“Great Find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

I stayed here two nights with my mother. The hotel looks just like the pictures- no smoke in mirrors. It appears to be new, or at least newly renovated. The lobby is decorated nicely and is very clean. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was fine- not my favorite. If you want a feast you'll need to go elsewhere. The room was clean with a fridge, microwave and plenty of storage. The beds were comfy. I don't have any complaints and will stay here again!

Also-the rooms were advertised for 59.99/night but I found a coupon in a hotel book for 49.99. They honored it.

Price was great, indoor pool and kiddie pool was also very good. This has got to be the nicest Econo Lodge on the planet. Everything was first class from the time we checked in until we checked out. We were very pleased with everything about this hotel and we will defentily stay here again and will recommend to everyone visiting Pigeon Forge.

We normally stay in cabins when we go to Pigeon Forge, but lately we've been staying in hotels since we don't stay more than a couple of nights. We recently went on a short trip and stayed at the Econo Lodge Riverside. I've never stayed at an Econo Lodge because the name always made me think of a cheap hotel. Don't be fooled by the name, GIVE THIS PLACE A SHOT! The location of this hotel is great. It is RIGHT beside the Christmas Place. Very close to many great restaurants, and a trolley stop is right out front. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a King Size, river view room. The room was a little on the smaller side, but it was still suitable for me, my pregnant wife and our 2 year old. The bed was VERY comfortable. The rooms appeared to either be very new, or recently remodeled. It was clean and comfortable. Also, the parking lot had plently of space, was clean and well lit. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: The river view was the cheapest option, but it was very suitable for my family.

I've stayed at this hotel several times always a good visit. rooms are very clean and very close to the Christmas store (my wife's favorite stop Pigeon Forge). A very good location for shopping etc. There's also a very nice indoor pool for the kid's or grandkids in my case.

Room Tip: don't stay in the room next to maintance shop---ask for something a little quieter lol

After a recent disastrous stay at another Econolodge, my husband was very negative when I made reservations here. Within 30 seconds of entering the room, he said, "Wow, I could definitely stay here again". The room was clean with lots of storage space. The hotel was in a very convenient location. Breakfast was above average. Very happy with our choice.
