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 manager. He seemed to not really care and showed very little empathy. He told us he can cancel the reservations & we could go somewhere else. This was not really the response we were... More

Anywhere else I would give this 1-2 stars. Hotel OK. Front desk not very helpful or friendly. On our second, and last, day the front desk clerk could not be bothered to look up from her computer to say hello. NO amenities in the room to speak of. Liquid soap and not enough if you have been out hiking or... More

I stayed here with my kids for a couple of nights as we were traveling through. I appreciate when I can find a clean, efficient place to stay at a fair price. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was basic but good. Room was a basic 2 bed with TV, table, coffee pot and nice bathroom. The room was very clean. I... More

Very Average, Check was easy and customer service was ok. Room was plain and very average, Could not get cool-air to work so spent the night with fan on high in the bed next to the fan. Did not want to open window due to Bright outside security lights. So not the best night sleep. Location was OK for us... More

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

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
