“Great, but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We loved the hotel for all the reasons other reviewers did, but the mattress really needs to be replaced. King size with a body indentation in each side. To meet in the middle we joked about being on top of ole smokey.

Great location for everything in town as well as a great room! We've stayed here many times over the years and its never a disappointment ! Our creek side room with a balcony was enjoyable after an evening in town. Location, location, location!! Wonderful time in Gatlinburg!

Room Tip: I've enjoyed both The Riverhouse Motor Lodge and Riverhouse on the Park... both great stays!

We really enjoyed our stay this last weekend. We popped in on the off chance they'd have rooms available.. They did. I went with one with a woodburning fireplace (They also have gas if you don't want to deal with wood) and were very pleased with the room. It was clean, all rooms are on the river and the staff was very pleasant. It's an older hotel but very clean rooms. I expected a few bugs being right up amongst the trees, but I never saw a one in the room itself. The water pressure in the shower was great! Nice quiet spot at night. We'll be going back.

We first stayed here in the early 1980's, and we loved it! And we have loved it every time we have returned, including our most recent visit. Nice large rooms, each with a balcony over the stream, comfortable beds, clean as a pin, and old fashioned continental breakfast brought to your room. A fairly easy stroll up to "the Strip", but it is hard to tear away from just sitting on the balcony watching the stream!

Rooms are 'cozy', and the view and relaxing sound of the river right outside the door make this our favorite place to stay when visiting the area. The staff is friendly, and they have a wide variety of rooms to suit everyone - with or without fireplaces, with or without in-room hot tubs, etc. fresh made doughnuts are available and delicious each morning! Everything in Gatlinburg is within easy walking distance.

We spent last weekend (8/8-8/11) at the Riverhouse. It will become our place of choice. We had such a wonderful experience. The room was large, clean and very homey!!! The in-room breakfast was wonderful and my son was overjoyed with donuts daily. I loved spending time on the balcony and loved the sound of the running river.
