Making a quick trip through the area we stopped and rented a couple rooms. Because of the lower cost I will not go into great detail. The rooms were pretty clean if you didn't look behind the furniture. The bed was very firm, micro & nice fridge in room. Plenty of hot water. Coffee & packaged pastry for breakfast.

Hi, Patricia, and thanks for taking the time to give us a review. There is no excuse for sloppy housekeeping, and we appreciate you letting us know that we missed an opportunity to show how much we care about our guest's experience. I'll pass along your comments to our staff to ensure we meet or exceed your expectations the next... More

This motel is the way they used to be. No coffee maker in the room, shower with no water saving features, and the old style TV (still working well, so why change it?) Very charming staff on the front desk brightened up our day. Good value for an overnight stay/

Greetings dear Canadian Traveler! Thank you for the kind assessment of The River Inn! We've thought of putting coffee makers in each room, but found that most guests didn't like the taste of the coffee made in the little pots, so we decided to put the coffee service in the lobby so we can monitor freshness and taste from coffee...

Used to stay at the Super 8 while going through town but the old beds and linens started to gross me out. Thought we'd try somewhere else and decided to give the River Inn a try. Good choice. This older property has been spruced up and is in excellent shape. When we checked in I was informed they could give... More

We at the River Inn appreciate your staying with us and that you enjoyed your stay! We try hard to exceed a guests expectation with the mini-fridge and microwave; not something most will find in an economy motel. We're about 30% into our planned renovations and we started with our bedding and carpet. We hope to be done by Spring... More

I stumbled on to this place several years ago and have since gone out of my way to stay here again. The rooms are clean, well maintained and very reasonably priced. The office staff have always been friendly and helpful. It also shares a parking lot of a decent steak house / Mexican restaurant. Good as it gets.

Hey, PJ! Thanks for the kudos on our Motel. We're on a mission to change the way people experience an economy Motel. The fridge and microwave in each room, a guest laundry and community patio area are just a few things that set us apart. We're upgrading the furnishings next, so when you come by again, we hope you'll be... More

I just packed up to leave the River Inn, but before I leave I've decided to write a few words about the River Inn.

We stayed one night in Susanville. This was the best value motel in town. Rooms were a little tired but clean and had all the usual motel amenities. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only a short walk to the excellent beers and food at LAW at the Pioneer. This place is definitely worth trying.

I'm writing this as I sit in the River Inn, very happy with our choice of lodging for the night. We have stayed many times in the past in Susanville, and while all the places were adequate, this is the best so far. We have a very reasonably priced (under $65), large queen room with a microwave and fridge. There's... More

Stopped here on the way to Crater Lake. It is conveniently located in town along our route and had a good rate. The room was old, but in good condition. Most important was that it was clean and had a comfortable bed. They had coffee in the lobby along with some pastry items for breakfast. Not much, but enough to... More

What's not to like for a place that is clean, comfortable, very reasonably priced, with staff who are friendly and welcoming? The rooms are incredibly spacious, and are not cluttered with so much furniture so as to turn them into obstacle courses. The staff lets you know up front what discounts might be available, and are committed to helping offer... More
