This place is closed and for sale. It's a lovely location but it needs a lot of work. We stayed here a few years back. The service was terrible. I guess that why it closed. The Rivers Edge is down the road plus there are single family homes for rent. Some of the housed are dog friendly.

Room 21 with a view. End room was half round with a view of everything including the sunrise on the river. Sitting on balcony at night listening to band at tiki bar and looking at river was awesome. Keep in mind this is a very old motel, small rooms, but it was very clean, with knotty pine and nautical décor.... More

We checked into this hotel as it was within eyesight of the restaurant. For $72, we expected a little more. The room was old and tiny, but we stayed since we didn't know of any other hotels. It had a pleasant view of the river. The WiFi didn't work and overall, it was a very unpleasant place. The next morning... More

My husband and I stayed at the Review Inn the Labor Day weekend. The room was very clean, clean towels, sheets. The people were very friendly, the owner was very, very nice. She has warm hospitality. It was close to all of the attractions. We would come and stay again.

I have been coming to Colonial Beach for 30 years. I have always stayed here at The Riverview Inn with my family and friends.

If you need to know where to go... More

This place is a dump. Do not even think about it!!!!!!! Everything was dirty and the manager should have worked at a truck stop. Do not wast your money.

If you want to walk over trash bags and dirty sheets go here. Some people call this hotel home. With only one room, the people hang out on the steps and walkway. There are very nice houses you can rent. It is not the retro place they say it is.
