The hotel was very clean and nice. The pool was good sized and the hot tub was hot. The breakfast was above average. The offer more then just cereal. We would stay again. The only bad thing is we had to go outside to get to the pool. There is no changing room or anything by the pool. So you have to go out in the cold to get there and then wet and cold to get back to your room. Next time we will request pool side with our young children.

I was actually surprised at just how great this hotel was. For the price, I was expecting something to be wrong. But it was GREAT!!!! Room was clean and spacious. Our jacuzzi tub was huge. The pool was clean and warm, with a kiddie pool and hot tub as well. The complimentary breakfast was great! Staff all very friendly and helpful. And the location was great! I have nothing negative to say about the Econolodge Riverside!!! I am sad we had to cut our trip short! If we ever return to pigeon forge this is our hotel!!!

After reading the reviews we decided to take a chance at this location. It was every good thing we read and more. The room was super clean, the pool was nice, the river walkway was very inviting (watch your step) and the breakfast was wonderful. The breakfast offered was a large selection and was in a very large area. It did get a bit crowded but we found a seat each morning. About everyone we met were returning guest. The staff was very professional and friendly. This place was very family friendly. I am sure we will be returning guest

We loved the Econo lodge! The rooms were very nice and updated! Pool was nice but I believe the measurements were off deep in says 5 ft and my husband and I are over 5 ft and neither one of us could touch bottom without going under beside that the only other problem I seen with the pool area is no restroom. Good breakfast! Over all we had a great time! We will be staying here again!

Watch where you step in the duck area. The ducks claim all ground and cement for a bathroom. HA.
It was nice to get to sit out next to the water and enjoy watching the ducks and geese. Took alot of photos.
We had a riverside room. Be careful stepping out of the tub/shower. It's was a longer drop than I was expecting. They have a red sign on the tub edge warning of stepping out of the shower. Just try and be extra careful.
The breakfast room is too crowded and was a slow line. They use small styrofoam plates so my advise would be to use a tray to put your food on. The eggs, etc. doesn't fit well on the little thing. It will take more than one. The line doesn't flow very well from the door they want you to come through. Too many people in a small working space. I was disappointed it that process. We had to sit outside which is ok except for chance of rain any minute.
There was a problem with the refrigerator door dragging on the carpet of our room. I mentioned it so they said they would let maintenance check it.
Be careful of the bathroom door lock. You can lock it by accident and can't get back in unless you place an object just inside the hole and turn the lock manually. A coin won't do it. The tip of any key might do the trick.
