My husband and I recently stayed five nights at Bearskin Lodge. It was quiet and a good value. We were able to explore almost all of Gatlinburg walking from our hotel room. We had a view of the creek and a fireplace in our room. The gravy and biscuits for breakfast were amazing, but healthier options were also available. The...

Great place to stay with great staff in a very busy vacation town with an extremely high number of options for lodging. I would recommend this hotel in the early spring season. Close to the park and short walk to anywhere.

Overall we are extremely satisfied. The room was great! We were able to stretch out comfortably in the 2 person Jacuzzi. The breakfast was awful, eat out if that's an option for you (I would have rated this "excellent" if the breakfast was better). It's a couple of blocks from Ober Gatlinburg, so within walking distance of everything downtown Gatlinburg....

overall the hotel was acceptable but our room next to the main elevator vibrated the wall and bed, especially annoying at 2 - 4am. Breakfast is normal continental but there are no eggs.

Great service at Checkin, nice rooms, perfect location. Had to complain In middle of night due to neighbors using profanity that did not stop. Front desk only offered a 20% refund for the one night. I was too tired to fight but wouldn't recommend this Lodge if you want to rest and relax due to noise (from potential neighbors).

The room was clean and great, the fireplace was perfect for the unseasonably cold weather experienced while in town, the bathroom tiles were still so cold it was shocking! But I'd bet money those would feel like heaven in the warm summer months. The walls were a bit thin... Free breakfast in the mornings was a plus and greatly appreciated...

The man who checked us in was very friendly and informative about the area. The rooms were nice with hardwood floors and an easy to use fireplace. The location is nice. It's within walking distance of the main rd, but just far enough away. We had a nice view of a small creek. I would ask for a lower floor....

We stayed 2 nights with Old Creek and felt very welcomed. Every staff member we had contact with were awesome. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed sitting on our balcony enjoying the river. Thank you to all of you who made our stay wonderful.

We've stayed here several times and have never had a bad experience. We went for my mother's 80th birthday and the staff were very nice. She loved the entire weekend trip and the balcony view over the creek is beautiful.
