“Stay Oct 5-8th”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

This was a cute place in Gatlinburg! We were not disappointed. Very clean!! My kids loved it. We took walks at night and sat by the creek. The pool was closed but it was in the 80's and they said if you can stand the cold go ahead. Very friendly. No wifi which was not a problem. The only suggestion I would make is have another trash can in the room. There was a pretty big one in bathroom but if you eat in your room it fills up fast. We are thinking about staying a night in Jan! We stay w/ my mom (timeshares) and we stay here before to make our trip a little longer. It was a peaceful experience.

We just love Marshall's Creek. Just returned from a wonderful stay.....again! We took friends this time and they also fell in love. Quite, clean and always friendly. If you are looking for a fancy hotel go elsewhere! If you are looking for a clean, quite and family place this is it!

We have always wanted to stay here, but hotel has always been booked. We got lucky and was able to get the family room. It was like stepping back in time! Loved it. Very clean. I have stayed in hotels that were much more expensive, and were dirty. The owners and staff take pride in this little gem. The Trenthams are the last of family owned hotels, I'm afraid. If you're looking for all the bells and whistles, then this place isn't for you. But if you want hospitality and a quiet place to relax, then this is it. Just a very short walk to the Village, and main parkway. We will be back, IF we are able yo get a room booked! Lol!

We stayed here during the last week of September because of the reviews they received on tripadvisor and the cost of staying here. Generally you sacrifice some things to stay in a place that is less expensive. No wifi, but we knew that before we went. It was a great place to stay. Easy walking distance to Gatlinburg. Very friendly staff, even gave us a good recommendation for breakfast one morning.

Room Tip: We stayed in two rooms. Room 12 was smaller, but very comfortable. Room 2 is larger.

We were just driving around looking for a place to stay when I seen the cutest hotel I had ever seen. The office was closed but there was a number to call on the door. That was the best phone call ever...it took me back to a time where people trusted each other. And friendly doesn't even begin to describe how we were treated. This place feels like home...we go to the smokies several times a year and we will never stay any where else....I Love It Here....

I arrived later than expected and the office was closed. But there was a note on the door with my name on it, notifying me of my room number and that the key was in the door. Gotta love that. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly. I'll go back.

Pros: Excellent value, spotless, location, location, location, nostalgic. Be prepared for a step back in time; when room keys are just that, a key; when room doors could be left open to allow fresh mountain air in all night if you wished because there's also a little latch lock on the screen door (there's also a window in the bathroom so open it and the front door to really get your room mountain fresh!); wooden paneled walls & working double wooden paned windows give you a true cabin feel, quilts adorn the beds and coffee is always fresh and available in the office. Top it all off with a babbling creek and short 2 minute walk to the Village for fresh baked donuts & coffee for your morning fare. Trolley stops directly in front of the motel. Extremely close to the strip (3min walk tops,). Our teenage daughter loved the fact that we werent surrounded by loud obnoxious guests, but rather older folks who appreciated the peace and quite this place provided. She said "you know its a good place to stay when sweet old folks stay there" and she couldnt be farther from the truth!! This is a no frills, no bells, no whistles and no wallet busting place to stay & play in Gatlinburg!

Cons: unless you're looking for bells & whistles, there are no cons.

Amenities not to expect: no complimentary toiletries, no WiFi, no ironing board, no blow dryer, no breakfast, no website with more info (they still do pencil & paper bookeeping:) no 24 hr desk help or concierge.

Theres no online reservation! Call early, as far in advance as possible, as this quaint 19 room gem fills up fast!!
