Good 6.0
My room was uncomfortable and completely outdated. Not what was pictured. Staff was friendly so that's a win i guess.

Don't Expect The Best
Being rushed out before 11am and not able to double check for things left behind. Was locked out/key wasn't working. Misled to believe Jacuzzi was in my room.😭😞😔😒

Just What We Needed
Nice remodeling job! The room was comfortable; just what we needed for the night. Don’t expect breakfast, but there are plenty of restaurants close by. Much of the surrounding area isn’t as well-kept, but I was not worried for my safety at all. I would recommend a stay, and if my travels take me back to Riverside, I’d book a room again. Thank you.
