Spent 3 nights with our dog. Very handy for taking the ferry over to Cumberland Island. If you like new and polished, this place is not for you. This hotel is showing a lot of wear and tear but does have a certain amount of laid back appeal. I do think the lobby could use a major refreshing. There is... More

We stopped for an overnight visit. The hotel is quite old and needs some TLC. The adjoining bar had a couple of patrons when we got there, including a cat that made itself comfortable on the bar. I could smell animal in the lobby as well. The room seemed ok, but the sheets were old and oil stained. We asked... More

My husband and I stayed here in April 2014. The hotel itself is very old, and in some places shows its age. The 2nd floor deck really needed some maintenance to attend to some loose decking boards. We stayed in a room overlooking the river, which was nice. The room itself was fairly comfortable, but the bathroom was very small.... More

We were here about two years ago, decided to go back for our Christmas. We always take a two night trip for Christmas. We love this hotel. It's old, furnishings old, not fancy but if you like a Grand old hotel where the staff is really wonderful, great food, fun bar then this is for you. It's quiet, not a... More

I stayed at this hotel in 1995 and remembered a leaky faucet dripping all night and threadbare linens. I am glad to say that things have improved, the bathroom have been redone and someone finally bought some new towels and linens. That being said, I love the place, it's just what I look for when I travel, I would rather... More

If you’re looking for history and charm this is the place! If cleanliness and amenities are important, you need to look somewhere else. The only cleaning that has been done since 1916 is surface cleaning at best, large gap under the door lets in light and noise and the bed sheets were thread bare. Twice during the night there was...

Let me first say- it's old. But it is charming and my room was very clean. We stayed for a girlfriends weekend- and all agreed that it was good. We had rooms over the bar which got a Little noisey but didn't last past 9pm. Other friends said they didn't hear it from their rooms. So I think it depends... More

The Riverview Hotel is a charming historic hotel located right across from the visitor center and ferry dock. Some might think the resident dog and cat are odd but believe me when I st that they belong there. If you are looking for historic hotel, this is the place to stay. The hotel an rooms are decorated beautifully and the... More

Had been through St. Mary's a few times and never took time to explore this quaint little city! Friend and I both enjoy historical places and B&Bs, so we decided this would be a perfect venue to celebrate our August birthdays. But for the fact that we hit the hottest "heat wave" in many years for that area, we were... More

We found this place because of a deal on Groupon, what a lucky find! Great Hotel, super friendly and helpful staff. It's a historic hotel, however, the rooms were a perfect mix of antique and modern. We stayed in the Poke McHenry room, which even though it's an "inside" room it had plenty of sunlight and never felt claustrophobic. The... More
