If you want a full-service resort, this is not for you. If you want a quiet, cozy, friendly place to enjoy the area, stay here. Our riverfront room has a small balcony on the water. Although the motel is on busy Rt 27, our room was very quiet. Rooms have a refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, cable tv, and free wifi. Elisabeth... More

A small privately owned motel in a small town in Wisconsin. This motel is quaint but charming. It is on a river and has several waterside rooms available. There is a small fishing dock that is lighted at night. This motel is located within walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants and the downtown area. The water side rooms have nice... More

We stayed at the Riverside Motel over the 4th of July weekend. It was walking distance to town and a great restaurant right across the street. Horst and Elisabeth are wonderful people and have owned the hotel for as long as I can remember. Regarding the post about the shower floors being slanted, that's the way it is a lot... More

It was clean and cozy. The rooms had an old world charm, with a flat screen tv and refrigerator! Knotty pine walls with modern conveniences. Everything was well taken care of and spotless. This is definitely on our favorites list. Next time we will book a room on the river with the courtyard and flowers!

The Riverside Motel was a great locally run place to stay for a night. I was in Hayward for work and this was an excellent affordable motel. While the furnishings were a little dated and the pillows just so-so, the rooms themselves were clean and well looked after. The staff was incredibly pleasent and the rate was terrific (although it... More

Stayed over night for a funeral. Very clean room! Very nicely decorated and was very happy. Not fancy but very quaint. The price was very reasonable and they even turn the lights on for you so you don't come back in the dark! Highly recommend this motel! Love that you can park right in front of your room.

Thank you also, for posting a great review for our motel. We don't take reviews like yours for granted. We also do some travel and try to learn from the places we spend time in ... Turning the lights on is something we wanted to do because it was done for us, and made us feel like someone cared ...... More

Rooms are very clean, owners are very accomodating. The room had a small fridge and microwave. The hotel is close to downtown area and good restaurant right across the street. Price couldn't be beat. The owners gave us a tour of the other facilities (i.e., cabins). Very reasonable prices and nice view of the river. We'll definitely stay again.

We have been staying in this nice older motel for a number of years, and found the waterside rooms to be just as nice as ever. We have never stayed in the street side rooms, but the waterside rooms are spacious, with real wood furniture, and wood trim details around the room, vanity, and bathroom. The vanity/sink and closet area... More

We spent two evenings at the Riverside Motel during the 4th of July holiday. The price was right, the room large, the bed comfortable and the bathroom spacious and clean. We really enjoyed sitting out on the deck overlooking the river, good place for an adult beverage in the evening, or a cup of coffee in the morning. The Hayward... More
