Awesome hotel especially for the rates. We've stayed on two separate occasions now for multiple days each visit. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The river/pavilion area in back is great to sit around and relax and feed the ducks and geese if you like.

My husband and I stayed the weekend at Econolodge Riverside and were very pleased with our visit. From the time we checked in until we checked out at the end of the weekend, we felt right at home.

From the time we entered until we left three days later, the staff made this a 9 out of 10 star (if possible) hotel. The breakfast was one of the best in the Comfort Suites chain and we could not think of anywhere else to stay in the downtown area of Pigeon Forge. David Rose should be commended as he...

My husband found this hotel on Expedia.com. Honestly, I was not expecting this hotel to be that great due to reviews that we read online. However, when we got there, the rooms actually looked pretty nice! Very clean! Had a little kitchenette, table, closets, and nice bathroom. Honestly, I wish the rooms had been just a little bit bigger. The...

Excellent front desk service and clean, comfortable accommodations and the free breakfast is heavenly!! Those ladies keep the food fresh, hot, and delicious. Especially the biscuits and gravy. No need to go out for an expensive breakfast. Plus the breakfast room is quite spacious, almost like a cafe or small restaurant so you have plenty of room to sit and...

This is a decent hotel. The rooms are decent and comfortable. The heater in our room was a little noisy, but not so much as to keep either of us awake. The room is well appointed and there was plenty of hot water with excellent pressure. The hotel serves a breakfast with some hot items in the morning and on...
