Great stay in Florence OR on the central Oregon coast at the River House Inn. It's very walkable to Old Town Florence with cute food, bars, coffee, shops, etc. We upgraded to a river view room and it is totally worth it ;) Really great experience with a clean room, decent free breakfast (waffles!) and nice staff.

The room and housekeeping was great. We went for the hot tub room, and it didn't work and they wouldn't reduce price or refund. All the controls were old and broken. You had to use a rubber plug that kept draining the water. Bad experience with front desk that had no authority to adjust bill.

Hello benhoshaw59, Though not the most favorable write-up we've received, we are grateful that you took the time to post a review and to give us good marks for housekeeping and the room itself. In fairness to future guests, we must say that three different people explained the operation of the spa, and one person came to the room and...

The location was the best thing about the lodging. The room was ample size and had all the necessary amenities. However, the water coming into the wash basin took too long to get hot and I ran out of warm/hot water in the shower and I do not take long showers! Had to rinse soap out of hair with cold...

Hi Bab1947, Oh no! There's nothing like a cold shower to dampen (pardon the pun) a great stay at a hotel. We are so sorry about running out of hot water in your room. The issue was short-lived and has been corrected, so thank you for alerting us of the problem so it could be fixed. And thank you for...

The motel is well situated with easy walk to Old Town - and to the best restaurant in Florence (Waterfront Depot). Clean, and nice view to the river, bridge, and dunes. Thin walls so we heard exactly what our neighbors were saying. Bed sheets were very soft and luxurious. Bed was on the hard side for us, and the pillows...

Hi Bettyanna1954, We are grateful for your very complete review of The River House Inn, and for mentioning the great view, clean room, our awesome staff, and proximity to the attractions of Historic Old Town.

Friendly staff and right in the heart of the action. Continental breakfast was good and it's just a short walk to the best coffee in Florence at Siuslaw River Coffee Roasters. Rooms were clean and quiet.

Traveling down the coast and looking for a place to stay at the last minute we weren't disappointed with the River House Inn. Rooms were clean and comfortable, but the best part was the view of the river. Otters and lots of birds could be seen in the rivers and the occasional sea gull would stop by the balcony for...

Located right in downtown Florence, the hotel was clean and quiet. Had a nice continental breakfast. Negatives were the uncomfortable beds. Our room was billed as deluxe river view. Pretty view, but not really deluxe.

Hi michellepS9002RX, After as many years in the hospitality business as we've had, we've learned a thing or two. One of those is that one guest's "perfect" bed is another's worst nightmare. We're sorry ours were not up to your standards. Nevertheless, we are glad you found your room clean and quiet, but if we dare say, compared to most...

Only spent one night; however, room was immaculate, staff (Sarah) was friendly & helpful, the view unbeatable-riverfront looking at dunes, bridge, forest. Bathroom was small but very well stocked with toiletries. Many unique shops, eateries in easy walking distance!

The bed was nice and comfortable, the room was a little small. The view was great and the room was very clean. The breakfast was very slim pickings. They only had cereal and waffles and other small things.
