We travelled from Scotland to the Great Smokey Mountains, the location is the best in the city of Gatlinburg and the hotel might have been nice in the 70's.

          • The river view is great, loved the location of the hotel is right in the middle of town and the staff is friendly too. The rooms are very clean and are your basic rooms.

            Rude front desk, hot tub and no extra pillows available.

            This hotel is old and dirty, first, the internet access is limited.

          • Great price and location, a wonderful balcony over the river, the exterior of the Resort is a nice looking place &. Lobby is gorgeous, staff is always friendly and rooms are big for a family you are not on top of one another you are in the room.

            Worst hotel ever and rude service. The water just felt dirty and not enough pillows mattress was not very comfortable.

            The hotel is old and bathroom fan sounded like a loud garbage disposal.

          • Convenient to shops and restaurants, the beautiful Smokey Mountains. Very clean place to stay, price were great and exterior light and noise was part of the room. The staff were friendly, beds were comfortable and the breakfast buffet was wonderful and was cheap.

            The hotel was dirty, the bathroom was really dated and small, pillows were thin. The food was not very good and overcooked, one of the pools was closed, unfortunately was the one closest to us.

          • Convenient to shops and clean, we travelled from Scotland to the Great Smokey Mountains, short walking distance to the trolly hub. A pretty good hotel, free WiFi in building 7 seating within the building and the cookies in the lobby are worth the price of the room. The staff is always friendly.

            This place is in bad need of renovation and river Terrace is not as nice at appears on the brochure. Especially bathroom needed to be updated.

          • The location was excellent and the hotel was fairly quiet and comfortable. The price was great and lobby was nice. The staff were very friendly and room was clean.

            Not especially good value for the money and i liked River Terrace Resort wasnt that expensive. The front desk clerk said no, you'll have to pay for tonight, the heat had a nasty smell turned on and the sofa wasn't even big enough for 2 ppl to sit on.

          • The location was great, river Terrace was very nice and the room was very large compared to other newer hotels. Prices were very reasonable also, the staff were friendly and helpful, the beds were ok, not the best, not the worst. The restaurant had a really good breakfast buffet, the heated pool was not all that heated.

            No reliable dining on site, literally bus after bus of loud teens kept pulling in and the atrium building was filthy. The front desk did not have my reservation and bathroom sink was about stopped up. Pillows were not the most comfortable.
