We was well pleased with our stay. I was a little worried when my mother in law told us to stay there. Now I am really glad we did. The room was very clean and staff super nice. We was amazed at how quite it was even though it was right on main drag. We plan on making them our... More

Their ad for a fireplace and jacuzzi seemed a likely setting for some needed rest and relaxation. The staff was courteous and their office displays an award for 2014 from Trip Advisor. We were a bit disappointed that the fireplace wasn't wood-burning but was gas( I figure due to Insurance cost). The room had drapes and bedspread that appeared outdated.... More

What kind of motel do you look for in Pigeon Forge, TN when you are traveling with Donna Douglas, aka Elly May Clampett? A place that is clean, reasonably priced, close to everything (especially good vitals!), and a staff that appreciates your business and makes you feel at home. We found exactly that at Riverside Motor Lodge. Jill, Brandon and... More
