Cool place for it's clean, classic, comfortable rooms. Upstairs room, quiet and comfortable. Large double bed, not too soft or too hard, just right. Just right large flat screen TV over bed. Small but just right bathroom. Cute little table by window. Also a fridge and microwave in a room with bargain price. Short walk to food, shopping, entertainment in... More

Stayed here for two nights over New Years. Cute little place. The room and bathroom are large. We had the end room upstairs. I loved having the end, because of the view I got from the windows. Short distance to the river walk. Across the street from a beautiful pub/ restaurant. Walking distance to downtown. The only issue I had... More

My husband and I spent two nights this week at River Road Motel. We were very pleased with the newly remodeled room. Looks like the bedding and bathroom was recently refurbished. And there was a new flat screen TV. The room was spotless and owner was very pleasant at the front desk. You can't beat the location which is walking... More

We (2 adults and our 6 year old) stayed here for 5 nights in July 2013. We chose it because we got off the Amtrak and stumbled upon it. We made a good choice, the owner offered us a good rate (initially stayed 3 nights and extended our stay), passes to chula vista and several other local attractions. The room... More

We stayed here on a weekday evening. I was put off at first by the shabby exterior, tiny tube tv circa 1995, and lack of wifi or any other amenities. On the plus side, the room was clean and had a decent sized refrigerator and freezer...plus of course the Chula Vista passes. However, the other place we are staying is... More

The person at the front desk was very rude. Booked the room online and reserved a smoking room. When we showed up, we were informed they don't have smoking rooms. We questioned why their website offered smoking rooms with no good response except "everyone knows there's no smoking." Obviously EVERYONE does not! Go right next store to the Top Hat... More

I liked this motel. The staff was very helpful and nice. The rooms were clean. I also liked that it is so close to down town. I was able to walk down the strip from the motel. Oh another good thing was that passes to Chula Vista were included with your stay. The rooms also have a microwave and small... More

The customer service here was AWFUL! When we first pulled into the parking lot, the owner was sitting upstairs on the balcony above the office and didn't even come down to check us in. We didn't know it was the owner at the time, but after waiting almost 15 minutes we got back in our car to try again later.... More

This motel is in a great location (2 parking lots behind Nig's bar) off the strip. We (Me, my husband, 2 kids ages 7 and 11) saved money by staying here 4 nights and were able to enjoy all our favorite activities. Upon arrival we were given wristbands to Chula Vista water park for the entire length of our stay,... More
