First off I will say this,do NOT stay here unless you like a dirty room and bathroom. Our bathroom was dirt every single day we got off work! The carpet was NEVER vacuumed the whole week we stayed here. Also the bathroom was never wiped down even after I complained twice and was told it would be cleaned! There are... More

We work construction and travel all over the United States,and this I must say is the Filthiest, broken doors,dark parking lot, bums asking for money, NO maid services, other than replacing towels, people walking into your room saying "sorry, wrong room" loitering, etc the list could go on an on for a weekly rate of 313.60 that was non refundable...

Dead bugs, stained carpet, walls, towels & bedding. Kicked in door frames with non working locks, no security lighting & a very dark balcony with stairs in the back that leads right up to the rooms sliding glass doors. Did I mention broken locks? Popular hotel for prostitutes, drug addicts, creepy truckers, serial killers & undocumented people. This place needs... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. I rented three rooms for my crew for a week. The rooms are not much to look at from the outside, but are large, well furnished and most important they are clean! The shower heads are the best! They loaned us a BBQ pit, they furnish you anything you need and work their... More

Iwas reading the other reviews and can't believe this is the same motel. We experience none of these problems. Our room was spacious, quiet, and clean. The back door opened right out to the river area where you could sit in the cool evening. I was disappointed they no longer served the free breakfast as advertised, the woman at the... More

We felt like refugees. This is a very old motel that seems more focussed on monthly rentals for people who work in the area. There was only one other car in the area where our room was located. The facility is quite tired and our room was in desperate need of a cleaning although it was quite spacious.

I made a reservation at this hotel last year for my family to stay in while we went to see the beautiful lights on the Cane River at Christmastime. We checked in and were told that our room was actually in a room across the highway from the main building (shown in the pictures). I was leery and then we... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here on our drive from Dallas to New Orleans. The room was extremely dirty, stains on .. everything, fork in the sink drain and a nasty stain on the sheet. Did not see any bug but I am sure they were there, this was quite disgusting. We should have left and stayed somewhere else, but... More

We spent several days at the River View Inn during Hurricane Gustav. Even though the rooms are dated, they are quite LARGE (much bigger than is typical with more modern hotels). This was exactly what we needed because we evacuated with 5 cats (and had to set up all their individual, collapsible cages in the room). The rooms were so... More
