Majuro
Reviewed 10 March 2017 via mobile

We needed a place to stay on our way home from a camping trip in Death Valley. The River Inn is clean and well-located downtown. The staff was friendly. Our room smelled like cigarettes but we were quickly moved to another. This place has everything we need at a great price.

We came to this place to stay while we were on vacation here in Susanville. We were happy to the nice room here. It was on the large side and very clean. Check in was a breeze. They're pet friendly here and charged 11.00 for our Chihuahua to stay here but they also gave us a senior discount so it...

Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Reviewed 20 October 2016

We reserved the River Inn for a summer weekend at a rate that seemed to be too good to be true, and were therefore a little wary as we pulled into the lot along the commercial strip. The lobby in this older building has not been updated in a few decades, but check in was very friendly. We parked at...

Hi, CorpsofDiscovery... Glad you made way to the River Inn during part of your California journey from Milwaukee, Wisconsin!

Motels - well you get what you pay for and for our price we thought it was great. Call direct and get the best price (always do that if you can). It was clean, a microwave, little fridge, and they provided coffee and a danish in the morning to get you going (located at the check in area). The staff...

Greetings, Bunchkin... Thanks for taking a minute to reach back out to us on our TripAdvisor page. We believe that you don't have to sacrifice amenities for value and, in addition to our on-site guest laundry area, having a mini-fridge and microwave in each room helps your travel budge to a lot further. We hope your journey back to Canada...

We were tired after a long day of driving... I jumped on TripAdvisor to hopefully find a room in Susanville. I was able to secure a booking at the River Inn. Upon arrival they did not have our reservation! Thankfully the kind desk clerk ( who has been there since 1976), found us a small room near the exterior stairs...

We stopped in Susanville because there was a huge motorcycle convention in Reno, so had to find something fast. I called and was able to get a room at River Inn. It was not cheap, due in part, to the $15 added for my dog. The room was 'OK'.... not updated or very clean. With the water shortage in Northern...

We made reservations two weeks in advance but when we arrived we were told we could not have a ground floor room because a baseball team had reserved them all. We explained that due to our age and disabilities that it would be very difficult to carry our luggage up the steep stairwell. The manager apologized but said there were...

Hi, Victor... Please know we're sorry you were disappointed. We wish we could have moved you to a lower room; however, the Booking dot Com reservation you made did not mention the need for a lower room, only the 'type' of room. As you saw, both a baseball team and a Wild Fire Crew took up every other room we...
