The Riverdale Inn is a hidden Jacksonville treasure. Each room looks inviting for a week or a weekend stay. The staff are service-oriented and friendly. The homemade breakfast served in the stylish dining room was exceptional. Our family will return to the Riverdale Inn; can't wait for the next visit.

My husband and I just stayed here on our wedding night. The room was gorgeous and had a wonderful 2-person jacuzzi tub. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The location can't be beat! one block from the beautiful Memorial Park and river and walking distance to shops and restaurants and the historic 5-Points. I would highly recommend this B&B...

We only had one night here but the location is excellent and the rooms so cozy that this was the perfect choice. All the facilities are excellent - wide screen tv and wifi worked a treat. If you can schedule some time to sit on the porch and take advantage of the bar, I would recommend it. There's a jogging...

The Riverdale Inn was so quaint and lovely - 10 rooms all with their own special touches, an old 1890's mansion - very reasonable, family owned - Eric the son was an amazing host and provided wonderful recommendations for restaurants and shopping - plus full breakfast is served pancakes, waffles, omelette whatever you're craving they serve it! We will definitely...

The Riverdale Inn Bed and Breakfast was an incredible get away for my girlfriend and I. The area was absolutely gorgeous, and the rooms were very welcoming and made us feel at home. The service was incredible, unlike anything else I've had. Instead of feeling like "just another guest", I truly felt appreciated, and like I was at home, being...

We booked the Margaret's Window room - the last room available - for one night. After arrival and a romantic dinner at the Chart House, we returned to the hotel to retire for the night. We were surprised to find scores of gnat flies on the wall and ceiling of the room. We reported the problem, and found another place...

The guest reported the gnat problem (harmless but very annoying) and we immediately credited their credit card for the room night. Guest went to another lodging establishment and did not stay. We value our guest's comfort and agreed with their decision not to stay. Investigation showed a window pane had lost the calking on the top of the pane. This...

The customer service was so poor that our entire party (we had 3 rooms reserved for Friday night and 4 for Saturday night for a family wedding celebration) left the b and b and found rooms elsewhere. The owner was rude and unprofessional. I do not recommend this b and b at all. We are world travelers and I have...

Unfortunately there was a misunderstanding over the use of the bar by members of the wedding party that were not staying at the inn. Please note the use of the bar is for the overnight guests and not the general public. Only one room was reserved in the main house by the wedding party. As there were seven other rooms...

We stayed in the Windsor Suite for two nights on our wedding weekend, and it was the perfect choice. Bob even let us take some pre-wedding photos inside, which offered the perfect vintage backdrop. The decor was beautiful, almost victorian, but all the modern touches (spa bathtub, wifi) were included. In the morning, we woke up to the smell of...
