The room decor was fairly modern. The bed was much too firm for my taste. The room was clean. The entrance door to our room and every room in the building was heavy and loud when opened or closed. The walls are very thin and we could hear every sound from the neighboring room, almost as if we were in... More

We went in to check about getting a room for a couple of night and Linda offered to let us check out a couple of rooms before committing. That was so nice. This is the first time I was offered that instead of having to ask for it. We chose the two queen suite overlooking the creek, with a fireplace... More

Old creek lodge is the perfect place for a couples getaway.The area is just back behind the main parkway,but close to everything if you wanted to walk.The rooms are large and cozy with a large stone fireplace,and believe me we kept it on considering it was 8 degrees in Gatlinburg several mornings . Bed was a little hard but that... More

First time staying here and they did not disappoint. Very nice sized rooms with a fireplace and clean. Great tiled walk-in shower was a great feature. Perfect location in town. The rate was far lower than many of the places we checked for the holiday weekend. Thought we got a great value for what was offered. Will definitely stay here... More

For what they charge a night you would expect the best, with the property and the employees. I was told I would receive my government discount upon check in and when I arrived to check in they stated they don't issue any discounts around holidays. No big deal just don't quote me 2 different prices. The woman I encounter upon... More

By far the nicest hotel in the area! Right in the middle of everything. All rooms are creek side and it is always so clean! The staff is extremely friendly, check in is always quick and easy. There is a nice continental breakfast. I am always happy to return ☺

The desk staff overcharged my account,causing the bank to hold the money over-drafting my account. The sink and tub leaked. The fireplace was on a fifteen min. timer and we had to keep getting up to reset it. The breakfast was mediocre at best.

Loud squeaky bed, loud fan on heater blowing on and off all night, dumpster pick-up right next to rooms at 4am. Did like gas fireplace. Would not recommend this place. Better places in Gat and Pigeon Forge.

This hotel isn't the same clean hotel I remember. The bed is uncomfortable and the rooms aren't just okay when it comes to clean. My husband and I hadn't stayed at this hotel in about a year or longer. I wouldn't spend the $90 bucks again on this hotel because there is better in Gatlinburg.
