Ok. We stayed here last weekend for the fall break. We were on the second floor. The room was wonderful!!! We typically stay at the Bearskin Lodge and have for years. We will stay here from now on. The rooms were very spacious and CLEAN!! The decor of the room is perfectly "smoky mountains" with paneling and lighted pictures on... More

This is a medium price motel, but to me is worth it. Have stayed there the last 3 years in Gatlinburg. The rooms are big (the ones with the fireplace) and cleaned every day with clean towels. I have always gotten a good night sleep. Nice private porch over looking what they call a river but to me it is... More

This hotel is awesome very clean and well maintained. I love the interior of the room it gives you the feel of a cabin and has a great fireplace. The view from the balcony of the river is amazing. But the best part of all is the homemade doughnuts delivered to your door

We stayed at the Riverhouse Motor Lodge in early October and had an excellent experience. The room was spotless. The balcony was very relaxing. We had a view of the stream, and this time, we were up on the upper level. The location was convenient to town. This stay was better than our first stay.

For the 30+ years that I've been visiting Gatlinburg, I've always seen the Riverhouse motor lodge when walking or driving down River Rd. and have always thought it would be a nice place to stay with their balconies overlooking the river. I called and booked a room. Their website doesn't allow for online booking and you can't complete a reservation... More

We have been going to Gatlinburg and the surrounding areas for about 25 yearrs. A friend told us about The Riverhouse about 18 years ago and we have been staying there ever since. The place is so close to downtown but you get the feel of being out in the woods. You are only a block off the main street... More

Once again we stayed at Riverhouse Motor Lodge. And it was a great time indeed. The rooms is the same one we have stayed in our previous two trips to the hotel and we enjoyed it so much. It is an older property but do not let that fool you. This place is well kept, extremely clean and great get... More

Pulled up and enquired for a room for 1 night, chap on counter was friendly and offered us a good rate. Room was to a good standard and had a fridge and microwave. Would stay here again if in the area.

This was our first visit to Gatlinburg and we selected the perfect place to stay. As they say: "location..location..location". The Riverhouse Motor Lodge is located on a mountain stream and tucked away along the trees to where you feel like you are in a secluded mountain lodge It also is only a short walk (a block) from the heart of...

Last year, on our third trip to Gatlinburg, we "inspected" several hotels that had good ratings, to choose one for this years visit. We chose the Riverhouse Motor Lodge, and it is exactly what we were looking for. It is very clean, the room layout is perfect, the staff is friendly, and the location can't be beat! We walk across...
