Stayed one night with family. The front desk staff was exceptional, particularly the two ladies working the evening of 2/19/17. Rooms where a little dated but were very clean and loved the balcony over the creek!! Kids really enjoyed the indoor pool. We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here on a trip to Gatlinburg to do some hiking at elkmont. Our rooms were creek side. Had nice little balcony with 2 comfy rocking chairs. The rooms were a little outdated as with most older places down there but were super clean. The rates were very cheap witch made it a great place and well within walking distance...

We stayed in a pet friendly room across the street from the main hotel. The room was dated, but the bed was pretty good. I would not want to stay there for more than a few days - too cramped. They only left us 2 bars of soap and one shampoo - no conditioner or lotion.

My favorite hotel was booked and I had to hunt to try and find a reasonable place that was clean and decent to stay at. I was very surprised at this hotel, It has/had everything from a hot tub to a pool, clean rooms and very nicely decorated, I only gave this a very good rating because of the remodel,...

I find it disturbing that this hotel has a billboard that reads "mountain tough" but will not rent to locals effected by the fire. Please take your sign down, your actions contradict it. Ill be spending money elsewhere.

We loved it. We stayed here for new years eve in a king room. The room was ready when we arrived at at noon. The bed slept well, easy walk to the strip and the kids loved the indoor pool. Our room was above the indoor pool which made for easy access and they provide towels at the pool area....

Not a good place to stay if you go to Gatlinburg. The area has a lot of hotels with similar price and better conditions for sure. This facility needs a renovation since the 90's probably. My welcome salute was a double charge to my credit card and the genius at the front desk asking the same stupid phrase: "Did you...

Positive - Our kiddos loved the pool area with the cave area & hot tub and that part was open till midnight which was great after a fun day downtown. Negative - The mattresses were really old and worn down though (hard, roll to the middle, all the padding is gone in the middle) - makes for an uncomfortable night's...

“Our room was 4th flr facing river - can't see it unless you lean over the patio railing. Should request a lower room for more view of water.”
