My husband and I were pleasantly surprised, the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. We usually would stay at the Inn at Presque Isle but since they tore it down we wanted a motel that had the same kind of feel and the Riviera does. It is a relaxed atmosphere and is very close to the... More

I have stayed here for about 5 yrs. It's time to put some money back into the property. A good paint job inside & out. The carpet needs a good scrub, all my socks have been thrown away due to the black stains. Looks like I wore them outside all day. Every employee I came in contact with was extremely... More

My buddy and I got locked out right before midnight, the lock in the room allows an occupant to lock the door from inside and still be able to turn the handle, without disengaging the lock. That's how our last smoke before bed, turned out to be a three hours long, frozen ordeal. Went to the office for help. To... More

Cute place, very close to Presque Isle. Rented a double bed room. It was tiny, but it had everything that we needed.(Refrigerator) It was clean, the mattress was firm and comfortable. Wireless internet was a bit slow. The bathroom was tiny too but the water was hot and water pressure was great. Sure, there was some peeling paint and some... More

We stayed at this motel for a couple of nights. It is an older property, but they have been updating all of the rooms. The location is excellent because there are several restauants just down the street and there is also a bar and grill located just across the street. We stayed two seperate nights so we had two different... More

We stayed here during a wild snowstorm. The room was big and comfy and the deck clerk was very friendly. The price was excellent and they had plowed the driveway before we woke up. The Oasis Pub was nearby for a bite to eat and some drinks. Not the best pub but any port in a storm! This is a... More
