“Just what I was looking for”
Reviewed 20 March 2009

We travaled up from Mississippi for a long weekend getaway booked this room a month ago off the internet. The Girl that helped me on the phone was very friendly. When we arrived I was very happy with the service and the room was GREAT. Very clean and plenty of room for my family. I will come back and stay here again. For the price, you can't beat this place.

My boyfriend and I travelled from Birmingham.....He has never visited Gatlinburg; I have on several occassions. I have stayed at 4 other hotels in town - always with the same requirements (jacuzzi, fireplace, king bed), and booked the Riverhouse sight unseen after reviewing it on the internet. What a GREAT result! While we were there, we checked out 3 other hotels, since we wanted to extend out stay. Nothing came close to the size of our King room with a hottub and fireplace, separate kitchen area and another whirlpool in the separate bath with an AMAZING shower head, location at the end of the busy strip, and the price. Although the TV was 20", with all there is to do besides, that wasn't even a consideration!! EXCELLENT value, EXCELLENT service, and we will be back again shortly!!

We recently spent the weekend at the Riverhouse at the Park. Although it's an older motel, it is very clean and spacious. Everyone working there is very friendly. The continental breakfast (coffee, juice, and fresh baked donuts) are delivered right to your door! It was really cold and snowy that weekend, so we loved having the gas fireplace on all night. (Many hotel rooms have a 45 min. timer, that you have to keep getting up reset it to keep the "fire going".)
Our only problem was that our bathroom was very cold the first night. The wall heater barely put out any heat, and the cold air around the door made the bathroom cold. We had to keep the room really warm so that the bathroom would get some warmth. So we asked the lady at the front office it we could get a space heater for the bathroom, and we got one the next morning. So our 2nd night our bathroom was very warm and comfortable.
So if you check in there and find the same problem with a cold bathroom, ask them for a space heater-and you'll enjoy your stay. Be sure to eat at the Peddler-it's the best!

Our hotel room was adequate and a bargain at only $55.00 for a Monday night. It was clean and had a hairdryer, refrigerator and a microwave. It did not have an in room coffee maker, nor was there coffee in the lobby, they only had tea. Also, it needs some updating, outdated decor, etc. There was a a lot of air coming in from the door and it was in the twenties so it was cold in the area by the front door, also the hot water in the sink never got hot. There was hot water in the shower but not in the sink for some reason.

We were in Gatlinburg for the big snow storm and it was absolutely beautiful!!! Enjoyed our stay at Riverhouse at the Park just wish they would do some refurbishing.

  • Liked — The price
  • Disliked — No hot water in the sink and no coffee available.

My husband and I stayed at Riverhouse at the Park in Nov. of 2008. It was just for the weekend. Wish we could have stayed longer. This place was wonderful. Right off the Parkway but within walking distance of everything. We stayed on the 2nd floor and even though it was street side it was very quiet. We could not believe the room when we walked in. Without a doubt the largest and cleanest room we have ever stayed in. The free coffee and homemade donuts in front of the gas fireplace every morning was wonderful. Very large balcony. My sister and her husband stayed down the street but visited our room. They couldn't believe it either and have decided this will definitely be their choice next time. And it will definitely be ours. Staff was very courteous. Can't wait until our return.

My husband and I just got back from our wonderful stay at Riverhouse At The Park.We decided to stay here after reading so many nice things on this forum.I have to say it was better than expected.We had stayed at cabins in the past and decided to try something different and after reading about this place we called and booked 4 days with them.When we arrived and entered the office we were treated so nicely.The lady that was working was very friendly and helpful.When we got to our room number 110 and opened the door we loved it.It was so big!Wow,what room we had.There was a king bed with lights above the headboard.A small table and two chairs which was nice to be able to eat breakfast on and a nice place for our laptops.Then there was a oversized chair(really a chair and a half)and large ottoman.There was also another arm chair with a table between them with a lamp.I loved the gas fireplace.You just turn on a switch on the wall and you had a beautiful romantic fire.The pictures on the walls had lights above them which was a nice touch.I loved the switches on the wall that was labeled wall,.pictures,and bed.You could turn on whatever lights you wanted or didn't want.The tv wasn't real big but had great color and alot of channels.We were told they would be replacing all tvs in 2009.We were able to receive wifi through a motel behind us which had a unsecured connect.We were also told they were going to be working on getting the wireles internet in all rooms in the next few months.Some rooms have no problems.It just depends on which room you have.The bathroom was large and had a nice jacuzzi tub which I loved.There was a wall hairdryer and a ironing board and a iron.A closet with hangers for your clothes.A micowave and a small refrigerator.A icebox was on the counter and they had a ice machine so you could get ice.They really have thought of everything to make your stay very comfortable.I loved the breakfast they include.You have your choice of coffee,hot chocolate or tea.You get orange juice and then you can get fresh baked donuts which are wonderful or whole wheat buttered toast or white with jelly.You call down between 8-10 am and place your order and within minutes your order is at your door.How great is that?When you are done just sit it outside your door and they come and get it.When we arrived we asked if they could furnish us a coffeepot for our oom and they said sure.The lady gave us a little basket with a coffeepot,filters,papercups and coffee.I tell you they think of everything.The room we had was on the bottom floor and our balcony was overlooking water and it had such a nice sound.We could hear it even with the door shut.There was also a table and two chairs on it and it was private.There is a hotel behind you but there are trees and I imagine in the summer months that would block alot and you would have more privacy.They have a maid service and everyday when we returned our bed had clean sheets and was made and clean towels and all garbage had been removed.We could find nothing wrong with this place.It was the cleanest place we have ever seen.What really impressed us was the fact that the wind had been blowing pretty hard and leaves were all over the balcony and when we opened the door they would try to blow in.We left for the day and when we got back the maid I guess when she cleaned the room had also swept off the leaves.That was really nice.I do not know who does their maid service but they are really good.This is our favorite new place and we cannot wait to return.It is located in a good location.There are several nice places to eat within a block that you can easily walk to and it is not to far to walk downtown.We liked it also because it was quiet.We were right on the front next to the street but it was quiet.We liked to be able to sit on the balcony and watch the cars and people go by.We would highly recommend this place to everyone.Once you stay there you will never want to stay anywhere else.

Visited for 2 nights and enjoyed the stay. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk. The folks in the office were very cordial, pleasant and helpful. We had a room by the river and the small waterfall, and enjoyed the view and sounds at night, very restful. The morning coffee and excellant donuts were a great way to start the day. Many sites and places to eat a short walk away. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to visit the national park, litterally minutes away. We would return to the Riverhouse, thanks to large,clean rooms ( a little dated ), a nice, simple breakfast, freindly staff, and reasonable rates
