Exceptional 10.0
Perfect location to enjoy all Gatlinburg has to offer. And great staff.

Very Good 8.0
It could be great
Nice location, beautiful view of the river. Room was huge and beds were great. Needs some updating, carpet torn, locks on doors were loose, sink broken, decor was mismatched and in need of paint.

Fair 4.0
Great location, old dated hotel.
The hotel is old. Worn and outdated. The staff were nice and accommodating. The rooms are in need of a complete overhaul. The location is absolutely great. Right in the middle of Gatlinburg and walking distance to everything.
STEPHANIE, us3 night family trip
Poor 2.0
This hotel room was disgusting. I booked it not expecting amenities but it was not only decrepit but absolutely filthy. The carpet looked to be from the 70's and the floor was littered with dog hair and wet. I booked a king bed but was given room with two queens, nbd. I woke three hours after settling in and was absolutely covered with bed bug bites. I checked at the headboard and killed several bed bugs. I went to the concierge to complain and they just gave me a new room. The parking attendant at the hotel is also going to try to sell you a time share when all you want is your parking pass so you can go to your room. Worst hotel stay of my life. Spent the entire next day in a laundromat trying to sanitize my luggage and laundry.
