I'm not sure how anyone could give this place a bad review. We stayed in a double queen room with fireplace and it was great. Our balcony overlooked the river and was very private. This will be my new go to spot in Gatlinburg.

Pros:
- Large room with sitting area
- Fireplace with wood restocked daily
- Continental breakfast delivered to your door every morning
- Location - 1 block from center of town
- Decor - (a bit old but it reminded me of the old cabins we used to stay in so I liked it)
- Balcony overlooking the river
- Staff, everyone we dealt with was extremely friendly and concerned with our stay

Cons:
- No online booking or availability check ( a minor inconvience)

Room Tip: If traveling in the cooler months pay the extra for a wood burning fireplace room.

This is my second review for the Riverhouse. The reason being is we have no desire to even try to stay at another place. If your visiting Gatlinburg for some RR time this is the place to come. Nice and quiet but close to walking in downtown. The best feature is their fireplaces. Please Riverhouse don't change a thing. We love it that you keep things the same. That is why we keep returning.

We are sitting on the porch right now, relaxing to the sound of the river rushing by. This place is perfect...and quiet. Close enough walk to the touristy areas but far enough away to almost forget where you are. Rooms are clean and ours has a fireplace and a jacuzzi tub. Highly recommended if you need some relaxation time!

Awesome place for stay in Gatlinburg!!!
We stayed here for 4 days on winter vacation and had a wonderful stay. The staff was very accommodating throughout our entire stay. Each day your room is refreshed and firewood and starter logs are replenished. The room was very nice. After reading prior reviews on yelp, I was worried the room would be "dated" however we thought the room had been very nicely updated with a rustic motif. We really enjoyed it and think its a great, comfortable stay for a mountain retreat. The rooms have updated rock work around fireplaces and flat panel television, fridge, and microwave. Also, the jacuzzi tub was very large and ideal for a relaxing bath. Each room has a great view of the river and you can open the window to listen to the water through the night while also hearing the crackling fire. As far as location, the hotel is a very short and easy walk from all the attraction in Gatlinburg. We will never stay anywhere else in Gatlinburg.

This was our second stay in Gatlinburg within 6 months and the Riverhouse Motor Lodge was a great pick. The only down was we booked late and could not reserve a room with a wood burning fire place. Our double queen room was very spacious with a nice table and two chairs to eat your "room service" breakfast and enjoy watching the squirrels and birds in the trees on the balcony. The bathroom was nicely updated, plenty of towels, water pressure decent. The room also had a small frig and micro. Beds were comfortable and relaxing. Considering the lodge was full, the only thing you heard from inside the room was the river. Location was great, just behind the moonshine shopping area.
