"Spring Break 2015"
April 2015
I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It was clean, and the staff were amazing. Had some issues with our keys but the front desk was there to help. Loved the nightly popcorn. Disppointed that the outside pool was not heated because the inside pool was packed with young kids and our older kids could not enjoy the pool or hot tub.

Tip: Spring Break is super busy and you will need extra time to get around. Hotel is close enough to walk to get food.

"The Inn On The River is Fabulous and they TRULY Care About Their Guests"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 18, 2019 NEW
In addition to the ideal location in Pigeon Forge along the river and the fantastic breakfast, the staff here really care about their guests. My wife and I had an unforeseen issue arise during our stay (which was personal/family and had nothing to do with our accommodations) and the staff helped in a way that certainly was not expected and we are grateful. It's obvious the staff takes lots of pride in their different tasks - rooms, hallways, entryways, the lobby, were all kept very clean. Beds were very comfy. And the breakfast - I've not seen anything quite like it at other comparably-priced hotels. Typically, I've seen 1-2 people working the entire breakfast. I saw at least 5 workers involved in breakfast - keeping fresh food out, keeping the tables cleaned, the trash emptied, and one lady who kept everyone supplied with fresh waffles. This is THE best value in Pigeon Forge. I highly recommend the Inn on the River. You will not be disappointed and you will feel like family.

We decided to come to Pigeon Forge one day early but our cabin rental was totally booked. I looked on Trip Advisor and decided on The Inn because of the great reviews and we were NOT disappointed! The price was right, inside entry to our room and free buffet breakfast! We arrived late but we’re greeted happily by the late night staff! We enjoyed the free water dispenser with ice near the check-in desk. The room smelled nice and clean and was comfortable for 4 adults for the night. Morning coffee was available right outside the elevator on the first floor plus in the room. We all enjoyed the buffet breakfast! We sat in the patio which had a plastic enclosure to keep us warm. It was still very lovely and we were still able to see and enjoy the view of the river. We were pleasantly surprised The Christmas Village was right next door and we were able to walk straight there! Love that place, especially at this time of year! Enjoy your stay at The Inn on the River!

Noticably clean and well kept place! Very friendly staff! Our family had a blast making Christmas ornaments with Heather in the lobby. My daughter was very excited to decorate her very own Christmas ornament. Daxa was very attentive to our needs in the breakfast area and my 8 month old son couldn’t stop smiling at her! My daughters favorite part was the nightly popcorn and also the indoor heated pool. We forgot to pack arm floats for my daughter for the pool but there were some in the bin beside the along with pool toys. Misty, Josh, Nicole, Eva, and other staff members were very friendly and attentive to our needs. Thank you!!
