This is the ONLY hotel that we stay at when visiting Gatlinburg. The suites/rooms are beautiful, updated, with NO CARPET, and VERY CLEAN! We love the creek that you can view from your balcony or listen to while sitting next to the fireplace. We never ate the free breakfast, but why would you? Your in Gatlinburg.... go get some pancakes!... More

I loved, loved, loved this place. Everything new and clean but rustic just as you would expect to find in Gatlinburg. Log trimmed furniture beautifully decorated. We stayed in an executive two queen bedroom. It was a large room with a fireplace and jacuzzi. This room overlooked the creek. The shower was oversized and tiled beautifully. The vanity sink in...

My husband and I were in town for a weekend trip. Our usual places to stay were all booked up (or too expensive). I had noticed Old Creek Lodge in passing and decided to give it a try. First off, for two nights, it was $100 cheaper than the other place we usually stay. When we arrived, the check in... More

I read a lot of reviews on different hotels in the area and changed my reservations 3 times before settling on this place. It was worth it! The walls are kinda thin and we were able to hear our neighbors one night while we were there but to be fair, we had 2 toddlers (ages 2 and 3) and I'm... More

The front desk staff were wonderful. The room was very clean and comfortable. Our room had a fireplace and a Jacuzzi. Very close to shopping and just off the beaten path. We look forward to coming back.

What a great experience. We visited Gatlinburg for a quick couples trip. I am really glad we picked this place. Check in was super easy with a really friendly staff. The room was really clean and had plenty of room for the both of us. The fireplace got plenty of use and the whirlpool tub was a nice touch too.... More

We were in Gatlinburg as a base for hiking the Smoky Mountains, and had no idea what the area was like. Tourists, and cheap attractions, and moonshine - oh my! Old Creek Lodge was only a block off the main drag, but could have been a mile away. Quiet, peaceful creek bubbling behind our room. The huge room with fireplace... More
