We were seriously impressed with how much effort this place puts into their hotel. We stayed here just overnight on a road trip and were swayed by other good reviews. Everything was immaculately clean, upscale. Front desk and cleaning staff was professional and happy to be of service. The pillows were to die for and I took pics of them... More

We stayed just 1 night at this BW (Riverside Inn, GA.) location. It was the halfway point on our way home from a 4-night getaway which also was a BW hotel.
