Excellent B & B

5 sur octobre 28, 2017

We only stayed one night as we were attending a concert at Daily's Place, but would definitely stay again if in the area. The B & B was spotlessly clean, the staff we met during our brief stay were all friendly and helpful. We chose Margaret's Window - room 3 - which was plenty big enough for 2. The breakfast was also good and cooked to order. We always try to look out family run places on our travels and the Riverdale Inn did not disappoint.

Wonderful Family effort.

4,6 sur octobre 28, 2017

Three generations of family operating the B and B and they were are delightful, friendly, and attentive to guests. So close to downtown, great location by the river and competitive pricing. Glad to have found it.

Excellent stay!

5 sur octobre 26, 2017

Excellent stay, very clean and the staff is so friendly

Superb stay.

5 sur octobre 18, 2017

Gorgeous antique mansion was more than inviting and pleasing to the eye. Beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, delicious breakfast. Will return again for a longer stay next time. Thanks to the Innkeepers.

Home was a little tired. Needed painting in some common areas. Staff was friendly. Great location. Would stay again!

Lovely Inn, great location

4,8 sur septembre 02, 2017

We have stayed at the Riverdale Inn twice now and have really enjoyed our visits. The room was very nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast staff is always so pleasant and they always make me a fresh pot of decaf coffee. The dining room is just a nice place to sit and have breakfast and you are never rushed. It's in a wonderful neighborhood with lots of independent restaurants and the neighborhood is nice to walk around in. We will stay there again.

Our new go-to in Jacksonville

4,8 sur septembre 01, 2017

Our first trip to Jacksonville since our son has recently been stationed at the naval air station. Dilemma - where to stay. Based on a friend's recommendation we decided to stay in the Five Points/Avondale area and were not disappointed!

Wonderful and Beautiful place to stay.

5 sur août 25, 2017

Beautiful Inn. This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Riverdale Inn. Soft beds, quiet, and lovely. Breakfast was wonderful.

Charming Peace

5 sur août 21, 2017

This is my go to place when I stay in Jacksonville. I love the charm and comfort that Riverdale Inn has. The staff is so nice and efficient. I look forward to my next stay.

Great Stay at the Inn

4,8 sur août 16, 2017

We stayed in the main Inn this time and really enjoyed our room with the peach walls (they had a nice neutral bedspread, not the dark one pictured). The bathroom was really nice as it had natural light from a window. We were made to feel very welcome, and both mornings we had wonderful breakfasts and they always made me decaffeinated coffee! We really enjoyed our stay and will be back.

Lovely stay - wish we'd had more time!

5 sur août 12, 2017

Beautiful home in a charming neighborhood managed with impeccable attention to detail. You can tell the proprietors have both experience running a B&B and a love of doing it. The bed was comfortable and breakfast was excellent - loved the locally grown melon! Eric was genial and welcoming. We'll be back.

Everything was lovely, but costly

4,4 sur juillet 26, 2017

We had a great time, and everyone was lovely. The room was pretty, and clean, though the mattress was quite soft... the cost, though, for the room we were in, seems out of line.

We had a wonderful stay at the Riverdale Inn

4,6 sur juillet 24, 2017

We had a wonderful 3 day stay at the Riverdale Inn. We were there on business. Room 2 was large and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable. The room was air-conditioned using Split technology. Our hosts, Bob, Linda and Eric were very welcoming. Breakfast was served in a charming dining hall, on order, quickly, tasty, and fresh. I recommend the vegetarian omelet and pecan waffle. I hope to have a chance to stay there again. It is centrally located in the heart of 5-points, Riverside.

Beautifully kept home and perfect for the family. Felt completely at home - esp the way we were treated by our hosts. Highly recommend!

Unique Get Away

4,0 sur juillet 04, 2017

We stayed here after a business meeting in Jax and were very pleased with the location and uniqueness of this charming place. Great location for shopping and eating, especially seafood.

Happy Homecoming

5 sur juin 20, 2017

We know Jacksonville very well, and staying at the Riverdale Inn helped us to re-connect with our old neighborhood in the nicest way. Congenial hosts, comfortable room, delicious breakfast (you have to try the waffles!) - we were very pleased with the entire experience. So happy that this grand house is in loving hands.

Visiting Family

5 sur juin 12, 2017

We had the most wonderful stay at this delightful property. Everything about it was perfect and we certainly enjoyed our experience. Our last two visits to Jacksonsville we stayed in hotels, but this was so much better for us. We have family that lives close-by so will stay at Riverdale Inn again and often.

Love it!

4,4 sur juin 09, 2017

Love staying here. Everything was awesome, they even gave us a free upgrade since they weren't completely booked which was super nice of them. The only complaint we have was the particular room we stayed in smelled a little funny, but it's to be expected in a home of that age so it didn't bother us really.

Beautiful Historic B&B in the Heart of Jacksonville

5 sur mai 23, 2017

This was an awesome little stop while in Jacksonville for business. Conveniently located close to the 5 Points area, a short 3 block walk away, where there are lots of great restaurants, gastro pubs, and bars. The Inn itself was beautiful. We had a spacious room with a sitting area and fireplace, very comfortable bed and all of the amenities. This was perfect because we had friends come and visit while we were there so this was a great space to entertain. There are also several other areas around the house to sit and enjoy including front porches on both the main and second floors, plus another with a fire pit in back too to sit and enjoy the evenings. There is also a self-service honor bar downstairs for guests "open 24 hours". Another great area where we sat and enjoyed some wine with our friends before heading for 5 points for dinner and an evening out. The staff/owners were very friendly and welcoming and have done an excellent job of maintaining this beautiful old home in this historic area of Jacksonville and do a great job of taking care of their guests.

Perfect Stay

5 sur mai 15, 2017

Arrived in town a bit late due to traffic. A quick call and our room was ready and waiting with the lights on when we arrived after dinner. The beds are a slice of heaven. Had to work for a bit in the morning and flawless internet in the carriage house got me done fast and stress free. The owners are amazing individuals. This is our go to place to stay in Jacksonville hands down. No way anyone can compete.

Fabulous !

5 sur mai 11, 2017

Gorgeous, comfortable, historic, location! Our honeymoon was very special thanks to this marvelous bed and breakfast . Stay here. You will be more than happy you did!

lovely place

4,6 sur mai 04, 2017

Greetings, I had the opportunity to stay here for 2 days during a short visit to Jacksonville. The staff was super accommodating, from on-telephone questions answers and special requests prior to arriving throughout our stay. One morning we were even up too late to make breakfast and the team saw us and offered to make us some quick eggs and such -- which were both fabulous and well appreciated as we were famished from our site seeing the day before! Overall, I'd definitely stay again.

Our stay at Riverdale

5 sur mai 03, 2017

Just wanted to say what a wonderful place Riverdale Inn is. I stayed with my daughter for a concert and we had a great time. The room was great and the food was even better. We will be back next time we stay in Jacksonville.

In love!

5 sur avril 29, 2017

Good heavens! Riverdale Inn is just a wonderful and magical home away from home. 11 stunning rooms with period furniture, updated bathrooms and very comf beds. Multiple common areas for gathering with friends and family. A bar. A gorgeous dining room with cooked to order breakfast included. Ample free parking and one block from trendy bars, restaurants and shopping. Cannot wait to stay here again. It's all true...this really is a gem among gems!!

Beautiful house and location, large rooms

5 sur avril 20, 2017

Lovely, quiet place, near Jacksonville but not in the busy, business part of town, close to local attractions and restaurants. The rooms are large and tastefully furnished, in the period of the house, and the breakfasts are truly bountiful. The honor bar is a nice plus, too.

Delightful Stay in Jacksonville

5 sur avril 08, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riverdale Inn. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, the breakfast delicious and our host was very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful relaxing evening on the veranda watching the sunset and enjoyed a stroll along the river. We hope to have the opportunity to return again and stay at this wonderful inn.

Beautiful Inn in Great Location.

4,2 sur avril 04, 2017

This is the second time we have stayed here. Our room was in the old carriage house. It was quiet and had a very large bathroom with tub. You have your choice of breakfast and can eat it in the dining room, on the front porch or the back porch which is nice because coming from the North, we wanted to enjoy every ounce of sun. You are right at the river and Five Points at this inn so you have great walking. Down the street is the Cummer Museum with beautiful gardens and traveling exhibits. Do yourself a favor and stay at this inn and not at some hotel.

Perfect B&B... Warm Southern hospitality with wonderful cuisine!

4,8 sur mars 06, 2017

Warm Southern hospitality with wonderful cuisine located near a waterfront park and the Five Points area offering unique shops and restaurants . innskeepers aim to PLEASE with a made to order delicious breakfast.

Very Comfortable!

4,8 sur février 11, 2017

The room was so comfortable... And one couldn't ask for a tastier breakfast. I'll be back!

Wonderful Stay

4,2 sur février 01, 2017

Fantastic, nicely updated old manse. Friendly, and warm. Would much rather stay here than a hotel. Rooms are period furnished but there's no lack of modern amenities.

A comfortable stay in a charming Inn

4,2 sur janvier 25, 2017

The Riverdale Inn, located just minutes from the Cummer Museum and Gardens, exudes the charm of a 19th Century townhouse and although the noise from the street nearby is a bit irksome, the room, bed and bathroom are immensely comfortable. (I stayed in Room 5, St. John.) The staff and owners are incredibly friendly and the breakfast, without exception, always delicious.

