Husband and I decided to go to Madison for a weekend getaway. We had never been there. Found Riverboat Inn & Suites on Tripadvisor. So happy we did. Our room was in the Pilot House. 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.

Great stay in downtown Madison. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Staff was excellent and very accommodating. The main inn offers an excellent view of the river, and the bar/lounge area is perfect for unwinding. Highly recommend this hotel for all business/leisure travel when visiting Madison, IN.

Had looked at several options for lodging and really wanted something close to the river and found this jewel. Staff was so friendly and accommodating. We were unable to get a river view room but still enjoyed the extensive outdoor patios. We loved that they had a bar in their lounge and a musician on the patio both nights we... More

Cool rooms, nice bar, view you could spend all night staring at. Live music was excellent, couple local (IN) brews available at bar which is a nice touch. Hotel grounds are beautiful, saw several people with fancy cameras taking lots of pics. Stay out after dark and chase lightning bugs like a kid again.

This hotel has the best view of the Ohio river! - And the best staff, accommodations, and atmosphere! Each room is done a bit differently-very homey and comfortable. Two very large decks with comfy furniture and fire pits overlook the Ohio river and there's live music on Friday and Saturday nights. A small bar offers cold beer and libations plus... More

My wife and I stayed there during the River Roots music festival. We stayed in the PaddleWheel building, and found it neat, clean, and well-situated. The owner and staff go out of their way to make sure your stay is a good one. They even shuttled us back and forth to the festival in golf carts, and kept the bar... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Paddle Wheel facility over the weekend. It was so relaxing! The room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the view. We were able to walk to the Key West Shrimp restaurant and enjoy a great meal. Afterwards we walked to the Riverboat Inn for drinks and great music by the fire. The view... More
