Stayed for three nights on a recent trip to the area. Hotel is easy to find, common areas are very nice and comfortable, room was clean and comfortable - although the layout was a little awkward. Staff were pleasant. Breakfast was available but we chose to eat at the very good diner immediately across the street. Plenty of parking.

Stayed last weekend to do some filming for the nearby Haunted Attraction - Terror in the Graveyard. Easy reservations - reasonable price. Loved the lobby. My stay was a few hours overnight because of the amount of work we were doing - but I would gladly stay here again and explore the area further. Someone left a sweater in the...

We were meeting friends who live in Petersburg to travel to another location. We drove down from Chicago and stayed the night at the RiverBank Lodge. They have a small bar room so we met our friends there for a drink. We then went to a small, informal restaurant across the street for dinner. The room was nice and clean....

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It was clean, the room was nice sized, the bed was comfy, the breakfast adaquate, and the staff very friendly. Our room looked out towards the railroad tracks and the river, did not hear the train at all.

Upon arriving at the lodge we were impressed by the outside grounds and the main lobby as they were clean and nicely decorated. We had booked, and paid extra, for the corner room with a hot tub, and were looking forward to a long soak after dinner. However, the hot water ran out before the tub was even full enough...

We have used this facility now for our third extended family reunion. And they never disappoint. We were able to book nice rooms at attractive rates, utilize the downstairs food preparation area and conference room for our noon and evening meals, and spend quiet time visiting in the wonderful lobby area. The management is wonderful to work with. They helped...

My husband booked the large king suite. It was a great room on the first floor just steps away from the front desk, lobby and lounge. There are only 25 or so rooms in the entire place so it was very quiet on a Thursday night. There is a short wall separating the room into a sitting area and the...

If you're looking for luxury, don't look here. The room was probably the smallest I've ever been in while in the U.S. - a bed, side table, and arm chair. That's it. No dresser, no closet, not even hangers to put clothes on on the pull-out arm from the wall. Overhead fluorescent light and acoustical ceiling tile. Probably 20 feet...

We prefer "mom and pop" places where there is a place to sit outside and some scenery. We found this lodge by accident and so glad we did! Clean rooms, wonderful staff, free entertainment (Whirl Peas in the parking lot)....a great way to spend our last night on the road!! We'll definitely go back!

We were at this lodge for a family wedding and our group had most of the rooms. The staff was pleasant and helpful in every way. The lodge is in the middle of a nice old town that had some really cool old houses. The lodge was in a former bank building and was what I guess is retro rustic....
