River Edge is taking pride in their renovations, our room was beautiful and felt like home. The location is great for walking all over downtown but quieter than being on the main street. The 3 ladies we encountered at the desk had genuine smiles and tones and really seemed to ca

This was our 8th year to stay here. The hotel has undergone renovations, but kept the charm. We love the location; great restaurants & shopping are a short walk away. The hotel staff are very helpful & friendly.

Do you have handicap parking close to room? We will be staying in a king room from October 29 to November 1st.
That would depend on which room you are staying in. Some rooms closer to office are a distance to elevator . Parking is not assigned to rooms so having a handicap space wouldn’t really help in regards to the room. I think all hotels have handicap parking but this is a small place so I’m not sure how many spaces could be marked for that. I would definitely ask that question prior to booking .

How close is this location to the downtown strip area? On same street, a street over ,or do you have to drive to reach it? Has the downtown area been rebuilt since the fire?
It’s back behind the strip, on River rd! Quiet area and only a 5 min walk to strip! We kept the truck parked at the hotel and walked unless we needed out of Gatlingburg! Yes! It’s rebuilt, most hotels are renovating from the fire!

Here on TripAdvisor this hotel has, fkr the most part, very good reviews but on Trivago it does not. It has a 7.1 out of 10 which is not very good at all and this is out of over 700 reviews. Who do I believe? I was ready to book this weekend until I read the Trivago reviews. Anyone? Thank you.
The room we stayed in had been completely remodeled. There was no carpet which was great. We loved staying here and will stay there again.
