Upon arrival the clerk was the most friendliest person I've ever met in a hotel/motel business. We have 2 small dogs that he also made friends with. Our room was large very clean and the pool was just as equally wonderful. Anybody traveling threw you should deffinatley give them a try. We were very impressed

5 star Management & Staff @ a fraction of the price. I travel the Nation as a Wind Turbine Technician and The Riviera Inn & Suites, Riviera, TX is setting the bar high vs. the competitors I've stayed with. Expect to be greeted with a smile, and treated like a dignitary. The rooms are kept in outstanding condition, with perks... More

I will say, the clerk was very nice and helpful, and the room was overall clean and secure. Otherwise, the place was not good. The electronic locks weren't working on the doors, so the clerk had to escort me to my room with a master key any time I had to re-enter. I couldn't find the remote for the TV.... More

As a truck driver I have been here many times, with the prior owners (eeww) and now the new owners. The rooms are much better than before, clean and yes coffee - not from prior customers. It was nice to see the new owners making some changes to make the rooms look the way they should.

No toilet paper, dead bugs on the floor, only one towel and one washcloth in a double room, and the bathroom floor was filthy. There was a coffee maker, but no coffee pot or coffee pods. The racks from the refrigerator were piled on the sink. The pillows were so thin that you might as well not have one at... More

We didn't have any running water at check-in. (they are building a restaraunt & had the water cut off) Our room had a coffee pot that still had old coffee in it from the previous guest, with the used coffee grounds, but no packaged coffee for us. No internet (the clerk said a guest had stolen the wire), no breakfast... More
