River Bend Inn is a decent motel. It was very clean but kind of out dated. There was a fridge and a microwave, but no coffee maker. There is coffee ready 24 hours in the lobby but it wasn't very good. I thought the beds were kind of lumpy and hard but was very surprised I didn't wake up with... More

I booked a double queen room with balcony online through the hotel's website for Memorial Day weekend. Check-in was a smooth and easy process. We found our room to be very clean and everything was in working order. No, there was not a breathtaking view from the balcony, but I wasnt expecting one anyway. There IS a walkway down to... More

This had to be the nastiest most unprofessional hotel I have ever stayed in !!! We come in from driving almost 3 hours to this hotel , we had a balcony room they put us on second floor with a view of a ugly nasty molded house and not to mention the beds were so hard I would rather sleep... More

This is the 3rd time staying here and will probably make it our choice in PF from now on. We made the mistake of staying at a more expensive place and weren't as happy. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. Everything was clean and neat. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast bar has improved. They have taken the... More

I booked our room on the morning of our stay using Travago. This was the least expensive hotel in Pigeon Forge on a Friday night (approximate $60 for the one evening we stayed). It is located on the North end of Parkway (the main strip), near the celebrity wax museum that has King Kong on the roof, and directly next... More

We booked two rooms and stayed here for one night. The hotel exceeded my expectations. It was very clean. We had a first floor room and the ceilings were probably 12 feet high, giving the illusion of a much larger room. It is difficult to find a pet-free, smoke-free facility in Pigeon Forge at a reasonable price, and River Bend... More

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
