“Beware of the cancellation policy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

They require 15 DAYS notice or you will be charged. Other than that the motel is a quirky, different place to stay - screen doors, porches, etc. It’s certainly not updated, but neither are their prices. Wood paneling doesn't bother me when paying $50 a night. The room was clean and close to the main drag through Gatlinburg.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We spent two nights at Marshall's Creek at loved it! The rooms were extremely clean and we loved the room. We stayed in #19 and it was at the end of the motel so we had the creek right beside our room. We could hear it when we opened the windows! I would highly recommend this motel to everyone.

We stayed here for one night in August. They were booked the following night so we had to check out. We hated to leave. We fell in love with this cute little motel. We paid double somewhere else and didn't enjoy it nearly as much as Marshall's. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and the short walk to the Parkway was great. We will definitely return!

The rooms are comfortable and spotless! You're close enough to the main road through Gatlinburg that you won't need to drive anywhere, but behind enough buildings that you don't have to deal with the noise. The owners and employees are super friendly and helpful! I will definitely stay here next time I'm in town!

This place sits in amongst more mordern hotels & condos. It has only 19 rooms, hooked end to end, like it used to be back in the 60's. Very clean & reasonably priced, has heat & air, cable tv's. No phones in the room, but who needs that distraction. Family owned, everyone is very friendly & glad to serve you. You can walk downtown, eat, shop and then come back & set on the front porch and listen to the creek run.
We live less than an hour from Gatlinburg and try to stay there everytime we're in town. It is small & it's always full, so call well in advance.

A very clean little motel, close to the national park - we love saving money and getting to the hiking trail (Alum Cave Trail) early. GREAT DEAL in Gatlinburg. A bit older and simple, but very clean. Not too noisy like other places in town. GREAT!!!! Will always stay here!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite....and have more room!

Marshall's Creekrest started out as 4 cabins in 1950. The cabins were connected and rooms added between them in subsequent years. The motel has been in the same family since its inception. The current owner has upgraded the bathrooms, and continues to maintain high standards of cleanliness. Contrary to other posts, NO PETS are allowed. There is cable TV, and a limited number of refrigerators are available on a first come, first served basis. There is no WiFi, so sit out in front of your room in one of the chairs provided and listen to the creek; remember why you came on vacation! Tennessee law prohibits smoking in hotel/motels, so smoke outside if you must, but be considerate and do so downwind. Because of its excellent value and location (a short, flat walk from the "strip") rooms fill up quickly, so contact them well in advance to ensure availability.
