Reviewed October 17, 2011

My family and I recently stayed at the Inn on the River and had a great stay. We had 3 rooms on the river side. (Well worth the price difference). My daughter loved feeding the ducks. The hotel is right in a heart of pigeon forge, with many activities close by. The rooms were all clean and comfortable and all of the staff was very friendly. The inn is very quiet and the balcony overlooked the peaceful river.

Breakfast was very good, but it does get very crowded in the mornings, especially between 8 and 9. I would recommend going earlier or later to avoid the crowds, especially during busy times. My parents were there as a 50th anniversary gift and I know that they enjoyed Pigeon Forge and the accomodations at the hotel. Be sure to ask for the AARP or other rates that you may qualify for, as this will save a lot of money.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room overlooking the river for a really good view.

My mother recommended this cozy Inn with a view of the river from your balcony. We went on a shopping trip at the outlet mall and had to re-schedule several times due to her health issues and the staff was very accomodating. They gave us rooms on the first floor together and did their best to make our stay really nice. When we locked ourselves out of the room they couldn't have been nicer fixing us up. Breakfast was wonderful - lots of good food to eat. I hightly recommend this place because it is really nice and has a fantastic location and the staff is top notch!!

Room Tip: floors 1,2,3, have the best view of the river.

My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights and we were very pleased with everything about the motel. It is convenient to lots of great restaurants. The beds were so comfortable. Breakfast bar also good and price very reasonable.

Just got back from a business trip with my husband. Stayed one night at this hotel to see if we would like it for future trips. It was awesome! My three year old loved walking by the river and feeding the ducks, birds and squirrels. She also had a blast at the pools and hot tub and she thought the lobby was a special treat, because there was a fire, checker board tables and popcorn at night. My husband also pointed out that the free breakfast at hotels are usually not that great, but this hotel had great food and lots and lots of choices. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly. My husband was on a job site while I was packing up and checking out with my three year old. William, who works there and was very busy at the time, went out of his way to come over and help me with my cart, which saved me time and the hassle of wresstling with the cart and a toddler! I am sure all the Mom's out there can appreciate this small gesture. We can't wait to visit again! Thanks Inn On The River!

Room Tip: Staying on the 1st floor overlooking the river is the best, because you can sit in your room and see...

Our family of 5 stayed at this hotel on a recent road trip. It is a nice hotel in a convenient location, if you're looking at being close to activities on the parkway. The lobby was very inviting, with a nice fireplace and couches to lounge. The breakfast was excellent, offering a wide range of hot and cold items.They have both an indoor and outdoor pool, both quite large, as well as a hot tub. The kids thoroughly enjoyed swimming.

The room and bathroom were nicely decorated. We had chosen one overlooking the creek in the back, and the view was quite lovely. The space in the bathroom has been maximized, with a beautiful free-standing corner sink. The toiletries were very nice quality; definitely a nice touch. The beds and bedding were quite comfortable, with my only complaint being that the sheets were too small and came untucked in the middle of the night. The room was also a bit on the small side; we were barely able to fit a rollaway bed in there.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the stream have a very nice view.

We are extremely pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you took the time to share with us! Next time you are in the area, make sure you ask about our mini-suites; they have two queen beds and a sitting area with a sleeper sofa. Plenty of room for you and yours. ;)

We stayed for the first times at the Inn on the River in Pigeon Forge in August 2011. Our stay was 5 nights, and we enjoyed every minute of our time at the Inn and, of course, the beautiful and entertaining area nearby. The rooms very good size and very comfortable. In particular, the beds were definitely better that just about any other hotel. Our room had a jacuzzi, fireplace, and balcony overlooking the river, which made for a peaceful, relaxing environment.
The staff was excellent, from the room attendants, to the front desk, to the complimentary and complete breakfast area, and those around the rest of the facility, such as the outdoor and indoor pools. The price was very reasonable for all that you were getting. A special thanks to Chuck, AJ, and John for the assistance in handling reservations, getting us settled in our room, and helping us discover the amenities of the area. Besides these, all the employees we encountered were always friendly and helpful

Room Tip: Check out all the options. The rooms with river views and balconies are especially nice.
