The motel is clean and beautiful and within walking distance to the main street. We loved the grounds and had at least 4 picnics by the river and at the firepit. Rooms were clean and lovely! The owners were very nice and helpful and we enjoyed chatting with them. My husband and I were only supposed to stay for two...

We stayed in September of 2014. We had a one night reservation (if we had more time,we would have stayed longer). This place is positively a treasure. The landscape of beautiful flowers everywhere was very picturesque. The baskets of flowers on the railings were gorgeous ! There were many flowers lining the river edge too. They were around the hot...

Warm welcome and home made cookies. The room was small but really nice, perfect for overnight stay. Ceranic mugs and proper glasses were a welcome change. Looks like a lot of work has been done to make the place really appealing and comfortable. As we arrived in October breakfast was only continentalwith the usual fare, the cookies were very nice....

Stayed in September 2014 for one night. The owners clearly take pride in their property and making sure their guests are happy. Dave and/or Chad were always available to tend to their guests. Their effort to make the property welcoming shows - beautiful flowers everywhere, comfortable sitting areas (patios, benches, chairs, etc.), speakers for music, and fresh baked cookies in...

The owners have turned a conventional old motel into a gem! It's ideally located by the river -- which we loved hearing from our room (#22). It is close to the center of town. The flowers and gardens in general were beautiful. It has 2 hot tubs in a "private" area by the river's edge. The room was a very...

This independent motel does everything right. From the glass glasses, to ceramic mugs in the room, beautiful landscaping, location right downtown but on the river and protected from street noise to a nice hot breakfast. My husband and I booked a family suite for the second year in a row. While this is not the Ritz Carlton, it has everything...

Rivers Edge Lodge Motel is outstanding in every way. Walking distance to shops & restaurants, free breakfast, hot tubs open 24 hours, well-behaved dogs welcome, dog park behind lodge, benches that face the river, nice staff. The owners do an outstanding job of gardening and it really makes all the difference in the world. It is heaven on earth.

We enjoyed the beautiful setting, next to the river, flowers and grass with many places to sit and enjoy the scenery. The owner was friendly, helpful and we enjoyed the breakfast. We stayed in the King room and it was small but perfect for us. Room was clean and again the location is wonderful!
