We enjoyed our stay at the riverside so much. Rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and extremely clean. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Location is exceptional; walking distance to shops, restaurants, marginal way with breathe taking views from your room & decks. Owners take pride in their motel and it shows. You won't go wrong staying at that the Riverside Motel in... More

My husband and I have been coming to the Riverside Motel for many years. We discovered this gem, right on Perkins Cove, by accident. Unlike some of the other motels, this one is quiet, and not having a pool, caters more to adult couples. Breakfast can be eaten on the porch outside the office, which is very pleasant. Only a...

Thank you for letting the T/A readers everywhere that our "whole motel is in need of an update". Probably you also inspected the 20 units that were completely remodeled last year before you voiced that comment. I also wish you had let us known that your room was a 3 out of 5 in cleanliness, because I would have loved... More

We have stayed here for the past 6 years as it is peaceful and beautiful. What I miss most though is that we don't get to see Geoff anymore (the owner) which made it feel like we were coming to our second home. However, his staff is very congenial and makes us feel welcome.

The motel has a wonderful location, the rooms were clean, but has no frills. Nowhere to purchase snacks, only sodas. Could easily hear people in the middle of the night walking around above me. I noticed that maids were still cleaning rooms after 3:00pm with people checking in and told their rooms were not yet ready. I didn't stay for... More

Please understand that The Riverside is only a motel. The rooms are small and very dated but the location is great. It sits on Perkins Cove and is accessible by a footbridge. The stores are fair at best but the restaurants are good and just a walk away. It also gives easy access to the Marginal Way. Be prepared to... More

We love the Riverside and always tell our friends and acquaintances about it. Our last visit (May 31 - June 5) was perfect even though the weather was not so great for the first 3 days. The grounds are gorgeous, our room perfect and kept so very clean, the view was spectacular from our room, and the staff, as always,... More

The rooms are always clean and the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Late in the day I asked for more orange juice and the employee brought me a glass. We love sitting on the deck enjoying the covera and ocean views. Nancy's flowers are always so beautiful. There are a good number of restaurants within walking distance at Perkins Cove... More

The staff are outstanding and the owners are welcoming and attentive to guests needs. Sitting on the balcony with the view of the Cove and the ocean and the fishing boats is a bit of heaven. A short walk to Marginal Way and another breathtaking experience. The rooms are clean and inviting (altho the fridge did tend to freeze items... More

I have always called The Riverside "A Little Bit of Heaven" Geoff and Nancy have created something very special! There is nothing better, than sitting on the porch with friends, enjoying a glass of wine, soaking in the view, and trying to decide which great restaurant to go to across "The Footbridge". We're always looking forward to the next visit!
