My husband and I found the Edgewater Hotel to be out of touch with 2018! Our view was horrible, it was in the rear of the hotel and it was horrible, the furnace ran constantly and when it was on, it was so loud we could not hear each other talk, the room had no room for anything and was so outdated! There was not a table to set my lap top on, only 1 chair in the room, so someone had to sit on the bed at all times, the elevator was so slow that we wasted most of our time waiting on it, breakfast was the same everyday and not very good, the parking was terrible and some were so rude, as to take up 2 spaces, so parking was very limited. The ice machine did not work and we were there for several days, you would think it could have been fixed in a day or two! So disappointed and would have moved to another hotel, but other hotels could not help us for the nights we were staying! Lesson learned, not staying there again!

We have stayed in many hotels in Gatlinburg over the years but we decided to try Edgewater this time.... It was a great decision and we loved this hotel. Clean and close to Parkway, the Jacuzzi room was very nice. Really the only problem is the elevators are kind of a pain in the busy morning but it was no big deal just had to wait. Parking can be kind of tight on the 2 levels but we made the best of it. Overall we will definitely be back to Edgewater hopefully soon!!!!

Clean friendly...very convenient to everything. First time staying . Would highly recommend Edgewater. Spacious rooms clean..and we had a fireplace! Pool area was a hit with the grandkids.Clean and very spacious. Breakfast was standard....could use fresh fruit. Would highly recommend Edgewater to others.

"Not Quite Up To Par"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

It's been awhile since I'd stayed at the edgewater, and I took advantage this last trip to get a queen room with jacuzzi. Unfortunately, the jacuzzi was not operational, the bed was clearly a full size, and the room felt extremely damp. This wasn't due to humidity, believe me. The staff is very friendly, and the place is clean enough (though they could do with replacing their towels - hair was stuck to one but it was so entwined it couldn't have been removed through simple washing). All in all, a little disappointing. I had been expecting a river view room, but realize with busy weekends that sort of thing isn't a guarantee.

Excellent place. Loved the room and complimentary breakfast. Great location and staff. Only complaint is parking deck spots are too tight. We will be back soon. Location is great and walking distance from parkway.
