We stay here every time we come to Gatlinburg and just booked again for later this month! The rooms are updated and spacious. It's always clean. Check in has always been a breeze. We feel very safe here! It's walking distance to everything! It's located in the ski resort side of Gatlinburg.

I would have given this a 5 star except, the beds are horrible. Most people DO NOT like hard beds. I'm sure some do. I have stayed there 2 times and every night wake up hurting and tossing and turning. My husband says the same thing. We are all stiff and sore the next day from the hard beds. Please... More

Before the remodel that gave this hotel its log cabin exterior, it was a Fairfield Inn. Even before the remodel I felt like this was THE place to stay in Gatlinburg for a reasonable price and a great room. Rooms with hot tubs, fireplaces, and some of the best views off the balconies ... all for the price of a... More

We'd stayed previously at the Bearskin Lodge on the River in Gatlinburg. Old Creek Lodge must have the same owners-the rustic décor is nearly identical, as are the complimentary afternoon lemonade and homemade cookies in the lobby. We enjoyed our 2 night stay, and were able to walk to several nearby locations that we like to visit. We are seniors,... More

Very nice hotel beside the stream. Clean and spacious room. Easy walk to all the shops of Gatlinburg and room 407 has the amazing sound of the water which we left the door open to sleep by. Will be back.

Cute little hotel. Great location. Just a short walk to the main strip of Gatlinburg. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating!! Our TV satellite went out and they had it back up and running in no time. The rooms were very clean and the decor was nice. The bed was a little firm for me but the husband... More

Whenever I visit Gatlinburg, I either stay at the Bear Skin Lodge, or the Old Creek Lodge. I prefer the Old Creek because all of the rooms are on the stream, and it always seems a little nicer. I had to a stay at the Bear Skin in March because there wasn't any vacancies at Old Creek, and it needed... More

This is our second time to stay here. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff (Tim, Nancy, Gary, Dalton and all the others that I didn't catch their names) couldn't be any better in any way. Our room had a balcony overlooking a creek and next to Ober Ski Lift. Brought our breakfast up there every morning and sat their before... More

The staff was very accommodating considering how late we got there and how short notice we booked. They took care of our needs, and the room was once again Top Notch! I can't find a better price and quality for as close to the main strip in Gatlinburg as this place is. It is literally 1 block from downtown, yet... More

We stayed one night while in the Gatlinburg area with our kids. The rooms were really clean, amenities nice, staff very friendly. I did hear the neighbors next door a little bit but what hotel won't you hear them. Room had a fireplace which we did not use (90 degrees out) and our roomed overlooked the creek below. This is...
