Our Room Was Spotless. The service was excellent. The complimentary breakfast was great, and the food area kept clean and fresh food consistently provided. The grounds around the hotel were getting new landscaping, simply beautiful !

I stayed at the Econo Lodge for a ladies conference over the weekend. It is a well maintained hotel and they were doing more landscaping while we were there. The rooms were clean, not very big but had everything we needed. The river behind the hotel was nice and we saw ducks and ducklings. They even had dispensers where you could buy food to feed them. The breakfast was excellent and they had a good variety. I would recommend this hotel to others and would stay here again if staying in Pigeon Forge.

Room Tip: Our room faced the river and we heard no noise at night.

Room was clean, staff was friendly, breakfast was good, price was pretty reasonable, pool was nice. The layout of the place was a little hard to understand in finding our room.
Overall. I'd stay here again.

Stayed for three nights. The place was clean, pool was nice, breakfast was pretty good. Only complaint, our room was nearly impossible to find and was a very, very, long walk from the parking lot and elevators. If I had it to do all over again, I'd still stay here but I would request a more convenient room.

Dear Amy S,

Thank you so much for being our guest on your recent visit to Pigeon Forge. We are excited to learn that you enjoyed our delicious hot breakfast and our wonderful indoor heated swimming pool. Most of our guest love that we have these two great amenities offered at our property. I do apologize that you had a difficult time getting to your room during your stay. Next time you make a reservation with us I would recommend our beautiful riverside rooms they are more accessible to our parking and elevators. Again thank you so much for staying with us. We look forward to serving you again in the near future.

My family of four stayed at this motel based on price, prior reviews, and location. We were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and had both a refrigerator and a microwave. The location is fantastic. Right off of the parkway, but with the river running along the back parking lot. They have benches by the river to sit and relax, as well as quarter machines with feed for the ducks and geese. Oddly enough, we even fed a guinea that was walking around. It was surprisingly quiet with all the traffic that goes by. The kids loved the pool area, which features a large pool, a kiddie pool, and a hot tub. We thought it was a bit muggy in the pool area and just being in there made our eyes burn from the chlorine in the air. Those are the only negative comments I have about this motel. The breakfast is above average, plentiful, and fresh. There was something for everyone. Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: I would suggest getting a room with a river view. If none are available, I would request a room NOT...

Dear Bristol_TN_Tilleys,

We are extremely excited to learn that you had a fantastic experience while staying with us! Our river walk has become the highlight of our property. All of our guest love taking a stroll along the river and feeding the wild life that inhabits it. We just recently updated it with benches, picnic tables, charcoal grills and a fire pit. It is a beautiful scene. It's great to hear that our staff was friendly, our breakfast delicious and that your children loved our pool area. Thank you for being our guest and we look forward to serving you in the future.

My family and I stayed one night at the Econo Lodge Riverside. We picked this hotel based on a few things. Price, location, and indoor pool. We were more than happy with this hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to stay at a clean, affordable hotel in a great location on Parkway with a great indoor pool and jacuzzi. Our rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable, room was plenty roomy. We were riverside. The river that flows behind the hotel is very peaceful and beautiful with benches to enjoy the scenery and plenty of ducks to feed. Front desk staff was very helpful and we even got to check in early. The FREE breakfast is actually a hot breakfast with sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy among other items. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Unless you want to stay poolside, ask to stay riverside. The view is beautiful.
