Positive Reviews

Close to the downtown area.

One thing guests enjoy is the ability to park their vehicle and take in so much of the area on foot. With its location right off the main strip, this accommodation is in a prime spot for tourists to take in downtown attractions or nature lovers to enjoy the nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Set in a quiet area.

The River Edge Motor Lodge is near many attractions, yet it is still placed in a fairly quiet area of Gatlinburg. With such a peaceful setting it helps guests relax while staying at this accommodation.

Guests feel like they are staying at home.

People who stay at the River Edge Motor Lodge often feel like they are staying at a friend's house, or even their own. This is due in large part to the warm service provided by staff members and the comfortable beds; all for a bargain price.

Negative Reviews

Accommodation is in need of modernization.

As one of the older hotels in the area, this accommodation is really starting to show its age. Furnishings in many of the guestrooms are in need of being replaced, and facilities such as the bathrooms could use some modern touches.

Breakfast is not very appealing.

Starting the day with a good meal requires visitors of this lodge to look for breakfast elsewhere. What is offered has a minimal selection and items are often served cold when they shouldn't be.

Rooms need a more thorough cleaning.

Guestrooms at the River Edge Motor Lodge are often in need of a more thorough cleaning. Carpeting and bed sheets often feel dirty, and more time needs to be spent cleaning bathroom fixtures to meet guest expectations.
