“My third visit for the Christmas Lighting Festival”
Reviewed 6 November 2006

This was our third visit and it has constantly improved every year. Rooms are ample size and comfortable with a great view of the river, very convenient for town, even in the snow.
Drive in, Park , and have fun.
Hot tub great.
Breakfast is more than you need.
We are booked for 2007.

I was pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness and comfort of our main bedroom, and pleased with the relaxing river view from our balcony. The bed was cozy with two down comforters, and breakfast each morning was plentiful and delicious, with boiled eggs, fresh fruit, and baked goods. A large window unit gave us complete control over our room's temperature. Every staff member we encountered was courteous and helpful. I will stay here on my next visit to Leavenworth.

I highly recommend the Apline Rivers Inn. Having traveled all over the country this is by far one of the cleanest motel/hotels we have ever stayed in. All the rooms have a view and deck overlooking the Wennatchee River. The staff are A-1, from the front desk to housekeeping. It's within walking distance of the Bavarian village in Leavenworth, and if you've never been there, it's well worth your time.

This will be one place we stay whenever we're in the mountains.

We stayed for one night in July.
This motel is fairly basic, the rooms were quite small but clean and comfortable.
Our room had a small balcony overlooking the river, it caught the morning sun and even at breakfast it was too hot to sit there, however it was very pleasant at night.
The motel is slightly out of town, but still walking distance to the shops and restaurants.
The hotel would not take a booking by email even with a credit card, and as I was out of the US it was an expensive call to book, so we took our chances and turned up and fortunately there was room.
There was a reasonable swimming pool and spa.
The best thing by far was the free breakfast, an extensive continental breakfast is set out in the office and you take it back to your room on a tray.
This made the motel very good value.

We will never stay at the Alpine Rivers Inn again! Stay Away!!
Upon our arrival, we instantly noticed that this property is old and in need of refurbishing. It is NOT in town - it is as far from town as you can get and still be in Leavenworth. The room, while pretty, was a disappointment. The deck "on the Wenatchee River" was old, loose, and in serious need of repair. We would not let our 9 yr old son go on it! If you want to be "on the river" as they put it, you must climb down a scarily steep bank to reach it - there are no trails or walkways provided. The view was ok - while you could see the river, you also are right next to the main bridge into town and the things you see most are the bridge traffic and the tiny cabins across from you. The pool is small, but our son loved it. Hot tub was fine, although there were people smoking while sitting in it!
At checkout we were charged $30/nt more than our reservation price. The clerk cancelled that and tried to redo it. This time we were charged $20/nt more. Finally she managed to charge us the correct amount. Upon arriving home, I checked the bank online and found THREE charges from this hotel! NO refunds! It took nearly a week to straighten everythng out and get the funds back in my account.
Don't risk staying here - there are much better places at the same rates which are in town and much less disappointing.

When reservations were made, we were told we had the king suite - a bedroom separate from the main room, a deck ON the Wanatchee river and a refrigerator and microwave in the room. We would be on the main level.

Upon arrival, we were on the second floor and the main room was about 5' by 10' - barely a closet - with no refrigerator or microwave. We asked about the appliances and they delivered them to our room, placed on the floor (the door to the refrigerator wouldn't close. We had to move it onto a bench). The bedroom was HUGE! It was very nice. The deck was a standard, narrow deck that you could see the river somewhat from. Not the river view suggested by the person on the phone or the website.

OK - we can still deal with this. BUT within 2 hours, the airconditioner froze. We could see the ice on it. The told us to turn it off, run the fan for about 10minutes and it would be fine. We did and it wasn't. It froze up about every 2 hours - a very long, hot night.

We were supposed to stay two nights, but we were told the the air unit was all we could have. It was old and they were not going to replace it. The girl at the front desk said this is not a new problem (hmmm.......) We told them we did not want to stay the second night.

They did cancel our reservation and gave us a small discount on the first night. The problem was it was a Friday and we couldn't get in anywhere else. We had to cut our vacation short a day.

If the room is in ill repair, they should have taken care of the problem so we could stay and finish our vacation as planned. Reservations were made well in advance.