Made our Christmas.

5 sur janvier 11, 2017

We love it here. Our third year staying here. And very excited to hear about the addition of mini fridges and coffee makers in the rooms! Can't wait til our next stay.

Charming Inn, Great Location

5 sur janvier 07, 2017

We stayed for 5 nights over New Years. The inn was charming and very clean. We stayed in the Windsor Room on the 3rd floor. Room was large, king size bed that slept so good. The bed had a pillow top on it and it was very plush. The bathroom was large, 2 person jetted tub, large walk in shower, with good water pressure. The room was very clean and comfortable. Just outside our room was a sitting area tucked away in a little nook with a comfortable couch and large chair where I would have coffee and read. Breakfast was very good each day. They have a menu where you have a choice, eggs, bacon, cheese grits, toast and fruit. Then there are several omelettes to choose from. Plain and blueberry pancakes. Plain of pecan waffles with bacon. Couple of days we shared omelettes and pancakes and waffles. They have oj and coffee that were very good also. The staff was great, they would engage in conversation and would help anyway they could. The location was great for us. The inn was within walking distance of the 5 points area. Shops, restaurants, grocery store etc. all around that area. Our favorite restaurant was Blacksheep. Great stay, would definitely go back!!!!!!

Quiet Hideaway close to the centre of town and restaurants

5 sur janvier 06, 2017

A great place to stay, with plenty of character. Good breakfast with lots of choices The hosts were very helpful and suggested places to visit and to eat. It is close to restaurants and shops in 5 Points -so very convenient.

Wonder Stay for New Year's

5 sur janvier 05, 2017

Fantastic property. Great location. Walked to everything...Publix, resturants, parks, and shops. Loved feeding the ducks at the park. Room was very spacious. Stayed in Gilmore-9. Will be back next time we are in Jax.

Spending time in historic Avondale/Riverside!

5 sur janvier 02, 2017

Our stay at the Riverdale Inn was everything we hoped it would be! We booked #3 Margarets Window for two nights. The room was bright, cheery and well appointed. The hosts were very friendly and made you feel like you were part of their family! The breakfast was outstanding both days! I would recommend staying here if you like to be walking distance to shopping and dining at Five Points. Also, take a driving tour of homes with historical charm in the area.......


5 sur décembre 29, 2016

This was our second visit to the Riverdale Inn and as before it was very relaxing. The staff is helpful but not overbearing. The rooms are very nice and the breakfast was delicious. The Inn is located in a quaint part of Jacksonville where you can walk to restaurants, bars, coffee shops and movie theater.

riverdale inn review

4,4 sur novembre 30, 2016

Building was beautiful and the breakfast had many choices and was great/ especially the waffles and pan cakes. Best of all, was the staff. Very friendly and knowledgeable about area.

Riverdale Inn - a delight!

5 sur novembre 25, 2016

Our stay at the Riverdale Inn last weekend was wonderful. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed, there is an onsite Pub and sitting room with fireplace and the outdoor spaces are lovely. The Inn is within 3 short blocks of a vibrant district called Five Points - great restaurants, bars and a nice park and museum all there! Publix and Starbucks are within 2 blocks as well. We loved it!

A Refuge after Surgery

5 sur octobre 29, 2016

My husband has had three eye surgeries in the Riverside area of Jacksonville. We have stayed at the Riverdale Inn after each one. It is the perfect place to stay when you need to be pampered, and especially when you feel under the weather. It is quiet, so he could rest, but in a safe area, so I could get out and roam around. The people were so kind, and helpful. The breakfast was very good, and there are so many places close by to eat lunch and dinner. This is the place we will return to whenever we need to stay in Jacksonville.

Awesome place to stay.

5 sur octobre 26, 2016

My wife and I went up to see a Jaguar game. We wanted to stay somewhere quiet and not too busy, but still close. Riverdale Inn was perfect. Just outside of all the hustle and bustle. The rooms where perfect size. The breakfast was great. The owners are awesome. Can't wait to go back.

Meeting our great-great niece and nephew

4,2 sur septembre 13, 2016

A quick visit to meet the newest members of our family.....the Inn was practically right around the corner from our great niece's home....next to a beautiful park...in a delightful neighborhood. The staff was gracious and it was 1,000 times better than a downtown , high rise hotel! Would highly recommend it as a wonderful alternative to a traditional hotel or motel!

Going to Jax? Strongly recommend!

3,8 sur septembre 03, 2016

Extremely convenient location to Riverdale / Avondale, the Cummer Museum, and St. Vincent's Hospital; downtown only five minutes away. Charming old house with well furnished rooms and a helpful, friendly staff.

Very enjoyable experience

5 sur août 27, 2016

My wife and I had the room with all the windows which added a sense of spaciousness. It was a very comfortable room. Don't trip on the slightly elevated threshold when entering the room. The fact that we will going back to Jacksonville twice in September and will be staying in this room 3 nights each time tells the story. ::

Just perfect!

5 sur août 24, 2016

We wanted a little weekend getaway and the Riverdale fit the bill! It was in a great location where we could walk to the museum and it was a short ride to the Florida Theater. Loved the room and the honor system bar. Breakfast was great, too!

Great Experience!!

5 sur août 24, 2016

I was greeted by Eric which explained all aspects of availability of my stay, very pleasant atmosphere. The room I enjoyed was on the 2nd floor "Margaret" great view and very comfortable bed. They have a stocked honor bar that we took advantage of. The Inn Keepers covered every need of their clients.

Charming place

4,4 sur juillet 28, 2016

My husband and I stayed here for an anniversary weekend. I was quite satisfied with my stay and especially enjoyed the breakfast. Our room was cozy and I felt very at home here.

Stayed a second night

5 sur juillet 19, 2016

My husband and I were in Jacksonville on business and liked the Riverdale so much that we decided to stay a second night. The rooms are spacious and clean but it also has a sense of history. The building is on the registery of historic places. It's a family run business and they obviously enjoy their work. The breakfasts were terrific and several nearby restaurants offer variety at a reasonable price. It's also just down the block from the Cummer, a fabulous art museum and very close to DT. It's also a quick drive to the beach.

Great place for an overnight

4,8 sur mai 15, 2016

This was a last minute idea and we could not have been more pleased. Everythign as top notch, food, rooms and location. We will be back.

Wonderful Historic Inn

Wonderful stay

Riverdale Bed and Breakfast

4,2 sur mars 09, 2016

Beautiful historic home very tastefully decorated with antique furniture yet very comfortable. Located walking distance to Museum, dining and shopping. Would definitely go back.

Delightful stay at a beautiful B&B in the quaint Riverside district.

5 sur mars 02, 2016

Sadly due to our schedules we could only stay 1 night at the Riverdale Inn. The rooms were beautiful and unique. It is conveniently located near dinning and parks. The breakfast in the morning was made to order delicious and the staff delightful. We would highly recommend if staying in the Jacksonville area.

Lovely B&B

3,2 sur février 24, 2016

My husband and I decided to take a last minute trip just to get away. Since we prefer a B&B, I searched for one in Jacksonville. This one did not disappoint. Great location, nice rooms, friendly staff. Totally enjoyed our stay, will definitely plan to return again.

Consistently Wonderful

5 sur février 15, 2016

We have been regular guests at Rivetdale Inn since it opened. I think we have stayed in almost every room on the property. The in is well located in a historic district that is interesting with diverse shopping and culinary opportunities within walking distance as well as a great museum, the owners and staff are friendly and welcoming, the decor is tasteful, interesting and attractive. The bedding and linens are exceptional, Breakfast us a made to order treat. Our grandchildren feel so at home thete they might curl up on the sofa by the fire with a book or play chess on the third floor. One wants to have a "Sweey Sixteen" party there, Obviously we hope to return often,

Convenient, attractive, and delicious

4,2 sur janvier 29, 2016

This Inn was very convenient for a stop off 95 while traveling, and we thought they had the best breakfast of any of the several B&Bs where we'd stayed for the past couple weeks. You get to choose and we had the blueberry pancakes and pecan waffles. Everyone was helpful and nice, and the room was lovely. Interesting old house.

Excellent for minivacation

4,4 sur janvier 20, 2016

We stayed in the Lancaster room and loved it. Spacious with a king size bed and easily accomidated my husbands sleep machine without needing special treatment or changes. Breakfast was yummy and satisfying while also being plated appealingly. Well worth every cent we paid and we will be returning any time we are in Jacksonville for any reason!

Wonderful stay for NYE and bowl game

5 sur janvier 06, 2016

My husband and I traveled to Jacksonville for the first time to go to the Taxslayer bowl game at Everbank Field. We have never been to JAX before, and we had no idea which area would be pleasant and fun to stay. We are both early thirties and like a low key night life, but a night life none the less. The area in which this B & B Is located was perfect with fantastic restaurants and low keys bars within walking distance or within 2 miles drive. It was perfect, and we found the Riverside area of JAX quaint and lovely to stay near the water. The B&B itself was the best one we have ever stayed in too. The home is historic and beautiful, and you can tell the owners pay attention to detail and care about the stay of their guests. This was seen in so many ways: the made to order breakfast which patrons order off a menu (delicious and large servings each morning with coffee, tea, and juices), the honor system bar, the tidying of rooms each morning and changing of sheets, the treats of cookies or banana bread set out in the main foyer, and overall the genial and generous nature of the owners. Compared to the older and more commercial feel of the downtown area, Riverside is the ideal spot for a pleasant stay and Riverdale Inn is unmatched.

