My Husband and I have stayed at Christy's every July and Sept for many years. We have always been greeted by the owner Steve who remembers our name and gives us the same room every year. The rooms are clean, and pride is everywhere. The Motel is very family friendly and works very hard to make your stay a truly relaxing time.
Highly recommend this Motel..

Hi Wingthing76,

Thanks for the review and staying at Christy's. No big thing on your Mom's AC, I'll take easy fixes like that all day. I know it's hard sometimes and I don't know how much free time you have. But if you could, you should try to get in more than just one day sometime. There are so many things to see and do I think you guys would really have a great time exploring the Old Forge area.

We stayed at Christy's Motel this past weekend for 3 nights and pride of ownership is evident everywhere at this motel. The owner, Steve, is friendly and accommodating and works hard to make sure the place is pin perfect; the lawn is cut and in great shape, the pool is clean and tidy, the flowers and motel porch clean and kept up. The rooms were very clean and very well-looked after if not the most modern. Lots of room for the 5 of us!
We loved the location (about a km from the water park) and the green space, BBQ and pool made the evenings great for the kids. Steve showed "drive-in" movies for the kids every night which was a lot of fun. We will definitely stay here when we return to Old Forge. (also right beside liquor store and across from Fast Track for pizza, beer etc....)

Hi cocomajo,

Thanks for staying with us again and it worked out great that the handicap room was available for you. Thanks for the input on the bed spreads and hope you get time to visit the Old Forge area again in the future.

Stayed in room 10 in corner. Nice enough, everything worked and wifi was good.

My (minor) complaints - showerhead is old sandblaster-type, and room smelled slightly ~ something - like it had been a smokers room a few years ago? Could use a new matress, a bit hard. At 85 dollars for a Sunday night it was okay, but maybe a bit overpriced?
I would stay again if there weren't another highly rated place to try. Owner was very friendly and nice..

Hi tedley7,

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. Just after your stay, I was doing my final check of the rooms before the season got into full swing. I also thought #10 and a few other rooms had a slight smell. What I found cased this, was we had the windows open and the dampness from the wet spring we had settled into the rooms. I closed the windows and turned on the heat to dry out the rooms and the slight smell went away.

Hope you enjoyed the area and thanks again for the review,
Steve
