Staff was very friendly and out going. This carried over to all the guest encountered in the hall. Everybody acknowledged each other (staff and guests)... all with a smile and a greeting. Can't give it a five rating because the room had its issues (none that was too critical, just an inconvenience)...temperature control could have been better, movie channel was...

We stayed here on the way up to Washington State and on the way home. The rooms are spacious and clean. We had our cat with us, so I appreciate the hotel's pet policy. Staff was friendly. Food in the restaurant was good.

This hotel is the one non-Marriott stop I am always eager to make. The lobby with its alluring fireplace and SweetWaters lounge/restaurant alone make staying here worth it. The rooms have been renovated fairly recently and are much improved with new carpeting/beds/bathroom vanity. The riverside location also gives it a certain charm. There is still a slightly dated feel overall...

This is the second time staying at this property. They definitely don't disappoint, I wish all hotels were this nice and accommodating. Rooms are clean, spacious and most have a river view. I would highly recommend the breakfast buffet, especially if you can get it included in price. Both stays, we booked the shop and stay package, I feel it...

We had a room that we booked on black Friday at almost half the normal rate. For the regular rate I would say it was decent, for the discounted rate it was stellar. The room was modern, clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay again!

Although predominantly a seafood and steak restaurant, this hotel's main restaurant offers a Vegan Cauliflower Steak sautéed in curry and cardamom, served on a bed of basamtic rice with side dishes of grilled green beans, sautéed sugar peas, grilled eggplant and a mango relish. Service is quick and friendly.

Convenient location in Eugene. Easy access from the highway and across the street from Valley River shopping center. Close to restaurants and stores. Ample free parking in their lot. WE had a view of the pool but the weather was way too cold for pool use.

We were upgraded to a very nice suite after the king rooms (which we had booked) were sold out. The room is clean and well appointed. We're within walking distance to Valley River Center and Regal cinema.

I go every summer, often in August, and always spend the day at the pool. I drink margarita's and sometimes have a burger poolside. This year I learned that the concierge level rooms where discontinued, which I was disappointed to hear. They have a breakfast buffet available, but it has not changed or upgraded in years. Still it is one...

Though a bit dated we've found the Valley River Inn to be a convenient, clean and friendly stop to our trips from Settle to So Cal and back. Love to walk or ride bike path along the river. Convenient to Autzen Stadium as well Food is OK
