“Not great, not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

We stayed in the hot tub room in the main picture (hot tub is good size). The room smells a bit like stale smoke, which was an immediate turn off for me. Basic room and bathroom, refrigerator was super small with tiny freezer space that couldn't be used (needed defrosting). View of river out the back is not very exciting, but allowed for fresh air to move through the room to air it out. The price was good, but this was the least nicest room and hotel that we stayed at during our trip. I personally wouldn't stay here again, but it's not too bad. Did not see the wood floor rooms, it sounds like they get better reviews and they are even cheaper. Would recommend skipping the hot tub room.

The websites we found made it sound like a good motel. We have had to go without water, and/ or hot water for 3 days now and they refuse to refund our money. Would not recommend to anyone. There are cheaper places with much better service.

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. The city of Sevierville was experiencing water problems causing the temporary water shut off. We want everyone visit to River View Inn to be a comfortable and affordable.

My family had a blast! OMG! The hardwood floors R perfect if a child spills a drink. I love the floors after the remodel. The room was very clean, very nice and different from other motels/hotels we have stayed in. Day shift is very helpful and very polite. I WILL RECOMMEND THIS TO OTHER FRIENDS/FAMILY MEMBERS!!!

We are a small construction company that travels along the eastern part of the US. Our crew for the project there enjoyed their month long stay. The staff was excellent with our weekly changes and reserving of rooms. The rooms themselves were very nice and comfortable. We will definitely book rooms for our crew there if we have another project nearby. The rates were very reasonable.

Our family came down for a extended weekend and after reading the reviews for River View Inn we decided to stay with them. When we pulled up we were a little nervous because the outside did not look welcoming, but as soon as we opened the door to our room we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are very spacious with beautiful laminate floors that make the room feel very cozy. Our youngest daughter loves horses so when she opened balcony door which is right on a river with a giant horse pasture on the other side she was ecstatic. The beds were comfortable and the room very clean. The staff was very attentive to our needs, the young man in the office probably ran up to out room ten times with extra towels, blankets and all the pillows we needed. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back soon!

I am in outside sales and I work in East Tennessee a lot. When I stay over I stay at the River View Inn. I am currently in room 258 and it has new laminate wood floors. The room is very nice enough, and the bed acceptably comfortable. I say it this way, because the price is so good! Overall a great value and the owners are very nice.

Room Tip: Ask for room with the wood floors

We had a pleasant overnight stay at the River View Inn. Our room was a non-smoking king room with fridge/micro. I liked the fact that there was laminate wood flooring in the room instead of carpet. Tile floor in the bathroom. Free breakfast is simply donuts and coffee. Wouldn't have a problem staying here again.
