We picked the Edgewater based on reviews and rate. The hotel is nice, not fancy. The king room was good for us. Bed is higher than most. Did have fireplace and does overlook the River. Bathroom is small- door almost hits toilet to open or close. The location is very convenient for walking around Gatlinburg. The parking garage is on the lower floors and hotel on upper floors. Nice to park in garage instead of parking lot. Overall good facility for a short visit to Gatlinburg.

Edgewater Hotel in Gatlinburg is a great choice for an individual, couple or family. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, ample parking. My only issue is that the bathroom was a bit small and the parking space a little cramped for my Ford 'Expedition. Pricing was very competitive and we had daily maid service in our room in spite of the virus.

This is an older hotel, but it was clean and comfy. We were SO pleased with the location and were happy to leave our car in the hotel's parking garage and never use it until the day we went home. The breakfast was meh, but I appreciate that in the time of Covid they even served hot breakfast as opposed to "bearclaw in a bag" as I call it. The pool was SO neat, although they boast a heated pool and a small slide for kids, neither of those statements were true. The pool was FREEZING and the slide was gone. The hot tubs were great, though. All in all if we return to Gatlinburg I think we would definitely stay here again, the vibe was amazing and the staff were SUPER friendly!

We absolutely love The Edgewater. The staff is always super friendly and our room was very clean. This is our 2nd time visiting this hotel. The rooms with the river view are the best. The location is perfect and walking distance to everything. This will always be our go to place when we come to visit!!
