We loved our one night stay here! It was clean and QUIET. We also loved the pool area and ducks out back. I feel like the river facing room was a waste of money, though. I was somehow under the impression that it was going to be an inside room with the balcony facing the water. That was my mistake.... More

Located next door to The Christmas Place on the Parkway. We stayed in a river-facing room for two nights and had a nice stay. The rooms are simple and clean. Good shower pressure. Big screen tv in the room. Toilet and tub are separated from sink which is helpful when more than one person is getting ready for the day.... More

The place was pretty good! Nice staff, nice pool, nice rooms, the location was OK. For the price it's good! I give it a 4 out of 5. We would prob stay again. You can't beat the price! The only downside is the loud people staying next to us, but that wasn't the hotels fault..

I've stayed here twice and will stay here every year when I come back. Love the jacuzzi suite I get one every time and use it a lot. It's so relaxing after a day of walking around in gatlinburg. The rooms are clean the breakfast is good and the staff is great.

Enjoyed this hotel -- ground floor room right near breakfast area and pool. View of the river and geese and ducks. Every amenity in the room -- clean and bright. Will definitely go back again if I can have the same room!

I got a river-view room with a hot tub, and although some of the controls were broken, the set-up was lovely. The room was sparkling clean, with a refrigerator and a microwave, and the free breakfast is a great way to start the day. I didn't use the pool, but I enjoyed watching the river and all the water birds.... More
