Room was small and the bad smell hit us like a ton of bricks when we opened the door. Dog barked all day and night next door. Breakfast was nasty. Bathroom was old and dirty. Mold, spots on ceiling and just gross. I would sleep in my car before staying there again

We spent one night at the Riverboat Inn while visiting relatives, and it was great. The hotel is charming, such a change from the cookie cutter hotels that are found more commonly. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a very large double queen room with pretty decor--quilted bedspreads that looked very homey and other nice touches.... More

We come at least 4 time's a year I love how they treat you like family and always something changed in decor. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The patio is amazing and live local music on weekends. Stayed in many different rooms and 1 of the other buildings but the main hotel is my favorite. Just to sit out and... More

We had a group of six couples. Riverboat Inn put us in three condos located near the main building. The rooms were comfortable and clean. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. The atmospher was great for the fall time of the year. There was live music, a nice fire pit, and a great view of the river from... More

We stayed last weekend and had the suite on the second floor of the main building. This room is so nice. King bed with fireplace and tv, separate living area with tv and fireplace, private back balcony with table and chairs. The view of the Ohio River in front was beautiful and the veranda/deck is nicely furnished and very comfy.... More

Finding a reasonably priced locally-owned hotel that had charm and a view was the challenge. What a view we found! On the Ohio River side of the hotel, the lawn swoops down to the river drive and a fabulous view of the bridge, barges, and green Kentucky on the far side. There are plenty of tables and chairs where you... More

The Riverboat Inn is one of the friendliest places we have ever stayed. The entire staff from Kathy, the owner, on make you feel like part of the family. The view of the river is beautiful. The front of the hotel has lots of decks with chairs, tables patio heaters etc. They also enclose a large portion of the deck... More

You go to Madison, Indiana for a authentic small town, main street USA, step back in time experience. In Madison, you should enhance that experience by staying in a locally owned quaint Inn. Upon arrival any stress you had is instantly gone. The view of the river is beautiful and calming. You feel at home not only with the friendly... More

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
