"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.

we stayed in the king bed room. The room was nicely decorated and clean. It is convenient to several things in the pigeon forge Area. They offer free breakfast with biscuits, eggs, and pancakes. We will definitely stay again.

The Econo Lodge exceeded all of our expectations. Very clean. The pics on the web were very accurate. No surprises! Using Reserve Gatlinburg was smooth and easy.

"Maybe I’m spoiled..."
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed May 17, 2019 NEW
So if you’ve ever read my other reviews you know I generally stay at higher end hotels...maybe I’m spoiled. I wasn’t expecting the Ritz but I do expect clean. We did a quick spontaneous getaway to Pigeon Forge and I went to trip advisor top ten hotels and this was on the list. Pros: good location on the river with feeding stations for the ducks, nice grounds, near Dollywood, pool and hot tub, standard size rooms and coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave in the room and free WiFi and breakfast. Cons: cleanliness of the bathroom and pool area (hairs in the bathroom and used band aids on the floor around the pool and the pool deck was just plain dirty), the WiFi is an unsecured network and stay with the bagel, waffle options for breakfast. The staff were very nice and helpful but I couldn’t get past some of the cleanliness issues. ( did I mention the phone in the room was dirty and coated with a sticky substance? Ew. How hard is it to wipe down a phone with obvious grime on it...hence the 2 rating)

"Friendly staff, comfortable overnight spot "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed May 16, 2019 NEW
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a quick overnight getaway last week. The staff at the front were super friendly and helpful when we arrived, and got us into our room quickly and efficiently. The rates were great, and the room was nice; clean, well maintained and supplied. The bed was comfortable and clean. The only issue we came across was the tub drain wouldn’t close for some reason, but when we called the desk, they immediately had maintenance come out to fix it. The maintenance man came quickly, and was friendly and helpful despite the late hour. Staff makes the stay great.

"Near perfection for families! "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 14, 2019 NEW
This is the 2nd time we’ve been to this hotel. We visited the first time in 2015 and 4 years later, it was just as good! Excellent price! We were in room 108 which is poolside and perfect for families since it’s also only rooms away from laundry and vending and ice machines. It’s also really close to the breakfast room. It was close enough that we felt comfortable allowing our preteen to go to breakfast a few min ahead. Pool and hot tub were clean. Room was clean and fairly updated decor wise. It had a small fridge and coffee maker. The detergent vending machine in the laundry room was out of order, but they had a sign that let us know they sold it at the check in desk which we did. Our room was one that could have been adjoined. The breakfast is delicious and has quite a great variety. We have two kids that are gluten sensitive and we were able to ask questions of the food worker. They ended up with honey Cheerios, fruit, sausage, and eggs. Admittedly we didn’t ask about the sausage, but took the risk and didn’t have any reactions. Someone with a severe allergy would want to do more investigation. For a small family that wants to do lots of activities in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and then swim at night, this is the perfect location! We did a weekend getaway in May during the week and it was super low crowd and perfect weather!
