      The views and the location. Perfect if gong to Aquarium or just shopping.

      The layout of the buildings. Too much uphill walking. No elevators. Fine for younger guests. Terrible for older quests if staying in building #6.

      Honestly the only thing I did like was the lounge area, and Lyold was great. With the problems we had during our stay the staff was excellent in taking care of them.

      I was very dissapointed in the fact that the lobby was so beautiful then getting to our room was disgusting! We switched rooms 2 times. The first room had ants all over in the bathroom, the second room wasn't cleaned by housekeeping and the toilet had some issues working.

      Me and my boyfriend went up to Gatlinburg for a 4 night getaway. This hotel was in a great location and for a great price. We had a very clean room and they had great room service. We had just a few problems like our key for our door wouldn't work but the maintenance took care of it right away. Also our mini refrigerator didn't work but that wasnt a big worry for us. This hotel was definitely worth it and we are definitely looking forward to staying here again :)

      Fantastic location that was within walking distance of most Gatlinburg attractions. The room was very spacious and the balcony offered a nice view of the mountains and downtown Gatlinburg. The hotel staff was also very friendly and helpful.

      The room, bathroom and A/C unit were reasonably clean, but could have been a little better. The bed also was OK, but not as comfortable as the beds in some other local hotels.

      Breakfast buffet was good for the price.

      There were a lot of steps and inclines leading up to the rooms located in the back. I missed not having coffee available in the lobby and no continental breakfast available.

      I have stayed at River Terrace for years and I always come back because the rooms are always clean and comfortable, the staff is always friendly, and I love where it is at, the views of the mountains are great. During this trip I arrived very late about 5 A.M., I had called and alerted the front desk, the gentleman that was working was very nice and friendly. I always feel at home at River Terrace and will continue to come back and stay there.

      Our room had a garden tub. Really enjoyed the two sinks too with ample counter space.

      Poor lighting. The lamps in the room did not light up the room very well. Needed another lamp on the refrigerator side of the room. There was also no way to turn off the night light on the hair dryer to sleep at night. Needed towel bars. two people, four bath towels and one towel bar.

    • Family with children

      The room was quite comfortable and very nice for the amount we paid to stay there. It was very well located. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. I would recommend this establishment to anyone.

      We like the location of the hotel and it was clean and the staff were very friendly. Thanks Bob

      It was a nice place but I did have a couple of things I didn't like, one the mattress on the bed was just terrible it had a big sunkin down area that made you fall to the middle and than we was put in the upper level wher it's very steep to walk. We're both in our 60's with knee replacements so the walk up to out room was terrible and wouldn't do it again. Thanks Bob

      Room, especially bathroom needed to be updated. Not especially good value for the money.

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      Convenient to shops and clean

      Custer service poor. We felt like we were a nuisance as soon as we arrived. Not helpful when we tried a coke machine at night and it was out of order and had to go to lobby iand outside for one in pajamas and raining.the manager acted like he could care less no apology nothing. Also they are not taking care of the place stains on carpets and water spots on ceilings
