We had a room overlooking the river and it was wonderful! The sounds of the rushing water was the perfect lullaby for a great nights sleep. The room was spacious with two loveseats for relaxing. It's just outside the park so it's a perfect location to walk to Sugarlands Visitors Center if you wish or stroll down the streets of Gatlinburg. After a day of hiking, the jetted tub or long hot shower (with the best water pressure around) is the perfect way to conclude a long tiring day. The mattress could have been replaced but all in all we would return in a heartbeat and in fact we have stayed there several times and not been disappointed. Oh yes! Don't forget to order the orange juice and donuts for breakfast...they bring them to your room and are excellent.
