4 Things Guests Always Mention in Our Pigeon Forge Hotel Reviews

Here at The Inn On The River, we love getting feedback from guests…and with over 1,690 TripAdvisor reviews, we’ve had plenty to read! We’ve noticed that certain amenities and features are almost always mentioned in our Pigeon Forge hotel reviews. Read on to see the top four things guests loved about their stay with us:

1. Free Popcorn and Drinks in the Lobby

Our complimentary popcorn and beverages are a big hit with guests! We offer hot chocolate, coffees, and teas 24 hours a day, and Southern-style sweet tea from 2 p.m. – 10 p.m. Freshly popped popcorn is served from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. every evening.  Here is what former guests had to say about our free snacks:

  • “I think my kids’ favorite part of our stay was the free popcorn that was served in the lobby in the evening. We got a couple of bags and hung out in front of the fireplace eating popcorn before bed. We made some great memories!”
  • “The Inn offered free popcorn each night in the lobby starting at 7. The kids definitely looked forward to that. There were also a variety of board games available in the lobby, which sparked an impromptu game night with our kids and the friends they’d made earlier at the pool.”
  • “A refreshing treat in the evenings after being out in the heat was sweet tea, ice water and hot yummy popcorn. Sweet Southern hospitality for sure! We will be back again and again.”

2. Watching the Ducks in the RiverA family of ducks in a river.

Our hotel is located right on the Little Pigeon River, so we get visits from numerous feathered friends! Guests love to watch the ducks, geese, and herons that congregate near our patio. Here are a few Pigeon Forge hotel reviews that mentioned the wildlife at The Inn On The River:

  • “Getting up in the morning and enjoying watching the ducks and geese became a daily ritual, (so relaxing).”
  • “Our patio opened onto the river and the sound of flowing water was so relaxing. We spent lots of time out on that patio watching the ducks (which would walk casually right past us like one of the Inn’s visitors) and the squirrels who ran across the wood rail fence. We awoke Saturday morning to honking. We looked out to find the river completely covered in geese. We tiptoed out quietly and enjoyed their graceful presence.”
  • “We LOVED the covered patio just off of the lobby, facing the river! We loved relaxing in the rocking chairs out there and watching the ducks, geese, squirrels and groundhogs scamper and play.”

3. Our Friendly Staff

At The Inn On The River, we strive to exceed your expectations. Our staff wants you to have the best vacation possible, and we will do everything in our power to make your trip memorable and fun. Here is what TripAdvisor reviewers have said about our employees:

  • “The staff was very friendly and helpful – recommending a number of good restaurants and their recommendations were spot on.”
  • “On Monday morning, the girl working the breakfast area really impressed me. She took time to talk to my 3-year-old and even showed him some toys and games that the hotel keeps stocked in a bookshelf in the lobby. How awesome is that?”
  • “The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. We had a problem with the TV, when I reported it they were there to fix the TV in a matter of minutes.”

Unlike other hotels that only offer a limited continental breakfast, The Inn On The River provides a full hot breakfast for our guests. Featuring Belgian waffles, sausage, fresh fruit, biscuits and gravy, and so much more, our delicious breakfast is the perfect way to start your day. Here are some Pigeon Forge hotel reviews that praised our breakfast:

  • “The daily hot breakfast was great, offering anything you could possibly want to eat, fresh.”
  • “I think our very favorite thing is the delicious breakfast they serve each morning. Biscuits, gravy, sausage, eggs, hash brown potatoes, and a waffle stand with strawberries and whipped cream are just a few things on the breakfast bar.”
  • “The breakfast bar was as good as in any restaurant.”
