This hotel was very nice to stay at and very convenient with its location and space. The hotel has definitely improved from the last time i had stayed here and i believe that has to do with the new management there. The rooms are very spacious and clean, the staff they have there are wonderful and very professional. Would recommend...

This hotel is in terrible condition. The roof leaks and the carpeting is stained. The sign outside the hotel is falling off. The heat does not work in the rooms. When I made a complaint to the manager, he was rude.

Well this motel certainly isn't the "Red Lion" but it sufficed. The beds were most definitely the most comfy we’ve ever had and the pool was the biggest and deepest. The A/C is perfect and it’s nice and quiet. The management are the sweetest ladies you’ll meet, but don’t be fooled they can be stern when it comes to money....

I've been coming here since 1999. Only once did we regret our stay. It's always best to contact the hotel, and spend a little bit of time, explaining your concerns. The River Inn was JUST placed under new management. I spoke with the old owner and explained my concerns about the old smells (carpet). I was placed in a great...

If you are looking for a sterile cookie-cutter bige hotel then do NOT stay here. This place is old and a little worn but it has character. The room was clean, it had access to the outside and it was quiet. Also it is right on the river, but I5 is on the other side so stay in a room...
