Room was very clean. The view from the balcony was amazing. The hotel is off the main strip but close enough to walk to all main attractions. We will stay here the next time we are in town. Highly recommend this hotel!

Room was clean. The view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful. We are planning on staying here next year, so close to all the action downtown, but yet off the strip where it was quiet and peaceful!!!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on our first trip to Gatlinburg. The hotel was very nice, clean, furniture was new. The private balcony was very nice and my opinion the best part of the hotel. The views were wonderful, you could see the Ober lift going up and down the mountain, the river right in front of...

I decided to stay here after I discovered that this hotel is actually on the creek. (I had booked with the Hilton, then saw that it is actually across the street from the creek.) Above all, I wanted a balcony facing the creek and every room gets that here. Other amenities include a fridge, microwave, fireplace and very nice tiled...

This was our second stay here and definitely will continue to come back! The employees are fantastic! The balcony was freshly painted and looked great! The room was spotless. Complimentary breakfast was just what we needed before heading out for the day. Great job!

All rooms have a private balcony overlooking a creek. The rooms are large and comfortable, each with a gas fireplace. It is within walking distance of many restaurants and...
