Great location & friendly staff. The rooms were very spacious, and we really enjoyed the fire place & the jacuzzi, and also sitting on the patio by the stream, complete with a few ducks! Great location; we will be back!

Love the location and stayed in the condos instead of the motel. Very reasonable price for a condo just a block off main street in center of town. Definitely will be staying there again. Also close to the Ripley Aquarium that is biggest attraction in Gatlinburg. No problem walking there.

We stayed in a deluxe room on the creek (just like always). We had 3 leaky faucets and a terrible bumping/rattling sound that kept us awake at night. Maintenance man tried to help and he did the best that he could with those problems. Also, there was small trash in the mulch outside of our room. You would have assumed... More

I booked a room thru the hotels website after seeing good reviews and a good price on TripAdvisor. There wasn't many pictures but the ones posted where great! After my visit I believe they took pictures of their best room and even question the reviews. When I walked into the first room and looked around I immediately wished I had... More

We reserved a king with jacuzzi room, it was nice very clean room. The staff was great on check in. When we came back the toilet in our room was making a weird noise then water began gushing out and flooding the floor. I called front desk while my husband turned off the water. Maintenance was there fast, the man... More

TV is small and internet would never really connect. We had issues with TV not working but maintenance came quickly. Someone had stolen the right remote. Rooms were very clean no smoke smell. You are not even supposed to smoke on the balcony. It is located in a very nice area. The poor internet is why I won't stay there... More

Good price for room, very clean, friendly staff, and conveniently located. I would rate this a five it weren't for the fact this room was SOOOO OUTDATED. Please upgrade!!! I thought all hotels came with a flat screen tv and DVD player instead of a VCR. That sounds very "spoiled" of me, I know. Looking at the furniture, carpet and... More

The hotel room was clean, the beds comfortable, front desk accomodating and friendly. The rooms need updating. My kids had never seen a TV that they could not connect their X Box. We had 2 full-sized beds0.. Our room had a gas fireplace which added charm to the room, but not warmth (it was <30 degrees in Gatlinburg when we... More

The rooms were clean, staff friendly, location great. Everything has been updated and maintained. Will stay again. Bring a hair dryer though :) We had one of the rooms with the third bed/extra bedroom. Very nice and roomy. Would have liked to have a tv in the extra room but just happy to find a place with 3 beds.
