I booked our room based on the reviews others had posted and we couldn't have been happier! It's a very easy walk to the main strip in Gatlinburg, even in the rain. The place might look outdated on the outside but our room looked like it had been recently updated and made us feel as if we were in our own little cabin. We had a king room on the first floor which had a mini frig, microwave and jacuzzi tub. Our favorite part of the day was in the mornings sitting on the balcony listening to the river, enjoying our coffee and donuts while feeding the birds, chipmunks and squirrels! Another surprise was how fast breakfast was delivered to your room after ordering, usually in 5 minutes or less! We highly recommend this place and will definitely stay here next time we are in Gatlinburg. The only thing negatives about the room, no soap, lotion, etc like most hotels and we were only given 2 towels, 2 wash clothes and 2 hand towels each day I guess we could have asked for more but we made it work. No big deal for us!
