Had this hotel not been $195/night, I probably would have given it 3 stars, maybe 4.  It was clean, there was an acceptable cereal/yogurt/fruit/coffee continental breakfast until 11am, a pool, and the bed was sort of comfortable.  It was on par with a $70/night Best Western.

Technically it is next to a river, but it's also next to I-5 and it the middle of a stripmall town. And sure enough, the front desk and lobby are in a building that resembles a lodge.  But the rooms are in your typical 2 story motel building with outdoor hallways.  The website describes it as "relaxing" but they're going to need much better soundproofing between the rooms before they can uphold that claim.

We stayed at the lodge with a large group of people for my wedding in the summertime.  We couldn't have asked for better service!  The front desk staff were friendly and accomodating from day 1.  We took advantage of the breakfast, daily wine hour, cookies in the evening, and hot tub and pool.  The price for rooms, especially river-facing is a little high, and the rooms that do not face the river are very dark.  Still, we had a great time and would happily return in the future!

I loved our stay at the Lodge. It was clean and the staff couldn't have been friendlier, from the front desk to the staff cleaning the rooms and working the breakfast room. We arrived late and were offered cookies and milk in the lobby then went for a dip in the jacuzzi which they held open for us for an extra 15 minutes past the 10:00 closing time. The room was very clean,  the beds comfortable, and the Mexican restaurant next door was good. We will definitely stay there again when we pass through Grants Pass in the future.

We had a very nice stay.  Greeted with a roaring fire in the lobby.  Wine, cheese and crackers during happy hour.  Milk and cookies to go to bed with and a nice continental breakfast in the morning.  Room was spacious, cozy and clean.

We stayed in a two room Suite over looking the River.  The room was lovely, clean, and very large.  For off-season it was too pricey, almost $300 per night.  The pool and Jacuzzi were very nice.  They had wine and  cheese(whiz) at 4:30 and pretty good chocolate chip cookies at 7:30.  We never had the breakfast as it didn't start until 7:30 and we were on the river fishing way before that, but they gave us bagels and cream cheese for our room.  We will definitely go back and stay again.  They gave us a 15% off coupon on our next visit at any of their hotels.  We will definitely go back, but not pay the premium for the larger room next time.

Quaint hotel with very comfy beds.  Nice touch with complimentary wine and milk & cookies for the kids.  Only minor bummer is that we needed a cot as we are a family of 5.  Cot was super uncomfortable (most are) but this one you could feel all the springs.  They were were accommodating and voluntarily took that extra charge off the bill.  Excellent customer service!

We had a great stay here.  I thought the rooms were well appointed (loved the Aveda hair and skin care products).  It is very clean considering how old it is.  The views are beautiful!  It's walking distance to Taprock which is a pretty nice restaurant.  The breakfast was a huge plus.  The pool needs some updating, but it was still nice to have an outdoor pool because so many now-a-days are indoor.  I would defiantly go back and I would recommend staying there if you are in the Grants Pass area!

Hospitality Team is #1, they know you by name and treat you like family :)  Rooms are well appointed with Aveda products and nice fluffy towels.  Plenty of pillows and bedding not common for hotels.  A+

Very friendly staff and large rooms. It's always nice to have a free breakfast in the morning.  The free breakfast includes waffles, hard boiled eggs, bagels, cinnamon rolls coffee, juice, and cereals so they are not holding back.  The scenery is beautiful in the back with a view of the Rogue river so if you stay there check that out.

This is a great hotel at a pretty decent price.  We were traveling through on our way to Portland and had stayed in a big name chain hotel the night before for more money.  The Lodge was actually nicer and cheaper.  We had a room on the second floor, overlooking the pool, the river and a park.  The room was large, clean and comfortable.  There is a breakfast room in the morning as well, with options like eggs, biscuits, gravy, pastries, etc.  None of my favorites, and would have preferred something healthier, like fruit and yogurt, but it's a minor gripe.  The coffee was good tho! They also have wine, cheese and crackers in the afternoon, and cookies and milk in the evening, which is a nice touch (who doesn't love cookies?!).  But what really makes this place great is the staff.  They are friendly, accommodating and wonderfully attentive.  One of the best customer service experiences I've had.  I would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling through Grants Pass!

