The Riverwood Inn is a good choice for rustic, yet affordable lodging in the Big Lake, Becker, Albertville area. The rooms are comfortable, plain and clean. They provide a continental breakfast with coffee in the main lobby each morning. Front desk staff is friendly, nice, efficient and helpful. The hotel sits on a bluff over the Mississippi river – we... More

My guy and I wanted a mini-stay-cation and he came across a deal for the Riverwood Inn up by the Albertville Outlet Mall. We stayed on a Friday night and were pleasantly surprised. This place has great potential. It is an older hotel/Inn with a nice rustic feel to it almost upscale hunting lodge-ish. When we were there it was... More

We stayed here on a week night in October so the hotel was mostly empty, but I have to say I was surprised at the beauty of the property. It apparently is a very popular destination for weddings. The lodge is very nice-rustic but not overdone. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We were there for a package... More

After reading the reviews I wondered what my experience would be like. I was pleasantly surprised by the service and quality of the Inn. Working at an old hotel myself, I can pretty much ignore the "prissy" negative comments of guests. I would stay again. The bed was clean and comfortable. The whole property is beautiful, but needs a little... More

After reviewing their website, I paid for a night's stay online. The website showed pictures were several years outdated. No updating has been done in several years and repairs seem to wait ... Towels that were stained brown, the mattress that was likely 15 years old (springs noisy and padding shot), and very must odor are just some of the... More

I'll have to say I was concerned with the bad reviews but that ended when we got there. I will say if you want a cookie cutter type of hotel or one that was just decorated last week keep going. Now, if you want a reasonable room that has a very comfortable homey feel to it look no further. Yes... More

The grounds are very beautiful, but the room was a mixture of very nice furniture with wallpaper falling off the wall and old, discolored and outdated fixtures and electronics. The other guests were a problem. A lot of loud talkers late at night in the hallways and at 5 am someone banging repeatedly on a door down the hallway for... More

The Riverwood Inn was built in 1979 and I think they stopped taking care of the property shortly thereafter. If you look at their website, the pictures are 10 or more years old. The grounds are in rough shape--lawn and flower beds need attention by a pro. The tennis courts are missing-or should I say the fencing and nets... the... More

Our first thought when pulling onto the property was, "at one time this place was probably beautiful". However, it's now rundown and outdated, and could pretty much use a total overhaul. The restaurant was STILL closed as reported by reviews posted several months ago, with no signs of work being done. The continental breakfast was VERY basic with packaged oatmeal,... More
