If I were thinking of staying here, please pick another hotel. Me and my daughter just stayed here over the July 4th weekend. This hotel was crawling with police. the K-9 unit was here. I know the police was here 5 or 6 times in two days. The staff makes you purchase your towels for $5.00 to go down to... More

We recently stayed at the Geneva Riverside, we have stayed at this motel many times over the years. We drive over 300 miles each way to get there. With many stays having groups of friends with us. Over the years we have seen huge improvements made with constructing the Tiki Bar and regarding the motel rooms themselves.. not so much.... More

Did stay 2 nights because of having made a reservation. The stay was for sentimital reasons. If I had known....Door handle was very loose. Thank goodness for the deadbolt. No phones in the rooms and no bars on cell phone. Spotty reception through out the valley. The riverside rooms mean your front door is on the same side and the... More

We were there for a stop on a NC bike trip. The Tiki bar was great. The room was a little shabby but it was fine for 1 night. Would go back or a bike trip but not for a long term trip. The tiki bar was the best part.
