The location and view were very impressive with very large pool and playground. The stream flowing around the facility was spectacular. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were very run down and gloomy. Our sink stopper was broke which was taken care of right away but carpet was very nasty. For what I paid I expected much more.

This hotel has a great location and is super quiet even though it is in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg. We stayed on the island and the rushing water on both sides of our room was so peaceful. Only complaint was the internet was not working all weekend. While the room was clean and comfortable, it needs to be updated.... More

The room was OK. Needs updating and the size is small for a family suite. The bedrooms are small and the bathroom is very small. Overall the location is VERY centrally located in Gatlinburg and the grounds are very lovely. Very well maintained and the playground is super fun for kids. The pool was well maintained as well.

Great location in town. lovely river around property. nice size room, but all walnut paneling. - a little tired. Walls paper thin, Some desk staff not helpful when their computer was not working, not interested in helping us. Went in back room. Not the typical great service of Best Westerns.

This is a nice, reasonable family hotel. Rooms are small but clean (my only issue with the size was the lack of shelving/sufficient counter space in the bathroom- there simply was not enough room to put several days worth of drug supplies for a family of four, and stuff kept getting knocked to the floor.) The balcony over the river... More

This hotel was right next door to our favorite Mexican place in Gatlinburg - No Way Jose! Also outside your door is the Aquarium, Ripley's, and lots of fun shops. The room was comfortable and clean. Our room had a nice little grassy patio area right on the river. Breakfast included eggs, biscuits, and gravy - very Southern. Front desk... More

This was by far, the nicest property we have stayed at within the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. The scenery is beautiful with the river flowing all around the entire property. The atmosphere and ambiance is excellent. It is definitely within walking distance of all trollies just around the corner. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BEST WESTERN AND WE WILL STAY HERE EVERY... More

We found this hotel on line and were greatly surprised with the cleanness the condition of the room and the price. It is located close to downtown Gatlinburg so you can walk to all the attractions and leave your car at the hotel.

This hotel was wonderful and our children had an amazing time. We were able to swim and use the on sight playground. It was very clean and their breakfast was nice. The staff was very nice and helpful. We will be using this hotel again for our family vacation.

We spent 3 nights where over the spring break week. We stayed in room 406 which was right across from Honeymoon Island. I paid a little more for a room with a fireplace. We had a nice view of the strip and the river from our room and were very close to the lobby, pool and main entrance. This hotel... More
