Warm, friendly and helpful staff were attentive to our requests. The Sandbar was convenient, full of friendly people and was pet friendly. The service was good and the food was reasonably priced. Finger steaks were tender and the sauces provided really enhanced the flavor. Breakfast buffet was included and the food was great... especially the Riverside bacon. Mmm... Breakfast also... More

Loved the location and the service at the hotel. The room was immaculate as well as the pool which was beautiful outdoor venue. Salt water pool a real plus as well as the Sand Bar near by with live music. The morning buffet with custom Omelets was superb and added to the wonderful value of the hotel.

I stayed at the Riverside Hotel at the beginning and end of a rafting trip. The property is nicely landscaped, with the rooms surrounding a central courtyard where the pool and an outdoor bar and grill are. The courtyard opens up to a river walkway. The outdoor bar and grill was very good. Musicians were great, drinks were excellent, and... More

We liked the Sand Bar restaurant by the pool. Good food and good service. We also enjoyed the geese that gathered right outside of our sliding doors, eating the plums that the squirrel was trying to gather up after shaking them off the limbs of the tree. The salt water pool was very nice - I loved that it wasn't... More
