Saulk River behind the Inn with a small community play ground and picnic tables under the trees with a river view. Excellent staff, super nice and everyone wants to help. Cute dinning area, free basic breakfast. But they...

We've stayed at this hotel for one day every August for the past 6 years for an event in Richmond, mostly because there aren't any other options in Cold Spring or Richmond. It is clean and reasonably priced. Pros: *Pretty close to St Cloud and convenient to Cold Spring sites (like the Cold Spring Bakery) and Richmond *Free Wi-Fi *Each...

The staff were rude and unhelpful, the rooms were shocking and to be honest it was one of the worst places I have stayed in. The rooms were dark, no wardrobe, no tea/coffee making facilities and the bed was uncomfortable. Breakfast was just about adequate. The only good thing was the pool, jacuzzi and sauna.

My husband and two children stayed here because of a racquetball tournament. The only room we were able to reserve that met out needs was a smoking room. #1 I can't believe they still allow this and #2 I forgot how horrid the smell is and how badly it permeates clothing. I'm thinking they were short staffed the morning we...

My husband and I enjoyed a two-night stay at this beautiful hotel. It features "Themed Rooms", each room decorated differently making it a bit more fun! Our room was very clean! Our room included TV, Microwave, Refrigerator, Shampoo/Conditioner, Soap, and Hair dryer. There was no iron / ironing board or coffee maker in the room if that is a concern...

We stayed at the Riverside Inn for the July 4th weekend. We had the King room on the river side and loved it! Excellent parking - awesome sunrise - enjoyed the river view. The room was quiet - we would have never known it was a sold out weekend!!

The hotel was very clean and members of the staff were very accommodating including the use of one of the meeting rooms for family to gather. The staff was able to move some of the family so that we would all be on the same wing.

We were initially booked to stay in the Farm Room then realized the construction of the new wing was complete. We were offered an opportunity to say in one of the rooms facing the river. The room view was absolutely beautiful.

Our room was not clean, there was paint and caulk peeling from around the air conditioner onto the carpet. The room was not vacuumed, and the bathroom was not clean. This hotel and our room was way over priced.
