I recently stayed at Riverview Inn, to celebrate my husband's birthday. I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was so pleasant and accomodating, we were in room # 11 the lighthouse room. It was very clean and the AC worked really good. The grounds were kept very well. They gave us free spring water daily which I loved because it was extremely hot outside. They had menus of all the nearby restaurants in a binder in the room. Demetrius was so nice and made sure we were happy the entire time. He even agreed to take our picture in front of the hotel. Such a nice guy. I would definitely stay here again.

Happy belated birthday to your husband -- we're honored you chose to celebrate with us! The best escapes are the ones where you just sit back, relax, and don't have to lift a finger. Thank you for letting us pamper you both! Hope to see you back for another celebration soon. -The Riverview Inn

I always thought the colorful, shabby motel must have been a stellar attraction in its heyday. It’s now restored to its 1950s glory, with all the features that make it a real gem today. Although the look of the place is what attracted us, our positive experience is what will have us coming back again. Our room was clean and nicely furnished with good quality linens and towels. The decor gave it a comfy beach vibe. The staff was friendly and accommodating. A shout-out to Shirley, who made us feel most welcome... The location was ideal for us two “oldies” and our ten-year-old grandson. Only a half-block from the beach! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we’ll return whenever we can.

In this case, we're glad you judged a book by its cover! We're also glad that we lived up to the expectations of our outward appearance. Thanks so much for choosing to get away with us. We look forward to having you both and your grandson back soon! Best, The Riverview Inn

Our first visit to the Riverview Inn and we would definitely stay again! I love the look of a midcentury motel, and this one has been beautifully renovated. Our room was super cute and comfy (air conditioning and Roku a HUGE plus), and the staff, led by manager Dimitrius, were very friendly and helpful. It's about 25 steps to Colonial Beach and pier, and the Inn has a lovely outdoor area in front - a great place to drink morning coffee before we took a walk around town. Reasonably priced, extra clean, great staff. A gem for sure!

Second time visiting and enjoyed my stay again. Comfortably and cozy rooms just a block from the beach. Will be staying again in the future. The surrounding is quiet and small...easy to get around, with a few family oriented businesses

If you’re looking for a reasonably priced getaway from DC or Central Virginia, you can’t go wrong at the Riverview Inn. Located conveniently in a block from the river in Colonial Beach, the newly-renovated 1950’s motel is clean and updated with all the modern conveniences you need for a few days of fun, sun, and seafood. My wife and I definitely be staying at the Riverview Inn again. Hopefully soon.
