This was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. It was so cozy and the staff was the best. The reviews that say it is dated are correct, but we all found it to be charming and this hotel won our hearts. The hotel is just steps from the entrance to the park and we found this to be so convenient getting to the Sugarlands Visitor Center. Turn right out of the parking lot and you are in the park. No fighting the traffic. The hotel is right on a river and some of the rooms overlook it. It is also conveniently located to restaurants and attractions (Ober Tram). Be sure and get the homemade donuts and coffee/juice which are delivered right to your room in the mornings. They are delish and a great way to start the day. We loved the rooms with beautiful pictures on the walls-each one lighted to enhance the ambiance. There is a fireplace with gas log and easy on wall switch to instantly have the coziness of a fire. The jacuzzi tub worked wonderfully and was welcome after a full day on the trails. The room also had a refrigerator and microwave. The rooms also had balconies with chairs and tables. We felt like we were transported back to the 60's, but with Wifi and flat screen tv's which hang above the fireplace. Super clean too.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the river side. Street side rooms have some traffic noise. Quiet overnight though.

Best place to stay in the Smokies! So sad about the Riverhouse Motor Lodge. My family's home away from home. So hope they are able to rebuild soon. Glad Riverhouse at the Park is there as a temporary retreat. But, it doesn't take the place of the Motor Lodge. Rebuild soon please! :)

Room Tip: Love the balconies overlooking the river!

We just returned from our first visit to the area since the fires. We did not realize it had gotten your beautiful lodge until we drove by. So sad to see it gone. Hope you are able to rebuild and help create more and new memories for so many. God Bless You!

West pray that you will rebuild. We have been staying with you for over 20 years. Birthdays weddings and just visits have been with you. You have been through a devastating time, but we hope you will rebuild and we can spend many more visits with you.Thanks for the memories.

This was the only place we stay when we come to Gatlinburg about twice a year. Can help them out by staying up the street at River House At The Park. At The Park has great rooms, donuts, and orange juice.
