Pros. On the plus side, the price was the lowest in Pigeon Forge. It was clean, and the temperature was fine. Had hot water the first of our three day stay.

Cons. Place is in severe need of an upgrade, as everything is falling apart. The card key didn't work and I needed assistance. The main light did not work, and although I was told it would be fixed the next day, it hadn't been when I left two days later. The tub faucet was so loose that it almost came off in my hand. Shower was tepid at best on days 2 and 3.

Pros. The location on the strip was convenient

Cons. We had the AC running since we walked in the door (3pm) until we got back that night (10pm) and it was still very hot in the room. We didn't sleep very much because of how hot it was. The staff are very nice but the language barrier is a bit rough. The tv remote did not have batteries and they wouldn't bring us any. Cell service is unheard of also.

Pros. geese were cute . Motel was easy to find on main strip.

Cons. hairdryer didn't work. desk chair had huge coffee stain. Motel has limited parking if they had been close to full we would not have had a parking space. I don't know where we would have had to park.

Pros. My daughter had a field trip in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area, and this was one of the lowest priced hotels that had decent reviews. We checked in on Friday evening and our cards didn't work. The desk clerk was very helpful, came up and let us in the room and remade the cards for us. The room was clean and warm, it had good water pressure in the shower.

Cons. It was 40 bucks - I wasn't expecting luxury, just a place to sleep and shower. The freezer part of the min-fridge was very dirty and the only reason I'm even noting it is because we had to store some medicine in the fridge and I had to refreeze ice packs. In addition, the remote didn't work to change the volume on the TV - we only watched TV for about 20 minutes before going to sleep, so it wasn't a huge deal. Otherwise, I don't have any complaints about it, and the only really negative thing of note was that when we came back from dinner on Friday night, there were police officers there for another room and it scared my 10-year-old daughter, although that's not anything that the River Place Inn could have helped.

Pros. I like the location and the fact that I had a private balcony that over looked the creek..my kids loved standing on the balcony and watching the geese..

Cons. The room could've been cleaner..the next morning I went to take a shower and when I got done and picked the towel up and unfolded it to dry off there was a wad of hair in it! I picked up another towel and unfolded it and it had pubic hair in it!! So there I stood with no towel and my husband and 3 kids waiting to take a shower..we couldn't get anymore towels because they only allow 4 towels,4 wash cloths and 4 hand towels..the bad part is I really have this thing about hair and it being someone else's made it 100 times worse!! Good thing we were going straight home that morning because no one other than me got to shower!

Pros. The motel is in a great location. It also offers a river view filled with geese.

Cons. Room was still kind of dirty. Refrigerator didn't work. Blood stains on the pillows. Hair dryer didn't work and faucet water smelled as if it came straight from the river.
