“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

We have been staying at Riverhouse at the Park for several years. We found it by accident and have been returning there whenever we can get to Gatlinburg. We love the location which is within walking distance to everything, especially nice restaurants and shops, but is on the quiet end of town by the park. We have been getting one of the Parkview rooms for the last few years and love the view of river and waterfall--definitely worth the extra cost. You hear absolutely no noise at all, except for the water flowing over the rocks. The balconies are very nice and relaxing. The rooms are nicely furnished and big, with plenty of room for a table and chairs and comfy seating in the bedroom. We also like the separate dressing area and bathroom. The beds are very comfortable, shower is great, and they have updated the TVs. We would not think of staying anywhere else in Gatlinburg. A very nice clean place with super friendly staff.

Room Tip: I definitely recommend a room with a balcony over the river -- the very best rooms are the Parkview...

When traveling to Gatlinburg, I always stay at Riverhouse at the Park or Riverhouse Motor Lodge. For a true Smoky Mountain experience, this is the place to stay. It's always immaculately clean, friendly, and nowhere else can you have the private balcony over the Pigeon River experience. And where else can you have breakfast brought to your room in less than a minute? Knowing that I can depend on the cleanliness, friendliness, and price, it is indeed like returning home each time.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room on the river. The first floor has the best views, but all are nice.

It took me 4 hours to find a hotel to stay at this past weekend. I am picky but didn't want to pay 150.00 to stay at a hotel. I was trying to find a nice place that was reasonable, well I found it! This is the first time we stayed at this hotel and when we need a hotel again, it will be here! The room was plenty big, nice and very clean! Carpet looked new, bed was comfy, staff was great! The pool area was very nice and some of the balconies over looked the stream. The homemade donuts delivered to the room in the morning were fabulous! Our room was right next to where they made the donuts! The smell was awesome! lol It is an older hotel but the feel is like a cabin on the inside, more homey, less commercialize.
The location was really great. It was right next to the park. We walked out of our hotel and there was a walking trail! It was great! The staff was very helpful and after we checked out they even let us stay parked there while we picked up a few more souvenirs!
We will definitely stay here again!!

Our family takes a trip every year to Smoky Mountains and long ago we found this nice hotel 1 block off the beaten path...wonderful sitting , right out of the parking lot you go right and walk right on to the trail that is a nice walk by the creek...you can go clear up to the Visitor Center if you want..catch a trolley right on the corner or sit on a baloney over the blabbing brook...we book here every year and also now come back in December...and if we're lucky enough in the spring too...I can't say enough about this hotel.Over the years everyone we come in contact with are so nice and helpful...check in is easy and quick and check out is the same.. nice clean place ..Good size pool on the second floor...for the money you couldn't ask for a nicer , cleaner .,friendlier place to stay in Gatlinburg...I hope to be returning for years to come..

Room Tip: Rooms 203 and 204 are just a few steps from the pool ...rooms 208 and 209 are close to the elevators...

Not our first stay here (more like our 5th). Ground floor, creek front is cave-like and cozy w/ a fireplace. Pool is private and ideal for young families. Nice jaccuzzi tubs in bathroom. Super-locale to walk downtown or to a quick nature hike at the foot of the GSMNP. Morning coffee and toast delivered to your door.

Room Tip: Ground floor has closest and best view to watch the creek.

This is our first stay at Riverhouse at the Park. Super clean. The carpet was very clean and look new. The bathroom tile was very clean (no mold or mildew). The water pressure was the best anywhere we have stayed (25+ hotels and condos). The maid service was top notch. Our room was always very clean when we returned at night. We ordered a pot of coffee, donuts, and orange juice that was brought to our room free of charge. We would hang up the phone after ordering our breakfast and they would literally be knocking on our door in less than 2 minutes. Parking was good and close to the strip. Also had a nice trail (sugarlands) to walk on about 2miles. The trail was about 200 ft from front of motel. The pool was very clean. The river was great too, being right above it.....we loved to hear the sound of the water flowing (big roaring sound) Hotel staff was top notch. Older motel, but very nice and homey

Room Tip: room 310 was 3rd floor on the corner by the river and the road. If we stay again I will chose room 3...

We have stayed at River House many times and always enjoy our stay. It is located away from all the hustle but is still walking distance to downtown. It isn't like the Ritz but is nice and always clean. We always get their homemade donuts for breakfast which by the way are free with coffee and juice. Toast is also available. We have never been dissatisfied with our stay. The staff is always so nice and helpful.
