i had a 2 week stay at Riverview last month. I had to do some work at Boundary Dam and it was the closest place I could find lodging available. The lady owner was extremely helpful. She called me back twice telling me there were days available whereas I would have had to move to Colville. The rooms ware cozy, clean, and the balcony room I stayed in had a fabulous view of the lake in the evening. If I would have to go back, I would take the 20-30 minutes drive just to repeat the experience.
While on a tour of eastern BC and Washington, Ione was chosen as a rest stop. We had little information about the town, but did find the Riverview via the NET. Well..... that was a lucky find..... this is a super little motel. The property has a very nice feel as you drive up! The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and spacious, the Patio overlooking the river is great, day or night, sitting on the dock is awesome, and the owners are splendid people. If you are in the area, this is a winner of a place to stay, you won't be disappointed!
It's hard to pick the best part of our stay here. If I had to it would have to be that the owners really cared about making sure everyone enjoyed their stay. They spend a lot of time with us recommending things to do and places to see nearby. They loaned us binoculars and bird books. There were kayaks available so we took a paddle on the river. They provided a beautiful and well stocked BBQ area that overlooked the river. They also provided breakfast items since there was no breakfast cafe in town. The location couldn't be better. On a small bluff overlooking the Pend Oreille river. It was a short walk down to the pier for kayaking, swimming or fishing. The views from the motel were outstanding. The rooms were very clean, modern and spacious. It felt like they were recently renovated. The rooms were also very quiet. An all-around nice place. I would definitely go back.…
While on a supported bicycle trip with thirteen riders we stayed at the Riverview. Great location, reasonably priced and the rooms were very nice. Marion is very accommodating; we were offered a BBQ to cook our dinner (well stocked grocery store nearby) and they also have a great lakefront patio with plenty of seating and nice views of the water. Several of our riders even ventured in for a nice refreshing swim. In the morning we were offered a pop-up canopy as it had started to rain slightly while setting up for our group breakfast. First class operation. Would absolutely stay there again.
The setting is perfect. Very nice outdoor deck overlooking the river. Our room was clean and comfortable and well-maintained. Our bed was on the soft side, so if you need a firm mattress, it could be an issue.
