Individual guest reviews

  • The location is good, we booked this hotel for a long weekend for my son's graduation and lady at the front desk is friendly and helpful. Rooms at the riverside are clean , very basic and small.

    The staff were very unfriendly and the sheets were pretty bad.

  • Location is very good and its just a place to sleep. Staff are always friendly and the shower is fine. Great restaurants all around here up and down a few blocks on Broadway.

    Worst hotel ever, tiny room and no bugs, clean sheets and towels. Tight elevators, outdated facilities.

  • In a very good location and the #1 subway line is 3 pleasant blocks away. The hotel is very quiet as well, staff members are always helpful and friendly, the owner just probably doesnt have the cash to do all at once. The beds are excellent.

    Rooms are very small.

  • The location was great and we parked free on Riverside Drive, rode the subway day and night. This hotel was fine, service were excellent and the room was authentic old New York. Sheets, towels, floors, and showers were clean.

    The beds were not changed at all over the course of our stay, the staff were not very friendly and the dirty little bathroom was just that dirty and little.

  • Location very near subway station and central Park. Quality of other hotels, good price and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our rooms were clean.

    We realized the place wasnt bad at all, quite old building and needs a bit of money spent on like new doors. Small lobby and the small lounge was being used for a conference, the sheets on one of the beds were not changed from previous guests.

  • I liked the location and near the subway at 79th street and Broadway. Clean, comfortable, great value, reasonable price and riverside Tower met all of criteria, and turned out to be just fine. The staff were nice, the room was cozy and comfortable, the sheets towels were clean.

    The hotel went out of its way to make parking as easy as possible and the suite is not large enough for 5 adult women.

  • Great view and location, subway stop is very convenient, clean bed then Riverside Tower is for you. This hotel is just for slipping at night, staff is friendly and well The rooms are smaller than dorms.

  • The price was great for being in New York City and the place was cleaned every day and we had plenty of clean towels and washcloths. Staff were friendly and helpful, the TV remote consisted of a pair of pliers left near the 13 inch TV.

    The rooms are too small.
