As an independent company without a national franchise affiliation, we do not answer to a "chain" headquarters - only to you, our guests. By design, Riversage hotels do not have swimming pools, bars, lounges, and convention centers. These expensive amenities are required by most hotel chains, but many guests do not want them (and do not want to pay for them). Without the costs of a national franchise and the extra "frills," we are able to save money in building and operating Riversage Inns. And we pass those savings along to you in the form of lower room rates.
But make no mistake - Riversage Inns offer high quality and excellent value. Our hotels are built of concrete and steel, with an extra layer of sound insulation between the walls of each guest room, highly unusual in our price category. Our beds are made up with a third sheet covering the blanket, and we take a little extra time in cleaning the guest rooms. Over the years, we have refined the Riversage formula of extra touches and amenities based on guest input. What does this mean to you? It means you will rest in a clean, quiet, comfortable and secure environment, all at a great room rate.
The Riversage philosophy is to provide a quality and affordable hotel experience, and to treat our guests the way we would want to be treated if we were standing in your shoes.
