It was in need of a little updating but our view of the river road was great on our balcony. It was walking distance to everything downtown if you like to walk. If not a trolley stop was near. We quickly could walk to everything as long as you walked from river road. The free breakfast wasn't fancy but had... More

We have continued to stay here due to the cleanliness, location, competitive prices and the friendly staff. We have already booked our New Year's Weekend while on our Anniversary weekend so we will definitely be back soon.

I went in not expecting much, because we got a good value, but it was rough. We payed $89/night for a $29/night experience. The outlets and switches were from 1960, so hair products, chargers, etc don't stay plugged in. Theres minimal hot water (you share the same heater as other guests). The bathroom had LOTS of black drain flies, and... More

I will never stay at this hotel again. The ceiling above the shower was falling in and had black spots on it. We had no hot water both mornings. The first morning there was so little hot water I could not take a shower, I just washed off with a rag and put my hair up. The free wifi should... More

The hotel staff are incredibly friendly while being quick and efficient at what they do. The breakfast room is small with limited choices for the continental breakfast, but who can complain when it's clean and free! The rooms are dated, but they are a decent size, clean, and quiet. It's a motor lodge, it's not a 5 star hotel. For... More

We booked one night at the River Edge Motor Lodge on Veteran's day weekend, the staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was great, so close to everything but off the main, busy, downtown street. The only negative thing is that the shower head in the bathroom needed to be... More

My best friend and I decided to do a road trip to Gatlinburg. We couldn't ask for a more helpful staff. We were lost on the highway late at night. The front desk clerk gave us great directions.

The hotel staff was very friendly but this hotel is in desperate need of a remodel. My husband and I took cold showers the first couple of days because the hotel was full and apparently they only have one hot water heater and cannot handle a full hotel. The beds were uncomfortable and our room wasn't clean when we arrived.... More

We had stayed multiple times because we liked the location & the beds were comfortable, although the motel is quite rundown. This trip, my driver's license & credit card were copied, even though I had booked online & despite my objections. That had not been done in the past. I was very uncomfortable about it because my credit card number... More
