“relaxing”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Love the riverside. Each room has beautiful river views. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are large and lovely. Even if you don't splurge for a balcony view there is a huge veranda over looking the river that can be accessed from the lobby. There are nice chairs to sit and relax. One of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: There is no near or on site restaurant, so you will need to get back in the car.

Spur of the moment get away.....familiar with area but had never stayed there....usually booked up when I've checked it out in the past....It's a hidden gem..on the Ct river It's right over the bridge from Rt..91 Exit 3 Brattleboro Vt....small hotel, 34 rooms all rooms face the river......stayed Sun. & Mon.....romantic and quiet...beautiful rooms, average continental breakfast.....The Front Desk Mgr., friendly and courteous, went out of his way to contact ALA for us and follow up with timeline for arrival. (I accidentally left interior light on and battery died). Frank even offered to use his car to jump my battery if I had cables, even asked his employees if they had cables....anyways ALA finally arrived and a quick jump solved my problem and we were on our way back home. Enjoyed our couple of days.
Will definitely stay at the Riverside Hotel on our next trip to the area.

Our experience at the Riverside Hotel was distinctly mixed. When we arrived, there was no one at the front desk. There were several staff members setting up tables in an adjacent room, and we eventually got their attention, but they weren't able to get someone to check us in. After about 10-15 minutes, a person did finally show up and let us check in. The room itself was spacious and comfortable, but expensive. Our stay overnight was fine, and the room was in a quiet location, as we'd requested.

The breakfast the next morning was utterly dismal. There were a few types of sugary cereals, a few so-so bananas, and nothing else but white bread and white bagels. We were there in early August, but there was no local fruit or even a selection of canned fruit. We were so bummed out that we just left. I've had much better breakfast buffets at hotels that cost 1/3 of what we paid here. How much would it have cost these folks to stock some raisin bran, whole wheat bread, some hard-boiled eggs, and fresh blueberries during the peak of New England blueberry season?

Thank you for providing the hotel with valuable constructive feedback to help us improve the hotel. The situations you described are not typical at Riverside Hotel and we are sincerely sorry that it wasn't the experience you expected. In our defense, there was a wedding ceremony and reception starting in the hotel at the time you arrived. I apologize someone wasn't there to greet you more promptly. We have now planned to have additional staff scheduled to meet all the hotel needs when there are events.
The breakfast comments also do not represent the Riverside Hotel the way most guests experience it. Granted, we have a simple, continental breakfast, but we do not portray it to be more than that. We do have assorted muffins, assorted bagels (plain, cinnamon-raisin, sesame, poppy-seed, wheat, and onion) yogurts, assorted cold cereals, oatmeal, and fresh bananas.

The staff and management of the Riverside Hotel pride themselves on superior service and exceptional quality of of our property. Again, I apologize that the experience didn't meet your expectations.

We used this hotel as an overnight stop to break our drive between Burlington & Provincetown. We opted to pay slightly more to stay at Riverside (above other available chain motel options) as the rooms looked so much nicer. I think we made the right choice.

The room (basic king) was large, clean and comfortable with a lovely river view. The bed was big and very comfortable and we didn't hear any traffic noise despite our room being close to the bridge.

Breakfast is completely self service and all paper plates/plastic cutlery which was fine for us. There was sufficient choice of bagels, muffins, yogurt, cereal and fruit.

The receptionist was helpful with information about dining options & parking in Brattleboro for the evening. Brattleboro is a short drive away (10 minutes) but there are some restaurants even closer on the main road into town.

My only comment is that it would have been nice to have proper glasses and cups in the room rather than paper/take out style.

Overall, great value and I wish we'd had longer to enjoy the hotel and the local area.

Room Tip: If we'd been here for longer and on a warm day, would have chosen to pay slightly more for a bal...

Thank you for sharing your experience of Riverside Hotel. The location is quite unique in the fact it is situated right on the Connecticut River which affords the guests terrific views from every room, it is right on the border of NH and VT(with only short drives to both Brattleboro and Keene), and within 1/2 mile of exit 3 off I-91 in VT.
In response to the comment about wine glasses; we do have them available, just not in every room. Please ask at the front desk and we will be happy to provide them to you.
We're glad you found us, gave us a chance, and enjoyed your stay!

We stayed at the Riverside Hotel last month after a mixup in my reservations at another hotel. It was fortunate that there was a room available since it was move-in weekend at Landmark College. We were very pleased with the hotel. The rooms were large, clean, and well-appointed. The first night we stayed in a larger room then moved to a smaller room for the remainder of the stay. The only complaint I had was that the A/C didn't work well in the larger room. Other than that, the place was great. Beautiful location on the river. Staff was very nice. The breakfast was basic, no frills, but that's OK.

We were very satisfied with our stay and look forward to coming back later this month.

We stayed at Riverside for three nights while visiting Vermont in August. Very convenient to Brattleboro (less than 10 minutes away). The rooms were large and comfortable, with refrigerator, large bathroom, comfortable sleep number bed. Very clean in all areas of the hotel. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was pretty basic, not quite up to Hampton standards--no waffles, no eggs! But plenty of yogurt, tea, water, bagels, bananas. Nice walking in adjacent street along the river which leads to a county park. And as everyone mentions, great views of the the river from the rooms. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed on third floor, very nice balcony. Elevator sometimes got busy over the weekend, necessit...

Riverside Hotel is located at the edge of New Hampshire, immediately before the bridge to Vermont and a few miles north of Brattelboro. Right on the edge of the Connecticut River, it has a peaceful and beautiful site and the balconies for many of the rooms offer an opportunity to sit and enjoy peaceful mornings and evenings. Its location permits one to visit Brattelboro and rural Vermont. The rooms are large and well furnished and the staff are helpful. The rates, including continental breakfast, are reasonable. An excellent choice if you are passing through the area.

Room Tip: ask for a second floor room with balcony

Wolfgang,

Thank you for your review. We appreciate you taking the time to share your comments. All the features you mentioned are great points about the hotel. The rooms are definitely larger than most hotels rooms and the balconies bring you that much closer to the beautiful surroundings our setting has to offer. Thank you for staying with us!
