In preparation for writing this review, I looked over dozens of comments on TripAdvisor to see just why this property was gaining so many positive reviews. It seems that this hotel was quite the draw a while back and most of the positive reviews were related to years past. New management and a couple of decades has transformed the property...

Hello bmurf6873, I want to offer my sincere and humble apology for completely disappointing you. I am very embarrassed that we brought you to write this horrible experience we gave you. I will not make excuses, but take this to my team and address each concern. I do not want my guests to EVER feel like this. I really do...

The hotel lobby had a real welcoming feel to it with the fireplace and free apple cider. The room was clean and had a nice view. The staff went above and beyond paying for my taxi since the airport shuttles were full.

We've stayed here off and on for 30 years. It has recently had some remodeling to the rooms, as the last time we stayed was about 5 years ago and it was getting shabby. Perhaps there is new management or ownership, but it did seem much better in the rooms. The overall hotel is clean and nice, and has most...

The room was spacious and very comfortable. We slept very well which doesn't always happen when we stay at hotels. The decor was soft and soothing. The shower was totally fun. Couldn't ask for a better experience

I love sharing things I like. I have stayed here before and thought a perfect place to share the experience with my out of town friends. The rooms are very spacious and the staff was great.

Wife and I have stayed a few times and have always left happy. Large clean rooms every time we've stayed. Staff has always been friendly and efficient. Restaurant is great but the hotel is also conveniently located near other popular restaurants if in the mood for something different.

The rooms were large and clean. The resort is a mixture of updated and dated but over all a pleasant place to stay. The resort is steps away from the Riverbank Path System (being a runner I really enjoyed this) and minutes from down town. Staff was friendly and helpful

Valley River Inn is an older, long time retreat in Eugene, Oregon. As the name indicates it is right on the Willamette River and within a very short walk to Valley River Center. The Inn has been around for a long time and therefore some of it is a bit dated, especially in the rooms. BUT, that doesn't detract from...
