We had a great time in Gatlinburg and loved our tay here. Also loved the pool and the hot tub. Would love to go back. Bathroom was a little small but we loved the creekside view. The balcony was really small as well but good view.

We had a great time. The whole facility was a great experience. We will be staying again. The pools were great, everything was clean. Desk clerks and personal that were cleaning the rooms were very friendly.

My family of 5 stayed here for 4 days. The kids loved the indoor pool with the little cave going behind the pool. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the river with the white caps rushing over the rocks. With the sound of the water rushing over the rocks we had a good peaceful nights sleep.

The bad... Room Was very tiny and 1980's dated. Door would not shut, had to slam. No microwave, and the television cable box was precariously set upon the top of... More

It was awesome, had a room with a creek side balcony, a bear visited. Lol. Great hot tub, indoor and outdoor pool. Live music. Great staff. They have trolley passes at the desk, and a cafe with room service. I would love to stay here again. It is an older place, but that's what I loved about it.

Stayed here a few times and enjoy it there. It's an older hotel and some of the rooms are run down. But a few are up to date. Very nice for the price. I still stay here on occasion when we travel down to Gatlinburg for the weekend.

Overall this was a great place to stay. Clean and comfy beds. I loved having a balcony beside the river. My son enjoyed going out there and listening to it. My family loved the pool inside. It was clean. I would def stay here in the future.

I was very disappointed in this hotel. I have stayed in Gatlinburg numerous times each year. I traveled with my 2 small pets this time so I was looking for a place that was pet friendly and made the resevations over the phone. The pet friendly rooms were across the street from the main building. I was immediately disappointed on... More

My wife, daughter and I spent 4 nights here in late July and were very pleased.Great staff, clean room and two pools that your kids will love. The wifi is poor but for the price and close location to the strip you will be pleased. Request to stay creek side, you'll be glad you did.

Clean . affordable. Great indoor pool with waterfall and hot tub as well as a outside pool. If you are a walker you can walk to the strip or catch a tram. Little outdated but for the comfort,price location who cares!
