This is a great hotel convenient to downtown Gatlinburg. The staff there is excellent and very nice. They were very helpful every time we had questions and offered discounts or advice when they were able to. It has a lazy river, fire pits out front at night and complimentary cookies every afternoon. Complimentary breakfast also. All within walking distance to...

I went on a school trip for a music competition. Because of this, I didn't spend a huge amount of time in the hotel, but for the time that I did, it was nice. Cons: -The staircase leads into the car park, which wouldn't be a problem if I wasn't leaving early in the morning or kind of late at...

When we walked in we were greeted with the most amazing staff. Terry and Joe were exceptional and not only were...

Last minute trip to Gatlinburg with my hubby. We didn't have reservations and the staff was great about getting us a room. The hotel and our room were super clean. The view from our room was great. And location next to Peddler was awesome. Plus, they had fresh baked cookies in foyer 24/7 that were amazing!!

We had a room on the river. Balcony door left open all night to the sound of the water. April weather was 60'so and just right. The room was amazing. So clean and spacious. One street back from the strip so we were walking distance from entertainment, great food, shopping. The continental breakfast was the best I ever had. Sausage,...

We love to stay at this hotel. The people who work the desk make us feel welcome every time we come. Our room was very clean and we really enjoyed the balcony. It was on the "city" side but still had a lovely view of the mountains. They have a fire pit for chilly nights. In the summer, we enjoy...
