In later years the Hotel became a boarding house for the men and women who built the Delta levees and pioneered the area's thriving agricultural industry. Over time, the Ryde has experienced many incarnations and owners including the Lon Chaney, Jr. family. At one point the name was changed to the Grand Island Inn. During the 1980's it was even a rock'n'roll mecca!
The Hotel has resumed its original name and undergone a major renovation, maintaining the character of the original design while incorporating contemporary amenities, such as
Jacuzzi tubs, with glorious river views. What has been achieved is an ambiance that is both unique and casually elegant.
