“A place to relax”
Reviewed 27 October 2005

I've stayed at the Riverview every year since 2000 for an annual car event. It's like coming home. The owners treat everyone like family. The attached Restaurant has wonderful seafood, and on the other side, the Riverview bar is great. Cindy the bartender will fix up any drink with her special blend of fun and sarcasm. You may not get a mint on your pillow, but watching the sunset from the swing on the balcony is worth the price. Sure, it's an old building, but try it out and enjoy the fun!

This is an older hotel and has the delightful patina you would expect of a seaside hotel with a bar. If you are uptight (ie: from Chicago or New York) and want satin sheets and mints on your pillow, keep going down the Interstate. If you want a casual, laid back place to hang your hat where service is excellent and life is slow, this place is for you. The rates are very reasonable and the hotel owners are amoung the most amiable one could hope for. The hotel bar (Siegals) is an old fashioned watering hole of the highest order. It is one of those places where everyone treats you with friendly familiartity but if your ex-wife is there looking for you, they have never seen you. Great place, great folks, low price and all the charm an old hotel can offer.

This hotel is poorly maintained and dirty. There is a strong musty, moldy smell throughout. they advertise having a veranda, but there was a hole in the flooring there. The location is good, across the street from waterfront park and the Cumberland Island visitors' center; that is the only positive about it.
