Reviewed 6 October 2016 via mobile

Older than it looks at first glance, this property has been nicely updated. Clean , comfortable, friendly staff. Upstairs Hallway was hot, but room was not. Needs fan in bathroom to dissipate moisture. Breakfast needs a bit more protein, maybe boiled eggs? Good value for money.

Stayed four nights in one of the suites on the fifth floor. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and we enjoyed the fireplace and the oversized tub. We enjoyed the breakfast with several options. The mini waffles were great. Will definitely be back again!

The hotel/room was clean, people were friendly. It is a older hotel but they are taking care and maintaining it. Ample parking, biker friendly, We had a great view of the Little Pigeon River. The room could do with maintenance but it is nothing that prevents a great stay.

Our stay was great. On arrival, the staff was very friendly, professional, and helpful. When we asked questions about our room, they gave us keys before check-in to look over our room. We loved it. They gave recommendations for local restaurants and later pizza delivery when we opted to eat in. We took the quick drive to Smoky Mountain National...

Really enjoyed our stay. Hotel has everything you need including free parking. Plus it's right on the strip.it has a small pool but is perfect to cool down. There is a real cheap trolley bus which stops a few hundred yards away that serves Gatlinburg and dollywood. Staff were helpful and friendly.
