My sister and I stayed at Riverside for a few days, for a family reunion. She made these reservations, because she knows how I love old historic hotels. Upon arrival, we walked through the front door and looked around the lobby area, which was done up very nice and welcoming. We were given our room keys and we went and... More

I live in Baltimore. Cambridge Springs Pa was a 7 hour trip up. A trip I almost didn't take when I learned of the distance. But I was convinced to go by a very effective member of their staff. And I do not regret one minute of it. The original building went up in 1885 in this small town. Today... More

I highly recommend a visit to this place, either for lunch or dinner or as a place to stay overnight. We went there for lunch. The quality and quantity of food were very good. The waitress was friendly, professional and efficient. The hotel has a very interesting history. The eating area is spacious. You should check it out on the... More

This beautiful mid-19th century former spa resort is perfect for an unusual, relaxing, pleasant get-away. The Inn is packed with antiques in every room and hallway, all of the rooms are Victorian, and all are different. The room amenities are minimal, but that is part of the charm! You feel a little like you are living in the past, but... More

This is always a highlight of any trip to the Cambridge Springs area for me. It's a gracious old hotel that's been in continuous operation since the 1880s. For awhile it had slipped somewhat with new owners but with the old owners taking over again, it's once more a jewel of a place. You step back in time to the... More

People traveled there by rail, (4 trains a day). Today one hotel stands in the town where there were once 4. The town only has 1 stop light but the Riverside Inn has... More

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.

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