Great Stay!

3,4 sur janvier 04, 2016

Wonderful, charming place. My wife and I loved it!!

Anniversary Stay

4,6 sur janvier 03, 2016

We had a great stay at the Riverside Inn. We loved the location, the river walk, the nearby Memorial Park, the local restaurants, and the area. The room was fresh, quiet, and comfortable. The owners were attentive to our requests for information on local sites and places to eat. Great place to kick back and relax.

Perfect location for a beautiful Bed and Breakfast

5 sur décembre 06, 2015

The family that owns this bed and breakfast are friendly and hospitable. The rooms were spacious and the size of the foyer and second floor landing which leads out to a porch made me wish I had more time to just sit outside on the front porch while I was there. It is within walking distance of Five Points which has restaurants and a beautiful riverfront park.

unexpectedly awesome

5 sur décembre 02, 2015

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay while visiting friends out in 5 points. The Riverdale Inn was the only place in the area, other than taking a taxi downtown. We were impressed with the first step into this beautiful old house. This is not a modern luxury hotel, but rather a historical home with quaint décor and a comfortable feel. They Inn has a bar, which we didn't use since we were meeting friends out. The room was also beautiful, with modern tv and cable. The best part of the night though was climbing into the bed equipped with silky smooth & comfortable sheets. I was like sleeping on a bed of butter. The next morning we woke in time for breakfast, which is typically food set out for self service, but not at the Riverdale, you choose from their delicious menu. My wife had the pecan waffle and I had the western omelet. Both were delicious and accompanied with crisp bacon. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit Jacksonville (my home town). At first I thought the prices were a bit high, but now I realize it is very affordable for what you get.

An absolute Gem

5 sur novembre 25, 2015

We discovered this place totally by chance. It popped up during an on-line search. WE WILL BE BACK! Every detail was perfect. The owners were great and so was the place. One block from the river too!

Like going home!

5 sur novembre 11, 2015

We had a one night stay for an event in Jax. We could not have asked for anything more: service was great, rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable, breakfast was awesome! We booked another stay before we even left!

Great Location and Great Breakfast

3,6 sur novembre 09, 2015

I typically use this Inn for overflow guests as I live in the area. This time we rented the two adjoining rooms in the cottage. These rooms are much smaller than I had expected and one of the toilets was not working properly. We arrived late, after happy hour, but were able to use the honor bar anyway. It had not been cleaned up after the other guests or bartender used it so we needed to maneuver our way around empty glassware; bottles; etc but had fun anyway. I would definitely recommend if you want to be in the Riverside area. My guests were AMAZED by the breakfast.Delicious and complete!

Perfect weekend!

5 sur novembre 02, 2015

Wonderful place, will definitely stay again

Wedding Delight

5 sur octobre 28, 2015

We were here for my daughters wedding. The wedding was held here and the reception as well. It was beautiful. The rooms are very nice. The chef was great. It is located close to a park. restaurants are within walking distance. I recommend the Inn to everyone.

Fantastic B/B close to some wonderful sections of Jacksonville.

4,6 sur octobre 22, 2015

My wife and I had a great time during a recent stay and would recommend it to anyone hoping for a get away. Wonderful house - the rooms are amazing and have been preserved through the years to maintain the grande and historic feel of the area i which the house was built. The service was great and the staff was warm and friendly!

Relaxing and Beautiful Inn

5 sur septembre 27, 2015

Excellent location, management, and cleanliness. Attention is great. Beautiful place stay, too bad we could not stay longer. I will stay there on my next visit.

A pleasure

4,6 sur septembre 07, 2015

My first stepe into the Riverdale Inn was a tranport back into an Late 1800's home. All aspects of staying at the Inn where relaxing. my stay was more than I had hope for. Treat yourself with a stay at The Riverdale Inn.

Perfect in Every Way!

5 sur septembre 04, 2015

We have stayed at Riverdale Inn regularly for thirteen years including many holidays because we have family in the area. We have never been disappointed in any aspect of our stay and now regard the entire staff as family. They have ceased to offer evening meals but their breakfasts are exceptional. The location is close to many interesting venues all within walking distance.

Riverdale Inn in Riverside Jacksonville FL

5 sur août 16, 2015

We have been guests at the Riverdale Inn on several occasions. Each time we have had an extremely enjoyable stay. We have stayed in five different rooms, each with its own unique personality. On our last visit in late July, we spent two nights in Shadowland, which was delightful with its king sized four poster bed. The entire inn is decorated in vintage, Victorian style furniture and decorative articles. The rooms are large and extremely well appointed. The Inn is in easy walking distance of Five Points with its fun shops and many excellent restaurants. Downtown Jacksonville and the football and soccer stadiums are close by, as well. If you enjoy the bed and breakfast experience and you are going to be visiting Jacksonville, I highly recommend the Riverdale Inn.

Another great stay

5 sur juillet 29, 2015

We stay at Riverdale Inn frequently ... every visit is consistently perfect.

One of the very best B&B's we've visited

5 sur juin 09, 2015

I travel to Jacksonville regularly for business. I found this place, only two blocks from my client's office, in February. I stayed a week in February, and then again the week of May 24-29. This time I brought my wife, who enjoyed the Cummer Museum, the Riverfront Memorial Park and great dining options all within a few blocks. The guest rooms, the staff, the breakfasts and even the "honor system" Full Bar are second to none. They go all out to make even a mundane business trip a memorable occasion. We look forward to returning soon.

Southern charm and architecture at its best

5 sur mai 28, 2015

The Riverdale Inn has been meticulously and beautifully restored to reflect its former grandeur. Just steps away from Memorial Park on the St. John"s River and Five Points shopping area. It reminds me of Savannah, Ga. Plan to go back soon. Virginia Moylan

Love the Riverdale

5 sur mai 17, 2015

This was our first stay in a Bed & Breakfast and we were a little concerned that it wouldn't be our style. But the Riverdale Inn is perfect. The owners were very friendly and helpful but not over bearing. It s walking distance from a lot of good restaurants. Our room was beautiful and worked out great to have our kids stop by for Christmas. Breakfast was always delicious. We will definitely stay again and recommend it to our friends.

Charming and comfortable

The Riverdale Inn is charming, comfortable and quaint. The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and quiet.

I highly recommend the Riverdale Inn.

Excellent owner runs a top-notch B&B

5 sur avril 26, 2015

With a last minute change made to our reservation that resulted in our arriving three days early, we arrrived to smiling and gracious owners late at night. The next morning at 7 a.m. (we had a business meeting to get to) they were there, in the lobby, to greet us with more smiles, then prepared breakfast-to-order -- it was excellent. The staff the owners have onsite are just as accommodating and helpful!

Wunderschönes Haus, nette Besitzer, gutes Frühstück

location location location

3,4 sur avril 10, 2015

The most ideal attribute of Riverdale Inn is the Riverside location with yuppie Avondale strip on St. John and bohemian 5 Points on Park. You should absolutely stay there when in Jacksonville. Enough can't be said about the evolution of this district, and this BnB is around the corner from 5 Points: an eclectic, funky, bohemian strip with botiques, good restaurants, funky watering holes, and a cultural feel more indicative of SF (we live in the Bay Area) than Jax. Eat at Black Sheep restaurant on Margaret, but just go on opentable.com for more good restaurants fit for foodies (Brick, Peles, Hawkers, Blind Rabbit, Kick Backs, Taverna, Bistro X). Riverdale Inn is a stately, quaint Victorian mansion, but it could use a facelift--just a bit of cosmetics, i.e. paint job, walls in room had some dings, etc. It's next to a beautiful park on the St. John's River, Memorial Park, and just down the street from a decent farmers market, art fair, live bands under Fuller Warren Bridge called Riverside Arts Market. The married couple/owners are very friendly and accommodating; they gave us a late check out. Breakfast was adequate but friendly and prompt. If you're in Jacksonville, this BnB is definitely worth a stay, and in a great district (really the only happening one in the city other than the beaches). Jax is also turning into a craft beer hot spot for Florida: Bold City, Intuition and Aardwolf are all excellent beers with cool tap rooms. Choose Ardwolf across the bridge in San Marco if you have to choose only one to visit. Jacksonville will continue to evolve--the owner of the Jaguars wants to poor billions into downtown--lets hope the city can come together for that. Riverside, the beaches, Ponte Vedra resort (Sawgrass) and St. Augustine (quaint historical gem) 30 minutes under Jax Beach, are all worth checking out. St. Augustine is even a destination.

Here for Concours D'Elegance. This applied to the Riverdale Inn. Family business, with quality values and elegant surroundings.

Our trip to Mayo Clinic

4,4 sur mars 22, 2015

My husband and I made a journey to Mayo Clinic enjoyable by selecting the Riverside Inn rather than an Hotel. The setting was lovely, the Inn was immaculate from the grounds to the furnishings, and the staff was delightful. We would definitely stay there again!

Had My Grandmother's Memorial Here

5 sur mars 02, 2015

It was a lovely send off, they cathered to our every need and I loved my stay there. the food was delicious. My family from out of town that stayed there loved it and family that came from out of town just for the service was so comfortable. I will stay again but not on the third floor those stairs are a killer lol.

Downtown Jacksonville Gem!

