Stayed one night in this cute stagecoach. When I called to book I was looking for a unique stay. The person I spoke to was very upfront on how small this property was however I am in love with tiny houses and had already prepared myself for the space. I appreciated the honesty from the person telling me about the true size of the place no surprises when arriving. Its cute, clean, and perfect for a couple nights of tiny living. The shower was larger than expected and the bed was VERY comfortable. Would stay here again!!! Loved everything about the idea.

My husband and I had to wait a while to book this motel since they were sold out on the weekends we had wanted to go to Eminence. The motel had since sold out on the weekend we were able to stay.

We picked this location since we brought our dog along on this trip. There was a $10 upcharge, but that was not unreasonable for this service.

The motel isn't fancy, but it is clean and the bed is comfortable. The bathroom area is small, but since most people don't spend very much time in their rooms, this was not an issue.

As another reviewer stated, the WIFI isn't the greatest. This is another reason to enjoy the outdoors when you are in this area.

It was very conveniently located, but quiet in the evening. We got a good night's sleep.

We booked at the last minute when our tent was too cold in early April. Clean room, comfy beds and exactly the price we needed. Service was great and they checked to make sure everything was working and we had what we needed. Will definitely recommend!

Motel is nice they take good care of their rooms. Horse campground is always well kept as well. Only problem is they have issues with their reservation system for the horse campground and stalls. Woman is kinda spacey and you can tell the owners are not horse people and have never camped with horses. make sure you understand what barn your horses will be in and where it is in location to your site. Also if traveling with other campers make sure they know to keep you together as they move reservations around alot. Check in often to ensure your spot and horses stalls. Also there are NO showers or toilets or outhouse in the campground no matter what the lady tells you there is NOT!!! Nearst showers are at Alley Spring campground. Or I guess you could use their indoor pool at the motel. There is a rooster at the campground in a pen as well, you will want to put him in a pot for supper by the time your stay is up. He starts about 5 in the morning and goes all day. Sleep quality is poor because of him.

My husband and I have gone on float trips in this region for forty years. We have stayed in this place many times, renting all the rooms for our entire company, for our company float trips. (We LOVE Jack's Fork!) We decided a few weeks ago to go on a float by ourselves, there are so many rivers there in the Ozark Scenic Riverways to choose from. We had not been on the Jack for a while, it is one of our favorites because of the scenic beauty and the wildlife- (we saw otters playing while on the river this trip, we saw enormous trout.) So we booked a room in the Riverside for the umpteenth time.I give them full points because: (a) they do have a very nice indoor pool, with a hand- built stone enclosure: it has a lot of rustic charm, and is very pleasant at the end of a long day. (b) The motel rooms, though not large and with modest bathrooms, are SO clean. The rustic wooden furniture has a lot of charm; they have nice cable TV; and the people will bend over backwards for you. City people will find old fashioned country hospitality a new experience. The beds in our room were quite comfy, the linens new and immaculate. We bring our own coffeepot but you can get hot coffee in the office, I believe.( I have to have mine right away or I am not human.) (c) The Jack is walking distance. It is just right there, the bridge over it is less than a block away. (d) All the local floats are very close- no long rides in the bus on the return to the motel, and a lot of local canoe renters will actually pick you up and drop you off where you are staying.That is a HUGE plus.You are TIRED at the end of a day on the water! (d) Town is walking distance to several local eateries. They have a lot of new restaurants now. They have a very old fashioned Dairy Freeze place! I love this little motel: been here a zillion times. They also have cabins now- we went and looked at them. They look awesome! They even have a gypsy wagon, fitted out for a camping trip! They have a house to rent too, for larger groups.

This resort is family friendly and the management is awesome. My family and friends felt welcome there and had lots of fun. Pets are welcome. The water is fine, and you've never seen so many stars. I want to bring my family back every single year.

I've stayed at the Riverside dozens of times. They have riverside cabins, private cabins, and motel rooms. It's a very affordable option. The rooms are always clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend the Riverside Motel while in Eminence

Very courteous staff and nice country decorated rooms. You are walking distance to the river and to local restaurants. There are supply shops nearby to get ready for your float or canoe trip. This motel is a nice example of locally owned country charm!

For the money, you really can't beat this place in this tiny town. It was pretty sleepy in November, but appears to be a home base for river activities in the summer. Refrigerator, microwave and wifi in an remarkably spacious room. Friendly staff that clearly are family. But don't expect shampoo or a hair dryer.
