The people working there are nice, but that is the only thing good about this motel. Please, please, please, avoid this place at all cost! You have been warned! What more can I say, you read between the lines.

I was a little worried booking this place, and arriving there my fears just got worse... No one in the front desk to help us, the hallways looked really old and poorly kept. Eventually the person in the front desk was very nice and apologetic for not being there earlier, and the moment we opened the door to the room... More

We were attracted here because it had one of the lowest rates in town. That was the only real positive. The place is in serious need of a remodel, and is NOT located on the river. Yes, the river is nearby, but surprising for a place called RIver Inn! The carpets were loose/torn, the bed was soft, and the room... More

I could not recommend this place to a friend & feel good about it. Redding CA is hot, so unless you are a lover of heat then you need an AC in the summer months. I called to ask if the room I might rent had AC, as being a road trip warrior I know better than to take anything... More

I was greeted at 0500 in the morning by a wonderful lady (manager) that made me welcome like family. All of the staff bent over backwards to make me comfortable. I was always greeted with a smiling face! It was quite different from the advertising, as California law closed the pool until a handicap lift could be installed. I found... More

This was a nice, inexpensive place to stay. The decor of the room was sort of 70's retro style. Very comfortable bed, clean room, nice people at the desk. The exterior needs work but if you just need a place to sleep it is great! We will definitely return.

Before checking onto the motel I read some really poor reviews but I was in a pinch and decided to go for it anyways. When walking into the lobby I was greeted by a very friendly lady who made me laugh. She was so sweet. I checked in with a dog and to my surprise there was NO extra charge... More

We stay here quite often and have never had a bad experience. The new manager is making a lot of changes to the place. They have been remodeling rooms and planting new shrubs and flowers. The staff is very friendly, they make you feel welcomed and right at home. The rooms are clean, beds are pretty comfortable and very quiet... More

I stopped here on my way to Oregon with my daughter, age 9. We were so tired from driving, we didn't read any reviews and just wanted to sleep. I started to smell a musty smell, and regretted getting a room here right away. The carpets are so dangerous, think bumps and carpets that need to be stretched out. Old,... More
