My Wife and I booked our room for our Honeymoon a year in advance. Upon entering the hotel we noticed a lot of construction going on with the hotel. Ton's of noise going on during the day up late into the evening. The room was large but very old. The carpet was stained and even though we specified a non... More

I really don't understand the lousy reviews. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The staff was friendly and efficient, the room clean and I loved the three pools and hot tub. Traveled solo July 14-16, 2014, with a small dog. This is one of the older motels in Gatlinburg and is off the main strip. The motel is close to... More

I booked two creekside rooms with king beds. Spouse and I in one room. Daughter and niece in other. They put us on the fourth floor so to see the creek we had to lean over the balcony. Our room was basically clean but had issues. The inside of the refrigerator door is broken. The outlet the fridge is plugged... More

This is a really cute older hotel. They have very nice pools and the indoor pool is cold. The hot tub has had dirty foam on the top since we arrived. Our door keys simply don't want to work most of the time. Maintenance fixed it and gave us new keys but it is still acting up. We made reservations... More

We had a king suite with jacuzzi tub. The room was nice and big. A little run down. It rained pretty hard the last day we were there and our ceiling starting leaking pretty significantly in the corner and my luggage just so happened to be right under the leak(total bummer). Our friends had a queen suite. It was very... More

This hotel is a joke. I booked this hotel based on the pictures and ratings by Expedia.com. When we arrived at the hotel it looked absolutely nothing like the pictures. The pictures do not even come close to the actual hotel. They show you being able to see the front of Ripley's Aquarium from the front of the hotel but... More
