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?!...

Great price. Great jacuzzi room. Loved it. Staff friendly. On the water and close to everything. So staying there again 😍😍. Even got to see a wild river otter sitting on our deck. Peaceful, clean, and great county feel. Very well managed!!!

We will definitely be staying here again. Yes, it's older, but clean. Beds are great. They rearranged our rooms so my daughter and granddaughter would be next to my husband and me. We forgot to ask when we booked, but they didn't have a problem working it out for us. Having the balcony is great and the water is so...

Overall nice Inn with a great view. Clean, comfortable beds, nice balcony view. If you want a 5-star motel this isn't where you want to be. Older but great for me :) Breakfast at a different place is troublesome and the internet is not good. I would go again; great price and clean!

We had a hard time getting a hold of the front desk, a phone issue we were told. Then the following day while traveling there, we got a hold of them and were told the computer was down and they'd call us back. They never did, though. We just wanted to confirm a main floor room accommodation request. Which we...
