I stayed at Riverside earlier this summer while fishing, and last night with my wife as we were up for Fall color. Really pleased with the clean, quiet (though ideally located) room. Everything looks extremely well kept up. The owner Horst is very pleasant and personable. A great place to stay!

We ended up deciding to stay an extra night in Hayward without a place to stay. After looking around on TripAdvisor we decided to contact The Riverside Motel based on the positive reviews of others. For a reasonable cost, we stayed in a clean and comfortable room overlooking a very peaceful body of water. Horst and Elizabeth were great to... More

Your review of our property certainly was a pleasant surprise to us! It makes our work day so much more enjoyable, to have reviews like this one. In the summer and on special event weekends, a great variety of people from different backgrounds and with different travel experiences and expectations come to Hayward, national and international. We never know who... More

I admit it: I'm a simple guy. Give me some beauty and quiet at a motel, and I"m happy. This is a great Northwoods Motel. A nice German Couple own it and have for many years(American flag, Wisconsin flag and German flag in front). I was there for the last Thomas Hearns/Sugar Ray Leoard fight. It is on Lake Hayward...

This guest experienced what most travelers wish for, a quiet and restful stay and a great meal and service! We hear from many guests that they are happy with their stay, sleep well and hope we will still be here next year.

Originally booked a standard room, but based on other reviews, called back & reserved a waterfront room. Horst was very accommodating in making the change. He even called me back to explain the different cancellation policy (72 hrs instead of 48 hrs). The room had a table with two chairs, a small sofa, & the usual coffeemaker, microwave, mini fridge...

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in one of our Waterfront Rooms. Many guests have told us that they sleep very well, and that they appreciate the location in walking distance to downtown, grocery stores, attractions and restaurants. Reviews like yours keep us motivated to continue our work here in Hayward, where it is still possible to... More

My fiance, daughter and I called earlier in the day to make a reservation for this motel. We were coming from Illinois and informed them we would hopefully make it by 10pm. Unfortunately my daughter got sick (she's 3 and had heart surgery at 17 months. Car rides can still be difficult for her). I called at 9:30pm to explain... More

Reading this review feels like getting a beating. Someone really vented their anger. Stories are never fully told, and this one isn't either. We have said it before, and I say it again. Please communicate to the innkeeper and let them know about your special situation. If it is worth mentioning publicly in a negative online review, why is not... More

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.

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.
