Highest priced beer in Gatlinburg! $5.50 for a bottle Miller Lite! The breakfast buffet was ok I like staying there but have to go across street to have a beer. The rooms are dated but very large and clean.

We loved our room. It was older, and appeared to be still being renovated. But, it was clean, there were no issues like peeling paint or anything of that nature. The bathroom appeared to have already been renovated. I would call River Terrace and speak with them directly. They were very accommodating when we were there. As I speculated in my review, I think since the negative reviews were before a change of management.

"If you pick the upstairs, it is quite a haul to walk. Stairs and two huge hills."
"Foor a good room,, dont stay here."
