Good value, clean and quiet. Good restaurant next door

No notice that a $100 cash deposit would need to be made because I was considered a “local”. Had to be cash, not a credit card. Was told it was for incidentals. The door to the bathroom had a hole in it.

Staff pretty complacent and not very helpful . Continental breakfast nor coffee not available every day during my stay

We were one of many people who needed to find a room during hurricane Irma, and we stayed at the Riviera Inn during this event. So this review is not your typical stay. In fact, the people staying there pushed the staff to their personal limits. Overall, it was nicer than we expected and cleaner than we expected. So it outdid our expectations. Lots of restaurants to walk to, park behind the motel, nice pool, and close to the beach and outlet stores. Foley is a great town with tons of unexpected things to do for kids and families. That includes Lambert's ThrowedRolls to Old Time Pottery. You can walk to the Shrimp Basket right next door and Dodges across the street! And if you wanted a place to stay and go to the beach, the beaches nearby are one of the nicest in the US to visit, with pure white sands. So overall, it is a great family vacation area and place to stay. Don't listen to any negative reviews. The location is perfect.

Room was adequate. Cleanliness was average. Staff wasn't rude but unfriendly and lacking personality. Cleaning staff was awful, never left enough towels for the quests in room. Bfast awful. Overall, if your looking for an adequate place to sleep while spending most of your time at the beach, this is your place.

WAS GOOD. SOME OF HOTEL STAFF UNFRIENDLY. BUT OVERALL, GOOD

The room was clean and the overall condition very good. However, the WiFi did not work. Our wash cloths and hand towels were not replaced. I noticed others having to go to the front desk for these items. There are no blankets or bedspreads in the room. On the plus side, the beach is not far and the shopping outlets and sportsplex are very close.

Hotel staff was great. The room was terrible and the bathroom was even worse. Had to wear shoes because the carpet was so dirty. The bathtub was nasty. It had a ring around it. We are just hoping it was a rust stain in the toilet. Will not stay there again and will not recommend it to anyone. Sometimes you get what you pay for. Cheaper isn't always worth it.

Room was very comfortable. They only had cereal, muffins and toast No fruit or hot food for food for breakfast.

Stayed here last winter for a few days too. It's a good motel. Nice amenities, very well maintained, friendly people and clean.

A shower chair was requested for my 85 year old father. The front desk clerk refused to honor the request per the manager since he was not in a handicapped room. The manager refused to speak to me! The room had a huge stain on the floor, phone did not work, and no tv remote control.

Very friendly staff. Was thtilled they allowed us to let our baby girl & us swim as long as kept noise down. Awesome experienxe. Will be staying there for now on when we come down to visit our family in Pensacola FL & Foley AL.

Checking in the staff was unprofessional. And the room didn't look like they vaccummed or swept

Good Clean nicely proportioned rooms. Friendly employees, walking distance to several restaurants.

Definitely would stay again. Nice well kept motel with very comfortable furnishings. And it's clean. It could probably be a little cleaner, but for a unbranded motel I doubt you'll find much better... Excellent super friendly staff.

The hotel staff was great on accommodating my needs! Close to outlets stores.

The air conditioner caused the carpet to get soaked in water. They moved us to another room. Enjoyed the coffee machine in the room. The bed was ok fir comfort. The TV worked.

This place was very clean, the carpets were not stained up. smell good, good simple breakfast. Beds look good, not old sheets and spreads. Would definitely stay again. Vanessa

Hotel was wonderful! Beds were soft, room was clean, and the staff was friendly. The breakfast bar leaves a little to be desired and the eating area is cramped, but other than that, my family and I were extremely pleased. I feel that we got quite a bargain and would DEFINITELY stay at this hotel again.

Thank you for the review and taking the time to review our property. We are happy to see you had a great stay. We are currently working on our breakfast ideas. We have been weighing out our options as a large amount of guest have said they would rather have a cheaper room rate and more dialed back breakfast so they can have more money to spend out on the town or beach. Few have said the would like a big hot breakfast. So my goal has been to give a both decent, small and fast breakfast and a cleaner, cheaper room rate and hopefully win over both sides. We again hope to see you again soon and say thanks again for choosing Riviera Inn for your hotel lodging needs.
