I have stayed here several times, never disappoints me. The only complaint I have is the motorcycle noise, but they are usually pretty reasonable in the times they rev them etc. The owner is always making improvements, the place looks great. Clean, neat and just right for me and my wife.We will be back.

Christys is a great motel to stay at while snowmobiling in Old Forge. Convenient location, gas and snacks right across the street and the rooms are updated and comfortable. Thanks to Steve and his staff for the daily trail reports and webcam during the winter season.

Hi nicajmar, Sounds like you hit it just right for a great weekend of riding. Besides the short melt down we had in Jan. the season was a pretty good one. Thanks for the review and hope to see you again this upcoming winter season, Steve More

My boyfriend and I usually stay in Blue Mountain over the New Year holiday but the place we usually stay did not have the 5 nights that we wanted available so I searched Trip Advisor for something nearby.

I find that most of the time I'm writing reviews, I tend toward either glowing or scathing. Christy's is the first time I have felt a solid 3-4/5 was thoroughly appropriate. In fact, I bounced back and forth between 3 and 4 as I wrote this. My fiance and I stayed in room 13, if memory serves, in September 2013.... More

Rooms seem to have been recently remodeled, the carpet and paint looked new. It's a nice place and conveniently located. The pool was closed for the season, but I'm sure in the summer it is great.

Hi mrscleo, From time to time we have a few deer stop by and take a nightly nap against the pool fence. They must feel safe or something when they do it, because it happens often. Thanks for taking the time to post a review, Steve More

Nothing fancy here, but it has everything you need. Clean, pleasant, spacious rooms, nice pool. Steve, the owner, was friendly and welcoming and as someone else noted, it's biker friendly - he has a supply of wood squares to put under kickstands (thereby protecting our bikes AND his parking lot). Good location, not too far from downtown Old Forge but... More

This was our second year staying at Christy's. The rooms are clean, it's close to everything, and the kids were so excited to see the deer in the morning! Kids also really enjoyed watching the movie outside in the evening. Reasonably priced - we will be back next year!

Hi lar729, Thanks for returning to Christy's and the Old Forge area for your family vacation. It's fun doing those little extra things for the kids and hearing them enjoy it. But I do have to say I can't take credit for the deer. Thanks for taking the time to post a review, Steve More
