I highly recommend this inn if you're looking for a central location in Jacksonville. The Riverdale is wonderful place to stay with comfortable accommodations, delicious breakfast and very friendly and accommodating innkeepers. This was my second visit and I will return to stay on future visits to Jacksonville.

We had a wonderful stay last weekend - the rooms are well appointed and comfortable and there is a pub and a sitting room with fireplace open to guests and a number of lovely outdoor spaces. So close to Five Points' restaurants and bars, Starbucks and the Cummer museum. Highly recommended!

A beautiful inn with spacious rooms and hearty breakfast. I was arriving late and they were very helpful in making sure that everything was in order when I got there. The inn is in close proximity to some great restaurants.

Heading to Jacksonville for a football game, we chose to stay at the Riverdale Inn on Riverside Ave for our two night stay. We enjoy staying in bed & breakfast inns. This was one of our all time best. First, the mansion is beautiful. Built in 1895, staying here takes you back to a different era when few lived in... More

Our room was nicely decorated and a good size. We enjoyed coffee on the communial balcony in the morning and wine in the evening. The location is right at five point, easy to get around. The owners and staff are very friendly. The breakfast was on point.

A beautiful old home in my favorite area of JAX. The staff was super helpful and nice. Great breakfast and I like the honor bar system. They even allowed us to store our baggage after check out. Hurricane Mathew had just hit so I'm sure its even better when cleaned up.

This beautiful victorian B&B is nestled between the St. John's river and the eclectic "hip" Riverside area in Jacksonville. It's close to many great restaurants and quaint shopping opportunities. Riverdale Inn sits just feet from the St. John's river and offers breathtaking views of the river and of Riverside. It has 10 beautiful, comfortable, private rooms. We loved the breakfasts,... More

First the good stuff: It is a beautiful historic building in my favorite part of the city- Riverside/Avondale. It's half a block's walk to the river and 1 block from Memorial Park, making for a great walk in the mornings. It's also 2 blocks from the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. On Saturdays, there is the Riverside arts market,... More

We stayed here for a family weekend event in Jacksonville. The Inn is cozy with very comfortable rooms. The breakfast were different daily and delicious. The location adjacent to five points in a historic neighborhood is fantastic. Great B and B if you visit Jax.

Great old house in a wonderful location to walk to Five Points area, Cramer Museum and arts under the bridge. Breakfast was great and made to order - at various times we had waffles, pancakes and omlets. Everything was fresh, well prepared and nicely presented. Enjoyed having access to the honors bar. Off-street parking is huge for us and they... More
