Front desk very nice and helpful. Comfortable bed, other furniture kind of old. Assigned parking. Close to trolley stops. Private balcony over the river was great. We will stay there again. It's on the Pigeon Forge end of town right across from Hilbilly Golf.

We have been staying at this motel street side since our honeymoon in 1968. It has always held fond memories for us and our children. Last June 2012 was our last stay until new carpet can be installed. The smell was dirty and moldy and turned our bare feet black from the filth. The ice machine was out of order...

We stayed here on 5/3 and were VERY satisfied with our accomodations. Yes, it is a bit outdated......but the king room overlooking the roaring river more than makes up for that. The room was squeaky clean, the front desk very nice. We had one issue with our bathtub, no stopper in the tub, but they immediately took care of this....

Utterly disgusting, worst night ever......paid $68 for all that too.....what a waste

We got a week night special there for $49 plus tax. It was a very clean room hanging over a roaring creek. We also had a fireplace. The management there is very nice and helpful. We for sure recommend this place and will continue to go there.

Great location in Gatlinburg unfortunately the rooms are in need of serious repair!! Bathroom was not clean. The wall heater was very loud. Very outdated hotel. You definitely get what you pay for with this location. Staff was friendly and helpful.
