Reviewed 26 August 2014

We stayed one night here and enjoyed a riverfront room. The deck was very nice, with its view of the impressive sand dunes across the river and lots of cormorants. The bridge was a bit noisy, but we quickly got used to it and slept with the door open and a lovely breeze. We followed the restaurant recommendation of the office staff for dinner and walked into town (all of 1 block away) for a lovely meal, and then wandered further down to the harbor after eating. The room was clean and well appointed, nothing extraordinary but everything necessary was there, including free wifi. We'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Definitely ask to be on the riverfront if you plan to spend any time in your room

Not only was River House Inn clean and well maintained, but we had a sweeping view of the bridge and river from our deck. We liked that the inn was just a block from Old Town shopping and restaurants, and offered easy off and on highway access. A great find!

Room Tip: We chose a riverside room but then, they may all be river side rooms and we just didn't know it.

Loved this place...newly remodeled and nicely done. The river was 10 feet from our balcony and the view of the bridge was spectacular. It was beautifully decorated with everything you need (though some may say the room was small). Very clean. Just a walk down the block to Historic Florence with great shops and wonderful food. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was okay. I would recommend this Inn to anyone.

My wife & I spent 3 nights here. From the outside this hotel looks very nice & it's in a great location. However, rooms are very noisy & small. Soundproofing is at a minimum. The people above us sounded like they were moving furniture all night. Sliding glass door did not lock properly. A pin was used as a temporary fix & we did not feel safe. Supposedly people are not allowed to walk by the water however we saw many wandering by. Trucks going across the bridge are very noisy. We did not have the continental breakfast as the room seemed always packed. There is no AC in the rooms just a small table fan. We didn't feel safe at night leaving our sliding door open since we were on the first floor. It's handicapped accessible on the first floor but no elevator to the second floor. We probably won't stay here again.

Room Tip: Upper floor room with a river view. Bring earplugs!

Sorry that your stay wasn't more pleasant, the sliding glass doors actually have to different lock systems for the benefit of security. If you want to leave the door cracked open, you can with our secondary lock. There is another spot for the lock to be placed so that you can have the door open 5 to 6 inches which will allow a cool breeze to come in. People are allowed to walk on the shoreline behind the River House Inn. It usually is in not a problem, as the balconies are 5 to 6 feet above the ground and the ability to lock the doors in the secondary position helps with security. We usually do not need AC's because of our 56 to 75 degree whether we have here and the fans in the rooms are usually enough. Our breakfast area has an overflow upstairs that usually takes care of the crowd that might occur. It has been my experience, that as long as the door is closed, you can't here the bridge noise. Myself and my front desk staff are more than willing to check out any problems and try to take care of it. I thank you for your review and allowing me to help clarify the problems that you had

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and were thrilled by our riverside room, which looked out directly onto the river and the dunes on the opposite bank. The room was spacious and well-equipped and the bed was extremely comfortable. The laundry room was also very useful in the middle of our trip! We visited in July and had no problem with the room temperature. Staff were helpful and courteous: our credit card had expired since we booked the room but they emailed us to check we were sort out the problem.

The hotel is a few minutes walk from downtown Florence, which is a delightful, pretty old town. There is a variety of restaurants to suit different tastes and budgets, and a fantastic ice cream parlour.

Room Tip: Choose a riverfront room so you can sit out and enjoy the view and the sound of the river lapping so...

I wish I had had more time to enjoy this charming motel, but I spent most of my time in the hospital awaiting the birth of my Granddaughter. Do note that if you find yourself arriving late as I did, it is good to call ahead of time. Was told to utilize a red phone outside the office, and sure enough, a young guy checked me in.

Second floor room overlooked the parking lot. So glad a river view wasn't wasted on me this trip, since I literally was only in my room for 6 hours or so, but that was due to baby craziness. Was there long enough to know I want to stay again next time we're in town! Bed very comfortable...loved the DUCK (so much so I had to purchase one to give to Grandbaby in the near future). Very clean. Very friendly.

Location if you want to be able to walk to the cute downtown area...this is perfect! Be sure to check out Siuslaw River Coffee Roasters, grab a cup of coffee or tea, a little breakfast and check out the view out back!

The River House is ideally located right on the river and half a block from the main shopping/dining district of Florence. We stayed in a riverfront (a must) room the first week of July and had no issue with the heat. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room clean and spacious. Breakfast was fine. Stayed one night...would like to go back.

Room Tip: Absolutely MUST have a riverfront room.
