“Excellent clean motel with friendly staff.”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Just finished a two night stay here as this hotel came highly recommended by a friend. It is a very nice clean motel, hot tub room was really nice at a very reasonable upgrade rate, breakfast was excellent and the duck feeding area by the river was an unexpected bonus. Highly recommend this motel if your looking for a place to stay in Pigeon Forge.

This is a great place to stay! We just got home last night from a 4 day stay with our daughters softball team. We stayed here a few years ago and it was nice then, but they have done a lot of upgrades since then. The rooms were VERY clean (with new furniture). Probably the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in!! The pool was great too! We especially liked the area by the river. Looks like it had just recently been re done. They had a grill by the river that we used to cookout for our ball team. The staff was very friendly! They even offered to give all 10 rooms a late checkout yesterday, because they knew our girls had played ball all day the day before and needed to sleep. And the rates were great too!! Will definitely stay again!!

Dear WVTraveler13,

Thank you for taking the time to give us a great review! We are excited that you had a great stay and enjoyed our beautiful river walk. It is a great place for ball teams as yourselves. We recently finished are new pavilion, inserted two more grills and have order sitting arrangements so that on your future stay you can enjoy this area. We appreciate your ball team being our guests and look forward to your future stay.

I have stayed at this location on numerous trips and have never been disappointed. Great location.we loved the new River walk and feeding the ducks. Our room was a river view and was very quiet. The bed was extremely quiet. Myw only wish was that we we able to stay a few more days and take in more of what the area has to offer. Will definitely be back.

This was our second stay at Econolodge Riverside, the ducks and river wasn't there on our first stay. Which we did enjoy, as well as the free breakfast. We were allowed an early check-in; the hotel staff was very friendly. We also enjoyed The Soul of Motown show @ The Grand Majestic which was within walking distance. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the river.

Super clean. Awesome front desk that upgraded us to a king size bed with a jacuzzi when they realized I had accidentally booked a handicap room. Affordable and nice. The location is also not far from pioneer park where you can park for free and then ride the trolley to Dollywood for 50 cents a person.

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!
