This used to be a super 8, and it still feels like one at times. The rooms are average rooms. Very clean. I have had times where the ice machine was out, but this happens at a lot of hotels. The front desk person I dealt with at arrival was a little on the rude side, but the one when... More

In full disclosure, I am originally from Boscobel so I know what the pros and cons are in this place. First off, there are not a lot of lodging options in Boscobel, so, almost by default, River Inn is the place to stay. For the past five years, we have stayed here 3-4 times a year and yet are treated... More

Very nice hotel, clean and quiet. The staff is friendly and the pool is clean. My room was nice, clean and comfortable. The bed was a little too firm for my tastes, though. The breakfast could use more options; there is bread, some fruit, and cereal with milk. Nothing hot except toast.

Start by saying it was very clean. Now for the not so good. No coffee in the room I was in. Had to wait until six for coffee in the lobby. Hard beds and pillows. Price was more than I have paid for a nights stay at almost any other hotel. Boscobel is not Milwaukee. Fittness center, business center, and... More

The hotel was not bad but will not return to the hotel. Had an issue and wanted to discuss with the Manager, Alisha Knoble. I have never in my life ran into such an insulting and aggressive young person. I actually felt like she might hit me, a lady of almost 80. What a lack of respect.

Having never visited this hotel before I called ahead to find out a couple of things school bus drivers need to know about overnight parking in 15 degree winter weather. Jackie, who answered the phone, did not know all the answers but took my name and number and promised to call me back. She did! In about 10 minutes, with... More

We were on a motorcycle trip and just happened to find the town of Boscobel, WI. We needed to find a place to stay as it was getting dark. We were at a local pub having pizza and we happened to run into the manager of the hotel. She gave us a great deal, followed us to the hotel, let... More

I honestly wasn't expecting a whole lot based on the very reasonable price but I was pleasantly surprised. I stayed on the first floor and could tell right away that my room had been very recently updated. Fresh paint, new clean carpet, nice bedding, and everything else was in great condition. Super clean - a big plus. The only downside... More

I stayed at this hotel in July 2014. I was 8 months pregnant at the time and stayed at this hotel alone for one night. Upon reviewing my on-line statements I found that this hotel Over charged my credit card and when I called to ask why this happened the receptionist replied " It doesn't specify why."
