The Riverside Inn in Downieville is a special find in the Sierras of North Eastern California. It is a fine old wooden building situated directly on the banks of the North Fork of the Yuba River. Our second floor room was delightfully furnished with a comfortable king bed and two upholstered wooden rocking chairs. The room was heated by a... More

This place is right on the Yuba River - each room has a balcony overlooking the river. Our room was knotty pine and very quaint and well appointed. Hosts are VERY nice and very helpful. Continental Breakfast was superb - bagels and lox, ham and gouda cheese, blueberry breakfast bread as well as fresh fruit & vegies. Great for a... More

We stayed for one night over the weekend, and although the hotel itself is nothing special the location is amazing. Right on the river with clean (if a little dated, but charming) rooms. At night we could hear the water rushing by, and there are overhanging balconies. I'll be back for sure!

We had a very comfortable one night stay at this charming inn. Our room with king bed was nicely decorated and had a lovely view of the river. The owners were friendly and welcoming, even provided covered parking for our motorcycle. A continental breakfast was served in the lounge but trays were also provided if one wanted to eat in...

It was my first time to Downieville (went for Mountain biking) and I would definitely go back to Riverside Inn. I gave it 3 stars bc the rooms are a bit run down (worn carpet) and the breakfast fine, but not really special. The proprietors are 5 star--friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was bagels (cream cheese and salmon), toast, coffee... More

This year was our fourth annual return to one of the best little places on earth. Clean comfortable and enjoyable. Breakfast is always a treat, not just for the coffee and bagels, but the fun conversations that always spring up in a totally relaxing environment. Fishing on the Yuba is always a treat (if you know how to fish you... More

We stayed at the inn a few years ago and it has stayed in my mind ever since. The return visit lived up to expectations.The weather was extremely hot but the proximity to the fast-flowing river meant we were never uncomfortable.The sound of the river is also soothing and relaxing.The balcony is a great place to sit and take in...

The soothing river flowing by while you sleep was wonderful! We enjoyed the lox and bagel breakfast and the clean comfortable room. Our stay in Downieville was over the 4th of July and we got to see the quirky and sweet parade with the "fireless fireworks" giant bubblewrap finale!

Great location next to the river. Town is friendly with a relaxing demeanor. Operators are friendly and room was clean and comfortable. Could not ask for better backround music than the sound of the Yuba river 24/7. Good continental breakfast with stimulating conversation with fellow guests that seem to enjoy this place as much as I did. If you need... More

This is an older hotel with only 12 rooms with separate balconies looking over the Yuba River... (my husband and I could actually talk back and forth as he was pulling in fish and me on the balcony!) The river is so powerful that we were never disturbed by folks 2 doors down enjoying themselves as well.......we left the balcony... More
