Older accommodation on a quiet cobblestone street
Check in was great. Very eager staff. Suite was roomy, but a bit run down. Some nice older fixtures in the bath. Beds comfortable and clean. Huge couch. Kitchen and carpet throughout were very worn, and windows did not shut tight. No privacy sheers on the windows, either. Best feature was the quiet cobblestone street. Very close to Washington and Dupont Circles.

Friendly service
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel is in a great location. Comfortable bed and the kitchenette is a nice amenity if you are staying for more than a day or two. The rooms could use a little updating. The bathroom was updated but there’s still a lot of harvest gold in the rooms. Windows could be replaced to help cut down on the noise a little.

Super Convenient & Comfortable
So happy we decided to stay at The River Inn. Everyone was very professional, friendly and helpful. We had a clean, spacious room which included a dining area, kitchen, separate bedroom with a comfortable king bed. We cooked all of our breakfasts to cut down on cost of eating out. When we asked for a few more kitchen items they were promptly delivered. (We ate one meal in the hotel restaurant and it was great.) Our room was quiet and had a beautiful view of the Potomac and Georgetown waterfront area. Foggy Bottom metro was three short blocks from the hotel along with a Whole Foods and several nice restaurants. It was very easy to travel to all the DC sites, Georgetown & ball park from The River Inn. The hotel is in an attractive, quiet tree- lined residential area .We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again for sure on our next visit to DC.

I always stay at The River Inn
This was my 4th stay at the River Inn. I get a suite with a kitchen. I always like The River Inn and would stay again. Room is clean, quiet (though you can hear airplanes fly over constantly, probably true anywhere in DC). Walking distance to Whole Foods and Metro stop. Coin-op laundry room is clean. Room service available as well as groceries brought in from Trader Joes. Parking is expensive but I just do Uber or taxi.
