We chose an upgraded room on the third floor for our mid-week stay. We believe it is an upgraded room largely due to the roomy bathroom that contains a large jacuzzi tub. This is, however not why we chose this room. We do not really value a jacuzzi tub as other guests might. We went online before our stay and chose this room because of the comfortable-looking furniture. Our plan was to relax and read in our room for much of our stay, and the pictures of this room appealed to us. The room was lovely and comfortable, with the exception of one of the two large reading chairs. One of the large tapestry chairs lost its spring and comfort. It was quite hard and sank when we sat on it. As there were two large chairs in the room, we traded off sitting in the other, very comfortable chair.
The room and floor were very private and lovely. The entire inn was quaint and extremely clean. The only thing that detracted from the peaceful atmosphere was the traffic noise from the vehicles on the street and the planes and helicopters in the air, something the innkeepers cannot do anything about.
By far, the greatest asset was the hospitality of the owners. From suggestions of restaurants to directions to the cheerful offer of a homemade lunch to shared family stories, the people greeting us each day made us feel welcome and at home. We only wish that we were introduced to them by name when we arrived, so that we could greet them by name. All in all, we had a very pleasant experience at the Riverdale Inn, and we WOULD return. We already have our second floor room chosen!!

Room Tip: All the rooms look quaint. Some have queen beds, some king. Make sure you're up for the trips...

Wonderful inn, beautiful and comfortable rooms, delicious food, warm and efficient hosts. The location is another plus. The Inn is a short walking distance from the famous Cummer Museum, Freedom Park, the St. John's River, and great restaurants. We're looking forward to our return visit.

I have been staying at the Riverdale Inn for several weeks a year for the last 4 years. I have always been extremely pleased with all facets of the Inn. The Inn Keepers (Bob, Linda and Caroline) are very pleasant, and close by should the need arise. The rooms are very nicely done, clean and airy.

The location (Five Points) is very close to excellent restaurants, grocery store, coffee shops, and, downtown. I like the Mossfire Bar and Grill, Al's Pizza, and the local Sushi joint!.

Definitely an A+.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so keep that in mind if you select a 3rd floor room. I like rooms #2 and #5 a...

We realy enjoyed our stay at the Riverdale Inn. Thank you Linda and staff. Our stay could not have been better. We enjoyed the Cummer Museum and the Orchid display at the garden club, both within walking distance. Your delicious meals and the wine were just wonderful. We have already told friends and family about our amazing week-end. Thank you again.

Room Tip: The third floor is a hike.
