“Generally a good place to stay”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Bed/mattress too firm. If you enjoy a bed that's very firm with no give whatsoever, this is the place for you. No elevator. Breakfast ends too early at 9am on the weekend. No cover to unload luggage in the pouring rain. Hope it's not pouring rain for you. Otherwise it's a nice place to stay with large clean rooms and good staff.

The room was very clean, in excellent repair, very comfortable bed and pillows! It was the best sleep I've ever had in a hotel. Also was very quiet and the bathroom was impeccable! I loved the shampoo, soap dispensers!

Room was very comfortable and beds were great. Quiet and restful night. Breakfast had lots to offer including hot items like eggs and sausage. Great place to stay when visiting Red Wing. Easy access to main highway.

Our stay in Red Wing at the Best Western Rivertown Inn & Suites was wonderful! We were greeted by a friendly front desk attendant who was very helpful. The owner was there and at our request, suggested some points of interest that we might enjoy. The lobby was warm and had an inviting seating area facing the fireplace. How lovely on a chilly, rainy afternoon. Our room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Everything was neat and clean. We enjoyed the pool, which allows you to swim between indoor and outdoors. In the morning, we were very pleased to have a large array of hot and cold items to select from for our breakfast. Everything we enjoyed was delicious. We were very happy with our stay, and would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: The queen double suite we had was very spacious, with a pleasant seating area by the window.

We stayed at the Best Western Rivertown in Red Wing MN over this past weekend. We had taken our two grandkids for an overnight and enjoyed the hotel so much. The rooms were super clean,the beds were comfortable and the sheets were really nice and all rooms have a flat screen TV's. The kids so enjoyed the pool that you can actually swim to the outside pool (even in the winter). They played table games that were supplied by the hotel staff as we watched the news on a large flat screen TV in the lobby ( which was comfortably furnished). The staff were just wonderful and the owner showed us all the theme rooms, in her spare time, like the "Vintage Cabin", "Pyramid Room" "Roman Bath" and the " Monkey Room" to name a few, the children will always remember the grand tour of the hotel. The lobby always had hot coffee with real cream, hot chocolate, muffins & fruit.
Our stay was a great experience and would highly recommend to all.

Room Tip: All good rooms. Although no elevator to 2nd floor.

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your quality time with the grand kids! I so enjoyed giving them the tour of the hotel<3. Loved their comments about which rooms were their favorites! Truly delightful to hear the laughter from the children while playing in the pool. Can't wait to see you and your hubby on a return trip. Vintage Cabin, Pyramid or Trade Winds(aka, Monkey Room)? We will leave the porch light on.Thanks again for sharing your thoughtful comments.

I stayed one night recently while in town for a performance at the Sheldon Theater of Performing Arts. What a great find. While truly a bit hard to find if your'e coming from Wisconsin as it's not well marked from 61 South, I enjoyed a very quiet stay. The property is located adjacent to a Perkin's on the west side of Hwy 61, directly across the highway from the Red Wing Pottery shopping complex. The property is 2 stories, with NO elevator. Be prepared to carry your luggage and belongings up carpeted, indoor steps. All room access was indoors, which is contrary to several other Best Western locations where you access your room from the outside.

The lobby was welcoming with a fireplace and large overstuffed chairs and sofas. The lobby included a computer and printer for guest use. There was free coffee & tea available in the lobby at all times. Connected to the lobby was the indoor pool area, which I did not use. There's also an outdoor pool area, closed for the winter.

My room was clean, comfortable, and while a bit cool, warmed up nicely when I was able to dial up the heat myself. A nice large new flat screen television was affixed to the wall, which is smart in allowing guests to use the entire space of the top of the dresser if needed. There was a fridge and microwave in my room and a small table. Wifi was free and worked well.

Breakfast was in a room on the lower level and featured DIY waffles, tangerines, bananas, cold & hot cereal choices, juices, bagels, toast options, yogurts, and more. The breakfast seating area is quite limited - perhaps 15 seats at the most.

The front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful and i wouldn't hesitate to stay at this property again.
