This room will take you back to when you were a kid vacationing with your parents. Room was nice, big and clean. Sink in the bathroom area and outside the bathroom, which is nice when you have people trying to get ready at the same time. Balcony was an added bonus. The pool and kiddie pool were not open when we were there, so can not vouch for that. We only used their breakfast once, standard continental breakfast but they did have Krispy Kreme donuts- YUM!

Pros:The hotel has a great location. They offer a very basic breakfast. Cons: The internet does not work. Included in the price of the room, but useless. They have Plastic under the bed sheets.

The staff was very nice, room was good for the price. The air conditioning cover was left off but the service desk fixed the issue immediately. The front desk was helpful with things to do in the area. I recommend asking them for fun things to do.

It was all good, the front desk lady was very nice, and cheerful....price was not bad, the location was good - walking probably 1 block to walk to parkway strip, less than that to eat at Bennett's BBQ, big daddy's pizza and Texas Roadhouse. The rooms were big, and roomy and it was quiet, balcony overlooked the pool. We didn't do the continental breakfast ...........We will stay again Our stay was Jun 10-12 2016

My boyfriend and I stayed there last week for 6 nights. The staff was wonderful and the stay was pleasant. We had a room with a jacuzzi and the only drawback was the area in which the toilet sat. It was a little cubby hole with no room on either side. Other than that, everything else was fine. Plain, simple rooms. Nothing fancy but it was clean and air conditioned which is all I needed since I was barely there.

We found that this hotel had a 2 bedroom suite with a full kitchen and stayed here for significant savings over renting a mountain cottage, and we're glad we did... Staff was all very friendly, not just southern hospitality friendly. They must be the owner & operator, they made you feel like a guest. Beds were comfortable, linens were clean/not worn out, bathroom/kitchen were clean. Pool is a saltwater pool! Very clean and relaxing, we spent significant time in it every day. However, there i...

It was a nice clean room and the desk was very helpful. It was close and could catch the trolley. It was very handicapped accessible and so was the trolley. Hotel and town was fantastic. Book your room early as a lot of times they are full. There is a river right across the street where locals were fishing.

Hotel is older, but was clean and very basic. Located at the far south end of town which is convenient when you want to drive into the mountains. Parking can be rough when the hotel is sold out. Loved having a sink/vanity outside of the bathroom. Very limited breakfast choices. Very small TV in room (if that is important to you)

If you're not picky and are looking for a budget friendly room, this motel is a good choice. Pros - excellent location (walking distance to all of main gatlinburg strip), spacious room, extra vanity and sink outside bathroom, free parking (1 car per room), friendly staff, balcony Cons - limited breakfast choices (only "cold" options - bagel, muffin, cereal, banana, donut, toast, oatmeal packets), low quality shampoo and no conditioner (bring your own!!)

I will start by saying I didn't stay here. The reason for my review is that the gentleman who was working the front desk on Labor Day Weekend was wonderful. For whatever reason the hotel we were going to stay at lost our reservation and after driving nearly 6 hours (with 3 kids) we were without a hotel on Labor Day weekend. We stopped here asking if they had any vacancy, and of course being a busy weekend they were completely booked. After explaining what happened, the front desk clerk was v... Read more

I was going to come down to the GSMNP for a few days of hiking. I booked 3 days with this hotel at a special rate thru tripadvisor.com. But I had to cancel due to personal illness. The person I spoke with on the phone wasnt the most friendly person ive ever spoke with. I was advised I would be charged 15 percent of the final bil which even with tax came out to 264 dollars.

We travel to Gatlinburg three times a year. We stay at various hotels within the town. This was our first stay with this hotel and by far the best yet ! The staff here are very courteous and very informed. This hotel gives you easy access to all activities surrounding Gatlinburg. I would recommend this hotel to friends and relatives and the cost was great too.

I had another nice visit to this hotel and found out that it was recently bought-out. The previous owner was wanting to sell the property for years, and a big renovation is being planned. The new owner is expected to spend a great deal of money on the property and be completed around spring-time.

My husband and I stayed at rivers edge for our first visit to gatlinburg this past week. We purposely booked an inexpensive hotel knowing we wouldn't be spending much time in the room. I booked thru hotels.com which I found to be easy & efficient. We arrived right around check in time & were greeted at the front desk by Michelle. She was courteous, professional & very helpful with some ideas of things we may enjoy doing during our first visit. The location was perfect for us as we had ridden our... Read more

My room was a ground floor requested because of my bike. My buddy and I was comfortable in the room. Continental breakfast with the usual stuff... but we weren't looking for that with all the excellent restaurants close by. The tv was acceptable and the ac worked well. No glitz here , just good bed and hot water. Clean and comfortable was what we were looking for with a good price and that's what we got. Great location to the strip close to the park.

Please do not stay here unless you like bed bugs. We had this motel booked 2 months in advance so we wouldn't have any problem finding a room since it was Gatlinburg's busiest time of the year. We checked into our room and my husband went to sit on the bed and turned the pillow over and there it was crawling on the pillow, a bed bug, disgusting! They told us the room was just cleaned as well!! Needless to say, we did not stay there and they did give us our money back for a two night stay. I am... Read more

This was the first time we have stayed at River Edge after visiting the area for over 30 years. We were very pleased with our stay. The room was large and the beds were perfection. My husband and I enjoyed our private balcony in the mornings and afternoons, after hiking in the National Park during the day. The location was within walking distances to all shops and restaurants on the parkway in Gatlinburg but away from all the traffic of the main strip that runs through Gatlinburg into the park....

River Edge Motor Lodge has a certain charm about it. It might not have the most lavish interior, but after a long day in Gatlinburg, walking back to the pretty building was always a treat. The continental breakfast was fine. Decent coffee and Krispy Kreme donuts will never go unappreciated by my wife and I. The room was quite clean, the maid service was excellent, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Having your own little porch is a good bonus. We had only two small issues. 1. The sheets...

I stayed with a friend for three nights. The first night the TV went out and a young man came right away and tried to fix it. He couldn't, so he moved us to another room. The rooms are just worn out. The employees are excellent and do all they can but I wouldn't stay again in the rooms. For the price it should have been better.

We had stayed multiple times because we liked the location & the beds were comfortable, although the motel is quite rundown. This trip, my driver's license & credit card were copied, even though I had booked online & despite my objections. That had not been done in the past. I was very uncomfortable about it because my credit card number was stolen by a motel employee at a place we stayed a few years ago. Because of that change in policy, we will no longer stay here!

The hotel staff was very friendly but this hotel is in desperate need of a remodel. My husband and I took cold showers the first couple of days because the hotel was full and apparently they only have one hot water heater and cannot handle a full hotel. The beds were uncomfortable and our room wasn't clean when we arrived. They did clean it immediately after we told them the issue.

We booked one night at the River Edge Motor Lodge on Veteran's day weekend, the staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was great, so close to everything but off the main, busy, downtown street. The only negative thing is that the shower head in the bathroom needed to be replaced. It was a very hard spray to where it was almost like a mist. but overall it was a good stay, Would stay here again.

The hotel staff are incredibly friendly while being quick and efficient at what they do. The breakfast room is small with limited choices for the continental breakfast, but who can complain when it's clean and free! The rooms are dated, but they are a decent size, clean, and quiet. It's a motor lodge, it's not a 5 star hotel. For the price you pay it goes above my expectations.

I will never stay at this hotel again. The ceiling above the shower was falling in and had black spots on it. We had no hot water both mornings.

It was in need of a little updating but our view of the river road was great on our balcony. It was walking distance to everything downtown if you like to walk. If not a trolley stop was near.
