Stayed here as part of a package deal while attending a conference and did not select this Inn. The location was convenient, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were updated. Beyond that the hotel was very 80's looking. Strong chlorine smell and weirdly located pool was a bad first impression. The room decor was old and tired looking. Our... More

We wanted some place decent and clean without costing us an arm and a leg. After finding this on TripAdvisor, we decided the price was right and it offered everything we needed. However, after reading some of the reviews, I toyed with the idea of booking somewhere else. After a few days of mulling this over, we just kept the... More

We decided on a last minute trip. We wanted a low budget vacation and found river bend inn at $34.95 a night plus $5 additional for our daughter. We have been to the smokies at least once a year for 30years staying at various places. This was a nice place with comfortable beds. The outside of the property was beautiful.... More

We headed to Pigeon Forge with this location in mind. We had picked up a coupon book from a service rest stop when we left Nashville. This hotel looked like a super good deal. Reviews on it were mostly good except it appears they have had some recent customer service issues. When we entered to lobby and asked about the... More

Booked our stay at the River Bend Inn for three nights (Thurs - Sunday). We stayed in room 412 and were happy with the room. We decided to stay an extra night and the staff accommodated us in the same room at a lower rate. It was the size of an average hotel room - not huge, but big enough... More

We have stayed at River bend before and always have a great time. Within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. My sons favorite attraction, The Track, is close by. We love the indoor pool and the breakfast bar is alright. We will be back, especially when we can get a ground floor room.

The hotel and rooms were beautiful and well maintained. The breakfast area was kept well stocked. Wifi was great. The three exercise machines were manual but available. Kids enjoyed the small indoor pool. Elevator is a bit slow but functional. Front desk staff not overly friendly. Keep in mind that breakfast ends at EXACTLY 9:30. We missed it the first... More

We checked in, walked in our room, and immediately saw little black bugs all over the room. They were on the curtains and on the walls. The entire hall had an offensive odor as well. We did return to the desk, and they gave us a refund.

We arrived to check in without a reservation, I asked to look at a room first, the owner was very rude and just said " licence" . I gave it to him and he slapped me down two keys. One did not work but the other one let me in the room, It was okay clean, so I decided to... More
