The rooms were definitely dated and scarred. I don't know how Trip Advisor has given this one of their top performer hotels. The outside is nice, however, the rooms were dirty. Roaches in the tub. The pictures that were taken must be at least 10 yrs old. This place could use some updates.

The room was nice and big. But when I crawled into bed there was a dirty bandaid stuck to the sheet. Also the wall are so thin you can here people's conversations in joining rooms and also toilets flushing. Not worth the price. Very disappointed that they had not cleaned the bed.

First visit to Smoky Mt. NP. Hotel nicely located on creek close to main strip with restaurants & tram short walking distance. Mattresses strangely noisy, door self locked requiring maintenance to jimmy to reenter, breakfast fair, in room coffee better than in bkfst room. Nice patio over looking creek off rear of room. Staff very friendly. Good rate.

I loved this place when it was the Fairfield. This time we didn't get the sheets changed, nor the trash cans emptied and the maid did not do a good job of cleaning the room. We ran out of Kleenex. I placed the empty box on the counter in the bath so the maid would be sure and see it.... More

This hotel is one of the nicer places I've seen in town. It's a block off the main drag so you don't get the noise from the late night crowds, but easy walking to anywhere. Sits on a nice river,rooms were clean and nicely appointed. Staff was friendly. Continental was just ok, your better off going out to one of... More

The hotel was nice, clean, and quiet. Off the main drag but easy walking distance of Parkway main or several trolley stops. Being off the main road made it much quieter and restful. The stream view was nice and the staff polite. Very nice for the price. We had an enjoyable stay.

Very nice. Clean rooms, had a fireplace, whirlpool hot tub and everything was clean which I like. Walking distance to shops so dont have to worry about driving & finding parking. Breakfast was ok not the best but I was more concerned about the rooms. Will definitely come back again.

Great hotel! Walking distance to restaurants, shopping and attractions. Enjoyed the sounds of the creek from our balcony. The room was very clean and comfortable. We will stay whenever we are in Gatlinburg! So happy we found this hotel!

We had a horrible experience with a cabin, and were forced to find another place to stay. Of course it was a peak weekend in Gatlinburg!! We were a little hesitant to try our luck with another cabin. So long story short we ended up booking the VERY LAST room at The Old Creek Lodge. It was a wonderful stay!... More

The location cannot be beat. We were there this Labor Day weekend and we parked and walked without any of the usual hassles if you stay out of town. Parking was impossible and that alone is worth it. As to our unit itself: it was clean, with recently updated bathrooms, with decent woodsy furniture, with a working gas fireplace, and... More
