Room was dirty and old. They have not taken care of their property. The door to the free standing gas stove fell off on my friend hand and the guy was blaming us instead of just saying sorry and addressing the problem. Grounds were ok, but water seemed dirty at the private beach area, so we didn’t enter. The worst was the dirty room and when the guy came in to look at heater, I showed him the inch of dirt and dust under the stove and he didn’t even care or clean it when he came to our room. The shower is so so small including the whole bathroom...you can barely turn around. Beds are very firm. Sheets seemed to be clean, but room was not including baseboards and tables were very dusty. It is just a one star motel. He had Costco bagels and muffins sitting outside for breakfast along with a few other items.

I am just going to copy the review given by Peter as he was spot on. The River View Garden Resort is a perfect spot to enjoy the fun and beauty of the Russian River. Jay, the manager, is super friendly and the perfect host. The cabins aren’t fancy but they provide all the perks you’ll want or need. I stayed between July 8th and th 12th. I enjoyed a private deck with a gorgeous view of the river. Jay also provided free use of a kayak which was an incredible and welcome surprise. The area had a major flood back in February which affected most the resorts in the area. I can't speak for the ground level rooms but the upstairs rooms were fine. Mine did not have AC but really didn't need it. Fans were provided but I did not use them. Highly recommend.

Like every year for the last 6 years we came to Monte Rio for the Vineman triathlon. Usually we try to rent a house nearby but this time decided on a hotel. The River View Garden Resort was available and prices very reasonably so we decided to give it a try. What a great choice. First, location. You can walk to the race in 5 minutes, which is awesome. Second, location. The rooms face a lush garden that faces the river. Chairs and tables are available, and it is beautiful to sit by the water and enjoy a coffee, or glass of wine. The rooms are simple but clean. I heard some people say the rooms are dark, but how much time do you really spend inside the room? We used it for sleeping and watching tv, otherwise it is way too nice outside to stay in the room. There is a nice simple breakfast in the morning, the owner is very friendly and helpful. Overall it was a great experience, and we will definitely be back!

We stayed at River View and were drawn in with the beautiful photos of the river and gardens . The grounds are beautiful..... However we were very disappointed with the room and 'suite' . It was on the ground floor and very dated , dark and smelt of damp and bleach and was not very clean .... Very disappointing, although Jay was a good attentive host though.
