Recent guest reviews

Room was comfortable, bed comfortable. Had extras like a TV in the bathroom so you could watch a program while taking a whirlpool bath. Didn't do that, but it was available! I've never stayed in a facility that had that perk. It was a good stay.

The hotel was decent. The room was large. Housekeeping could do a better job. Maintenance needs to work on tub drain & tv in bathroom, Breakfast was very good. Restaurant in the hotel was good.

Pillows were way too thick and firm. Otherwise a good experience.

I found the staff quit friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub were clean and in working order. The whole experience was very good.

We stayed here while on a visit to Winona State. It's nearby and located near restaurants and gas stations. Check-in was great, they were ready for us and took seconds. Very accomodating staff who gave us good directions. Room was clean, bathroom clean. Continental breakfast in AM was just ok, but good to grab cup of coffee for the morning.

We went to visit our friends at WSU- pretty close to the campus. The staff was very frieldly, we asked for another blanket and not even 5min later there was a knock at the door. There was a party in the room next to us and unless we went in the hall we didnt hear a sound! only downer was that we asked for a smoking room, we got a room on the 3rd floor, no smoking and no balcony so we had to walk downstairs and go outside. But overall i would stay there agian and would recommend this hotel!

One of the nicest hotels in Winona

We stayed here to visit my inlaws to go to Oktoberfest in LaCrosse and my daughter (3 yrs) wanted to swim. The first room we got reaked of smoke, so we switched rooms right away. The next room we got smelled, but was better. The pool area was nice on Sat, but was never picked up all day Saturday and there were a lot empty beer cans and used towels all over on Sunday morning. There weren't any pool towels left, either. The breakfast buffet was decent, but poorly organized. I spent 5 min trying to find butter for the waffles. Our room had some sort of water stain on the ceiling and it needed to be fixed, pieces of the ceiling were falling off. It was remarkably quiet considering there was a wedding reception on Sat and some sort of company meeting Friday. The staff was friendly and helpful, but housekeeping seemed lacking. The location is great, right next to lots of shopping and restaurants.

We were attending a family reunion in LaCrosse so we arrived late at the Inn and left early. I wish we could have spent more time there. The location is beautiful. The hills were just beginning to show their fall colors. The pool looked inviting even though we didn't take the time to try it out. There was a wedding at the Inn, but we didn't hear anything in our room. It was comfortable and nicely appointed.

The staff was friendly enough. The room clean and beds comfortable. Wasn't thrilled to have to use my room key to access the ice. We asked about a place to eat, the first person mentioned a couple of places, but the second person provided us with a list and their locations. I was hoping to get some breakfast or juice in the morning, but the breakfast area didn't open until 9 am on Saturday, not very convenient if you need to be somewhere, which we did.

The staff was exceptional at providing me directions and information on area happenings.

I'd reserved 2 rooms; my cousins arrived ahead of me and were told that my room had been reserved but theirs hadn't. Fortunately, there was an extra room available. Front desk staff were not friendly or helpful; one refused to let me see my receipt upon check-out until I demanded to make sure that the missed reservation had been billed correctly! My room's fan/AC was so mildewed and moldy that I had to load up on asthma meds and seriously wondered if I'd end up in the ER, and my partner got a sore throat, even with it OFF. The room was dusty, too. The heated pool was too chilly to swim in. I asked a staffer for a couple of plastic bags for ice for a bumped elbow and was grudgingly doled out one bag. I have yet to be able to reach the manger to discuss this with her.

The Riverport is a good value, comfortable, and pet friendly. They also have very friendly staff members, which is important to me. I have stayed here several times and no longer consider any other hotels in Winona when I am in town.

Great service, great location, great price. Good value for your money

The staff was top notch!

We thought the hotel was very nice and had what we needed for a night away. Excellent value.

friendly people. nice location. good size, clean room. A bit outdated. Free wireless internet takes a few try, but after that works great.

This hotel has a good location, large rooms, a good pool, decent breakfast, and was remarkably quiet for the location. One minor problem: a tile was missing in the bathroom, which makes the room feel a bit run-down. One serious problem: there were clearly a number of guests smoking in their rooms, and the smell pervaded the third floor. I imagine this is tough for employees to monitor, but perhaps posting signs in rooms warning guests that they will be fined for smoking in a non-smoking facility would discourage it.

I have stayed here a couple of times now and have been completely satisfied every time. It is in a handy location. Very scenic, yet close to everything.

We stayed here for a wedding. The rooms were very nice and clean. We had booked a king and they put us with two queens. However, they set us up with a new king room when we brought this to their attention. The rooms were a little dated, but very clean. The staff was very friendly and they provide a welcome package including coupons and information on the area...nice touch.
