View of Observation, Communication and Alerts of Fire Tower Downtown Gatlinburg. Other 3 taken when driving through The Great Smokey Mtns that is all around. Pool sure looked good but it wasn't open yet (waiting for city inspection 1st). It was May! We stayed in 1 of the hotel's mini apartments. It had a dining table and chairs, a large room. Small kitchen with sink, counter with microwave and refrigerator below. Great for our leftovers! We had a balcony overlooking the river and a view of then downtown area. The river muted other sounds, fantastic. Nice facility with a bistro open early for complimentary continental breakfast, good variety of choices and good service. Bar is open at breakfast and runs till 11-12 pm Lunch and dinner are both served. We had a very good lunch and ate the leftovers for dinner! As good reheated. There is an outside dining area right on the river! They had live music Friday and Saturday night. We spent a week visiting family and wandering around town and through the mountains. Recovery from the last gigantic fire is ongoing, it was good to see so much green coming along.

Great place for vacation. Perfect location. Cleaning is very good, Maria did an excellent job in our room. Some of the staff members are for more than 15 years, it is a really plus! We are going to back for sure!

This hotel on their sign calls themselves a Boutique Hotel. Not really. The hotel is a little rough around the edges but the room had been updated & was clean. Balcony was great. The elevator area needs work. The Grab & Go breakfast was lacking. The staff was very friendly & helpful. We had a problem with our Keurig but it was quickly fixed. The staff also gave us some excellent restaurant suggestions.

Small motel with friendly staff. Rooms were very clean and recently renovated. Loved the fireplace. Beds were very comfortable. Room was a little small and breakfast was disappointing, just basic bagels, yogurt and a microwave omlette. Located across from a beautiful little river, but you have no view from your room.
