I have stayed in several places in Pigeon Forge and this is on the top with my previous favorite! I asked ahead for 2 rooms that connect and they did that! 3rd floor, back side facing the river. Loved it! We were 364 and 362 incase anyone needs connecting rooms. The rooms are clean, beds so comfy and spacious. Pool...

My husband and I stayed the weekend at Econolodge Riverside and were very pleased with our visit. From the time we checked in until we checked out at the end of the weekend, we felt right at home.

I have stayed here many times and it's always good. The river behind the hotel is wonderful with bubbling waters and ducks to feed. They have added a fire pit for night fires and a gazebo for picnics. The breakfast has expanded to include hot items such as biscuits & gravy, waffles and French toast. Pool area is indoors so...

I went on a trip with my mom and a friend and I wasn't sure exactly where to stay in Pigeon Forge. I found this Econo Lodge online and it looked promising. I was not disappointed. Not only was it close to everything that we wanted to do, it was exactly as advertised. We stayed in the backside over looking...

We rented this room on a spontaneous "weekend" getaway. The room was clean and well worth the money. I didn't swim in the pool but it looked amazing and there were families in it. The hot breakfast was also very good, will definitely book again.

We stayed for one night this past weekend (last weekend of Feb). The best parts of the hotel are the friendly front desk staff and the location. This hotel is located right on the main drag of Pigeon Forge, almost directly across from the fancy Inn at Christmas Place hotel. The rooms are in need of a re-do. I did...

Awesome hotel especially for the rates. We've stayed on two separate occasions now for multiple days each visit. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The river/pavilion area in back is great to sit around and relax and feed the ducks and geese if you like.
