The accommodations were nice, however the breakfast room was too small. With the tour buses, we were not able to take advantage of the continental breakfast. All tables were full and nowhere to sit. Very disappointed that we weren't able to take advantage of perks even though we paid as much or more for our room than the bus people did. Will check to make sure they aren't going to be there before booking again.

The only comment I might have probably can't be changed. It was difficult to get luggage from car to room because of the parking arrangements. Otherwise, all was fine.

Housekeeping staff were EXCELLENT workers. All other staff were friendly and helpful. Only down side was the morning breakfast was good, but nothing ever changed. Same all week!! My husband loves fruit, but allergic to pineapple and every day was pineapple as a choice. A variety every day or two would be great.

I have stayed at this location many times with my family and have always been happy but this time our room smelled like dirty feet and the bed was uncomfortable.

Very nice hotel. We were greeted by very friendly staff. The hotel was clean and well kept. The breakfast food was good. Very convenient to all local attractions. We loved the creek and fire pit in the back. We will definitely stay here again.

I chose this hotel based on the fact that a tmanager reviewed the customer comments. That was a first for me and indicated that they cared what the customer thought of their services. Booking was made through Booking .com which was helpful and we got a room at a good price during an extremely busy time of the iyear. The room had two queen beds and table with two chairs. The room was tiny and with all the furniture you could hardly move around. if you had mobility issues that could be a real problem. I was very impressed with the cleanliness. The room although tiny looked as though it had just been updated. There was a kitchenette in the bathroom ready area which was nice for fixing our morning coffee. I assumed that they provided daily room tidy services. We stayed two nights and our room was never touched. We called twice and was given the run around by staff both times. One staff person stated that they had had trouble with that for awhile! Not something a guest should hear if you want repeat business. The breakfast was ok, the same everyday, no variance. The line was out the door both days. I am sure it is hard to prepare for that many people in such a limited kitchen area. The river and grounds are very pretty however whoever though having ducks and geese for people to feed did not think about the poop generated . there was so much poop on the walkway that you could not enjoy the view for fear of stepping in it. Little kids were running and would step in it thus poop all over their shoes thus tracking it back into the hotel or their cars!!. All in all, the facilities are fine if you do not spend a lot of time there,which in this area is nit a problem as there is so much to do and see. I would definitely stay here again.

This place is really fantastic! The new river walk area has ducks and geese you can feed which really makes it tranquil and easy to relax. Also the grounds are kept very clean and felt comfortable all over. Very well thought out cookout areas and pavilion with benches. Complete hot breakfast was a nice value as well! We had a king poolside room. Any poolside room seems to have no windows other than the one that faced the indoor pool, which makes the room dark and closed -in feeling so if you need light, don't get a poolside room! Also lots of echoing noise from kids playing in it and I didn't like feeling that people could stare in our room. Next time we will get a river view room so no issues. I like that the room had a tiny prep area for food but all in all the room felt cramped even for Two. My husband and I both have back issues and didn't get much sleep because of the mattress. Mattress seemed really nice and comfy til we went to sleep so not quite sure what the issue was. We would definitely consider staying here again!

We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room, and the room was quiet despite the hotel being sold out. Nice river walk and picnic tables out back.

There is no other Econolodge like this one anywhere. Amazingly clean,completely refurbished, full hot breakfast bar,indoor heated pool,kiddie pool hot tub jacuzzi among the least. Great comfy beds with lots of pillows and housekeeping everyday. Staff, as always friendly on phone calls with lots of questions to onsite just the same. Rooms come standard with micro/fridge and in room coffee pot,coffee, disposable coffee cuts w/lids. Don't forget to try Huck Fins Restaurant just down the road on right same as hotel and get your fudge at Old Country Mill Candy Kitchen. Buy one pound of fudge get half pound free. No coupon necessary!!! Met all of our accommodations plus some. Incredible experience for my husband and I that haven't had a vacation in years. God blessed us with this particular Econolodge that was recommended by our daughter that had stayed there 2-3 mo prior and also went again at same time as we did again. They rented a 2 room family room which was incredible and slept 6. Their baby slept in a pack and play in their room.I cannot say enough nice things about Econolodge Riverside. One last thing....behind hotel was the Little Pigeon River. Loaded with ducks and geese everywhere and pigeons if you don't run those off. There were food dispensers placed all around with corn to feed ducks and geese. New fire pit brand new in place and grills all around rivers edge and gazebo with picnic tables.

This was a beautiful place to stay. I loved being within walking distance of The Christmas Place. It was beautiful by the river and I enjoyed feeding the ducks. Rooms were so pretty. The breakfast was absolutely delicious!! We will definitely be coming to stay there again as we travel there several times a year.
