We stayed here in August for 1 night. We just showed up without a booking and were able to check in right away at about 11am. Room was very spacious and clean. Comfortable beds. Room was equipped with a small kitchen - a coffee maker and mini fridge and plenty of counter space. AC worked well. Quiet at night. Front... More

Wrapping up another great week in Gatlinburg. We have never been disappointed with our choice of lodging at Rocky waters. We love our private balcony over the pigeon river. It's so convenient to walk to The Atrium, our favorite breakfast place and late in the day to the Chocolate Monkey for a waffle cone. Thanks Dan for the always welcoming... More

All in all it was a nice stay. We got there late night. Was a little disappointed with room. There were no towels in the room and It was dated. The view and the staff were awesome. We had to walk to a different hotel for breakfast and it was raining.That was a little awkward. We did not spend much... More

We chose this place based on the location and the fact each room has a private balcony overlooking the river. We could not have been more pleased with the view, cleanliness, and the helpfulness of the staff. We were disappointed to find out the hot tub here was no longer working, but we could use the one at the sister... More

This place is terrible. It looks nothing like the pictures on expedia. The pool is at another hotel 200 yards away. The continental breakfast is at another hotel. And even the guest washers and dryers are at another hotel. I should have booked at the other hotel.

Rocky waters was Great!!!! Easy check in!!! You have a numbered parking spot close to your room. Every room has a private balcony overlooking the water. When we got there the waters were low but the heavy rains made it raging waters it was peaceful just to sit on the balcony and relax. The facility had a second story pool... More

We booked a non-smoking double room for 3 nights.. Check in was nice, the person at the front desk was nice and the lobby looked nice. Our first impressions was, "This is nice!" We had stayed here before, but across the river. (It was about 7 years ago). Okay, so.. here goes in chronological order! We find our parking space,... More

Had a king non smoking room. The couch had stains all over it and it the room did not have adequate lighting. The bathtub was clogged when i took a shower and the water pressure was weak. Definately not worth $100 a night. We stayed in room 105 btw facing the creek..which was the best part. This is a older... More

I stayed at this hotel about 7 years ago, so decided to stay again as we were traveling through Gatlinburg. All I can really say is that our stay was OK. The room was rather dark, as lighting didn't seem to be in the places where you really needed it (but the bathroom was well lit). It is advertised to... More

Stayed here two nights and the rooms were nice and clean. Balcony overlooked the river and was beautiful! The kids enjoyed the pool. The hotel is close to town and we walked everywhere. I would stay here again!
