3/5 Okay

It was okay. An older building that needed some repairs. Check in and out required ringing a bell and waiting for someone to come to the window.

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Room was disgusting. Sheets were paper thin with holes in them, hairs all over the sink, bathroom inside the sheets. You could tell someone had just finished using the bathroom because the toilet paper roll was jaggedly ripped and mostly gone. We left…abandoned the room and booked another room somewhere else. So disappointed.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Shabby outside, fresh inside
The room was fine, the outdoor upkeep up the hotel was degraded. Need new paint, paving, re-landscaping. Looks like a novel outside, but it’s deceiving my run down looking. The room was absolutely refurbished, clean and modern.

Manager was rude and wanted to make a scene at five in the morning when no noise was made on our end. The no visitors rule is awful

Nice, affordable, convenient.
The place is super convenient to downtown Riverside, well maintained and very affordable. I really enjoyed the hotel's architecture. Having a door onto a balcony, though tiny, was nice in that I could open up the door to let enjoy the evening breeze. WiFi was excellent (there are plenty of hot spots throughout the property).
