Went to gatlinburg for our 30 th anniversary on a last minute deal. We were able to get a queen jacuzzi room on the 8th floor overlooking the indoor/outdoor pool. The staff and service was great and the hotel was clean and in a great location to everything.

Room Tip: The river side faces the river and town with mountain view. The hotel is back up to a hill side with...

We drove down through the blueridge mtns from boston and couldn't wait to get in to gatlinburg, was NOT disapointed!!! We had a room on the 7th floor faced the mtns, (wow what a view) and the town. Our room was very clean and the entire staff were extremely helpful!! This hotel has it's own parking lot where ppl just can't walk by your car on the way to town. We were in walking distance to just about everything you needed and there is plenty to do here. The hotel rates were reasonable, towels and bedding comfortable and waking up to ducks in the river every am wasn't tough to take either!!! Would stay here again definately!!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room on a high up floor facing the river, well worth it.

We booked our King mountain view room through Expedia at $60/night. We arrived in Gatlinburg several hours before check-in (4 pm) and were allowed to park in the hotel parking garage. The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful; however we requested a room on a high floor away from any elevators, ice machines, or vending areas, and our the room we were given wad a handicapped room on a low floor right across from the ice/vending area and elevators. Also our "mountain view" room looked over the lower floor's roof and the back bank. When we got to our room it was late so we didn't request to change rooms. The room itself was in good condition, roomy, clean, and comfortable. There was a mini-fridge, microwave, and 2-cup coffee maker in the room. The hotel does offer free wi- fi, an also a continental breakfast, but we did not eat breakfast there. The hotel is located parallel to the main road that runs through the middle of Gatlinburg and is within a short walk of many restaurants and attractions. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: The creek/river view rooms also overlook the road and downtown. The mountain view rooms on the back...

We just got back from our trip to Gatlinburg where we stayed in the Edgewater hotel. It was super nice and clean and comfortable. Our room was a jacuzi room with a fireplace and it was very romantic. Didn't like that maintanence guy had to come turn the fireplace on for us, but it was ok. The pool jacuzis didnt have the jets going and we couldnt figure out how to turn them on. Probably could have called and gotten them turned on. The breakfast was really good, not like the usual continental hotel breakfast. Love this place and will try to stay there again when we go back to Gatlinburg.

Great roomy faciities, comfortable rooms, responsive staff, thoughtful touches - the Edgewater Hotel facilitated our business retreat and helped make it an excellent experience overall. I appreciated the covered on-site parking, and being able to experience a clear mountain stream just outside added the perfect refreshing "breath of fresh air".

We had a retreat there last week and it was a great experience. The rooms were very clean, the staff were very accommodating. The hotel is in an excellent location with plenty of parking, easy access in and out of garage.
