      There was a large bug in our bathroom in the middle of the night. When I told the front desk the next morning instead of an apology I got asked if I called the maid...not the response I hoped for.

    • Family with children

      The city of Eugene. You just feel at home. Valley river inn is the place if serenity is what you are looking for

      No refrigerator in the room. Should take kettle more care of the patio over looking the revier so people can actually set in it and enjoy.

    • Older travelers

      It needed updating, new carpets, mini refrigerators, microwaves, and restricted pet rooms. Dog dandriff was a problem for me since I am allergic. There was notice of being a pet hotel.

    • Older travelers

      Location. Next to river and trail.

      Sheets were rough and it did not seem like there was a mattress pad on.

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      The floors were stained and was dirty and didn't want to walk in bare feet. Some stains looked like a crime scene. They were very large. For $139 this was in poor taste. The a/c would not cool after dark.

      I like a lot of things about VRI - unfortunately, it is showing it's age. The river is wonderful...I love the location. Having access to the park and the walk ways is really a plus.

      The room was so noisy I couldn't believe it! We were on the second floor and it sounded as though the person above us was alternating between jumping on the beds and rolling their suitcase around and around. It woke me up several time during the night. The carpet was dirty and stained....but then you know that don't you???

      I have stayed at the vri before, and I found this trip even better. The staff at vri was exceptional!

      chose for good food/bar in house location to shopping will request river view room earlier next time had a very nice stay

    • Older travelers
      5.0

      I made a hasty decision to book based on the University's upcoming Parent's weekend, the Ducks Game, the Circus in town, and the homecoming event. I was hoping simply to insure a place while I searched to find someplace closer to U of O. After reserving I was VERY angry to find that there was not a cancellation policy in place, and that a very average room cost way too much.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Rooms were big, nicely furnished, view was excellent, quiet

      pet friendly?- said in our paperwork, we were to receive special amentities for our pet-my husband asked about it, since we were charged an extra 25 dollarsfor having a pet; the guy at the desk acted like, what are you talking about? He gave us a plastic bag for our dog!! I remember one ad listing all the special things they provided, being pet friendly, and then...nothing, feeling bad that we even asked about it...

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      Sweetwater Restaurant was excellent. King room was spacious and nicely decorated.

      We felt that you "gouged" us for the one night's stay on 9/21 (over $300) as we paid $138 on 9/28 for an even nicer room. Just because it's a "football" weekend is not justification for such an increase in price.

    • Single
      7.4

      Close to everything

      My sliding door in room #220 did not provide access to the out side patio. I did report this to a housekeeper, but was not fixed by the time I checked out. Room service was quite spendy.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Everything. I have stayed there before and would stay there again.

      It is a little spendy, but rates are similar to other comparable hotels in the area.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Pillows, bathroom. Bar closed early and restaurant service erratic.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Everyone was so friendly, and the room was nice.

      Nothing, it was a great stay!
