First, the room was WARM. That mattered because it was freezing outside and they weren't expecting us. We left a hotel in Cherokee because it was TERRIBLE and drove back to Pigeon Forge that night. We sleep on a king bed and were trying to find a hotel with a room with one. Now, the décor was terribly outdated. In... More

Stayed only one night. Got two rooms. Carpet pulling loose at door, wallpaper coming off walls, bathroom cold, water never got hot, and ran heater on high at highest therm setting and room stayed cool all night. For $155 for two rooms would not do it again. Not many vacancies is why we stayed here.

I am very happy that I ignored those reviews. my room was very clean and well kept. i had a ground floor room with a large Jacuzzi tub and rocking chairs on the back porch. there is a... More

I went down for a few days of needed vacation. This hotel does NOT have a coffee maker, microwave or coffee at the office. The office isn't even open in the morning. Our refrigerator was broke, so they brought us one that worked. When I was leaving I asked why we had to request towels and the lady replied "we... More

We used to stay at this hotel every single year for years on end (I know I'm a little late). Every year we slowly watched the hotel detiorate and absolutely 0 effort to fix it. On our last vacation our non smoking room reeked of smoke bugs were everywhere, cobwebs, dust, it was awful. We called the front desk and... More

The carpet was dirty. My grandchildren went bare footed and their feet got filty. There were roaches in the bathroom in the sink and the bath tub. They were on the carpet next to the door. Both my husband and I seen the bugs. Outside the chairs were dirty. Spiders and spider webs on both. The room smelled. The air... More

We only stayed one night unplanned due to a road closure. I was worried because the outside looked a little run down but the room was spotless. No hair dryer or iron that I saw but we never use those anyway. I would stay again. I like the set up of the room, the bathroom acted as a partition between... More

A friend recommended River Lodge South as an affordable place to stay to help us budget more for activities for our children. When we pulled up into the driveway, I was wondering what we had gotten ourselves into. The inside was so much better than I expected from the looks of the outside. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Yes,... More
