The place was very clean! The bathroom had mirrors on two side. which was nice when getting ready to go out. Was within walking distance from everything. When you set out on the balcony it doesn't feel like you are in town.

Riverhouse is located just off the parkway in downtown Gatlinburg yet is very quiet and secluded. Each room has a private balcony overlooking a gorgeous mointain stream. All the rooms are enormous but be sure to have a fireplace room when in season. Walking distance to the whole town and you don't have to worry about parking. A true hidden... More

I love River House Motor Lodge. I have been staying here since the 70's. Beautiful and cozy views from the balcony. Close to town, very short walk to restaurants and attractions. Love the doughnuts and juice brought to the room in the am. Look forward to going again.

This is a wonderful Place to stay. I was here 20 years ago and was glad to see after all that time and all of the changes to Gatlinburg, the Riverhouse was still here. People were very friendly Room was great. We had a balcony overlooking the river, Whirlpool tub, and fireplace in our room. The breakfast was better than... More

We have stayed several places in town and this is always our favorite. The in room continental breakfast is awesome. Our kids feed the animals on the porch. It's always super clean. We have been fortunate enough to stay at the Ritz Carlton in several countries and we love The Riverhouse. Don't miss it and you will not be disappointed.

We stayed at the Riverhouse over the Fourth of July and were impressed with the spacious, quiet and CLEAN accommodations. It was also, probably, the best hotel bed we have ever had! The "room service" continental breakfast was nice. No jockeying for a seat or waiting in line. My husband is a big fan of the homemade donuts. The in-room... More

We came down to Gatlinburg for a last min vacation before school starts. After reading reviews on this place we decided to give it a shot. Location of the hotel was perfect. Short nice walk to the road with everything on it. Check in was short and easy from friendly front desk guy. Our room was right across from pool... More

Best part was the balcony overlooking the creek. We enjoyed though it was a bit on the cool side for May. It was quiet being a bit off the main street, but still close enough to walk to the hustle and bustle.
