We stayed at the Riverview lodge for a high school hockey tournament. So many great things to say about this lodge. From the minute we entered the lodge to the time we left it was a great experience. We had 11 of the 12 rooms booked. The team had 8 rooms in the newer section and they were huge and... More

I stayed at the Riverview Lodge last week while on business; all of the other hotels I normally stay at were full due to conferences in town. Although the room was clean, it is definitely in need of updating, especially the bathroom. Lighting is very poor in the room; not enough bright lights throughout the room. Furniture is older; the...

A trip home would not be complete unless ya hit the lodge. After twenty five years it still is beyond impressive and I hope it continues to be. So awesome and the dimly lit wood atmosphere is simply amazing. Have never been disappointed.

Based on earlier reviews we stopped here for lunch. We had hoped to have walleye/pickerel - turns out it's only available in the evening. We decided to have the soup and sandwich special with a Lake of the Woods beer. The soup (split pea with ham) was excellent and the sandwich (shaved roast beef on a bun with coleslaw was... More

Stopped here for one night on a trip to Toronto. Room was very spacious! Such a cute hotel. Breakfast was good enough for what we needed but did have the option of ordering more for a fee. No complaints at all about this place. Would recommend to everyone.

This hotel is situated on the banks of the river and is a short drive off the Trans Canada Highway. Front desk personnel were friendly and efficient. Room was clean and spacious. Having a decent restaurant on site made it a great place to stay while traveling. No complaints whatsoever about this hotel.

I recently stayed here on my way through to the east. Large clean rooms , comfortable beds and a view to match. A restaurant is onsite , staff are friendly and the price was right. This was an excellent choice for the night and should I be in Dryden again, I will definitely come back

The room we got was very spacious which was awesome and the shower had great pressure. The beds were however a little dated I slept alright but it wasn't as comfortable as other places I've stated. The rustic feel of the inn makes you feel very calm. Also the restaurant on site is absolutely amazing I recommend going to the... More
