Staff was very friendly, and helpful. Rooms were nice and clean. Is a older motel, but kept up well. Location is nice, no need to look for parking, you can walk to most of Gatlinburg. Place was completely occupied while we were there.

Love this hotel. Quiet, clean, friendly staff, comfortable beds. Nice updated rooms. Easy access to downtown private balconies. Hear the river from that balcony. Not alot of vehicle traffic by the rooms at night keeping you awake. Just a great place to stay and affordable. We stay here every trip can't wait to come back.

Unbeatable location, short walk to everywhere. Rooms are nice and clean. Friendly staff. Areas of the exterior could use some work: stairs and elevator lobby. Second time staying here and will likely stay again.
