I have stayed at The Edgewater many times. It is always clean, comfy, and a great location. Let me also say that the beds are very comfortable with 4 pillows per bed. The indoor/outdoor heated pool is always clean and open year round. The FREE continental breakfast is slightly different daily, but excellent. One morning they might offer sausage and biscuits and the next morning bacon and eggs, but they always offer waffles, cereal and at least a fruit and doughnut holes or yogurt. I have 2 small kids and they as well as myself were happy with the selection. The staff are very friendly and accommodating to extra towels or toilet paper. It is my favorite affordable hotel in Gatlinburg.

Clean, Cheap and Comfortable

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

Edgewater Hotel was exactly what my friends and I were looking for when we went to Gatlinburg: It was nice, clean, comfortable, reasonably quiet, in the center of town, and most importantly, it was cheap! Gatlinburg sucks enough money out of tourists. We didn't want to waste anything extra on our hotel.

The room was a semi-spacious double bed room with a balcony. It was plenty big enough for the three of us to spread out in. The hotel has its own parking garage, so finding a place wasn't an issue. The staff was excellent, friendly and efficient. The pool and hot tub area was nice enough -- nothing spectacular, but clean, roomy, heated, and well maintained. The pool is both indoor and outdoor, and the hot tub is of average size. There was also free in-room wifi. The location was great! We were able to walk to most of the downtown attractions we wanted to see.

My only complaint was that the free provided breakfast was a little less than generous. There were cold pasteries and juice...and that was about it. This wasn't too much of an inconvenience though, because a big part of the fun in Gatlinburg is indulging in a pancake breakfast in town.

All in all, it was a nice place, and I'd both recommend it and stay there again.

NOTE: We booked through Expedia and got a great rate. No problems at check in.

Unique Quality: The staff was really welcoming and helpful. The rooms were very clean and well kept. The pool was a lot of fun. Even though our room was on the back side, there was a cute little balcony. The main elevator is glass and overlooks the town...that was pretty neat too. ;)

The age requirement for check in is 18, so it's a great place for college kids to stay.

Great website, listed below.

Directions: Directly next to the aquarium, right in the middle of downtown.

Gatlinberg Hotel by the "river" :)

This hotel is well located, close to "downtown" Gatlinberg. It is a minute away from the ski lift area, and a quick 2 min walk gets you to the main street - bustling enough for you to enjoy a weekend and the cool mountain air. There's live music nearby and lots of food!

The hotel itself, is average. The room size is alright - I remember the lighting being pretty dim. However, in Gatlinberg - you dont really spend much time in the room, with all the activity right outside.

They have plenty of parking at this hotel.

I did like the fact that there was a little stream right outside the hotel. It made for a pleasant walk by that side.

The staff at the front desk will answer your questions about what to do and how to get there. They were nice and quite helpful. We were there on a long weekend, and they even told us the best time and route to leave the city so that we could beat the traffic.

All in all - as a hotel - it's average. The service was friendly and helpful.

Unique Quality: That rivulet outside the hotel. Also, there is a "house of horrors" or mystery mansion type of set-up,right next door - for those who like that.

It is located very well, albeit 2 mins off the main street.

The Edgewater is an excellent hotel located 1/2 block of the main strip in Gatlinburg. The rooms were extremely clean, the hotel well-maintained. The indoor/outdoor pool & hot tubs were enjoyed by my family.

The staff of the Edgewater went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had what we neede. Extra towels, shampoo, coffee...no problem.

Since we were there in the winter season, the covered parking was excellent. Yes, the parking is tight. But I'd rather squeeze in a spot than be exposed to cold rain.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who'd like to go to Gatlinburg.

Directions: As you enter Gatlinburg from Pigeon Forge, fork right onto River Road at Ripley's Aquarium. The Edgewater is on your right past the River Terrace.
