The staff was very friendly and helpful. The property was clean and sanitized but very old and needing some updates. Everything was very old and the pool and hot tub were overcrowded and the pool area needed attention. It was walkable but pretty far hike down the street to walk to the center of gatlinburg.

The property was not cleaned.

The indoor pool was great. The lady at the front desk very nice. The room needs alot of upgrades very disappointing. The maid service didnt knock just started to come into the room 45 min before xheckout and saw me half naked.

liked the cafe but was noisy with the all the kids

The lights kept blinking on and off the guests of ours in next room had NO WATER in there room sink , Our last day ran out of HOT water NO AMENTIES. Suggest no one stay here ! Will not reccomend

Convenient location. The staffs are very friendly. The most unique part is that our balcony is right on top of the creek. The big tree, rock, running water, even baby bear climbing on the balcony… everything is right in front of you as soon as open the eyes… what a nice experience!

The property has a centipede infestation and smells of mildew and smoke. Everything is not only dated but extremely warn and dirty. The sheets seemed to be the closest to someone decent but not the bed spread. It had the same icky feeling. If this place was $30 a night i would understand. But $150? I don't see it.

The pools were awesome! My 10 year old daughter and I swam until I felt like a wet sponge. The lodge was a little older with a short toilet but it was all good. We had a great time and will definitely recommend to others.

pools were very clean and very nice

Its all about the riverview, and yes we saw a large bear! Rooms are worn but ok

The pool was AMAZING, but the room was a mess. It was dirty, the phone didnt work and they wouldn't answer the phone by calling the actual number off a cell phone and the toilet didn't work. I definitely won't be staying again.

Rooms where dated, black mold was on the ceiling in the bathroom, and the bed where every uncomfortable. The tv was fuzzy and didn’t work good. Was very disappointed!

The rooms was decent but in a big need of updating. In the bathroom the ceiling tiles had black mold and other ceiling tiles sagging down allowing water to splash inside of them. Half shower head was missing.
