Excellent surprise! We were unsure what we would walk into, based on the fact that it only gets two stars, but we were beyond delighted with all aspects of the hotel. Boutique touches throughout and CLEAN!! Will definitely stay again and reccomend to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Centrally located hotel in Seaside. Walking distance to everything. Beach, restaurants, shopping, etc. Room was modern and very clean. Loved the fact they have free DVD movies you can rent (oldies and current titles). Decent selection for breakfast. Staff was very friendly. Easy check in and check out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great place to stay if you want to be close but still able to drive out of town. The rooms where a little small for the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was great, but unless your reservation specifically states, "river view", plan on being in a room with no balcony overlooking the parking lot and DQ. Also, don't expect any meat at breakfast. However, the hotel is new and clean and they have done some fun things to make it very comfortable in the lobby area and outside by the river.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just beautiful rooms. Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Not really a view but a great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay again"
The hotel was nice. We had a suite with separate bedroom which was great but would have been better if adults and kids were in separate rooms. The river view was lovely and it was very peaceful sitting on the balcony watching the river. Breakfast was basic and minimal. Pool and hot tub were nice. Everything was clean and the suite had everything you […] could need in the kitchen. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, modern and dog-friendly"
This hotel is doing most everything right. It's clean, modern, well-kept, the staff is very friendly, they are one of the few really high-quality dog friendly hotels in the area, the breakfast is good, they even have a small basket with dog towels and treats waiting for you. Even the small details, like the hoops you have to jump through to get onto […] the WiFi, were pleasantly easy. We received an upgrade to a 2-room suite and couldn't have been happier with the room or the overall experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great service, beds and rooms, close to downtown, great pool! I would definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a quick stop to sleep"
the hotel was clean and the breakfast offered was great! we stayed just to sleep while on a road trip but it was a pleasant stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay, Hotel recently opened"
The hotel was very nice, and located only a 5 minute walk from the beach! The only issue was the hotel had barely been open a month and they were still working on finishing the details. The kids loved that they had warm cookies at 4pm, the swimming pool, and salt water taffy in the lobby and room : )Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Last minute trip and worth it"
Very clean hotel. Very polite staff. Located only a block from the main tourist street area. Our room was next to the elevator on the 4th floor and the hotel was quite full that night but it was quiet! The beds were comfortable. My only complaint is our room was on the small side- not much space between all the furniture. The beds are higher than normal […] which was challenge for our young kids but a fun one. Would stay here again. A good deal during the peak summer season. There is a free breakfast but we opted the donut shop a block away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I'm glad I didn't pay for a view room as it wasn't much of a view. The furniture was newer but dinged up a bit. It was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great breakfast, clean room"
Very clean, modern, spacious room. We had a great balcony overlooking the river. The free breakfast in the morning was extensive and great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great all around!"
All around great! Great location. Super clean all around. Amazingly comfy beds. Great extras. Will stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our second night to stay into different rooms. Something sticking out of the box spring on the side of the bed caused us to be hurt scraped our leg. My wife experienced in one room and I experienced it in another room. It is hidden by the sheets. Also the coffee maker didn't work and we went through a little frustration with the person that […] came up to help insisting that the hotel was 100% full and could not exchange it with another room. We knew that the hotel was probably 10% full. But finally after talking and talking the coffee maker was exchanged as it was defective. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
more gym equipment and larger room needed. Unfortunately the river side is very stinky! lots of dead anchovies! Breakfast can use a little more variety. Overall hotel is clean, new, and proximity to the beach is very good!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Seaside Hotel"
We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. Very comfy and clean, great breakfast buffet. Large Movie rentals for free as all rooms have a dvd player. They also had bike rental for free. Great hotel just 1 block from the main strip.\\Had a great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Awesome hotel...loved it. A couple of things....the beds are high in the air so if you were a person of short stature or had limited mobility , this could be an issue for you in getting in and out of bed. Breakfast is very limited but good, no hot eggs etc if that matters to you...we don't mind as we are not big breakfast eaters. They have lifts to […] get people into the pool and hot tub...that is neat. No complaints...front desk staff were awesome, hotel itself is new and spotless. . Hotel is steps away from restaurants, entertainment and the beach and the river in front is pretty. Quiet when we were there. . Would absolutely recommend and would stay here again in a minute. Thanks for an enjoyable stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and service."
This location is very close to beach. The room is very clean and the service was great! Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

River Inn exceeded my expectations, although I did pay a fair bit for the room, but guess it's because I booked in the peak season. The staff was awesome, very friendly and genuine. Everything is new and maintained well. The only (small) issue I had was that the bed was pretty high, I needed to hop up to the bed. Probably one of the highest bed I've ever slept in. Location was good, I didn't need to be at the beach. There's also a children's playground, very cute. I would highly recommend River Inn.

Great place, wonderful staff..close to beach & town..a bit noisy on the city side...morning noise ..garbage trucks & street cleaners..no view of the ocean but still a nice view...river view would have been better..
"Big pricetag, big beds."

