I'd last stayed at this property in 1998, and the only noticeable change was the upgrade of the TV from a box to a flat screen. The room came with a fireplace, large balcony overlooking a creek and a jaccuzi tub in the bathroom. The main area of the room was large and had a nice table for playing cards and a loveseat.
Once very nice feature was a panel of switches between the two beds that controlled all of the lights. The bedding and fixtures could use some updating but the rate was very reasonable. Mid-week off season was only $58 + tax!
While the property is at the very edge of Gatlinburg, its convenient to the Ober Gatlinburg ski left, a large outdoor store and several restaurants. Immediately next to the motel is a nice 2 mile path that leads to Sugarlands Visitor Center.
In the mornings, you can call an extension and order coffee & juice and either delectable homemade donuts or toast delivered to your room, all included in the rate for the room.

Booked this hotel off the internet so didn't quite know what to expect. We were delighted with this place although it looks a bit outdated from the street our room felt like we were in a log cabin. Our room was large the balcony overlooked the river and best of all there was a fireplace and fire (gas) in the room . Breakfast is delivered to your room which means you don't have to get dressed to go down to breakfast. It was lovely to sit on the balcony and enjoy the river. Being down the end of the main shopping area there was less congestion but you were still within walking distance of the attractions.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the river costs extra but well worth it.

If we don't get a cabin, we always stay here! Huge rooms, right on the river & lovely fireplaces, but the best part is the delivered right to your door fresh donuts, fresh squeezed OJ & coffee every morning! Not the fanciest hotel, but clean, large, well appointed rooms & great customer service keep us coming back year after year. We really do love this place!

This may look like an outdated hotel, but we were very pleased when we saw the room. Very clean, staff was super nice. Quiet location. Not in the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk if you wanted. Homemade donuts (delicious!) coffee, juice and toast delivered to your room every morning! Will definately stay here again.

We have driven by this hotel many times but never stopped. We felt it was dated. What a surprise, it was a large room wonderfully clean. Yes some of the features were old but it was awesome. Can not truly do it Justice a must stay. They deliver homemade doughnuts for breakfast, that is right, they bring a Cont. breakfast to your room!

You may look at the pictures and think, "Whoa! This is not what I was thinking." Actually, it is super clean and nice. It is outdated but it was perfect for 4 adults and a baby. The rooms are so much larger than any other hotel room. It is very close to the nicer restaurants. We loved staying here and we definitely will again!

Room Tip: The only down fall is there is no fitness center.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Riverhouse by the Park. The location is great- it's extremely close to the park and away from the main street in Gatlinburg (but close enough to walk to restaurants/attractions if you want). The motel is very clean but could use some updating as others have stated. Rooms are large and we enjoyed the balcony overlooking the stream. There's free wifi and free breakfast (donuts, toast, coffee, tea, juice). The pool looked nice too. I would probably stay here again. Despite the dated decor, it was one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed in.
