I saw the relatively positive reviews and $50-$60 prices for Riverbank Inn after a long drive and decided to just pull up and go...but when I went inside the woman said it would be $88. I mentioned seeing lower rates, but she looked at me blankly. It's certainly my fault that I went forward with the reservation, but I was tired.
Perhaps for that lower rate, this would be an okay place. But I must say that I felt a little taken advantage of in terms of pricing. The room was fine (again if it had been a lower rate). Smelled a little weird. No bath, just a stand up shower I didn't use. For one night at, say, $50, it'd be acceptable...but at nearly $90, it's laughable.
It also seems like there are quite a number of rooms where long-term residents are living. As a woman traveling alone, I felt a bit uneasy about the number of men (often more than 4 to a room) loitering around numerous doors. Perhaps this is just my paranoid problem, but it should be noted.
Nothing actually bad happened, but the larger price tag and feeling of staying in a place where most rooms were more like overstuffed apartments, basically made me feel weird. I'll be driving cross country again soon enough, and this isn't a place I'd return to.
