We enjoyed the location, check-in staff was very friendly, and price was very competitive. Major issue with the gnats and other crawling insects that we found all over our room. This place needs to have a better pest control program in place.

If you want to enjoy the mountain seclusion feel yet be a short walk to all of the action & shopping, then this is the place to stay! Our room is extremely clean, has a nice rustic feel. The pool is clean and not over chlorinated like some places. The staff is helpful and friendly. The view from the room...

First time here in 38 years of Gatlinburg adventures, it won't be the last. Peaceful, comfortable, clean, roomy, fast wifi. Refrigerator, microwave, lots of storage, huge bathroom vanity. Great balcony overlooking the creek and lots of trees, love that sound! You can hardly see Gatlinburg, even though it's a only block away from the action. Didn't have time to try...

I've stayed many places in Gatlinburg but once we found this place, we won't stay anywhere else. The hotel is older and not fancy by any means but it is always very clean and it's central location on the river is unmatched. The hotel is located in the center of town but across the river from the road so it...

We have been staying here since the 1980's and it's become a tradition. Great location, can walk to most restaurants and aquarium. All rooms face the stream and you can hear the water running from inside your room. It seems like you are out away from the hustle and bustle. It is rustic, not a "luxury" place, but well kept...

This hotel is downtown and you can walk to everything! The room was very spacious and comfortable.. The staff also very friendly. The doughnuts are amazing and the coffee hot and delicious.. All the rooms seem to have a stream for a view and a small balcony to relax on. Would highly recommend!!!

My father introduced me to this hotel. We stay frequently when traveling to Gatlinburg. It is a little old school but that is what we love about it. It is right next to the river so you can open the door and listen to the creek run. It is everything as I remember as a kid going to Gatlinburg as...

This is an older hotel, but that is just part of it's charm. It is not fancy but it is very clean and the rooms are spacious. The property is located within walking distance to all of the major attractions and restaurants. We had a private balcony overlooking the river which was great. Breakfast of delicious homemade doughnuts brought to...

This is our favorite place to stay. Although it isn't the "fanciest" place, the rooms are clean and the staff is great. Each room has a private balcony over the river. We always sleep with the balcony door open (in the summer) so we can sleep to the sounds of the water running below. It is centrally located so you...

If you can get past the 80's decor, this is a great place to stay. It is convenient to the strip and is always immaculate. The pool is heated and you are served a continental breakfast every morning. My parents have been staying here for over 35 years and have converted my family and I into loyal patrons.
