“Great Place, Great Price!”
Reviewed August 2, 2006

Stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed it. Management was very good; extra towels were no problem, ice machine was convenient and we were even given coupons to local restaurants. Motel was clean and comfortable with plenty of room. Pool was clean, as was pool area and a picnic area with grills was available for our use. We requested a ground floor unit because of a handi-capped child and were offered another unit with grab bar equipped bathroom if the room assigned did not suit our needs. We considered the price very reasonable and will go there again if the opportunity presents itself.

The Steinhatchee River Inn can no longer be called the Bates Motel!
The new manager is personable and responsive to the motel guests. It is nice to be at a place where you are treated like a welcomed guest, but a staff that is actually glad you are at their motel.

If you ever stayed at the River Inn in the past, give it another try! The new manager is a welcome change to the old long term managers. No longer are the days when the manager runs out of the office right at 9:00 p.m. to kick everyone out of the pool. No longer are the days of unreasonable motel rules, like going to the office for them to fill your ice bucket because the ice machine is locked or all of the rude and unnecessary signs.

We had a great time and are glad to see the change!

Stayed July 2006

Stayed here one night Oct 13th, 2004. The room was clean but a bit musty, The ice machine is locked but if you go to the office they will fill your ice bucket. Room had microwave, refrigerator and coffee pot. We were very pleased. I would return.

L have stayed here a few times and always had the worst service and the people(the management) have always been rude and never seem to have our reservation or if we make a reservation and tell them to put it on a credit card they won't do it then . They demand you pay when you get there, saying we never were told to put it on your credit card or some other lame excuse, also the pool is only open until the sun goes down and the ice cooler is padlocked before the time the say you can use it until. I would advise anyone to go somewhere else instead of staying here
