Two day stay
We had a comfortable stay. We were on the lower level, close to the office and we heard cars slamming doors and horns honking when the cars were locked. Began about 4 in the morning. We will definitely stay again, just request an upper room far from the office. The employees that we encountered were all very friendly and helpful.

it was close to downtown, but on the edge, so traffic to other places was better.

Sad face IconDisliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
My husband and I went to Gatlinburg on our honeymoon and stayed here. The hotel is on a river, which was one of the nicest things about it. Our room had a very pretty view. It is in walking distance of anything on the strip. However, this hotel is in desperate need of renovations. Our room was very small. The wall paper is cracked in many places, the walls need new paint, the shower did not have hot water and the toilet would take a few minutes before it stopped running. Our room was clean but we were disappointed in what we got for the price. It’s a very small, older hotel.
