Where to start. Regardless of what they say they are far from high quality. The bedding feels cheap and the beds are hard. They use portable A/C and heater units that take up any little bit of space left in the small room. You can hear everything. The first night we stayed we went down to visit their bar and was rudely dismissed. This was okay because it was a dead zone anyways and clearly not welcoming. We felt like an inconvenience to the staff. To top it all off they (after having a detailed discussion about our stay) gave our second night stay to someone else. We got a call that our stuff was in the office and the hostess played completely dumb to our conversation. Not only this but she then proceeded to tell us they were booked and had no other rooms. After leaving I called not as myself and magically they had vacancy. I will never recommend this place.

Dear Dakota, We are sorry to hear that you experience was unpleasant and not to your expectations and that apparently there was miscommunication in the reservation of your second night. The staff was trying to address the matter, but unfortunately according to bystanders and the staff, the situation escalated with foul language on your part. This was distractive and offensive to other guests. Yes, we did have a room become available later in the day which we were unaware was going to be. Regardless, we are sorry that you were unhappy and do apologize. The vast majority of our guests are pleased with the service and facilities. We are glad that you enjoyed the remainder of your stay.

We arrived several hours early, and were very grateful that they let us check in. The people were super friendly and helpful. I expected the Hotel to be old and creaky, and I wasnt disappointed. It is a neat old place. The part that really disappointed me was how disgusting the Hot Springs were. Ceiling tiles falling down and wall panels popping out. I would stay again just because the people were so nice.
Thank Phil S

Hello Phil, We are glad we were able to accommodate your early check in and that the staff was very helpful for you. In regards to our Hot Springs, they are in our immediate future plan to remodel. We look forward to seeing you again and thank you.

This place is a real gem!!! We happened upon the Riverside Inn on the way to pick up a puppy. We already had a dog with us and were thrilled to find the hotel was not just dog friendly, but SUPER dog friendly!
And all three of us were made to feel so welcome.
The food they served was so good that we didn’t eat anywhere else during our 3 day stay there. Homemade quiche pastries & espresso drinks (amoung other things) for breakfast, plus a creative & delicious dinner menu with a nice selection of wines.
Our room, #301 was at the corner of the building classically furnished with 2 comfy queen beds.
The private mineral baths are all on the bottom floor (with the exception of one, hot tub style outside on a deck) And we enjoyed the relaxing soak.
As manager of a bed & breakfast in Colorado I found everything about this place a real pleasure and am hoping to return sometime in the future.
Thanks to all the staff for making us feel so welcome!
Thank Jane S

Room quiet & staff was very helpful. Appreciated the over 16 year old requirement because we are seniors and like a calm environment. Room quaint except for loud air conditioner. The restaurant downstairs was excellent!
