We stayed for 2 weeks in July. Our room was clean and we saw no bugs. The motel staff were friendly and courteous. We were in building 3 which was the best looking of the three. Building 2 was in the process of being renovated with a new office, reception room and kitchen. Rooms were also being newly renovated. We... More

We booked the Riverside Inn ONLY because it was in Titusville and we were attending the final Shuttle Launch on July 8th; hotel space was very difficult to find. This one was the closest hotel to the KSC, and they had space (I can see why), but they had tripled their prices (because of the launch) and required a 3-night... More

I am sorry that you had a negative experience at The Riverside Inn. Since your time here with us, our renovation program is in full swing. Our new lobby and guest lounge has been framed out and 15 rooms are currently under renovation and scheduled for completion by the middle of September. You are correct in saying that this is...

Gross does not even describe this place. We had reservations to watch the shuttle launch, but the place was filthy, roaches in the bathroom and the deck was covered with hundreds of lovebugs. We didn't stay and because of their no-refund policy we were not able to get our money back. I gave it higher marks for location, but stay... More

Probably the only reason you are considering this hotel -- is the location. It is one of the best spots to view a shuttle launch. Unfortunately, there is only one launch left. If you are considering staying here for any other reason -- don't do it. The facility is old and unrennovated. Any comments that there has been a rennovation... More

Their web site says: Experience Elegance and Excitement aha! Don't let them full you! It's the most dirty and awful hotel I have ever been to. Actually when we saw the state of it, we left. 2 wings of the hotel are rented out to people who rent rooms by month or year or whatever. They looked like unemployed very... More

My husband and I wanted to take our grandson (he's 5 1/2) to see the shuttle launch on Nov. 1st, 2010. We also invited our neighbors who have children to go with us. I called and booked two rooms, but insisted if the shuttle did not go off, that we could cnx. giving them the recommended time. I gave the... More

It ssems that a lot of the problems in earlier reviews have been attended to. We found the room reasonably clean, ok what do you expect for that sort of money, the Hilton? The shower worked perfectly well. Only draw back was you needed muscles like Garth to open patio door. but once you did the fishing was fantastic three... More

Thank you for the great feedback. We have worked hard since taking over at the beginning of September to improve the overall cleanliness and functionality of the rooms. We are making great progress and look forward to welcoming you back again next year when our renovations will be complete. More

Okay-this place is a major dump.HOWEVER,if you are ooking for a place to view a shuttle launch, this is the place. Rather than book a room, show up early in the day of a launch and pay $10.00 to park your car and use the facilities. We just happened upon the inn and used it for the day of the... More
