  • 2.0.Poor

    Ripoff and very bad experience

    Overall we had a very bad experience at this hotel. The hotel was relatively clean but we had the impression the hotel was part of an “old boys club” which made the stay and the environment extremely uncomfortable. In addition, we had called the hotel 2 weeks prior to arrival and asked if it was possible to fish near the hotel. The hotel told us we could do so and that the license was $50 dollars. When we arrived, the hotel sent us down a very rough road in a tiny car (they saw our car b/f sending us) to a local river without any fishing license. There were no fish but a local farmer interrogated us. When we returned to the hotel they charged us over USD $225 for 4 hours of rental equipment and no proof of having secured a license. It was the biggest ripoff. The hotel never told us the cost (except for the license). To this day we do not know a license was issued even though we paid for one. The fact that they did not tell us the cost of the equipment, provide us w/ the license and send us down what appeared to be private property was extremely poor. We would not recommend staying at this hotel and if you do use extreme caution!!!

    Surprisingly very nice. When you first come up to it, it's not much to look at... but then we realized that's part of the facade. It's meant to be like an old fishing building... Inside, is a different view... extremely well done. Staff is overly friendly. We had a great stay. The best of sitting out in the hot tub overseeing the river... I highly recommend.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This property is right on the river, which gives it such a pleasant feel. The room and entire property were super clean. Check in process was seamless and the receptionist was very welcoming and gave us a tour of the property and walked us to our room. He also recommended a few local waterfalls to see and they were beautiful! There are many amenities such as, a sauna, a small outdoor hot tub, a bar and restaurant and a nice lobby. It is very close to the town of Hella, with food and a gas station. I would highly recommend staying at this property.

    Great hotel for this area

    I absolutely loved river hotel. It was charming, simple, clean and very very friendly. The receptionist greeted us warmly and showed us all around the place and he was really helpful with everything nearby. The rooms were simple and clean, and the hotel had a great lounge area and sauna and hot tub!
