We needed a place to stay outside of Great Sand Dunes. All the campgrounds were full, but luckily we found this gem. It was very clean, Irene was great, and the rooms were pleasant. The trip to Great Sand Dunes was easy from there.

The Riverside Inn is a very comfortable spot to stay, we enjoyed it. Will definitely stay there again in the future, when we attend the Early Iron Festival at Cole Park. The staff is friendly, and the place is clean.

The hotel had closed for the winter break but the staff had promised us a room and yes, they opened their hotel for their only guests. Amazing! They even left a snack and juice for us to enjoy in the morning. Yes this Inn is old and a little worn but it is clean and a real value. We stayed...

When visiting in Alamosa, we had planned to stay here. It looks like a unique place to stay. There were no cars there, place was shut down. We were so disappointed. If we were to travel again to Alamosa and they were open, we would still consider them for a stay.

We are only open after 3pm, so sorry you missed us but you can call the motel and we answer.

We stayed at the Riverside Inn while we were visiting Great Sand Dunes National Park. What a quaint little motel, and cheap. The person that checked us in was very friendly and offered lots of suggestions for local restaurants. The queen bed was comfortable, and the in room free bottles of water and granola bars were a nice snack to...

This 1950s-era motel is charming and close to downtown. It's a short walk from the Rio Grande on US 160/US 285/CO 17. Be prepared for compact rooms yet all is adequate, clean and comfortable. Due to proximity to major highway it can be noisy. On Monday morning the traffic started around 4:45; on Tuesday we slept longer, perhaps owing to...

I was driving from Phoenix to Denver to transport an art show I had put up in January. What a refreshing adventure without the snow, so I meandered my way up, away from the BIG interstates, to head up vial I-285 to Denver area. TripAdvisor in hand, I had looked over a few options, as I travel with a cat...

A definite throwback in time. We were there for one night. The motel was very clean. The Barnwood walls, and whole atmosphere were very 1950's. We absolutely loved our stay. We felt like we were at a retreat. It was fun. We had the 2 bedroom, room #2. Not "high end", just old fashioned comfort. We will be back. The...

We found this classic style hotel after visiting the local sand dunes & water fall. We liked the knotty pine walls in the room & all the features work. Fridge, microwave, shower, heat/AC, cable TV & WiFi all work fine & the staff was nice.

This is a very nice motel for the price. Nothing fancy here but well worth the price. The lady checking me in was also the owner. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Very quiet though there were not many guests either.

“Ask for a room away from the highway, tho that may not be much quieter. It's a small operation.”
