Positive Reviews

Outstanding staff service is guaranteed!

The employees were extremely considerate, friendly, and patient in dealing with all the issues raised by the guests. They were very professional in solving problems, and made the guests felt like royalty by giving them special treatment.

Lovely riverside location in Gatlinburg

The hotel’s riverside location offers a magnificent view and tranquil atmosphere, which the guests have fully enjoyed! Due to its close proximity to the Convention Center, Gatlinburg, restaurants, and shopping areas, most guests were thrilled to roam the whole area. Moreover, its nearness to famous tourists’ attractions was also the main reason why guests chose this hotel.

Well-decorated and well-equipped rooms

Aside from the generally clean rooms, most guests are pleased with the nice views of the river available from the windows. Rooms are also spacious and fully-equipped with mini-fridge, television, microwave and a fireplace for the guests’ convenience.

Negative Reviews

Firm beds make sleep uncomfortable

Most of the previous guests prefer softer ones for the reason that the beds or mattresses provided in the rooms are too firm for their liking. As a result, guests had a hard time getting some decent sleep.

Mediocre breakfast offering

Due to the limited breakfast, guests were quite disappointed! The breakfast area was also too small so guests had a hard time getting their own spot just to have breakfast. Therefore, guests are advised to check out nearby restaurants such as Bennett's Pit Bar-B-Que.

Various bathroom issues

Guests had issues with the lack of enough water pressure on the showers. The bathroom area was also not clean, shower head was too low, power outlets were closely situated to the sink which can be quite dangerous. Moreover, water was hardly warm so guests had a hard time taking a nice shower.
