Verified Reviews of Riverside Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great location and great pool. Staff very helpful."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Room was clean and big, but seemed old. However having the bed in view of the door you got the light from the hall. Almost no place to put anything in the bathroom. Shower/tub was large and lots of room; TV was good with many channels. Coffee machine made weak coffee. would not use it again. There are better ones out there that could be used in the room. Pool was great! Luggage staff were very helpful. Couldn't ask for a better location to shop and see restaurants and the river.

"The Location was Great!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The Riverside Hotel is ideally located, right in the heart of everything. However, the hotel had few amenities to offer families and wasn't group friendly. My family members who stayed on the classic side of the hotel complained that the rooms were moldy, A/C wasn't working properly and the rooms need to be upgraded very badly.

"Bob responded very promptly and the booking process went very well. They answered all our questions and offered the rooms we needed at the price they quoted. It was a very efficient way of finding a hotel for our group. You have been excellent to deal with. I have already referred your company to another teacher in our school.
