For the price this place was fabulous! Breakfast was yummy and we loved eating out on the patio. My family loved the pool, especially the kiddy pool for my young children. The back area is great with grills and picnic tables. The river was beautiful and we all loved feeding get the ducks. The room was clean and comfortable. The... More

We had stayed overnight at this hotel on a previous visit to Pigeon Forge. This time we chose this hotel for a longer stay. The service was exceptional, from check in to housekeeping to breakfast to check out. We very much enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. Our room faced the strip, but we did not even notice the...

I visit the Smokies quite often and have been trying to stay at different places just to get a feel for the place. I have stayed at some high end places, but also several choice privileges hotels because they are usually relatively inexpensive and clean. This trip I chose the Econo Lodge Riverside. I am glad I did. This was... More

This Econo Lodge is an excellent bargain with great prices, spacious rooms and a perfect location. Sitting next to the Pigeon River gives guests access to a nice walking trail along the river, wildlife viewing and easy walks to restaurants and attractions.

Maybe our problem began with using a booking site and not being able to request a room. Looking at all of the pictures of this hotel, there's none to suggest the room that we were put in, room 231. There is a tiny section that resembles an alley with rooms facing each other. So with no backside window our only... More

This place is a dream come true in Pigeon Forge. From check-in to check-out, I was a very happy camper. The reservation was perfect, and we were assigned a high-floor, river-view room, as requested. I traveled with another female friend, and the room was large enough for us both. The free breakfast area was crowded at times, but the food... More

This is a basic two star motel with above average room cleanliness, bed comfort, breakfast buffet, and grounds. I arrived late with five others and we were just looking for a bed to lay our heads on after a long day. The fact that the parking lot was full was a pretty good indication that the Econo Lodge Riverside is... More
