We held a small family reunion in Jacksonville in March, and the Napier Suite at Riverdale Inn allowed our whole family to enjoy the time together to the max--the suite accomodates up to eight adults. This sweeping and gracious, beautifully restored historical landmark building is right across the street from Riverside Park, and central to many attractions in Jacksonville. We lingered over coffee in the gourmet kitchen, enjoyed delicious breakfasts at the Riverdale Inn, and came home from each happy day of sight-seeing, beachcombing and shopping to the sunny and luxurious living room and comfortable bedrooms, each with an ajacent or private bath. All this luxury and privacy, at a price comparable to staying in ordinary hotel rooms--spectacular!

I have stayed at the Riverdale Inn on 3 different occasions, all business related, and every stay has been nothing short of excellent. The Riverdale appears to be a beautiful historic home and the decor is very tasteful. The rooms are larger than many B&B with very comfortable beds. The meals, including the breakfast are excellent. I have eaten dinner at the Riverdale on 2 occasions. They have an excellent bar and while the wine list could be improved, it still exceeds what you normally see at similar establishments.

I have found their rates to be reasonable and in line with many of the well known hotel chains. The Riverdale staff has always gone out of their way to make me feel very welcome and without a question they have appreciated my business, whether it was my first stay or my third stay. There is no question the Riverdale Inn will meet and could very well exceed any personal exceptations.

This is a wonderful inn, with fantastic rooms and a tremendous restaurant on the first level, and within walking distance of the Riverwalk and close to downtown offices, etc. There is a nice park with riverfront access about 1 block away from the inn. Other nice restaurants nearby (within a mile). Reliable Wifi in the rooms. Excellent breakfast. Friendly owner and staff. Great place.

I've stayed at this property almost every week between September and January. The service is friendly. Rooms are comfortable and include fun robes! The food is fantastic. The restaurant is fun and exciting. I love the Ahi tuna or the Chicken Marsala. So yummy. The creme broule is to die for as well!
You can't go wrong here. Enjoy your stay and keep coming back. Location is excellent, close to many restaurants in walking distance. I know I'll keep coming back.

The Riverdale Inn is a wonderful place to explore Jacksonville away from the big city feel. The house is well maintained and comfortable. The staff is very pleasent and helpful. We attended a concert the night we arrived so we slept through breakfast. On previous stays, the breakfast was very nice.
The Riverdale Inn is a wonderful place to stay if you are unsure about staying at a B&B. The Inn allows you to just enjoy yourself without being overhelpful or making you feel like you are staying in someone's home. My husband and I know how important this is. We own a Bed and Breakfast Inn and for Innkeepers to get away and enjoy themselves is a rare treat. We always choose The Riverdale Inn for our escapes from reality.

Our brief weekend was a wonderful escape from our normally hectic schedules. The Windsor Suite was the perfect romantic getaway setting. The decor was lovely and the jacuzzi tub was an added bonus! The staff was wonderful...helpful and extremely pleasant. Breakfast was scrumptious and the varied choices for breakfast were a step up from your "normal" B&B. We look forward to returning for a longer stay.

A great place to stay. The accommodations are very attractive and the bar is wonderful. I didn't eat dinner there but the menu looked wonderful. Breakfast is part of the package (B&B!) and an excellent meal.
