We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lodge. The location to in Gatlinburg and proximity to the park were absolutely perfect. The staff from the desk to cleaning staff were very personable, friendly and helpful with tips of what to do in town and Smokey Mountain National Park. The view of the stream from our room was absolutely wonderful. Our...

Although we only stayed one night, we enjoyed the huge room, perfect location, friendly service, easy parking. Walk to everything, but the area is quiet. The small balcony over the creek was a bonus. Breakfast was adequate, but they don't have a lot of for guests to dine.

My husband and I were on a road trip to Gatlinburg and really looking forward to our stay at the Old Creek Lodge. We stayed one night only and selected it mostly based on reviews posted on TripAdvisor. We had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the river. It was very large with fireplace and wood floors; very clean...

My husband and I were guests at the Old Creek Lodge in August 2015. The room was so beautiful. It was very clean. Everything in the room worked great. The mattress was extremely comfortable. We enjoyed the view and the sounds of the river from our balcony. One evening we watched a family of river otters playing up and down...

Stayed here 2 nights and was quite happy. The rooms are large with fireplaces and wood floors and large bathrooms have walkin tile showers. My balcony overlooked the river and if i left my door open all I could hear was the flow of the water. Other reviews have commented on the noise and although I did clearly hear someone...

This was actually our second time staying here and we would most likely stay here again. It is very clean, the staff is friendly, location is great and the breakfast is nice. My only complaint with here is the mattresses. They do not appear to be old, just not of good quality and makes for a rough night of sleeping....

We had a great stay at this lodge! Our room was beautiful and had great decor that made our experience even more wonderful! Our balcony over the river included river otters, which we did not expect. The location is ideal and quiet off of the strip. Walking distance to many things. The staff at the front desk were amazing and...

We stayed here with our 8 month old and older child recently. It was very quiet and nice at this hotel. The view of the river on the back porch was peaceful, we even saw some river otters playing in the river one night! There is easy access to the main road in Gatlinburg for shopping too.
