The Riverside Motel is located in walking distance to several downtown restaurants and shops. The Hayward municipal Beach and Park as well as the Lumberjack World Championship arena are approximately 10 minutes More to walk. We occasionally offer discount coupons to a local Fitness Center. Fishing is allowed on our piers (we suggest catch and release). Snacks and coffee are offered each morning in our office. Also, a bicycle trail runs alongside our property for jogging, biking and even dog walking! Among winter activities are snowmobiling (access snow trail 31 from our parking lot), cross country skiing and ice fishing, also snow shoe hiking. In June of 2014, we added a new and beautiful "Upstairs Suite with River Views" of 730+ sq. Feet. This suite sleeps maximum 5 persons! Less
