast" included. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The shuttle could be advance booked for things other than the airport. Room service menu had limited breakfast choices. I would choose it again.

Stayed March 2013, travelled solo
