Thank you for your review. As you mentioned, you started packing your vehicle to depart at 11:10am and as noted on registration slip, room directory, and the back of all room doors, our check-out time is 11:00am. This is to accommodate other guests checking in at our check-in time of 2pm. What is also noted is that contacting the front... More

We looked at all the properties in Brookings and settled on this one after reading reviews as well as responses to those reviews from the owners. Nice place to stay, very convenient to anywhere you may want to go in Brookings. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The owner made a great recommendation for dinner. Overall, a very pleasant... More

We've stayed at Wild Rivers twice and like the location, room size and friendly staff. Ask for a room in the rear of the property as there is road noise. The rooms are large and for the most part recently renovated. It's location is in the middle of town and I walked in both directions in the mornings and felt... More

Room was reasonably priced, but not for the room we got assigned. Sign said new beds. Not new at all. AC did not cool at all. Manager offered up another room but it was no better. Should have looked at room first before taking it. Oscillating fan in the room. Not a good sign. Top sheet had a huge stain... More

Stopped for night, needed pet friendly. Old school with real keys. On main road, convenient access. Ask for room near the back to cut road noise. Near to shopping. Clean, friendly, good price. Got job done. Would stay again especially with pet.

Our pet friendly rooms are one of our selling points and we pride ourselves in keeping them as clean as any other room, particularly with the hard wood floors and area rugs. Certainly road noise can be an issue especially in the summer months, but we have seen... More
