We booked through booking and for a decent rate on the room rate. The staff was friendly and check in was fast. The hotel is older but very clean. We travel with our two year old and the staff acknowledged him and he was very excited. We will be back next year hopefully this time it will be winter time.

This is our favorite place to stay in Pigeon Forge (we have been here many times during the past 14 years). I absolutely love to walk out back and feed the ducks and geese along the river (very relaxing).

This is my fifth time staying here. On my first visit a few years ago, I was hesitant. Only because I generally stay at another hotel. But this was one of the only places with just a few rooms available. Not what I expected by any means. This is truly a nice place to stay. The rooms are always clean...

Very nice and up to date hotel. We liked to be able to go out our door and sit by the river and feed the ducks. The breakfast was supplied with lots of good food. The bathroom was very small but clean. The pool was nice but we could not get in to swim because it was always filled with...

We stayed here on a whim for one night. The hotel is nice and clean. Our room had a great view overlooking the river. We also had a small kitchenette, including a small fridge and microwave. It is convenient to everything - right on the main strip. Breakfast was decent, offering grits, scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, cereals...

Found this location last minute. Not sure if I was doing something wrong but it never came up under any Kayak/Tripadvisor/Orbitz/etc. searches, I booked it directly through their website.

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay there. We didn't stay near the pool because it's loud but the rest of the hotel is quiet. Breakfast was good except for the pancakes which were rubbery. The park setting out back was wonderful. You could feed the ducks, geese and pigeons!

The hotel itself is very nice except our bathroom door looked like someone tried to break into it as the knob was loose and wobbly and there were dents in the door. The grounds were very nice and the walkway along the river was wonderful. I would stay there again.
