We stayed for the weekend, about 20 of us rented 5 rooms. The rooms were huge, more like an apartment. Each had 2 bedrooms one with a Queen, the other with 2 twins and a cot. The living area had a couch (that pulled out to a bed) and a chair, and the dining area had a table with enough... More

Hi, This is not a resort really and the price reflects that correctly. All facilities listed do exist on site, but extremely basic and DIY looking. The rooms are motel style with door opening to outside, so there is a cold draft in the living/dining area. The sleeping sofa in the living area is not really usable for an adults... More

Hotel is very close to Sunday river. Offers big rooms, some with decks overlooking the river. The kitchen has the necessities, rooms are basic and clean. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. We didn't expect anything fancy, the indoor pool and hot tub were great after a day of skiing. There was a sauna which we didn't use, a ping... More

This is not somewhere u stay if you care about decor. You stay here because u want to ski at Sunday River and don't want to drive for a long time to get there and don't want to spend a ton of money to do so. And if, like us, you don't plan to spend much time in the room.... More

I had a pleasant stay at River View Resort. From my arrival to checkout, staff members were friendly and helpful, accommodating all my needs. The room was clean and had a warm feel to it. Also, there was a kitchen and refrigerator in the room, which was a plus. For people looking for a place to stay during a trip... More

The place is cozy, like staying at someone else's home- very comfortable and welcoming. the accommodations were clean and very spacious. The customer service was incredible, the woman who runs the joint was helpful and friendly from beginning to end. We followed their advice on where to eat, what to do, etc. They are located halfway between town and the... More

We are two retired couples presently at the River View Resort . We are very happy with our accommodations. Our unit is not luxurious but it is very comfortable, clean, and plenty large enough for 4 adults. We have two large bedrooms with comfortable beds and a good sized common area with enough seating that we don't feel crowded. The... More

We stayed at the River View Resort in Bethel, ME on our trip to see fall foliage. The customer service is outstanding, but I had to give it an "average" rating because it is an older property that definitely needs updating. You actually cannot see the river because of the cornfields and trees behind it even though the web site... More

We booked five nights in August but not until mid summer did we start looking for places to stay. When we found the River View Resort at a price that was reasonable we thought it would suit our needs...and it did! The property is an RCI facility and has seen a lot of business over the years. It may need... More