5 sur février 17, 2015

Riverdale Inn provided us with a marvelous one-night stay on February 1, 2015. the Shadowlawn Room was impeccably appointed, sparkling clean and perfectly situated for a quiet respite before our Monday morning departure. we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast, perfectly prepareds and cheerfully served. We would look for almost any excuse to return to the Riverdale Inn.

The most dog-friendly Inn!

5 sur février 09, 2015

Very small dog friendly, lovely accommodations (the carriage house is best for furry friends) and terrific breakfast. Bill and Bob, Pittsburgh, PA

Welcoming and Comfortable Stay

4,8 sur février 05, 2015

My wife and I needed a place to spend two nights while our daughter was moving into an apartment in the Riverside area. The convenience and ambience of a B&B appealed to us, so we booked a room at the last minute. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The room was quiet and well maintained. The owners are friendly and helpful and available. The inn is located in proximity to shops and restaurants in the Riverside area, so we were able to walk to dinner and explore the area without a car. This was such a better experience than staying in a generic motel room, and the breakfast was fantastic both days. We plan on coming back.

Very nice stay!

5 sur février 03, 2015

Nice quiet stay at a pleasant B&B. Staff and amenities are great. Breakfast was excellent. Also just down the street found a little cuban bistro fro dinner. Need to check it out. Will stay again!

Outstanding location in the heart of Jacksonville

4,2 sur janvier 09, 2015

We recently spent a couple of days at the Riverdale Inn. The staff was warm and welcoming. The breakfast each morning was wonderful (cook to order in just minutes)! The location was outstanding! Just a block away from the Inn is Memorial Park, which offered us a great view on the St. John's River, and right off Margaret Street were wonderful high quality restaurants, including one with a roof top view. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Quaint Carriage House

4,0 sur décembre 04, 2014

We returned to Riverdale Inn this year because we had such a lovely experience last year when we came through Jacksonville. Once again we stayed in the quaint detached carriage house. Very nice! We love Riverdale because the staff is so friendly, the house is gorgeous, and it is within walking distance to excellent restaurants and bars. We've already made our reservations for next year!

Cozy, charming and friendly.

4,8 sur novembre 25, 2014

Beautiful, nice location. The staff was so friendly. Would stay there again. Breakfast was great. Thank You!


3,4 sur novembre 23, 2014

Great location with friendly owners and a great breakfast. Our room in carriage house was OK but would have liked main house. My fault as you get what you pay for.


5 sur novembre 17, 2014

If I ever get to Jacksonville again I will stay at the Riverdale Inn. It was like a home away from home except we were treated like royalty. I spent quite a bit of time on the second floor balcony enjoying the fresh air and people watching.

A Great Experience

5 sur novembre 12, 2014

I have always been a little hesitant about staying at a bed and breakfast, but that certainly changed with our experience at Riverdale Inn. We have been married for 35 years and the weekend we stayed was the anniversary of our first date (37 years ago). We stayed in the Park Suite, which was beautiful. The whole inn was beautiful. Everyone was very gracious and accommodating from the time we entered the inn-until we left. The breakfast was great (you can choose from their menu) and the staff was so friendly (we really liked the wonderful lady who would clean our room everyday-so kind and friendly). Riverdale Inn is in a great location, with restaurants and shopping right around the corner. This was a wonderful first time experience for a bed and breakfast and we would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Wonderful Weekend

5 sur octobre 30, 2014

Everyone at Riverdale was so warm and friendly that we felt like family. The Inn was very clean and very comfortable. The cooked to order breakfast was delicious. We loved being able walk everywhere. Bob and Eric offered us great dining and exploring recommendations. We will definitely return to the Riverdale Inn.

Beautiful BnB in a great location

4,4 sur octobre 20, 2014

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at this BnB. It's located right near 5 points and the Riverwalk, 5 minutes from downtown and within minutes from everything from grocery stores to an art theater to bars. The staff were friendly and did everything right, and the breakfast was really nice. I'd definitely stay again.

A place that you will not forget!

4,4 sur octobre 19, 2014

You will treasure your memories from staying at Riverdale Inn. All the rooms are warm and cozy. All the staff are very friendly.

Great location near Cummer Museum, pretty rooms and lovely B & B.

Short but Sweet

4,8 sur août 10, 2014

We were only there one night so the stay was short but sweet. I had reserved a room with twin beds but when I looked at the photo ahead of time, it only showed one bed. When I asked about this discrepancy, Bob moved us to another room with two beds, so I appreciated the way he handled it even though it was not his fault. The Riverdale Inn is located in a very nice neighborhood with restaurants nearby and close to the river. The Inn is old but very well preserved and the room are charming. Service was excellent and breakfast was good. We would recommend this Inn highly.

Quaint and charming B&B

4,8 sur août 08, 2014

This was our first stay in a B&B and wow!!!, it was fantastic. Your innkeepers, Bob and Linda, were wonderful,they make you feel so welcomed. Bob will offer up some history of the building while serving you a drink and Linda is up early with a good cup of coffee and breakfast. Our room was so quaint, comfortable bed, very clean room. Updated bathroom with plenty of hot water. Great location, near old Jacksonville downtown area. Within walking distance to restaurants, bars, shops and just good old site seeing. Looking forward to my next stay.

Great Place!

5 sur août 02, 2014

We stayed in the Shadowlawn room and enjoyed our entire experience. The owners were warm and friendly and more than willing to help us with any and everything. Our room was clean, roomy and very attractive. We will definitely stay there again!

Nice weekend

3,8 sur juillet 23, 2014

The Tub and shower should have a safety bar on the side wall for easy entry. Not just the thin plastic bar low on the inter wall. This is the 1st B and B that that we have visited that did not have tea and or coffee available during the day. There was a coffee .pot on a shelf in the room but nothing provided for its use.. The Inn is in a very good location making it easy to visit the museum and other local places. The bed and pillows were excellent . Unit 10 is a very easy unit for people that have problems with stairs as we parked just outside the door to the unit.

Beautiful and Romantic B&B

4,4 sur juin 03, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding night and it was so romantic and lovely! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The room was immaculate and had an incredible bathroom with a 2-person jacuzzi tub. It is also just one block from the beautiful Memorial Park and river and just walking distance from the shops and restaurants in historic 5-Points. We loved everything about our stay!!

Excellent B & B

5 sur mai 27, 2014

My wife & myself stayed here last week. The owners & their family made sure that our stay was excellent. The Breakfast's are fantastic. Rooms very spacious & clean. Great locateion with good restaurants within walking distance. Sure beats staying in a Hotel when travelling to Jacksonville, FL. You will not be disappointed Lyle S.

Ourr stay in Riverdale Inn

5 sur mai 26, 2014

The inn is located near interesting shopping by walking to 5 points and a lovely park on the St. Johns River. The room was lovely with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The staff was most accommodating and made provisions for us to have tea when returned after 10:00 P.M. Breakfast was tasty. We will definitely return.

Best Place to stay in Jacksonville - this liitle enclave knows what southern hospitality really means

5 sur mai 19, 2014

Riverdale Inn provides clean and comfort all wrapped up with a large helping of Southern hospitality - the beds are cozy and xomfortable in all of the rooms and I think I have actually stayed in all of them since I started staying there in 2010. I have to travel to jacksonville for business very often and would not stay any where else


4,8 sur mai 19, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for a little getaway from the craziness. It was just what we needed. Very quaint and relaxing atmosphere. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were really charming. Would recommend.

First time at a B & B

5 sur mai 09, 2014

My husband and I spent our 29th anniversary at the inn. It was our first B & B experience and we would definetly go again. It was lovely and well maintained. The owners knew the area and made recommendations w/n walking distance. The pub was cozy and inviting and despite the rainy weather we had a wonderful weekend.

With wife on both business and pleasure

5 sur mars 26, 2014

We were scheduled for one night, but loved it so much we stayed a second night. Both the front and back porches provided a great, peaceful place to sit outdoors and talk. Lot's of restaurants and shops with in walking distance, Memorial Park is a block away, the room we stayed in was awesome, the staff supper friendly and helpful!

Nice Getaway!

This B&B was close enough to home and within walking distance to nice shops and restaurants. The room was spacious and clean and the breakfast was yummy! I would stay here again.

Anniversary weekend

5 sur mars 19, 2014

We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend at the Inn. The family staff was so friendly, sharing historical facts on the Inn, great rooms, wonderful breakfast, and great bar. Grab a nitecap and sit out on back porch by the fire pit. Great areas to explore - Riverside, downtown and San Marco are so close. Take bikes and check out the riverside arts festival each Saturday..just down the street. Would definitely stay again!

Nice and Comfortable

3,6 sur mars 13, 2014

The owner Bob was really wonderful, he made us feel really at home. I really liked the honor bar. The porch was really nice, I could have set out there all day!


3,0 sur mars 10, 2014

The home was very nice and clean. I loved the porch and tree lined streets. It is a great location for downtown activities and walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The only complaint I had was breakfast. I felt no real compassion or understanding of my dietary needs. I emailed prior to my visit regarding my disease and there was no response. During breakfast, I was not given the consideration I needed to feel safe about eating the food provided.

A True Gem! Best of the Best Bed & Breakfast!

