We arrived and was greeted by the desk clerk in a very friendly and professional manner. Her name was Valerie. We had several questions about the Pigeon Forge area and the hotel and she was very helpful. We enjoyed our stay and will be returning to this particular hotel. Everything was nice and clean and well stocked. The breakfast they... More

We really enjoyed our stay of 4 days despite the rain and terrible traffic caused by an old car show. The room was very clean, the employees were friendly and helpful and the location was close to all the events that interested us. The beds were excellent and the noise level was low. The hotel has an indoor and outdoor... More

We were very impressed with this motel and all the staff with whom we came in contact. We were planning to spend a day at Dollywood and wanted to find a place located nearby, yet not in the midst of a lot of noise and busy-ness and this location was perfect. Our room overlooked a small river and we enjoyed... More

My family and I spent spring break 2015 here. We initially booked the Music Road Inn, but someone recommended the Inn on the River for the same luxury at a cheaper rate. Their website offered a package deal that included tickets to Wonder Works, which was an offer we couldn't refuse. Check in was quick and easy. The front desk... More

My sister and I recently stayed at The Inn on the river with four children during spring break. We actually had reserved rooms at The Hampton but luckily called the day before just to confirm that the rooms were adjoining and of course they couldn't be guaranteed. While talking to a gentleman at the desk at The Hampton he recommended... More

They are remodeling this place. Hard to improve on perfection but they are. Nice people that work there. Clean rooms, very nice size. Love the beds, and the white sheets, and comforters. Nice big bathroom with a marble counter top. Love the free breakfast from 6am to 10am every day. Lots of food to choose from. While you eat you... More

I booked this after reading good reviews and it does not disappoint. Well maintained clean rooms with some serious amenities. Like a Keurig coffee maker, Bed and Bath shampoo and more towels than I've ever seen in a hotel room. All beautifully folded into designs. I got a river view room and relaxed on the balcony with my coffee to... More
