We stayed one night with no complaints. We arrived early and we were able to check in immediately. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was in excellent condition; in fact, it was in nearly brand new condition. Very convenient location. Price was right.

My family and I stayed at A Riverside Inn Hotel while horseback riding at the American Safari Ranch and white water rafting in Buena Vista. The location was perfect to do both over two days. The hotel is new, extremely clean with very comfortable beds and pillows. The service of the owners was top notch. I just can't say enough... More

For a motel, we found the bed and pillows comfortable, granite in bathroom was a pleasant surprise, flat panel tv, heater/ac unit was quiet and worked well. Little mini fridge was nice... More

On first sight upon entering the room I thought it was OK. When I went into the restroom it was obvious they hadn't really cleaned it. One of the towels had not been laundered, pubic and other hair everywhere. The beds are really uncomfortable and the walls are thin, a child crying next door felt like he was in the... More

A Riverside Inn Hotel is a 100% non-smoking hotel. Guests are made aware of this policy at check in. We are strict on this policy, as no one likes to be in a room that smells like smoke. Several guests complained, and the hotel had a odor. When the front desk asked you if you were smoking, your husband responded... More

Stayed here several times while looking for a cabin in the area. Always clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast is good, convenient, with many choices. No frills here. Just a comfortable, safe place to stay. No complaints.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The walls are pretty thin so you can hear your neighbors, but it was quiet during the night. Great value for the location. The pillows are okay if a little small. Overall, we would stay again.

Our family enjoys staying at the Riverside, as they are close to all the great mountains. The staff was friendly, and the rooms were clean. The pricing was reasonable, as we have a family of four so we took the adjoining rooms.

This hotel is pretty new so you can expect the rooms to be clean and up to date. We had a room on the back side and it was very quiet. The attendant at the front desk, Jackie, was very pleasant. I highly recommend this hotel when visiting in the area.
