Our first family trip to PigeonForge - fabulous! Something for everyone! Spent a ton of money but has a blast. The Inn on the RIver was the perfect location for walking to many attractions - traffic is terrible! Staff was wonderful! Amber was very helpful with whatto do as wellas what NOT to do ;0)
Highly recommend ths for a fun family vacation!

Room Tip: we loved the private balcony!

We stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night during the Grand Spring Rod Run. Although check-in time is normally 3 pm, we stopped in early (around 11 a.m.) and were able to check in early, around 11:30 a.m. Later that night some drunk guys from the Rod Run were yelling and making a lot of noise, so I called the front desk and they were able to stop it.

The hotel is located right on the Pigeon River at stoplight #2. Our room overlooked the river, which was great. We saw a heron, Canada geese, ducks, and a groundhog at the river. Bullfish, Cracker Barrel, Partridge & Pear, and Carino's are restaurants within a short walking distance and there is a Starbuck's just across the street.

The downside items were these:
The beds were a bit hard but we slept all right.
The hot water carafe for tea drinkers had water that tasted like coffee.
Smokers hung out by the front door and along the path by the river so when they were there, we could not be on our balcony while they were there.
The balcony furniture is cheap, faded plastic chairs and a table.
The Rod Run noise was very loud and kept going till at least 4 a.m. when I finally was able to go to sleep. Vehicle emission fumes managed to come in our room somehow although our air unit was off.

I would not advise staying here during the Rod Run because of the noise. I believe there is also one of these in the fall. Otherwise, it is a convenient location and has a pretty view of the river and I would recommend it.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room with a view of the river.

P.F. although on the tacky side served as a base for the Smoky Mtns NP. However The Inn on the River came up trumps. The staff were pleasant & obliging especially Amber & AJ. Room very comfortable & well equipped, light & airy overlooking the river. Breakfast could be a bit of a bunfight for a table but adequate. Pool nearly always full of kids - good for them.
March was just a bit early for shows but the Brew Pub & Mel's Diner were aice diversion

Room Tip: Ask for a river view

My husband and I stayed here March 11th thru March 14th. This was our second time staying here. Both times we could not have ask for a nicer or friendlier staff. Each time we entered the lobby we were always greeted with a smile, Danial was so friendy and helpful on the day we checked out. We have told everyone that plans on a vacation to Pigeon Forge to visit here. The rooms are very clean and we loved the convenience of the location to everything. The staff that put out the breakfast each morning was also very nice.

Room Tip: The riverside view is excellent
