“Nice place and price :)”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed for a week. Our kids enjoyed the pool (in door) and the ducks (riverside).
Nice breakfast, clean and the staffing was very kind! Located in the perfect area, close to any place or attraction you want to go. We will stay again when come back here....

Thank you for being our guest! We look forward to your return.

My husband and I stayed in your suite last year for our honeymoon and decided to make it a tradition to stay at least one night every year during our anniversary! We love the jacuzzi in the room and the nice comfy beds. The free continental breakfast is awesome, biscuits and gravy plus all the normal stuff. The way the landscaping has been updated in the back going to the river is perfect.

This is one of the best maintained hotels I have ever stayed in. They spend boatloads of money to keep the 20 + year old property looking new. Great location, friendly knowledgeable staff, and a river walk to boot. A great stay in the Smokey Mountains.

Dear Lee S,

Thank you for the great review! We are exited to hear that you had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our new river walk. Our property has been built for twenty years but many guests ask if it is brand new because of the regular maintenance and renovations we have. Thank you for acknowledging this. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to serving you soon.

I found and booked this hotel based on the reviews here. While this room served as a stop for my family on our way home, it provided the hot shower (medium pressure) & comfortable beds(3 pillows each bed & soft mattress) for the night. Something about hotel showers are often odd in their height. This one did not have the midget shower and you could stand without a yoga position! :)
The pool was in a descent location to the rooms but the hot tub was small for such a large capacity hotel. Ice machine was broken on first floor but I walked to second floor to get some. My boys enjoyed the ducks and the stream behind the hotel more than the pool I do believe!

My 50/50 review of this hotel came the next morning when I went to take a shower and the lights cut off while I was in the shower! Pitch dark! I thought it was a power outage and tried to feel my way out after finding a towel. I discovered the tv light worked but lights in the sink area and bathroom would not turn on at all even after trying the outlet reset as a last resort. Both my boys were asleep at the time and no explanation could be determined. We proceeded to finish getting ready to leave despite half the lights working. We took cell phone lights in the bathroom so they could get ready. Calling the front desk wouldnt have been useful as we had to get on our way and checkout was in an hour. I can't imagine falling out of a tub at a hotel! Please fix the wiring or bulbs in Room #118.

I told the front desk what happened but I guess by her response, the experience just wasn't as vivid as it was for us.

Dear jewel_eng,

Thank you for being our guest recently! We are happy to learn that you found some great amenities at our hotel that you enjoyed. Our Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses are a relaxing way to spend your night and large hot showers are the best way to start your day. We do Apologize about the lights going out in your bathroom area and appreciate you bringing it to our attention. Breakers rarely trip at our hotel but can be easily fixed. I know you stated you were on your way out but next time please contact the front desk and we will be happy to have maintenance fix this issue immediately. We appreciate all of your feedback and hope to see you in the near future.
