Stayed here recently, while in town on business. The room was very adequate for the price, and fit our needs. Obviously if you're staying at an Econo Lodge or Rodeway Inn you don't expect the ritz, but this room was one of the nicer econo lodge's I've stayed in. The staff was very helpful and even let us check-in early,... More

My error...I thought I had booked the Econo Lodge RIVERSIDE...I did not, so it was quite a letdown to leave the ELRiverside lobby to come to the ELParkway. This is one of those places that does the bare minimum to keep up to code and as a result of its prime location (sitting right on the Parkway in PF), it... More

Quiet. Bed was comfortable. Maintenance needed, luggage rack needed to be reinstalled, bath mirror dark- hard to shave, light over mirror inadequate, grouting needed in tub area. Quiet at night in spite of attractions next door. However, worst point was tile floor needed good scrubbing and mopping. Carpet was FILTHY! No stains, just dirty, so not evident till you started...

This was our second stay here. We spent the whole week. The staff is great. Nice pool with slide. Rooms are good. Right in the middle of everything. Will stay here on our next visit. Arcades, go carts, putt putt and restaurants right next door.

The rooms were clean however the pool was disgusting. We had ants and a small selection of channels. The room was kept clean and the beds were comfy. I would only recommend this place only if you are in dire straits or just want a bed to sleep in.

There is some pros and cons. It is close to everything. Great service. Great breakfast. Friendly service. The wi-if is not secured. When I was walking I looked in the other rooms and the cleaning people were texting and the blankets on the ground they were putting back on the bed. There was one tiny garbage. Pool was always packed... More

If you do not have high expectations and are looking for a cheap place to rest your head, look no further. By staying at the Econo Lodge, you get what you pay for: terrible customer service, minimally clean room, and terrible breakfast. Customer Service: The front desk clerks were not friendly, did not make eye contact, and continued their conversation... More

We have stayed twice at this Econolodge in the same exact room. If you need a cheap place to stay in the Pigeon Forge area, this is a nice place. It is close to Dollywood, all of the Pigeon Forge attractions and a short drive north of Gatlinburg. Comfortable beds. Great pillows. Clean.

Stayed here back in October and was somewhat disappointed. I mean, the room was clean and safe but minimally clean at best. The service at the front desk was cordial but not overly friendly or helpful. I mean, there was nothing that would not allow me to recommend to others but I just didn't like the place. There are better... More
