“Thank you for a nice stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Stayed over night for a funeral. Very clean room! Very nicely decorated and was very happy. Not fancy but very quaint. The price was very reasonable and they even turn the lights on for you so you don't come back in the dark!
Highly recommend this motel! Love that you can park right in front of your room.

Thank you also, for posting a great review for our motel. We don't take reviews like yours for granted. We also do some travel and try to learn from the places we spend time in ... Turning the lights on is something we wanted to do because it was done for us, and made us feel like someone cared ... .
Thanks again!

Rooms are very clean, owners are very accomodating. The room had a small fridge and microwave. The hotel is close to downtown area and good restaurant right across the street. Price couldn't be beat. The owners gave us a tour of the other facilities (i.e., cabins). Very reasonable prices and nice view of the river. We'll definitely stay again.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our lodging facilities! Reviews like yours are not taken for granted. We are happy that our guests appreciate what we do, and enjoy spending time in our motel and cabins. This includes the innkeepers, and our team of employees, because it is their effort also that makes a difference. We could not do it by ourselves. Thanks again, and God bless!

We have been staying in this nice older motel for a number of years, and found the waterside rooms to be just as nice as ever. We have never stayed in the street side rooms, but the waterside rooms are spacious, with real wood furniture, and wood trim details around the room, vanity, and bathroom. The vanity/sink and closet area is spacious, and semiprivate (if thats important to you). That area is also separate from the bathroom, which is nice. The owners have kept this older motel looking very nice, and don't let maintenance, plants, etc. linger if attention is needed. The mattress was wonderful, but the pillows are rock-hard, so if you need something softer, bring your own. These riverside rooms cost a little more than street side, but you can sit or eat out on your deck right next to the water! No pets allowed in the waterside rooms, but we found out that Room 12 does allow pets now. The road along this side of the motel is quiet, with a great walking trail, and there are big fields down the road to exercise your pet. I love motels with windows that open, and especially windows on two sides of the room, so you can get a cross breeze if you want it.

Room Tip: There is no pool or fitness center - sorry if my rating confused you. Waterside rooms are great. Bri...

We spent two evenings at the Riverside Motel during the 4th of July holiday. The price was right, the room large, the bed comfortable and the bathroom spacious and clean.
We really enjoyed sitting out on the deck overlooking the river, good place for an adult beverage in the evening, or a cup of coffee in the morning.
The Hayward area has plenty to do, and the Riverside is a great place to recharge your batteries.
We'll be back.

My boyfriend and I traveled from Chicago to stay in Hayward, WI, and we had a great time! The hotel was perfect! The owners are wonderful and they keep the motel looking great! We walked to the bars and the downtown area for dinner and were able to catch a few fish just a few feet away at the river. The price was exactly what we were looking for and when we go back we plan to stay at their cabins. If you're looking for a nice place to relax, this is it!

This is a great little place to stay. I will stay here again. Simple, clean and well worth the price. Very close to town. I was able to park my truck and boat trailer right on site, which is something I look for when I look for a place to stay. They have a very nice property, and all the other guests were pleasant. Seems like this is where people go to have a good nights sleep and stage their weekend get away from.

This was a first time stay, but I will be back. Like other reviews, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The extra large shower was a extra bonus. Some rooms with a balcony face the river in back of the motel. With in walking distance to downtown. Prices are right compared with some the chain hotels in town.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony over looking the river.
