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...

My husband and I recently stayed five nights at Bearskin Lodge. It was quiet and a good value. We were able to explore almost all of Gatlinburg walking from our hotel room. We had a view of the creek and a fireplace in our room. The gravy and biscuits for breakfast were amazing, but healthier options were also available. The...

Overall we are extremely satisfied. The room was great! We were able to stretch out comfortably in the 2 person Jacuzzi. The breakfast was awful, eat out if that's an option for you (I would have rated this "excellent" if the breakfast was better). It's a couple of blocks from Ober Gatlinburg, so within walking distance of everything downtown Gatlinburg....

My wife and I have talked about staying here for a while now. We finally got our chance when we decided to take a long weekend. It was a great choice. Our room had very comfortable beds, whirlpool tub for 2, and a fire place. They are in the process of remodeling but caused no problems with us. Looking forward...

Went down to Gatlinburg for a long weekend, curious how bad the fires damage things, evidently so did everyone else, found a room online at the Bearskin lodge. It was a nice room, clean and friendly. They had two fire pits out front at night to take the chill off as well as fire places in the room. It was...

My husband and I stayed her for a short anniversary trip. Beautiful motel!! The beds were super comfy! The only thing, we had a creekside room, the next time I'll get the city view. Loved the creek sound, but you are looking right into another motel. Definitely will return!

Have stayed at this Hotel several times. Located half block to the park. Easy walking to shops and restaurants. Rooms are roomy with large chairs to read or watch TV at night. Fireplace is great during the winter when we visited last time.

Great place, great location. This is the place we will stay when we visit the Gatlinburg. The location puts us around our other favorite dinning spots. You are within walking distance of everything you would want to do while you are there.
