I'm going to assume that anyone going to Pigeon Forge knows what they are getting into (if not do some research and think Myrtle Beach, Daytona Beach, Branson etc). So, when you travel to a city that is known for tourist stops like...

I have stayed a lot of different places in the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area. The Inn on the River is by far the best. The complimentary breakfast is great. Anyone would be making a big mistake if they did not stay here

The rooms were comfortable, and the private balconies were nice. The location was wonderful, as we could walk to many restaurants and some attractions. The staff was courteous and helpful. They accommodated our request to have adjoining rooms with our friends.
