We have been coming here for 5 years and it has gone from charming to seedy to run down. For $108 a night (+ taxes etc) you get a basic room with beat up used furniture, a bed with a hard mattress, missing doorknobs, a Visegrips on the bathtub faucet, a cracked sink and an ancient AC unit. The internet...

Really historic with antiques everywhere. Outside is plain. Restaurant was closed for some renovation and we had chosen the hotel on part because the restaurant was highly recommended. We wished we had known in advance that it was closed. Lobby was filled with mattresses. Not much ambiance there. Breakfast was cold items and not that interesting. All in all not...

We stayed at the Riverview over the weekend while visiting nearby Cumberland Island National Seashore (The hotel is across the street from the ferry) The hotel was a delight. Old and creaky. Faithfully restored 100-year old hotel, including 100-year old mattress. A little skimpy on the towels as well but these are minor issues compared to the enjoyment of a...

The owners of this hotel clearly don't care. We were barely acknowledged when we arrived. No customer service. The beds are old and sagging. The most expensive room, the suite is directly over the bar, so you hear all bar noise. So, terrible service, awful beds, and noise.. Bad

Stayed here on our way to Tampa. Good stopping off place for Cumberland Island. Old and dated but worth the price. Rooms are small but close to things. Ferry to Cumberland is out the door. Lots of character and potential. Nice bar/ restaurant, Sleagles, next door. Friendly staff.

My husband and I traveled to St Marys for a long weekend in January and had the privilege of staying at the Riverview hotel. We stayed in the Martha room which gave us a perfect view of the river across the street. Even though the rooms are decorated with period furnishings the bed was very comfortable. We requested additional towels...

Stayed here the night before a camping trip to Cumberland Island, and really enjoyed it. The hotel is right across the street from the ferry dock and the marina, and walking distance from the few shops and restaurants in town. We rolled in around dinner time, and had dinner in the saloon. There was a talented gentleman singing and playing...

My partner and I enjoy the ambiance of old architecture (this was built 1916) and vintage furniture - in this case, a Mission style fumed oak armoire, side table and a dainty lady's desk Yes, the furniture is old and worn but it spoke to us. The view from our window of the harbor included a glorious sunrise peeking through...

If you want to stay in an historic hotel you will like this one. Great location to many outdoor activities and decent restaurants. However the room was a bit dirty and extremely noisy. The hotel staff wasn't really helpful or knowledgeable about the area.

This hotel has seen its better days. The location is great and the hotel could be charming, but it is in dire need of repairs and cleaning. A thorough cleaning, patching cracks and holes, losing the tape fixes and a good air freshner would help this tired hotel immensely. It is a shame it has not been cared for because...
