If has been a few of years since we have stayed at The River Suites. Not only did the owner remember our names but also our choice of rooms. Reasonably priced for the off-season we enjoyed our 4 days in delightful comfort. With spacious rooms and beautiful gas fire place, we were home. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything...

We come here off season every year for the holiday events, parade and sales. The suite has a full kitchen, gas fireplace, small flatscreen TV with Dish/DVD/VCR, king bed and a private deck right on the water. Is it a 4-star in terms of furnishings, no? It's like a nice suburban home with wood floors. You can't beat the location... More

The location of this property is EXCELLENT. It is right on the water, literally just feet out, with a balcony to enjoy in the evening. One of our mornings was rough though because we could hear someone docked right in front, playing music and talking VERY early, but I guess that comes with the territory. The shops are right outside... More

The view and location are awesome. "Most" of the staff are friendly. We stayed there August 2011 for a couple nights. The bathroom needs updating. There is close parking but forget it if you have a big car or SUV. The rates have gone up again in 2012. Would we stay there again? Yes; but we would expect some imrpovement... More

This place has some great features in that it is literally on the edge of the water and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The bedroom has a comfortable king bed and the living area is spacious, as is the sofa bed. But it does not fit my idea of luxury especially in the bathroom which needs an update -... More

Enjoyed our stay at the River Suites but felt using the term luxury to describe it was a bit misleading. When I think of luxury, I think of luxurious soaps, lotions and linen. That was not the case here. Being that we went in the of season we got a great deal on the rate so I'm not complaining :... More

“We head for the north suite which has better furniture.”

“We have seen both rooms- north and south. The north is definitely more spacious but the view from the balcony isn't as wide as the view from the south. The south unit seems more cozy. If you have a fuller family thought, the north unit won't feel as tight.”

“The south suite has a better view from the balcony. The north suite is a bit bigger but it overlooks a riverboat dock where lots of tourists board the riverboat for trips throughout the day.”
