I found this little hotel to be quite nice. It was in a great location, the service was great, the extra little add-ons like the buffet breakfast being included, WI-FI included, parking included, afternoon tea and coffee and popcorn all included as nice little touches. I would be hard pressed to find something wrong with my stay. The pool and hot tub were clean and well kept. We bought Dollywood tickets at the front desk and they were very convenient. They had a lot of bus groups of mostly senior citizens while we were there but we still found seating every morning for breakfast.
Is this a contemporary modern looking hotel? No. But I found it to be quaint and thoroughly enjoyed looking at the river from a rocking chair.
One thing I would suggest would be safes in the room. I was surprised not to find one.
Also the fireplace made some noise as it heated up and cooled down.But nothing major at all.
Housekeeping did a great job though and the room was clean each day after getting back.

This hotel was clean, quiet and perfectly located for my business trip. The staff was friendly and helpful and I felt very comfortable staying there alone. Breakfast was very nice and the fresh popcorn in the evenings was a nice surprise.
