When you are 70 years old you make a lot of mistakes. Like reserving a room for a night, and turning up the next. I did this on Booking.com and faced the prospect of not getting a room, paying for an extra night, or paying the booking fee. Fortunately, Bailey was behind the desk, and she undertook to contact Booking...

I've stayed here several times. The entire staff is super friendly (but not obnoxiously so) and equally accommodating. There's a great restaurant and bar on site, with a beautiful view of the river. Just outside is a green walk along the river which goes miles and passes by beautiful gardens. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable (beds are great)....

Very comfortable bed to crash in. There seemed to be a fair number of cars in the parking lot, but inside the hotel, it was very quiet and my night was restful. It was nice to have a lounge in the lobby of the hotel. I also appreciated the coffee in the lobby in the morning (great way to start...

I stay here at least once a week, I love the location if you get here early in the day their is a mall and movie theater walking distance. The restaurant has great food and a breakfast buffet every morning. The hotel staff are excellent and there is a shuttle if you need to go somewhere.

When I think of a hotel in Eugene, the Valley River Inn comes right to the top of the list. It is the best location for Oregon Duck Football games and has a great setting. Most hotels have a city feel, but the Valley River Inn feels like you are on a vacation.

Breakfasts ordered via room service were excellent and fresh and warm. However, entry hallway to rooms were dark and dingy. Most windows on property were smudged and dirty. Hem in sheer curtain in my room raveling and raggedy. Staff friendly enough, but interior property itself needs deep cleaning and updating. Will attend conference again but will not stay here.

my wife and I have stayed with them several times and we always enjoy our stay when we do. The room is spacious, clean and smells nice. The restaurant is really nice with views along the river, and room service is also very good.
