My wife and I spent a weekend here in July. The manger was very helpful! Online booking said the hotel was booked but when I called the manager he set us up with a king bedroom overlooking the river. We really enjoyed our stay! The room was well decorated and the bed was nice and comfy! We will stay here...

Rented a cabin on the river and it was wonderful. Very clean, super nice staff and extremely helpful with recommendations of places to see and things to do. The cabin was in walking distance of everything and it's a great view to watch everyone tubing down the river. We can't wait to go back.

Lovely room overlooking the river. Quiet and secluded yet convenient 2 block stroll to all major shops and eateries. Beautifully furnished rooms, comfortable beds. Host Mark was very caring and professional. He is an excellent asset to his city.

The only bad thing about the room was the wifi didn't work that well but Room was clean. Beds were comfortable. Location was perfect. Only 2 blocks to town so you don't have to pay to park anywhere. My favorite part was the location. It's right on the river. There are swings out by the river to sit and relax...

We arrived on a Monday and stayed two nights at Riverbend Motel. Monday night I had homework due by midnight. Mark thankfully allowed me to use his computer to submit the assignment. The rooms were 127 and 27. They connected together which was perfect for our family of 5. If you are looking for friendly service, quiet, perfect view of...

We had a river front 2 story cabin that was great, first time there and the manager was a great help. He actually gave as a list of restaurants and places to go that we followed. From our cabin we could see people floating in the lazy tubes and had lots of fun. Very short walk to downtown Really enjoyed...

I was disappointed in the room. The room had been freshly painted and engineered wood flooring put down along with crown molding but it needed lots more to update it. The sink, tub, curtains and furniture were old. Room was clean, bed comfortable. Nice plus having refrig in room. Outside carpet on decking old and needed replacing. Location was fantastic...
