The truth is this is an older hotel that requires some obvious refurbishment (new windows all around, for one) – but it is brimming with charm & character (including a bit of quirkiness) if you look a little deeper. Guest rooms are spacious and the bedding is clean, cushy & cozy (what I call the three Cs!) so you’ll fall... More

I booked through a blind bidding site and got this "3 star" hotel. The hotel looks like it would have been very nice a long time ago. In the common areas: the halls smelled, the carpets need replaced, the walls need painting, etc... In the rooms: I saw three rooms and they all needed painting, carpets needed replacing, metal trim... More

Stayed at this once trendy Rockford hostelry for two very lonely nights. It was the front desk clerk and I, no one else in the entire hotel. I was first placed in a ground floor room on the parking lot side. The window was broken. I asked to be moved and was given a room on the river view side.... More

A short one night visit to this unique Antique - filled hotel was pleasant. Though some updates are needed and interior painting.....the hotel was clean and all of the expected amenities including hot buffet breakfast, flat screen...rooms were large and it had the old classic hotel feel. Would return. I appreciated the work done here to restore this riverside property... More

Hummmm, when booking a river view room there was no view other then bushes. The windows did not open, that left me feeling unsafe if there was any kind of emergency. One of the rods from the curtains were missing.The couch in the room was torn, there was a hole in the wall from the door. The TV was barely... More

They are doing an amazing job of restoring this beautiful resort. I stayed in the least expensive room and it was huge. I had the best night sleep of any hotel. the bed was amazing. The art throughout the building is fantastic. They have a brochure for the walking tour. There is a trail over the bridge along the river.... More

The hotel may have seen better days, but it has an interesting eclectic feel with many different intricate European styles. Some areas seemed to have been in state of renovation with sample boards of materials and colors used in the meeting/common rooms. We had a Groupon and stayed only one night. We had the castle suite and it was clean.... More

We attended a wonderful wedding at cliffbreakers. We stayed in the hotel and had a very nice time. My husband enjoyed the pool. We enjoyed the resort bar after the wedding. The view is beautiful along the river. We attended Sunday brunch that was very accomadating for my daughters gluten allergy.
