I have stayed a lot of different places in the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area. The Inn on the River is by far the best. The complimentary breakfast is great. Anyone would be making a big mistake if they did not stay here

The rooms were comfortable, and the private balconies were nice. The location was wonderful, as we could walk to many restaurants and some attractions. The staff was courteous and helpful. They accommodated our request to have adjoining rooms with our friends.

Hotel accomodations in Pigeon Forge can be hit or miss, but The Inn On The River is a hit with The Bargain Huntress and myself. Clean rooms, friendly (and helpful) staff, and a good hot breakfast make it the best hotel we've experienced in Pigeon Forge. We hope to go back soon.
