My fiancé and I just celebrated my 40th birthday weekend at the Riverview Inn. The room was charming and very clean. There is a swing on the porch outside that faces the water. We especially enjoyed sitting out there at night. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Our hopes are to make this a yearly birthday tradition for rest...

We enjoyed our stay at the Riverbend Motel and our older friends had a lovely room at the house....we all enjoyed breakfast together; but, felt it was a little pricey. The location can't be better! It is a tradition for us...

We got married on Bald Head Island 20 years ago so we were celebrating our Anniversary. We decided to stay in Southport for 2 nights and spend the day of our Anniversary on Bald Head Island and we did. I have always wanted to stay at the Riverview Motel because of the quaintness and location. We were so glad we...

Thank Don H
Management response:

Don, We are honored you choose us to help celebrate your Anniversary! There is a special "old -school" feel, with sitting with your loved on the back porch swing watching the river flow. Those are memories to cherish! We are here for you in the future and hope you make us a tradition! Blessings from Southport, NC!

This is my second stay at this location, the first at the Riverview Inn "B&B" and this time the Riverside Motel on the river, across the street from the Riverview Inn. It is my understanding that either both locations are owned by the same owner, or the staff at the Riverview Inn manages the Riverside Motel. The Riverside Inn is...

It was a short stay, but we very much enjoyed staying at Lois Jane's Riverview Inn. We were made to feel welcomed and at home. The room was nice and the breakfast was the best. If you miss their breakfast, you have really missed a special meal. Well worth getting yourself out of bed and starting your day with the...

We've stayed here 3 times, in fact just got home today. The rooms are not fancy but clean. No hairdryer, tissues or a lot of space in bathrooms. We love the porches in the back of most rooms that have a swing where you can just stare out at the water and sky. Excellent location, walk to restaurants and to...

We stayed in the motel for 2 nights we got room 2. The restaurant OLIVERS is right next door. Since it was March it was quiet but I think room 1 and 2 might be noisy in the summer but we loved it the view was great and the location was very good. We opted to stay at the motel...

This is a great place for a getaway! Our first time staying at a B&B, and it was wonderful. My compliments to the chef. The food was excellent. The accommodations were roomy and comfortable. Great views of the waterfront. We could sit on our balcony and watch the boats go by. We could walk to shopping/dinning and didn't have to...

In addition to the charming location and beautiful rooms, the owner is lovely. A warm and relaxing atmosphere where unwinding was easy. Breakfast was amazing and absolutely chef quality. Wish I could have stayed longer in such a beautiful spot. We will be back!
