“Staycation at Riverdale Inn”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

A great place for our weekend getaway! The Park Suite was beautiful, with a cozy fireplace in our room. A delicious made-to-order breakfast and friendly innkeepers made our stay even better. The hotel is close to Memorial Park and within walking distance of the Cummer Museum, the Riverside Arts Market, and many restaurants in the Riverside area. The front desk person said that the hotel is busier on weekdays with business travelers, but mostly empty on weekends. We asked for a last-minute-booking discount and received a significant percentage off the usual room rate.

This was my third visit to Riverdale. It is a quaint spot that we've come to love. The location is terrific to walk to great funky restaurants. Each morning we have enjoyed a lovely homemade breakfast, cheerfully prepared, and delicious. NOT KIDDING! It's a treat to stay here. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. Since our last visit, the bar has been relocated to a cozy room near the back deck. It's an honor system, which is such a breath of fresh air. And the new location is a terrific idea to allow guests to enjoy the afternoon and evenings breezes outside as the weather allows.

Room Tip: Each room has a different feeling. We have stayed on the second and third floors, depending upon ava...

This is our second time at the Riverdale Inn. One simply can't go wrong staying here. The location is great, the rooms are great and the staff are 1st rate. Eric is an amazing chef and you will really enjoy the meals!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the 2nd floor.

Our children purchased a voucher for us on Living Social as a holiday gift. Two of them go to UNF so it was a perfect present. We absolutely loved this place. Historic and a bit funky but lovely. Stayed I the Roosevelt Room which was one of the lower priced rooms but it was charming nonetheless. Cute little bar that operated on the honor system. Breakfast was very tasty. Would definitely go back and would highly recommend it.

Beautiful, spacious home. Clean rooms, great location, quiet. Enjoyed the honor bar, delicious breakfast by the fireplace and in room jacuzzi with bath robes. Easy parking and access to I-95. We loved it.

My husband and I were going to be visiting the Jacksonville area for a concert. Happened to find this place through a livingsocial deal and decided to make a weekend out of our trip. The staff was so welcoming, room was clean and cozy, and breakfast was delicious. Being in the downtown area, with parks and restaurants nearby, it made for a great location (we brought our bicycles which was perfect!). Overall, this place was amazing and we enjoyed our stay...we will be back!

My wife and I really enjoyed our visit at Riverdale. We had a relaxing lovely room, easy guest parking and we appreciated the excellent housekeeping throughout the B&B. The breakfast each morning was excellent with extra high marks for the blueberry pancakes. We look forward to our next visit.
