Me and just about everyone in my family has stayed at this hotel. It's a pretty plain hotel, but is very nice. It does offer an indoor and now a outdoor pool. If you book on a off season date you can usually get really great prices. The location is really good. The rooms are very clean and bathrooms are... More

First visit at this hotel and probably the last. We stayed at River Bend in December and when we first checked in we were greeted by a very friendly young lady. The motel was cleaner than some but lots of wasted space in the rooms. Dim lighting, child size uncomfortable pillows, sheets didn't fit the beds and the bedspreads and... More

We have stayed here a number of times because it is very inexpensive during the off season which is when we usually go. We had a chance to make an unplanned trip right after Christmas and we were able to get a room here. This place is NOT fancy and is somewhat dated. However, they have made several improvements since... More

My husband booked this hotel after the hotel we usually stay at had higher than normal rates. I did not like the fact the hotel was going to charge more for a room with a balcony. After checking in, we were given room 109 on the first floor. When you walked in the room, it had a bad smell, like... More

This was our fifth visit to this hotel but our last. Cannot believe how it has gone down. Our reservation was not correct, but they did move us to the correct room. TV would not pickup certain channels, my favorite, and we were given some excuse about that. The bed did not have a fitted sheet and did not fit... More

Please don't waste your money on this place. We stopped to check-in around 6-6:30pm before going to dinner, so not to have a late arrival. 1st - I had to pry the front doors open to even get to the lobby....thinking they were just off track or something, nope, just didn't work. We did NOT go to the room, only... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. A friend recommended this hotel. I have no idea why now. I paid extra to have a room with a kitchenette. The room we were given had beds that were so hard it was like laying on cement. We complained and were told we could move rooms. They moved us to the first floor,... More

We stayed in this motel on recommendation from another motel with no vacancy. We were greeted with friendly check in staff . Room was a pleasant surprise after staying in several area motels we didn't expect much but room was extremely clean. The room had no unpleasant smell like you find in many area rooms so that was a definite... More

We were just in town for couple days for Christmas lights and shopping. This hotel was great for the price. Only needed someplace to lay our head but was pleasantly surprised. Good breakfast and small but clean indoor pool area. I would definitely use this hotel the next time we are in town.

We never use a motel much except for a place to relax after a long day. I have to say, second time staying here and is still a great place to stay for the value. Only issue is the WiFi, it is spotty in some of the motel. Not a big deal but have had to go to certain parts... More
