Nice quiet night with the sound of the river below. We will be back when we have more time to enjoy the area

Pleasant Weekend Stay
We stayed for 2 nights at the Rocky Waters. The location was convenient to downtown Gatlinburg - just a short walk to the center of town. Our room met our expectations.. Bedding was good. Room was clean-we had a balcony overlooking the river. Great ambience having the sliding glass door open, hearing the water rush by our room. Designated covered parking spot for our vehicle. Overall, our stay was enjoyable.

Rocky Waters is not suitable to stay in. It smelled horrible and felt very unclean. The pictures on their site are very deceiving as well. We will never stay there again

Third trip to Rocky Waters
It’s a beautiful setting and perfect place to relax on the outdoor balcony. I’ve been three times and will continue to go back. This wasn’t the best stay as maid service didn’t make my bed, do towels or clean the bathroom. Only reason I knew someone was by was because they left a do not disturb sign on the inside door handle when there wasn’t one previously. But that’s somewhat minor in the grand scheme of things as far as the reason I was there. I wanted to sit on the balcony and relax, and this is a perfect place for that.

Mostly clean room except for the chair, the private balcony was amazing and the coffee was good & staff was nice.
