The staff was wonderful - you could tell they were proud of their property and that was very refreshing to see. The room was well appointed and clean. The indoor heated pool and Jacuzzi was a refreshing break. The breakfast was ample and fresh and the service attendants were very pleasant. I will stay here again

This was our first stay at Econo Lodge Riverside, but definitely not our last! We were greeted by friendly staff upon our arrival. We were very pleased with our clean, comfortable, quiet room that faced the beautiful river-complete with a walking path and benches to sit & watch the geese. There's even food available to feed them. This Inn is...

Nice hotel...nice indoor pool...decent breakfast...poor internet service. It sits on the river with a beautiful fire pit and picnic shelter. It's close to shopping and restaurants with plenty of parking if you don't mind the ducks and geese. All in all a good place to stay.

My family stayed in this motel for a couple of nights while visiting Pigeon Forge at Christmas. The room was a standard motel room with two queen beds, a table, some lamps, and a microwave and fridge. Other things about the motel made it stand out. When I checked in, the front desk staff showed interest in who I was...

Nice clean motel. Typical or better than typical Econo Lodge. The reviews made me think it might be better. The duck feeding is a memory from the trip we won't forget. The breakfast was free and pretty good. Real eggs for a change. View of the river means you will walk to the pool which is in a weird location....

This is very nice hotel that is clean and is in a great location on the strip. Nothing fancy, but nice and clean. Kids loved the indoor pool and jacuzzi. We were able to walk across the parking lot to the walkway on the river and feed the ducks and geese. Would recommended and will stay again!