4,8 sur mars 02, 2014

My husband and I spent two glorious nights in the Windsor Suite and one great night in the Petite Lancaster (which is located in a separate house in back of the main building.) The owners and staff are extremely kind and accommodating. The lobby has a sitting room decorated with rows of books, a comfy couch and an electric fireplace. The dining room is large and lovely decorated. The breakfast is very good and served to order (I recommend the veggie omelet.) The back of the first floor has a fully stocked "honor system" bar. You pour your drink and write down what you had and the staff add your drinks to your bill. The rooms are stunning and each are very unique. The whirlpool tub in the Windsor Suite was amazing. We must have taken 10 baths in two days! The beds and decor are comfortable, tasteful and create an intimate environment. Highly recommended for honeymooners or couples looking for a romantic getaway. Please note: the Windsor Suite is on the third floor and there is no elevator. The second floor has on outdoor balcony (available to all guests) and several bookcases full of books of all topics. There is a outdoor back deck where guests can grill food or simply sit and relax. The Lancaster room was lovely, although more modest than the Windsor Suite. The room is on the first floor and is located in the house behind the main building. Every room has two comfy bathrobes and plush towels, as well as high quality Riverdale Inn toiletries. The location is in walking distance of a large supermarket, a natural market with great food, the Riverdale Arts Market (every Saturday morning), the Museum and Gardens, two large parks, a historical cinema, a rooftop lounge and various other shops. Staying at the Riverdale Inn is an experience in of itself. You will never want to stay in a "chain hotel" ever again.

Always consistant

3,4 sur janvier 30, 2014

Having stayed numerous times at the Riverdale Inn my expectations have already been set high, and this trip was equally good. Access to ones choice of a night cap, or two, from the bar, on the honor system can be very convenient and welcome.

Wonderful place, wonderful people!!

5 sur janvier 04, 2014

To Bob and Company: Thank you so much! My husband and I were in town over Christmas for his surgery... it was a stressful time for both of us. The entire staff of Riverdale Inn was incredible! They made us feel at home, at ease, and, while Jim was in the hospital, I felt completely secure. They went well above and beyond to accommodate us and make our stay as pleasant as humanly possible. As an extra bonus, the property is magnificent... well maintained, spotless, and perfectly located. Again, thank you very much!!! Jim & Allison Brown

Christmas 2013

5 sur décembre 20, 2013

This is the third time I have stayed at the Inn on Riverside as I like to call it. Each time I have had a different room and none of them disappointed. Our whole group has been there the past two times and we were treated with such warm hospitality. We all felt like we were in our own home as we sat around the fire place, exchanged gifts among ourselves, and sang Christmas Carols. The breakfasts are cooked to order and there is always hot coffee and juice awaiting you when you come down the stairs. The Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas making our time there all the more enjoyable. A special dinner was prepared for our group by the Chef and it was OUTSTANDING!!! Appetizers of warm brie with honey and pecans covering the top, fried shrimp, Prime Rib cooked to perfection, roasted potatoes, asparagus with pecans and goat cheese, fish, a marvelous salad and "to die for " deserts. Two berry cobbler and Bananas Foster over vanilla ice cream. What a night! Treat yourselves and stay there when in Jacksonville. But leave a room for me. Kathie M

A wonderful time in JAX

4,6 sur décembre 19, 2013

The Riverdale Inn provided such a wonderful experience over the two nights I stayed there. The first night I stayed in the carriage house with twin beds and a large bathroom. The second night I stayed in the mansion on the second floor with a king sized bed. Both nights were quiet and peaceful with comfortable bedding and an elegant and clean room outfitted with beautiful antiques. The breakfast is delicious! You can't go wrong with amynorder. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends and family.

Our stay at the Inn was comfortable and charming. It was overThanksgiving weekend and a fire was lit in the fire place and the breakfasts we're delish. We stayed in Margaret's Room and although small met our needs. Owners were friendly and we felt very welcome.

Wonderful place to stay, been here multiple times.

4,2 sur décembre 02, 2013

Stayed in the Carriage House last time which is more modern than the rest of the inn. We've stayed in most rooms and always enjoys the old ambiance, furnishings, game boards and books to read. The Roosevelt is something of a favorite. Linda and her sister Caroline always make you feel welcome. No dinner options but breakfast is always tasty.

Wow! When in Jacksonville, no other place will do!

The staff was very accommodating for early check in and helpful with area attractions and nightlife which were all within walking distance. The atmosphere of the grounds, room and common area were beyond my expectations. The rooms are well kept and comfortable and very relaxing.

A weekend at Riverdale Inn

4,6 sur octobre 26, 2013

I took my husband to Riverdale Inn in Jacksonville for weekend birthday getaway using the Living Social coupon. The inn is a beautiful historic home that is run by a family. All of them were very friendly (even the dog, "Gracie") and aimed to please. When we arrived late afternoon/early evening, several people were in the small pub in the inn, but we didn't want to drink an alcoholic drink at that time so we asked about an alternate and were served iced coffee at no charge. Our room was quite spacious (as were a couple of the other rooms that we peaked into) with a writing desk, a small table and chairs, and a window seat. We've been to many a B&B and have suffered through some rooms that were so cramped that there was only a small walkway around the bed, so the rooms here were a real delight. They serve a full breakfast and even give you a choice of items - omelets, eggs any way you like, or a non-egg dish, such as waffles or pancakes. This was accompanied by bacon or sausage, toast, grits, and a fresh fruit cup. The Inn is in a wonderful section of town, right near the St. John's river and only a couple of blocks away from the Cummer Museum, the Memorial Park, and the 5 points area. We walked to several places, including some great restaurants in the 5 points locale. I would highly recommend the inn to anyone. The day we were leaving Jacksonville we saw a newspaper magazine with the "Best of Jacksonville" and wouldn't you know it, the Riverdale was ranked #1 B&B.

A great get away by the heart of Jacksonville

5 sur octobre 09, 2013

Very comfortable inn. Famoulous breakfast that makes you feel like royality. Lots of local activities within walking distance-museums, shops, restaurants. We brought bikes to visit local breweries and an Octoberfest in the nearby park. We also brought our boat to view city from the St. John's. Very close boat ramp across the bridge.

Great B&B in Historic Neighborhood in Jacksonville

4,4 sur octobre 02, 2013

Riverdale Inn, a former mansion in the historic Riverside area, is a good choice for a place to stay when in Jacksonville. The neighborhood is charming and walkable, with plenty of restaurants and shops, the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, and the Saturday Riverside Arts Market under the Fuller Warren Bridge all nearby. The rooms are distinctive and well decorated with up-to-date amenities, the front desk service is friendly and helpful, the made-to-order complimentary breakfasts are very good, and the small pub is delightful. All-in-all, a good experience!


5 sur septembre 26, 2013

This B&B is beautiful from the warm greeting from Linda(Innkeeper) to the fawn farewell. Breakfast was made to order, I had the veggie omelet .The bed was to die for, I want one. You can walk to the beautiful St Johns River, restaurants and shopping.

Lovely Inn - a must in Jacksonville!

5 sur septembre 09, 2013

The Riverdale is a wonderful B & B on the west side of Jacksonville. Each room has it's own theme and lovely décor with attention to every detail, fresh and clean. The Inn itself is a very large Victorian home with large downstairs rooms and porches accessible to all; there is even a bar and flat screen tv! The service and staff were superb; a hot cooked breakfast delicious and gracious with mountains of Southern charm. For the $$ the Riverdale Inn beats any upscale hotel chain by a mile! I will definitely return when my travels take me anywhere in the Jacksonville area.

Enjoyable Bed and Breakfast Experience

My husband and I recently stayed at Riverdale for two nights. The Inn's rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly. The breakfast was good and cooked to order. We had a credit at the bar, which was based on an honor system and very convenient. We found plenty of dining options within walking distance and more within a short drive's distance. There is a museum within walking distance as well as a park on the river. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Riverdale Inn, fantastic Bed and Breakfast

5 sur juillet 06, 2013

The Riverdale Inn was a fantastic place to stay. My girlfriend and I were on a trip from Pennsylvania and we could not have been more pleased with how clean and beautiful the property was, how kind and helpful the staff was, and how comfortable our room was. The breakfasts every morning were fantastic, the Inn is located within reasonable walking distance of many places to eat in Downtown Jacksonville. My girlfriend and I also loved the fact that the bar in the Inn worked on the honor system if there was no bartender working at night, you simply wrote down what you took and were charged for it. I cannot say enough about the kind service at the Riverdale Inn and I can't wait to stay there again in the future.

Delightful place to stay in Jax!

Weekday getaway

5 sur mai 19, 2013

We had a lovely time at the Riverdale Inn. It's a beautiful B&B that I found on the Livingsocial website. My husband and I just wanted to relax a bit, but not travel too far and stumbled upon this place. The staff were very nice and friendly, the room was great and the location was even better. There are lots of restaurants, bars and a waterfront park all within walking distance. The beach was nice too. It's probably about a 30 min drive or so from the Inn but it was worth it. When we came back the bed had been made and fresh towels had been put out, which I was not expecting. The breakfast in the morning was very good too with lots of options. I liked that it wasn't like a normal hotel breakfast, which can be disappointing. They had omelets, bacon, fresh blueberry pancakes all made to order. Delicious! I will definitely be coming back to stay!

Beautiful location & accommodations

We loved our stay at Riverdale Inn. The relaxed atmosphere made us feel so welcome in this vintage B&B. Our room was beautiful, and the food was excellent.

