just spent a weekend there and it was horrible. Insect infested and the floors were rotted from the leaking plumbing which meant mold and a nasty smell...I asked to be moved to another room and it was worse than the one we were in.. the town was so busy I could not find another place to stay. They false advertised... More

We recently stayed at this establishment and was VERY dissappointed with the place! Felt like the Bates Motel! Carpet was dirty, couldn't stand walking on it with bare feet, the beds were hard as a rock, no heat in the room and the sheets were dirty! We even found something in the floor that looked like cat feces! HORRIBLE!!!!! DO... More

We reserved what was called the queen suite. What a joke! It was a stand alone rundown cottage with a window air conditioner that barely worked. The porch was a mess and chairs dirty and and table rusted. The inside had no closets. A two drawer dresser and you had to hang your clothes over a microwave atop a iced... More

It was a little out of the way for the main strip attractions but a decent price for what it was. The room looked like a cottage on the inside but a regular motel on the outside. We paid $45 for the night. All in all, I would recommend it on a pinch but I wouldn't stay there for an... More

We stayed here for our second night on a roadtrip, and I must say our initial reaction was a little apprehensive as it looks kind of shady. However, the woman who runs the place was absolutely lovely and accommodating and our room was nicer than anticipated. We paid $45 for the night in a little cabin room with 2 beds.... More

Great price for what you get. April, who works desk very friendly. Rooms were very clean. Only strange thing was no phone in cottage. We would definitely come back and stay again and recommend this place to friends and fa mily. Although, if I came during another season, I would want an indoor pool.

We were there on pick season and we had not booked anything before reaching there due to uncertainity or unplanned visit. Room was cozy but with kitchen. Not very attractive but really good for price. I may consider it again if any unplanned visit there and need to stay just for a night.

We originally made reservations by phone and were quoted 45$ per night for a two bedroom cabin for four nights.Upon arrival we found the cabin to be clean and comfortable but very dated and a little run down. Despite what their site said it was not within walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg or the trolley. Considering the price we stayed... More

Pros: price, service, location, bubbling sound of the Roaring Forks, full kitchen, free internet Cons: a little run down, dirty dishes & stained bath towels If you're touring the Smokies and don't want to stay on Gatlinburg's chaotic, loud strip, this is a great spot. Located at the terminus of the Roaring Forks Motor trail, you can pay an extra... More
