Let me start off by saying I didn't stay the night here, I only ate in the dining room. The food was great and the atmosphere is really cool. It feels like you're transported back in time. After we ate we wandered around inside and outside the property. No one bugged us or anything, overall a nice experience.

Great area to visit, They have a very good dinner theater in the summer. Other than that there is not much to do at the Hotel it's self. Easy driving distance to Edinboro, Meadville and Erie. Could stay here and go to the Casino in Erie The restaurant has a Sunday brunch that is over priced and just ok, a... More

This is beautiful old hotel, but it's not for everyone. Each room is different, so each review is unique. We stayed over a weekend, when it was hot and sticky. The common areas aren't air conditioned, so they weren't terribly comfortable. Also sitting out on the patio at night wasn't a lot of fun due to the weather, but would... More

My stitching group has been coming here twice a year for several years now. The staff is wonderful, the grounds beautiful, and the atmosphere relaxing. The restaurant menu is delicious and the staff accommodates special requests. I stay on the second floor and am told the rooms on the first floor aren't quite as pretty. The only drawbacks, which I... More

This is a charming, old hotel. Beautifully kept up and maintained. I loved the huge wrap-around porch and rocking chairs. We went during the winter, so it was very quiet and peaceful. Room was small, but comfortable. Would highly recommend.

The Riverside is a slice of history. A living museum, of sorts. You get the feeling of being away from it all. Kind of like if you were to go to a Pocono resort back in the day. If you want to escape with your SO for a romantic, fun weekend or overnight, I recommend the Medieval feast and room... More

I have been to The Riverside Inn before experiencing their dinner theater venue. I have to say, this stay was fantastic. The price included overnight accommodations, dinner theater event and breakfast the next morning. Actors were outstanding (comedy that was unbelievable) and the food really tasty (and, a lot of food. Waiters even supply doggie bags.). The rooms are all... More

Riverside inn is a very comfortable and entertainment complex. Besides being a Hotel, they serve excellent meals and offer dinner theater. We were allowed to visit all the areas and was very impressed at their collection of memorabilia . Plan on returning just to relax in such a quiet and quaint surrounding.

We stayed at the historic Victorian Inn for a relaxing overnight following their Dinner Theatre package.The inn has tastefully decorated rooms, all different, on three floors (no elevator). There are no phones or TVs in the rooms to create a step back in time.. The living room, dining rooms, grand veranda with lots of chairs, garden areas, and outdoor pool... More
