The place was pretty good! Nice staff, nice pool, nice rooms, the location was OK. For the price it's good! I give it a 4 out of 5. We would prob stay again. You can't beat the price! The only downside is the loud people staying next to us, but that wasn't the hotels fault..

I've stayed here twice and will stay here every year when I come back. Love the jacuzzi suite I get one every time and use it a lot. It's so relaxing after a day of walking around in gatlinburg. The rooms are clean the breakfast is good and the staff is great.

I got a river-view room with a hot tub, and although some of the controls were broken, the set-up was lovely. The room was sparkling clean, with a refrigerator and a microwave, and the free breakfast is a great way to start the day. I didn't use the pool, but I enjoyed watching the river and all the water birds....
