Wow - Gatlinburg is a crazy busy place! This hotel is not on the main drag which we thought was a very good thing! Evidently it's recently been updated so everything is sparkling and clean. We liked the hardness of the new mattresses though obviously not everyone does. The shower stall is the best - all tiled with no tub...

My wife and I stayed here for the first night of our anniversary vacation (Made the mistake of not booking two nights), and it was absolutely perfect. We had two queens due to late booking and kings being all booked, but worked out better because we had extra room. The room had a fireplace and whirlpool bedside, both of which...

We stayed 3 nights here and it was wonderful. The room is very spacious, beds were comfy, bathroom was nice and clean and I loved the shower. The pool was small but very clean. The mountain stream was beautiful and so relaxing. The staff was nice and we loved the cookies and lemonade every afternoon. The breakfast was good too....

We stay here every time we come to Gatlinburg and just booked again for later this month! The rooms are updated and spacious. It's always clean. Check in has always been a breeze. We feel very safe here! It's walking distance to everything! It's located in the ski resort side of Gatlinburg.

I would have given this a 5 star except, the beds are horrible. Most people DO NOT like hard beds. I'm sure some do. I have stayed there 2 times and every night wake up hurting and tossing and turning. My husband says the same thing. We are all stiff and sore the next day from the hard beds. Please...

Before the remodel that gave this hotel its log cabin exterior, it was a Fairfield Inn. Even before the remodel I felt like this was THE place to stay in Gatlinburg for a reasonable price and a great room. Rooms with hot tubs, fireplaces, and some of the best views off the balconies ... all for the price of a...

We'd stayed previously at the Bearskin Lodge on the River in Gatlinburg. Old Creek Lodge must have the same owners-the rustic décor is nearly identical, as are the complimentary afternoon lemonade and homemade cookies in the lobby. We enjoyed our 2 night stay, and were able to walk to several nearby locations that we like to visit. We are seniors,...

Very nice hotel beside the stream. Clean and spacious room. Easy walk to all the shops of Gatlinburg and room 407 has the amazing sound of the water which we left the door open to sleep by. Will be back.
