I needed a room for 2 nights during my stay in Riverside. Right away when I walked in i notice the lobby. I had to stop, sit down, and watch Jurassic Park. It looked great on the TV! The couches, chairs and tables made it very inviting. Everything was so modern. I was solo so I didn't hang out in... More

My fiancé and 2 teenage boys recently stayed here for New Years Eve 2015. Our plans were to see the Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn and the Courtyard Marriott was only 3 miles away and $130/night compared to the Mission Inn @ $300. I expected a dinky rundown hotel but this was quite the opposite. The rooms were... More

My hubby and I went for just one night (New Year's Eve) to the Riverside area and needed a place to stay. This hotel was conveniently located to the downtown area as well as outlying Riverside locations and between two major freeways. The staff was extremely pleasant and the rooms were very nice. It looked like this facility may have... More

My wife and I stayed here only one night, but we really liked our stay. Having enough updated USB plugs for all our 'gadgets' was a nice plus. The bed was firm but not stiff as a board and pillows, pillows, and more pillows. Nice puffy pillows, not those flat door mat style you get at some places. I did... More

I thought I had made reservations at the Convention Center Marriott, and was told that happens a lot. They aren't far from each other, maybe two miles, but very different areas of town. So just be sure you know which one you want. Lobby was renovated in the new Marriott style, very cozy and sleek. The room itself was nicely... More

This could have been a "Motel 6" property. Area looks very unsafe with homeless people loitering about the streets. I had to call housekeeping twice to get my room cleaned. Bathroom was very small. Room was tiny, but nicely furnished. Room had a fridge, microwave, sofa and pullout bed. Carpet needed some serious steam cleaning. Windows were dirty. Hallway was... More

I live in Riverside, but for some unexpected reasons, I had to stay in local hotels for some extended time period (there was no personal drama, simply I was moving in and out of new places.) I stayed in other hotels also in Riverside. I also recommend Mission Inn, Hyatt Place, and Marriott in Riverside (please avoid Quality Inn). But,... More

Josh called the Anaheim site, cancelled my reservation there, and got me a room in Riverside for the same price. Same great service from the morning staff.
