Whenever I visit Gatlinburg, I either stay at the Bear Skin Lodge, or the Old Creek Lodge. I prefer the Old Creek because all of the rooms are on the stream, and it always seems a little nicer. I had to a stay at the Bear Skin in March because there wasn't any vacancies at Old Creek, and it needed...

This is our second time to stay here. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff (Tim, Nancy, Gary, Dalton and all the others that I didn't catch their names) couldn't be any better in any way. Our room had a balcony overlooking a creek and next to Ober Ski Lift. Brought our breakfast up there every morning and sat their before...

The staff was very accommodating considering how late we got there and how short notice we booked. They took care of our needs, and the room was once again Top Notch! I can't find a better price and quality for as close to the main strip in Gatlinburg as this place is. It is literally 1 block from downtown, yet...

Good location, close to main street, shops and restaurants. Gas fireplace in spacious room, large bathroom & shower. Balcony over 2 creeks, with view of mountains. Everything clean and in good order, very comfortable. Free breakfast downstairs with hot waffles. Staff very helpful. My son and I really enjoyed our 4-day stay, and will stay again.

Just back from Gatlinburg TN and I'm raving about the Old Creek Lodge, probably the finest medium priced hotel I've ever stayed at. The room is huge, the furniture handcrafted from branches and bark, and every balcony hangs over a babbling creek. The style is forest chic to say the least. Quiet as a tomb and exceptionally clean I can't...

You cant beat the location. It is close enough to walk to everything in Gatlinburg yet in a spot where it is nice an quiet and away from all the noise from the main drag. The best, and I mean best, thing here is that every room over looks a creek. With a shorter hotel on the other side and...

This was our first stay at this Motel. (Our regular Motel was booked) We where taken aback by the service and the quality of the facility. We can highly recommend this Motel. It is located within easy walking distance to all the attractions.

We had a great stay at Old Creek Lodge. The staff was terrific. We had a couple of small issues and the staff was right on it. Our room was comfy and clean and the location was great! We will stay again.
