This place is great! The staff was nice and helpful, and the hotel was very clean. Three minute walk max to the main strip in Gatlinburg. If you're looking for a view make sure you get riverside and not mountain side. We did not care much so we got mountain side and it isnt anything to look at really. They also left a wonderful note and champagne glasses for our anniversary. It's a very quiet hotel. I would recommend staying here. Also side note, the parking deck isnt terrible but the ceiling is very low, so just be weary of that.
