Everything was awesome with the exception of the showers. The water temperature fluctuated greatly and the lack of an anti-scald valve meant you couldn't stand under the water while you were showering

I came down with my family for the weekend to preform a wedding. The staff was very friendly, our room was clean and we found it to be very convenient to town with two trolley stops in front. The kids loved the indoor pool and hot tub. My wife wants to come back for our anniversary, and we most likely... More

The hotel is old and run down. It was recommended to us by a friend of one of our family members. Our family were all visiting from across the country to attend a wedding. The front lobby smells like a locker room. The room keys are. Dry tricky to use requiring a combination of jostling the card into the slot... More

We reserved our room two weeks prior. We were on the ground floor and in walking distance of Gatlinburg. When we arrived at the motel, we were checked in quickly. We went to our room and first thing we noticed was, we had a crack under the door big enough that a crawly something could have came in. We stuffed... More

Our stay was terrible. Even for the $99/night we paid, I feel we overpaid for the service (or lack thereof) we received. The rooms are extremely outdated and cheaply made. The layout is also weird. The bathroom is very tiny and the sink - at least in our room - was right next to the bed which was weird. There... More

Hotel is very convenient to all areas and roads. The stream running by room was nice. Room and furniture was old and musty. Had problems with noise from next room 2 of 5 nights with no resolution from desk. At check out the clerk did not want to give me a receipt, did not ask how our stay was or... More

Stayed in August 2014 & had some issues with the maintenance/TV guy being in our room. The extra security latch is broke & spotted 1 roach which I killed. We loved the room though. 1 king bed (which was clean....mattress/box springs was not covered in plastic, which always raises suspicion of bugs), 2 full baths (1 upstairs & 1 downstairs),... More

We reserved our room online-perhaps the hotel saves the really gross rooms for the guests paying a discounted rate? 1) The hotel looks like it's partially under construction-I didn't hear any noise but it looked terrible upon first impression. 2) The door barely opened, you had to shove it really hard-same to close obviously-there was a gap in the door-great...

The staff was "extremely rude" to my wife. She has a disability and is unable to stand for very long. The reservation was booked online and upon arrival my wife was told she would have to wait for service. That should've been the first clue since there were no other customers at the desk. Then the next clue was that... More

This hotel is old and a little outdate.. the staff is really nice and will go out of there way to help you. The indoor pool is really cold but having 3 pools makes it easier to find a place to swim..I stayed in court side across the street and had 2 double beds it was a nice room cleaned... More
