My wife and I stayed here over the July 4th weekend when Gatlinburg was PACKED. We didn't spend a lot of time at the inn, but it was perfect for what we needed: A clean room, good shower, and easy breakfast -- all within a short walk from Gatlinburg's main attractions. The room we were initially given was not what we expected from our booking, but the inn staff was very accommodating and moved us to a great room. Everybody working there was friendly. The front desk staff happily provided information about local attractions and the best ways to visit them. The location is perfect: It's off the main drag, but right by Leconte St, which provides easy pedestrian access to the southwest part of the Parkway. Breakfast in the lobby was laid-back. People who wanted to hang out and socialize could do so at the tables provided; non-morning people were free to grab their food and retreat to their rooms. The premises were clean. I'd definitely stay here again.

Very convenient to the main strip on Gatlinburg! Comfortable and clean. We were there for 2 nights. We walked to all the major Gatlinburg attractions and the car stayed put. Helpful staff. We will back!

"Beautiful Rooms!"

Though it was for one night we greatly enjoyed our stay at River Edge Inn. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are all being re-done so everything was fresh, clean and new and beautifully done. They're working on the lobby and I'm sure the elevator lobbies will follow. The pool was lovely and the price was great. We would come back again! We also loved we could walk right on to the main drag and have dinner and walk back.

Stopped in Gatlinburg because we thought it would be nice... The town, eh, reminds me of Wisconsin Dells... The hotel was clean, quiet and well kept. The breakfast advertised wasn’t much of one...omelets in plastic wrap to microwave, danishes in similar wrap... juice coffee and water.... reminded me of a gas station... The room...was it worth $150? Maybe, but I also won’t go to Gatlinburg again
