If you love walking downtown and to the beach, this is the place to stay. Rooms are a bit older and small, but clean. Staff is very nice and accommodating. Stay in a river view room and you get a picnic table and grill. Take the river walk path to downtown or beach,

Though they are both operated by the same people. The Riverside motel is considerably different from the little Riverside motel. Be aware of that. The Riverside was a small room with no frills. We were happy it had a shower. Now it was clean and well kept. But it was expensive for what we got. It was a last resort...

We were coming to the area for a concert and procrastinated until the Riverside was the only motel we could afford. We were allowed to check in early,which was very helpful.Staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. Our room did not have a river view except for through the bathroom window. The room was dated but clean. The bed was less...

Close to the highway. Very noisey with semis passing bye all night. Beds need new mattresses. Won't be back. Had to climb stairs with luggage and cooler. No elevator. No desk help in the pm. No ice machines. Patio furniture very uncomfortable.

I stayed at this hotel in June 2016. The first room they tried to give me had been broken into by having the screen cut and the window pushed open. The caretaker was concerned but simply retrieved the key to the adjacent room and continued my check-in. When I arrived at my new room the first thing I did was...

We stumbled upon this place and are sure glad that we did. The location is not only convenient but offers a nice view of the water. Our room was clean and everything was in working order. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. Would definitely stay again!

This place is a dump. Paid over $130 for a non-river view. The rooms are old. I know it was not cleaned very well b/c there was a Graham cracker underneath my bed. The lamp was dusty. The carpet is disgusting and filthy. The bathroom floor was slippery weird. This room should not be $130, more like $50. The front...

My husband and I stayed at this motel for a night away without the kids. We were looking for something relatively cheap near the Little River Casino and only paid $99 for the room. We had a single queen room and it served it's purpose as somewhere to just sleep. The room was very small, but clean and neat with...

Absolutely charming we came for the Hops and Props in Manistee. So happy we chose the Riverside Motel the room was clean had a view of the lake and was pet friendly too for a great value! I would highly recommend this to anyone beats the Traverse city prices and not far from there. Bryan was very friendly and helpful.

Just stayed here over Labor Day Weekend. I booked the room a few months ago and felt like I was taking a gamble because the room was inexpensive and the motel didn't have a website. Based on the previous reviews it didn't seem so bad. I loved it! The whole place has been recently remodeled. The owner/innkeeper Bryan was super...
