"Great Location and Refurbished Rooms"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

When staying in Gatlinburg I prefer to stay in locally owned hotels/motels. And once again I was very happy with the results. When I arrived the people at the front desk were very friendly and sociable. Always a plus in a tourist area, especially in the off-season (does Gatlinburg have an off-season anymore?). The room itself looks like it was recently remodeled. Or else they really put some effort into maintaining the rooms. The room itself was quite large, with a separate sink outside the bathroom. Everything was clean and new-looking, and there was even a mini-fridge. The bathroom was tiled, and again very clean and well-stocked with towels. The bed was comfortable and linens were clean and made from good material. As said in the title, the location is great, right in the middle of town. It's a block off Parkway so you get all the accessibility to the main drag with none of the foot and car traffic. The off-season price also couldn't be beaten. Continental breakfast was furnished, with a few items and coffee. I can't comment on those because pancakes were calling from up the road.

"So Acommodating"

We brought a large group of high schools students here for a senior trip. They did everything to make their experience in Gatlinburg top notch. They helped organize the rooms and keys for rooms and had it all ready when we got there. The kids were able to buy discounted attraction tickets at the front desk. The grab and go breakfast was perfect for everyone to keep on the move. The staff was super friendly and patient with our group. The location is right behind Ober and walking distance to everything. We will definitely be back!

Good price and great location. Easily walked to the parkway multiple times. Also easy access to the park and the trails. Loved the fireplace in the room, which gave it a quaint feel. Perfect spot for a quick stay.

What an amazing weekend we had when my husband and I decided to get away for a few days. I am very picky about staying in just any hotel and after a few days on Trip Advisor looking for the best rate for the best reviews we decided on River Edge Inn. What a great hotel!! It is older but has been remodeled, our room included a beautiful rock gas fireplace which we took advantage of in the cold January nights, the room was very clean , the bathroom includes a separate sink from another vanity located outside the bathroom door. We were on the 3rd floor, the hotel has an elevator. Check in was very easy with a very friendly lady that checked us in. The hotel is in a great location for walking downtown Gatlinburg, we enjoyed walking that morning, came back to the hotel for a rest and walked back that night, and as everyone knows not having to move your vehicle in Gatlinburg is a plus!! Lots of shopping and restaurants all within walking distance!! As our few days sadly came to an end, Jenny at the front desk was very friendly and wished us a safe trip home as we checked out!! Great hotel and would definitely stay here again!!
