We booked our hotel stay for one night in mid May 2013. We were glad that we had a courtyard facing room. When you open the outside door to the rooms that face the pool, the smell of chorine almost knocked me over. That would not be good for someone who was cholrine sensitive. Our room was comfortable. The bed linens and mattress were average. It was hard to control the temperature of the room beacuse our room had an old school wall air conditioning unit where we could not set an exact degree, just low or high cool and the turn dial hot or cold switch. We woke up with a stuffy room at night as a result. The room was clean and the front office staff was cordial. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. If I were spending a few more nights in Pigeon Forge, I probably would have opted for a little more expensive hotel for the added comfort and ability to set the room temperature. I have to admit that at the time of our booking, this hotel was rated number 8 out of 90 something hotels in Pigeon Forge. I was a little disappointed in the number 8 rating.

Room Tip: Choose an outside facing room. Rooms facing the indoor pool smell of chlorine. Most rooms are Mote...

This was our first time staying here. It was great! We were on the ground floor with an inside corner room. Very quiet & was a short walk to pool and breakfast. The pool area was very nice. We would definitely come back.

I really enjoyed the stay. We did two double beds and a non-smoking room. It was nice, it was near the inside where the pool was. Although I would have felt more secure if there had been some type of locking mechanism on the glass door that separated inside from outside rooms. It made it more comfortable for me. We did not venture to the pool, because it was always packed. Not the hotels' fault, I am sure they were glad they were busy. The only complaint was the breakfast. The eggs were cold, even when they brought out more, they were cold. But all in all it was a family friendly environment and I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose a non-smoking. They are not outside rooms.

The hotel is decorated well not outdated. They have a good breakfast in the morning. Its clean and it has an indoor pool and the river is right behind it with lots of ducks and geese to feed.
(the only cons were that there was an adult diaper left in the closet,kinda gross..)

Room Tip: Get to breakfast early or you will not want to go at all because the line will be way to long. Also...

We have stayed multiple times at this location. The breakfast bar is always fresh and delicious. Our rooms are clean, although a little small if you have two children. But there is plenty to do, so who needs a room?! Staff are friendly and we love being on the river.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side are noisy. Poolside rooms are until pool closes.
