My best friend and I stayed for three days. The room was clean and we felt very safe. We could walk to town and didn't have to worry about parking. The front desk employee was funny and very helpful. Can't wait to bring the family and stay again.

We stayed 2 nights at Riverbend Motel during the 4th of July weekend. We had stayed there in the past, but this time the rooms had been upgraded with hardwood floors and very modern furniture. I loved the new ceiling in the room! The management is very friendly and helpful. The location is right on the river with swings and... More

Well decorated interior with a real home feeling. Balcony looked right onto the river which I enjoyed while having my morning coffee. Place was fully furnished. It was also an easy walk to get food or go shopping! Loved my stay and will definitely be a returning customer!

I watched as the manager tried to make an impossible customer happy. It was a lost cause, but a valiant effort. I do know after watching this exchange, if I have... More

If we had not traveled with our dog, we would never had stayed at this motel! Due to needing to get a better location than the cabin in the woods we had rented from Tanglewood (which was horrible; run down and nasty), we just needed an upgrade and it was last minute on the 4th of July. The manager took... More
