I have been coming to this hotel for several years for scrapbook weekends. The hotel owner is nice, friendly and aims to meet your needs. This trip, we stayed in the new addition and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is basic and clean. A basic continental style breakfast is provided in the morning. I love that the hotels hosts these...

The hotel was very clean and the staff extremely friendly, nice variety of foods for the continental breakfast. Would definitely stay there again. The pool was warm and plenty of pool toys provided for the kids to play with.

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...
