“Perfect country weekend stay!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The River Inn Motel is a great place to stay when visiting Campbell Ford. It's really close to the local restaurants and shops. Also, its perfect for staying at when attending a wedding at Polmenna Barn. It's about a 20 minute $30 cab ride. Our room was nice ans clean. The staff very friendly and helpful. At night people were having a campfire by the river which I thought was cool. My only complaints were that the pool wasn't as nice as the photos made it appear to be, the room smelled a little musty and the shampoo bottles were reused. All in all a great stay!

The service was decent at this place, the staff were very nice but the rooms were over priced, the dock on the river was old and looked unsafe. The worst part was that we had a top floor room and could hear the entire conversation of the people in the room below us, until 3 am. They weren't yelling or anything, it was just a regular speaking sound level, but it sounded like they were standing right outside of our room. Overall it was clean, it had a fridge which was nice and the staff were nice too, but it was over priced and not sound proof at all!

The grounds, at first glance, are lovely. Lots of grass, two BBQ areas, large pool, pretty fountain, spectacular river front location. BUT, pool was not yet open for summer (in July??), both brick BBQs were crumbling, the concrete pads were uneven with construction rubble at the side, broken glass from previous night's drinkers. There is a large floating dock for boaters but the ramp to the shore has railing on both sides that was old and ramshackle, a definite hazard while the dock is bobbing in the water. A dumpster sits at rear of the grounds with 7 ugly storage sheds.
Price was reasonable for a king bed. But the room # 103, was on second floor with a narrow and steep stairway. So narrow that climbing up with luggage in both hands was tricky. My wife tripped on the top stair and went down face first on the landing. No harm done.
The room had a nice comfortable bed but was badly dated and not attractive at all. Fridge door cracked, door frame to bath room broken, but the bath room floor and walls seemed newly tiled and pretty. Good water pressure in shower. Large t.v. worked well, seemed new. Perhaps efforts are being made to upgrade units. The unit needs carpet update. A/C noisy and bothersome but worked well. I sat on the chair and wife said "Be careful" The dowels holding legs to frame had come out and a complete chair collapse was imminent. I shoved it together and left a note for owner to fix it. Saddest of all, when I made coffee in the morning, there was an old coffee packet in the machine. One can only presume the cleaning staff were not thorough.
Nice to have 2 chairs on deck to enjoy the view. There are no ice machines but owner/operator came up with a baggie of cubes.
Owner/operators quite friendly and helpful, but over all, I would pass on this motel. If you look at owner supplied photos of the grounds you will think it is splendid, but, photos do not tell whole story about this place. The pretty stone seating area is completely overgrown with weeds and unusable. Not shown are the crumbling brick BBQs and shaky hand railing at the dock, nor the difficult stairway to second level.
Not for me again.

Room Tip: Second level for better view and less noise from parking. But stairway is not satisfactory

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!
