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.

I live not far from Gatlinburg and have been staying there quite often the past couple of months. This was our first stay at Riverhouse and the reviews were accurate. The room was big and the outside porch with the creek was wonderful. Having breakfast delivered to your room was another great perk. I will be staying here as many... More

This was our first visit to Gatlinburg so I asked friends who came here often (for over 40 years) and they strongly recommended this lodge. It is very nice, very well kept, lodge with lots of character tucked back off the main tourist drags but not far away. Our room was actually a small suite with a fireplace and balcony... More

I just wanted to say my Husband, myself and our three daughters ages 12, 8 and 1 & 1/2 came to Gatlinburg for a last minute vacation. We checked many of the hotels in the area for availability and also looked at their rooms. We were not impressed. Our final call was to the Riverhouse Motor Lodge. We pulled up... More

Stayed here a little while back. The room was more spacious than a normal hotel room with a stone fireplace, wood paneling, table with 2 chairs in front of a large picture window looking out towards the river,& 2 older LR chairs with end table. Even though it is dated, it was extremely clean. All rooms have a river view... More

Unlike a normal motel, this one has not only one door/window that faces the parking lot, but a big window and a balcony facing the river at the back of the room. For me, this is a huge advantage! In this motel all rooms have a river view. The room is a bit dark because of trees hiding the sun.... More
