“You get what you pay for!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

I read reviews before I booked this place and I thought I would give it the benefit of the doubt. Well, have you ever heard the statement that "you get what you pay for?" That sums it up. I paid $65 for the room and that is exactly what I got. The pool was tiny and extremely cold. The room was clean, but terribly old and needed refurbished. There was mold on the tub and sinks, etc. Something that the poor cleaning lady probably could not clean off. Just too many years of use. The motel sits way too close to the highway, which had loud traffic all day and night. I won't be staying here again.

Room Tip: All rooms face the busy highway with too much road noise.

The hotel is older yes buy they have done a lot of remodeling and the rooms are lovely. (The people they had paint were a little sloppy though.) The people are very nice, they have a strong wifi signal, it is very quiet despite being along the strip, it is conveniently located and seemed quite safe. They do not permit pets but do offer a military discount. We will stay here again.

I read a number of bad reviews, which left me trepidatious. So let me tell you the bad stuff first:
The smoke alarm was chirping when we cheked in (they replaced the battery quickly), parts of the room were a bit dated, the toilet needed an occasional jiggle to get it to stop, and the bathroom sink was plumbed backward.
Now the good stuff:
This was the most affordable room I have stayed in in the last 15 years. The staff was friendly and attentive to our one concern (the smoke alarm), and the room was spacious, clean, and comfortable.
We are hoping to visit Sevierville again next year and will happily stay there again.

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!!!
