    Historical Traveler Reviews Rocky Waters Motor Inn Gatlinburg

    Great deal! I will stay here again!


    Well, for the money, this is the best deal in Gatlinburg. It is very clean and in a convenient location where you can walk to everything. It does have balconies that overlook the river and the street. I love it because who wants to spend all of their money on a room when you hardly stay in it anyway. It is really a basic hotel room but it has a refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, you name it. And it is CLEAN.

    That is the main reason I love it. I have stayed at dumps in the middle of town for twice this price. Now it is not a huge, luxury hotel but who would expect one for this price. I say, if you want the best deal and a nice place to stay, then stay here. Excellent!

    Heaven in Gatlinburg


    The Rocky Waters Motor Inn (the one by the highway coming in) makes my visit complete everytime I go there. This is the ultimate experience for me for the last 10 years at least. It is close to everything, flowing water on the deck and the rooms are nice. I personally recommend this motel. Keep up this property.

    We stay here every year


    My Husband and I stay at Rocky Waters every year and we just love it. The staff at the motel are very nice and polite and do everything to make our stay as nice as it can be .Now we have family that comes with us and they love it too!You can't go wrong staying at Rocky Waters.Sincerely,The Walker's

    Good enough, I guess.


    We stayed 4 nights at Rocky Waters. The first thing anyone should know is that although all their rooms do overlook the river, the river runs along the main street in Gatlinburg. So you not only overlook the river, you overlook the traffic. As we were there on the "shoulder" between summer vacations and fall foliage, it wasn't as bad as it might have been, and the river does rather muffle the noise of the traffic. The room was clean, but rather overstuffed with furniture. It is an older motel trying to keep up with all the amenities offered in the newer ones. The outer hall from the parking lot was rather ratty, but on the upside, being partially inside and partially outside, it was more quiet than either a fully inside or outside. The worst thing about the room was the tub/toilet facility. It was so small that you banged your elbow on the tissue holder everytime you sat on the toilet. The price was reasonable, especially after I found a coupon for $10 off for each night of our stay ($40!) on their website. All in all, I would probably stay there again.

    Great Vacation


    We have stayed at the Inn several times. If you can't decide between a quiet retreat in the mountains or a stay in town this is the place. The rooms are clean, comfortable and right on the river. Even though you are in the middle of town it seems like you are all alone on a mountain stream. At night lite the fireplace and crack the window so you can hear the river. It is wonderful!!



    I can't say enough about this place. We stayed here a few years ago and were most impressed. The price was reasonable, the fireplace in our room made for luxurious ambiance, the view from our room (of the creek with the ducks) just added to the value. I don't normally write reviews like this, but I am now recommending this inn to a friend and came across this website. I give Rocky Waters the highest rating possible.p.s. many thanks to the staff for making our stay so enjoyable!

    Very clean


    very clean rooms I would stay there again.

    Loved the Pools


    It was a very nice place to stay. I loved the heated pool and the hot tub the best. The rooms where Very Nice. I loved leaving the window open to here and see the river below. I would recamend this place to my frineds.

    Love Rocky Waters Motor End


    I would reccomend this motel to anyone, the rooms were clean, no noise from other rooms. the staft was nice and willing to help you in any wayso you would enjoy your vacation. Again I would reccomend Rocky Warters Motor End to anyone. Bobby Gakes

    Love it

    ... floods and devastation. A lot has happened while we've been away but we have been proud of the way our state has rebounded and are moving forward.

    We're excited to be getting home tomorrow. We’ve been very fortunate through all our travels and have enjoyed sharing our adventures with our friends and family. We’re glad I wrote the blog because it’s already hard to remember some of the names of places we’ve been!

    ... Tuesday had turned into Wednesday. We were exhausted but you need to keep going the first day to get used to the time change. Germany is 6 hours ahead of US EST. Our hostess, Yvonne met us at the airport and took us to her home. It is a former villa and she lives on one floor of it. Very unique! We went to the city and Yvonne showed us the main square and historical area. The streets were being closed and set up for a major ...

    Oh my, what a shock! But let me begin at the beginning When we left Chattanooga, we high tailed it for the Cherohala Skyway. Weather report had suggested there would be bad weather in the afternoon so we tried to beat the weather. Unfortunately it didn't quite work out that way and we didn't get up onto the Skyway before the rain - lots of it came through. What a bummer. We couldn't see the scenery at all and riding ninths driving rain ...

    than it has been.

    We also met Doug, Heathers husband, who
    had been working shift work so we hadn't met him the day before. I
    made sausage rolls to add to dinner which everyone seemed to like and
    then after dinner we had smores around the fire pit. The kids went in
    after a bit but the adults stayed and chatted until after dark. So
    nice to be able to stop and connect with people, we all had a ...

    ... 24 hours though so we may have been wanting to buy
    milk at 3am and it may have been taking us a realllllly long time to
    decide if there were any other grocery items we needed to add to our
    shopping list?? As it turned out, we didn't get disturbed but Ben and
    I didn't sleep especially well that night, both waiting for a knock
    at the door.
