“One of a kind staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

I had the pleasure of staying at the lodge because of the power loss due to the weather. I had never even known grants pass had such a jewel, The rooms are HUGE and the beds are very soft. The staff were very accommodating and the wine and cheese was a nice touch. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family when they come into town to visit.

This was a our second stay there.

Great rooms, nice atmosphere, and you will not find a friendlier staff anywhere.

Small but very nice breakfast with fresh-backed goods. Great location, a short walk to a nice restaurant.

Room Tip: Second floor, river view! Costs a bit more, but well-worth it.

I spent my Christmas eve birthday here. We enjoyed our cheese, wine, and yummy cookies in the cozy lobby. Michelle was very helpful and friendly. She gave me a birthday card and a complimentary bottle of wine. Breakfast food and service was great too. We will spend a night this summer. Thanks for the hospitality.

I've stayed here several times while in the area on business. Jake at the desk in the evening is personable and accommodating. The evening wine and cheese and later cookies are a bit of fun. The lobby was decorated for Christmas and felt cozy and welcoming.

On business trip in Grants Pass, Oregon. Outstanding facility with very helpful front desk. This week Jake and Katrina decorated the lobby including Christmas Trees. An outstanding job. Breakfast is served by Jesse (always with a smile). A recommended stay

Room Tip: Travelers can ask for view rooms overlooking the beautiful Rogue River

Rustic charm, great hospitality, and large rooms describe this hotel. I stopped here on a trip to Portland over thanksgiving and though traveling solo, quickly felt right at home. A crackling fire, wine and cheese, and later fresh baked cookies are all part of the charm.

Pillows were a little soft, and though large, the room furnishing is about average, my room felt kind of empty, but that's a nitpick, we'll worth a stay!

Room Tip: View rooms cost more but may not be necessary for you

We chose this location as part of our honeymoon down the coast and it seemed like a good stopping point on a long stretch from Oregon to the redwood forests. Jake was tending the desk when we arrived and it seemed that there was only a couple of rooms occupied that evening. Our reception was a little rude from him...he eyed my husband suspiciously when he walked in looking for the restroom and told him that there was none here and "if he would wait a minute he was checking us in as fast as he can". He inquired into our trip which I replied was a trip down the coast, forgetting to say it was our honeymoon. Not until we were walking out the door did he finally decide to give us our complimentary bottle of wine and 2 glasses to carry upstairs. He stated, "I don't know why they are giving this to you I just have a note here saying to give it to you". Which I'm pretty sure he was waivering on giving to us in the first place. There are no elevators in the hotel and they put us on the 2nd story so if you have oversized luggage and in this case a bottle of wine and 2 glasses to carry it makes it quite difficult. The view is nice but you are right next to the busy highway and the road noise cancels out any tranquil feel you get from the river view. We checked out early the next morning so we weren't able to enjoy their breakfast. It was a nice touch to have the wine but it would've been nicer had it been in our room so we didn't have to carry everything up the stairs. Front desk was not the friendliest as we had hoped based on previous reviewers comments but the rooms were nice. I would not waste my money on the upgraded room next time though.

Room Tip: Ask for a room further away from street for a quieter stay. Riverview was blocked by trees so I woul...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay at The Lodge at Riverside. This review saddens and disappoints me. It appears what was supposed to be a nice surprise for you from the hotel turned confusing and just awkward. As well, your experience with Jake is so far his normal enthusiastic, helpful and accommodating spirit, it really surprises me. I assure you the comments that you noted from previous guests is the normal experience at The Lodge at Riverside and I am sorry that was not your experience as well. Your review is a reminder that every encounter with our guests is as important as any other and will definitely be shared with the staff. We would love for you to give us another try and if you would like to contact me directly, I would appreciate hearing more about your experience.
Warm regards,
Tamara Bushnell
