"Would not recommend"
February 2019
Booked on Third Party site: Reserve Pigeon Forge, called them before booking on the site to make sure the price was the best price. Told the person who answered the phone that the main reason we are booking their Motel was because of the indoor pool and the breakfast. When we arrived, the person who checked us in, told us the pool was out of service. I told her that was the main reason why we booked their Motel. I decided to at least look at the room. We get in the room and there was no toilet paper holder in the bathroom, the sink handle would come off in your hand and the refrigerator door would not close, if there was any weight in the refrigerator. We ask the front desk to have maintenance come and give us a toilet paper holder. When they got to the room, they told us the front desk should have told us that their our sites will allow us to swim at their indoor pools. I am not usually one to complain about my stay at a motel, but this place was not cheap, we called them and they never said anything about the pool being under renovations, the attendant never told us about being able to swim at other sites and this was just all around a very poor experience. I would not recommend this motel at all!!!!! If you want to be screwed and not told about issues at your motel you're stay at, then go ahead and stay at Econo Lodge Riverside.

"3 Night Family Stay"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 22, 2020 NEW
The picture of the swimming pool is pretty accurate. That could be important for families with children. We didn't swim but it looked and smelled clean and lots of people were using it during our stay. I think the picture makes it look a bit bigger than it is, but it's definitely a nice indoor area. We had a 3 night stay in a room with 2 beds. Almost all of the rooms are outside facing, outside doors, so your only window also looks onto the walk way that people are using to get to their rooms. I thought the layout made it a bit hard to find a bell cart and find your room walking exposed to the weather, but it's a minor issue. On the opposite choice, the indoor rooms all seemed to face the pool so that could be very noisy. Our room seemed very clean, the furniture seems new, the mattresses were firm and the sheets looked and felt clean and white and the room smelled like new paint. The only drawback is the room with 2 beds is a little bit small on space. There's really very little space between beds, between the bed and wall, and between the bed and the table with 2 chairs they put in there. On the wall by our hair dryer are two holes they haven't yet repaired. The free breakfast has several hot items with eggs, breakfast meat, biscuits and gravy. There are premade waffles with a toaster in addition to several other cold choices of yogurts and cereals. It's a pretty good breakfast included in the price. I saw someone review that the dining room was small, I think it's maybe not small but instead it seemed like quite a crowd on our mornings with people lingering after they finished their meal. It seemed to me the breakfast time lasted until after 9 so you don't have to get up early. My take away is the room was very nicely priced and provided a clean room and comfortable bed. All the staff were very friendly. We would stay there again.

"Fun and Family Friendly Property"

Third stay at Econo Lodge Riverside. Visited a few days after New Years. We had a lovely time. Check in was fast and friendly. I enjoyed the lobby. They had great free coffee to help warm me up after a wet, but really fun day at Dollywood. The parrot to greet guests was a nice touch. I like the layout of the property, it is nice and unique. They give you a map so you can easily find your room and park in the best location. We had a room facing the river, which was nice so it was quieter than a parkway facing room. The overall vibe of the property is very family friendly. All of the guests were in a happy mood. While I didn't get a chance to swim, the pool area looked to be full of guests having a good time relaxing. I found the room to be comfortable. I got some quality sleep for sure. The heat kept the room nice and toasty. Decor was basic, but nice. Love the real wood furnishings and a picture of the US with license plates for each state. The shower was nice and hot, but as the other reviewers have stated, it is a bit higher off the floor than normal, so watch your step. (But it is my understanding they are planning to address with a remodel.) Location is good, right on the parkway. Always have enjoyed visiting the ducks hanging by the river. Breakfast was really good. Great coffee and juice. Enjoyed the eggs and sausage gravy. Tasty muffins too! They kept everything well stocked. Had a tv so you can catch up on the news. Overall, it is a good value property when you just want a comfy place to stay. Definitely would recommend for a family trip to Pigeon Forge.

"Decent Hotel with Fun Amenities"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 12, 2020 NEW
I don't usually stay with EconoLodge but this location seemed different. They have a great Riverwalk area with picnic tables and benches. I just love this fun little amenity. The daily breakfast was ok. It wasn't spectacular but it served it's purpose. I've had better free breakfast buffets at other Choice properties but it's free and they had decent food. It would definitely help defray the cost of an expensive meal in the area. The room was basic. It wasn't very large but it had a decent sink area for getting ready or making a coffee/tea. The cost is a bit high during peak season for what you get, but stay during less than peak and the cost is more reasonable. For the area, this is a clean, decent place to stay. I think if you're taking kids, it's really great due to the indoor pool and game room. Those are fun and great for a rainy day!

This is a large place. the Indoor Pool area was awesome. Loved the outside along the river. The property owners and staff do a wonderful job of keeping this area clean from the Geese, duck and pigeon droppings so that the visitors have a wonderful experience of enjoying the river and the animals. GREAT Job ECONO LODGE

"Clean with thin walls"

Reviewed January 02, 2020 NEW
We have stayed here before years ago and it is still clean. We had a street facing (city view) definitely do not recommend if you want sleep. Parking on front of building is very limited. Lobby is cozy with the fireplace. Walls are thin can hear everything surrounding rooms are doing and saying keep that in mind. This place is definitely for families with the microwave, mini refrigerator area. A lot of kids running around to the indoor pool area. Your Basic clean hotel!
