Had to find a place to stay last minute while I waited for my early morning flight. Location is excellent in the mall parking lot with restaurants and shopping a short walk away. The rooms are spacious with large beds and bathroom. There is a large pool, a comfortable gathering area, and a restaurant and snack shop. Checking in and...

The Hotel is right by the river where you can find a nice path for walks. It is also next to the Mall and several restaurants which makes it easy to find whatever you need. Ok rooms, nice Staff! Good for families.

Based on some recent reviews, I was a bit skeptical of this hotel. But, I had no issues and was impressed with the large size of the room. I was on the 3rd floor with a river view (albeit a bit obstructed by trees). I did find it interesting how low the shower head and how low the sink were...I'm...

This was my first time staying at the Valley River Inn in Eugene and I will certainly return the next time I'm in town. The staff was pleasant, profession, and very welcoming.

My daughter were in Eugene for a shopping trip, and this hotel was right across the mall parking lot. I didn't expect it to be all that great, because it is obviously an older facility, but we were pleasantly surprised! The room was good-sized and comfortable, the service was excellent and the pool was big and clean. The property also...

We always make out stop off of Hwy 5 here because of access to the Park, beautiful views of the river, nice walks along the river, and the staff is very welcoming... Also very dog friendly! And the restaurant is VERY good, especially if you want to dine outdoor with your pooch :-)

The Valley River Inn is an older property that has had furnishing upgrades.The beds are too firm for my liking and there is a surcharge for a river view. The location is convenient with restaurants and shopping across the adjacent parking lot. The Inn's Sweet Water's Restaurant has a picturesque location along the river and my breakfast the morning after...

Rooms good, meals great, restaurant service great, All of our family enjoyed their stay and said how pleasant the staff was. Sierra, our server for our dinner was exceptional. She took special orders and got them right the first time which amazed my cousin. She was fast, courteous, and we all appreciated her efficiency.

Having stayed here before, I wasn't expecting much. My husband made the last-minute booking via Expedia and I had a gut feeling I should cancel, but I decided to give the place a second chance. Upon check-in we were CHARGED a (refundable) $25 fee "just in case" we choose to use room service. *I will update with the amount of...
