We stayed in the heart of Pigeon Forge everything was only minutes away something's were walking distance. Room was nice for what we paid, and we was only there long enough to sleep and get cleaned up. Had continental breakfast every morning.

Stayed: August 2014

My husband and I stayed here for our little vacation. We wanted to save money on the hotel so we could do more activities. The room was very clean and spacious, had a flat screen, a nice size mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We had forgotten to print our waivers and invoice for white water rafting, and the hotel's internet was down. The clerk at the front desk had us email her the papers we needed and printed them out for us right then and there. Breakfast was great for continental breakfast. We really enjoyed sitting by the river to eat. I would not spend money on the river view, though. It's more of a parking lot view THEN the river. Overall, we had a really great time and would definitely stay there again!

My family has stayed here so many times. It is a great value, even though we have outgrown one room here we can still rent two at a better price than a lot of the other places in town. It's in a great location near shopping restaurants and shows. The riverside rooms are the best side to stay on because on the other side you hear a lot of the street noise at night. Only cons are that the walls are thin and it can be noisy at night, hearing people snoring from other rooms and kids up making noise late at night and that their is no ventilation in the restroom. If you have more than 4 make sure to rent a extra room, overall it's a good place for the price, we will return many times and I always recommend to friends.

We recently spent a total of 4 nights at the Econo Lodge Riverside in Pigeon Forge within a week and boy, were we pleasantly surprised. The room was as clean as any room I have stayed in that wasn't my home. Everything was in perfect condition. The entire building was in great condition and had all the amenities that we could want. Indoor swimming pool, laundry available, a GREAT breakfast each morning. It was the same each day but delicious and enough variety to mix it up. I just happen to like the same things. All staff, whether it be office, cleaning, maintenance, etc., were fantastic and so polite. My wife and I (and a 17-year old granddaughter) really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this hotel to anyone. The bed was really comfortable, too. This is not the Waldorf, but what a great place and a great bargain. Everything looks practically new as well. 5 Stars from us!

Room Tip: Riverside was convenient to a large parking lot. With 3 floors not everyone can park directly in fr...

It looks like the rooms have been recently freshened up. My family has gone so far as to take notice of paint colors for use in their own homes! The view of the river is nice, with benches to sit & listen to the water. The pool was on the smallish side, but OK. Breakfast was good - no day-to-day variety, but good.

I would have no problem staying here again.

Room Tip: Rooms adjacent to the pool can be noisy after dinner.

I have stayed here several times. Really clean rooms, comfortable beds. The river runs behind the property and there are geese and ducks that you can feed. All in all a very relaxing environment. Parking is right by the door for ground units, large enough that you can park the car so that it can be seen from the second floor.

I too, would have hesitated to stay at an economy lodge if for not really investigating it... Rooms were very nice.. There were two adults and two small children... We had a refrigerator and micro wave... This was very convenient... The indoor pool with a separate children's pool was very nice.. River walk on the back is very cool ... Kids liked feeding the ducks... Also has a fire pit... The kids got to play on rocks in creek and loved it.. Our room had no view but we were very convenient to pool... Breakfast was very nice with good selection...good location..
