I'm a Lewiston kid and I try to go back at least once a year. For my money the Riverside is the only place to stay in Lewiston. It is everything you need - clean, comfortable, priced right and located as close to Canada as you can get without going swimming. It is not 5 star but instead cozy -... More

My wife and I stayed prior to a Half Marathon in Lewiston. We had a feeling it was going to be a great place to prepare for our race as the reviews we read were all so positive. And we were right. The owner ( Vinny) and his wife will make you feel like family. The rooms are almost like... More

We really liked the Riverside Motel. The owners were very nice, it was very clean, and well-situated in a quiet area of Lewiston. We liked the knotty pine paneling-gave it a homey feel. I think the price was reasonable as well. We would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I needed a night away from home and we were on a budget. We cross into the Niagara Falls, NY. area once or twice a year to get some groceries that are not available in Canada, to go to the Casino and to just get away for a change when we have some time off. We read... More

My boyfriend and I decided to come to the Niagara area on a spontaneous weekend trip. All the hotels in the area from Buffalo to the Falls were either full or too expensive.

If you're looking for a 5-start hotel, this isn't it. But if you're looking for a clean, basic place to stay, then look no farther. We especially liked being able to sit out front in the chairs in the evening, and that you can open the windows in the rooms. The lighting isn't great, and there are no real amenities... More

Our room had 2 beds, a small bathroom, a mini fridge & TV. All have a/c units. The decor is reminiscent of early 1960's, with wood panelling. Really neat! Was very clean as well. New... More

We have stayed here for the past seven years with friends during the Lewiston Jazz Fest weekend and we have never been disappointed.
