Requested a room in the back so we did not have to listen to the street noise from the traffic on the main road in the front of the building. Double room was okay, but nothing spectacular (found a long hair in the sink and live bug crawling in the tub). Prices were raised since there was obviously some youth...

This was our 6th time staying here. Love location and price good too. Room always ready when we get there. Clean. We stay riverside. Like to have easy access to vehicle. We love to feed the ducks. Breakfast not bad(eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, cereal, juice). Staff friendly. Pillows fluffy and beds feel good.

The staff was wonderful - you could tell they were proud of their property and that was very refreshing to see. The room was well appointed and clean. The indoor heated pool and Jacuzzi was a refreshing break. The breakfast was ample and fresh and the service attendants were very pleasant. I will stay here again

This was our first stay at Econo Lodge Riverside, but definitely not our last! We were greeted by friendly staff upon our arrival.

Nice hotel...nice indoor pool...decent breakfast...poor internet service. It sits on the river with a beautiful fire pit and picnic shelter. It's close to shopping and restaurants with plenty of parking if you don't mind the ducks and geese. All in all a good place to stay.

Nice clean motel. Typical or better than typical Econo Lodge. The reviews made me think it might be better. The duck feeding is a memory from the trip we won't forget. The breakfast was free and pretty good. Real eggs for a change. View of the river means you will walk to the pool which is in a weird location....
