The price was reasonable and the room they showed us was nice, but the one we got wasn't as nice. We had actually spent two nights at another motel and decided the bed was so uncomfortable that we booked here...the king bed was comfortable and clean. The room was ok though I never really felt like it was truly clean,...

We took a chance on this place out of the blue; went in to ask room prices and clerk said $69 which was below the $100 plus i expected so we booked for two nights. He went outside to show me the parking spot and noticed our collector car and said to wait a minute because he wanted to switch...

Stopped for a night on our way through town. The room was very spacious with a king bed and a balcony overlooking the river. The sound of the gentle rapids below was very relaxing. Although the room was a little bit dated, it was layed out well and was well appointed with a mini frig, microwave and coffee maker. It...

Some of the Tripadvisor reviews of this motel were brutal, so I guess I took a chance when I booked online before actually seeing the place. The price was right, and the bubbling brook was as advertized. This is not exactly "downtown Gatlinburg". Quite conveniently located just north of the congestion zone of the real center of G'burg, you probably...

We arrived at 10:00am knowing checking in wasn't until 3 pm, And the front desk clerk let us go ahead and check in early. Which I am glad he did. The room was on the very end of the hotel which the partking was hard to get to since we was driving a full size truck. Wifi did not work...

Front desk very nice and helpful. Comfortable bed, other furniture kind of old. Assigned parking. Close to trolley stops. Private balcony over the river was great. We will stay there again. It's on the Pigeon Forge end of town right across from Hilbilly Golf.

We have been staying at this motel street side since our honeymoon in 1968. It has always held fond memories for us and our children. Last June 2012 was our last stay until new carpet can be installed. The smell was dirty and moldy and turned our bare feet black from the filth. The ice machine was out of order...

We stayed here on 5/3 and were VERY satisfied with our accomodations. Yes, it is a bit outdated......but the king room overlooking the roaring river more than makes up for that. The room was squeaky clean, the front desk very nice. We had one issue with our bathtub, no stopper in the tub, but they immediately took care of this....

I am currently staying here, found pee in toilet upon entering room, a nasty mold covered piece of banana and cereal were in floor, and best of all a used condom, yes I said used condom in between mattress and headboard!! Utterly disgusting, worst night ever......paid $68 for all that too.....what a waste
