Went out of his way to accommodate. We ran into some serious car trouble while visiting. Took us to the local store, made numerous calls in assisting us trouble shooting the problem, as well as even allowing us to use his vehicle. Very clean, safe, and affordable establishment, nothing but a positive recommendation.

Not sure when Mike and Meagan took on this new adventure in life, but they're doing a great job! Both very friendly and helpful, I'm certain they'll have fun with this new career.
Stayed here a few years ago, many new improvements, new carpet in room, tile in entry, all tile bath, flat screen tv's, fitted sheets, nice size bath towels, great selection of breakfast muchies.
Also next door is their restaurant, Bootsy's Grille, great food, best pizza in southern Vt. and to top this off, room service, nice when you want dinner in your jammies!
Come find out for yourself, you'll be very pleased with both.
Thanks Mike and Meagan good luck! See you next year.

Room Tip: Room 102 queen bed, some have a king

The Riverbend Lodge is one of the nicest Hotels in which I have had the pleasure of staying with the friendliest staff and courteous service they really make you feel like youre part of their big family! Mike was an absolute pleasure to deal with during my stay , he really goes above and beyond the call when it comes to satisfaction and comfort . Meg was an absolute angel , friendly and talkative and really tuned into the area and its many must sees. The icing on the cake really was the EXCELLENT resturaunt which is also owned by the same people only about 100 feet away ! The food was amazing and the rest was just wonderful. I will reccomend these folks to all of my friends and family looking for an amazing value without losing any of the amazing services those other hotels offer you! When I was here they made me feel like family while i was away from my own family for a time ... at that moment it was exactly what I needed and I am sure if you stay there you will leave on a first name basis with these wonderful folks as well . Tell em BIG sent ya!

This was the absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was filthy and smelled like smoke, there were lights that didn't work, there was no toilet paper, no one came to make the beds or tidy up the room during our stay, and all we could hear was children yelling and screaming. I felt like a $10.00 hooker in a pay-by-the-hour hotel. I would definitely never stay here again. It isn't worth the few dollars you save.

Room Tip: CHose one at a different hotel

Came here with my girlfriend for the weekend. Rooms look alot better from our last stay. The room was clean,nice flat screen tv,and new shower. The pizza at the resturant next door is a plus.

Room Tip: Any of them because they're all updated.
