We stayed at The River Inn of Harbor Town for one night and it was a night we will always remember. We were offered wine or champagne upon arriving. That wasn't a surprise because I had read other reviews that mentioned this but it was still great and goes above and beyond expectations in my opinion. The staff was friendly...

We only stayed here 2 nights, but would have been happy to stay much longer. The hotel is very charming and nicely appointed. The staff is for the most part exceptional. We were helped so much for our stay there by Jalisa and Nicole. It really makes a difference when the front desk personnel are so nice and helpful. It...

We stayed here for two nights, having arrived from NYC. We had a car and from here did all the tourist sights. It's location is close to Highway 40W and the city. We were made very welcome. The rooms were spacious and as you'd want. We had lunch in Tugs on the verandah outside, and had dinner on the Terrace...

I wish I could give River Inn better than an average rating, but in truth, relative to the hotels I have stayed in, it is simply ok. Check-in is a lengthy process for some reason, but at least you get a complimentary glass of wine or champagne to pass the time. Our rooms - two of us - were river...

karlfriedrich1, General Manager at River Inn of Harbor Town, responded to this review

we apologize to the guest for the inconvenience of the lengthy check in and also the slow service in the lobby, this should not have happened and we are truly sorry. We do keep our rooms at a 71 degrees temperature, the room attendant has been reprimanded for changing the temperature, again we are sorry that this happened. We usually...

Charming hotel on Mud Island facing the Mississippi. Staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Very accessible to Beale Street, the Blues part of town. Located next to an upscale neighborhood in which you'd love to live. Also within walking distance of the HUGE new Bass Pro Shop, mecca for outdoorsmen and campers. Breakfast is provided in Paulette's...pick anything from the...

Good room and super comfy bed - it was like sleeping on a cloud. Breakfast was superb at Paulette's Restaurant with lots of choice. Downside of the hotel was that there was no local transport to get into the centre of Memphis which meant it was either a taxi ride every time or a 45 minute walk (each way). The...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in September 2015. Our trip was to celebrate a special birthday, so we were delighted when we arrived and the hotel had upgraded us to a suite. Special thanks go to Katie who checked us in with a very friendly smile and welcome. Our room had a fantastic view of the...

We arrived by car, a little fatigued after driving from Nashvile, but David and his companion whisked the luggage away instantly and removed the car off to park it. We did not have a room with a view of the river, but a very pleasant aspect over the trees and small square nearby. We reserved for dinner at "Paulettes", the...

We were able to book our last minute trip through trip advisor but as soon as we arrived we were told the hotel was sold out. After calling Trip Advisor we were offered rooms at their sister hotels. My advise would be to call the hotel before booking online to assure a room is available.

September 2015 - We stayed for 5 nights at the River Inn, and we were well looked after, with the staff so friendly and helpful. The Deluxe room we stayed in had a view of the Mississippi and we walked every day along the Riverwalk which is about 2 miles in length but worth it. The local shop and eateries...
