We had a nice room on the fifth floor overlooking the stream and it was wonderful to hear the rushing water outside the doors to the small balcony. The room also had... More

I was extremely happy to have picked Old Creek Lodge. Check in was quick and easy. Everyone was very friendly. Our room was very clean and comfortable. I... More

My husband and I always visit Gatlinburg for our annual vacation. We've stayed at a couple of different hotels but I think this is my favorite. We booked a King room with a whirlpool and enjoyed a peaceful night. Then a conference filled up the hotel and squealing teen girls were beside us. One afternoon on our way out to... More

These guys literally were the best. Their customer experience was great! I would recommend this place to everyone I know. Jamie and David really know how to make the guest feel comfortable and at home! Gatlinburg is already an amazing but these guys made it the best experience.

After visiting TripAdvisor and motel websites we chose to stay at Old Creek Lodge while in Gatlinburg for our wedding. We found the motel to be clean and well maintained. The staff was wonderful. The motel was within a easy walk to everything we want to visit. We chose a king room with fireplace which was great. Wish we could... More

We stay here at least once a year for the last 5 years. Fresh updated rooms. Upgraded free breakfast with protein AND carbs. Clean as always. Convenient and quiet one block off of the main drag. Friendly staff. Reasonable rates. We will be back and I always recommend the Old Creek Lodge.

Best stay in Gatlinburg! We go to Gatlinburg every year to watch the ball drop and bring in the new year. Old Creek Lodge has had the best staff, stay, and complimentary breakfast by far. It will definitely be our pick for the future.
