We stayed here only one night with our two children. The place is well kept and the staff very friendly. The breakfast was good and the guy in charge was also friendly. We enjoyed the heated pool and jacuzzi. Is not a ritz Carlton but it's very nice.

Fast check-in, cleanest, most comfortable hotel I've stayed in. Ask for a room facing the river, beautiful view. Breakfast buffet was great, country ham was the featured meat. Close to lots of attractions, we will definitely stay here again.

My teen daughter and I stayed here for a short girls getaway. I reserved a "river view" room with a balcony. If you haven't been to Pigeon Forge, please note that the river through town is little more than a shallow creek. And the hotel next door was very close. However, the small balcony allowed you to sit and watch...

This is a wonderful hotel in Pigeon Forge. We had a room with a Jacuzzi, fire place and a small balcony that overlooked the river. We absolutely loved it. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. Popcorn and refreshments in the evening were a nice touch. Breakfast was certainly a nice selection and enough for what we...

Greatest and most friendly staff ever. We have stayed here for many years and will never stay anywhere else. Extra clean, great breakfast, great amenities, great location and the ability to get a room we need due to health issues make this our only choice of hotels.
