Great location near everything in the downtown area. The staff was awesome and the rooms were very spacious and clean. We will stay here again when in Gatlinburg

A delightful and comfortable hotel at the edge of Great Smokey Mountain National Park. The staff are courteous and efficient. Rooms were clean and well equipped. Breakfasts were surprisingly good. Excellent location. Better than expected.

Needs an adjustable handle or something to facilitate getting out of hot tub

Great weekend close to everything Very relaxing Staff was great bent over backwards to accommodate

The hotel was so nice and clean. When we first went into the hotel we were pleasantly greeted and everything was ready to go. All the staff were extremely nice and friendly.

Our stay was short but we would stay here again. Our only problem was with the payment due to booking through orbitz. This hotel was booked and paid on Orbitz by a family member as a gift to us, but when we got there we were told they do not accept payment from third parties. We had to pay for the room when we got there, and they would not take the card information that it was originally booked on for payment either. That was not written out anywhere, so it was quite an inconvenience; however, the lodge itself was great. You are right beside the Ober ski gondola lift with a beautiful view of the river.

This hotel was the nicest one we have found yet that was within walking distance of all the great shops and restaurants of downtown Gatlinburg. We loved the Fireplace and river view room! The bed was really comfortable and the wood floors were a nice change from the usual carpeted floors most hotel rooms have. The staff was very nice and helpful. The only thing that was a bit of a disappointment was the free breakfast. It was the Cardiac Killer of breakfasts; bacon, pancakes, biscuits and gravy - no eggs - and watery coffee. We wound up going elsewhere and paying for a better breakfast; a big disappointment since our room rate was a premium high rate for the season which was more justifiable when breakfast was included. All in all, we will definitely consider staying here again, but at a lower rate.

The room was great and very spacious. It also had a great large shower, but the small balcony just above the river was amazing to listen to each morning. Only downside was the AC. It struggled to keep the room cold and lower the humidity. I would recommend this place to family and friends.

Easy check-in. Clean, spacious room. Close to restaurants and activities. Quiet at night. Good continental breakfast each morning.

love the river view rooms and walking distance from the main road. We had a great time.

The room was updated and in a great location. Near downtown attractions and by the creek. Parking was easy and the Gatlinburg walking trail to the Sugarland Visitor Center was nearby. We will likely stay here again.

Very nice room with balcony, fireplace, and jacuzzi tub. Has decent tv, decent bed, and good lighting. However, the water temperatures in the shower and bath fluctuate from warm to scalding hot. Not comfortable showers or baths. The gap underneath the adjoining doors to the other room needs addressed. You can literally see people walking in the other room. And they could use a few more parking spaces especially on busy weekends.
