We ore ordered dinner, salmon and ribeye steak ..steak was definitely not rib eye ..and so overdone I could have used it for shoe soles, served with canned mushrooms and frozen veggies..horrible. On top of all this, the man at the next at table was serving his dog his left over steak and soup! Salmon was also overcooked and dry.... More

A diamond in a rough town. The only oasis in Springdale. Excellent rooms; spacious, new, fab beds and bathrooms. Innkeeper very friendly and accommodating. Great breakfast food included. A little hard to find…..but worth the find.

Stayed in down stairs room (Juniper), clean and very comfortable beds, walkout to patio with table and chairs. Supper not served and did drive to... More

Service almost non-existent and NONE in evening; "contact" for assistance only through dial-up reception phone to an answering machine (e.g. problems with tv/shower/internet/room ice). No ice in bldg, no hot water 9:30 pm. Room/hotel instructions finally located in drawer (under phone book & papers). Bed frames dangerous for shins (!), 18" on each side of centre night table--too far to... More

Hi Karen and thank you for taking the time to offer your valuable feedback. Based upon your comments it is apparent you were unaware of the amenities offered in our 4.5 star rated business and our hostess should have definitely explained many of these upon check in, but for the record I will explain here as this negative commentary requires...

Beautiful setting along the river! The rooms were immaculate and well equipped. Unfortunately it is a very unwelcoming place. No greeting or information upon arrival. Had breakfast in the dark with no one EVER coming to see if we needed any more coffee, etc. Very sterile place! Too bad!

We were so delighted to arrive at the Riverwood Inn. Our room was new, beautifully appointed and upstairs overlooking the river. We had a large bathroom with a tub big enough for 2. There were apples and oranges out downstairs for guests at all times and very friendly and helpful staff.

The owner should Google 'how to sound proof a room' we could hear someone snoring in the room above. Every door we touched squeezed. Not a good place to get some sleep. If you are looking for a view by water then thats good. Paid to much for this place. Would of got more sleep in the car.

The Riverwood Inn is in a lovely setting and at first glance appears tobe a great spot. As others have said though, it is difficult to find from the main road,due to poor signage. Although the room is spacious and well appointed. It does lack a few amenities such as good reading light and a second night table. Also had... More

Hi Heather and John and thank you for your valuable feedback.

We will also consider the Continental option during the less busy seasons but we have to... More

By chance we found the Riverwood Inn and were very pleased. We more or less stumbled upon it- I could see where it might be confusing to find if you were looking for it. Better signage off the main road is probably a good idea. It's a total of 11 (?) rooms in 2 fairly new buildings. We were in... More
