While on a girls road trip, we stayed at several hotels, including brand new and modern. The River Edge Inn completely surpassed every other hotel. The beds were so incredibly comfortable, the room was updated, yet really cute and the staff was super friendly and accommodating. This will be the place I stay at whenever I visit Gatlinburg. Highly recommend.

This hotel is on River Rd off the beaten path but it was very nice!! Rooms have been updated and very comfortable, clean and roomy...loved that there was no carpet!! There was a separate vanity just outside the bathroom in addition to the one in the bathroom that was very convenient when 2 people are getting ready. Nice little balcony overlooking the pool great for early morning and night. Parking was very close to the rooms, elevator was convenient and didn’t have to walk a mile to the ice maker!! All the office and housekeeping staff were very nice and accommodating!! We will definitely be staying at River Edge Inn again when we visit Gatlinburg!!

Love this little hotel in the heart of Gatlinburg. The location is excellent. You can easily walk to some of the best restaurants in town, but it is tucked away from the hustle and bustle on the Parkway. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Their breakfast is perfectly adequate, and included coffee and juices, yogurt, muffins, bagels, sweet rolls and cereal. The pool was sparkling clean, and there was plenty of comfy chairs and even a couple of tables with umbrellas to escape the sun. The rooms have been remodeled and are decorated nicely. All the furniture and fixtures have been redone, right down to the faucets and light fixtures. And did I mention that it is cheaper than most of the neighboring chain hotels? You can't go wrong with River Edge. Happy to find it, and hope to return soon!

We had to suddenly change our destination and hotel 2 days before leaving to have a little family get together and the folks at River Edge Inn were very accommodating. They were still doing a little renovation work when we were there. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is very close to restaurants and the main street in Gatlinburg. With the breakfast offerings, everyone found something they liked.
