I loved this place. Rooms are clean and cozy, staff is friendly, and you just can't beat being so close to the Peninsula and Waldemeer Park. We will be booking earlier next year to ensure availability!

Our room was very clean. i love a motel and being able to park right outside the room. Hard to find a decent nicely kept motel these days and this one is. Parking is a little tight. Waldameer amusement park is right across the street!

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary the first time we visited Presque Isle. It's close to those things we wanted to do. It's a little dated but honestly when we travel we are never in our room so if it's clean and comfortable then it's good by us. I was a little worried that we'd hear the...

The location and price make this hotel a good value. Whether visiting the amusement or state parks, there are no hotels closer. We were able to walk back to the Riviera at lunch after taking a break from Waldameer which was just across the street. Our room was very small but we were given an option for a larger room...

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised, the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. We usually would stay at the Inn at Presque Isle but since they tore it down we wanted a motel that had the same kind of feel and the Riviera does. It is a relaxed atmosphere and is very close to the...

I have stayed here for about 5 yrs. It's time to put some money back into the property. A good paint job inside & out. The carpet needs a good scrub, all my socks have been thrown away due to the black stains. Looks like I wore them outside all day. Every employee I came in contact with was extremely...
