Verified Reviews of Best Western Riverside Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Phone rep stated one price charged a larger price at checkin."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Called about late checking and phone rep created a reservation quote of $99. Total At check in it turned out to be $145. The place smelled of cigarettes and the carpets and cloth chair in the room were stained walls looked water damaged The A/C kept rattling all night as well. Not worth $145 for sure.

This hotel was not clean at all! The room smelled of stale smoke and I sneezed all night long from said smoke and assorted pet dander that was not vacuumed up from previous dogs. Very very dissatisfied. We got to the hotel at 8pm and left at 3am because I was so uncomfortable with the room.

"Needs Updated"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The room was clean enough, but we felt very insecure at this hotel right from our arrival. The hotel has a lounge connected to it, with the entrance being right beside the hotel entrance. Upon exiting our vehicle to check in, two groups of cars unloaded with several people. This was midnight when we checked in and the group was going to the lounge. They were smoking Marijuana right outside the front entrance, which when you opened the hotel doors, the smell lingered horribly in the lobby. It was very disturbing to law abiding citizens. No one could explain it away. Will not stay here again.
