Tucson, AZ
Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We had an overnight at the River on our way from AZ to WA. It is a good value - nice room, comfy bed, modern bathroom, clean - an inexpensive room that suited us just fine. The best part was visiting with Eris - the 80 something year old receptionist who has been there 30 years and is just a...

Hi, DVMeyer.. We like to think of Eris as a fine wine...she just keeps getting better. Thank you for choosing The River Inn on your recent trip to Lassen County from Tucson. We hope you had a totally pleasant time and that we'll have the pleasure of your safe return to use in the near future. :-)

We stayed in the River Inn Susanville for one night. The room was clean and well equipped although the bathroom was a little dated, it did not however impact negatively on our stay. Breakfast was not included in our rate but the restaurant situated in the same carpark do a great breakfast. This restaurant also does evening meals as does...

I'm at hotel as I write this. The hotel is like an old, old motel 6. The office smells like they smoke openly. The lady was nice. My young daughter and wife felt very uncomfortable with room, since it appears there are people living in their cars in parking lot. First was a Honda with a couple. Guy drivers seat...

Greetings, Alfredo. Please know we totally understand your feelings and your business is very important to us. We share your disdain for interlopers and have a zero tolerance for anyone sleeping in their vehicle - including guests who can't get along with one another. Our front-desk team member alerted our maintenance staff and our local police about the individuals you...

We needed a place to stay on our way home from a camping trip in Death Valley. The River Inn is clean and well-located downtown. The staff was friendly. Our room smelled like cigarettes but we were quickly moved to another. This place has everything we need at a great price.

Hi, Bruce S... Sorry the guest before you smoked in our non-smoking room. Thanks for bringing to our attention so we could move you quickly to another room. We appreciate your review and hope we'll have the pleasure of your return soon! :-)

We came to this place to stay while we were on vacation here in Susanville. We were happy to the nice room here. It was on the large side and very clean. Check in was a breeze. They're pet friendly here and charged 11.00 for our Chihuahua to stay here but they also gave us a senior discount so it...

Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Reviewed 20 October 2016

We reserved the River Inn for a summer weekend at a rate that seemed to be too good to be true, and were therefore a little wary as we pulled into the lot along the commercial strip. The lobby in this older building has not been updated in a few decades, but check in was very friendly. We parked at...

Hi, CorpsofDiscovery... Glad you made way to the River Inn during part of your California journey from Milwaukee, Wisconsin! Thanks for sharing your experience with other travelers on our TripAdvisor page. The reversed faucet in your room was due to a construction error. Once discovered, and without tearing out the the plumbing in the complete space to fix it, the...

Motels - well you get what you pay for and for our price we thought it was great. Call direct and get the best price (always do that if you can). It was clean, a microwave, little fridge, and they provided coffee and a danish in the morning to get you going (located at the check in area). The staff...

Greetings, Bunchkin... Thanks for taking a minute to reach back out to us on our TripAdvisor page. We believe that you don't have to sacrifice amenities for value and, in addition to our on-site guest laundry area, having a mini-fridge and microwave in each room helps your travel budge to a lot further. We hope your journey back to Canada...

We were tired after a long day of driving... I jumped on TripAdvisor to hopefully find a room in Susanville. I was able to secure a booking at the River Inn. Upon arrival they did not have our reservation! Thankfully the kind desk clerk ( who has been there since 1976), found us a small room near the exterior stairs...

We stopped in Susanville because there was a huge motorcycle convention in Reno, so had to find something fast. I called and was able to get a room at River Inn. It was not cheap, due in part, to the $15 added for my dog. The room was 'OK'.... not updated or very clean. With the water shortage in Northern...

We made reservations two weeks in advance but when we arrived we were told we could not have a ground floor room because a baseball team had reserved them all.

Hi, Victor... Please know we're sorry you were disappointed. We wish we could have moved you to a lower room; however, the Booking dot Com reservation you made did not mention the need for a lower room, only the 'type' of room. As you saw, both a baseball team and a Wild Fire Crew took up every other room we...
