It looks like they're serious about improving it. They had worker (apparently non-union) working on Thanksgiving. Room was clean, if unattractive. Contained a filthy couch. Bed was comfortable, hallways were quiet enough to get sleep. It got the job done, and is by far the least expensive hotel near downtown Grand Rapids. Have stayed here twice coming to GR for...

This hotel is in a great spot by the river with a cool little bar downstairs. We had a bad afternoon but once we booked this place everything changed, We had a great night and Hillary at the front desk was super helpful with everything. Shuttle service stopped early though, which was a bummer.

This hotel was unbelievable, do not stay here! Not safe, not clean, food was horrible, under construction with wiring exposed. Seems to cater to the homeless as people seem to be coming late at night and leave early in the morning.

Positive first: Friendly employees, Check in area clean & updated. Beds comfortable. We understood they were under construction. By the look of our room, we couldn't tell if they were done or had started! Walls had black dirt on them, Carpeting pulled up in parts, yet the floor in entry way of our room had tile that appeared to be... More

DO NOT GO TO THIS HOTEL! I don't even know where to start...I will start by saying the hotel was under construction so there were issues based around poor construction planning, but you can tell they are trying to improve their location so that is the only benefit of the doubt this establishment will receive from me. Most of the... More

I am so disappointed with this hotel. My boyfriend, sister, brother-in-law, and I stayed at the Riverfront Hotel in Grand Rapids on Friday, October 7th. I made the reservation through Booking.com, and when we arrived, the hotel didn't have our reservation. They corrected it, found us a room, warned us of the ongoing renovations (which were NOT mentioned during booking),... More

My husband and I stayed here and the windows were covered with plastic, due to painting on the outside. We had a riverfront view room with no view. The lounge was dirty and smelled of old cigarettes and the seats were ripped and mildewed. The wait staff looked at us three times, and we sat for over a half an... More

A group of us stayed in a couple of rooms as a place to stay after visiting the bars and restaurants in downtown Grand Rapids. It was a little further from the city than we expected but we got an uber for around $5. Rooms are just ok.

This is one of TwoInMaine's very few "Poor" reviews. But the Riverfront in late summer 2016 is a sad reminder that location and affordability sometimes come at a price. This is a rundown, not-very-clean, not-very-well-maintained hotel that must have seen better days. The room was comfortable, but a premium paid for "river view" neglected to mention the low building roof... More

We had a room in 6th floor with the river view. The view wasn't something you would die for but I guess it was better than no view at all. Other than that the room served its purpose. The service wasn't extra friendly. And the hotel is a bit far from the city center. However they offer the shuttle to/from... More
