“Riverhouse at the Park never let's us down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Our family takes a trip every year to Smoky Mountains and long ago we found this nice hotel 1 block off the beaten path...wonderful sitting , right out of the parking lot you go right and walk right on to the trail that is a nice walk by the creek...you can go clear up to the Visitor Center if you want..catch a trolley right on the corner or sit on a baloney over the blabbing brook...we book here every year and also now come back in December...and if we're lucky enough in the spring too...I can't say enough about this hotel.Over the years everyone we come in contact with are so nice and helpful...check in is easy and quick and check out is the same.. nice clean place ..Good size pool on the second floor...for the money you couldn't ask for a nicer , cleaner .,friendlier place to stay in Gatlinburg...I hope to be returning for years to come..

Room Tip: Rooms 203 and 204 are just a few steps from the pool ...rooms 208 and 209 are close to the elevators...

Not our first stay here (more like our 5th). Ground floor, creek front is cave-like and cozy w/ a fireplace. Pool is private and ideal for young families. Nice jaccuzzi tubs in bathroom. Super-locale to walk downtown or to a quick nature hike at the foot of the GSMNP. Morning coffee and toast delivered to your door.

Room Tip: Ground floor has closest and best view to watch the creek.

This is our first stay at Riverhouse at the Park. Super clean. The carpet was very clean and look new. The bathroom tile was very clean (no mold or mildew). The water pressure was the best anywhere we have stayed (25+ hotels and condos). The maid service was top notch. Our room was always very clean when we returned at night. We ordered a pot of coffee, donuts, and orange juice that was brought to our room free of charge. We would hang up the phone after ordering our breakfast and they would literally be knocking on our door in less than 2 minutes. Parking was good and close to the strip. Also had a nice trail (sugarlands) to walk on about 2miles. The trail was about 200 ft from front of motel. The pool was very clean. The river was great too, being right above it.....we loved to hear the sound of the water flowing (big roaring sound) Hotel staff was top notch. Older motel, but very nice and homey

Room Tip: room 310 was 3rd floor on the corner by the river and the road. If we stay again I will chose room 3...

We have stayed at River House many times and always enjoy our stay. It is located away from all the hustle but is still walking distance to downtown. It isn't like the Ritz but is nice and always clean. We always get their homemade donuts for breakfast which by the way are free with coffee and juice. Toast is also available. We have never been dissatisfied with our stay. The staff is always so nice and helpful.

We love this hotel! It was so comfy, like being in your grandma's downstairs! Its not "high tech" or "fancy-schmancy", but it is clean and comfortable! And the donuts in the morning...out of this world! It is in a great location to walk to the parkway, but far enough away that it is quiet. We will definitely stay again!

We chose this property since it was so close to the entrance of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We did not walk the trail that actually takes you to the park visitor center, but it looked like it would be a nice hike! It was easy to park, enter and exit from the hotel. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is dated, but we expected that from looking at photos posted on Tripadvisor. Our room was clean and very large, but seemed dark. The shower had great water pressure! There were enough shops and restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. We were glad to avoid driving though town everyday. We were out of our room before the doughnuts were ready in the morning. There were always extra doughnuts in the lobby later in the day!

Room Tip: Our room was on the end and overlooked the river and falls. Our room was also closest to the street...

We have stayed here many times over the past 30+ years and keep returning. The rooms are over sized and the location is superb if you are a national park lover. Right on the Park boundary. You can even Take a 2 mile Riverside trail right into the park Just a few steps from the front door.
The rooms could use some updating but they are kept clean. Many have balconies over the river.
Had a laugh reading the reviewer who thinks it is next door to a sewage plant. It is a WATER TREATMENT PLANT NOT SEWAGE. The water intage is from the Little Pigeon as it emerges from the national park.
