“Don't Stay Here”
Reviewed 7 July 2011

Everything about this place is terrible, my family was so miserable!!! The room was nasty, no smoke alarm, one small trash can, no towels or wash clothes, rail broke off wall in bathroom, no clock, no frig., no coffee pot, had a bad smell. I was told the room was 259.00 over the phone including taxes, when I checked in I pd. 189.00. The orange juice at breakfast was milky looking, not a good selection of breakfast food, and it looked nasty, coffee in lobby Cold. The swimming pool was to small, maybe big enough for 8 people to play and swim comfortable. The young boy's action at the front desk was rude, and he also looked like a warm bath and hair cut would do him some good. My daughter and mother have several red spots on them, praying it's not bed bug bites, going to the dr. to find out . We checked out a day earlier and came home because of the service we received at the Econ lodge between lights 4 & 5. We stayed at the Econ Lodge riverside a few years back and it was nice. My husband and I drove cross country for several years and we have stayed at many different motels/hotels across the US, and this by far is the worst we have ever stayed at, thats including the truckers motels/hotels, they are nicer and cleaner them these rooms. Do not stay here, you are wasting your money and you will be very disappointed, several of the people we talked too at the hotel felt the same way we do. We checked in on July 3, 2011 and checked out July 5, 2011, we was afarid of not being able to get another room in Pigeon forge or we would have left before we even checked in...

We checked in went to the room it was not to our standards went back to desk and was told we would be charged for the room and THEY DID charge my credit card which we have disputed and reported this to Choice Hotels. This is not the way to do business!

Hotel is right next door to Go Karts, Mini Golf, etc. Great if you want to get out and walk the strip. Pretty quiet considering how close everything was. Room was small but clean. It is an older hotel and could use some updates. Best price I could find online that didn't have horrible reviews.

After reading the reviews online I was really skeptical, but when we arrived we were pleasently surprised the room was clean and the beds were fairly comfortable. Our room was in a quiet area for which Im thankful, because some of the rooms were steps away from the pool and it is a noisy area. Our toilet leaked one day and they fixed it promptly. Our room stayed cool the window unit ac was fine. The worst thing that happened was one day after a shopping trip (several hours) we returned to find that housekeeping had left our door open not wide open but none the less open and we had our laptop in there we are not sure how long it was open nothing was missing.
There were a few bugs I believe the crack under the door allowed for easy entry for them. No roaches just crickets and flies. The hotel is in a great location if you like the nightlife.

You get what you pay for. The pictures are misleading. The picture perspective would have you believe that the pool area was huge as well as the breakfast area. Boy were we surprised. Didn't even waste my time trying to go to breakfast. The mattresses were like sleeping on bales of hay. I'm afraid to think what was under there. The property has not been maintained very well. The rooms were reasonably clean, but very old and dated. The noise level between rooms is very bad. There were some unruly guests next door and we could hear everything. This place is not a good place for a typical family with children. Based on the clientele, I wouldn't leave valuables (i.e. laptop computers) in the car and took them with us when we were away from the room.

The Econolodge at Riverside (on the right coming into Pigeon Forge) looked excellent. They were posting a gold award on the marquee. Pulled in there thinking this was the place. Nope. Couldn't be that lucky. This was the one we "thought" we were booking.

Spring for the extra $30 or $40 a night and stay somewhere else. You will thank me for it. I can highly recommend the Music Road Inn or the Music Road Hotel. Not too overly priced. Excellent breakfast, rooms and pool facilities. Just off the beaten path enough to enjoy the quite, but still very close to shopping and restaurants.
