“Beautiful view of the river, but the rooms are 'tired' at best”
Reviewed November 5, 2016

The staff was courteous and friendly, but the room we had (4th floor) was more than a disappointment. As soon as we walked off the elevator, the stains and gum on the hallway carpet gave us a hint of what we would find in the room. The carpeting looked like it had been installed with carelessness - 30-40 'humps' and folds, the desk and chair were worn out, and the lack of available electric outlets left us hunting for a place to recharge our phones. The bed was nice, but the pillows were only the bouncy foam type that left my neck stiff and sore the next day. When I told the desk clerk at checkout about the obvious need for renovation, he seemed surprised at the floor and room conditions.

Our reservations were originally for 4 days, but we checked out of the Riverview after the first night and moved over to the Hampton Inn (rated #1 on TripAdvisor). What a contrast! I was blown away by the quality of the accommodations at the Hampton, and all for $25 more per night.

I wanted to try the Riverview, but I regret a wasted night there.

Room Tip: Stay at another hotel (my suggestion - the Hampton)

I felt like I got what I expected...this hotel advertises itself as a nice mid-range property with a great downtown location. Other hotels in the area were out a little farther closer to more retail, but the three of us couples were in town to see a show at the Roxy, so this was perfect for our needs. It was a quick walk to the theatre and a delicious dinner at Edward's. We also took advantage of the beautiful fall day to use the Riverwalk right outside the door, which highlights the Cumberland River. I will admit that the outside of the hotel gave me a little pause when we pulled up, but the lobby and our room were a pleasantly updated surprise. The staff was helpful, and there was free breakfast & a pool, which we didn't take advantage of. Our room was on the executive level (and I would recommend calling and requesting that because I understand they are in the middle of renovations and these rooms are finished.) As per other reviewers, the windows in our room needed to be replaced because they were "foggy", but our view was of the parking lot anyway, so no big deal for our short stay. They "roll up the streets" downtown early, even on a weekend, so if you are looking for nightlife, you might consider a different location. Overall, very happy with our choice for this trip.

Room Tip: Request an Executive Level (remodeled) Room, and a river view.

Have stayed there twice in the past year. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly--especially Bruce he is a charmer! The property is well maintained, well decorated (especially for the holidays), rooms are clean and updated. Complimentary breakfast is good. We were there during Halloween Festivities and the hotel handled the parking situation very well. We will be back!

The staff made check-in super easy. Everybody went out of the way to meet every request. Our room on the 7th floor was far nicer than we were expecting. Fantastic view of the river and walkover from the hotel to the river walk.

Room Tip: 7th floor, a little more but worth it.

I am a big Monkees fan, so we visited Clarksville for that reason. But the hotel stay was fantastic and the view of the Cumberland River spectacular. We got lost and the new gentleman at the desk stayed on the phone with me until I got to the hotel. (Take note, the name of the highway to this hotel changes many times, just stay on it and keep driving).

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the river.
