Room was nice and clean, quiet even tho they are go cart race tracks near by. The hot tub in the room was just what my wife and I needed. We just wanted some r&r and we got it. Thanks Mrs Maples for your kindness.

My husband and I saw the Rivergate and booked on booking.com. thinking it would be a weekend for a quiet getaway and it was a property that was American owned. I was appalled to find it surrounded by noisy racetracks and amusement park that entertained you in your room until after midnight - despite what Mrs. Maples told us upon... More

I wish there was someway to make everyone happy with life in general. Pigeon Forge, Tn is a resort town where lots of different kind of people flock here to visit and we are very happy they do enjoy East Tennessee. We know anywhere a person goes in town there is some type of entertainment or just a busy highway... More

My husband and I ventured up at the last moment. I was appalled to say the least as I didn't know we were staying at a motel. There were cobwebs with huge spiders outside of our rooms. The upkept wasn't what I thought it should have been. I will not revisit. But I wish you luck in your future endeavors.

So sorry you had a problem on the balcony. If you would have notified us at the front desk we would have taken care of it if we could have. Being outdoors over the river the dirt dobbers do fly in and out at times. They are looking to build a winter home right now be we try hard to... More

The photos and the description of this property could not be more deceiving. We arrived to discover that the property is surrounded by three go kart tracks that stay open to at least midnight as was told to us by the go kart attendant. This of course would be the reason for the sound proof rooms, the "river" that you... More

So sorry you did not enjoy your vacation. It is strange all of our reviews tell how nice the property is and how much they enjoyed the river view with a balcony as shown in our pictures and how the Pigeon Forge entertainment was not heard in our rooms. Most of your time you enjoyed your room because of the... More
