“Charming place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

It's sometimes difficult to find a nice clean place that takes dogs. The Inn at River Oaks was great. It's not a cookie-cutter chain and has a lot of charm. The courtyard has three live oaks,
hanging baskets of flowers, and either rocking chairs or swings with cushions outside every room. Our room had two comfortable double beds, tile floors, fridge, coffee pot, microwave. And let me emphasize clean. It's old-fashioned with wood ceilings and a small bath, but the water pressure was very good, reminiscent of a Seinfeld episode (If you watched Seinfeld, you know what I'm talking about). There is a good restaurant a couple of minutes walk away, and it's a pretty neighborhood. I'd definitely stay here again.

RiveroaksMotel, Manager at The Inn at River Oaks, responded to this review, November 19, 2012
Really sorry to hear you didn't like our place : ( I'm not sure how we would of overlooked the room smelling to you. We stay so busy that I know we had guests in the same room before and after your stay with no complaints. Also all of our beds are relatively new and we also have quality brand name beds, but the customer is always right , so again sorry we weren't able to meet your standards.

Sincerely the manager/Owner,
Joe Hilaman
