The absolute best location! Walk straight across the walkway bridge and you're in the heart of everything downtown Gatlinburg has to offer. You don't have to move your care which is a huge plus when traffic is bad. The breakfast was really good. Had a variety of hot and cold items. The 2 indoor hot tubs were nice but the indoor pool is quite small. The beds were comfy and rooms very clean. This hotel has a parking deck under the hotel which is nice if it's raining (like it was when we were packing to leave). I really loved the location. It's convenient and right on the river which makes for a beautiful view. We were there with a large group and the meeting space was fantastic! We will be back!

This was the last time I’ll book this hotel. We stayed 5 nights and every night we had to deal with noise. The walls are paper thin evidently. We could hear complete conversations from the next room. At one point in the early morning hours, I woke to people running and laughing in the hallway. Do not book a room on the back side, you’ll never sleep due to the loud people at the pool. The only good things were its proximity to the main strip and free parking.

Great location, very convenient within walking distance of the attractions of Gatlinburg! Comfortable accommodations, newly renovated heated pool and guest areas. Breakfast included WOW and easy accessible free parking. The seasoned staff makes a guest feel welcomed and appreciated. I recommend The Edgewater Hotel over and above anywhere else in Gatlinburg!

Clean room, friendly staff, nice breakfast, decent price and a short walk to the main street. Liked the microwave and fridge. Enjoyed the Jacuzzi but a bit warm for the fireplace. One draw back is the tight parking garage. Also might be nice to have staff that are familiar with restaurant recommendations.
