This is one nice motel! Family run, super clean, freshly redone, in a quiet side street, no noisy upper level...I could go on. Their trademark is a little rubber ducky that comes in a few colors as a room compagnion :)

We stayed a few days in what they refer to as the cabin which is a renovated home next door to the original building. Our cabin was a two bedroom unit with a dining and kitchen larger than most homes. It also had a covered patio with table, chairs and barbee. Didn't get to use the large living room because... More

Tucked away in Port Alberni, this was a gem. Flowers in front of every suite was an added bonus and allowed me to put away a hectic day. Close to excellent restaurants and a beautiful walking path along the river. Clean, fresh rooms and friendly staff. I slept like a baby.

We booked very short-term,the day we arrive on Vancouver Island, because the Motel prebooked in Nanaimo was awful. We had a 2 Queensize bedroom with a kitchen and bathroom. Very clean, there's nothing to complain about. Staff was very friendly. We recommend your accomodation and when we will visit Vancouver Island again, we will book it again

We needed a room the night before our trip out to Sechart Cove and the night of our return. Pleasantly surprised at how lovely and clean our rooms were. Obviously recently renovated and updated on which they did a great job. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom spotless. I would highly recommend the Riverside Motel to anyone. Great spot...

We rented the 2 bedroom cabin (my partner & I and our 2 adult boys) and for a small fee we also brought our dog. It was obviously recently renovated, the kitchen was huge, bigger than my home kitchen. There were some flaws in the work, a missing chunk of tile from the kitchen counter which was covered with a...

It's been a very long time since I've stayed in a motel, instead of a hotel. Wow! Very impressed at how updated, clean and pretty the rooms were! Comfortable clean beds and small refrigerator/freezer....everything you need! Beautiful rose bushes outside, with benches to sit on. Very inviting. Would definitely stay here again!

Hotel is within walking distance of riverside park, restaurants and shops. We were delighted to find we had a room with 2 bedrooms. Room clean, beds comfortable. A full length mirror in the room would be a good addition. Beautiful bathroom, loved the rubber duck on the bathtub. Lighting in bathroom is very dim and hard to see to apply... More

We stayed here for five nights and enjoyed every minute. We were there as a hockey team and had the motel to ourselves. They were so accommodating for our schedule and our needs. They even let us use their propane fire pit to socialize around. There's a lovely covered area in front of the motel with tables and chairs as... More

We are very happy with our room at Riverside Motel. It is clean and the desk lady was very friendly. We have a stove /sink/fridge combo , a table and two queen beds. The bedding and wall decor is new. It is a place that we could stay for several days.
