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... More

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... More

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.... More

While visiting friends and family in Petersburg, my wife and I have generally stayed in Springfield. As a result, we didn't always have the time to spend that we would have liked. This hotel (lodge) is located right in Petersburg and solves that problem beautifully. Not only is it conveniently located, but it's rustic appearance adds to the experience. Decorated... More

This is a smaller lodge but still very lovely. The staff was amazing and the pizza and appetizers were tasty. We stopped at the lodge after spending the day in Springfield, and headed to New Salem and the golf course. Our room had a fridge and sink, along with a microwave. The bed was fine and the room was very... More

Staff is super friendly. Room was as advertised. The lounge is very nice. The breakfast could be a bit more, but it is advertised as continental, and that is very much what it is. We stayed in the jacuzzi suite. The jacuzzi tub seemed like it was due a thorough cleaning. The hotel is right on the river, as advertised,... More

The RiverBank Lodge was a great place to stay if you want to go to Lincoln's New Salem. The decor is beautiful and welcoming. The beds are very comfortable and great showers. The continental breakfast has several different items and the front desk was very nice and accommodating.

I was encouraged by the recent positive reviews and pictures online. We had to stay here for a family wedding being held at the nearby winery in the block of rooms that were held. At first glance, all is as promised: dramatic architecture and a "lodge" quality. The following are the reasons for my review: very small room for a... More

Just beyond the New Salem state Park. Continental breakfast is great!! Will be coming back for years to come!!
