“We love this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We have stayed here the last couple of times we have come to Pigeon Forge. I will not stay anyplace else. Opted for a riverside room this time and it was well worth the extra money. Staff is all very friendly, breakfast is good as is the nightly popcorn.

I stayed at the Inn with my wife and daughter during the week while shopping and enjoying a before school getaway. I have to say our whole stay and experience with the Inn was excellent. Upon calling for a reservation the great experience started, check-in was expedient, room was large, clean and comfortable. I am pleased to say the staff and cleanliness of this hotel are the highlights of this review. This hotel offers all a guest may need for a comfortable stay at a reasonable price.

We love Inn On The River!!! Awesome staff, always helpful if we need them for anything. And it's very clean. I hate a dirty hotel!! We love relaxing on the balcony, watching the creek. We stay here every trip we make to Pigeon Forge!! Keep up the good work!!

We stayed 3 nights last year and it was great. Very nice rooms, fireplace, great breakfast and popcorn each evening. I can't wait to stay there again. I think we are coming back this year and bringing our parents so they can enjoy time there.

Room Tip: we stayed on the side down by the pool. Very nice room

We absolutely loved it. The river and the ducks and geese. An Outdoor pool and an indoor pool. A hot tub in the pool area. Free breakfast and popcorn at night with free coffee and hot chocolate. We have stayed here several times. Clean...........nice..............in the middle of everything. What more could I ask for??? Maybe some discounted or free nights this fall?? lol

Room Tip: I'd go for the room by the river.

My family has stayed here a couple of times and I think that dollar for dollar, it's one of the best values you can get in the Smokies. It is an older property, but its very clean and well maintained. We had a small balcony overlooking the river.

Things I liked:

The hotel has both an indoor and outdoor pools as well as a hot tub. My seven year old granddaughter had a great time swimming In both.

Great location! It's right off the Parkway in the middle of everything.

Your room rate includes a free breakfast. I've found that you usually get what you pay for with these free hotel breakfasts, but I was pleasantly surprised at this one. It's not like eating at one of the thousand pancake houses in Pigeon Forge, but it was pretty good.

The staff was very friendly and attentive. They went out of their way to give us directions and recommend good restaurants.

The rooms are very clean, comfortable and reasonably priced.

I can't really think of any complaints and would highly recommend this hotel for families.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the river.
