Congratulations on the birth of your baby. I know it is difficult to balance work life with family life and we want all of our guests to feel at home at The Riverside.

We will be looking into it as we make updates to the hotel.

Great get away with my wife, I recommend a river view room and the breakfast buffet was the best. The rooms were large and clean, the lounge offers live music and the food was outstanding. The adjoining bike path along the river offered a pleasant diversion.

The staff was super friendly and i would like to say that Trace and Taelynn at the front desk were just super awesome and accommodating. I truly hope the upper management know how lucky they are to have these two employees in their corner.

"The hotel is very long; those having trouble walking to the lobby and restaurant should make sure to be close."
"remodeled rooms with river view"
"get a balcony or patio room that over looks the river"
"government business, I do not know the cost of the room."
"If you reserve a 'river view' room, make sure it has been renovated. This is an older property and it is showing it's age."
US$ 118 - US$ 225 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
