“Very comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Stayed here during the antique's week show. The room was clean, clean, clean and for being an older motel was very well equiped. The room had a microwave and refrigerator which came in very handy. There were a lot of people staying the first couple of nights and we did not hear any noise. The room was a good size and the beds were very comfortable. The only negative was that it did not have a coffee maker in the room, although, coffee was available at the front desk in the morning. The wi-fi was a little spotty at times. Overall, a very good stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Just needed a nice inexpensive place to sleep after a wonderful Easter barbecue vs driving back to Houston at night. The staff is very courteous & attentive. The room was spotless. Nothing fancy but clean, nice & included an iron, ironing board & a hair dryer. There is even a mini fridge. We were able to bring our dog for an extra $10. We were very pleased & would definitely stay there again. Also, two good restaurants across the road. La Marina very good, friendly, cheap and lots of regulars. Riverside Cafe has good reputation but we didn't have time to visit.

We have stayed here for several years, twice a year, while doing the Round Top Antique Show.
It has always been an acceptable place to stay, but this year, it was a very good place to stay. The room we were in was completely remodeled this year - new beds, furniture, wiring for computers, carpet, paint. The rooms are large enough for two weeks worth of clothes and junk that we haul when we work. Air conditioning/heating system worked fine (yes, we used both, it was Texas in the spring!) and we were comfortable and content. We heard complaints (loud ones) about the lack of hot water in the morning; we just revised our schedule - husband took his bath at night; I took mine at 6 am, and there was plenty of hot water then. The place fills up during the antique show and sometimes folks party some, but the soundproofing seems to be pretty good most of the time. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Rate is better than most of the places available at this time of the year. We like this place and will stay for the forseeable future.

Room Tip: Might ask for a remodeled room....I dunno if they've all been done yet.

Have stayed here for several years while visiting the Round To area during antique weeks. The rooms are always clean and have been recently updated. Most have microwave and refrigerators. Upstairs rooms are quieter..Downstairs rooms you hear footsteps from above room. Rooms are large, water pressure is good and hot. Prices are very fair.

We needed a place to stay on the way back from a trip to Bandera. Unfortunately, we were traveling the same weekend as the Austin Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend. I found this out quickly after getting outrageous rate quotes for hotels and motels within a 60-mile radius of the race. The River Valley Inn was one of the few places that didn't price gouge and was conveniently located. Because it's not part of a national chain, the price was very affordable. I had read some mixed reviews online for it, but our experience there was very pleasant. Of course, you have to appreciate it for what it is -- a cheap, clean, convenient place to spend the night that feels safe and is close to shopping, restaurants, and the main highway. If you are looking for luxury, you are looking in the wrong place. But we found this place to meet our needs and had a comfortable and quiet night's rest. They were helpful and accommodating too! Our friend was given a smoking room by mistake. They corrected the situation by upgrading him to a nicer non-smoking room than he had originally booked -- all at a time when there weren't many rooms to spare. We were pleased with the customer service, and would definitely stay here again if we found ourselves staying overnight in La Grange in the future.

Upon our arrival, we were quickly checked in. Our room included a refrigerator in which we kept some of our own food. The room was spacious. However, if there are two of you, opt for the King Bed or two singles. The queen bed was a wee bit small. During our stay, we ran into problems with our luggage. The front desk helped us with repairs, getting tape and providing scissors. They also gave us excellent directions to our next stop.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a King bed or twin beds if you are a couple. The queen size is just too small...

When we arrived at the motel there was a group of people a couple of rooms down with the radio blasting gangster rap music from their car radio. They had the sub woofers at full blast. My wife called the front desk to ask if they would have them turn it down. They did nothing. That should have been a warning.
Sometime in the middle of the night, probably after the bars closed, those folks and several others proceeded to party in the parking lot. They were talking and carrying on so loudly that it was impossible to sleep. My wife called the front desk and they said that they would tell them to stop.
There was never a break in the noise until about 6:00 am. We asked for a 50% refund in the room price since we did not get the rest that we paid for. They refused. I will never stay there again. The owner does not protect the safety and well being of his guests.
