The RiverBank Lodge was a great place to stay if you want to go to Lincoln's New Salem. The decor is beautiful and welcoming. The beds are very comfortable and great showers. The continental breakfast has several different items and the front desk was very nice and accommodating.

I was encouraged by the recent positive reviews and pictures online. We had to stay here for a family wedding being held at the nearby winery in the block of rooms that were held. At first glance, all is as promised: dramatic architecture and a "lodge" quality. The following are the reasons for my review: very small room for a... More

We have come twice a year for the last 5 years! Beds are comfy! Staff is so accommodating. Absolutely love this place! Very peaceful and just a great place!! Plus restaurants nearby are the best!! Just beyond the New Salem state Park. Continental breakfast is great!! Will be coming back for years to come!!

We chose this Lodge as it was close to Greenview,Il. Very clean. Room was nice. Friendly staff. Not a bad "cold" breakfast. If you like trains, one goes right by,right by. Historic New Salem very close by,too.

My wife and I stayed at the Riverbank Lodge for Thanksgiving weekend for a couple’s get-away. I’d heard about it from a co-worker and he gave it very high remarks. We arrived the day before Thanksgiving after a surprise snow storm hit the area. It was a long, nail-biting drive once we got off of I-55 (there is no direct... More

The RiverBank Lodge is an unusually nice motel in a small town. The staff there is top notch and are very knowledgeable about the Abe Lincoln sites in the area. You will only be about 2 miles from the Lincoln's New Salem State Historic site (log cabin village and museum). The accommodations are outstanding. The Motel has a very northwoods... More

This is a modern motel with a rustic decorating theme, very welcoming. We recently had five rooms, including the large bank vault room which served as our gathering place. The adults enjoyed the big lounge and the kids liked the play area on the balcony. The bar/restaurant, which has the best pizza I've eaten in years, is obviously popular with... More

The people were nice and friendly, but the room was too hot and no there was to open a window to cool it down :( Our room had some issues like bulbs burned out, not enough toilet paper, and the shower curtain din not seal well at the sides which caused...

The hotel is very clean and cozy. If you're going to visit Petersburg you should do it in the fall - it is so beautiful. The hotel also has a very small but cozy lounge/bar. This is a great place to stay.

My husband and I booked a "delux" room for 2 days at the RBL. First off, we had to pay in advance for the stay when we checked in. Plus they wanted us to pony up an extra $100 as a deposit. This "delux" room is smaller than any stardard hotel room and with no closet or dresser for clothing,... More
