The Inn On The River

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a hidden gem in the midst of downtown Gatlinburg. There may be bright lights, and craziness in the this town but The Inn is situated on a gorgeous looking little river. It was so nice to be able to sit in the rocking chairs they have their and enjoy a nice cup of tea and look out to the water. The hotel was quiet and very, very clean. I felt right at home from the minute we were welcomed in. A must go if you are traveling through Gatlinburg.

This hotel has the absolute worst location. You will be disappointed if you like to be in the center of everything. We thought with the Breakfast Buffet that was offered, we would save some money. We were wrong. If you don't like to wait to get a seat or don't like to compete with bus tours, you will not be able to take advantage of the bar. As far as cleanliness, it was pretty clean until you get to the stained mattress! Yuck! Ever heard of mattress covers? For the money and location, go with Margaritaville Hotel at the Island!!!!!

Nice hotel with very good breakfast, comfortable rooms and great service.

Very friendly and welcoming staff great patio area for breakfast

Very nice hotel, with good views and friendly people

We really enjoyed our stay here. Employees were friendly and very helpful to whatever our needs were. Even if it was just a question. Rooms kept neat, clean and were comfortable. The hot breakfast was better than a lot of restaurants we've eaten at. Loved their gravy! Kids there loved both pool areas. Loved the rest area outdoors every morning for breakfast. Even the wildlife there. We will always stay here when we come back!

We had a good experience at this hotel. We didn't have any problems with anything, even though there were a lot of people there and it was very busy. It wasn't too noisy, the elevators were fine, they had enough breakfast and places to eat it, we had a place to park, etc.

Our stay is very comfortable. The room is clean and bed is comfortable. The service is great. I will definitely go back at this hotel.

Had a great time here. One of my favorite vacations

Breakfast buffet was delicious! View was awesome! Great quality hotel for the price. We've stayed here many many times we love it here. Very clean and modern.

great hotel, great breakfast, great location, had fun feeding the ducks

There is an INDOOR POOL. Very nice breakfast selection. Will go back there again.

Hotel was nice and clean. Would recommend to anyone staying in the pigeon forge area.

Hotel has a good continental breakfast although crowded from 9 to 10 am. Impressed with the Bath and Body Works shampoo, shower gel and lotion. Keurig coffee maker is handy. Nice bathroom. Second time at this hotel and I enjoyed it as much as the first time.

The place was nice and the staff was very friendly. The location was good except that there was only one way in and one way out. When leaving the property you had to make a U-turn about a half mile away to go the other direction which was difficult sometimes. The breakfast was hot and pretty good, but no pastries or fruit that was normal like apples, bananas, or oranges. There could be more tables for seating at breakfast dining, but all in all it was a good experience.

would have been better if our room was on the river side. Our only view was of the parking lot. Smoke free was a plus and the smoking area was away from the doors.

Everything was excellent. Had one problem with the door not locking and they quikly responded and replaced the lock. Will stay again.

Other than above, the rest was very clean. The food was great but not enough was cooked for the many that showed up at one time. But we would stay there again. Traffic was so bad, it took us over an hour to get to places we wanted to go. It was just a bad weekend to go. We should have waited till all schools were back in session. Hotel staff was fabulous!
