Just completed another stay at Riverstone. This makes the 4th year we have stayed here. It is a throw back vintage hotel with clean room and friendly staff. We really enjoyed sitting around the campfire and talking and singing with other guests. Being a pet friendly hotel is a bonus. Looking forward to going back soon.

My stay was disappointing after reading the reviews. Pros: easy, friendly check-in, mini-fridge, in-room coffee maker, microwave, plenty of towels, comfortable bed, quiet and good food beside Lodge. Cons: walk around pool to get to room was difficult with rolling luggage on the stone drive, slight musty smell in room, a few flies and several spiders in the room (left... More

This was my first stay at Riverstone. The room was very clean and comfortable. My only concern was an adjoining room with a door that had no lock on my side (although the desk clerk assured me it was locked and not accessible from the other side). The price was very reasonable.

Ok, this is definitely one of those "hole in the wall" places. Very small place with very good homestyle cooking. The young waitress was a delight and very on top of refills, condiments, etc. this place is the kind of place you will funny being dressed up, so come as you are. We drove out of our way to come...

We have been visiting Riverstone Lodge for years now. The owners and staff treat you like family. The lodge is very peaceful, clean and a quiet place to visit. Nightly campfires to roast hot dogs or marshmallows or just to visit with others at the lodge. A 10% discount given at their restaurant when staying at the lodge, just show... More

My room was dirty, and had bugs. The door to the adjoining room did not have a lock on it!! Proprietor said that they could not enter my room and not to worry about it. I moved a dresser in front of the door. I wish I had stayed at the Best Western.

Riverstone Lodge is the type of place you should be looking for when you go to the Smokies. Rustic outside, nice big lean room with all the amenities inside. Great staff. Convenient to the river and local sites.

We decided to give this place a shot and we were pleased we did. They're friendly. Pet friendly. Affordable. You can roast your own weenies and marshmallows at the evening campfire. The restaurant next door is delicious at breakfast. The sausage ws my favorite part! Will stay again.
