We try to visit the area as often as possible. Will stay here from now on. Best price in town. The young man at check in was excellent. The room was on the back side facing the river, which was beautiful and quiet. The room was spotless each day. The breakfast was the best ever and always hot, which is... More

This was a great hotel to stay at! Checking in was fast and easy with friendly employees working behind the counter. The breakfast was great and so was the hotel location. Not to mention the beautiful view when walking alongside the river! The only downside about my visit was that the room was located near the the washers/dryers that the... More

We loved this hotel. We requested a room near the pool and loved it. We walked out of the room and the pool was right in front of us. The room was nice and clean and had a lot of amenities. The location was great and there was a cute little area out back to feed the ducks on the... More

Dear Jking1212, We are pleased to learn you loved your poolside room. Being able to step outside of your room and dive into the pool is a fantastic perk of reserving poolside. It's great to learn you loved our new river walk also. It has become a guest favorite. Everyone enjoys feeding our ducks and relaxing by the fire pit.... More

My family has stayed at many different hotels in town over the years. This was the best value for the amenities, cleanliness and convenience. It is hard to find an American operated hotel that is up to date, and clean. We will stay here for future visits. I highly recommend it.

We just booked this the night before we headed to Pigeon Forge for the weekend and it is very nice. We didn't use it but has an indoor pool. Breakfast each morning and I believe is nicer than most Econo Lodges.

We checked it around 2AM. The attendant knew we we're getting in late but we initially told him around 12AM and when we got there he said he was starting to worry about us. He gave us a Riverside (which was requested) on the bottom floor a map around the complex where our room would be and then offered us... More

I have stayed in a lot of hotels and am fairly picky, even though I am a budget traveler. I read the reviews and look at the pictures online. Econolodge exceeded my expectations in every way. Better than some Clarions I have stayed in, for half the price. Beautiful facility, very well maintained. Pretty lobby, excellent breakfast area and I... More

I booked our room off of Hotels.Com and did it based on the reviews and pics of the hotel. I was under the assumption all the rooms looked over the Pool but now Im glad ours didn't.
