ocated in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, Rocky Waters Motor Inn is part of the fabric of Gatlinburg, TN. The hotel is the backdrop to many stories that continue to be told today. Over the years as the town expanded, so did the inn. But with every expansion, the inn kept its eye on the prize – the oasis the property provides with the echoes of the river reverberating through the property. Each private guest room features a porch sitting atop the running waters of Cliff Branch Creek smack dab in the center of the beloved Tennessee Mountain Town.

Once again, the Rocky Waters Motor Inn is undergoing a transformation. This time, better than ever. The property is set to be the pinnacle of the Appalachian Cultural Renaissance that is emerging.
