Lovely hotel close enough to Beale Street but away from the tourist action. Great bar at rooftop level to watch the sunset over the Mississippi. Friendly people and lovely facilities - highly recommended.

They treat you like royalty. Our room was cleaned to perfection thanks to our housekeeper Dora who takes great care of you. The front desk and all of the staff are wonderful. We had a wonderful time!!

This inn is lovely and functional. We were there for a business meeting, but I can see how it would be a perfect weekend romantic getaway. My room was comfortable, the four poster King bed divine. It had a desk so I could work between meetings, and was in a quiet location (room 305). There was a bathrobe provided, and...

Just spent three days in early January at the River Inn of Harbor Town and found it a truly lovely B & B ...except that it was actually a relatively small hotel. The lobby was small but very cozy and friendly with live music late afternoon early evening. The rooms were good sized and ours overlooked the Mississippi which was...

We stayed for 2 days at the River Inn and were surprised after reading all of the good reviews. We found the inn to be old, the room smelled musty, and the carpet was dirty. We didn't feel it was worth the price, although it may have been high because of the time of year. There was no one to...

We would like to sincerely apologize to the couple from New Jersey who found our Inn “disappointing”. Our staff is extremely grateful for their bringing these items to our attention. We attempted to call these guests in order to obtain more information and to apologize to them. A message was left, and we sincerely hope to speak with them personally.

This is a very charming hotel located on the Mississipi River, the staff were excellent and the breakfast each morning at Paulette's was included. What a superb treat! The hotel is only a 5 minute taxi ride from downtown Memphis. The rooms are well appointed and there is a wonderful turn down service, where you are spoiled with port and...

We were greeted with very friendly, helpful service at the front desk upon arrival and check out. We were called by name and treated as if we were very special guests. The room was beautifully appointed, immaculate and comfortable. There was "turn down service" that included truffles, port wine and pastries. River view was wonderful and room was very quiet....

My wife Sandi and I come to the River Inn often, but this last occasion was the best ever regarding accommodations, service and the genuine hospitality we've come to respect from The River Inn and Paulette's Restaurant. We were provided the table we requested for dinner and server, Isabella, was an absolute charming delight. Manager Biatta and Hostess Heidi were...

I have stayed at this hotel twice, and it is my favorite! The rooms are comfortable, the staff if helpful, and the food is delicious. I have recommended this hotel to friends for a couples getaway and they said it was just perfect!
