We pulled up and realized we had stayed here 10 years ago when it was under a different name.

The changes were excellent and even though we didn't spend much time in the hotel for our one night it was relaxing.

The view of the river also comes with the restaurant next door but early morning no one is about. The fire pit is relaxing and the cocoa hit the spot.

Breakfast was nice s but we were there same time a large tour group was finishing so even the large area was filling up to the point four ladies asked my spouse if he was done as they wanted our table.

Thank you so much for taking time to review our property,exceptionally since it had been so long since you had stayed with us. It is nice to know our work towards continual improvements doesn't go unnoticed. The river is indeed very peaceful and relaxing early in the morning. You are almost certain to see the ducks and geese starting their day! I am sorry to hear the breakfast area was a bit crowded but glad you enjoyed the breakfast. We hope it is not another 10 years before you come see us again.

My wife and I had a nice 3 night stay at The Inn On The River. We especially liked the personal touch provided by the breakfast staff. The country ham and biscuits was a big hit; very tasty! Our room was on the river side and the ducks and geese may be an issue for some, but we enjoyed their noisy arrival each morning. We were in room 138 and the bathroom could probably stand to be renovated soon, but overall the room was just fine. The best part of this hotel is the location close to the intersection with highway 321. This is the “shortcut” to Cades Cove in GSMNP. This is by far the best way to get to Cades Cove and staying at The Inn On The River made it all the better. I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing a nice hotel in Pigeon Forge.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Everyone seems to really like the country ham at breakfast, it is a relatively new item so we appreciate your feedback. I am also glad you mentioned the bathrooms, they are on our renovation list and hopefully will be updated before your next visit. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon.

This is the first but not the last time I'll stay at this hotel. The breakfast in the morning was one of the best that Pigeon Forge hotels have to offer. The rooms are very clean an very comfortable. With a mini fridge and coffee maker. The staff is very helpful. They offer every night free popcorn and drinks along with fresh fruit in the hotel lobby.

Room Tip: Try if you can to get a room with a view of the little Pigeon River. And the beds are very comfortable.

Extremely nice, clean rooms with top quality bedding. Has a great breakfast bar-lots of different options for various tastes and diets. Very enjoyable large fire pit and most of all has wonderful staff who are very attentive to guests needs and and requests. Would definitely recommend to anyone to make their stay in Pigeon Forge that much more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river are very calming as you hear the water and waterfowl.
