“Only because the owners havent let the public know what is going on yet with the motel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We drove by the riverlet in hopes that more had been done to or to have a sign posted letting former patrons know what was up. But there was none. The office still has broken windows in it. It looks like some repairs had been done at one point but none lately. It is quiet a shame that a once popular place to stay is sitting up deterioating in value and appearance. Especially considering that Ghost town should be in full operation next summer hopefully. That should bring more business to the motels like the riverlet if they could get the repairs done and reopen. We would love to work there like the former Mickey who ran it did but better. However it is very wrong for them not to have a free facebook or foursquare account to allow the public to know when or if it will open again. It's not hard to set up an account and just post a small info in their "about" page allowing us to know and keep us in the loop if it will reopen. Please if you are the owners let your former patrons know something. We miss the way the riverlet use to be 2007-2010 years. thank you.

Wanted to stay there in Feb. 2012 but couldn't. Definitely not in business. We have stayed here about 4 times. My husband stayed here more before we got together. Micky the lady who ran the place for the owners was always very friendly and helpful. The place is a older place. Not the ritz but very decent. Worth the stay because they had great rates. Just wish they could have got the pool fixed and wish they would except pets but they didnt. We had to stay somewhere else in feb. We drove by the riverlet. It looked like someone had vandlized the place. It was sad to see it that bad when it was once a beautiful place to stay at when it was open. The vandals took a/c units, busted holes in the walls/windows, trashed the doors, etc. It did appear as if someone was trying to fix the damage. The office was being gutted and redone on the inside. They had boarded the broken windows etc. We hope they let us know and others if they plan to reopen the place as a hotel or not. It would be nice to see it fixed up and reopened.

We stayed last year and really enjoyed the place. Some nice little updates in the room, love the creek, and the diner had good food.

I just tried to make reservations again for this year and it looks like they are gone. The website is down and all phone numbers are disconnected. Quite a bummer!

I have been staying at the Riverlet Motel for over ten years! It is an older, basic motel but it is alway clean and well stocked! The staff are professionial, nice and down to earth! The best thing of the grounds are the two creeks coming togather! There is a large deck at the creek for you to relex! I feel safe while I am there and never had a problem! I only can say good things about this motel and staff! In the room, I didn't here any outside noice, alot of hot water, nice beds, and alot of channels on the cable TV. Try staying there at the Riverlet Motel, you may like it!

Would love to keep coming back butttttt.Beds were good.Food in restaurant is good. If it weren't for the creek,not sure where we'd go.Sink was stopped up this last trip.

Nice no frills, great inexpensive place to stay if you are looking for just a place to sleep. We ride motorcycles all day and this was a great place to end up hanging out at night before retiring for the night.

I would stay here again. It was a quaint place on the creek. The young man in the office was very entertaining. It was right in the valley.
