Went down to Gatlinburg for a long weekend, curious how bad the fires damage things, evidently so did everyone else, found a room online at the Bearskin lodge. It was a nice room, clean and friendly. They had two fire pits out front at night to take the chill off as well as fire places in the room. It was...

My husband and I stayed her for a short anniversary trip. Beautiful motel!! The beds were super comfy! The only thing, we had a creekside room, the next time I'll get the city view. Loved the creek sound, but you are looking right into another motel. Definitely will return!

Have stayed at this Hotel several times. Located half block to the park. Easy walking to shops and restaurants. Rooms are roomy with large chairs to read or watch TV at night. Fireplace is great during the winter when we visited last time.

Great place, great location. This is the place we will stay when we visit the Gatlinburg. The location puts us around our other favorite dinning spots. You are within walking distance of everything you would want to do while you are there.

I really enjoyed my stay here! The mattress was a memory foam mattress and was a dream. It was very comfortable. The suite had a fireplace and when you turned it on the room did not smell; you never knew it was there. The balcony was extraordinarily clean; there were no insects or spiders to be seen anywhere even though...

We had a great stay at Bearskin Lodge! Clean. Comfortable. Friendly. A perfect stay except that we paid for an "upgraded view"... the river view... yes there is a river... but all you see is the hotel that is directly across from your room. Save the $10/night! We did speak to the front desk the day after we got there...

My husband and I often do an over night getaway in Gatlinburg. On a whim we decided to try the Bearskin Lodge. We will be returning regularly. Upon arriving the staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a pool and lazy river but I prefer a hot tub. I was a little disappointed to find out their wasn't a...

My husband and I love Bearskin Lodge! We have stayed several times and have never been disappointed. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable, and the accommodations are always clean and nice. The hotel is also very convenient for walking to area shops and restaurants. We will certainly stay here again.
