I decided I was tired of staying home, worrying if/when I caught the coronavirus and worrying about what the economy (and my job) would be like after this pandemic has left us. So I decided to not follow our governors stay at home order and come here for a mental health roadtrip. The NE part of Washington is a remote area so it's easy to social distance there.

The Riverview Motel was the only motel in the central part of Pend Oreille county taking guests. Upon arrival, the clerk said I would be the only one there until the weekend. I had room 206 on the top floor with a balcony/lanai overlooking the Pend Oreille river. It was a beautiful location. The room was large, had a microwave and refrigerator (important because I brought my own food) The bed was very comfortable, not too hard and not too soft. The bathroom sink has a lot of counterspace. There is an electric faux fireplace that provided heat. The balcony has great views of the mountains, the river and the town of Ione. There was ample parking and a laundry room if needed. There is some breakfasts and coffee in the motel office but I did not take advantage of that. Its a nice walk from the motel into the town. The town appears to have seen better days. This motel, the large marijuana shop, the grocery store (open until 10pm) and the gas station/convenience store seems to be only thriving businesses in town. I was able to reach the far north, far south, across the river and the highway 20 with ease from this motel and Ione. I feel a lot better because I took this roadtrip and staying at this motel helped. I would stay here again.

Ione is in a beautiful place with few tourist facilities. The owners of the Riverview Motel have done their best to make guests comfortable in the best hotel in town. The beds are soft and heavenly, with luxurious, thick sheets, and it is so quiet there, off the main road. Ask for a river-view room.

A simple, nice breakfast is provided, and there are BBQ facilities and a spacious lounging area overlooking the river. There is a grocery store within walking distance, and the rooms have coffee makers, and small fridge/freezer. WiFi is not like in the big city, but it’s a reason to get out and enjoy nature in that area.

Don't judge a book by its cover is an understatement with this motel. The owners of the establishment were extremely friendly and welcoming up check in. If you have the chance to the select a room with a balcony and river view, the extra price is more than worth. We had the chance to do so and were stunned when we went to our room. Relaxing on the deck while eating dinner and enjoying a drink was so very worth. We will look to stay here again if given then chance in the future.

Our room was clean and pleasant. The view down the Pend Oreilles River (from right outside each room) is really nice. It's a short walk into town if you're so inclined. Guests have access to a shaded patio with barbecue, and a dock on the river with kayaks and bicycles available at no charge. (We enjoyed a kayak paddle.) The owners were friendly and helpful with information.

The area is not excessively "touristy". It provides a nice opportunity for experiencing nature, outdoor adventure and recreation on the water, with points of historical interest. We hiked and drove up the river valley, barely scratching the surface during our 3 days. Local dining opportunities may be basic but the people providing them were friendly and accommodating.

I stayed at the Riverview with 6 women friends and we were very pleased with our stay. The rooms are very clean and updated. The view of the water is the best from the outdoor patio area. There were kayaks to use, which unfortunately we didn't have time to do. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We had a flat tire on a Sunday morning and she arranged for someone to come fix it while we were doing the Lion's Club Railway Ride. You can't get any better service than that.

Despite the short length of day in November this hotel was so cheery. From the lovely hosts (including Mr Michael the cat) couldn’t ask for a more comfortable and clean place. The hosts are also really into holiday lights and have decorated this place with cute decorations. Really nice to come back to after a day of work.

Wow!!! We went for a girls trip to celebrate my birthday. We loved the cleanliness of our rooms.
The rooms were larger than most and beautifully decorated.
The walkway down to the river gave us gorgeous views of the river!
Nice and friendly owners.
They went above and beyond to accommodate our room switch!
I'm looking forward to taking my husband there.
There is so much to see in the surrounding area!

Friendly, clean and a beautiful place to stay! They have kayaks, bikes and a dock to fish and swim off of. The stars are amazing at night on the dock, diamonds in the water! This place is a absolute Gem! All of our relatives stay here to. They have a gorgeous deck that overlooks the river with a bbq and a gas fire pit to keep you warm at night. So much to do and see in this area, and don't forget to float the river if you have time!

Very nice quiet, clean, friendly family owned hotel. Comfortable bed, nice sheets and towels. Has a little dock and BBQ area on the lake. Would definitely recommend. Trip advisor wants me to write more. I can tell you about Sir Michael, the friendliest front desk cat. Or the local pub where we had dinner.
