This is really a Gatlinburg "Gem". The rooms are a tad outdated, but very clean and fresh smelling! We had a king room with a balcony overlooking the stream. It was wonderful! At night you could hear the constant sound of the soothing water as you slept. In the morning when we sat out on the balcony, ducks came swimming by. They were fun to watch. Hotel staff was WONDERFUL! Everyone was extremely helpful and nice. The hot tub in the main pool area was out while we were there, kind of inconvenient, but there was another hot tub in a gazebo that was very nice. The indoor pool area is much smaller than in the pictures and could use some updating, but was pleasant enough. At night, they have a wine and cheese tasting and that was very nice, and also an area you can sit out by a bonfire. Very close walk to the main Parkway area, one morning we walked to the Aquarium and it only took a few minutes to get there. The only negative was driving OUT of the hotel, it is in a difficult to see location to get out in traffic. We will absolutely stay again!
