I was in town for a concert at the casino. I checked into the hotel at 9pm, and did not immediately go to the room because we (my friend and I) were already 20 minutes late for the concert. When the concert ended and we finally got to the room, we walked in and saw a huge spider on our... More

This was my second visit to Riverside. The room was clean and the people were nice. We love the fact that we are right on the river. My son fished right outside my room. The room was affordable and I will be back.

The rooms smelled like cigarette smoke even though they were non smoking rooms. The bed sheets had stains all over them and there was still hair on the pillows from where someone before. We decided to change motels and when we asked for our money back they tried to charge us a return fee of 5%. We refused to pay... More

Although the motel was older, it was clean and convenient to all the sights we wanted to visit in the area. The first floor rooms have parking directly in front of the door to the room, which is great for carrying in luggage. The balcony hangs over the river where you could talk to the trout fishermen, watch the people... More

This is a small motel it's older but clean and well run. We had a nice quiet and relaxing time. The river is right outside your door it was nice to see poeple fishing. My husband went to the casino it was about a 10 minute ride.

Family of four stayed two nights. Excellent location near the park and on the river. Woman at the front desk was professional and very helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Wi-Fi worked well. Bathroom small but clean with everything working as expected. Only downside was the rate - somewhat pricey with no breakfast.

Don't let the initial site of the place scare you. The owners are super friendly and funny. The rooms are very basic and simple but very clean. My original hotel reservation was cancelled at the last minute had an 85 year old mom and 3 dogs to find lodging for and was panicked they gave me numbers of a few... More

I had called while a few hours away. Patty at the desk took our reservation without question, and when I called to follow-up she assured us that our stay was reserved. She told us not to trust our GPS, and she was right. Told us to call if we needed clearer directions which we did! The room was clean, not... More

We stayed here one night. It was a good room, not fancy but comfortable. The suite room I had was on the bottom floor, had two beds in two rooms, and French doors that opened up looking on the water. Tubers floated by and a lot of ducks. Too bad it's illegal to fish from the room because you certainly... More

Nothing fancy, but they more than make up for it with cleanliness and hospitality. The location is convenient and the motel itself is right next to the water. Quiet, peaceful. The kids tubed in the water right outside the room. The staff who run the motel are so friendly. You feel like you are being treated like a guest in... More
