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

Booked this place on a Groupon. It's more like a B&B and is very quaint. The people who run it are very nice and you can get a packed lunch for Cumberland Island in a returnable insulated cooler for $8.00, that was a fantastic deal. Knowing this was an older hotel I kind of expected what we received in the... More

I read the reviews prior to booking this hotel, so I knew what to expect. My husband and I visited Cumberland Island and this hotel is across the street from the park service building where the ferry leaves from, so it is very convenient for that purpose. This hotel is old, built around 1916 or so, and has a lot... More

My husband and I stayed here a long time ago, August 2005 in fact. But since I just joined this site I decided to see if it this neat, old place we stayed at was in here and it is! This is a REALLY old place, which was one of the main reasons I wanted to stay there. My mom... More

I recently stayed in St. Mary's to go visit Cumberland Island and other areas surrounding St. Mary's. The hotel is in a great location because it is right across the street from the ferry to Cumberland Island. The hotel is obviously older but it is in fairly decent shape. There are beautiful views from the exterior rooms and a nice... More
