The facility was very clean. My kids loved the indoor pool and feeding the geese. Breakfast was also a plus. There was a little something for everyone. Location was convenient to all the local attractions. My family and I will definitely be back.

The indoor pool was warm and amazing because it was so cold outside. The hot tub was lit as well, my boyfriend and I had a blast there. Breakfast was good af and there’s pigeons and geese outside next to the river, you can feed them and it’s really cool if you like birds but there’s a lot and it happens fast so kids might get scared easy but otherwise I’ve never seen anything like it! 10/10 from us

The cleanest and friendliest hotel we have ever stayed in! We were very impressed and will most definitely return!

Clean, Good Breakfast, love the creek behind the hotel

The staff were very helpful and efficient. The breakfast was amazing. Rooms were clean and smelled good.

Close to many attractions, & even thought we had a room facing the highway, it was a quiet room. Also enjoyed the included breakfast.

Nice, small rooms. Beautiful landscaping and fine location. The Little Pigeon River flows behind the motel and is so pretty. However, there are dozens and dozens of Canada geese and pigeons along the river in so many numbers that the grass is gone and the gosslins (wild birds) pester you for corn. They are being baited in by the owner, who has installed corn vending machines along the river. Wild animals should not be baited in for the amusement of people. Get rid of the vending and the birds will soon disperse!

convenience . Free breakfast (alittle more variety we were there 5 nights). Very noisy upper neighbor. Step into shower very big.

The front check in was easy and pleasant. They gave us a map since it's a large property. Lots of people at the pool. Quiet, easy to get around.

The staff were great at check in. The room was exactly what I expected.

Clean and comfortable - what more could you ask for! Love the ducks!!!

Very nice hotel. Breakfast was great with a lot of variety. Great location. Big spacious rooms with a good bathroom. Equipped with a good size mini fridge and microwave. Hotel staff was very professional and efficient.

We had a wonderful stay at this location. The room was spacious and comfortable for our after Thanksgiving shopping trip.

Hotel was close to many Restaurants and shopping. Was nice to be able to walk to The Christmas Place and not battle with finding a parking spot there. Would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed at many hotels in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg over several years. This hotel is hard to beat for the location, price, condition, and a great free breakfast.

Everything was excellent except the shower plunger didn't work all the way (we only got about 1/3 the volume from the shower head.) And some of the electrical plugs need replaced as they are loose fitting.The Breakfast was VERY GOOD every day
