We stayed in the Riverside Inn for a couple of nights while mountain biking in the area. It's an older building with a rustic feel, which we liked and our room was clean and nicely made up. The bathroom was clean with a modern shower. The balcony looked out over the river (I think all the rooms' balconies do) which... More

A nice, quiet peaceful place to stay in an out of the way town. Rooms are clean with balconies overlooking the river. Great for sleeping! A bit of upkeep could be used, but clean and convenient to the town. Hosts are friendly and provide a nice breakfast. Some rooms have microwaves, but ours was a smaller room. Maybe next time.

We love to stay in Downieville. All of the rooms at this hotel overlook the river. We stay upstairs and all of the rooms there have balconies overlooking the river. The rooms are older but in very nice clean condition and look like cabins inside. We had a room with a kitchen which also overlooks the river. There is a... More

The Riverside Inn has its charms, including a handmade quilt in my room. But for the price (the cheapest room is just under $100 a night, before tax) one would hope to have a few more amenities. My room was small but not cheap. There's no air conditioning in the rooms and Downieville can approach 100° (38°C) in the summer.... More

Clean and modern rooms, internet and peaceful. This place has it all, love going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the river. Walking distance from downtown. Owners are nice and friendly. They allowed me to bring my dog and I would recommend this place highly

The Riverside Inn in Downieville is a special find in the Sierras of North Eastern California. It is a fine old wooden building situated directly on the banks of the North Fork of the Yuba River. Our second floor room was delightfully furnished with a comfortable king bed and two upholstered wooden rocking chairs. The room was heated by a... More

This place is right on the Yuba River - each room has a balcony overlooking the river. Our room was knotty pine and very quaint and well appointed. Hosts are VERY nice and very helpful. Continental Breakfast was superb - bagels and lox, ham and gouda cheese, blueberry breakfast bread as well as fresh fruit & vegies. Great for a... More

We stayed for one night over the weekend, and although the hotel itself is nothing special the location is amazing. Right on the river with clean (if a little dated, but charming) rooms. At night we could hear the water rushing by, and there are overhanging balconies. I'll be back for sure!

We had a very comfortable one night stay at this charming inn. Our room with king bed was nicely decorated and had a lovely view of the river. The owners were friendly and welcoming, even provided covered parking for our motorcycle. A continental breakfast was served in the lounge but trays were also provided if one wanted to eat in...

It was my first time to Downieville (went for Mountain biking) and I would definitely go back to Riverside Inn. I gave it 3 stars bc the rooms are a bit run down (worn carpet) and the breakfast fine, but not really special. The proprietors are 5 star--friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was bagels (cream cheese and salmon), toast, coffee... More
