    Guest Reviews of river watch

    4.86 out of 5 stars based on 22 user reviews.

    Mid-week get away for 4 - very good experience and fair price

    In need of a change of scenery and relaxation, two (over 50) couples (so no kids) rented this very nice property which was spacious, clean, comfortable, quiet and convenient for day trips. Worth repeating: clean and comfortable (chairs and beds)! Plenty of closet space, coat hooks conveniently located right near the door, luggage racks - the small things the make a big difference. It was obvious that there was thought behind making guests feel welcome and at home. Unit would easily work well for a family.Communications prior to and during out stay were timely and effective. Unit was as described and met our expectations.As stated in description, furnishings were new and decor was pleasant and seating was plentiful. Kitchen was stocked with dishes/cookware etc. We walked to few attractions in Manistee and drove to several nearby attractions. Garage parking was a plus.To the owners: Suggestions to earn an 'excellent' rating: 1) replace the towels (disappointing in comparison to all the obvious care in recent updates)and provide wash cloths. 2) Provide a bit more of the small conveniences, i.e. coffee, spices, condiments. 3) Provide a quick reference to what is available in the kitchen and where; for example: I didn't find the cutting board until late the 2nd day as it was in a drawer under the dish towels.

    Beautiful accommodations

    Review by Gary M.
    The condo is spacious and very well furnished. Everything was very clean and in wonderful condition. Having a space in the garage was especially nice. During our stay, a large community college building was being constructed across the way, producing noise from early morning to dinner time. Hopefully that work will wrap up soon. Otherwise, this was a great place to stay. Easy walk to restaurants and the beach. Quick access to major roads in the area. Highly recommend this property if you are looking for a well appointed place to stay in Manistee

    on the water

    My wife and I enjoyed our time at this location. The facilities were just as they looked and were very clean and comfortable. Were fortunate to see a freighter go by when we were in the condo. If you like downtown locations this is for you. Easy to walk around and check out places in town

    Great Place To Stay

    Review by Susan O.
    What a great condo. Great location, right on the river, and next to downtown. This like new condo was sparkling clean and very well maintained. My family stayed here for a family wedding/reunion. Even with 4 adults and 2 children (a 3 year old and a 10 month old), it felt roomy. My grandson was especially thrilled to watch the bridge go up and down, and watch a freighter go up the river.We would stay here again. Just a beautiful home and a great location.

    Beautiful river stay

    Review by Laurie A.
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place was beautiful and spotless when we arrived. We loved that it was so close to river street and especially enjoyed watching river activity from the balcony. I would not hesitate to recommend this spot to anyone I know. We are hoping to make our stay an annual thing.

    Wonderful rental!

    Review by Julie S.
    We had a wonderful time staying at River Watch. The rental is beautiful inside and the view off of the balcony is just as great. It was easy to check in and check out. We appreciated having all of the amenities of home and being able to park in the garage was nice. We found that Manistee was a great location for exploring the northwestern side of Michigan. If we ever come back that way we would definitely rent again.

    Return to Manistee

    Review by Annette M.
    This was about as good as could be expected. I knew the town, so the only unknown was the rental. The property was spotless and well appointed. Furnishings were comfortable, linens were clean. The APP for the stay gave every bit of information needed for the stay and the self-check-in was seamless. The place was more than what we had hoped for.

    Awesome Family Vacation!

    Review by Katherine H.
    What a lovely condo. We enjoyed the view of the river and watching the bridge go up and down for the boat traffic. It was also an added bonus to be right in town for morning coffee, restaurants, shopping and the daily run on the river walk.

    MANISTEE RIVERFRONT

    The check-in procedures by the time we flew to TVC and drove to Manistee late in the evening was very frustrating. Code didn't work for ne unit and the 2nd unit we rented lock box didn't have the key. Bad start to our family trip for my mother's funeral. Expensive for the market and no maid service.

    River Watch July 4

    Review by JAMES W.
    Unfortunately only my wife was able to be there because I had to attend to a family medical emergency. She LOVED the condo and the location. Two complaints: You sent building entry code "0-01262." There is no hyphen on the pad, she never did figure it out. Also directions were to park in west spots by brewery. She did, and jerk who owns unit #12 knocked on door and hollered at her for parking in "his" spot, upsetting her a lot. I hope you tell him off for me!

    Hi James - We are sorry about the issues with the keypad and the parking situation. I'm sorry you had to deal with this, we are working on solutions with the building management to avoid these types of occurrences in the future.

    Great time with family

    We were in town for 4 days (3 nights) for a baseball tournament. The condo was more than we expected. Nicely decorated, clean, and all the things we would need to make it our 3 night home away from home. Added bonus was having it right downtown across the river. We were able to walk downtown, were within walking distance to the baseball fields and the beach. The instructions for getting in the condo was just as described to us.

    Manistee by the river

    Fantastic rental and location! Lots to do in Manistee...beach, kayak, fishing, boating, M-22. Walk to town for shopping, dining, live music. Great staff at Unsalted and especially appreciated the efforts of Madelyn Fitzsimmons, who gave us great tips on what to do in the area and was just super kind and responsive.

    Beautiful Location

    Review by Patrick B.
    We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this location was. Very convenient to downtown Manistee. Sitting on the balcony watching the bridge raise for large boats was wonderful. Our only negatives are that parking was limited and the trash cans were always full. But both of these will be resolved once the building rehab is completed next month. I can't recommend this location or Unsalted Vacations enough.