I've stayed here for business three times. I have not paid for the room myself, my client has. I've been treated very well by the staff who are attentive and kind. After 11 PM there's no onsite staff but you their phones are forwarded across the street to The Riverside, another of their properties.

The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. Comfortable but not exceptional.

I've stayed elsewhere in Grants Pass in rooms that would normally cost the same as my room at The Lodge. Of these properties, The Lodge is the best I've had in Grants Pass. It may be necessary to go to Medford for better.

Great place! The staff are very hospitable, the furnishings are nice and the location is good. We purchased the spa package and would certainly do it again. From wine and cheese to cookies and milk we felt spoiled.

Ok, we haven't stayed here yet but plan to in September.  But I want to point out to the owners and other hotel owners that just because people who need ADA compliant rooms they don't always want the worst room in the establishment.  I cannot use a regular bathtub because I cannot lift my legs to get in and out of a bathtub.  I really need a step in shower or in the case of Marriott, a fold down seat that allows me to transfer into the tub.  

I went to the Lodge at Riverside website and sure enough their ADA room is not facing the river, and has a tub with some sort of shower seat.  I don't want the crappiest room in the hotel.  Therefore instead of staying 2 or 3 nights on our trip north we'll only stay one night and I'll have to forego a shower.  Can't possibly stay any longer without a shower.

We also stay at Marriott Courtyard in Beaverton OR and were told that no ADA rooms are available at any of the Marriotts facing their Courtyard, they all face the parking lots.  Is there a safety reason why this is so?  Don't you think we gimpy people don't enjoy sitting outside facing the view, be it river or courtyard?

C'mon, just because we're crippled doesn't mean we don't have money to spend in nice places.  Throw in a couple superior type rooms with accessible showers, some grab bars and a VIEW!

Thanks!

Quiet ... peaceful ... great location ... and Grants Pass ain't that bad of a place when you're there for reasons such as work.  The room was one of the most cozy I have ever been in -- very warm and inviting.  If I didn't spend all of my waking time at work, I would have enjoyed spending a peaceful day overlooking the river while drinking coffee ... then wine.  I'll be back ... and when I do, I'll be right here.

I spent what was supposed to be a lovely holiday get away here, visiting my friend who lives in the area. The lobby is gorgeous, But I couldn't actually get into it with my wheelchair because they kept blocking it off with their "courtesy car" that was parked immediately in front of the only ramp area into the building.

This is one of the most clueless places I have ever stayed regarding disabled access. The disabled room Was small dark and ugly and was the only option I had. It looked like a cheap motel. It felt like a cheap motel. I was really disappointed. I've actually had better success at some of the cut rate motel chains in town and after this experience that's where I'll be staying when I visit!

Stayed here on a business trip to Grants Pass and couldn't have been more pleased. Maybe it was the wonderful Southern Oregon Spring weather, but this place just gave off a great vibe. There are only 34 rooms, and all but 2 appear to overlook the Rogue River.

Check in staff was friendly, as well as the eager staff person who pulled up in their truck and immediately jumped out and opened the gate to the rooms to help me out.

They have Wine & Cheese reception (with one free glass of wine) from 430-730pm, Milk & Cookies from 730-9p, and Continental Breakfast from 730-11am. Continental breakfast included hot & cold cereal, hard boiled eggs, bagels, cinnamon rolls, fruit, yogurt, and coffee/juices. It was definitely good as far as hotel breakfasts go. And given the small amount of rooms, I never had to fight with anyone to get my grub.

When first entering the room I was blown away. The room was extremely spacious and had a hint of Southern Oregon flair (wooden trunk at foot of the bed' cowboy-ish lampshades), yet remained sensibly done. The private balcony was incredible, as the blue skies, sun, and river were just what I needed after a long drive. True, the main road is close so there is audible traffic noise, but I chose to not let it affect me. I sent some pictures to my wife and she literally thought about piling the kids in the car and heading down for the weekend.

