The exterior doesn't say much about the place, but the rooms are nicely maintained. We originally reserved a regular room through hotels.com, for a reasonable price, but decided to upgrade to a suite. The people at the reception desk were accommodating and allowed us to just pay the difference.
The standard room was nice and spacious; had a mini fridge and a microwave. The one big downside was that it only had a shower. No tub. It was a large, spacious shower, large enough to fit a tub, but without a tub. That was the main reason, we decided to move to a suite. The suite had a shower and a tub; a mini fridge and a microwave, just like the standard room. But... it had a red heart-shaped tub in the room as well. It was totally kitsch, but cute. It was fun.
The bed was comfortable, and it was overall quiet in the whole facility. It is also close to downtown Riverside, where you can visit the Mission Inn and other local boutiques and restaurants.
I would stay here again.
