I had another nice visit to this hotel and found out that it was recently bought-out. The previous owner was wanting to sell the property for years, and a big renovation is being planned. The new owner is expected to spend a great deal of money on the property and be completed around spring-time.

We travel to Gatlinburg three times a year. We stay at various hotels within the town. This was our first stay with this hotel and by far the best yet ! The staff here are very courteous and very informed. This hotel gives you easy access to all activities surrounding Gatlinburg. I would recommend this hotel to friends and relatives... More

Motel was older one but was fine. We had a good stay with family. We stayed in a suite and had 10 of us. Everything went well. The kids really enjoyed the salt water pool. The breakfast was fine. The motel is close to Downtown Gatlinburg.

The person I spoke with on the phone wasnt the most friendly person ive ever spoke with. I was advised I would be... More

I will start by saying I didn't stay here. The reason for my review is that the gentleman who was working the front desk on Labor Day Weekend was wonderful. For whatever reason the hotel we were going to stay at lost our reservation and after driving nearly 6 hours (with 3 kids) we were without a hotel on Labor... More

On River Rd, near the northeastern end of Gatlinburg, across the street from Little Pigeon River (no river view). Only a short walk to the main street and close to several restaurants and the entrance to the Park, but out of the worst traffic and noise, and there can be a lot! As previously reported on TripAdvisor, and confirmed by... More

This was our 2nd time staying here, was in a different room this year and loved it, just the right size for the two of us, everything was clean and neat. Enjoyed the items they had for breakfast. We eat light I'm the morning because we eat larger meals during the day, so if you're wanting a big breakfast you... More

My husband and I don't live far from Gatlinburg, but we like to stay in town for special occasions (birthdays, etc), like a little mini-vacation. We typically stay at another hotel, but they were booked for this weekend, so we looked at other options. Through TripAdvisor, I found River Edge. They had a king bed, non-smoking room with a heart... More
