5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

It beautiful whenever in the night and morning, the lights you can see in downtown. You don't have to drive and it perfect location to stay. I give excellent rate because it good/relax place to stay in Gatlinburg........ And it free breakfast, enough room to stay in, and nice shower.

Got a great price on the room and was very satisfied. Room appeared to be recently renovated, new flat screen TV and a very nice shower, which is always important to me! Great location, only about a quarter mile from Ripley's aquarium, which is great to be able to walk into town without having to pay to park!

Needed a place last minute it was available. Room was not very clean furniture was dated and banged up and the shower curtain was black with mildew/mold. Tv was dated did not support hdmi. Elevator got stuck briefly. Staff was friendly, and the location was good.

Front of building looks really nice....come on up the hill behind it and there are pallets stacked up in parking lot.... Rooms reek of stinking cigarette smoke so bad your eyes burn. Dead bugs on the floors and the tubs are horrible. Some rooms have new carpet but still stink. Pillows smells like dirty unwashed hair. Will not stay here... More

We spent 3 nights here during the Thanksgiving weekend. Upon arrival, it was quite obvious that this hotel was going through renovations which we expected due to our research before booking. Construction materials was throughout the parking lot. Actually, I only saw a handful of families staying here with most of the other guests were construction workers themselves. Asking to... More

We are a buget room couple. I have stayed in many budget motels/hotels and this one was okay but toward the bottom of the list. First thing on arrival was loud smell of air fresheners/cleaner, almost gave you a headache. Room had been renovated and was very clean and acceptable. You get what you pay for and we were not...

For the positive, the room was large and comfortable. It was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast wasn't bad. But the dining area was too small for the hotel and if it had been full, there would not have been enough places to sit and eat. They are also remodeling and updating the rooms. Once... More

Hotel is walking distance from downtown Gatlinburg, great location. Hotel is a little outdated but comfortable. I would return and stay again, comfortable enough for my family of four. Free breakfast, WiFi and parking!

We originally stayed at another motel for the first two days of a 4 night stay and had to move due to unforeseen issues there; check on my Rocky Waters review. So, we looked at a room here on the way out to a new trail hike, talked with the manager and desk clerk before moving. We try to find... More

the tub water would barely drain, the ice machine on the floor was out of order, and the light over the sink area didn't work. the kitchen area for getting your breakfast was way too small: the wall needs knocked out between kitchen and eating area to allow for an orderly line at the breakfast items.
