My wife and I stayed here on an overnight on the way home from the Twin Cities. We found the facility to be very nice, not at all like the other reviews on this site. While we were only there from late at night until early in the morning, the front desk and room staff were friendly and helpful, the... More

We attended another event at this location. Checked into our room and noticed the spills on the bed and the floor. Looks like if room service had taken the time to actually remove and wash the sheet, it wouldn't have been as bad. I did attach a picture of it. We turned the heating unit on (looked like and A/C...

This is a terrible hotel. The rooms are dirty and smell. The staff is rude and seriously lack basic customer service skills. The pool and hot tub are frightening. Words cannot describe how bad this place really is.

We have just done a deep cleaning on all the rooms, and also took care of the water smell. The pool and hot were just refinished and looking new. We are under a million dollar renovation. More

The grounds for this hotel was nice and scenic. The room was OK- spacious and laid out well with two sinks, one inside the bathroom and one right outside. That being said, the room was outdated, but tolerable. What wasn't tolerable was the cleanliness. On first glance it looks OK, but during the first few minutes in the room we... More

Room was obviously outdated. Water smelled very bad, but thankfully we brought water to drink. The hot tub didn't have a filter in it. Room was crazy hot. Had to air turned on as high as possible and still felt nauseous. The view from our room was gorgeous, but that was about it. The faucet in the shower really needed... More

Well where do I start? My wife and I were there to attend a family wedding which was to take place on a Saturday of course so we decided to get there on Friday afternoon to relax a bit before hand. According to their website they have dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. After an eight hour drive from illinois... More

This is a wonderful hotel, in a very natural and very peaceful environment. I happened upon it by chance, because I didn't want to stay downtown St. Cloud again. It is right on the river, and has a pasture of goats outside. Lots of outdoor space to sit and eat or just enjoy the peace and quiet. My room was... More

My husband and I had reservations to stay at the Riverwood Inn 9/8-9/9. From the road and the initial drive in the place looks beautiful......but that's where the good review ends. The woman at the front desk was nice but didn't give us any heads up about the restaurant being closed, pool hours, where to find yard games (they have... More

We stayed here for a 4 day shopping/golf trip with friends. First the positives: it's affordable, a convenient location, quiet, the grounds are well maintained, and our bed was comfortable. Common areas to socialise were available and comfortable. However, the place is quite old and showing it's age. Carpets are worn, paint needs touch up, hallways had a distinctive moldy... More

Booked for one night after a shopping layover in Albertville. Beautiful scenic drive from the outlet mall to the hotel. We were quite impressed by the inviting exterior of the inn as well as the views around the property. Lobby area was very nice as well...but that's where the positive ends. Room and hallways were laughable they were so run... More
