Poor internet reception, sparse breakfast--hardly a meal, pleasant staff but try to find them, rudimentary exercise room, '60's rooms. But who cares? If you're in Fairplay, it's likely the outdoors that attracted you, not hanging around in your motel. Awesome mountains surround you and many other outdoor options. You can go to a restaurant with WiFi if it's that important... More

We stayed here for a meeting with our company. The meeting was in a home in the area. The room was nice and clean. Staff was nice. But the internet was horrible and would never let us on. The breakfast was basic - sweet rolls, small muffins, yogart and cereal - also some fruit. But it came with the room.... More

Stayed 3 nights. Very happy with the room. The breakfast was basic but did have bananas and fresh peaches. Would stay again as its a great location for hiking. It's on the highway but traffic noise wasn't bad.

There may be another hotel in town but we came in at night and did not see one. I called to see if they had a room and the gentleman on the phone said that he did and was quoted a price of $119.00 AARP discount which i thought was a little steep but did not want to drive any... More

Checkin: Took awhile to checkin. The person at the desk appeared to be new and she had an accent that I had trouble understanding. Room: Very roomy and clean. The phone message light kept blinking but there were no messages. Bed: King size bed was comfortable with decent linens. Bathroom: Clean. Nice nickel satin fixtures. The toilet is oddly located,...

Our nephew originally checked in to a handicap room at another hotel. It turned out to be a joke ( not funny) and the Riverside staff accommodated him and other family members who were also traveling. We cant thank you enough for the nice stay.

Kicked out due to argument over quoted $99 room and when I arrived it was actually $120. Verify cost before you get off the phone cause the person on the phone might not know what they are talking about.

For a small town hotel in the mountains it was very nice! Rooms seems to be updated, good beds and overall clean. Nice and comfortable stay. Overall very good, would recommend. Down the street they have the best breakfast at the bowling alley!

We are traveling cross country on our bicycles. This hotel was a nice location for us to take a rest day. You are within walking distance of several restaurants and town. The hotel is clean. The A/C works well although the one in our room(119) had an off and on rattle which was annoying at night when we were trying... More

This hotel is very nice! It has new furniture, bedding and carpet. The rooms are large and the air conditioning is a luxury in the mountain towns. They have a free breakfast that includes instant oatmeal, yogurt, bread, danish and cereal. It is on Hwy 285 so it is not walking distance to the town center area, but it is... More
