“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This is a wonderful Place to stay. I was here 20 years ago and was glad to see after all that time and all of the changes to Gatlinburg, the Riverhouse was still here. People were very friendly Room was great. We had a balcony overlooking the river, Whirlpool tub, and fireplace in our room. The breakfast was better than a continental breakfast; room service brings it to your room. Homemade donuts and coffee. Great!! Its just a short walk to the Heart of the town. The Price was very reasonable for all that was provided. I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as we did.

We have stayed several places in town and this is always our favorite. The in room continental breakfast is awesome. Our kids feed the animals on the porch. It's always super clean. We have been fortunate enough to stay at the Ritz Carlton in several countries and we love The Riverhouse. Don't miss it and you will not be disappointed.

We stayed at the Riverhouse over the Fourth of July and were impressed with the spacious, quiet and CLEAN accommodations. It was also, probably, the best hotel bed we have ever had! The "room service" continental breakfast was nice. No jockeying for a seat or waiting in line. My husband is a big fan of the homemade donuts. The in-room jacuzzi in the our room was a great bonus as well! Staying at the Riverhouse Motor Lodge definitely enhanced our overall vacation experience!

We came down to Gatlinburg for a last min vacation before school starts. After reading reviews on this place we decided to give it a shot. Location of the hotel was perfect. Short nice walk to the road with everything on it. Check in was short and easy from friendly front desk guy. Our room was right across from pool and was very surprised at the room. For being a older hotel the room was huge and very clean. It was probably cleaner then most hotels I have ever stayed at (no corner in bathroom missed). The carpet may have been fairly new or just kept clean. The bathroom was also updated. Shower drain slow but oh well. Big huge vanity area also. There was a flat screen tv and a large balcony overlooking river. It was nice to sit and just listen to water and had some bird visitors. Every morning you call when you want your free breakfast of homemade doughnuts or toast. We had both and kids were excited about the breakfast in our room . Everyone liked the doughnuts. Coffee and oj were also provided and brought to our room within a short time of calling. We did not use the pool but looked clean. I did do a load of laundry which was a short way down from our room and you can buy a box of detergent at the front desk. For one load wash and dry it was 2.75 good deal compared to other hotel coin operated. If the next time we come to gatlinburg this is where we WILL stay!

Best part was the balcony overlooking the creek. We enjoyed though it was a bit on the cool side for May. It was quiet being a bit off the main street, but still close enough to walk to the hustle and bustle.

Room Tip: Select a room on the creekside

I live not far from Gatlinburg and have been staying there quite often the past couple of months. This was our first stay at Riverhouse and the reviews were accurate. The room was big and the outside porch with the creek was wonderful. Having breakfast delivered to your room was another great perk. I will be staying here as many times as possible.

This was our first visit to Gatlinburg so I asked friends who came here often (for over 40 years) and they strongly recommended this lodge. It is very nice, very well kept, lodge with lots of character tucked back off the main tourist drags but not far away. Our room was actually a small suite with a fireplace and balcony overlooking a creek. Very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Big, very comfortable king size bed

Want to come back in the late fall to use the fireplace and get away for a few days. Can't speak highly enough about it.
