We have stayed at this hotel twice in the last year and will definitely come back again. Just a couple of blocks from the thick of historic downtown Riverside, it was very convenient. There is a Greyhound station nearby with some interesting folks milling about, but the Police Station is right next door so we never felt intimidated. The rooms... More

I just got back from this hotel yesterday and have to say its exactly as the pictures show it to be--clean, Bath & Body Works toiletries, large screen TVs and all. The included breakfast is great for the room price (has those new waffle-makers and Wolfgang Puck coffee machine); but, beware the breakfast closes an hour earlier on weekdays (9am)... More

If you want to be near the downtown area, this is a good place to stay. The room is clean and small and the ambiance is what you would get for the lower price that you would be paying. The comforter is quite heavy and uncomfortable, so it was not used and the heater blower is a little bit noisy.... More

This property is excellent value. It is in a great location near the downtown and university area. You are only a very short walk from restaurants and the Mission area. We walked after dark and felt very safe. Still talking about the great room. Really nice upgraded furniture, bedding, and especially the shower. The staff was very helpful and friendly.... More

This what I can say! For Value, Cleanliness, Helpful Information Staff, Hot Breakfast, over 150 HD Channels, there is no where I would rather stay while I conduct business in the Riverside area. Kudos to this property for maintaing a standard above what a ABVI is preceived to be and is in my view comparable to the Marriott down the... More

What Can I Say! There is no other value, comfort, cleanliness, location to choose while conducting business in the Riverside area. Hot breakfast, over 150 channels of HD TV, very clean room every stay and a informative & helpful staff for all my needs while I stay in this town. Kudos for many years now.

If your looking for a motel on a budget then this is the place. I stayed for a week and couldn't have been more pleased with the rate, service, room, and location. They have free Wi-Fi, 42" TV w/ HBO & Cinemax, a continental breakfast, and comfortable beds. The rooms are clean and smell good. It's right in downtown Riverside... More

First it is very easy to find just off the I15 it's in downtown area so handy for shops and nightlife. There is good free parking , nice staff and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Now my wife is a bit of a wuss and a couple of the reviews on here talked about being uncomfortable about walking... More

I found myself on the road late and needing to be at a morning meeting so I chose to stay in town rather than driving the hour home. I chose this place based upon tripadvisor ratings and was not disappointed. I was checked in in minutes, and the room was as stated in so many reviews. The furnishings and decor... More

This a great affordable find. The hotel is simple with only two stories and 48 rooms. Rooms face both toward and away from University Ave. I had a room facing the avenue, but had no noise impact from the traffic. The room is exactly like the photos. The furnishings are new and clean. The room is not large, but it... More
