Older place to stay but it's not always about 5 or 6 star that can make a stay worth while. A lot of repairs and upgrades are being done to Rocky Waters inn. The location was perfect for us. You do have to walk to get downtown but then you get to see all the shops that are available in...

My wife and I stayed here for a quick anniversary trip on 4-29-17. Just like all hotels, the weekend rates are inflated, so $135 with tax was expected. A big plus is the balconies. It was nice to be able to sit out and drink coffee in the morning. However, if you expect to eat breakfast here, you have to...

Rocky Waters Motor Inn used to always be booked full back in the Gatlinburg of the 1980s. Now with so many people flocking to luxury, multi-story hotels,a motor inn probably struggles to keep up. Since my group prefers Mom and Pop places, this hotel moves into my top spot as I dislike chain hotels. Rooms are right off the road...

This hotel is located by stoplight #2, so is not by the Aquarium and other shopping areas. I went in May rather than busy October and there were less people and traffic, which I liked better. It was $90 a night for a basic clean room. I could walk to Atrium for breakfast and Fannie Adams Theatre for a funny...

Booked a room with a King size bed, Double Jacuzzi tub and a fire place. The room was undergoing some reno and had new carpeting. Nice comfy bed and spacious room. While sitting out on the balcony you can hear and see the rushing water from the river below. We also got to see a wild bear. LOL The staff...

Decent place to stay but was a lil pricey for the lack of amenities. The best part was the view of the creek and it was nice and peaceful. The beds were ok as far as being comfortable but not great. Beautiful view of water!

This place is quaint, the staff are very courteous and helpful. Parking is great and close to your room. Our room was right on the river and it was really nice to listen to and look at the short time we were in our room. There is a trolley stop right across the street and plenty of shopping and restaurants...

Went here for two nights. Room was great. Clean and very affordable on booking.com. great river view and private. Wish the breakfast were closer, but was no problem. I would return here it was betty way to walk to the aquarium and the strip.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The view off the balcony was worth everything. Balcony actually hangs over the river. Very lovely, private, and peaceful. Room was a little outdated, but pretty clean and room to move. We arrived very late (12am-1am) and we're still able to get in without a problem. The front desk guy didn't provide me with...
