Clean and Quiet. The Riverside Motel was a nice surprise during our overnight trip to Hayward. The owner checked us in and was extremely pleasant and helpful. He was able to recommend places for dinner. What struck both my wife and me was how clean our room was. Many times small motels such as this are less than stellar with regard to how the rooms are maintained. That was not the case with this establishment. The rooms were Spotless. We will absolutely stay at the Riverside Motel again when we visit Hayward.

Clean clean clean I love the walk in shower. Only bad thing NO fault of the owners I couldn't find a place selling snowmobile trail passes had to leave a day early which really sucked because a couple of local businesses decided to send me on a goose chase on locating trail passes I ended up cutting my losses and heading home early and its a shame I really love the owners of this motel . So if you go snowmobiling get passes by mail head of time.

I will say that I didn't have high expectations going in, so I was a bit surprised. Motel was very clean and in decent shape. Good "sports car" parking directly outside of your room. It is conveniently located in town, and directly on the river. The shower had great pressure and plenty of hot water. My one complaint of the room was the mattress on our bed was bad - we had a difficult time sleeping through the night. Overall, it offers a decent value for Hayward.. especially compared to some of the other hotels. I have no problem paying close to $300/night for a nice hotel, but I'm not spending that to stay at the Holiday Inn.lol.

We always try to stay at non-chain family-owned motels when we travel. The Riverside once again proved we make the right choices in doing so!. While our room didn't have a tub, it did have a large shower with endless hot water and great water pressure. There was a quiet mini fridge big enough to hold drinks and snacks. The tv was very tiny, but we were never in our room long enough to watch much of it anyway. WiFi was available and while a bit slow at times, it was certainly fast enough to look things up online and for checking emails. The room was spotless and the mattress was obviously newer as it was firm and very comfortable. The outside grounds were also spotless While we didn't have our room changed (due to Covid) during our three-day stay, the friendly staff checked in with us daily and asked if we needed fresh linens or anything else. Everyone was so nice! Our room was facing the road and we heard next to no road noise with the windows closed. We also couldn't hear much noise from the other guests next to us. The motel does offer river views, if possible, I'd suggest staying in one of those. They have great views and little decks you can sit on. If those are booked, there's still a lovely guest sitting area by the river! On our next visit to see family, we'll be sure to stay at The Riverside again. We really enjoyed our stay.

We were very pleased with our room. It was clean and the price was right. The bathrooms were big and the showers were very nice. It is walking distance to downtown and right across the street is a restaurant with a great breakfast. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Hayward.