This Inn is very large and historic. The area is beautiful, nestled in historic Jacksonville, right next to the St. John's River. The Inn is immaculate, professionally cleaned. The vacant rooms are left open and we enjoyed looking around. There is a fully stocked bar on the back of the Inn, which was wonderful and convenient. If we come to Jacksonville again, this is the only place we will stay. Jeanna Bryan

Delightful B&B

We stayed in the Park suite for a weekend. It is a beautiful suite, very comfortable and it gave us the R&R we were looking for. Chef Eric is honing his culinary skills with some imaginative dishes, would just like a little more variety, however food was excellent. Overall everyone helped make our stay wonderful. We hope to go again.

Great night's stay

4,8 sur mars 13, 2013

We stayed here last Friday night, March 8. We arrived a little late because of flight delays but the owner was kind and flexible. We were in the Bishop Gate room, which was beautiful and cozy. Great location near Memorial Park and Five Points. Excellent breakfast, prepared by Eric. This is a beautiful home in a beautiful neighborhood. We recommend it.

A memorable stay!

My husband and I wanted to be in the Riverside/Avondale area for our five nights in Jacksonville and Riverdale Inn is a lovely accomodation there. Our suite at the Inn was spacious, with a sitting area, great storage, a remodeled bathroom. The housekeeping standard was excellent and the bed and bath lines all luxurious. The staff was friendly and helpful and the made-to-order breakfasts were outstanding. On future visits to Jacksonville we will definitely plan to return to this quality B and B.

A weekend getaway

4,8 sur mars 05, 2013

My husband surprised me with this weekend getaway. He also reserved a place for us at the Saturday evening dinner which was superb. The breakfast each morning was a full meal prepared for each individual's order. It was delicious. The well stocked bar in the back was a delight. This family runned business is a welcomed addition to our personal contacts.

Great getaway

4,6 sur mars 04, 2013

I was pleasantly pleased with my stay the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable all around wonderful getaway

Loved staying here!

3,8 sur mars 01, 2013

My boyfriend and I spent Valentine's day here, and I absolutely loved it. We stayed in the Windsor suite and enjoyed relaxing in the two-person jacuzzi. I also enjoyed looking out the window from the seating area on the third floor. There is a beautiful view of the down-town skyline. As for the staff, they were extremely kind and warm. The breakfast was okay, basic but tasty. He had pancakes, while I had a vegetarian omelet. The location of Riverdale Inn is great! We were able to have a lovely dinner in the San Marco area, which is less than 15 minutes away. I wish we had time to walk around the Riverside area... It seemed nice and quaint.


5 sur décembre 26, 2012

We had a wonderful stay at the Riverdale Inn! The hosts were very nice and our room was perfect! We enjoyed the location next to the park and breakfast was amazing. Kuddos to the inn keepers! We will be back! Kym and Scott Papp

Felt at home at Riverdale Inn

4,8 sur décembre 21, 2012

As a State of Florida employee and public health advocate, I wanted to stay at a hotel that would support the local economy, be smoke-free, and be within walking distance of restaurants and parks -- all while staying within state pricing guidelines. Riverdale Inn satisfied all these requirements and more. I felt welcomed and comfortable from the moment I arrived. Breakfast was so awesome I took a picture of my plate! I was able to check office and home email from the Gum Bunch Pub as well as from my room. Beautiful river-front Memorial Park is a short walk away, as is the Five Points shopping district with many locally owned restaurants. (For dinner, I walked to Al's Pizza on Margaret Street, where I had a reasonably priced personal pizza, salad, and glass of vino.) History buffs will love this house, built around 1901-1906. I recommend families consider booking the two rooms in the old carriage house. The Petite Lancaster (where I stayed) has two twin beds; the connecting Lancaster has a king bed and a sitting area. Can't say enough good things about the staff (especially Eric and Carolyn): More like family welcoming a traveling cousin than a business accepting a new customer. I hope to be back with my family for a weekend vacation!

Great location, loved the Park Suite

4,4 sur septembre 06, 2012

Clean, inviting inn a very short walk from the restaurants and shops of Five Points and Memorial Park. Enjoyed conversing with Bob, the owner, in the inn's little bar. Overall great stay!

Comfortable room and great location; skip the breakfast

3,6 sur août 06, 2012

I love to stay in Bed and Breakfast Inns whenever I travel for business or pleasure. My room was comfortable and peaceful. I rested well. However, compared to other inns of similar quality, the breakfast was disappointing. The coffee was stale and the bacon seemed microwaved. The melon balls were slick, like they had been cut the previous day and been allowed to sit in the refrigerator all night. The cheese omelet was bland and I didn't touch the toast. It seems that with a little effort in the breakfast offerings, they could make this inn outstanding. I would visit this inn again. However, I would not recommend this inn as a special place to celebrate an anniversary or honeymoon. Too many other inns do it better.

Warm and Welcoming

5 sur juillet 28, 2012

We felt completely at home. The room was well appointed, bed was very comfortable, and the breakfast was outstanding. Close to shopping. Shaded parking. Nice neighborhood. We are planning to come back next year.

Riverdale Inn Lancaster/Petite Lancaster

5 sur juillet 23, 2012

Had a wedding weekend...wished we had reason to use for more than a night! Absolutely lovely and quiet! Nice area of town...nice size, clean, comfortable! Precious cottage atmosphere.

June 2012 Stay

4,8 sur juillet 06, 2012

The rooms were neat and clean. The service was outstanding and the food was amazing. Will absolutely stay here again when we go back to Jacksonville.

Robert's stay at Riverdale

5 sur juillet 04, 2012

I recently stayed at the Riverdale Inn for four nights. My room was spacious and comfortable. The bed and breakfast accommodations were quite nice. Just outside my room was an upstairs porch that was very relaxing. The breakfast tasted great and was enjoyed in a home-like atmosphere. This was a wonderful experience that I would highly recommend to all of my friends and family. Thanks.

Awesome Place

5 sur juin 19, 2012

Went here for my 2y with my gf. We both loved it. Place was beautiful and we loved our room. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. Lots of restaurants/bars in the area. Also very quiet. Recommend it to anyone.

Old World Gracious B & B

4,2 sur juin 08, 2012

We knew this inn from the days when their wine bar was opened to the public and they served upscale meals to the public. Those days are gone but this trip we spent the night. The Inn is very large, full of antiques and filled with light. The back bedroom we stayed at was very quiet. In the heart of Riverside, guests can walk to the Cummer Museum, restaurants, bars and shops as well as enjoy the St Johns river via a park and riverwalk. Innkeepers very friendly and accomodating.

Nice Spot/Just what we were looking for

4,8 sur mai 15, 2012

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night. It was very clean and the room was comfortable. We would have liked a mini fridge in the room, but it wasn't a big deal. The wedding caterer had sent us home with some food that we weren't able to keep without refrigeration. Both the bedroom and bathroom had plenty of space and were decorated nicely. We had a pleasant experience with the online booking feature and checking in/out.

Wonderful Inn

4,8 sur avril 28, 2012

My husband and I really enjoyed this old home it was spectacular and the bed was extremly comfortable and the room was so quaint. Wish we could have stayed another night.

Great B&B for a night's stay

5 sur avril 19, 2012

My wife and I came over to Jacksonville for a night. The Riverdale is in a great location so we chose to stay here versus our usual place at the beach. Great choice. The area around the B&B (Five Points) has some neat places to check out. The food at the local restaurants is exceptional and there is a lot in close. The room was a perfect size for us. Overall the B&B was very comfortable and clean. We will definitely be back.

Loved the Riverdale

5 sur mars 28, 2012

Great location, friendly staff, delicious food, and beautiful rooms and decor.

Well worth the money.

4,6 sur mars 18, 2012

Linda and Carolyn were wonderful hosts. We enjoyed our stay very much. The Inn is beautiful.

great inn and food

5 sur mars 14, 2012

The inn was beautiful and th food fantastic. The neighborhood was lovely and walking distance to a great art museum and gardens.

Absolutely Wonderful

5 sur mars 14, 2012

I loved this place!! First time at a B&B and I have been converted! The rooms were impeccable, fresh towels everyday, plus the wonderful attitudes of the hosts and cooks. The house itself is a beautiful historic home that has been updated to include all modern-day amenities. Internet was available in every part of the house as well as cell phone signal. They have a little bar area downstairs which was always stocked, plus a parlor with books, magazines and games. The beds were heavenly as well as the jacuzzi tub. If I am ever in Jacksonville again I wil be sure to stay here, everything we wanted to do and see was no more than 5-10 minutes away.

Outstanding B&B

3,6 sur mars 07, 2012

wonderful B&B; we recommend it to everyone! the ambiance and furnishings, of the Inn are fabulous. Breakfast was out of this world. We would come back any time. We would have liked to know more history of the Inn other than the brief statement on your web site. I recommend you make it available, as it certainly will be interesting. Alleen and Tony

Celebration of Father's 80th Birthday

5 sur février 24, 2012

Linda, Carolyn, Bob, and Eric are welcoming, good energy people that cater to your every need. The rooms were all perfect. The many porches were great to gather and/or escape to relax, enjoy morning coffee or afternoon drink. The library-gameroom is warm and comfortable. Yummy breakfast too. Convenient, walk anywhere location. Enjoyed!!

Delightful Downtown Jax

3,4 sur février 22, 2012

The VERY nice breakfasts made our stay in Jacksonville the high light of our two day visit at the Riverdale Inn.

