Majority of our family vacation to the mountains we stay at Econo Lodge Riverside. It is in a great location and not to mention along Riverside. My kids love feeding the ducks on the river, it is very peaceful here. The rooms the pool and the staff are an amazing.

We stayed here for three nights. We have no complaints. Nice clean room and everything worked as it should. Breakfast was good, they had a nice variety to choose from. Very friendly staff. It's in a great location. Would definitely stay here again if I came back to this area.

We were going to stay there but after looking at one of the rooms facing the creek but it had a funny smell as did the front lobby. We decided it wasn't worth the $80+ for a drab and not to clean looking room. I'm not sure how these motels get such high ratings.

Clean room, comfortable beds, pool looked nice but we didn't get to use it due to our schedule. Our room faced the Parkway but I didn't notice any noise. Staff was very nice. Conveniently located. Lots of breakfast options. Wifi was a little slow. Would stay again!

We chose this hotel for the location. It is not far from Dollywood and close to a lot of restaurants and activities. We rode the motorcycle so we wanted to be walking distance in case we decided to walk and not ride. It was very clean. The breakfast was good and the indoor pool was awesome.

This was a nice hotel as far as location. The staff was friendly but I didn't like that they were eating while checking in guests. The room was clean, it faced the back of the hotel which had a river. There were picnic tables to eat at, but many ducks and geese in that area. You really had to watch... More

I was in the hotel business for 8 years and I am pretty picky about my hotels- I highly recommend this property. Upon check-in: the lobby was beautiful, the staff was friendly, room rate was understandable, the location was right around *everything*. Our room was fresh-smelling, the bed linens were immaculate (yes, I pull the blankets down and check out... More

For us finding things to do and places to go are difficult. My husband is a Veteran with PTSD. I was worried that it was going to be loud, crowded or that the parking would be difficult. BOY was I wrong! We checked in quickly. We got a first floor room on the riverside. We were able to park (... More

We have stayed here a few times and it's always a great experience. We recommend it to anyone. In door swimming pool. Great location. Small stream runs behind it. Everything was clean and neat in the room and the grounds.
