I was visiting Racine to visit family with myself, my two kids and my three cousins. A family member who lives in Racine actually recommended this place to us. When I first saw the hotel I thought it looked trashy, but against my better judgement decided to check it out for myself. The room was disgusting and smelled horrible. The carpet was dingy and very old. There were towels in the bathroom that had blood on them. My daughter actually started crying and said "I don't want to stay here. I had seen enough and went down to the front desk to get my money back. The first staff member was polite, but stated it was the hotel policy not to give refunds after 20 minutes. I stated I had not been there 20 minutes but she said I had been. Then a very rude staff member took over and said I could not get my money back. After about 20 minutes of this staff member threatening to call the police, I just gave up and moved to a much nicer, clean hotel (America's Best). A staff member at this hotel actually told me that Riverside was a pretty bad hotel and had the "20 minute limit" in place because there were a lot of drug deals that went on there. I was appalled. The thought that I had my children and cousins in that environment gave me the chills. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE stay as far away from this "inn" as you can possibly get.
