"Surprisingly very nice"

When we pulled up and saw the outside of the Inn, we were worried about what the room would look like. The outside is very dated and not in great shape. It was a surprise when we walked in and the room was a nice size, had been recently updated, and had a really cute cabin theme to it. The bathroom wasn't very big but had also been updated and it was clean. Very nice staff and they followed COVID-19 protocol.

It’s all about location! We love staying at Rivers Edge Inn. For us, it is the perfect location..... Just off the main drag of downtown Gatlinburg and a close walk as well. We love spending time at the pool and it is always clean and open to plenty of sunshine.
