We stay at VRI for a few days every summer as it's a central location to meet friends coming from other areas in Oregon. We are always impressed with the comfort and cleanliness of our room, as well as the efficient, polite staff. The restaurant and bar are good and the concierge room with Chris at the helm was always...

Have stayed 2x at the valley river inn. Very nice staff but a labyrinth of a hotel. Rooms have been updated, I guess; but still incredibly strong 70's vibe throughout the hotel. Shower head and height of the toilet are fine if you happen to be ...short. On the plus side - adjacent to good shopping, restaurants, and beautiful walking...

Many great restaurants close~ my kids love BJ's restaurant. They are there twice in one day! The Bloody Mary bar at the Hotels restaurants on Sat and Sun am is incredable and fun...

The entire location is filled with shopping, restaurants, and even a movie theater within walking distance but it also has an excellent restaurant and Lounge in house. If you are lucky enough to get a room facing the Willamette River be prepared for nature beauty at its best with a balcony view, if not you can walk to the bike...

Nice faculty with a welcoming king lobby and great fireplace. The river is beautiful. The rooms are spacious but very the physical plant is dated. The beds and lines are al good. Definitely clean. Next to the mall with lots of options to eat.

The facility is clean and the price is fair. The people are friendly and respectful. Better mattresses and a room refrigerator would evidence more respect for the comfort of the guests, and could elevate this facility back into the great column.

It was well staffed, the breakfast was unbelievable, the location, the view from the restaurant, the price was reasonable, and it was clean. For an older property, the management has gotten it right. The water pressure was good. My son and i founf the room to be quite large and comfortable.

I stayed here for a short trip last weekend. The hotel itself is nice, well decorated, cozy, a little outdated but not terribly. Missing mini fridges in the room for sure. Location was great for me too since I was mostly visiting in the Whitaker / VRC area, might be a little far out from the campus. Almost all the...

In town for a business conference. The food was excellent. The staff very accommodating. The room was very clean upon arrival. We requested extra blankets and housekeeping brought them within 5 minutes and they clean.
