We were excited they had free bikes which we signed up for but after going a mile or so we realized they were in bad shape and not really safe so we turned around and went back and went for a walk instead. The helmets weren't safe either.
The staff were very friendly but we noticed that the toiletries and towels were not replenished regularly during our stay, which was disappointing as it was not a cheap hotel. It was nice to have a kitchenette but the fridge was old and very loud, as was the AC unit, which was also very loud.
The bed was too soft.
At midnight before the morning I was flying to DC I received an odd (non-customer-facing) zendesk email informing me that River Inn had overbooked and would not honor my reservation. We called (800.468.3578) and were told that I would be re-booked at 1 of 2 nearby hotels—and I would be informed which by email before 5:30 AM. No email arrived. I called the number again at 8:30 AM (as I boarded the plane and after sitting on hold was eventually assigned to Washington Circle. Customer service was very helpful but looking back on it, the system wasn't able to make their own promised deadlines, causing unnecessary anxiety. When I arrived at the new hotel, there was more trouble: the room they had booked was only available for one night and then I would have to move so they downgraded me to a room so I could stay for the duration. Oy vey!
Parking. We ended up finding a parking garage up the block for $16 a day which was great.
