This is a smaller lodge but still very lovely. The staff was amazing and the pizza and appetizers were tasty. We stopped at the lodge after spending the day in Springfield, and headed to New Salem and the golf course. Our room had a fridge and sink, along with a microwave. The bed was fine and the room was very... More

Staff is super friendly. Room was as advertised. The lounge is very nice. The breakfast could be a bit more, but it is advertised as continental, and that is very much what it is. We stayed in the jacuzzi suite. The jacuzzi tub seemed like it was due a thorough cleaning. The hotel is right on the river, as advertised,... More

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
