My wife and I stayed here during the National Quartet Convention last week. I booked using an online service, after checking various reviews.The hotel is in a good location, and is clean and well maintained. That's the positive. The breakfast area reminded me of a military "chow hall" with signs posted everywhere. One sign really bothered me. It stated something... More

We used to stay here all the time and it was nice. The last time we stayed which was in April, there was a huge mix up with the room rate, and we were overcharged. We recently stayed again, but only because it was a last minute trip and there were very few hotel rooms available. This last stay was... More

The hotel itself was a good place stay! The breakfast wasn't very good at all and it's supposed to go from 7 to 930 but by 915 everything was out away! The night staff were great but day time staff was horrible and rude! Overall okay place to stay would probably stay again!

We stayed while going to the country tonight theater. It was close enough to walk without fighting the crazy traffic. If you stay get the back side with balcony it over looks a stream and a old house you would never know was there. the local coons, and other critters will come out the woods wanting the treats people throw...

We always stay in Gatlinburg, but on The Spring and Fall Rod Runs we stay in Pigeon Forge. We picked River Bend Inn because of the nice reviews on tripadvisor. We couldn't ask for a nicer room. Clean, bed was very comfortable, we enjoyed the balcony every morning with our coffee and at the end of the evening we would... More
