A great place to relax ,sit on the porch and watch the river go by. Staff are helpful and friendly. Great breakfast bar that you can enjoy outside with great views. The beds are comfortable and linens clean. The indoor pool is clean and not crowded, I stay here every time I go to the mountains.

I truly enjoyed the majority of my stay at this hotel. It is both clean and comfortable. The only problem we had was the hot tub was always filled to the brim with people and the pool usually had a bunch of obnoxious children that had never been taught manners in it; splashing adults in the face and bumping into...

Great mountain location, hotel is on the river, wild life (ducks) come up to deck to get feed. Has a great deck to sit on and rock and watch the river go by. Central location if one is visiting the great Smokes. "Take the train ride"

Loved the room! very neat, clean, and spacious;; staff was friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed the river flow and mountain view outdoors. I definitely loved the hot tub and pool! Even better was the exercise room that had little mini TVs attached to the treadmill. It would have been exceptional if they worked properly -- keep going in and out and... More

All the reviews are correct. What a great place! Decent price, excellent facility, spotless room. And a great location - central to the Franklin gem mining, Smoky Mountain NP, and Highlands. The room with a river view was just right. Definitely would stay here the next time I visit the NC mountains.

Always a pleasure . Great setting by the river set off away from main road. Resturants near by and small shops. Great being in the Smoky Mountains in a quiet place . Staff was awesome and always accomodating.
