    We were there with family and friends for our wedding! We had a wonderful stay! Staff was friendly and helpful! The parking is a little tight if you drive a larger truck! I would definitely recommend this hotel!!

    Very nice little place

    Booked a balcony room and got a spacious corner spot with fireplace overlooking the creek, perfect! Pool was not open yet (May 25), tho. Easy walk to the main drag or along the River Road to avoid the crowds. Short hike into the park. Pros: Covered parking, newly tiled baths. Cons: cold breakfast and no bar. Would stay again.

    Nice weekend getaway

    Hotel was great. We had a room that overlooked the stream. For Gatlinburg it was a quiet location. We were very pleased. Everything was in walking distance. You could even walk to the National Park if you wanted.

    Great location and friendly service

    Our stay was amazing! The room was perfect for two adults and three children. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony looking at the water rushing by us. The staff members were all very friendly and happy to help meet our needs. The hotel was in a great spot for walking to the main strip. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a decently priced room close enough to walk to the attractions!!

    Nice hotel, dont plan on breakfast during covid

    Nice hotel, clean and comfortable. Overall great stay. Only issue i had with the property was that when i booked it over a month in advance there was no mention of the free breakfast being a grab and go. That was very disappointing, when i was booking, we were looking to see a way to save money on our trip and the breakfast provided was very minimal. All they had was muffins,juice, apples or yogurt. Ended up having to buy breakfast pretty much everyday we were there which defeated the purpose.
