During our annual Corvette cruise, we stayed at this local hotel. It was inexpensive period. The room was clean and free of smoke or pet odors. Beds were OK. It is on the main drag and there were several very loud bikes and cars until after about 1:00 am. No breakfast other than rolls and coffee. Busy place. Seemed like... More

Traveling home from Southern California to Oregon, and decided to stop for the night. Very friendly check in, room was very basic, but clean and quiet. As someone mentioned pillows a bit basic, but had one of my own so not a problem. Right next door to a restaurant so that was convenient.

Very good value. We stayed one night after attending the crab feed at Elks, rather than driving back to Reno. We just were not fond of pillows. Very clean! Felt it was a very good value. Good coffee & hot chocolate, too.

Hi, Kathie. The Elks does such a great job each year with their crab feed, and we're thankful you decided to stay with us. We love our neighbors from Reno! It would be great to know what you didn't exactly like about our pillows. We'd appreciate knowing some specifics so we can correct any issues for which we are unaware.... More

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.

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.

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.
