The location is good because it's close to all the attractions, yet it's on River Rd so it's more quiet than on the Parkway. The entrance to the Smokies is a very short distance. We even walked to it one night for a casual stroll on that very relaxing trail along the river. You need to drive for all the other trails. We had an end room with a balcony on the river. The room had a noticeable smell when you first walked in, but it ended up not bothering me. My husband was more bothered by it & I'm usually the one that's bothered by smells. The closet really had a smell & we just kept the door shut & didn't put anything in it. The shower had one of those old style small heads, but the pressure was good. It had a curved shower rod with a good curtain, so no sticking to you. Both of us thought the bed was comfortable enough. The sliding glass door to the balcony was always so clean I thought they left it open when I first walked in. Sure, the place has seen better days, but we weren't in our room all that much & when we were we were outside on the balcony. Bottom line is I'd stay in our same room all over again.
