Bad effort made to upgrade the hotel especially in the hallways and the bathroom touch ups. There were multiple bad wallpaper touch ups and the employees we openly carting the "behind the scenes" laundry items/carts openly to guests. There were two elevators-the building was only 2 stories-which were slow and needed a major design upgrade. The room was clean, nicely... More

I was supposed to stay at the Riviera over Thanksgiving. Unfortunately upon our arrival, we had to be walked to another hotel due to a water main break that was causing a fire hazard. My review is not for the hotel stay, but rather the service we received during a stressful holiday situation. I want to thank the front desk... More

Run down and not worth the price. I stepped on a block with a screw in it that was next to the bed. The room was not turned over. Room service for coffee was over 20 dollars. The elevator was also not in service. Even though they did not clean our room someone made sure to knock on the door... More

Came to the hotel for my Sons wedding on Nov. 18th!

We were not at all impressed with this hotel. Many of the areas were worn and dirty (building 4 and 5) Carpets torn and dirty looking. The thermostat in our room did not work and so the room was consistently 63 during the day, 56 at night. If you turned it off the room became very stuffy. Couldn't leave open... More

Our friend the bride reserved a block of rooms at the hotel and we stayed there after the recent renovation (2016). A few hiccups were visible - the mirror mosaic by the elevator in Bldg 4 was unfinished and only one of the two elevators were in service so that meant for longer waits. The pool dj was great fun...
