“Cute little motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Room was clean (but small), furnishings up to date. View of the river was great. Location is an easy walk to old town. Breakfast was only so-so...there was a shortage of everything, and no coffee to be had other than what we made in the room.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the river.

Thank you for your kind review, our goal her at River House is to help our guest have a great stay. Not sure what happened with the breakfast, We constantly are going over to make sure every thing stocked and we always have 2 to 3 pots of coffee in the breakfast area. After breakfast is over, we still have a coffee pot in the office which is maintained through out the day.

I loved it here. We splurged for a river view overlooking the dunes and bridge. Fantastic! The rooms are very nice and cozy with a country feel. Very clean rooms and very comfortable bed. Everything you need is in the room. I liked the added touch of make up removal wipes for the ladies and the rubber duck in the bathroom.

The breakfast was fine for being complimentary. A lot of people were crammed into the room but we ventured upstairs and it was empty. Maybe a little sign letting people know they can go upstairs?

Only a minor issue: The young lady was at the front desk all day it seemed and the two times (12pm and 4:30pm) we went into the lobby she was sitting on the lobby couch eating watching her mini ipad. Maybe do that somewhere else? Such a minor issue that they don't affect my rating but just wanted to point it out for a guest perspective on 1st impressions.

We fell in love with Florence and will be back and will definitely stay here again!

We stayed one night as we passed through Florence. Our room view was beautiful. The room was clean, staff friendly & morning breakfast very delicious. We liked that we could walk downtown for dinner at a variety of different restaurants. We will definitely stay again.

We have stayed twice in the last 2 years just to get away and relax on the Oregon coast. Must select a room over looking the river, with a small balcony to enjoy the scenery. Very friendly front desk and other staff. Short walk to the old town Florence with shops and restaurants. Serves breakfast in a small room, but the food was very good. Most definitely coming back.

Room Tip: Staying upstairs on the river side is wonderful.

We have been to Florence many times over the years but never stayed there. We were traveling this time with another couple and decided we wanted to stay in Florence. After checking around, I found this hotel listed in TripAdvisor and AAA, and decided to give it a try. This is a gem! We were within walking distance to the shops and restaurants, and had a very nice room overlooking the river, which we requested. The room itself was immaculate! We have never encountered such a well taken care of property and we have stayed at very pricey 4 star resorts. My only suggestion would be that if you do not like traffic noise, but still want a river view, ask for a room a little further away from the bridge. Overall, a very pleasant experience!

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room away from the bridge.

Our view of the parking lot was not incredibly pleasing. The rooms are hot and stuffy and there is no way to get any air. We has the pleasure in staying in the room next to the laundry. They run the washer/dryer machines late at night and early in the morning. You can hear it and feel it in room 101. The room is small and packed with furniture. Overall not a fan.

When we have an unhappy guest, believe me we are doubly unhappy. We are investigating your comment about noise from the laundry room at night. For light sleepers we do provide a “white noise” machine next to the bed that probably would have solved your problem.

This is an excellent hotel. The view from our room was outstanding with the bridge to the left and the dunes to your right and all the water wildlife in the center what more could you ask for. How about an easy walk to wonderful old town Florence with its great shops, exceptional restaurants and overall very friendly people. You want more well how about very friendly staff, a very clean room, a great bed that lets you oversleep one morning, and a good breakfast. Well if you want all of the above this place will give it to you at a very reasonable price. Don't miss it. Oh yes and you can hear the noise from the bridge but it doesn't disturb your sleep.
