I stayed there the first week of August. We did have a leaky roof problem but once reported to the management they not only moved me to a new room but also offered to help carry our belongings. Yes, this place is not new but they try to keep this clean and affordable. Staff was great.

Rivera Motel Great location, on boardwalk and just steps from the beach. This motel met the needs of the recent graduates who were spending the week in Ocean City for “beach week”. The management was responsive to guests and responsible regarding housekeeping service. All amenities were functional such as refrigerator, a/c, TV, and bathroom. Clean pool with deck chairs. Great... More

came with a few friends over for the car show. We needed an affordable place to stay over for the weekend. Riviera was a good choice in the end. It was cheaper than most motels around town. The motel looked old from the outside and so was our room but it had everything a motel room would have. It was... More

It had a nice pool and balconies. It was only one block from oceanfront, which was nice...There was a pancake place across... More

The Riviera was absolutely disgusting and you could not pay me to stay there ever again! I mean that 100% of the way. First of all, our room didn't even have a fridge after we were told we would have one. The carpet and matresses had brown stains all over them. We didn't even have fitted sheets for the beds!...

This was the worst motel/hotel I have ever stayed in! My boyfriend and I were looking for something affordable located in a convenient place; close to the beach, boardwalk, and hotspots. Well we found the Riviera; our biggest vacation mistake. The room had a sickening foul odor. The beds were lopsided and had petruding springs which left us sleepless and... More
