We attended a wedding in the country and needed a place to stay the night. Tailem Bend was the closest and the Riverbend was where we stayed.
To be perfectly honest, we weren't expecting much of this place, given its location and target market. Generally you find saggy beds, poor maintenance and upkeep, below average cleanliness, and plenty of wear and tear in these types of motels.
We were very pleasantly surprised to find that this motel was the complete opposite to what we expected. The owners have had the place for about 2 years and you can see that they have worked very hard to bring this motel up to a standard far better than most. Everything was freshly painted in contemporary colours, the carpet was quite new and clean, the bed comfortable, the bathroom fittings were new, and the overall cleanliness of the room was of a 5 star standard. It had a decent digital TV, perfectly clean bar fridge, and decent tea and coffee facilities.
Its not the Hyatt, but for what it is, this place punches well above its weight. You can book a room here with confidence.