Amazing place, like a time capsule

4,8 sur février 20, 2012

I stay in this bed n breakfast at least once a year and I LIVE IN JACKSONVILLE. It's literally 10 minutes from my home, but if I need a little spoiling or find a new lady in my life and we need a get away from the world, THIS is the place.

They set the bar high

4,4 sur février 15, 2012

This was my and my boyfriend's 1st experience at a bed and breakfast. It was amazing. The food was great, the room and rest of the inn was clean and cozy and the service was fantastic. There was a grocery store, restaraunts, park, museum and the water within steps of the inn. We look forward to returning.

Special birthday trip

4,8 sur janvier 26, 2012

The Riverdale Inn is beautiful and only a short walk to great views of the St. Johns River. We stayed 4 days/3nights and it wasn't long enough to see and do everything we wanted to. Linda and Carolyn were perfect hostesses, and we didn't want for a thing. Breakfast and High tea were both excellent. Unfortunately the Row Restaurant was closed, I would look forward to eating there. It was the best birthday ever. The beds are very comfy. The Inn is convenient to many good shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to everyone.

Fantastic alternative to mediocre downtown hotels.

5 sur janvier 21, 2012

Comfortable bed, comfortable room, friendly hosts. About 1 mile from downtown, beautiful older neighborhood, safe, convenient.


5 sur décembre 31, 2011

Everything was EXCELLENT! We hope to come again. It was a first time in a bed and breakfast and we LOVED it! Thanks, Riverdale Inn!


3,8 sur décembre 25, 2011

Wonderful place, great location, delicious breakfast that offers real value, lovely rooms.

Beautiful place; you feel like you're at home here :)

5 sur décembre 14, 2011

I live in the riverside area of Jacksonville so I have my family and friends stay here when they come to visit me. Everyone I have sent here had loved it! The house is gorgeous and the staff is so friendly and accommodating! The rooms are all so cute and there is a room or conjoined rooms to fit every situation. It is in a perfect location; only a couple houses from the river and a few blocks from the best shopping and restaurants. Highly recommended by myself and my family.

October stay at Riverdale Inn

5 sur octobre 27, 2011

We stayed at tge Riverdale Inn from 10/8/2011 to 10/11/2011. It was our third time stating at the Riverdale Inn. Dining, Room, Staff and location where outstanding. My wife and I will be back.

October Getaway

3,2 sur octobre 25, 2011

Charming Victorian home that the owners have worked hard to bring up to expectations of a good B and B. Friendly staff. Excellent service. Conviently located in a great section of town. Would I stay there again. Yes indeed and I will reccommend it to others who are looking for a place to stay in Jacksonville.

Charming Friendly Inn

4,0 sur octobre 05, 2011

My husband and I spent a weekend here together. I had bought a deal on LivingSocial to this inn. It was very lovely, the staff were very friendly and accommodating, my expectations were exceeded in every way. I would recommend this charming bed and breakfast to anyone.


4,0 sur septembre 22, 2011

Lovely; superb location near the River with a great view over to Downtown. Phantastic Bar with a human touch. Room was first class! Best choice, Annette + Franz from Germany

Amazing staff, can't wait to come back!

4,0 sur septembre 09, 2011

This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast and it was excellent! I will definitely look for B&B's over hotels. The rooms were nice and clean and the staff was incredibly helpful. Loved the food and their afternoon tea was delicious. We will definitely stay here again and reccomend it to friends and family!

Business trip made easier

4,0 sur septembre 05, 2011

Another business trip in jacksonville, where coming home to the Riverdale was the highlight of my day! Everyone is very accomadating and the room as always provided much comfort and relaxation. Looking forward to my next trip already! Thanks

loved this B&B! the service was great. its in walking distance of anything you would need. the breakfast and high tea were excellent. even though i live in the area would still love to return.

A Little Gem in Jacksonville

4,6 sur août 06, 2011

The staff were gracious, waiting up for us after we were several hours late arriving due to our flight delay. We had a delightful third floor room, large king bed, great bath, felt like we were in a treehouse, and it was quiet. Great hot breakfasts cooked to order each morning. The inn is in a very nice neighborhood just outside of downtown, a block from the river, walkable. Close to Avondale, where there are several gourmet restaurants.

Super Cozy B & B.

4,0 sur juillet 26, 2011

Most comfortable B & B I have ever stayed at. Plan to go back over and over again when I am in town for work.


2,6 sur juillet 25, 2011

The B&B is really nice, however, since this B&B shares a Pub & Restaurant with the Public, we always felt our space throughout the B&B was invaded.

Réponse du propriétaire
The Pub and Restaurant is not open to the general public. However, our guests staying with us can invite their friends for dinner with prior arrangement. We also host small receptions for wedding couples that stay with us if requested. Most of these events last two to three hours.

- Bob (innkeeper)

Would definitely stay here again!

4,2 sur juin 08, 2011

I purchased a package for this inn from LivingSocial.com. The Inn was beautiful and in a great area of Jacksonville right by the river. The owners were very nice and helpful. Accommodations were wonderful and breakfast was excellent! This trip was for my mom and me, but I can't wait to bring my husband back here!

Highly Recommended

4,8 sur juin 03, 2011

At Riverdale Inn, we felt a world away while remaining a short walk from Memorial Park, the beautiful Cummer Museum and fun dining and coffee establishments. Accommodations, food and service were superior.

Excellent short-term getaway

3,6 sur mai 19, 2011

Found and booked the Windsor Suite after finding the place through Google for the first two nights of my honeymoon. Upon arrival, found free parking in back and the main building to be taller than expected. Received generous help from staff--including one off-duty--to unpack our car. Unfortunately, there was no elevator to ease lifting luggage upstairs and our room was on the 3rd floor. Room itself was gorgeous, though seemingly smaller than pictures originally gave impression of. Bed was large and very comfortable, though the room didn't seem to have many droors to unpack luggage. May have been due to he fact all the furniture is antique, and I didn't consider being able to use it because it looked so nice. Bathroom for the room was spacious, as Windsor Suite is the only room with both shower and whirlpool tub. (Watch yourself on the drain plug, though. I scratched my leg by accident and it still hasn't fully healed.) Breakfast is made to order in their bar/lounge area, though guests only get two choices along with free coffee and orange juice. Cooking was delicious, though. They currently only serve breakfast, as they've had to discontinue offering dinner. Overall a good value for my purposes at the time, though expensive in comparison with hotel/motel chains.

The Riverdale Inn is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5 sur mai 17, 2011

We had our wedding at the Riverdale Inn on May 7th, 2011. From the time we walked into the place, the service was unbelievable! Lisa, who works the front desk, is an absolute joy, as well as Eric. The Inn Keepers were just as sweet as you could ask for in a bed and breakfast. We were able to rent the main house, which included a fantastic full service bar/pub, and an outstanding restaurant...ALL IN THE HOUSE...I have never seen that before in a bed and breakfast. The wedding was outstanding, which was out on the back deck, but the dinner was better then anything you could get at a 5 star restaurant. The pub was a blast and everyone is still commenting on how fabulous a time it was. Let's not forget that the place was immaculate, and smelled amazing! The rooms are even better in person....let's put it this way. We are considering having our anniversary there every year and inviting all of our friends that stayed that night to join. I really cannot say enough about this place....I travel a lot and hands down it was the best and most comfortable place I have ever stayed!!!! I LOVE THE RIVERDALE INN!!!!! THANKS SO MUCH, Jaime Eason Campanaro.

Not a great experience

2,2 sur mai 11, 2011

We just came for one night. Pictures online are much better than the real thing. Beds very uncomfortable-very creaky. Don't think there was any airconditioning - only fan and a dehumidifer. Barking dog outside room. We were in the carriage house but there was a wedding reception in the main house. We were told party went on until 2-3 am. If visitors were not part of the wedding party, they should have been advised about the wedding. So glad we were not in the main house.

Réponse du propriétaire
Sorry this guest experience was not satisfactory. We did have a wedding and reception in the main house that did last until a late hour. However, the wedding guests reserved the whole main house so they would not disturb other guests per our policy. I will have to assume they did not disturb anyone as this guest was "told the party went on until 2-3 am." We do not allow late parties unless the whole house is reserved to avoid disturbing other guests. We do allow small pets at our inn but we unaware of any noise problems as we did not get a complaint until now. We will review our rules about pets as it sounds like someone left their pet alone in the room and disturbed this guest. For the other items, we will be looking into the problems as stated.

- Bob (innkeeper)

What a wonderful experience!

4,8 sur mars 15, 2011

Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome last weekend! We travelled to Jacksonville for the Gate 15K with Oliver, a Jack Russell mix. The staff was so nice and really welcomed, rather than only tolerated, the dog. The house is beautifully restored and had many inviting nooks for reading or having a cup of tea. Everything is meticulously clean and so comfortable. The breakfast was great, and Linda even accommodated our "special needs" the morning of the race. The location was perfect, near the downtown and with plenty of shopping, restaurants, and beautiful parks nearby. I am looking forward to many more visits.

Riverdale Inn

5 sur janvier 28, 2011

We had a very pleasant stay. It was peaceful yet in a great location for many activities. Beautiful room and a wonderful breakfast in a very warm inviting dining area with fire.

What an amazing place

Best place for R&R

I was treated like a Queen for two days with delicious breakfast, great drinks, and a room fit for the Royals. It has wonderful walks through interesting neighborhoods and a great little shopping center and coffee shops within easy walking distance. When I visit Jacksonville (my old home town), this will always be my center of operation. Betty Toombs Rushton

Great place to stay

4,6 sur octobre 20, 2010

We stayed at this nice little bed and breakfast for an anniversary weekend. It was really nice place in a good area close to restaurants and the downtown area. We would definitely stay again!!

