Not a bad motel but not great either. We just need a place to crash and just pulled into the first one we noticed. It did the trick but the beds are very uncomfortable and leave you with a stiff back. My husband took a shower then walked across the carpet with bare feet and they were BLACK!

Rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. We got a two bedroom suit and they knocked $10 off our stay. Nice motel if your looking to relax or enjoy the sights. I would recommend staying here to anyone

This was my second time staying at Riverside Motor Lodge and I was not disappointed from check-in to check-out. The room was clean and well kept for an older establishment, the in room refrigerator came in handy and the jacuzzi was very refreshing. I would recommend the hotel to anyone needing a nice quiet getaway.

We stayed at Riverside at a last minute decision due to Hurricane Matthew. The room decor was dated as others have mentioned, but our room wasn't run down looking, but well kept. It was very clean, the beds were super comfy and we could walk to Food City (grocery store) next door if you wanted to cook in, as it...

We made an unexpected trip to pigeon forge for our anniversary over fall break. Due to the time of year and people evacuating the hurricane, all of the online hotel finders said everything was booked up. We took a chance anyway and headed down without a hotel reservation. We stopped at Riverside motor lodge just to see if there was...

We had been let down from a cabin rental where they switched us to a different cabin that turned out to be a dump. Called several places over about 3 hours on this busy weekend, everyone was booked or had something too small for the three of us, (myself, my wife and her mother). We saw the vacancy sign here...

We stayed here two nights because it was all we could find available on a short notice. We were told we would have a jacuzzi suite. For $150 a night, I thought it would be nice. It was terribly dated and appeared dirty. The jets on the jacuzzi didn't work and we were assured after the first night that maintenance...
