Very impressed for the price.

Extremely clean and comfortable.
Can"t think of anything you would need that they don"t
Have or offer!

Although we normally stay in cabin - if you
Need to stay over in a hotel try River Bend.
You will be glad you did!

We are repeat customers here and have never had a complaint. We checked in three nights ago, in town for the Rod Run. This morning, we received a call from the desk stating that they were replacing carpet on our floor "early, real early tomorrow morning" & requested that we change rooms. I asked how early they'd be installing the carpet & the lady said "very early, but we will move you to a very nice room". The room we had been in wasn't spotless but it was acceptable for the price. The bathroom in the new room was disgusting. We decided we were leaving & going to another hotel. My husband told the manager that we should've been told upon check in that our stay would be interrupted. His response was that the person that checked us in was supposed to tell us. He then stated that the carpet wasn't being installed until after 2 pm. This was after we had already packed all our belongings & left the room we had been in. We are now at Maples motor inn & it's wonderful. We will stay here on future trips to the area.

Thank you being our repeat customers & we extremely apologize for the trouble that was caused to you on your last stay.
We do acknowledge that our Maintenance man & the Head-Housekeeper did a mistake & that led to all the troubles that were caused to you, we are sincerely sorry for that & we really would like to have you stay with us again like you have always done in the past. The room which we moved you to was yet to be checked by the Head-Housekeeper, but we gave you the keys in a little hurry which was our mistake too, but it was just so that we can get another room for you soon.
The bathroom in the room you were moved had coffee spilled in the toilet, & was just left to flush, but like i said we gave you the keys before the room was checked.
About the Carpet installing, the carpet installing people told us that they would come work on
Monday morning as we can't do it on the busy week of car show, but they changed their schedule & decided to come later in afternoon, but we do apologize that the front desk person who checked you in did not mentioned it to you.
we accept & apologize the mistakes that we made & we do want you to come back & stay with us.
Thank You

This was a great place to stay. Clean room and the staff were super friendly! The indoor pool is small but it was clean and my daughter had a great time. The location is very convenient to everything. Overall, I was very pleased. I would definitely recommend reserving a room through the hotel website as I have found the rate to be the cheapest and very easy. I will definitely be staying at this hotel on my next visit to Pigeon Forge. Thanks!

Great place to stay, we looked at the reviews for this Motel, and almost didn't book it. Booked it anyway and don't regret it. Check in was simple and fast, pleasent desk worker. Our room was very nice and very clean, our bed was comfortable. We had a balcony overlooking the creek, enjoyed watching the ducks and calming movement of the creek. Looking at going back to the Pigeon Forge area in June and will probably stay here again.

We ended up getting in a night earlier than what our reservation was for. The staff was very accommodating and we were able to get one of the last available rooms. The next morning we thought that we were going to have to pack up all our stuff and return for our reserved room later but the manager had already taken care of making sure a room was ready for us that morning and on the same floor. We were able put all our luggage in our reserved room before heading out to Dollywood. Both rooms that I stayed in were very clean. The room we stayed in the first night had a balcony which does cost a little more. Our reservation was for three nights so we stayed a total of four nights. One morning we put the 'do not disturb' on the door and slept in and was not disturbed. We left just after 11 am and when we returned, the beds were made and room had been clean. I did not think they would do that since we left so late. The pool is somewhat small but it was clean and my daughter still had a great time. The location is very convenient to everything. Overall I was very pleased. I would definitely recommend reserving a room through the hotel website as I have found the rate to be the cheapest. Also, the earlier you reserve, the better (cheaper).
