A wonderful vacation in the Smokies is made up of a balance of enjoying all of the exciting attractions, dining at the best spots in town, shopping, exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and just simply taking some time to kick back and relax. Staying with us at the Old Creek Lodge in downtown Gatlinburg is the perfect way to do just that and enjoy a high-quality lodging experience. Below are a few reasons for why the location of our hotel will help to make your next visit to Gatlinburg your best trip yet!
Shop, Dine and Play
Our downtown Gatlinburg hotel is located along the river on River Road and is just steps away from the best shops, top-rated restaurants, most exciting attractions and America’s most loved national park. Staying with us will allow you to shop, dine and play with minimal time in your vehicle or on the Gatlinburg Trolley. You can walk across the street and visit Ober Gatlinburg by just hopping on the Aerial Tramway, take a stroll down the road and explore Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies or easily visit the Gatlinburg SkyPark and SkyBridge during the day, then head back up later on for a Smokies sunset. The Peddler Steakhouse is nearby as well as The Melting Pot and other excellent dining experiences. Do you love Sugarlands Distillery and Ole Smoky Moonshine? You can enjoy a trip for some shine without ever having to drive. If a morning walk in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park sounds perfect then you’ll love walking from your room straight to the Gatlinburg Trail for some time along the river. If you love doing it all when you’re in the Smokies, then you’ll love staying with us!
A River Runs By It
Our downtown Gatlinburg hotel is located right along the river and is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life or a hectic world. Every guest room has a private balcony that provides a tranquil retreat overlooking the river. Time on your balcony is great for wildlife watching, having an early morning cup of coffee, reading, or enjoying a glass of wine from Sugarlands Cellar that’s a short walk from our hotel. If you’re visiting during the cooler months and find yourself getting a little chilly on the balcony, you can just step inside and enjoy a warm and toasty fireplace that is also available in every room throughout the hotel.
Less Hassles, More Fun
Staying with us during your time in the Smokies allows you to have more fun and deal with less hassles thanks to our convenient location. You’ll receive free parking during your stay and therefore will not only save money but you will also not have to worry about finding parking in downtown Gatlinburg. Being able to park and walk or ride the Gatlinburg Trolley is always helpful but it can really make a difference during our busy seasons and around holidays. Due to our hotel being located on the end of River Road near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park you can also slip into the park for a scenic drive or for a day of hiking without having to deal with traffic. There’s no reason to take time away from having fun during your trip because you’re driving circles to find parking or stuck in traffic on the way to your next adventure.
