Reviewed 31 July 2015

First the pros: The location of this hotel is great if you want to be right in the center of the action of downtown Gatlinburg. It's a block off the Main Street so it's quieter and less hectic than those right on the street. It's also located on the side of town closest to the park. A number of restaurants...

This was our first time at Old Creek Lodge and we were not disappointed. The room was great, very much enjoyed the two person whirlpool tub. Hotel staff was very friendly and hotel location was walking distance to everything from restaurants to miniature golf. Definitely will go back again.

We stayed at Old Creek Lodge in July 2015 for the 1st. time. This hotel more than exceeded our expectations. The room was super clean, spacious, had rustic décor, and perfect location. All the rooms in this hotel have balconies that overlook either a beautiful stream or Little Pigeon River. Our balcony faced the small stream and the sound of...

We stayed here recently for 4 nights. The room was very clean and large. Although it was too warm for a fire we liked the fireplace. My favorite spot was sitting on the balcony in the morning enjoying the rush of the creek and looking at the mountain. The beds were good and the afternoon staff of Nancy and Dalton...

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.

We stayed here for our first family vacation. We were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the rooms. Wonderful creek side room with two queen beds. 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...
