From the photographs of A Riverside Inn, my wife and I assumed that it was located in an area near a river or mountain stream. We were somewhat disappointed to find that the motel sits just off the main highway and there is no water in sight. This is a basic motel. We had a room with queen beds. One... More

We checked in on Friday, 7/24/15. We had reserved a room w/ a king bed. They only had queens left. We asked to speak with the owner. He was rude & did not care. He told us he can cancel the reservations & we could go somewhere else. Additionally, the room itself was not very clean. The blanket had other... More

Cindy at desk is awesome! Work with her cause other staff not so much. Hotel nicely decorated, pretty clean,no pool. Breakfast is sparse. Make sure you get an email confirmation, they try to charge you more if not.

Not really that much to talk about. Basic motel, clean and efficient room, large pool, good beds, decent breakfast and you are back on the road after a good nights sleep and not feeling cheated in the least. No problem recommending this place to whoever is passing through this pretty town

We tired of driving on a drive through some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. We were pleased to find a room at the Riverside. The room was nicely furnished, but a bit sparse on decor. I thin this may have been the most immaculately clean & fresh room we have ever occupied. I mean there was not... More

A good basic motel. While it is nothing special, it is clean and comfortable and fairly priced, which is just what one wants in a relatively out-of -the-way spot such as Fairplay. I've stayed here several times and was not disappointed.

We stayed at A Riverside Inn for one night and were pleased with the accommodations. This is a no-frills place but has excellent customer service, which means a lot to my family. The room was clean and comfortable, and the free continental breakfast was basic but tasty, and had a couple of different options for protein (warm, hard boiled eggs,... More

No pool, no hot tub as stated on the web. and they did not honor the price quoted on the phone. The man at registration did not believe me until I showed him the website and he was blowing it off like its no big deal. He told me he was the only one who answered the phone when I... More

This was a last minute stay, with CO2 leak at home. The hotel was clean, desk staff very friendly. Unfortunately, they had power outage earlier with loss of hot water. In morning still no hot water and intermitten internet. Did not offer discount for lack of hot water. However, some motorcyclists were stranded at the motel for several days in... More

We hit some bad weather when traveling and ended up in Fairplay, CO. A Riverside Inn was the first hotel we came to and we are thankful they had a room! We ended up having to stay two nights. The staff was very helpful and understanding of our situation. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable.... More
