“4 nites at edgewater hotel gatlinburg tn”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Nice clean room hotel staff very friendly. Hotel garage is really too small and breakfast was nothing to brag about. The location is great tho! Spaces in garage are way too small hard to get in and out and breakfast needed better donuts and maybe gravy for your biscuits.

Room Tip: one on street side or creek side

Was on a tour with about 50 people. We were in our rooms in a reasonable time. The place is just ok, used and abused, needs a facelift. Don't expect much for breakfast. First day was biscuits and patty sausage, no gravy, no eggs, a biscuit and a sausage patty. Second day was a biscuit and an egg patty. No gravy, no sausage or bacon, a biscuit and a egg patty. Maybe I expect too much. We were on the sixth floor. This place has the slowest elevators ever. Wasn't a terrible stay, all and all just ok.

Room Tip: Most of the hotels along the river have age on them. If you want a newer hotel you would probably b...

We waited a bit on check in, but other than that we enjoyed the location and view. The elevators were slow and seemed to be the only downfall. The the staff left us complimentary drinks as it was our 25th wedding Anniversary. Wish we could of checked in sooner than 4 so that we didn't get in the traffic jam up the road for an hour.
Breakfast wasn't the greatest.

My fiancé and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. When we arrived and showered our hair dryer (the one in the wall) was broken. It was immediately fixed when we requested. Our view was also AMAZING, and with just a short walk from all the places we went was a bonus. Another big thing for me is safety. Being a female when my fiancé wasn't present to escort me there was always a staff member who graciously walked me to my room.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor and our view was fantastic.

I was booked here by blue green. I am sure I was booked into a standard room since it was a promotional thing. The front desk staff were friendly. I had a mountain view room which had a view of a hillside and the pool. Parking is very very tight even for a mid size vehicle and is all under the building. Elevators were slow. It took almost 10 minutes to get a cart to haul my luggage because of the elevators. The wait was not to bad after checkout time. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: City/river view are probably better.

Our weekend stay in Gatlinburg was incredible; however, this hotel tried it's best to ruin it! During our stay, the hotel was hosting a beauty pagent for babies/young girls! There are no words to describe the unending chaos this caused normal guests! First of all, little divas and their mom's were coming out of the word work! Running down the halls, doing cartwheels in the lobby, screaming, crying, etc., etc.! In addition, the hotel only has two elevators (for over 1000 guest? really?). They were not only the slowest elevators in Sevier County, but you could never get on one. I didn't meet a single guest who wasn't happy with how to get in the hotel, out of the hotel, or from floor to floor. We called the front desk and asked to be moved to an "adult" floor as the noise in the hallways from the beauty pagent participants was ridiculous (hello diva moms! Are you just totally stupid and irresponsible?)! They offered to move us to another room and we agreed to go look at it. Once we arrived there (after climbing several flights of stairs because remember, getting on the elevator is like getting God on the telephone!), we discovered that guests on this floor were smoking (the hotels advertises and makes you sign an agreement that the hotel is a non-smoking property and that violators will be punished). When we alerted the hotel to the smoking situation, they were not concerned and unresponsive. Overall, this is the worse place I have ever stayed. BYW, mountainside view is simply a concave landscape covered in weeds and overgrowth overlooking the concrete parking lot. NEVER AGAIN. The rooms were decent, but the overall experience with everything else was so bad that the "average room" was overshadowed. The parking garage was also an experience--parking places are ridiculously cramped and difficult to manuver. I would recommend taking a very small vehicle! We are going back to our orginal property which we never had issues with--just didn't have a vacancy at the time.

we stayed here on September 28 for one night on a last minute vacation. Staff was very friendly..the hotel is very clean. we stayed on the 7th floor. The room smelled very clean and it was very nice. We had a mountain view and the room also had a refrigerator, coffee pot, blow dryer and complimentary shampoos and soaps. the bedding was very clean and they have an extra blanket between the sheet and the top comforter. We had plenty of towels. The complimentary breakfast was great ..buiscuits and gravy, waffles, fruit, yogurt, coffee, juice, doughnuts, fruit, cereal...We will stay here again!

Room Tip: get a room on the top floors for the great view
