My husband and I booked the Margaret room and were very happy with our visit. The room was very clean, the staff was very friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. We definitely plan to come back and stay again soon. Jacqueline & Matthew

Travelling on business I normally stay at the big chain hotels. So when I arrived at the Victorian Riverdale Inn I was not sure what to expect. What I received was a great and comfortable room, a warm and hearty breakfast and friendly staff. I'd stay here again in a moment!

This family run B&B is a great place to experience the charm of the south. It is great for small groups, large traveling families or business folk who don't want the sterile feel of hotels. Its easy to get to, plenty of parking and close to downtown. The owners are very accommodating. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance and there's...

Carriage house out back is a bit shabby (and dangerous) in comparison. One if our party tripped and fell on the unmarked step just inside the door. This seems like it should be a code violation. Otherwise, the inn was lovely, the staff accommodating, and the breakfasts yummy.

The Bad: Huge house in a superior location & we were given a nice upgraded room, however it is showing its age with sadly faded window treatments and art prints, mildew on the inside of glass of some art. In our room there were large cracks in some walls (caused by the sagging building - the house is old and...

We were excited for the Concours d'Elegance car show at Amelia Island that weekend. Eric, the innkeeper on duty when we arrived at 8:30pm, obviously loves his job. He informed us about breakfast (included in the rate, cooked to order, available from 6:30-9am), then asked if we wanted the ice bucket filled (seeing that we had a bottle of prossecco...

This is an excellent B&B on Riverside Avenue in Jacksonville. The room is very spacious,clean,comfortable King bed. We love the honor bar located in the house. The St Johns is close for a morning or evening walk. Service was great. Breakfast is by order on your own time.

We were very happy with our stay at Riverdale Inn. The room was perfect and our breakfast was delicious. My husband is really picky about his fried eggs and they came out great! We didn't feel like we were overcharged a single penny. It is so hard to find a comfortable bed when you have neck and back issues and...

The breakfast could have been better. The french toast was undercooked and the eggs weren't good at all. The room itself was very nice. The bathroom was nice and big, the bed was comfortable, the room wasn't cluttered up. The staff was nice and accommodating. Not a very good value for what you get.

Fifth stay at Riverdale Inn for my wife and I. Fabulous rooms, great hospitality ... perfect in every way. We've stayed in various rooms ... all are nice. Great breakfast; ample parking. The Riverside-Avondale neighborhood is great for dining and walking. We'll be back.

Thank Richard M
