2/10 Poor

Don't stay here!
This hotel is old and should be condemned. The toilet was not adequately attached to the ground and rocked back and forth. There were cracks in the floor tile that someone tried to patch with more grout in the middle of the tile. Our room was right by the pool pump which was very loud. And the garbage trucks started coming at 5:00 am.

4/10 Fair

Very Disappointed
It was nothing like we read . Food and bar was closed . Hard time finding parking by your unit. Walk on floors with socks or bare feet and look at them and they We're black. Showers suck 2' of water in tub when showering . Over all for the money not worth it at all . Rather spent my money staying at a hotel.

Last visit to River Terrace not resort
This will likely be our last stay at the River Terrace Resort! Not sure why it’s is even listed as a resort? I booked the “newly renovated river view balcony room”. It was NOT newly renovated, the gas logs did not work, several of the stones around the fireplace were missing, exterior doors had a big gap that allowed a terrible draft. There was absolutely no closet space with only a rack on the wall to hang clothes. The walls appeared to be painted paneling and the bathroom was so tiny it was difficult to even turn around. After prepaying almost $340.00 per night I felt the room should have been MUCH better. The location is great but there are much better Gatlinburg accommodations for half this price.

6/10 Good

Our room was very outdated. The cabinets are from the 70s. The bathroom is really small (small mirror) and the shower had no water pressure. When we got there they told us the restaurant was closed for renovation which was not mentioned when booked. So no breakfast. Only 1 outlet in the small bathroom so you couldn't get really at the vanity. No gym. I could hear the whole conversation in the room next door. Not worth $319 a night. Definitely no river view or fireplace like it shows in the pictures.
The blinds are old and had to be closed one at a time.  Bed was not comfortable.

Meh. Wouldn’t come back
First the good. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The views from the balcony were nice as well. The bad… the amenities were that of a 50$ a night redroof inn… so terrible. It has a tv that barely worked . Basically reminding me of a 80s trailer with a flat screen tv. Also there were numerous stink bugs that kept entering the room. I think I killed 7 during the 3 nights.
