The River Terrace is made up of five or six different buildings. All of the buildings from the outside are in very good shape, looking freshly painted and well-maintained. The main entrance to the hotel is over a small covered bridge. The lobby is very nice with a fireplace, and they also had hot-spiced apple cider for the guest to enjoy around the fire.
The building we were staying in was in the back up on a hill. The driveway going up to the building was very steep, and even though we had no trouble getting up and down it, I would not want to try it if it was snowy or icy out. They have plenty of parking, so that is not a problem. We were able to park right in front of our room, which made unloading and loading the car real easy.
The room was larger than most hotel rooms that I have stayed in, and was clean. It was starting to show its age though, especially in the bathroom where the flooring needed to be replaced and some of the fixed flooring could us replacing. But overall it fit our needs as we were only using it as a place to sleep for the most part.
Our main reason for choosing the River Terrace was price and location, just up the street about 150 yards from the aquarium and across the street from the Mountain Mall. This placed it pretty much in the middle of Gatlinburg, enabling us to walk to a lot of the attractions and not have to worry about having to drive and find a parking space.
They also have two outdoor pools on-site, but due to the time of the year we decided not to use them. There is also a small self-serve laundry on-site.
