My family has been staying here for more than 15 years and have never had a bad experience. We bring the kids and grandchildren here every year, it is a clean and well maintained place...you could not ask for a better value in the smokes. The restaurant here has some of the best eating in the area.... It just would...

Just completed another stay at Riverstone. This makes the 4th year we have stayed here. It is a throw back vintage hotel with clean room and friendly staff. We really enjoyed sitting around the campfire and talking and singing with other guests. Being a pet friendly hotel is a bonus. Looking forward to going back soon.

i Went here in December after Christmas it was cold but really nice. my family and i got a two story cabin and it was amazing. The scenery around was so beautiful. And it was really quiet there so i slept very well. and there is a lot to see and visit near the Riverstone Lodge .

My stay was disappointing after reading the reviews. Pros: easy, friendly check-in, mini-fridge, in-room coffee maker, microwave, plenty of towels, comfortable bed, quiet and good food beside Lodge. Cons: walk around pool to get to room was difficult with rolling luggage on the stone drive, slight musty smell in room, a few flies and several spiders in the room (left...

This was my first stay at Riverstone. The room was very clean and comfortable. My only concern was an adjoining room with a door that had no lock on my side (although the desk clerk assured me it was locked and not accessible from the other side). The price was very reasonable.

Ok, this is definitely one of those "hole in the wall" places. Very small place with very good homestyle cooking. The young waitress was a delight and very on top of refills, condiments, etc. this place is the kind of place you will funny being dressed up, so come as you are. We drove out of our way to come...

We have been visiting Riverstone Lodge for years now. The owners and staff treat you like family. The lodge is very peaceful, clean and a quiet place to visit. Nightly campfires to roast hot dogs or marshmallows or just to visit with others at the lodge. A 10% discount given at their restaurant when staying at the lodge, just show...

My room was dirty, and had bugs. The door to the adjoining room did not have a lock on it!! Proprietor said that they could not enter my room and not to worry about it. I moved a dresser in front of the door. I wish I had stayed at the Best Western.

Riverstone Lodge is the type of place you should be looking for when you go to the Smokies. Rustic outside, nice big lean room with all the amenities inside. Great staff. Convenient to the river and local sites.
