Lovely facilities, everything went smoothly, excellent location right in Riverside, great service. Our room was beautiful and a good size. The breakfast was excellent. All the staff we interacted with were nice.

A great way to feel like a part of the Jacksonville community vs staying in a big soul-less resort. it breathes history and it's within walking distance to a supermarket and the five points area of shops and restaurants. Nice riverside walk and park 2 minutes distance.

Beautiful inn--quiet, clean, and curated with Victorian antiques. I gave my niece a baby shower during afternoon tea and the inn keepers made it so special. Food was delicious and they accommodated special diet needs easily. The inn is located by the water so views are lovely. The Avondale area is nearby so fun shops and resturants are easily accessible....

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Riverdale Inn. It was a lovely home and our host Eric was very helpful. Our room was very comfortable and well appointed. We had everything we could need for a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the breakfast and the chance to lounge in the rocking chairs on the veranda and enjoy the sunset on...

Stayed here mostly because of the location, which is very convenient to downtown. Plenty of parking around back. Family run operation, this impressive historic home was completely renovated some years back. It is lightly staffed, and it is showing the inevitable signs of wear. A place like this almost needs a full time maintenance person. Needs paint, cracked window panes...

We loved the Victorian house, appointed with antiques and China. The rooms are beautiful and the hosts add little touches, such as their own brand of herbal bath grains and soaps. The bar adds a novel touch (they fix your drinks during the day and at night it is an honor system). Breakfast was tasty to boot! We will be...

We stayed at the Riverdale Inn for 4 nights over a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The location is ideal for the very active area and within walking distance of several restaurants and shops, Memorial Park and the Cummer Art Gallery, and the river walk. We enjoyed the Roosevelt Room and it was as clean and pretty as...

We chose this location at the last minute because it was down the street from the Cummer Museum, which we wanted to visit. Turns out it is also up the street from Memorial Park and just a block or two from the Five Points neighborhood. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the rooms were individually furnished and decorated with...

The facilities are quite nice, but the ambience was not what we expected. There was no early evening social hour or any attempt for other guest mingle Breakfast was good but ordinary the choices were eggs, pancakes and waffles The room was adequate but the bathroom was not; climbing into the tub to take a shower was an adventure we...

I stayed at the Riverdale for 5 days for a conference as a solo woman traveler - the location is awesome - very short walking distance to shops and restaurants. Nice river walk close by for running. So much better than staying at a chain hotel along the highway! The Inn is charming with modern convenience - great wifi, premium...
