Perfect location! Close to everything, but away from noise of main strip. We parked in the deck and didn't move the car the rest of the weekend! Very comfortable beds, free beer/wine upon arrival. Nice pool/hot tubs. We had a great stay. Will stay again.

The hotel was nice. Great view and location within walking distance to all Gatlinburg shops and attractions. Benches by the river were a nice place to relax. Friendly staff and good continental breakfast. We will stay here again.

We booked a king bed room on the river side. We were given a room on the 8th floor. The view of downtown Gatlinburg from the balcony was wonderful. The hotel is old, but the room/bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is very close to all downtown attractions/restaurants - just walk across a parking lot and... More

Hotel was very nice. The rooms were a little small and my mountain view was blocked by the indoor pool. The breakfast was great, hot and cold. The staff were very nice. The location was perfect. You're not quite in the middle of everything but then again you are. only one block from skylift. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a jacuzzi suite next to the mountain side. Beautiful! Loved the indoor/outdoor pool. Such a beautiful place and friendly workers! Very close to everything but not too close. Very quiet. Will be coming back very soon! Highly recommended!
