“A Great Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

My family and I spent the weekend of September 21-23 in Gatlinburg, TN and stay at the Old Creek Lodge. Our room was very comfortable, with a gas fireplace and a nice view of the creek below from our balcony. Best of all, the room was VERY clean. The housekeeping staff (our housekeeper's name was Rhonda and she did a great job!) were all very friendly and courteous as well. We all felt that this was an affordable and enjoyable place to stay.

For $90 a night we got what we usually pay $200 for in other places.
A gas fireplace, a Jacuzzi tab, and a private balcony over a stream with mountain views.
We drove here from NYC and stopped for the night on a chain motel in VA, paid a lot more for a lot less.

Here now came in for three days but go home in the morning. Friendly staff clean rooms. Have stayed in many places this is as good as any. David left a note and mints this morning. You have to try this place.

Spent 3 nights Sept 11-14. Very clean quiet and very close 1-2 miles from the entrance to the National Park. The basic breakfast stuff toast, juice, coffee and a make your own waffle machine. On our 3rd day we decided we needed a more substantial breakfast and went to the very good Pancake Pantry in town. Staff was nice and our room was well maintained by housekeeping. I highly recommend this and we will return here on our next visit.

We love this hotel. It's new, great size for a couple and probably for at least 2 more kids. It has a jacuzzi, fire place and balcony at the back overlooking the river. Very quiet place. Just park your car and it's walking distance in downtown, ober gatlinburg tramway, shops, restaurants, all Ripley's museums, chairlift, name it!
Just don't expect a big swimming pool, it's outside and they don't have a gym. I got the chance to jog outside downtown at 8am on a Sunday though and people were just starting to pick-up. It's a great experience anyway. We will probably stay here again unless we want to do some people watching in the balcony right at downtown.

We spent 3 nights at Old Creek Lodge (Aug 21-23) and were quite pleased. We were in room 210...King Suite. Most important priority to us is CLEAN!! Freshly painted and updated. The only thing that did not look new was the carpet...but it was clean because walking in white socks did not leave them dirty. We especially liked the nice tile shower with plenty of hot water and the balcony over the river. From our balcony we were also able to see the Ober Gatlinburg Tram as it came and went very nearby. Tracy was super! Such a sweet person. We loved the location because we were able to walk one block to the main strip and spend whatever time we wanted there but quickly be back to our room and away from the noise, which we noticed was extremely elevated from the last time we had visited Gatlinburg. Also we noticed some very offensive happenings on the main strip that were a surprise to us due to the fact that Gatlinburg has in the past been a family oriented place. I would recommend to the city fathers that they get this type of behavior under control before it ruins the reputation of the city. There were patrons of a place called Hogs and Honeys who were sitting at the bar there looking out over the sidewalks and making lots of offensive comments to and about people in very loud voices. We noticed that families with small children were hurrying away from the area. We did not tarry close by either. It was highly offensive and certainly not in good taste. We were so glad that we were not staying on the main strip around all that. But, that said, we enjoyed our trip very much and appreciate the pricing and comfort of Old Creek Lodge. We recommend that you walk that 1/2 block over to Bennett's on the corner for the breakfast buffet. Very good, country style cooking and all you can eat for a reasonable price. Oh, I almost forgot, we saw 4 little river otters early one morning running along the river edge underneath our balcony. Cute!! Thanks Old Creek for a great stay!
