4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We enjoyed our stay here. It's not fancy, but it's adequate, clean and very close to everything in Gatlinburg. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to do. And, they were very friendly. We found it to be a great deal.

Nice size room. clean, with a private balcony and fireplace. King size bed was comfortable but lumpy pillows. We had a small fridge, microwave, & coffee pot. Did not sample the continental breakfast. The motel could use some updates, paint, etc but overall great for the price & location. Friendly staff. We would stay here again.

My family of five stayed two nights over New Year's eve. We had a two bedroom and it was very large with a nice wrap around baloncy. The hotel is older but clean. The staff were friendly and the hotel is in a great location. The only thing I did not care for is there is only one TV in... More

Just spent 4 nights here and the location was very convenient. The hotel was older and so lacked some of the ammenities of newer hotels and some of the comforts. Stayed in the large suite and while it worked well for 8 people, it could have used a 2nd bathroom, another TV in one of the bedrooms or TV in... More

I have traveled many places (Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, Harrisburg, PA, Las Vegas, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Tunica, MS; Louisville, KY; Gatlinburg, Alabama) and have stayed in some of the "best" hotels (Caesars Palace) and some of the worst (a cheap hotel in Nashville). I have to say that River Edge Motor Lodge in Gatlinburg fits square in the middle of the... More

WE stayed here for two nights this past weekend. THe hotel is old but was in decent shape. It could use some improvements. Some channels on our TV echoed( it was an older tv, the big box kind). The free breakfast was cereal, bagels and do it yourself oatmeal packets from Walmart. I would say on cleanliness on a scale... More

This motel was older, very clean and the staff was very nice. We came into town early and since it was the off season, was able to get our rooms. It was quiet but close enough to get in the mainstream of Gatlinburg. We walked everywhere with no problems. We had a baby in our party so it was nice... More

This is a older hotel so don't expect five stars.The rooms are clean, beds comfortable, gas fire place and an easy walk to the strip. Also walking distance to our two favorite restaurants The Peddler, Best Italian. Would go back again.

I come to Gatlinburg multiple times a year and always stay at River Edge. The location is great and the value can't be beat. Clean rooms and a friendly staff make all of my visits enjoyable. I'll be coming back again.
