We were allowed to check in early,which was very helpful.Staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. Our room did not have a river view except for through the bathroom window. The room was dated but clean. The bed was less... More

Close to the highway. Very noisey with semis passing bye all night. Beds need new mattresses. Won't be back. Had to climb stairs with luggage and cooler. No elevator. No desk help in the pm. No ice machines. Patio furniture very uncomfortable.

I stayed at this hotel in June 2016. The first room they tried to give me had been broken into by having the screen cut and the window pushed open. The caretaker was concerned but simply retrieved the key to the adjacent room and continued my check-in. When I arrived at my new room the first thing I did was... More

We stumbled upon this place and are sure glad that we did. The location is not only convenient but offers a nice view of the water. Our room was clean and everything was in working order. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. Would definitely stay again!

This place is a dump. Paid over $130 for a non-river view. The rooms are old. I know it was not cleaned very well b/c there was a Graham cracker underneath my bed. The lamp was dusty. The carpet is disgusting and filthy. The bathroom floor was slippery weird. This room should not be $130, more like $50. The front... More

My husband and I stayed at this motel for a night away without the kids. We were looking for something relatively cheap near the Little River Casino and only paid $99 for the room. We had a single queen room and it served it's purpose as somewhere to just sleep. The room was very small, but clean and neat with... More

Absolutely charming we came for the Hops and Props in Manistee. So happy we chose the Riverside Motel the room was clean had a view of the lake and was pet friendly too for a great value! I would highly recommend this to anyone beats the Traverse city prices and not far from there. Bryan was very friendly and helpful.

Just stayed here over Labor Day Weekend. I booked the room a few months ago and felt like I was taking a gamble because the room was inexpensive and the motel didn't have a website. Based on the previous reviews it didn't seem so bad. I loved it! The whole place has been recently remodeled. The owner/innkeeper Bryan was super... More
