We stayed here for our 10 yr anniversary July 31 - Aug 2. The stay was very nice. The room was super clean, the water pressure was great! It is an older motel but I told my husband it was very peaceful the time we spent up there and really didn't have any worries about your surroundings. It is family... More

The hotel is family owned and operated. The boy at the desk said they have been around since 1972. It is a bit old fashioned. Check in was writing down all the info with no computer printout. I am not sure how they figured my final total. I was quoted 68 a night plus tax. I stayed two nights and... More

My family and I stayed for three nights here and it was great. Rooms are dated but they were clean, the overall stay was awesome. Family owned and operated. My children loved swimming, very clean pool. We will definitely stay again.

We certainly enjoyed our stay at the Sleepy Bear Motel. The Little House of Pancakes is located directly across the street and features some of the best breakfast food in all of Gatlinburg. The Alamo Steakhouse is also within walking distance of the motel. The clerk in the main office was both pleasant and accommodating. The room featured a television... More

Our family loves this motel. It is older and dated but very very clean. The lady at the front desk is very nice and hospitable. It is Christian owned and operated. We always stay on the bottom floor in a room close to the big tree by the creek. Top and bottom floors are all over the creek, except for... More

My husband and I stopped at this motel to get a room just for the night so we can get some sleep. we didn't really care if the place was outdated (which it is) or modern. the main thing I care about is how clean the room and especially the beds are. I usually always check the sheets first to... More

We stayed at this motel for two nights during a recent visit to the Smoky Mountains. I can't think of anything about this motel that isn't old. The TV didn't work that well but we didn't use it much anyway. The beds were pretty worn. The bathroom is very, very small. However, our room was clean and the pool was... More

I stayed at the motel for only one night because I was on a road trip. I booked in advance to make sure I had a place to sleep but it was getting so late and by that time I would have slept anywhere because I was so tired. I called ahead and told I was on the way and... More
