“Charming place in a great location!”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

This older property is on a good site close to downtown and the Lake. Our room was super-large with a kitchen sink, refrig. and microwave. Rooms are not the usual rectangles, which makes them all the more interesting and "cute." Attached restaurant provided good food (if slow service at breakfast.) The staff was very helpful with a minor problem we had. If you need the modern, cookie-cutter room that most chains offer, the Riverwalk is not for you. But if you value the Mom and Pop type places, give it a go! We have no reservations about recommending it.

Was there on business in 2010 and 2011. The problems with plumbing, air conditioning, heating, and food all conspired to sour us on this place completely. Paid too much, enjoyed too little.

Would advise any other place as being preferable to the unique, Bermuda Triangle experience we endured. Maybe try staying in Pateros, a safe distance from Chelan, or just go to Campbell's, pay the price and get treated well!

We agree with aneckc!

Room Tip: The parking lot at Walmart may be preferable. It's much more quiet and peaceful

I'm sorry you had such a bad experience at the Riverwalk Inn. We have recently purchased this property, and are spending this winter updating rooms, improving comfort, and working on our cafe menu. I hope you are able to stop by and see all the improvements for yourself.

Unexpectedly found this charming little hotel earlier this week. Although a very simple room, it is quaint, clean, & freshly updated...nothing fancy or pretentious. If you need an exceptionally localized but budget concious stay, this is it. Campbell's is 2 blocks away, but 500% more expensive in fees. Beautiful waterfront park right across the street outside your door, outdoor seating to enjoy a beverage in the sun....what more could you ask? Bed was very comfortable, best pizza restaurant right across the street kiddy corner, main street with all the shopping 1 block away. Yet this place is very quiet. We loved it, I'd stay here again without any hesitation. Very friendly & helpful staff made this a delightful pleasure

I love this restaurant! Mother's Day I ordered the K8 2 egg omelette and totally wished I'd had 4 eggs it was that good. My husband had a Cajun rice dish I want to have next time. As I have issues with gluten it's nice to have a place to go that has a multiple options to choose from! Really fresh & tasty! Totally reccomend!

Maybe Chelans best kept secret.
The people who work here always make us feel welcome and appreciated.
The food is fresh and delicious. My wife loves the fact they have gluten free food!

We scouted out a number of properties to stay in Chelan. Before booking anything, I wanted to see the rooms, and accommodations then decide after. This was a fun place to stay, but small enough to seem almost like a bed and breakfast. Centrally located, across from Riverside park, and 1/2block away from the downtown main drive, this is a hidden gem.
The rooms are small, but they strive to make it a place to come out of your room. If you want to come to Lake Chelan and spend most of the time inside, book the Best Western, and wish for a 3star hotel... This place is for those who are coming in to freshen up, get some coffee or snack, then go out and enjoy the beauty of the place.

Room Tip: The rooms are different for particular purposes. Some have balconies, another has a private room fo...

Friendly owners, helpful but VERY basic accommodations. Motel 6 probably better. Mattress way too soft. Kitchen facilities very spartan. Tiny microwave. Dark room. Tiny bathroom. Poor TV reception. Nice wash cloth.

This was a last minute choice when everything was booked up for the 4th of July weekend. For $180 a night it was outrageous and not worth more than $100 a night. Would not choose to stay here again if possible.
