Riverview Inn

Check Availability
  • riverview inn motel

    The Riverview Inn is a fun retro-themed mid-century motel. Built in the 1950s, there are about 20 tastefully decorated rooms and no two are exactly alike. They each have fun themes like The Mermaid Room, for instance, and utilize the handiwork of local artists like handpainted beach scenes on the dressers.

    At night, there are teal and red lights in the courtyard that give off a soft glow and match the building's paint colors.

    The ribbon cutting ceremony was so much fun! It was great to be able to hear about how the team worked on remodeling this gem and to see those folks get some solid recognition for their efforts.

    The motel was brought back to the colors it was originally painted when newly constructed, the teal and red colors. My friend Gus was on the second floor balcony, painting away as I walked by one day. The building was pale yellow and navy blue prior to the remodel, as shown in this old photo:

    It used to be called the Westmoreland Motel with 24 rooms and a myna bird in a cage in the office window. Prior to that, a different building stood on the site, the Hotel DeAtley. It was a wooden hotel with a balcony that spanned the second floor on the front side. Both are pictured in local author Sherryl Woods' book,

    Fast forward to about five years ago, Bob and Kelly Vaughn purchased the property and got to work getting it all spruced up. It turned out wonderfully and is in a perfect location, just 1/2 a block to the municipal pier and boardwalk. You can walk to just about anywhere in town from here easily. Restaurants, shops and the beach are all right there.

    With glowing reviews on both Google and Yelp, you're sure to have a comfortable and convenient stay here.