Our favorite B&B by far!

5 sur août 04, 2010

The Riverdale Inn is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. It's our go-to destination whenever we want a weekend away. The Walns and their staff have always made us feel like we are guests in their own beautiful home. We've made a conscious effort to stay in a different room each time we've stayed there, and every room is different and beautiful in its own way. All have been most comfortable, and scrupulously clean. The Row Restaurant has been a highlight of each stay - wonderful cooked-to-order breakfasts in the lovely Gum Bunch Pub, or exquisitely prepared and served dinners in the dining room - not to be missed! Do we love the Riverdale Inn? Oh, yes! Will we go back? You betcha! T&DM

Totally delightful experience!

3,8 sur juillet 20, 2010

Reserved the entire B&B for family and friends during our son's wedding. This historic home is a gem, beautifully decorated, and extremely comfortable. The awesome location is near the St. Johns River and is within walking distance to shopping, parks and the Cummer museum. The staff was very acomodating. Everyone in our party loved the house, all slept well and during the day, were able to take advantage of the pub and den for visiting and relaxing. We would all recommend this B& B...our stay was a totally delightful experience!

An Oasis of Peace and Quiet

4,8 sur juin 06, 2010

Located in the historic Five Points area and on a busy street you wouldn't know it once you've entered. Sit and read a book or go for a long walk along the river and in the park located near by. Enjoy a delicious breakfast and then come back for a cocktail at the bar before dinner in their award winning restaurant. We so enjoyed staying in an Inn that makes you feel like you're home instead of a hotel. We'll return again and again.

Very nice stay!

4,4 sur avril 14, 2010

My new husband and I were celebrating his 30th birthday and I surprised him with a stay at this cute Bed and Breakfast. After staying at these nice inns during our honeymoon, I have become a huge fan of B&Bs over your standard hotel. They have so much character and charm, and Riverdale Inn lived up to that picture. It was a great stay in the Windsor Suite---a fantastic two-person tub and nice two-person shower. Very romantic. The breakfast of a Belgian Waffle for me and scrambled eggs with bacon and toast for my husband was top notch. The service was great, and the room was in great condition. I would definitely recommend this inn if you would like a unique and memorable experience in Jacksonville!

Perfect in Jacksonville

5 sur avril 13, 2010

I travel quite a bit and stay in lots of various motels/hotels with the occasional B&B. I have a tendency to avoid B&B's because most are not as quiet as thick walled hotels. Well the Riverdale Inn changed all that. The rooms are quaint, quiet, homey and very comfortable. The Inn is an historic house in a wonderful part of Jacksonville with shops, stores, and restaurants nearby. But you can forget about going out to eat because one of the best places to eat is right down stairs in The Row Restaurant which was voted as one of the top eating establishments in Jacksonville. I have stayed at the Riverdale Inn 5 times during the last 2 months and will do so on every trip to Jacksonville.

Riverdale Inn was charming

4,4 sur avril 12, 2010

My fiance' and I had a quick stop over in Jacksonville for the Arts Market on Saturday April 10th and our host generously put us up in the Riverdale Inn. We though the Inn was very nice, and the neighborhood was outstanding. The river is close, the park is close, numerous fun artsy shops and restaurants are all a short walk away. If we have the opportunity to come through Jacksonville again we will try to stay at the Inn again. 2 thumbs up.

Second Business Stay

We missed breakfast because we were up late the previous night. The lady working the front desk gladly offered to whip us up some waffles. Of course, they were wonderful.

March 2010 Bed n Breakfast at the Riverdale Inn, Jacksonville, FL

5 sur mars 26, 2010

This was our first, yet certainly not our last, stay at the Riverdale Inn in Jacksonville, Florida. The breakfast, included in the price of our stay, was wonderful ... most anything we could have asked for on a breakfast menu was offered 'on demand' and made from scratch by their chef. Gracious, informative staff assisted us with our questions about the Jacksonville area, and they went out of their way to search for services available in the area and beyond anything a bed-n-breakfast could offer ... like automotive detailing, for example! On the internet they went in search of whatever we needed during our stay. This is a great place to land ... dependable, honest, respectable service provided by first-class staff. THANKS!!!!

The Total Package

4,8 sur mars 02, 2010

My husband and I were going to be passing through the area just for one night and found the inn just perfect. The room was romantic and spacious. the area lends itself to long strolls to the park a few blocks down on the waterfront. We enjoyed the quaint bar in the evening and the bartender was quite knowledgeable about the history of the area and the House. Then it was dinner in the dining room (we liked not having to hunt down a nice restaurant). The food was absolutely fabulous! I loved that smaller portions were available at a reduced price it was still plenty of food. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. Breakfast was just delicious, eggs bacon fresh fruit grits and toast. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

Unexpected Pleasure

4,0 sur février 05, 2010

We were very impressed with the quality of the Inn - The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Everything was immaculate. The Inn is situated in a beautiful section of town. Everyone at the Inn was very friendly and helpful. We had dinner at the Inn - the wine was excellent as were both our meals. An easy stroll to shopping needs and an easy stroll to an outstanding Fine Art Museum (Cummer). Our experience was outstanding. Marilyn Vitale

Roosevelt Room

4,2 sur février 02, 2010

Must say I wouldn't rely on the score. By this scale if you expected the room to be clean and it was that's just 3 out of 5. Rely on the narative, The place is awesome. Second time at the Riverdale. Very impressed with how well they kept historic features while adding details missing from the original plan (like bathrooms). The sisters running the B&B are gracious and friendly. Breakfast was excellent and the king size bed was amazingly comfortable. Short walk to 5 Points. Very relaxing stay. Highly recommend and will be back again. If you go and they're making pecan waffles, say "yes".

Beautiful place, friendly and helpful staff.

4,0 sur janvier 11, 2010

Beautiful place! This was the second time staying at this B&B. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice that we could actually have dinner there as well as our breakfast if we wanted. The in-house bar was nice as well. We were on business in Jacksonville and I enjoyed staying here. It's much better than a hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for during a 4 day business trip. Upon arrival, you get a real sense of history on the St. John's River. This beautiful, spotless B&B is so inviting and comfortable.

The food is amazing and the service is prompt!!! Don't miss out on this one-of-a-kind cozy B&B.

This was our first experience at a B&B and will certianly NOT be our last. The Riverdale Inn was charning and the inn keepers were more than accommodating. The food was beyond expectations and our family joined us for a delightful Saturday lunch. Our only disappointment was the lack of landscape maintenance --- dead planters, pruning and weeding needed.

Great therapy if your going to Mayos

5 sur mai 18, 2009

We've stayed at the Riverdale many times while being treated at Mayo Clinic in Jax and though it's a few miles out of our way the extra drive is worth it and the sumptous breakfast and friendly, helpful staff send us off well prepared for the rigors that sometime lay ahead. Upon our return from Mayos we look forward to a grand meal in The Row restaurant and have never been dissapointed. The whole Inn experience makes one almost look forward to a trip to the Doctor.

The breakfast was great. They made the best bacon we ever had(and they told us how they did it). The portions were just right. We had a great meal in "The Row" Restaurant. We wish we had this restaurant at home. We will stay there again when we are in Jacksonville to visit my sister.

This is a perfect fit for any traveler. I stayed here approximately four months for continuous business trips. The rooms have a victorian feel with all the necessary accomodations one needs for 2009. Internet access is easy, comfy robes, nice beds & linens. Breakfast is fantastic, the restaurant is a must! Creme Broule is my favorite! The Ahi Tuna is fabulous as well. You can't go wrong with this stay.

Cozy spot in the city

The Riverdale Inn is a welcome southern oasis in the midst of the big city. Clean, comfortable, and quiet, the inn is a perfect spot for a weekend getaway. Excellent coffee and hearty breakfast makes the stay complete.

I travel every week for business and usually stay in hotels. What a joy to find this B&B with a restaurant on site. The staff is so friendly, the rooms so unique and the breakfast great!

A Wonderful B&B Experience

We stayed at this inn in July 2008. It was gorgeous. We booked the Windsor Suite which has hosted many honeymooners (per the guestbook). The service was great, as was the included breakfast. We ate dinner at the inn's upscale restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. A highlight was sharing a bottle of wine on the lovely porch with a couple we met at dinner.

Outstanding Quality, Service and Value

Recently returned from a 4 day stay in the Shadowlawn Room. It far exceeded my expectations in every way: value; superior room size/cleanliness (very important to me); extremely quiet and great bed. I hosted a party of 5 in the Row restaurant; it was superb. The cuisine was great and the room size was perfect for intimacy and conversation. Most importantly, the Inn's staff was friendly, gracious and extraordinarily accomodating to both me and my friends. I travel constantly both domestically and internationally, and have become jaded. I don't expect jewels (no pun intended) but I recognize one instantly and appreciate it. The Riverdale Inn is a jewel. It's is perfectly situated a block from the river, Memorial Park, Starbuck's, a gym and many restaurants. I infrequently used my rental car. Although the weather was hot and muggy, the room and the entire Inn was extremely comfortable. I think it would be great in the fall/winter when the fireplaces are functional. I will be back soon. Highest recommendation. DF McLean, Va
