Nestled at the bottom on the hills. The hotel is an easy walk to the main st. The room was clean and large. Beds comfortable. Air con works well even though a bit noisy. Bonus microwave in the room. Room furnishings area bit dated. A continental breakfast is offered but is very minimal.

The Location is perfect. in the middle of Gatlinburg within walking distance to everything!! The only downfall is there is only 2 elevators and it takes forever to get up or down. The views are great the pool is great for the kids. Overall for the price and location we would definitly stay here again!!!

I highly recommend Edgewater Hotel. It was very clean and the staff was very nice and helpful. I had bought my granddaughter a toy from the Paula Dean store and we could not get it open. We took it down to the front desk and that young man got a pair of scissors and opened it for my granddaughter. She was so happy and excited that he did that for her. He went above and beyond his job. We were very thankful. It was nice that everything was within walking distance and you didn't have to take your vehicle out of the parking garage and find some where to pay and park. We will definitely be back and we are recommending Edgewater to everyone we know . Thank you so much for the wonderful experience we had staying there.

Clean rooms and very accommodating. Every employee we came in contact with was very friendly and helpful. It is an older hotel, but price was very reasonable for it being located on the river and within easy walking distance of the aquarium. Beautiful view of the mountains too from our room (located on 6th floor). Will return.

Have stayed here many times with the Bible Quizzing group. Rooms are nice and very sufficient for our needs. Conference rooms work out great for our group’s needs. Restaurants close by and food is good. Fun is to be had all around. Parks are nice to drive through. Already look forward to our 2019 trip.
