It was my first time in Gatlinburg, so, the city in a whole was a great experience. The hotel itself was a decent value. We had a king sized suite on the 4th floor. It was a nice looking room, was quiet and right off the elevator which was nice. The staff was VERY friendly, so kudos to them. Facility... More

There are a few reasons I would not stay here again. The most important being the very uncomfortable mattress. I woke up both mornings of our stay with a very stiff/sore back. The second reason would be the loudness factor. The walls are not insulated well and you could hear everything. When people run their jacuzzis it is a very... More

We know vacation is a time of relaxation and rejuvenation, and we certainly apologize for not meeting your expectations at Old Creek Lodge. Mattresses are the single most important item inside a room, yet the single most difficult to choose for everyone. They are fairly new and a major name brand, but that doesn't help if you don't agree with... More

We chose this hotel after driving though Gatlinburg trying to decide which hotel we wanted to stay at. Prices were reasonable. The Staff was very friendly and the lobby was clean as was our room. I though for the price the room was very nice. Loved the creek outside our balcony. My only complaint is the pop or settling noises... More

Can hear the showers and water thru the wall, toilets flushing. Black mildew above tub in corner, need to recall around tub. Staff during day very good. Room didn't look like pictures on website, but not bad. Spacious, nice fireplace, small toilet & shower area. It's not what I expected but okay. Better than lots of the places in gatlinburg... More

We stayed one night while meeting family in Gatlinburg. This is a great place to stay. Very clean and up to date unlike some of the other properties in the area. We had a nice balcony overlooking the creek, plenty of space in the room, and a gas fireplace. The location is perfect for walking around and there are plenty... More

This lodge is in a GREAT location, with nice and clean rooms, very well furnished, and amazing staff, but let me tell you why I won't be coming back... The beds. I'm only 24 years old and MY back was killing me and I woke up multiple times throughout the night. Ruining sleep on a vacation will ruin the mood... More

We did a impromptu trip to Gatlinburg and found this gem and so glad we did. We were able to park our car in a car port and walk everywhere, this saved the hassle of traffic, paid parking and we were covered from the snow and ice. The room was very clean, very friendly staff and the view was amazing.... More

Our other lodging fell through so we picked this place on a whim. We lucked out big time! The rooms have been recently renovated. They are large and spacious and decorated with a lodge feel. Each room has a gas fireplace with a stacked stone surround. Each suite has a balcony overlooking the river.This hotel is conveniently placed within walking... More
