The Riverview Hotel is charming and the staff very friendly. It reminded us of the historic old south. The location is perfect, right next to the river and a short walk to the beach. The hotel was under some renovations which will only enhance its overall charm. We had a corner room/suite on the second floor looking out over the...

I just kept saying how charming this place was. If I were to stay here again, I would ask for pool side. We looked out at a wall the whole time on the other side. I think it was the side of the restaurant and people stopped outside our room coming from the restaurant saying their goodbyes and chatting. The...

The Riverview Hotel was a great place. We used the introductory offer on the economy rooms and was very pleased. The staff was beyond helpful and the complimentary breakfast served to your room was a treat. The pool area was great and the drive on beach was just blocks away. Restaurants were close by . Very comfortable beds and large...

Quaint little old hotel by the river that dates back to 1885. Great location. Clean but the room we had was small. Heat and AC not controllable in room. Seating was not comfortable for two people with one straight chair and one barrel chair. No hangers in closet. Not enough towel racks or place to hang wet washcloths in tub/shower....

We used The Riverview Hotel as our base during a four day long boy’s weekend trip. Our trip and the Riverview Hotel exceeded all our expectations. It was historic, but updated with modern amenities including a large screen television. The staff was courteous, accommodating and professional.

The Riverview Hotel is a gem. Tucked away in historic New Smyrna Beach, this small boutique hotel exexemlifies the old south. New owners have upgraded the small but lovely rooms with outstanding bedding and large flat screen TVs. Guests are treated like royalty. The pool is lovely and always uncrowded. This is not a place for the raucous vacationer, but...
