They did give us a great room rate in honor of Veteran's Day. My chief complaint is that we were placed near the front desk where I had to go...

I travel quite a bit to the major hotel chains and needed a break from the plain-vanilla experience. I found this hotel and was very interested in the Hot Springs aspect. It is a very interesting old building that you enter from the back side because it was originally built A century ago to face a busier street on the...

We really loved the Riverside Inn. The room was charming, the hot springs baths were delightful and we also had a couples massage. it really does feel like a bed and breakfast. The room was decorated so much nicer than a standard hotel room. Friendly staff, easy check in and overall outstanding stay. Breakfast is fairly sparse, but the ambience...
