We stayed in the Spa suite on the second floor, for three nights.The room was extremely clean and plenty of space, the picture on the site is exactly like the room, except the room has wooden floors, there's two T.V in the room, both have pretty clear pictures, they also have...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lodge. The location to in Gatlinburg and proximity to the park were absolutely perfect. The staff from the desk to cleaning staff were very personable, friendly and helpful with tips of what to do in town and Smokey Mountain National Park. The view of the stream from our room was absolutely wonderful. Our... More

Although we only stayed one night, we enjoyed the huge room, perfect location, friendly service, easy parking. Walk to everything, but the area is quiet. The small balcony over the creek was a bonus. Breakfast was adequate, but they don't have a lot of for guests to dine.

My husband and I were on a road trip to Gatlinburg and really looking forward to our stay at the Old Creek Lodge. We stayed one night only and selected it mostly based on reviews posted on TripAdvisor. We had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the river. It was very large with fireplace and wood floors; very clean... More

My husband and I were guests at the Old Creek Lodge in August 2015. The room was so beautiful. It was very clean. Everything in the room worked great. The mattress was extremely comfortable. We enjoyed the view and the sounds of the river from our balcony. One evening we watched a family of river otters playing up and down... More

Stayed here five nights during our annual Gatlinburg trek. Our room was very large and comfortable. The continental breakfast was excellent. The front desk personnel were very friendly. The wifi worked great. We look forward to our next visit.

Stayed here 2 nights and was quite happy. The rooms are large with fireplaces and wood floors and large bathrooms have walkin tile showers. My balcony overlooked the river and if i left my door open all I could hear was the flow of the water. Other reviews have commented on the noise and although I did clearly hear someone... More

This was actually our second time staying here and we would most likely stay here again. It is very clean, the staff is friendly, location is great and the breakfast is nice. My only complaint with here is the mattresses. They do not appear to be old, just not of good quality and makes for a rough night of sleeping.... More

We had a great stay at this lodge! Our room was beautiful and had great decor that made our experience even more wonderful! Our balcony over the river included river otters, which we did not expect. The location is ideal and quiet off of the strip. Walking distance to many things. The staff at the front desk were amazing and... More
