Our reservation was wrong when we arrived, however. We asked for two queen beds and received a King with a sofa sleeper. It took a while to get some extra padding to make the sleeper sofa comfortable, but it worked out fine in the end. Chris made up for it by giving us a free breakfast, which was quite delicious.
The pool is small but clean and a nice temperature. The hot tub/whirlpool is great for adults (hot!) but I would not suggest it for children under the age of 13.
There is free starbucks coffee (not foofoo) all day and the front desk people are very nice and helpful. The housekeeping department is fantastic. We never had to wait long if we needed something brought to our room, and they cleaned the rooms better than many hotels at which I have stayed.
If you have kids, visiting Bristol Caverns and Sycamore Shoals Historic Park are a must. However, I must admit, getiing directions to the caverns by a local is suggested as I had a bit of a stuggle finding it.
Overall it it was a good stay and we will be going back.
