“So gross I didn't want to touch anything”
Reviewed January 20, 2006

This hotel went beyond simply "faded glory" and straight on into "total fleabag"

Our room featured the following amenities:
- used bar of soapin the bathroom
- half-empty bottles of shampoo
- rat feces in the water glasses
- mysterious brown stains on the sheets
- a 4-foot-square patch of rotting drywall
- mold infestation so bad that we were sneezing nonstop
- lampshades so old and dirty that they were literally falling apart
- oily face-prints and boogers on the windows
- a shower so disgusting that my husband went out and bought bleach and a scrub-brush

If we hadn't been travelling with others, we would have checked out immediately. As it was, we left the next morning.

Reviewed June 12, 2005

Let me just start by saying that the only reason that I have given the Diamond Riverside Hotel a one star vote is because the web form did not have the option to give it the zero star rating that it deserves. The room that I stayed in was incredibly run down and dirty including holes and cigarette burns in the bed linens, brown stains on the towels, towel rack hanging off of the wall and used cotton buds left in the bathroom and inside the wardrobe by previous guests. The staff were not very friendly and were unhelpful with any questions on how to get to local sites. The breakfast buffet was plagued by ants which was off putting to say the least. I would not recommend for anyone to stay at this hotel regardless of the price or location.
