Stayed two nights Oct 2014. A little run down in room we stayed in chairs were torn and stained. Older, small TV. Room was very clean and staff was mostly very friendly. Night audit was not unfriendly, but never said a word the 5 times we crossed paths( I guess that would be unfriendly). Breakfast was average. I am positive... More

Good solid hotel. Clean, comfortable, cute, and an accommodating staff. Decorated theme rooms...we were in the aviation room and it was cute. Nothing fancy, but the rates are too good to complain. Good breakfast with cereal, juice, coffee, bakery pastries and waffles. Wish they would have had fruit. Located right on the public access to the horseshoe. Very convenient for... More

We stayed at the Riverside Inn over the weekend when we were in town for a wedding, Our room was quite large and we appreciated the microwave and the refrigerator. The staff was warm and welcoming and the free breakfast made for a good start to the morning. My only request would be that they provide whole wheat bread in... More

First, the good things: Soft water and good water pressure Spacious clean room Now for the not so good thing: The bed was not comfortable and there was some kind of plastic mattress protector on it because we were sweating while sleeping.

Our second stay here and the experience has been consistent. We will definitely stay again, partially because of the good experience and partially due to the limited available lodging options in this area. Pros: clean rooms, reasonable rates, Free wi-fi, friendly staff, convenient to Richmond/Cold Spring area, breakfast items from the famous Cold Spring bakery. Micro and fridge in room... More

My friends and I spent this past weekend at the Riverside Inn. We usually have a relaxing getaway twice a year, and the atmosphere is perfect. The staff is very courteous, and the themed rooms add a homelike quality. My favorite part of our stay is the poolside continental breakfast - the large windows overlook the Sauk River for an...

My wife and I have stayed at the Riverside Inn several times since the DeRose's took ownership in 2003. We always appreciate the friendliness and personalized service. Any requests that we have made have always been met promptly and courteously. We enjoy the "themed" rooms that make it feel like home. The pool and whirlpool are always clean and relaxing... More

I've stayed at Riverside Inn numerous times, including this past weekend, and have found it to be a perfectly wonderful place to stay. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the rooms exceptionally clean. The entire building is very clean and well maintained. The staff asked several times per day if there was anything I needed in my room.... More

I reserved this hotel over the phone for my family. We spent the night of August 27th, 2011 in the Lincoln room 103. The hotel is old and smells like it. The room cost me 95.00 with the roll away, the room was awful. It was damp and sticky, we literally stuck to the sheets. We turned the air on,... More

riversidebunny, Owner at Riverside Inn, responded to this review

We are sorry "Avoid this motel" was dissatisfied with their stay and I, as the owner and CEO, apologize for the frustrations they encountered. A letter of apology and a gift certificate was promptly issued once I learned of their disatisfaction. The August night they stayed was incredibly hot and humid and unfortunately our new staff did not turn on... More
