The hotel is just a short walk from the heart of downtown Gattlinburg with a wonderful view of the river from your hotel balcony. Pigeon Forge is only a short drive away with many things to do and plenty of places to eat as well.

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The property Is on the outskirts of town so be prepared for a long walk both ways. The outside is old but the room had been redone. Not a real fire place as advertised but an electric screen. No soap or shampoo in room at all. I was in the middle of a shower and was upset to discover every soap, shampoo, and conditioner dispenser was empty. No soap at sink either. When we called the front desk they said it would take about 30 minutes to bring it to us. There was very few other people staying there. My husband finally went to the front desk and they gave us paper cups filled with soap and shampoo that we had to use to refill their dispensers for them. The only decent thing about our stay was their outdoor hot tub which was nice and hot. I would not recommend this hotel.

4/5 Good

The sound of the river from the balcony was wonderful! If I stay here again I would request a first floor room. Navigating the elevator and doors to the other floors was a little annoying.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family and small children
Stayed Dec 30-Jan 1 I understand it was during holidays but the price they charged us was definitely not up to their hotel standers $275 a night. 2 days later their prices are $45. Very disappointed as it’s a very old and not up dated, you can hear everything from your neighbors, over all I won’t be returning.
