“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Not worth the money. The stream was nice off the balcony. Is very old and dated. The breakfast was terrible. It was stated as a full breakfast was only dry bagels and a egg casserole that wasn't ready when they opened and the coffee was cold. Would not stay here again.

Older hotel with spacious rooms, fireplace, balcony overlooking brook. Badly in need of up-grade - carpet was very stained. Beds were clean and comfortable, bath was clean - thouugh fixtures were old, wear/tear on the facility is obvious. Elevator broke down shortly after we arrived. Breakfast didn't start until 8 a.m. Coffee only, and attendent had to keep making it. Toaster kept trowing the circuit breaker. Only fruit were some apples and didn't appear very fresh. Staff was friendly enough, but couldn't get the computer to work to provide a receipt at checkout. Over-priced. Could be a really nice facility with up-grades and then the price would be about right.

A lovely place with very friendly staff. The fireplaces in rooms are great. The balcony overlooking the brook.is great. We also slept with the window open to listen its just so peaceful and nice. The jacuzzi tub was a surprise but nothing to write home about. We'll be back

This motel is quite old and shows it's age but was clean and spacious. The balcony overlooking the stream made the stay perfect. However the free breakfast was probably one of the worst we have ever had in a hotel. We ended up going to a Pancake place across the street.

My wife and I just checked in and got to our room after a long traffic filled trip to find an amazing space that immediately made us feel at home! I'm sure that from our very first viewpoint that this place and stay will not disappoint! Thank you in advance Brookside...I know we will be back in the future!

This became our fall back hotel since the first was terrible. It was little bit costly for the age of the hotel. But beggers could not be choosers. Overall we liked it. The creek helped with sleeping, fireplace was cool, size of room was great. Door did stick and was hard to open and the elevator slammed open and shut. But the rooms were solid so unless something was really loud like a car alarm, you could not hear anything like at other hotels. Breakfast was free and simple, again free. I would recommend.

Room Tip: Get into newer part.

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon in the smokies we found this place through Travelocity. The hotel staff here was so friendly and helpful i couldnt belive it. We travel a lot as professional wrestlers and have stayed in dozens and dozens of hotels. The staff here was by far the most outgoing friendly people we've encountered. The pool and hot tub was Awesome and our room was HUGE! We got upgraded to the king we had a fireplace a full kitchen and a big hot tub in the bathroom. We highly reccomend this place as we will stay here every year for our anniversary we possibly can.
