We were traveling home and picked this hotel to stay over the night. We have a dog so our choices can be limited. We looked at the rooms on line and read some descriptions. It seemed like a good choice. We stayed in a king room that was not renovated. (#278) So it was a bit of a disappointment to... More

My wife and I stayed three nights - but were not in the hotel much in the daytime. Lobby is fresh and inviting with a faux fireplace. Desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. Renovation work going on outside. All of the reunions' rooms were renovated. We had room 112. Average to large size. Two queen beds, microwave and fridge.... More

This used to be a nice HoJo or some other hotel a few years ago, but has been sold and is now undergoing renovation by the Cobblestone folks. They have signage in the lobby saying they are undergoing renovation, but offered no discount because of it. I didn't see any note on the website indicating renovation. It might have been... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Boarders Inn & Suites. The renovation is still in progress. The common areas are complete and the fascade should be done within a couple weeks. Unfortunately due to our size and the time of year we did have to postpone taking anymore rooms down. We will continue the renovation on the sleeping... More

My favorite part of this hotel is the POOL/ hot tub! Kid and family friendly for sure! Staying at "Borders Inn" aka: Riverside, is like staying at grandma's house! I have made so many great memories there! It has changed names many times, but only recently have I seen change in the way the building is being taken care of... More

We had to stay at this hotel because all others were full in town, it was the worst experience ever. When we arrived the lobby looked nice and we knew the rooms were under construction, little did we know our room would be so bad. There were pipes hanging down from the ceiling that should not have been exposed. Our... More

Very disappointing, the entry way was in no way a representation of the room. We had a room with two queen beds. There was barely any room to get around. For the size of the room itself it should only have had one queen bed :( One of the beds was only about three feet from the heating unit so... More

Marci we appreciate your feedback during your stay. The queen rooms are meant to have 2-4 people otherwise, yes it would be a little too crowded. We have taken your feedback to Denny's so they can better serve our guests as well. More