I feel I can tell a lot about a hotel by the room's carpet. If i feel i have to walk around in socks or sandals all the time, thats never a good sign. At the Lodge, I found the carpet to be clean, and surprisingly soft by hotel standards. That impressed me. The bathroom was the only pedestrian thing about the room. But it was a bathroom - so who really cares.

There is a little pathway under the Main Street that takes you straight to (less than 1 minute) the Taprock restaurant- a decent place for some grub and brews. Near the restaurant are some steps that take you right down near the water. I stopped here after my meal one night and got one great sunset pictures and the bridge. It was wonderful.

Upon checkout, i receives a never-expiring coupon for 25% off regular rate Sun-Thurs. We don't venture to Grants Pass often (heck, practically never), but I can promise if we do in the future, we will be staying here.

Driving into Oregon was simply amazing. The sun going down over the trees was to die for. We decided to stay here as my parents recommended it was worth every penny. When checking in the price online was different, so the extremely kind host beat the price. Using yelp I checked in and saved an extra $15 which is rad. We unloaded our luggage and got settled in as they told us to come back and get a complimentary glass on wine. I took her up on the offer and she decided to give me a bottle of Pinot on the house as she knew I was a big yelper. Now this service was beyond anything we expected and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The room.... Amazing with river view. Thumbs up you will love this place.

We stayed in the jacuzzi suite (room 200)for our 30th anniversary. Truly, one of the most comfortable and well appointed rooms we ever stayed.

Bed was comfy with nice linens, plenty of room with a living room and bedroom and a door that closed and keep out noise, accommodating me being an early riser.

The jacuzzi tub was big enough for two and the bathroom was roomy with a nice make up mirror.

The decks were large and had comfortable deck furniture. The only thing that might have made it better would have been a bar sink & countertop in the dining room area.

Staff were all very nice and accommodating.

A clean place to lay our heads. Beds were comfortable and room spacious. However these rooms are insanely overpriced. We booked online for the "internet rate" of $150 ($164 after tax). You could have paid about $200 for the same room without the discount. My husband walked in to the room and said, "Looks like an old crack motel they've remodeled a bit."  I would have to agree. The bathroom window and bath tub look very old. The carpets are stained. They've tried to do a nice job but they need some major sprucing up.

This hotel was beautiful. I stayed in a room with two queens. It had a tv, huge bathroom area with robes, refrigerator, free wifi, coffee maker, and private balcony over looking the beautiful Rogue River. The room was very clean, as it should be. It was modern with a rustic decor and nothing looked like it was deteriorating. Oh, and they also supply Aveda products, which I loved!

In the lobby they have free wine and cheese from around 4-7 ish, which was then followed by cookies and milk at night. Super cute. Then in the morning they have a deluxe breakfast spread, way better than most places have.

The staff were incredibly welcoming and sweet. They gave me a great recommendation for a restaurant called Blondies Bistro.

This appeared to be one of Grants Pass' best picks, so we booked a suite here for one night. The main lobby and exterior of the place is reminiscent of a lodge, but the interior of the rooms (even the suite), more like a motel.

The bathroom contained only a window-paned door allowing for no privacy, but a huge Jacuzzi tub, making up for the loss, accessorized with Rosemary-mint Aveda products (woo hoo!).  The mattress could have been replaced a few years ago, but the silky cotton sheets and luxurious comforter, once again, balanced out the night, creating a pillow of plushness. The air conditioning/ heating wall unit in each room were hard to ignore, yet pleasant when the heat outside was a sweltering 97 degrees.

Throughout our suite, was a continuance of woodsy, lodge- like ambience along with a stone- rock fireplace and a finished, wooden log framed mirror. We had a huge private porch overlooking the hot tub outside, along with the Rogue River and greenery across the way.

We found this place to be serene, remote-feeling and peaceful, yet as soon as you step out the front lobby, you're back in the pavement and bustling small town of Grants Pass.

