Las Vegas, Nevada
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Rooms were large with microwave and refrigerator. Two sinks made it nice for 2 people getting ready. Best of all, the air conditioning/heating system was quiet. Great breakfast buffet with made to order omelets. Close to downtown and the greenbelt walking/biking path.

My stay at the Riverside Hotel was tremendous! The staff was outstanding, friendly and courteous. I had a great experience staying at this Hotel. The rooms were clean. There was a lot of construction going on as the Hotel is remodeling. However, what really set this place apart was the staff and their service. Everyone was friendly and very helpful....

Our room was comfortable and clean. The staff were pleasant, especially in the restaurant. Breakfast for guests is complimentary and every dinner entree we tried was delicious. It was very nice to be able to access the walk along the river during the day. If I'm ever in Boise again that will be my first choice for accommodations out of...

Despite hotel remodel and major events occurring the same weekend, the rooms were clean, nice, and well appointed. Staff throughout the hotel were pleasant and professional and the breakfast buffet is a great bonus. I would stay there again.

We've stayed there twice. Each time, the staff was very nice, the room was clean and comfortable. Guests are invited to eat in the restaurant for lunch or dinner with a 20% off coupon as well as eat breakfast for free.

Just home from an 11-day trip to the Midwest and back to Oregon to pick up a daughter from college. Stayed here on the way out and the way back.

The Riverside Hotel is a classic. The design and accommodations are from a time that modern hotel chains will never get a hold on. This does not mean the Riverside is not modern, it is, but they didn't double the room numbers by cutting them in half. They didn't cut the staff down either. There are plenty of professional people...

I arrived quite late, so I was a bit worried when I promptly lost my key card. Hotel staff made me a new one with no hassle. In the morning I went to breakfast expecting the typical bagel with a glass of juice. Imagine my surprise when there was a large sit down area and people attending to my every...

Thank you for staying at The Riverside. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. I do agree with you about the breakfast. I have been eating it for years and I still love the house made pastries and The Riverside bacon. I am also glad that you received great service. That is certainly what we want to hear....

I liked my stay and would go back if needed. if there was something that I didn't like was this review because I should have to write a bunch of words just to fill up this space so that I can move to the next page. Thanks for the stay, though it was great

We're sorry to have experienced the disappointment - we've had such good luck before! I'm sure that the confusion of the remodeling had a bearing in the poor service. We do have an event coming up and we were planning to stay there, but I hope that we have a better experience.

“The Hotel has frequent live music on the patio. Those who do not want that ambient noise may want to stay in a room not near that area.”
