Not much from the outside but the rooms are up-dated, large and clean. Friendly staff. I stayed there while attending a dog show at the Expo Center. Very dog friendly, good potty area. In a good part of town. Safe for two elderly women to stay. Will come again.

Don't judge a book by it's cover! This fits really well here. The website pictures are not updated and room have a new look, newer furniture, new TV and new bedding and drapes! This is the only place away from home that I have stayed at and slept so well. Woke up refreshed, not sore and had a great nite... More

From the outside,the property looks very ordinary,but my first floor only room near the saltwater pool was excellent and pretty large--more like a suite for about 70 bucks total.On the property,there is an excellent Thai restaurant that was delicious.Behind the property,is the river which adds some flavor to the place.The owners were extremely nice--gave me extra pillows and pool towels...very...

We had several days of business in the area (Temple, Belton, Salado) and really could not get in to our regular but okay hotels. So we thought give River Forest a try. First the lady that took the reservation was cordial and accommodating. Then when we showed up, the hotel looked a bit tired, but so were we. The young... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was outstanding. Great to travel with children. I could watch my 12 year old child from my hotel window. Hotel not fancy but it was very clean. I do not believe you could find a better, cleaner hotel at this price point. Excellent stay, we will be staying here again. Excellent... More

It was ugly, dirty, outdated, and the "owner" (he claimed he owned the place, at least) was condescending, which was odd for such a dump of a place. It looks bad from the outside and only gets worse once you've seen it up close. The location is convenient, but that is the best one can say.

Hi Eric, Our parking lot is for guest vehicles only. Since you did not stay with us, nor were you related to a guest, I asked you to remove your vehicles. Unfortunately, this is a motel policy. I'm sorry if this was inconvenient for you. More

We stayed there one night. The Clerk was cheery and all. We asked for the aarp price but she did better...we got one night for $55! They have a lot of rooms but not many folks staying there. I would guess maybe 10 or so folks and 45+ rooms. Our room was ok. It was clean. We had to plug... More

Wife & I had a great time at this hotel. Can't beat the value for money. They are professional and courteous. I liked their awesome salt water pool the best. They keep it sparkling clean and it was very refreshing to take a dip. They don't make pools like this one anymore. The "expanded continental" breakfast is worth it as... More

We went to Belton for a funeral. I had previously looked at all the reviews of all the hotels in Belton and decided to give this one a shot. When we arrived and pulled up by the pool, to check out the layout of the place, a man in a silver prius pulled up to see what we were doing.... More

I have mixed emotions about this motel next to I35 in Belton. The man at the front desk was extremely nice. They accepted my special needs dog although he was larger than their under 35 lb requirement. It costs $10 more for the dog and there is a refundable $50 deposit. The room was quite adequate but had a noticeable... More
