“great motel in the smoky mountains”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

upon arriving at the motel I was greeted by 2 very friendly desk receptionist Dena and Christi,they were both very kind and very friendly. Christi was very quick to check us in and let us check in earlier than check in time. The breakfast was great the pool was clean and warm and our kids loved it. The rooms are exceptionally clean great job to the housekeepers. the only complaints I had was its hard to get in and out on to the parkway, and while using the business center I could overhear the 2 young men working the desk talking poorly about the female staff you have which I think as a father of 3 daughters was very disrespectful, any decent gentlemen would not say the things they were saying about the girls who work there we did have a great time and will be back the next time we are in the Smokies

Room Tip: The river side is nice and quiet

The hotel is wonderful. The rooms are a little small but with the closets you can put your stuff away and aren't walking all overt your luggage. We stayed on the riverside and out was quiet. The rooms were really clean and in good condition. The pool was crowded. The only thing I wish.was that they had a pool attendant to keep some of the children from jumping into the pool around younger children, and that they used less chlorine. My nose is spool burning from this evenings swim.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

This was our 3rd time staying at this hotel and still we enjoy it. If the weather is nice, there is plenty to keep the kids occupied just in the back parking lot with a creek, geese, ducks, and fish! My daughters enjoy the indoor pool! We did pay extra to have a room within the indoor pool. These few rooms within the indoor pool allow kids to stay out of the cold outdoors when going back and forth. But, be ready for late swimmers and noise. The hotel did NOT keep the pool towels stocked during our stay. And, our room did smell like cigarette smoke doused in air fresher. The smell was a little overwhelming. And, the room was tagged as a "non-smoking room". They allowed us to check in early when we arrived which was REALLY nice.

Room Tip: Pool rooms are more noisey but it keeps the kids from going outside in the weather when wet.

This simple style hotel will gain your satisfaction quickly from the prompt, friendly service of the reservation clerks to the spacious clean rooms at a great cost to families who have to use more than one room to spread out due to fire codes. The facility is perfectly fit with a nice arcade style game room, plenty of candy and pop machines indoor heated pool, baby pool, and hot tub along with an adequate laundry facility. They also offer two computers in the hotel lobby for those who don't have on with them and quality wi-fi internet that I had no problem connecting to anywhere throughout the hotel. The decor is a bit rustic and makes you feel right at home in the Smokeys! They also offer a nice complimentary breakfast with plenty for all. The only draw back on the breakfast is that it is for pork consumers and I wish they would consider using some cream gravy for us non-pork eaters. Other than that, A++++ - This was our second time to stay here and we will definitely be back next February for another stint!

Room Tip: We have stayed on the first floor of the North-West end both time and we absolutely love it. Close...

Room is clean, good location, I'm laying across the bed as I type. The water and ducks in the back are pretty, the pool is nice.
