I have stayed many places and this is surely the worst hotel I have ever encountered. Most furniture in room was falling apart. It was the most dirtiest room I have ever stayed in. I am not a hard to please person,but I would avoid this place for sure. I have stayed in cleaner campgrounds,Room 130 was the absolute pits.... More

We booked Riverside only because all the major hotels were booked for graduation weekend. What a mistake!! The room was dank and musty smelling. A cockroach the size of my index finger greeted us, lying upside down on the dresser. A big old wood spider (alive) sat on the ceiling, staring down at us. A layer of dust sat behind... More

there are many old hotels in the country and this is one of them…OLD is tolerable, but, absolute disregard for cleaning is NOT…The rooms are very musty, and damp…The bath rooms are a total disgrace as it appears the cleaning crew does nothing more than merely beleives in changing out towels and no cleaning…disgusting is the only word I can...

Yes, it's a 2 star property but the price was right and it was close to were we wanted to be. The beds were just fine, AC unit cold. Coffee maker but no coffee in the room. TV was old and reception was poor.....but, we did not come to watch TV or drink coffee. Slept like a log. It was... More

We were a little apprehensive when we were on our way to this hotel. Paying less than £35 a night, ($50). We had always stayed in downtown Columbia before for convenience but the hotel we used then is no more, (Rodeway Inn on Main), and everything available there, hotels or airbnb was really expensive, so we picked the Riverside, (which...

My wife and I recently stayed a night at the Riverside Inn in Cayce, SC, while on a weekend road trip. Riverside Inn is clean and quiet. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family. Bed is a bit higher than normal, but comfortable after a day of driving. Shower is great! Lots of force and hot water!

The room was a bit smelly but endurable for $51.00. However, the bed was the second worst I have ever slept on in 45 years of travel. (The worst was in a foreign country). It was high and hard in the middle and lumpy on either side. When I mentioned it at check-out the next morning, the manager's remark was... More
