Yes, I booked thru Booking.com and intentionally stayed there - - mistake - - but everything else had been booked for/from the rodeo the preceding week. I must have gotten one of the more recently renovated rooms (up front) but that still didn't condone the filthy carpet (I wore socks the entire time, then threw them away) nor the small,...

Pros.. The roaches seemed to be timid and stayed under the refrigerator and behind the couch with cum stains. Cons.. the pet fur all over the room appeared to be of the cat species. This was great for my allergies. Over all, if my buddies suv isn't sitting on blocks tommow morning with the wheels missing everything will be good....

This was booked through Hotel.com and did not look bad on line as all hotels were booked, I was very upset when I got in the room, and the smell was overwhelming, the floor and comforter was filthy, I did not stay here although the room was paid for. Im sure done with booking with Hotels.com.

We scheduled the room because it looked okay online and it is near where we planned to meet family members. The Rivers Inn meets our most basic needs, but I cannot recommend it to others. Stained carpet, curtains coming loose from their hooks, and water drip lines on the ceiling suggest its age and condition. The manager attempted to be...

The bathroom is small, outdated and cramped; towels not soft and too small. Room had an odor -- needs airing out. If you want a cheap place to stay this it, but set the bar too high. Management was friendly. The owners could make it look nice with a little outside paint and redoing the bathrooms, plus airing out the...

3 of us stayed here due to soccer tournament booking all area rooms solid. The mold and mildew was so strong I had to leave door open. Not able to sleep. No other rooms available. Trapped. Sheets were dirty with brown crud. Hotel changed them. Everyone felt itchy after staying here. The floor was soft...water damage. By far the WORST...

Nothing to write home about, view wise. Older motel, crowded parking and pool is unused. The shining gem to this motel is the manager. Like a drill sarge, he made sure people used the proper parking, watched constantly so no shenanigans went on and made sure the rooms were clean, had plenty of towels and if you had a problem,...

The hotel is now called The Rivers. it is currently under renovation. There are several rooms totally renovated, some in various stages of renovation and some still not touched. I checked in for 12 days for work and was given a single in the non-renovated section. it was so small me my dog barely fit and it was stinky (i...

Holy crap. That pretty much sums up this wonderful experience. I would rather live in a van down by the river. It is cheap, but at least they can clean the rooms. I guess it is hard to clean the floors when they are wet and moldy. The beds were not clean and there was one dirty, frayed through towel...

The manager does not understand English, refuses to allow guest ice. He is rude, as well as was seen harassing guest. My room was not clean and he refused to allow cleaning supplies. He don't like the smell. He yells at the children who were there and doesn't allow them on the playground equipment. I asked why and he showed...
