It's not the best motel I've ever stayed in, but it's not the worst either. This was our first stay, and we ended up here largely because it was one of three places in town that still had rooms for less than $200 a night. I booked two nights via Priceline, and then called the hotel and reserved a third...

The only redeeming qualities for this property are the location and the view from the balcony. When we were asked to pay for all three nights in advance without the possibility of a refund, that should have been a sign. I am perfectly fine with older motels/hotels as long as they are clean. That was not the case with this...

The location was good. The view of the river was good. The room was out of date. The parking was OK. The breakfast required walking a long distance to the Days Inn. It was a very ordinary breakfast and nothing to brag about.

I've stayed in many hotels, some very nice and some very cheap. This place is a hole in the wall; absolutely one of the worst places I've ever stayed in my 30+ years of travel and hotel stays. The only redeeming quality is the easy walk into town. However, the room was beyond shabby, in desperate need of updating. Even...

Was a nice place to stay for the price. The personal balcony overlooks the creek coming down the mountain. Wasn't modern but very comfortable and clean. Will definitely stay again. As well as recommend.

This hotel had a wonderful view and the prices were not bad at all make sure you ask for a discount as they offer discounts for seniors and AAA members. Their rooms are clean that could use an update and the free breakfast on their website requires you to walk across the street to their sister hotel at the Days...

Beds are some of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Good location. A short walk to town. Really enjoyed the private balcony right on the river. Staff is very friendly and helpful if you need anything. This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here and have no complaints. Would recommend this place to anybody.

My girlfriend and I stayed here while in town for my father's funeral. The room was filthy . Cigarette burns in the bed. The toilet seat was flaking and stuck to you as you got up. The carpet had a thick layer of dirt all around the edge. The carpet was heavily stained. The mattress on the bed was so...

This is our second stay here. We usually stay at modern hotels on the pricey size but we always make an exception for this place! Your balance sits over a river that has such a soothing sound. You get a large jet tub and its really close to all of the Gatlinburg action. They do need to improve their mattresses...

My boyfriend and I bought a Groupon for this property back in March. We really enjoyed our stay. Management was nice and attentive. We loved how private our balcony was. You're obviously not getting a 5 start hotel, but for the price, it was great. Decor was very 80's and could use an update, but who cares for the rate?!...
