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

Downieville, CA is a quaint little town that makes for a great get away. Many people know about Downieville for the excellent mountain biking and that is why we were there. It was obvious that the fishing and just plain relaxing is pretty good too. We stayed in the Riverside Inn which fit the bill perfectly for us. The Inn... More

Been in Downieville a few times. I have relatives in Quincy, about an hour away. This is first time staying here. Its a busy place, the only bummer is they roll up the sidewalk at 8. Not a terrible thing but if you are a late arrival just be sure you have eaten, you will find nothing in this town.... More

Having been on the road for nearly 3 weeks we arrived in the rain at Downeyville and chose the Riverside in to stay for the night. The owner Mike immediately made us feel welcome and rushed to turn on the gas log stove in our room making the room instantly cosy. The room itself was nicely furnished with comfortable beds... More
