I work for an airline and my company arranged for our crew to stay at the Riverhouse. What a delightful hotel! The setting is amazing. We walked across the Deschutes river, on a bridge, to our rooms. All three of us had fireplaces in our rooms, with logs/ matches waiting for us! Our rooms overlooked the river. The employees were all helpful. My breakfast at Currents was one of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time. The home fries and ham steak! Thank you so much and I hope to return soon.
As a first time visitor to Bend, the Riverhouse really set a positive tone for what turned out to be a nice little 2-day getaway. The room was cozy and comfortable and the river view was relaxing. Despite the fact that my room was located at the end of the building, near a busy road, there was no noticeable noise disruption whatsoever. Additionally the hotel is located near many amenities and has convenient highway access to other areas around Bend. I enjoyed my stay quite a bit and would not hesitate to stay here again.
This hotel has one of the best settings for relaxing and enjoying listening to the river. The patio outside of the restaurant is quiet and a great place to relax. The downside is that the rooms are located in building separated from the main building and from the pool area. Plan on walking outdoors to enjoy the facilities. Our room was nice, clean and comfortable. The water is very hot. Be careful. The heater/AC was a bit noisy but tolerable. The bed was a firm but comfortable. Great WiFi signal. Located across from a shopping mall and a 24hr restaurant (Shari's) Easy access to freeway.
I really enjoyed my time here; easy to get some work done while sitting in room, with a view overlooking the River was exquisite. Parking was easy, and staff was friendly. I would highly recommend upgrading to a room facing the river, as it was with it.
Don't let the pictures fool you. In no way is this a luxury resort. It's an aging motel at resort prices. Our room did indeed have a gorgeous view of the river (that's what you're paying for). But at $250 a night I expected more than stained carpets, a lingering smell of stale cigarettes, moldy shower grout and a toilet that won't flush unless you hold down the handle. You won't get a complementary breakfast, or even a room cleaning unless you specify. (I get that staffing shortages have curtailed services, so that's fine. I just used folded toilet paper to replace the tissues in the empty tissue box.) The room had no information about the hotel amenities, local area or even a menu of the restaurant. The TV is OK, but like the other reviewer noted, even if you have Netflix account, it won't load past 24%. Apparently no one has bothered to fix that. The restaurant is good, but the dinner entrees are overpriced. I ended up skipping breakfast the next morning when the hostess sat me at a dark, drafty table next to the kitchen, which was blaring music. When I asked if I could sit at one of the many empty tables near the window, she said no because they were seating according to server stations. Fine, but why not just move the station where guests could look out over the river? I felt so unwelcome I ended up going to a local restaurant, which was probably good because my companion said the restaurant coffee was bad. Did I mention the price was $250 a night? Besides the river views, the only other bright spot was the friendly and helpful staff. I feel badly that their tips are probably affected by the malaise that hung over the place. You won't be pampered here, but you will receive a hefty bill for your stay.…
