Worst experience I have ever had with a hotel. I was told first off I could check in at 12:00, had to wait till 1:00, to then get a room that smelled like urine and had feces on the towel. I checked out 1:30 after checking in for we left the room immediately, but when we returned is when all... More

By far the worst sleeping experience I have ever had in a hotel/motel and this a motel. Positives: The place is on the water, front desk staff were friendly, boiled eggs and coffee breakfast! Negatives: terrible bed and pillows- similar to sleeping on plastic and cardboard. The room smelled like mold and felt terribly unclean. They had a shower mat... More

We reserved the rooms for 2 nights, the front desk staff was AWESOME... the room we had smelled like urine as soon as you walked into the room. The beds are so uncomfortable and the housekeeping staff was very rude. Our check out time was 11 am she met us at the door at 8:30 am asking about all the... More

Booked a two night stay for business. The hotel was within easy walking distance to great restaurants and bars (including the busiest bar, High-Tides on the Potomac). Linda and Catherine at the front desk were extremely helpful and friendly. Michelle and Jennifer (I believe they are the owners) were wonderful. The rooms were clean and the maid service was spot-on.... More

The Rivers Edge Inn used to be a chain Motel that was pretty rough the last time I stayed there. They have since gone out on their own and the room I stayed in was updated , clean and had fast internet. The only complaint I have was that they are priced a little high for what they have ,... More

Booked a one-night stay in mid-November, and yes, I knew the water would be cold. In order of quality, these are the things I enjoyed most: 1. The view. If you book room 201 or 202 (on the river side), I'm pretty sure you won't regret the window view. We stayed on the second level for more privacy and silence.... More

Had a great time here at the River Edge Inn. Perfect location. Just a few minutes walk from multiple restaurants. Great staff and owners are always around making sure your stay is pleasant. Room was clean and smelled clean as well. Everything still looked new in the room, even though it has been over a year since they did renovations.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the River Edge Inn. Betty and Linda were great! The staff graciously distributed baskets to our out of town wedding guests as they checked in. The rooms were clean and had a little fridge and microwave. The location right on the water and close to our venue was perfect! Thanks!

We changed and left in minutes for the dinner When we came back we got new sheets because one bed had hairs in it.... More

We stayed at this Inn which is suppose to now be undated. Some of it is. The staff was friendly and attentive. The biggest problem I had as most of us would was the lack of good house keeping. I found that the little fridge had not been moved, in what looked like months and cleaned under. If you lifted... More
