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

I had terrific service from Josh on the night desk when I showed up in Riverside to claim my reservation in Anaheim. 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. The site is still on its shakedown cruise from major renovations... More

I booked a AAA king which was $7 more a night than a queen. I was given a queen room, and when I decided to check out early, I asked about it. The front desk staff disagreed with me until I showed them the website to prove that I was overcharged. I asked for a refund and they didn't know... More

Corp. Marriott thought green and burgundy was "so 1990s" that Courtyards are being hosed out and renovated. The new design manages to make the same floor space appear smaller, crowded, and "cheap". Perhaps there will be improvements, but: -noisy construction between 8 and 5 -one elevator not enough for 6 floors - wifi works if you can access Comfort Inn... More

This hotel was undergoing remodeling, which we did not know about. Only one elevator was working very slowly. The hallway on the first floor was closed off, so you couldn't use the stairs to get to your room. It was difficult to get around. Very long wait for elevator.
