"Vacation for kids"

"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.

"Best Holiday Stay"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 01, 2019 NEW
Amazing stay. Hotel was everything we were looking for in our vacation. We were two adults and two children. Booked in a room with two queen beds and balcony overlooking river. Room was spacious, clean, quiet, comfortable, and had lots of storage space. Loved the fridge and microwave area because could buy items for snacks and sandwiches to save on some costs. Hotel has great indoor pool and hot tub (outside pool too but too cold for this trip). Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. Brought more towels and toothpaste to our room (we forgot to pack that) quickly when called front desk. Fire pit outside was very relaxing at end of the day. Breakfast was plentiful and appreciated the hours (lasted until 10 am). Popcorn in lobby nightly, coffee, ice water, and hot chocolate were all enjoyable 24/7. Very convenient location to attractions, dining, shopping, and trolley car line. We will definitely be back. Hotel was beautifully decorated for holidays. Overall fantastic stay. Only change to suggest would be a little more variety for breakfast such as boiled eggs, sliced fruit, and cinnamon rolls. Still plenty of options but after several mornings a little more variety would have been lovely. Will book again.

" A different Thanksgiving this year"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 30, 2019 NEW
This is one of the best hotels in Pigeon Forge we had the pleasure of staying in. Upon our arrival my wife and I were greeted graciously by courteous staff especially Mr. John McCaul at the desk. He was a treasure trove of info and suggested many restaurants and venues to patronize. He also gave us great information about the hotel and suggested having some sweet tea and popcorn, and I love tea. Our room was clean, relaxing, and well decorated so it was a pleasure resting after a long day of enjoying Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The continental breakfast was just what we needed for we have heard of long wait times at breakfast restaurants. The breakfast staff were also courteous and helpful and they suggested prime restaurants for Thanksgiving dinner which worked out perfectly. We will definitely book our stay here when we return and bring friends and family to enjoy "The Inn on the River!" I give them 5 stars!
