This hotel is downtown and you can walk to everything! The room was very spacious and comfortable.. The staff also very friendly. The doughnuts are amazing and the coffee hot and delicious.. All the rooms seem to have a stream for a view and a small balcony to relax on. Would highly recommend!!!

My father introduced me to this hotel. We stay frequently when traveling to Gatlinburg. It is a little old school but that is what we love about it. It is right next to the river so you can open the door and listen to the creek run. It is everything as I remember as a kid going to Gatlinburg as... More

This is an older hotel, but that is just part of it's charm. It is not fancy but it is very clean and the rooms are spacious. The property is located within walking distance to all of the major attractions and restaurants. We had a private balcony overlooking the river which was great. Breakfast of delicious homemade doughnuts brought to... More

This is our favorite place to stay. Although it isn't the "fanciest" place, the rooms are clean and the staff is great. Each room has a private balcony over the river. We always sleep with the balcony door open (in the summer) so we can sleep to the sounds of the water running below. It is centrally located so you... More

If you can get past the 80's decor, this is a great place to stay. It is convenient to the strip and is always immaculate. The pool is heated and you are served a continental breakfast every morning. My parents have been staying here for over 35 years and have converted my family and I into loyal patrons.

We have been staying at the Riverhouse for more than 35 years. The owners and management work hard to keep th motel in excellent condition. The rooms are a nice size and everything is always clean and spotless. The continental breakfast options are much more limited than when we first began staying here but the homemade donuts are still great.

Love the Riverhouse Motor Lodge!! This is our 2nd stay here. We can walk to anywhere we want to go in Gatlinburg. It is a little dated but very clean. Love, love, love the location! Love sitting on the balcony and watching and hearing the river.

We have stayed at the Riverhouse Motor Lodge many times. We were there recently, May 9 - 13, and enjoyed their hospitality once again. The people are fantastic, the rooms are awesomely rustic, they are right in the middle of everything but feels like you are out on a mountainside all alone! I would recommend this hotel for anyone who... More

This was our 4th visit to this property in Gatlinburg. It's been a good 15 years since we've been here and one never knows how time treats a place, but the Riverhouse Motor Lodge remains a great deal right in the middle of all the action. Because of its quiet location on River Road, a curtain of trees and a... More
