I was here four years ago, largely on the basis of good TripAdvisor reviews, and on my second visit it was even better than the first time I was there. Lovely old hotel, beautiful verandas outside each room, and really exceptional service, from the front desk to housekeeping to the nice person who brings breakfast to your room. Perfect location...

Beds were comfortable and really enjoyed having actual beach towels to go to the pool with. The staff from front desk to maid were awesome and all went out of their way to make our stay extra...

My expectations were met, and then some! Our room was awesome, comfortable, decorated nicely and just all around cozy. The staff was more than accommodating and friendly. We celebrated the wife's birthday and our wedding anniversary. They left us welcome card and a congratulation card, hand written, great surprise and nice gesture. I ordered a bottle of wine for our...

We loved our two night stay at the Riverview. We enjoy historic hotels with character and charm. The Riverview has a long history and a great location. The rooms are small and close, but they feature lots of built in storage spaces and met our needs as a family of three. We loved our porch and view of the drawbridge....

A nice spot for family vacation. We stayed here for a quick beach getaway and trip to Kennedy space center. The hotel was in walking distance to the beach.

This is a historic building in a waterfront location. Breakfast is delivered to your room, which is a nice touch. The rooms are very, very small and the bathrooms are outdated. It is more of a bed and breakfast style. What surprised us was the lack of maintenance and cleanliness. There is a lot of dust on their products in...
