I have been coming to the Valley River Inn for years now, mainly because my group uses the hotel for its events. I have also paid my own way to stay here more than once in the past. I don't know whether the management has changed in recent years but the low level of customer service here nowadays tells me...

I stayed here with family & did not pay the rate myself, so I can't offer comment on value. We were a large group sharing an adjoining pair of rooms. That worked very well for our purposes. One room had two beds & minimal additional furniture. The other included more of a living space. Had I been traveling solo &...

I am happy you and your family had a great visit and got to bike around Eugene. We have the Willamette River as our backdrop to amazing bike trails. Thanks for the review.

Interesting view room. Not sure why we paid extra for a view room which was not only a partial view room at best and next to a very busy overpass. The room itself is nice. The outdoor pool is very nice. We had dinner at the restaurant and the food was good. Just not what we thought we were getting...

Locked and secured bike stolen from the hotel parking lot. This was only the worst of the problems. In general tired rooms badly in need of refresh. Hotel staff helpful but there is only so much you can do. You can't shine sneakers or make a ilk purse out of sow's ear.

I do take Security of my guests serious and I sincerely apologize for the theft of your bike. We patrol the parking lot often but thieves are sneaky and succeed at times when we are not right there. I sincerely apologize. I have contacted Eugene Police for added patrols through our lots. We also recognize a need for a refresh...

Nice location, comfortable bed, but dated. Air conditioner was loud, connecting room could be noisy, but an average place - what I would expect from a hotel not affiliated with a national chain. Dark, and dingy - bar area is nice.

Thanks for the review Rick. We are committed to a multi million dollar renovation as we agree; some areas of this historic hotel.... needs some additional love to create an even better experience for our guests.

Nice but could use a little updating. Has a nice restaurant with outdoor seating with a nearby trail along a river with a nice view. It is convenient to Eugene. Provides an airport shuttle. The room provided both a refrigerator and microwave with a kin sized bed.

The Valley River Inn is an iconic property in Eugene. It is not a sleek new property and the rooms are a bit outdated. However, the location right on the Willamette River and on the running/bike paths make it one of the best spots to in Eugene to stay a few nights. I personally love the restaurant right on the...

The room was very spacious. The tables were well arranged as the seating was. The ice water was always fresh. The lunch served was great as the desserts. The restrooms were very clean and very well stocked.

I have no idea how on earth this place has the ratings it has unless a requirement of employment is to post reviews. This place was shockingly bad for the price I paid for a night. Almost NO amenities that even a Motel 6 would have. No complimentary coffee in the room, only a Keurig Machine and pods you could...
