We stayed at this "hotel" after buying the deal on Groupon in December. We stayed at the Riverwalk Inn in June 2013, and had a horrible night. First, we paid for a King sized bed, but ended up in a room with a set of doubles. No explanation given as to why we did not get what we had booked months earlier. Too tired to complain, so we went with it. Once we looked around the room, we knew we had made a huge mistake. The stuffy room smelled like an old sock in a dirty dog kennel and had wallpaper peeling from the walls. There was a strange red stain on the old carpet. The furniture must have been left in the rooms while the hotel was empty and abandoned for many years. There was nothing quaint about it. We again tried to overlook the shabby surroundings, but the smell and filth made it difficult. We did not have deck furniture, and the slider had a strange sludge on it that made it cloudy and filthy. We could not even enjoy the view. When I called the front desk, no one answered. We stood on the deck and looked across the hotel and saw other rooms that had chairs on their decks. Also, the TV remote was broken, and there was no WIFI. Our experience was deeply disappointing and we felt ripped off. This hotel needs a lot of renovation to become even fairly acceptable. There is no air conditioning, so it was stuffy all night. I was awake most of the night, and trying to breathe through my mouth without smelling the disgusting smell that won't go away. We again tried to overlook things and just get through the night because it was pretty cheap. Once the sun came up, I was packed and ready to leave immediately. This was the worst night in a hotel I have ever had! When we checked out, the front desk staff asked how it was, and I could not even put into words how it was. Stay away from this dump, not worth any price! I will be consulting TripAdvisor before booking anymore Groupon deals from now on!
