“Great place”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Just left after 4 day at old creek. This was my 4th time in 3 years. Staff friend as always. Best location to stay. Close to town but off the main strip. Don't miss out on this place. Sit out by the creek and enjoy the rushing water.

Enjoyed our 2 night stay while in Gatlinburg. The room was clean and the view and sounds of the river from the balcony was very nice and relaxing. I had issues getting onto the WIFI, but the front desk went above and beyond till the issue was resolved with the cable company. My only suggestion is to better seal the main door to the room. It needed a door sweep and weatherstripping, was able to see light all around the door when closed. But overall, a nice place to stay at when in Gatlinburg!

Typically my husband and I rent a cabin when we visit Gatlinburg but for our last stay we were only going to be there for the weekend so we decided to check out this hotel. Hotel is in a very peaceful location with the stream off the balcony but very close for walking to all of the shops and restaurants. We found the room to be clean and nicely decorated. We arrived later than anticipated and the front desk was very kind and helpful when we arrived. Breakfast was a bit bare but it was free! We would definitely consider staying here again.

We stayed here for our 10 year anniversary and was not disappointed. Loved the decor! Older hotel (I remember when it was a Fairfield Inn years ago), but it is clean and updated. Great location, you can leave your car and walk to everything in Gatlinburg. Loved the balcony over the creek, the fireplace, and the shower was beautiful. Small pool, but it was warm (we swam in the rain). Lady at front desk was very friendly, nice breakfast, and cookies in the afternoon. Will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms are right over parking garage, could be noisy from cars underneath.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. Much better than I expected for the price. It appears to be an older hotel, but the rooms have been very nicely updated and very clean. Beds are older, but comfortable. Love the view from the balcony of the creek. Great location. Will definitely stay here again.

We spent a week traveling throughout the Smoky Mountains and stayed here 2 nights. It was by far one of my favorite places that we stayed. We found it to be very centrally located to everything we did in Gatlinburg. Yet off the strip enough that it wasn't crowded and loud. We found the room to be very nice for the price and the view of the creek was amazing. I loved sitting outside at night with a glass of wine and in the morning with a glass of coffee and listening to the creek. If we go to Gatlinburg in the future we will definitely stay here again. The staff was all very helpful as well.

Stayed July 2014

My wife and I have made this our own vacation getaway tradition. The rooms are very clean and remarkably huge. The beds are ultra-comfortable. Free WiFi! The walk-in tiled shower is amazing and the extra large jacuzzi is only outdone by the extra small price. This has got to be the best value for a hotel room I have ever been privileged to enjoy! You ABSOLUTELY CANNOT go wrong staying here!
