Large, well appointed room; excellent view. Flaws (but insufficient to undermine an "excellent" rating): shaving mirror too far from edge of sink; heating system with temperature gauge that under reported temperature by at least five degrees--63F was more like 68F. Convenient location for Brattleboro and Keene.

Woke up with a great view overlooking the river; Beautiful, large room, king bed, upscale furniture, decorations, hardwood floor. Gym is average and breakfast is continental without hot items. Relaxing sitting outside the balcony outside the lobby even if you don't have a private balcony room. Enjoyed our stay for two nights. Highly recommended.

My husband decided to surprise me for a quick weekend getaway prior to starting work again after the holidays. We had planned on visiting Keene, NH anyways, so he looked for a place to stay in this area. This stay was absolutely terrific! We were welcomed warmly at check in. Originally, we had a room on the third floor. Due... More

Customer service is always immediate. Your room is guaranteed to face the Connecticut River and is very quiet. You are less than 3 minutes from I 91, and only a few minutes from downtown Brattleboro Vt and about 25 minutes from Keene, NH. Rooms are spacious with wood flooring and flat screen televisions. Beds are sleep number with separate settings... More

This post is belated but I wanted to be sure to sing the praises of this hotel. My son goes to college in Vermont and this hotel is literally a bridge crossing from Brattleboro. It may not look like much from the website, but without a doubt this has to be the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. Wonderful... More

What a beautiful place! Our first visit to this part of VT/NH brought us to Riverside....the view out our balcony after a recent snowfall was magnificent. The luxury suite was beyond all expectations - the Furnishings, Brazilian Wood Floors, Sleep number beds - attention to detail was around every corner. Everyone associated with the hotel treated us as special guests.... More

The hotel location was very convenient, right off the highway (91). There were 3 of us, so we booked a corner room with a balcony...the room was spotless and very large...the view from the balcony was totally unexpected...very pretty lake/river surrounded by trees. The service was even better....we asked for extra pillows and blankets and the manager (Frank) brought them... More