Booked this hotel at the last minute. We LOVED the little playground, pool, breakfast, etc. However, I feel the price is a little steep. Also the beds are so high that a vertically challenged person like myself (& kids) had an extremely difficult time getting on the bed.
"Paid $100 too much - could be good if sorted out details"
08/17/14 trigirlsheila London, United Kingdom
We paid over $250 for 2 adults and 2 children for one night in one room with two queen beds. If it had been around $150, it would have been reasonable value and I would have been happy. For $250, I expect excellence but it was only ok. For the money, I expected a spacious room and a cooked breakfast. But, no, we could hardly fit our luggage in the room and breakfast was cereal, toast and waffles. I did not like the fact that breakfast was served on paper plates - it did not fit in with the price and general upscale atmosphere of the hotel. Also, breakfast is served in the lobby, which was utter bedlam. All the tables are very close together and once there are people sitting down, you cannot move between the tables. The hotel was probably full and we must have come for breakfast at a busy time and there was actually nowhere in the breakfast area for us to sit. We went outside, which could have been lovely, but it was very hot and a there was no absolutely no shade. The pool was very nice but it didn't open til quite late in the morning, so again, when we got there, it was packed with very boisterous older kids, who unfortunately were playing rather dangerously and inconsiderately. I don't think think the hotel pays any attention to what is going on in the pool. Maybe CCTV would be a good idea. Apart from being too small to store our luggage, the room was comfortable and stylish. However, we did have a problem with the soap and shampoo dispensers in the shower falling off the wall and onto our feet. We paid an extra $10 for a river view. We did have a river view, but we were also at the end of the corridor right next to a busy road!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the River Inn. Every staff member we encountered went out of their way to be helpful! The facilities were great and our kids loved picking out the free DVDs from their library. I especially liked their saltwater pool. Very nice new place to stay in Seaside!
"Two Night Stay - Wonderful"
08/16/14 Caitlyn G Vancouver, Canada
My Husband and I stayed here for two nights in August 2014. We didn't know what to expect, but we loved it. The rooms and entire hotel were nicer than we expected. Walking distance to the beach, nice location by the river. The breakfast included was good, we liked the waffles especially. One nice surprise was that they had two bikes that could be borrowed. We borrowed them one evening and biked along the promenade at the beach. It was a great bonus that we loved! We would definitely stay here again. The only reason I give it a "very good" instead of "excellent" is because the first day we were there the room smelled a bit like something had burnt. When we spoke to the front desk employee about it they said that a guest had burnt popcorn in the room that morning. I don't think this is the usual for them at all, and I would still stay there again. Left the window open for a bit and the problem was basically solved.

We had not planned our last two nights in the Pacific Northwest and decided to go to the OR coast. I chose the River Inn based on other Trip Advisor recommendations. They were very accurate. Clean room and comfy beds. Everything very close by for walking down Broadway or walking the Promenade along ocean. We came during the beach volleyball event and so Seaside was pretty busy. I thought the hotel would be noisy, but our room was actually quite quiet which was surprising to me. Since reserving online I mentioned it was our 25 th anniversary getaway and we received quite a welcome when we arrived. Such a nice gesture and so appreciated! The front desk staff were so kind and genuinely interested in us and our stay. Yes, cookies and DVD selection were nice added touches.

I don't usually review places I stay online but this stay warranted a few words.... This was my first trip to Seaside and as I planned it at the last moment I was afraid of not finding per friendly lodging, but there was a vacancy at the River Inn for the two nights I needed and although it was a little more than I wanted to spend it turned out to be well worth the additional cost!! A short walking distance to the beach and the main street with shops and restaurants. Upon arrival the front desk staff were very friendly, welcoming and informative about the hotel amenities and places to see around town, even providing a walking map... I paid a little extra for a river view and it was well worth it!! There was an adorable welcoming basket for my dog in my room with a dog bowl, his own towel and sheet, and dog biscuits.. The room was clean and very comfortable and not at all smelly as can be the case in some pet friendly places I've stayed... The bed was a little high for a shorter person such as I am but very comfortable! An other added touch were the warm freshly baked cookies available in the lobby each day at 4pm.. The included breakfast was plentiful, and the fire-pit outside was a nice gathering place for the guests in the evening over looking the river.. and If you have children which I don't, the outside play area was very nice... All in all this deserves 5 stars and if I am ever visiting Seaside again there is no question where I will stay....
"An Excellent Stay"

We had a family reunion and decided to take a trip to Seaside. The Riverside Inn was a great stay, with friendly service and extremely comfortable beds and clean rooms. The lobby had a pretty decent DVD library if you want to watch a movie during your stay.Checking was quick and easy. Would come back again.
"Highly Recommend the River Inn in Seaside, OR"
08/14/14 fpmartinez Selah, Washington
We stayed at the River Inn the 2nd weekend in August, 2014. We were very pleased, especially because the hotel was brand new (just opened 2 or 3 mos. ago). The room was very clean, spacious enough for the two of us, with a mini fridge and microwave. The king bed was extremely comfy! The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect...within walking distance to the beach and the downtown shopping area and restaurants. We had a balcony view overlooking the river and yes, there was a very strong "fishy" odor, so the only advice I would give to future travelers is to not pay extra for a balcony view because you will not be able to stand the very strong odor. Other than that, I would highly recommend this hotel!
