Guests can enjoy two outdoor pools, one indoor pool, and a hot tub and sauna complex located inside. There are meeting spaces available for corporate events, weddings, and other special occasions.

Newest first
7.7 Good
Pros:Very affordable, close to the shopping strip & attractions but a little more of a walk than I expected especially with small kids! I think our kids liked the pool more than they liked the actual vacation itself! I was happy to stay there though!
Cons:The pool wasn't very easy to access at all, our room we were given at check in had not been cleaned up from a prior maintenance job but the front desk took care of us right away and put us in another room. We ended up being by the creek which was really nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Ask for the creek side rooms with balconys! Hearing the creek from your room was great. Their indoor pool is what sells this place for me and my family. It's a fun pool, with waterfall and hot tub. You can't beat the value for the location and amenities.
Cons:It's not very fancy or new, but if you're not a fancy person then you'll love it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Rate and location
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:There were roaches in room. Staff was nice but we won't stay there again.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:After reading some reviews after booking our stay I was worried... we arrived & the staff was very friendly, rooms were clean, a/c worked great, ice machines worked. I found no merit to some concerns addressed in others reviews. Yes this is a older motel but not rundown & I would stay again. We were courtside (across the street) & it was very peaceful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The pools
Cons:Parking needs some work
7.7 Good
Pros:The cleaning staff was very nice and the riverfront was a plus.
Cons:There were ants in our room. The minifridge became unplugged sometime when we were asleep the first night and ruined our food in the fridge. When you entered the room the smell was unpleasant and somewhat over powering, took a while to adjust to it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:it reminded me of Gatlinburg when I was growing up. Simple, clean motel. Off the parkway so it was nice and quiet, but still just a short walk to the main drag. AMAZING pool!!! Unbeatable price, and super friendly staff. We will be back!
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:The location and the indoor pool were great.
Cons:Our room was very small and smelled like mildew/mold. The hotel is very outdated and not very clean. The Wifi did not work most of the time and the shower water kept going from scalding hot to cold without touching anything. We also were put in a "pet friendly" room, which I would NEVER stay in again. If I had known that part of the hotel was "pet friendly" I would have never booked there. We will never stay at this hotel again.
7.1 Good
Pros:Great staff, very friendly. The staff were the highlight of this experience. The rooms were average with the standard motel options. Location was close enough that you could walk to the main attractions. For the price it was worth it.
Cons:The Wi-Fi only worked at the main building and a bit beyond. Did not see any breakfast options available but a fantastic pancake house was nearby. Bathrooms needed updated.
