The room was nice and clean and the staff was very helpful with local activities. The best thing about this motel is the location, on the river and within walking distance of town square. We really enjoyed our stay at the Riverbend Motel and will stay again.

At initial look we were a little worried but as we walked in the lobby we were greeted by an awesome desk person who made us feel right at home. He gave us several suggestions for restaurants in area that were spot on. Our room was on second floor and was a nice room. Bed was clean and very comfortable... More

We enjoyed our River view from our room. The rooms are a nice size with a comfortable bed, flat screen tv and more than enough room. Decor is nice, but there is work going on to upgrade some of the rooms. Owner was super nice. We hope to be going back in June! :-)

My wife and stayed here on our way back from Florida. I always try to pick a hotel based on the reviews of Tripadvisor and if it is locally owned. This hotel met all the requirements. Mark, at the front desk, was very helpful. He gave us two great places to eat (best food I had in a long time).... More

It was a cute and comfy room located right in the middle of town close to everything. The staff was very helpful in finding things to do around the town and the hotel was way above standard for the price. We can't wait to visit again in the spring :)

Literally, Mark Merchant and his Riverbend Motel saved our weekend getaway. My love scheduled us for the first weekend of Jan (birthday (her's) & nostalga (her ninth grade band trip)). But she planned it for me, for my fondness and love of Europe (veteran). She booked us through Expedia at what was suppose to be America's Best Motel three months... More
