Business brought me to the Pigeon Forge area. I had a very nice, comfortable room with a beautiful view of The Little Pigeon River complete with ducks and squirrels! The mountains in the background were nice, too! All of the staff were excellent, especially Angelia and Michael, in housekeeping. I'm just sorry I didn't get everyone's name as they were all friendly and efficient, especially the girls in the breakfast area as the food was tasty and plentiful - not picked over, even when it was nearing closing time, as you'll find at many hotels! I will definitely stay here if I'm in the area, again. Stay on the river side for peaceful and relaxing views. The river provided activities for all ages as I saw children and adults feeding ducks and fishing in the river! If I come for pleasure would love to bring my dogs, but as of now, they are not allowed, only service animals.

Room Tip: Stay on the river side for the wonderful view of The Little Pigeon River, the ducks, and the squirre...

Very nice clean rooms. The Inn is close to everything in Pigeon Forge. It also is next to the Christmas Store. The staff are friendly and will help you with anything you may need. They have free popcorn very night in the lobby. Nice meal when you wake up. Parking is very easy.

Room Tip: I call ahead and do NOT go on line. They keep your passed request on file so they know what you want...

This American Owned and American Ran Resort/Hotel is clean, first class, friendly/accommodating Staff with a Marriott type hot breakfast that is included in the room rate not to mention great pool/spa; nightly popcorn; river stroll area to relax and walk across the parking lot to The Incredible Christmas Store/Fudge/Ice Cream fun. Better than being in Gatlinburg!

Room Tip: This is a quite area anywhere in the hotel as you have the river on the side and nothing behind you...

We normally stay at Marriott hotels due to their point system; however, we decided to try The Inn on the River and we were not disappointed! The location is great - you can walk to all sorts of shops and restaurants! The cleanliness of the hotel was awesome and believe me, I examine everything very closely. We do have a few suggestions that might make it just a little better in the future - provide at least 4 pillows per bed, cover the exposed pipes in the bathroom with a shelf or cabinet door, and add a lamp on the second bedside table in room 121. It was really nice seeing a lot of employees during the day time hours always straightening or sweeping, that means you are being proactive in keeping this hotel at the top! We will definitely be back in the future!

We stayed at The Inn on the River because of a discount my wife received for being a Tennessee teacher. The discount came at just the right time because I needed to be in town for a few days on business. We chose not to spend the money for a balcony, although a second, third, or fourth floor balcony would have been nice. We were pleasantly surprised to see an open Bible on the desk as we entered the room, and there was a wonderful welcome note from the owners. The room was well appointed, but it was a bit small. However, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the pillows were incredible. Even though our room was near the Parkway, it was very quiet at night. The Inn was within easy walking distance to a number of restaurants and several shops--namely The Christmas Place, which is one of my wife's favorite Pigeon Forge stops. The breakfast offered many options and was delicious. There was fresh popcorn nightly in a spacious lobby. My wife had two favorites about this inn--she was able to spend some quality time reading in a lounge chair overlooking the river, and the inn has two heated pools, one indoor and one outdoor.

Room Tip: If possible, choose a balcony room on a floor other than the ground floor.
