Reviewed 2 November 2013

Besides being completely ripped off for $130 for a very small outdated room with really basic amenities, we were located on the ground floor and could hear everything happening throughout the motel including:
-opening doors, closing doors
-people walking up and down the stairs to the second level
-people drinking beer in the plastic chairs outside our window late into the night
-a domestic fight which broke out at midnight
-the arguing couple's screaming children
-the arguing couple's makeup session (thankfully shortlived)
This was not high season and I think maybe 3 other rooms were occupied. The room was clean and the tv worked but otherwise I would not recommend this motel.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, insist on a 2nd floor room.

Very clean. The owners we're very friendly and accomadating. Beautuiful view and common areas outside. Barbecue and fire pits and lots of seating. There also was a pool that was very nice. There is a dock that has a paddle boat you can you use. W enjoyed just sitting on the dock, very relaxing. There is also comfortable chairs and a small side table outside your door. The owners go around and mingle with the customers enjoying the outside facilities. Every time we saw them they asked us how everything was and if we need anything. You can tell they have made some updates and are slowly doing them! The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable and huge! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We definitely plan on coming back!

This is terrible business practice!!! I went online and made a booking through the Booking.com service which this hotel is hooked up with and because it was a one night booking for two double rooms over a long weekend (JUNE 29 Sat to JUNE30 Sun 2013 coming up) the hotel owners called us and said the would not accept our reservation!!!!Even though it was already book with confirmation and all. Why would the not honor it!!!Because they are greedy.....and want to wait and hope that other people within these last few days will call and book for more than 1 night...To the owners of this place..u should be ashamed that you do not practice better business skills and if you are hooked up with these online booking companies you should put parameters on certain times of the year and notify them. Certainly don't ruin peoples vacations because you are GREEDY!!!!Be Honorable!!

We have stayed at the Campbellford River Inn Motel numerous times. It is always clean, neat and tidy. Beautiful view of the Trent River, nice clean inground pool.
Newly renovated rooms just this summer,
Wonderful place to stay in Campbellford, right across the road from the Arena. Great for the hockey parents!

We booked this room as we were attending the Havelock Jamboree and were unable to camp. This was a last minute decision and reviews of the hotel were not the best so we approached with trepidation. Reviews were unfair...nice rooms, pool with a view, and picnic tables and barbeque on the Trent river. Not sure what people want in a hotel, but this was a nice place to stay if you are in the area. Rooms are a little small, but who wants to stay in?!! ...and when was the last time you used a key with a hotel door?

Room Tip: All rooms face the river.

We arrived prior to a wedding we were attending and were very disappointed with the condition of the room. The bed was worn and uncomfortable. The sheets were old and smelly and the decor was from the early 80's. The grounds were also poorly maintained. Ok for 1 night but no longer.

Room Tip: Get room on second floor to avoid here noise through ceiling all night.
