Riverview Inn Policies

As guests of our newly-renovated 1949/1950s inn with access to the Colonial Beach Municipal Pier and boardwalk, your stay is very important to us. Each room has been created with care and has its own theme. No two rooms are exactly the same. Many of the rooms’ items have been purchased from local merchants. If there is an item of interest you would like to purchase, please ask. Our staff has been trained to provide our guests with the utmost care. We want to ensure that your stay is an enjoyable experience. The policies created below are to ensure a seamless stay for all guests of the inn.
