We chose this hotel after a long day wandering the beautiful town of Madison. There were plenty of chain hotels to stay in north of town, but none of them offered the view, and the location of the Riverboat Inn. This is one of the friendliest staffs I've ever encountered. Everyone there, employees and guests, seemed to be there for... More

I just returned from a three day visit to Madison, Indiana. I met an old friend there from Evansville, Indiana and I am from the Columbus, Ohio area. I was celebrating my birthday and as I have done before, I wanted to spend my birthday at the Riverboat Inn. Kathy, the owner, is always friendly as is all the staff... More

Older motel, bathrooms very small, a noticeable musty smell in the rooms. 3 couples stayed in the Paddlewheel, 3 couples in the condo right next door. Don't think I could stay there more than a couple of days.

Easy access to town by walking or be trolley/golf carts.The place is older, but over the past three years, I have seen many improvements. There is a bar in... More

We just spent the weekend at the Riverboat Inn. This is our third annual visit. I'd first like to comment on the staff: EVERYONE at the INN seemed to have our satisfaction first on their minds. Ask, and you receive. The property is old. That gives it a certain "quaintness". But it also must drive the staff crazy, trying to... More

We loved our night in this little inn! What a great find. It was clean and the end keepers were very friendly. There is a deck behind the main hotel that faces the river with views of the bridge, They have a fireplace going in the evening and plenty of lawn furniture for everyone. The night we were there on... More

Very clean and quaint. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Felt like we were staying with family. We were on our motorcycle and the... More

We had planned a family gathering in Madison and were looking for a space that could accommodate several adults and several children. The Riverboat has these cottages away from the main hotel area that can accommodate a large group such as ours. The location is good, close to the river and the downtown attractions. However, the conditions of the cottages... More

Quiet, clean, and great staff. Kathy and her crew run the best hotel in Madison. The location is perfect and the amenities are top notch. Looking forward to my next visit. Better than your usual chain hotel.
