This is an older hotel that was renovated. The owners obviously take pride in it. The room smelled musty but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. We will definitely stay here again if we pass by.

I cannot say enough good things about this motel, especially the desk clerk Vicki, she went out of her way to see that all our needs were met. It is very close to the interstate, and in a very nice area. Very clean rooms, great breakfast. Thanks Vicki for making our stay a very pleasant one.

Stayed one night at BW Riverside 8/6/16. Lovely lobby, friendly helpful Vicky greeted us and directed us to our room, gave us the skinny on breakfast. This is an older hotel, but very nicely updated. GREAT beds and showers! Enjoyed their full size pool, and a great breakfast next morning. What a DEAL!!

Hotel is older and needs updated. No elevators and the hallways are HOT!!! There is a bar there and people were yelling in the hallway at 2am. Room has smoking and HDTV. Internet speed is okay. Think I'll try something else next time. They do have smoking rooms.

Honestly I went with best western over choice hotels because I wanted a nice night. Gosh, I'm sorry I did. The hotel smelled really really bad. Carpet was dirty. Although I didn't see any I was afraid of bugs. The pool and breakfast was good but the smell was unbearable.

This hotel was worth the extra exit past all the food chains. Our room was very quiet. The beds were some of the best we've seen and we stay in a lot of hotels due to our travels. The room was very clean. Our check in was quick and easy with a very nice older gentleman taking care of us.... More

Stayed a night here on the way to Disney with family friends. Just a room to sleep in. Can't say much other than the free breakfast was good and the room seemed clean. Check in and out were a breeze. Enjoy!

This hotel is very nice; the hotel room was excellent. Traveling alone, I felt very secure and safe. The price was a bit high for the area. One exit North is much more populated with restaurants and storesl

I was only passing through for one night, needing two rooms not pre-booked. Both ground floor rooms were clean and pleasant with good amenaties including a fridge and strong wi-fi. The beds were comfortable with good quality linen and pillows. The breakfast was good quality and varied and perfect for the short stay with an attached bar and nearny restaurants.
