My family and I came to enjoy the "newer" part of Pigeon Forge for our vacation. The Econolodge Riverside was perfect for what we were looking for! Indoor pool for the kids, riverfront view, walking distance to everything, (but do watch traffic) and the price was very affordable. Could use a vent fan in the bathroom and maybe more rubber...

Available seating at the buffet area was great, but the slowness of the buffet line casued my wife and I to go to another restaurant up the street. Possibly if we had gotten there around 7:30 AM-8:00 AM, the exoerience might have been better. No complaints about the hotel condition, rate paid, or the cleanliness of the room. All were... More

We were very pleased with our stay. Room was clean, good size, mini fridge and microwave. Nothing fancy but for the price great. Toiletries are soap and shampoo, but once again for the savings it is worth it. Breakfast was good, eggs, sausage , cereal , fruit juice , and coffee. Biscuits were not so good. We had a river...

We recently stayed three nights at the Pigeon Forge EconoLodge. The location of the hotel was great and within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, and activities along the main Parkway. The back of the hotel has a newly completed walkway along the river where you can feed the ducks and geese or just sit and relax. We had booked a... More
