The motel is older and the rooms were ok for 1 night. The people that worked there were great very friendly and helpful. We stayed at a river view with our puppy. We had a nice walk and rest. The bed a bit uncomfortable. No refrigerator or microwave oven. Would not stay there again.

We love to stay at the VRI. Especially in the summer, the pool is a delightful spot to hang out & order cocktails & nibbles, sunning & swimming. The hotel is situated on the river & on a busy biking & running path. Definitely spring for the river view, it is well worth it. The restaurant has good food &...

I was there to listen to a guest speaker and VRI furnished a very nice salmon and prime rib dinner. I had the salmon, and it was very delightful. Cooked perfect with just the right sauces served with it. We were in a room overlooking the river and could also watch the sunset, superb.

SweetWaters on the River is such a great place to enjoy an amazing meal and relax on the River. Lately our sunsets have been so picturesque, hope you snapped a few pics! Thank you for the really nice review. Come back soon.

I stayed two nights at this property recently as part of a business meeting. This property is very conveniently located off of I-5 and adjacent to a shopping mall. The rooms were clean and the bed was very firm and comfortable. I thought the hallways were especially dated and dark.

Nice location, across from Valley River Center, just off hwy. Rate for a king is 136.00, maybe a little high. The staff is very nice, room is average. tYou can walk across the street to the shopping center, several places to eat, starbuck, frozen yogurt. only a few minutes to UofO.

Reviewed 17 September 2016

This hotel, which has the look of a luxury hotel but is mid-priced, is worth a visit for its great setting along the river and bike/running path, and its unusual, beautiful art/architecture. Our deluxe king river-view room with a balcony was spacious, quiet, and all the furnishings and amenities were top of the line.

Hey David, The hotel was built by the Woodard family back in the early 70's with the wood, chandeliers and artwork direct from the mill. We have a rich history being in a logging state and I appreciate the great review. THANKS!

Outstanding location for this comfortable property in a beautiful setting. The rooms are well appointed for Eugene, and the common spaces and restaurant are very nice. Hallways are a little tired. Definitely stay if in Eugene.

Stayed at the Valley River Inn because I had an early (6 a.m.) flight. The room was large and very quiet. The shuttle left on time with a very friendly driver. The staff was excellent. The location is great, near the mall and several restaurants.

This is the perfect place to stay in Eugene. Nice, modern decor and amenities. Delicious food in restaurant. But, what sets this place apart for me are two things. The location of being right on the riverwalk, and the stellar service that we received from every person we encountered. The personal touches really made the difference. The only thing that...

We stayed here in 10/15 for a romantic night, we got the date night package. Movies, drinks, dinner, and a nice night together with my future wife.

Thanks for the nice review, especially about our restaurant SweetWaters. I too, think Chef Ray's food is amazing. Did you try the Salmon Salad with the crispy artichokes? If not, you need to head back over soon!
