Stayed for 8 days in July 2016. Have stayed here multiple times in the past including our honeymoon 16 years ago. Have never had a bad stay. Rooms are large and always clean. Love the shower heads! Feels like a water fall. They make donuts each morning and bring them to your room, all included with room price. Also like... More

I hesitate to say, but this is our favorite place to stay. It may be dated, but so what...my house is dated. It's solid. I like the quiet, peaceful location. It's close to downtown, an easy walk to everywhere, but across the river, which provides white noise to make everything quiet. Been staying here for years.

I'm a Marriott guy. I like the consistency in product offerings and that provides a good basis for comparison in hotel experience. The Marriott product in Gatlinburg had a water slide at the pool and that didn't sound all that quiet or relaxing. Based on positive reviews, we started the reservation process. I say "process" because the hotel does not... More

We always stay here when in town. We love the location, the view, and the amazing home made doughnuts. All of the staff is super friendly and helpful. John at the front desk is amazing! We look forward to our next stay here!

Call it rustic or call it dated - this is still a very comfortable. We stayed in room 312. It was spacious and clean. Sitting on the balcony at 5 a.m. is both torture and pleasure as they make their home made doughnuts just below in room 212 and the aroma wafts upward. Amenities include parking, pool, and location-location-location. It... More

On numerous trips to the Smokies, we have tried all the chain hotels and a few indies in Gatlinburg. The Riverhouse Motor Lodge will be our choice forever now. Huge Room, shaded balcony overlooking a wonderful flowing stream, large counter space in the bathroom, park in front of your door and the prices are good. Don't confuse this with the... More

We have been staying at Riverhouse for many years. We opt for a two queen bed with fireplace. The room sizes are generous with room for two club chairs and a table with two chairs in addition to the beds. Each room has a balcony overlooking the Little Pigeon River. The bathrooms are very clean and modern which are accessed... More

This was the third of three "riverside" motels I stayed at on my road trip this year. I think the River's Edge Motel in Cherokee was the best of the three; but this was the best of the two in Gatlinburg. And I'd stay here again. Let me begin by saying the "river" is more like a creek; but, unless... More

This hotel takes you back to dark quiet rooms of days gone by. After a hot day this is perfect over the river relaxation. We have stayed there many times with the exact same review. Older travelers will love it. Very convienient to everything.

Large rooms. Some with fireplaces. Fresh hot donuts delivered to your room every morning along with coffee. Very convenient yet a block off the main drag which helps with traffic noise. Balcony overlooking the river makes it very peaceful and relaxing. This is now one of our top 3 places to stay when in town.
