Dated but clean with Fridge, sink, utensils for cooking on cooktop, microwave, comfortable beds. Food Store across parking lot with decent prices. Used travel coupon we picked up at Rest Stop. Night host who checked us in was very informative, since he was a local we asked what places had good food. Unfortunately we did not get his name. Inside...

Not a bad motel but not great either. We just need a place to crash and just pulled into the first one we noticed. It did the trick but the beds are very uncomfortable and leave you with a stiff back. My husband took a shower then walked across the carpet with bare feet and they were BLACK!

This was my second time staying at Riverside Motor Lodge and I was not disappointed from check-in to check-out. The room was clean and well kept for an older establishment, the in room refrigerator came in handy and the jacuzzi was very refreshing. I would recommend the hotel to anyone needing a nice quiet getaway.

We stayed at Riverside at a last minute decision due to Hurricane Matthew. The room decor was dated as others have mentioned, but our room wasn't run down looking, but well kept. It was very clean, the beds were super comfy and we could walk to Food City (grocery store) next door if you wanted to cook in, as it...
