Please do not stay here unless you like bed bugs. We had this motel booked 2 months in advance so we wouldn't have any problem finding a room since it was Gatlinburg's busiest time of the year. We checked into our room and my husband went to sit on the bed and turned the pillow over and there it was...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on River Edge Motor Lodge. The new owners purchased the inn this past September and inherited some issues that have been addressed and are now under control. I was told by the new extermination company that there is not one single lodging establishment that has not experienced this issue because...

My room was a ground floor requested because of my bike. My buddy and I was comfortable in the room. Continental breakfast with the usual stuff... but we weren't looking for that with all the excellent restaurants close by. The tv was acceptable and the ac worked well. No glitz here , just good bed and hot water. Clean and...

I had another nice visit to this hotel and found out that it was recently bought-out. The previous owner was wanting to sell the property for years, and a big renovation is being planned. The new owner is expected to spend a great deal of money on the property and be completed around spring-time.

Motel was older one but was fine. We had a good stay with family. We stayed in a suite and had 10 of us. Everything went well. The kids really enjoyed the salt water pool. The breakfast was fine. The motel is close to Downtown Gatlinburg.
