Found this room at last minute on the busiest Saturday night of the year after Christmas. Dec. 28. Girl in office was friendly and helpful. All rooms have a balcony that faces the river. Room was clean and had small fridge and microwave. Shower was nice and hit and had new insert and gear looked like new flooring as well.... More

My husband and I decided to get married at RiverGate a couple of years ago. We've been coming back ever since. Mrs. Maples was very sweet. The room was CLEAN! Can not say that enough. The fact that they even had bad reviews shows that you can't please them all. The wedding was perfect for us, also a plus it... More

We came to Pigeon Forge on a whim so didn't have reservations. Found this hotel on Trip Advisor and tried it. The room was very nice but small. Location was okay. Lots of noise from the go kart tracks adjacent to the motel.

My husband recently stayed at this motel. This place had three different names on the building. It's called the Rivergate Motel, Rivergate Inn and Rivergate Mountain Lodge. We were a little uneasy pulling up to the building at night. It is off the main strip on a side road. The building is old and located behind two go-kart racing tracks.... More

We were in Room 100 and it was very nice! The room was clean and the bed was super comfortable. The Jacuzzi was very fun! We loved how they left little samples of toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo/conditioner, and especially the small & healthy snack bars.
