The desk staff overcharged my account,causing the bank to hold the money over-drafting my account. The sink and tub leaked. The fireplace was on a fifteen min. timer and we had to keep getting up to reset it. The breakfast was mediocre at best.

Loud squeaky bed, loud fan on heater blowing on and off all night, dumpster pick-up right next to rooms at 4am. Did like gas fireplace. Would not recommend this place. Better places in Gat and Pigeon Forge.

As has been the case every year we're here, everyone has been very friendly and helpful. We had an issue with the toilet's plastic... More

This hotel isn't the same clean hotel I remember. The bed is uncomfortable and the rooms aren't just okay when it comes to clean. My husband and I hadn't stayed at this hotel in about a year or longer. I wouldn't spend the $90 bucks again on this hotel because there is better in Gatlinburg.

I will say the rooms look nice. The bed were hard as a rock. Constantly throughout the night their were huge loud noises from the pipes. I could clearly tell you my neighbors conversation when she was speaking regularly and I can hear her husband as he peed and flush the toilet. The bestfast sucked.. Should have called it cold...

Very impressed with our accommodations. Extremely clean, convenient & great rates. Outstanding staff, excellent housekeeping. We stayed in 201 & it was perfect. Minimal noise. Breakfast was good, everything was fresh. Cookies & cider were delicious as well. We will definitely stay here again & can't wait to get back.

We chose this hotel for the river view from a balcony. The 2 queen bed room was spacious & decorated well. The beds themselves were uncomfortable and noisy! When sitting on the side or turning over in the night they squeaked! They seriously needed an upgrade. Primary reason for low rating. Breakfast was ok but boiled eggs or yogurt would... More
