The beautiful Edgewater Hotel & Conference Center offers 205 rooms with a private balcony with stunning Gatlinburg views. The hotel features standard king rooms or two double beds. Upgrade to a suite that delivers more square footage and a separate living area. Some rooms boast a fireplace or Jacuzzi.
All rooms come with a mini-fridge, a microwave, and a coffee maker. You’ll receive a complimentary breakfast each morning, free Wi-Fi, and free parking.
Kids will love the family game room and arcade, and the indoor pool. The property also has whirlpools and a fitness center.
One note: the Edgwater Hotel’s website is a little tricky to navigate. Look under “about” and you’ll find the information about the hotel rooms and the amenities.
The Edgewater Hotel is 9.8-miles to Dollywood, six-minute walk to The Village Shops, six-minute walk to Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, 2.4-miles to Wild Bear Falls (indoor water park), three-miles to Historic Ogle Log Cabin, and 1.6-miles to the Gatlinburg Sky Lift. Done.

Was there in October, booked a handicapped room, pictures show the room has a non tub, shower, since it was handicapped, nope, it had a tiny hard to get in to tub. Room 826. The hotel said it was remodeled, recently, this room sure didn't look like it. The wifi was horrible, and non existant most of the time. Parking was horrible. Won't be back.
We have stayed here multiple times over the years. Best location there is, within walking distance to everything Gatlinburg has to offer. Great friendly staff, best rewards program ever. Now the bad-worst elevators in history and the only thing worse is the parking situation. Extremely small and limited spaces. Average but dated room with comfortable beds. We will probably continue to stay here as the goods still out way the bass.
