One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at in my life. It was perfect for getting away and having peace and quiet after a night on the towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The rooms were fantastic. Very, very clean and proper. Kudos to every member of the custodian team for their great work. The Rivergate Inn was...

When you booked your online reservation thru orbitz you booked a family friendly room with 2 queen beds which are on our first floor. Nowhere on any site does it indicate that roses, wine or godiva come with that room type. Only our king jacuzzi rooms come with fresh flowers and godiva not the room type you booked. We also...

My better half and I stayed here two nights for my birthday. Everything promised on the hotel website is what you get. The beds are great. We heard no noise, eventhough we were there on a weekend. The flowers I got were lovely. The lady in charge even left a small birthday cake in my room. What a sweet touch....

After many trips to the Smokies over the last 13 years - and never staying at the same place twice - we have already booked this hotel for our stay in November.
