Margy and I enjoyed our stay at the Riverside immensely. We are grateful for the warm, gracious hospitality of your staff that assisted us, and made us welcome. On a bitter cold night, after a weary, exhausting day, your Inn was a most delightful respite. The room was so comfortable, restful, a safe haven in the night. The breakfast was... More

The Riverside Hot Springs Inn is in renovation mode. However, it is fabulous. Very clean, beautiful and the staff is helpful, friendly and accommodating. The price is so right. We stayed on the third floor and it was quiet and comfortable. Beautiful bathroom. WE soaked in a funky hot tub outside at first, then after dinner we soaked in a... More

The staff at this hotel is awesome and will go out of their way to make sure everything you want is just right. The inn is on the National Historic list and has a lot of rich history. We find the inn cozy, quaint, and the food is amazing! Chef Alonso is very talented and always come out to ensure... More

I'm so puzzled by the many negative reviews as I thought it was wonderful. Teddy Roosevelt stayed here! Aside from historicity, every convenience is offered - good wi-fi, an outside hot tub (where I enjoyed the sunset) has been re-plumbed with the hot mineral water. I was offered a robe which I even wore for an early morning coffee on... More

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful (they were amazing in fixing our reservation error). The hotel and spa itself was very worn and dirty. The rooms were surface clean but don't dig too deep...old beer bottles in the corner, fan blades and window blinds with deep dust. It's time for a major deep clean.

Yep, some friends/I stayed here (On Harley's)...the (sorry) slightly large lady at the front desk was more than friendly, more than accomodating, more than friendly! - WOW! - we stayed 'across the street' in an apartment (6 of us!)...the complimentary breakfast was great!

One word to describe this place is a dump. Don't waste your money, stay somewhere else. The toilets don't have lids to shut, no stopper in bathroom sink, no night stands or anything for that matter to get luggage off from the floor. Grown ups walking around drinking alcohol and screaming in the halls. Very overpriced. Carpets must be original... More
