“Must read: Don't stay here unless you want to be screwed out of $180”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

Long story short 2 days ago
I Came in around 1 left around 9
Just slept didn't even use the bathroom room was nice but service was so bad they overcharged my card by $180 they said the room smelled like marijauna. I don't smoke so I was pretty upset for the false charge they also refused to give me their owners phone number or someone to talk to that could help me. I was then forced to call the police because he was calling me some pretty bad stuff. I even recorded the conversation. I am still fighting to get this charged removed hopefully this will be resolved after the holiday.

dkopunec, Manager at A Riverside Inn Hotel, responded to this review, 27 May 2014
The Riverside Inn Hotel is a 100% non-smoking facility. This is clearly stated on the website, at check-in and throughout the rooms. The policy insures that guests have a clean, and clear room. In addition it is extremely rude to smoke in public areas, hotel rooms, rental cars, etc. This is the reason these places will charge a steep penalty, and forbid it.
We have all been in a room where there's smoke, and it's not pleasant. If you want to smoke, or do drugs, do it at home. Finally, you failed to realize, that your room was surrounded by a lot of young children. being young girl scouts, and there were two couples with newborn infants across from your room. Thank you for making their stay uncomfortable.

The place is decent enough. I ended up having to stay the night on Mothers Day due to the road being closed. Nice furniture and ok as far as clean. The biggest downfall has to be the service and next the amenities. Do not expect them to check n with you to see if everything in the room was ok. The bathroom was just dirty enough I opted to not showere the next day. The hotel seems to be able to have HBO OR ESPN but not both. I had to ask for a guide to the channels at the front desk, the clerk didn't seem to know which channels went with the network channels. When I tried the channel that was listed as HBO I got ESPN. I went back down to the front desk around 7:45pm and asked the clerk, he acted somewhat clueless but then stated that "some people 'might' be watching the baseball game" Not the local team and at the beginning of the season and no one I talked to was in fact watching it. I wanted to point out that it was Mothers day not Fathers day and he had an actual customer requesting the other channel but decided to try to compromise. So I asked if he could turn it to HBO at 9pm he agreed to that. However it was not changed until well after 9, I missed over half of the show I wanted to watch. The continental breakfast was lame at best.. The best part of the stay was my fellow travelers..Oh there was no pool or hot tub, it looked to be turned into a dance floor maybe, the room was locked. The fitness center wasn't even noticeable tucked back into a corner off the "pool room"

Room Tip: I had a second floor room so it was relatively quiet.

Sometimes I have to drive through South Park for work and spend night there. I think this is the best hotel there. High speed internet, flat-screen TV, breakfast included, rooms always perfectly clean, beds very comfortable. This is the newest and the most modern equipped hotel in this area.

Good price, very good service. Rooms are clean and spacious, equipped with refrigerators, coffee, internet. Staff kind and helpful. Continental breakfast comparable with other more expensive hotels. Highly recommended. Me and my family definitely will stay again next time.

Room Tip: I can recommend a room with a view on the mountains. The road is relatively quiet and the traffic is...

Our family stayed at the Riverside Inn Hotel for two nights, during a small snow storm in February. The car that we have had difficulty starting in the morning at the employees helped us charge the battery, and drove me to the auto parts store to buy a new one. It really shows that the staff cares about their guests if they go out of their way to help.

Room Tip: Request the second floor as it is quieter.

This hotel was adequate- the Asian fusion restaurant next door was awesome and reasonable- doesn't look so good from the road but pleasantly surprised by great Chinese food. The hotel was ok- pros- clean room , free wifi , 80$ rate, recently renovated. Cons- woman who checked us in not to thrilled to do so- some nails in parking lot- reported to her but I ended up cleaning them up myself in fear of rental car flat! Pool and hot tub closed - very isolated area but nivpce drive to Pikes Peak
Decent place not exceptionall- left at 6:30 no coffee or complimentary breakfast ready at that time- could be great with a little work on their customer service and extras like coffee or snacks on arrival etc..

Room Tip: If here eat at Asian fusion

Riverside Inn has a great small town vibe. We're used to staying at much larger hotels located in cities, or downtown. It was a refreshing change to get a decent nights sleep in a peaceful town. This was a relatively newer hotel, and the service was nice.
The only downside was that the local restaurants that serve food, close quite early. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: rooms on the second floor are quieter
