We visited Pigeon Forge last weekend and had a wonderful stay at The Econo Lodge Riverside. We have stayed there before and the return stay was delightful. Three other families joined us and they were impressed with the facility and service. I highly recommend this motel if you visit Pigeon Forge. Clean rooms and a great breakfast that really gets...

We stayed for one night on a trip through the Smokies. We were pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of our first floor room facing the river. The room was rather small but fully equipped. The breakfast was very nice and fully equipped with a pretty area in the court yard for outside eating as well as inside. It was... More

We stayed her two nights during the Pigeon Forge Rod Run. The hotel is in the parkway at the northern end near light 2/2a. We ended up in a handicap accessible room due to the there being sold out. So this room may have been a little larger. Good points: comfy bed, best water pressure of any hotel I have... More

This was an excellent choice for our stay in Pigeon Forge. Friendly staff and a clean room with all the usual amenities. The price was very reasonable – my husband thought I was paying for one night when I was actually paying for two! I’ve never seen a more efficient breakfast staff. Although the breakfast room was packed, 5 ladies... More

The Econo Lodge Riverside is in a prime location on the Parkway. The rooms are dated and there are a number of minor issues that needed to be addressed, but the price is right. Some were and some were not on a To Do List that would be taken care of during their replacement upgrade period. The problems as we... More

Our first room (161) was hot. The air con wasn't blowing properly so we asked to change. This was a slight problem. Maintenance were called who said it was fine. It obviously wasn't as the girl in reception stated they needed to change the air con units. They appeared to struggle to find us another room however we did eventually... More

We stayed at a very busy time of the year, Labor day weekend. Our stay was very good. The creek with lots of ducks behind the hotel was neat. This hotel is in a good location, just off the Parkway. The breakfast served was good.

My family was very happy with our stay here. The rooms are small, but very nice and clean. Our only compaint about the room was the air conditioner unit was very loud. The back of the hotel by the creekside is awesome! You can walk up & down the creek on a sidewalk and there is a lit sitting area... More

We only stayed a couple of nights. Breakfast wasn't bad. Pool in courtyard looked cool. We got back too late to try it out. Room was pretty decent. We walked across parking lot to river and fed ducks. My only complaint/concern was there was no exercise facility or access to one.