If all the rooms were as cool as this accommodation's lobby, it would easily jump to a five star rating. The main lobby is adorned with elk, antlers and masculine woodsy cabin ensemble. It made us want to hang out, start a fire in the fireplace and relax on their big cozy leather couch for as long as possible. Their free happy hour for guests included red and white wines (complimentary from the owner's vineyard in San Diego), along with a wide selection of beers. They even had warm cookies out for later.

One thing I would say needs improvement is their breakfast spread. Biscuits and gravy, sausage along with a few other fatty greasy options. Lots of pastries, Belgian waffles and syrup; all fine and dandy for the masses. But no fresh fruit? Come on people!? All I saw were whole shiny, petroleum covered apples and oranges gleaming under the light. I'm not a fan of either. If you're trying to get a healthy start, don't expect it from them.

Like others have mentioned (if you've been reading), the service and staff here went above and beyond. In fact, that's what makes this lodge, all that much more better, even if it was more reminiscent of a motel. We needed all sorts of guidance when we arrived, and we received it eagerly from their friendly staff. Almost every time we walked through, we were prompted if we needed anything else... wine? beer? a cookie? anything? Simply greatness!

We recently enjoyed a stay at The Lodge at Riverside at the recommendation of my cousin who lives in Grants Pass, and were very happy with our choice. The staff, and most especially Chrystal and Katrina, were wonderful and made us feel right at home. The view of the river and the park from the second floor were good, and it is just a short walk across the bridge to the park. We would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Lodge over a weekend in December. Here is our list of pros and cons:

Pros:

* The room and hotel has recently been remodeled, it is beautiful
* They have a wine and cheese time, and a cookies and milk time in the evenings. The wine was good, the cheese spread was tasty, and the cookies were wonderful!
* The bed was comfortable
* The view of the river was good
* The staff were very friendly

Cons:

* We stayed in the suite on the first floor and whenever the upstairs room did anything involving plumbing (flushing the toilet, running the sink, using the jets on their whirlpool) it was loud in our room; especially the water running through the pipes when they flushed the toilet.
* The whirlpool jets didn't always turn on.
* Not very many plug-in outlets. There was also a power strip in dining room, between the wall and the mini fridge, hanging because the cords plugged into it were too short so the power strip couldn't lay on the ground. I thought that was quite tacky, especially for an expensive suite.
* Other guests were smoking pot in the closed hallway leading to our room, it wafted into our room.
* The buttons on the phone to reach the front office did not work.
* There is no fan in the bathroom; the humidity is causing the paint to look old and peal. A fan is also necessary when sharing a bathroom with other people, no one wants to smell a stinky bathroom.
* Breakfast was only OK, nothing special or different from any other hotel or motel, which is surprising since this hotel is more expensive. Also, breakfast is in a building across from the main hotel, so walking across the parking lot in the rain to get to breakfast.
* The parking lot was awful. It was completely full one night due to an event, so when I got back from getting dinner I had to park across the street.
* No extra amenities for the guests in suites.

Hotel staff did not offer anything to make up for issues we had. I think next time we visit we'll try out the Redwood.

My significant other and I stayed in Grants Pass at the Lodge at Riverside on Valentine's Night after driving up from Redding, California. I'd heard from my SO that the Lodge was an amazing place to stay and I just needed to see for myself instead of looking at pictures he'd taken on previous trips. We booked a room which overlooks the river. The view was so sweet and romantic. It was the perfect place to sit and drink our morning coffee. The rooms are very large and everything was quite clean. I'm in love with the lobby and the entire property altogether. We only stayed one night and checked out after a large and delicious provided breakfast. Anytime I ever come to Grants Pass, I'll be staying here. The staff was courteous and hospitable which was a pleasant surprise. They offered to talk us through local restaurants and sights which was very useful. Altogether, it was a wonderful trip that I will never forget. The only negative complaint I could possibly have would be the carpet that was pulling away from the walls in our room and the fact that the tech in the rooms (phone, alarm clock, etc) was a little outdated. But that's nitpicking. The Lodge at Riverside is a wonderful and romantic place that I cannot wait to return to.
