“Average to Very Good Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Generally, I was very happy with my stay - clean, safe and economical. There were some small problems with staffing and room amenities. For example, the breakfast is not complementary. Nothing that would keep me from staying there again. A really appreciated a free shuttle from the train station. I would say this is an excellent family hotel because of their swimming pool. For me it was a bit noisy.

We stopped at this hotel after a meeting in Minneapolis going home to Chicago. The staff was very helpful and professional. Our room was by the pool even thought we didn't have any children. It was clean and didn't smell of chlorine and not at all noisy from those enjoying the pool. This would be a great place for a young family and the price was right. Ate dinner at the restaurant. Service and food was super. Glad we did this because I didn't want to drive any additional miles. They had a DJ at the docking area and there was a beautiful view of the river. Very nice hotel Lance Darien, IL

We stayed in a pool side corner room, it was very large and CLEAN, I do wish there would be a sink outside of the bathroom as we were getting ready to attend a wedding. I had called ahead of time to see if room could be ready a little early so we could get settled in before the wedding. If I remember right, we were able to get in a little early. Since it was a poolside room, I was expecting it to be somewhat noisy...however that is not what noise that bothered me, that night it was the people coming in from the side door. The door to our room could have had a slightly snugger fit. I ended up putting a towel under door to block out noise. The breakfast had some variety and the staff was great that day. However overall the food was not that great, which was not the staff's fault. The pool area was clean and we had fun there. The dock looked like it could use some upkeep and grounds in back could use a little sprucing up. Overall the stay was fine and the place is roomy enough.

Lovely hotel on Black River with boat docks behind motel. Nice Tiki bar and deck. Excellent Happy hour prices for drinks. Pool has small water slide for the kids. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice Hot Tub and plenty of pool towels. Pool was nice temperature but not much room to swim due to slide.

Short staffed, the outdoor restaurant food was not good, steaks had no flavor, I actually had to get A1 for my Ribeye! My wife's ribs tasted spoiled and the service was not good either. The hot tub in the indoor water area sucked, no pressure at all but the pool looked OK for kids they were having fun. The rooms were OK, haven't checked out the bar yet, but don't think we'll be coming back.

Maybe good for kids. Not good for older people who can not handle stairs. Kids dominate the pool and hot tub from open to close. You can not escape the noise until the close the pool for the night. Breakfast included with room was minimal and very disorganized. Staff was good.

The riverfront hotel by best western is a great hotel especially for business travelers. great staff. great clean rooms, phenomenal restaurant (get their wings!). it also has an indoor pool, which while noisy if you are staying in that area, is a great feature if you were to maybe have your family come along on a trip. They also have many rooms away from the indoor pool area (actually it is a mini waterpark) where you don't hear that noise. They have a standard breakfast in the morning but if you happen to be there on the day they server french toast, you get to start your day off right!
