We were disappointed with our accomodation on this stay at the River Lodge. The staff and the breakfast were great as was the rate, but the room was in need of some TLC. The window crank was broken, the noise from the hallway and exit was disturbing, and the room smelled of mildew.

Simple accommodations. Clean. Small breakfast. Most small hotels agree simple and clean. Nice place to stay if you are hunting or fishing and won't be in the room to long. Most rooms she two double beds and a frigerator.

Cookie on arrival. Friendly staff, Ron was very helpful. The room was very clean and roomy with refrigerator and microwave. Breakfast was good. We only stayed the one night as we were passing through. Very good value not over expensive. Would recommend.

This is not a fancy place but the rooms are comfortable and have nice amenities such as refrigerator and microwave. The front desk guy (Mr. Fabulous) was a stitch and very welcoming. Happy employees are generally a sign of solid management that knows how to treat their... More

Room was clean and beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows. Paid a decent price due to hunting season but totally worth it. Felt safe and would love to come back. Breakfast had eggs, sausage, yogurt waffles and a lot more. Definitely recommend to anyone.

I've stayed here several times and I really dont have anything bad to say about the place. The price is very good, service is fine and the rooms are clean. Nothing fancy but a good place to lay your head after a long day.
