“Great independent hotel!”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Rooms are clean, pool is clean, Bath and Body Works complimentary bath items, unroll fridge and coffeemaker, full buffet breakfast was delicious and hot and staff always helpful and friendly. We live local and will always stay when in town! Not under the strain of chain hotels. They know how to treat guests.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with friends

What a great find! This hotel has clean rooms, comfortable beds with great pillows (my husband is very pillow picky and he was thrilled with the pillows) and the balcony that overlooked the river was the icing on the cake!
The breakfast served by Amy and Val was the best we have ever had at a hotel! Hashbrowns and grits are usually something you don't get to enjoy at a hotel buffet, but this hotel serves them up right along with many other items that are delicious. Amy and Val's smiles and superior attitudes made it even better! There is even an area overlooking the river where you can take the many breakfast options outside to enjoy. Coffee, hot chocolate and hot tea options are available 24/7 in the lobby area... what a nice treat! Popcorn and fruit is available also in the evenings. There is just several things this hotel does that is above the norm.
The only thing that I must add is that I wish the front desk ladies at check in and check out were as friendly as the breakfast ladies. It would have been nice to have been informed that there are two towers and to be directed on which elevator to take to get to your room. Just be sure of which hotel section your room is in to know which elevator to take as it can be confusing but should be explained at check in.
There was a great indoor pool area that we did not use but several were enjoying it.
This hotel is next to several great eating areas that are within walking distance.
We slept peacefully with no hotel noise except the pleasant sounds of nature from the river.
This is definitely a place we would stay again, just hope to be greeted with a smile next time!

Room Tip: Spend the little extra to have a balcony room... it is well worth it!

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice room, enjoyed the view of the river. Staff was very friendly. Wonderful huge lobby with fireplace, great breakfast bar. We enjoyed the indoor pool, and Jacuzzi. The girls who prepared the breakfast, were very friendly. We will definitely be back during warmer weather!

We have the most enjoyable stay we have ever had in Pigeon Forge. The room was so clean, and very comfortable. My husband loves a Big breakfast, so he was very happy. The staff was very helpful and so friendly. We have already been telling friends about The Inn on the River. We cannot wait to come back. Owen and Rhonda Edwards

I would like to commend the hotel for its service and comfortable stay.
Their support staff was awesome. I would especially like to commend two of the employees, A.J. and Jeannie who went above the norm for accommodating. The employee who supervised the breakfast was very pleasant and welcoming.

I will stay there again, soon I hope,.

Room Tip: I loved the balcony, even though it was cold.

We had a beautiful view of the river and the ducks! The room was so nice. The Jacuzzi in our room was awesome. We walked past the 2 pools but never got a chance to enjoy the indoor one. Everyone we saw in the pool looked like they were having a lot of fun, though. We enjoyed the BIG breakfast each morning and the popcorn and fire each evening. This Inn is in the middle of everything! It's the BEST place to stay. We are already planning another trip in the fall. Can't wait to get there.

Room Tip: You will definitely want a room overlooking the river. It's very relaxing.

Wonderful place to stay, loved the view from our room #132 (floor level). Will return again. The bed was so soft and easy to fall asleep in. Great location! Close to all the shopping and close access to head to Gatlinburg and the mountains.

Room Tip: We had the room with overlooking the river, beautiful view to wake up to and also see the mountains...
