The motel is dated, as are most of the motels in this area - however the staff were great, the rooms and pool were clean, and you can't beat the location. We only stayed two nights, but plan to return next summer for longer. It is ideal for families- especially with small children. Rooms have a kitchenette and there are... More

The rooms are 70's but very clean and my granddaughter said to me this morning, we haven't talked to anyone who works at this motel that isn't NICE!! Owner Nick is really pleasant and bends over backwards to help or deal with any issues. Very family oriented. Great salt water pool. Would highly recommend this for a fun, family vacation... More

We stayed at the Riverside Motel from July 12 - 19, 2014. Reservations were made online and was a very easy process. Our room had a kitchenette and seemed to be well stocked with the essentials. The room as always clean and the cleaning staff were flexible in accommodating our schedule. The air conditioning worked well too. The staff were... More

The service was top notch. We arrived a week before there summer season opened, but they rushed to get the pool ready so we could enjoy it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is an older Motel, but is well cared for and clean.

I know I shouldn't be saying this as I want to kind of keep this place a secret and to myself for selfish reasons, however I must say that this is one of the best places I've ever stayed at. Nick, and his family who run this place are such amazing people and I really feel will do anything to... More

We have stayed here a few times for vacations and have always had clean and spacious enough rooms. Nice to have the pool area, plenty of parking, kitchenette. Long time owner Nick keeps a quiet place so you can have a good rest without a lot of party people. This is not high end but if you are looking for... More

Nice Motel within walking distance to the lake. We spent the days mtn biking on kvr trail and the evenings relaxing in the pool. The pool is really nice and well maintained. The rooms are clean, not overly big but what you would expect in a motel. The kitchens were good and we picked up food from the local grocer... More

We have stayed at the Riverside a number of times the past few years and always have found it to be great, especially the pool area. The rooms are good, clean and well maintained for an older motel. The kitchens could use an upgrade and more pots and pans. If you want to do a lot of your own cooking,... More

I loved that this motel was close to the beach without being on the noisy waterfront. It's also just across the street from Adventure Land and Coyote Cruises (the start of the channel). The motel also has a fantastic courtyard pool and we were lucky enough to have a room just outside it. There are picnic tables and chairs in... More

Great location - close to Lakeshore Dr. Beach scene but around the corner in a quieter area. Most rooms overlook the saltwater pool and patio which is a great place to soak up the sun. Clean, family friendly, kitchenette units, balconies on the 2nd floor, 2 BBQ areas, picnic tables, laundromat and all very well maintained. Short walk to Coyote... More
