The Valley River Inn, a resort-style hotel, is located on the banks of the Willamette River, just five minutes from downtown Eugene, the airport, the Convention and Exposition Center and the University of Oregon. Tax-free shopping at Valley River Center and miles of scenic bike paths are just outside the door. A perfect destination for couples, families, singles and business travelers, at Valley River Inn, you are close to everything but feel like you are a million miles away. Built in 1973 by a prominent local timber family, the hotel conveys a true feeling of northwest casual elegance with towering wooden beams, warm and inviting fireplaces, lush gardens and artwork by Northwest artists. Our 257 oversized guestrooms are well appointed and feature views from private patios or balconies of the Willamette River, swimming pool or landscaped courtyards.
