One of the best motel stays we've had! We stayed about a week. Wonderful staff, quiet, peaceful surroundings and lots of amenities. A full breakfast served each morning, a business center with computers, an outdoor porch to eat on at any time, a walk to the river with ducks and it's in walking distance to several shops. We ate at...

Courteous and welcoming staff. Great breakfast. Clean and pleasant rooms. Close to everything. Loved staying in a rom by the river--so worth the extra cost. I doubt that you would find a nicer hotel in the area.

Nice clean modern hotel. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is in easy walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The indoor and outdoor pools are clean and heated to a comfortable temperature. Our room was next to the pools, the side entrance, and the vending machines, but there was no noise. Highly recommend over the more expensive hotels...

Very clean rooms. Very friendly hotel staff. Love the divided room section. Great balcony over looking river. Pillows were not very comfy. So bring extra pillows. Bed was comfy. Very quiet at night. I would definitely stay there again!

Not quite how I imagined. This hotel is actually on the main road through Pigeon Forge. That said it is quiet and really well located. Staff really efficient and friendly. Check in was simple and the rooms large, comfortable and well maintained. We tried both the indoor and outdoor pools both were lovely and a welcome escape from the heat....

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Staff was excellent! When we arrived early for our visit, they allowed us to check in; and when we inquired as to where our room was, we were told it was first floor. We then asked if we could have a second or third floor room, on the river side, and were graciously...

Another wonderful trip to this hotel. It is a very quiet place with a lot of upgrades. They seem to keep this place very up to date and everything looking fresh. I have stayed here multiple times and will stay again. This place is next to the Christmas Shops which is wonderful

Good housekeeping and clean room. Indoor pool renovation was completed before we arrived. Full breakfast, not that continental carb fest some places offer. Michelle was great at check-in as we arrived later than expected due to traffic delay. Nice location in heart of Pigeon Forge. Enjoyed sitting outside in early Sept by Little Pigeon River for our breakfast. Outside eating...

Everything fine in our room. They were doing renovations. Everyone that worked there were very helpful and pleasant. Thought that rooms were a little pricey. Had nice breakfast. Probably would stay there again, but would not pay for a balcony room.
