We stumbled upon this place and are sure glad that we did. The location is not only convenient but offers a nice view of the water. Our room was clean and everything was in working order. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. Would definitely stay again!

This place is a dump. Paid over $130 for a non-river view. The rooms are old. I know it was not cleaned very well b/c there was a Graham cracker underneath my bed. The lamp was dusty. The carpet is disgusting and filthy. The bathroom floor was slippery weird. This room should not be $130, more like $50. The front... More

My husband and I stayed at this motel for a night away without the kids. We were looking for something relatively cheap near the Little River Casino and only paid $99 for the room. We had a single queen room and it served it's purpose as somewhere to just sleep. The room was very small, but clean and neat with... More

Absolutely charming we came for the Hops and Props in Manistee. So happy we chose the Riverside Motel the room was clean had a view of the lake and was pet friendly too for a great value! I would highly recommend this to anyone beats the Traverse city prices and not far from there. Bryan was very friendly and helpful.

Just stayed here over Labor Day Weekend. I booked the room a few months ago and felt like I was taking a gamble because the room was inexpensive and the motel didn't have a website. Based on the previous reviews it didn't seem so bad. I loved it! The whole place has been recently remodeled. The owner/innkeeper Bryan was super... More

First time in Manistee in over 30 years, and I tracked the Riverside Motel down online. We were in town to see a concert at the Little River Casino, and wanted to stay in town for the entertainment opportunities. The motel is a quaint, old style "up north" kind of place, and we absolutely loved it. Like most motel properties,... More

Wonderful "up north" experience. Great location overlooking the river on the boardwalk. We were able to walk downtown for lunch and down to Lake Michigan to go swimming. We had a nice room that opened on the river with a picnic table and personal gas grill. The room offered a mini-refrigerator and microwave. The carpet seemed newer and the room... More

TINY, and DIRTY. Asked for new sheets within first 2 minutes due to hair and all sorts of debris on under the pillows. Shower dark, dirty with a ton of mold all over the shower curtain. Asked if we could get money back and go somewhere else but you apparently pay in advance so no luck there. We stayed with... More
