    For the price, you will not be able to find a better hotel so close to downtown. We were able to walk everywhere. The view is amazing - the river is nearby (although it flooded when we were there). We will difinitely stay there again.

    We are so happy you like your time at the River Lodge. Being close to downtown is definitely a plus. The river may have been high from the mountain snow melting. We hope you come back again.
