After reading some reviews I was extremely nervous about staying here. However I can say this is a great budget friendly older motel, with clean rooms and friendly staff. We stayed in a riverside room on the second floor (room 120). It had been recently...More
I only stay at Choice Hotels. The few experiences with the Eco Lodge brand have not been good. However, I did read the favorable views so I decided to take a chance. The place was terrific. Very pleasant arrival from Nichol. The room was great:...More

We had a 1st floor room and it was dated but served the purpose. The electric fireplace was a nice touch even if it was just for looks. Staying here, we walked to most places in Gatlingburg. As noted in other reviews, yes the parking...More
We typically only stay in Choice hotels. We tend to stay away from econolodge and Rodeway inns, as we have had a few horrible experiences im Tampa, Jacksonville and Savannah. This one was good though. No complaints.
Stayed in two King rooms with balconies on River. Clean rooms in older hotel that appears to still be updating rooms. Beds were comfy and all room ameneties worked. Bathrooms are dated and tubs need to be caulked or they are going to develop water...More

I don't know if they are or they aren't but what I can tell you is I wouldn't take my pet even if they were. When I was checking in a bear walked by the window and I did a double take. I said a bear just walked by and they said they come by all the time. I went outside and the bear was eating from a trash can. We were on the second floor and when we finished unpacking and came out of our room the bear was eating from a trash can on the second floor. They have a ramp and the bear went right up the ramp to the second floor. Now don't get me wrong we knew about the bear when we checked in so we didn't have any problems. I just don't know how the bear would react to another animal close by.
