“Wonderful Getaway”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

I took my granddaughters who just graduated for a few days trip to Riverwalk Place. We had a day of beauty which all the services were wonderful. The surprise look on the faces of the girls was priceless when we walked into out suite. It was fabulous. The food was ok but not outstanding. We were wishing that they would have had some type of breakfast. Just coffee, juice along with bagels or sweet rolls. Would be sufficient. But all in all, I would highly recommend going for a few days. Next time we would be prepared and bring some food to cook.

Room Tip: Go with a suite.

Back again after such a wonderful time last year. This time I brought a different group of friends. We originally were scheduling our massages for all the same time but had to split up due to an employee being sick. Stacy was very nice and treated us to an appetizer in the restaurant to thank us for being understanding.

We all enjoyed our massages. Many felt it was the best massage ever! The changes from last year is there is no longer a sauna/hot tub room available. Due to some restrictions they had to get rid of it. However this time they have a sister property where you can go with your pass to soak in the hot tub and swim in the Michigan shaped pool. It is quite warm in the pool area at 80 degrees. There is a public shower to rinse off the pool water after your swim.

This year we took a longer walk by the river seeing several people swimming in and enjoying the water as well as seeing the rented canoes and tubes go by. I didn't realize that the hotel did not serve breakfast so it is best to either bring something for the kitchen to make in your suite if you are lucky enough to get one. Or Macks was very good with a full breakfast menu and homemade biscuits and strawberry jam. Just turn right from the parking lot and go down to the second traffic light. Reasonable prices.

We were in suite 301. It had a beautiful view of the river with a large balcony. The master bedroom over looks the river. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The living room has a Murphy bed. Make sure you get the hotel to set it up for you before they leave. It needs to lock to be sturdy. The foot of the bed fell down in the middle of the night with our friend on it. She was ok and actually liked it that way to keep down the stomach acids.

We enjoyed the shops with nice boutique selections using our discount coupons and also the restaurant. Liked it so much bringing a second group later in the Summer.

Room Tip: 301 has a great view of the river. rm 304 has the most beds to accommodate the most people. Both h...

This is a beautiful, serene place to stay! My husband & I spent last night there-had a fabulous meal on the outdoor patio looking at the Cedar River. The landscaping is gorgeous, the staff is friendly and efficient, the rooms are clean, beautifully decorated, good size and very quiet at night!! We needed a good place to stay and this was the right pick!! I enjoyed shopping at the boutiques and while I didn't get a spa service, the staff was very nice to me when I looked around! I think next time I will use the Spa !! There is a 2 mile paved track that we walked in the morning and it was also very serene and enjoyable. Had a great breakfast at Mack's in Gladwin after our walk! we will definitely return soon for another wonderful stay!! Don't miss this place!!

Our daughter had the most beautiful outdoor wedding the month of May. The service, food and atmosphere .Its the complete package at the Riverwalk!!!

There were highlights from entering this place until we left. We were so impressed with the attentiveness and professionalism of the staff. They totally exceeded our expectations. Even while getting wedding photos taken after the ceremony, wait staff came over and brought us cold waters and snacks. They just went above and beyond.

The Condos are lovely, beautifully decorated, very spacious, clean and have a beautiful deck overlooking the river.

Oasis Salon did the hair for the wedding party, and all the girls looked fabulous and the prices were very comparable to other salons.

The two boutiques are awesome. A great place to find a unique outfit.

The grounds looked beautiful, with the little waterfalls, bridges, flowers and gazebo. So pretty.

The Gladwin Riverwalk makes a special occasion more memorable. Having one in your future this is the place for you!!!

Two of my girlfriends and I stayed here last weekend. Thanks to a random Google search we found this place. We took a chance and it paid off. Everyone here was so kind to us - the customer service was excellent.

We stayed in one of the luxury condos on the 3rd floor. The condo was HUGE. There were two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one half bath. In the living room there was a great murphy bed that folded down from the wall. The kitchen was gorgeous and they had utensils, plates, glasses, etc. Everything was in tip top shape and the place itself was very clean.

The package included two spa treatments. Everyone had a facial and we all agreed it's one of the best we've ever had. I had a massage and it was THE best I've ever experienced. I highly recommend Collette if you get a massage. We ended our spa day with all getting pedicures at the same time in nice massage chairs overlooking the beautiful river. Everyone at the spa was very nice, professional and funny.

We enjoyed eating at the Grill downstairs. The food was good and the service excellent. I recommend sitting out on the patio and enjoying the scenery. We also had fun shopping at the Chic Boutique (we didn't think we would!)

Overall, everything about this place was great. We do wish they had a pool on-site as we never ventured to the sister property. Also, if you want decent food in the area, there really is only one place (Riverwalk Grill) which is right there. So, I would recommend bringing something for breakfast to have on hand unless you're staying over on the Saturday night and can have brunch on Sunday morning. Lastly it was very bright in one of the bedrooms because of the massive windows.

My sister in law and I took advantage of the girlfriend getaway package in February of this year. The package included a 1 hour massage $20 vouchers per person for their restaurant-the food was superb-and one night in their beautiful hotel. The bathroom was stocked with towels galore and products from their spa. The only complaint I had was the time flew by way too fast! I would definitely go back again. Great place to stay!
