Stayed here with my 2 granddaughters, we just loved the place. It was so clean and everyone was so nice. Short walk to town. Planning a weekend in September with my husband and will be staying there. Have told several people about the hotel and what a great place to stay if you are in Gatlinburg.

Very clean rooms.The pool isn't very private being next to road but it was great for a quick dip to cool off after all day walking. Which we...

Great lodging... Large, clean rooms. The shower was beautiful tile! My family loved having a balcony overlooking the creek (all rooms have this). While the hotel is just one block from the main road, having the sounds of the creek made us feel like we were further away. The hotel is a 2 minute drive to the entrance of the...

Stayed 3 nights here and were very pleasantly surprised at everything. The looks of the lodge are great and very much in keeping with Gatlinburg. The room itself was large with cabin looking décor, fireplace, whirlpool and balcony overlooking the river. Enjoyed the wooden floors and walkin shower with stone tile surround. We were in room 419 clear down on...

The pictures do not do this hotel the justice it deserves. I consider myself picky when it comes to cleanliness and feeling safe. My family was very happy with the legitimate queen size beds clean sheets and comforters. The tile shower was a nice addition. If you like a soothing sound the stream balcony is an awesome place to have...

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend trip to Gatlinburg. The hotel itself is quite nice as Gatlinburg standards go. The front desk staff were helpful and the rooms were nicely decorated and clean. Parking was never a problem for us and the location was good as we walked to most restaurants. I would have given the hotel...

Wow - Gatlinburg is a crazy busy place! This hotel is not on the main drag which we thought was a very good thing! Evidently it's recently been updated so everything is sparkling and clean. We liked the hardness of the new mattresses though obviously not everyone does. The shower stall is the best - all tiled with no tub...

My wife and I stayed here for the first night of our anniversary vacation (Made the mistake of not booking two nights), and it was absolutely perfect. We had two queens due to late booking and kings being all booked, but worked out better because we had extra room. The room had a fireplace and whirlpool bedside, both of which...

We stayed 3 nights here and it was wonderful. The room is very spacious, beds were comfy, bathroom was nice and clean and I loved the shower. The pool was small but very clean. The mountain stream was beautiful and so relaxing. The staff was nice and we loved the cookies and lemonade every afternoon. The breakfast was good too....
