At first I thought we were going to be in trouble. Walked into the office and it did not smell good. But, when we walked into the room, it was very clean and semi-updated. The bedding was very nice and the beds were soft. Things that need updating: tv (old, but worked), self dispensers in bathroom and shower for shampoo... More

This is a great place to stay, wonderful location and priced reasonable. We had a King Room and it was a good sleep, the room was spacious, the bathroom a touch tight but doable. The had dispensers in the shower and sink area and thought was a great idea. The place is within walking of some great eating and doing,... More

This was the second time we stayed at this motel. The room was clean and the management friendly and helpful. The location is walking distance to most of the shops in town. The breakfast was good and plentiful. We would certainly stay here again.

Towards the end of a three week tour of Colorado and Wyoming and after a good few nights camping we were ready for beds and hot showers. At the Inn by the River we got so much more! Mr Chowdhury was very helpful and generous from the moment we walked thro the door. He clearly enjoys running his hotel to... More

We initially liked the room and location, but around 1am the sink and tub started overflowing with raw sewage! Our toiletries were ruined. The manager moved us one room down and discounted the room 20%, but we would have rather stayed elsewhere.

We had a wonderful time staying here! Along with standard hotel rooms, this hotel has three cabins available. What fun! Our 2 room cabin had a double bed, futon, and bunk beds. The cabin was clean and had its own picnic table, fridge, microwave, ceiling fan, A/C, and bathroom with shower (nice showerhead!) The breakfast was wonderful. Three cereals, waffle... More

The cabins are family friendly. Bunk beds in the main room are great for kids. There is also a futon/couch in the main room along with a table and kitchen area (sink, frig, microwave). The grown ups get their own room with a door. Bathroom is small because the sink is in the bedroom worked great for us because one... More

Reserved two rooms at this hotel. The rooms were affordable and both were neat, clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly and immediately placed a wash bucket and towels outside our rooms to clean our motorcycles. The breakfast room was small but neat and the breakfast was standard free breakfast of waffles, bagels, fruit etc.

This was such a cute stop on our way through South Dakota.We stayed just one night, but we had 5 people so I chose a cabin when booking. It was the right choice, but I would say the bunk beds are for kids only... not well padded. The owner was so kind and helpful, a small town feel. The town... More

We spent six nights here and they were the most accommodating place we have ever stayed at. The room was clean, the staff very helpful, and the location was great. I would stay here again. The balcony was so enjoyable to be out on in the evening, enjoyed watching what was going on and hearing the river run by.
