Me and my husband stayed there for the week of thanksgiving. We have never stayed here this was our first time. The hotel we always stayed at was booked so my husband booked the week here. This is one of the cleanest hotels we have stayed in. It was awesome. The room we stayed in was on the 2nd floor....

My wife and I found this gem of a place by accident and we are so glad we did! Mrs. Pat, the owner, welcomed us and made us feel like family from the start. She is a wonderful lady and was extremely helpful. We stayed in a king room with a Jacuzzi and it was great. The room was very...

We always look forward to spending some quality time at the Rivergate Mountain Lodge. Once again, we were not disappointed! We were saddened to hear Mrs. Maples, the owner had just recently lost her husband, Mr. Fred Maples. Over the years of visiting here, we always looked forward to visiting with him and his little dog. Very good location, right...

We stay here every year for the Shades of the Past Car Show. I have stayed at very expensive hotels when I was working that was not as clean as the RiverGate.

Very good location. Right in the heart of Pigeon Forge. The room was very dated. The beds are uncomfortable. When one turns over you wake the other. The air conditioner made a lot of noise. When it geared up it shook the walls. The bedspread was very heavy. WiFi was barely there. Got slower and slower. The toilet was tiny....

We checked in on the 2nd of July and met the owner Pat at check- in. She is a very nice person. Our room was very clean. You would had think that being located in front of a go kart track would be noisy, but it was not. The room is very soundproof. I would recommend this hotel to everybody....
