"Little Retreat"
December, 2018
This hotel is really nice. We stayed two nights just for a little get away weekend needing some fun and a break. We had a private balcony and fireplace. The pool and hot tub are amazing. Also it's just a few minutes walk from the main strip. We ate, shopped, and had a great time. The hotel staff was so nice and personable. We will be staying here again for certain.

Tip: Bring your swimsuits and good walking shoes for walking the strip!

"Beware when booking "
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed February 17, 2019 NEW
We booked this trip as a incentive from the gatlinburg chamber to visit properties for possible business meetings. I wish we had been informed when booking that the entire hotel was full of teenagers that weekend. They were loud, rude and slammed doors all hours of the day and night and rudely held meetings in the hallway outside of our room. Details about the property .. Check in was easy and fast. Elevators super slow Stairs are outside The breakfast area was nice and large breakfast choices were typical continental breakfast. The indoor pool was nice but the hot tubs were so hot you could not safely sit in them. Fitness room is two treadmills , one elliptical and one stationary bike. In a very small non vented room. Rooms are dimly lit. Clean. Yet has a very outdated feel. Refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot

"Nice place! Breakfast included!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 12, 2019 NEW
Recently renovated. Very nice rooms with a view. Fireplace in the room rocks! The hot tub is great as well. Hot water the whole time. Great bed and pillows. Breakfast included hot and cold food items. Plus they have a deal where you visit 3 times and get one night free on your 4th visit. All the staff are friendly. A walk across the street to the Gatlinburg stores.

Wonderful, affordable place downtown Gatlinburg. Friendly staff, pool and gym area and free breakfast. I wasn't impressed with the hot breakfast but other options were fine. There are plenty of other eating options in town to ding them for this. Conference area is nice. Will definitely stay here again and recommend.

"Quick Getaway"

Reviewed January 15, 2019
LOVED THIS HOTEL AND LOCATION TO THE STRIP. Right next door is a haunted house, totally worth the admission. Our room was very cozy with our own fireplace and balcony overlooking the mountain. The continental breakfast was better than most and piping hot. The pool is indoor and out door, with an amazing hot tub. I would totally recommend this hotel when staying in Gatlinburg.

We stayed at the Edgewater on business and absolutely fell in love with this hotel, especially the front desk person Crystal! She went so far out of her way to accommodate us and anything we needed was provided! We truly enjoyed the breakfast and the other staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel and I can tell you that my family has found a new hotel while staying in Gatlinburg! Try it and enjoy Smoky Mountain hospitality in its finest!
