This hotel offers an old world experience in a prime location. It is located on the river. Walking distance to the Atlantic. Flagler Avenue is the walkable area of New Smyrna with lots of shops and restaurants and this place is prime to enjoy the Avenue. There is a wonderful little Spa that is part of the hotel.

If you are planning a vacation in New Smyrna Beach you will find that the Riverview Hotel mixes comfort with convenience. Our room was comfortable and clean, decorated in an old fashioned cozy style. The staff was very friendly. Amenities like the free morning paper and free Wi-Fi, and the Friday and Saturday wine and cheese get together for guests... More

A great location, close to intercostal, beach and bars etc. Nicely decorated rooms and cool pool area. Bikes for rent are great for beach cruising. The biggest problem is the horrible piped music by the pool...makes it unable to rest on balcony or by the pool. Note to owners: "people now have headphones and access to their own music"

This was one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever been on. The rooms were a little small, but beautifully decorated, clean and cosy. The staff was friendly and helpful. There were bikes you could ride for free if you wished to visit Flager Ave shops and restauants. We could see the river from our room, or go out... More

My husband and I were on a family vacation in Daytona and decided to sneak away for a night. This was the perfect place! We enjoyed the pool deck which was a true oasis. The room was well appointed and even though the lobby was undergoing a facelift there was no noise or interruption to our stay - and I... More

The rooms are nice but the carpet is absolutely filthy....as noted in the title the walls are a little thin so you can expect those adjacent to your room to hear your goings on and vice versa. Overall the staff are very accommodating and super friendly doing little extras like laundering a shirt, or letting you use bikes etc to... More

My wife and I travel a lot and we were very impressed with The Riverview Hotel. In the days leading up to our stay, Judy from the hotel called to confirm and to see if there was anything they could do to make our stay more pleasurable. I have yet to stay at another hotel that calls for future guest... More

Beautiful room with comfortable bedding. French door to the private back balcony, you can see tropical plants and swimming pool. Marble top outdoor table. First time there, we had complementary continental breakfast served in room. Incredible!!! Staffs are very helpful. Restaurant has decent food and a great view. Lobby is under renovation. It feels like going to someone's home. We... More
