This was a great little find that is about as close as possible to get to Silver Dollar City. It's a bit of an older hotel, but has been very well maintained with updates that make it still comfortable and inviting. It was also quite clean and with comfortable and fresh bedding, towels, etc. The front desk and breakfast room staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. A well-appointed hot breakfast buffet is included in the reasonable price for your room. There really was a broad selection of food choices, and everything was kept full even when the (large) room was filled with people one morning.
The two nights we stayed, the temperatures were in single digits. Each room has a window unit a/c-heater. Ours struggled to keep up the first night. Not freezing, but cooler than desired. We mentioned it to the front desk in the morning as we were leaving for Silver Dollar City. They said that those older units can have a hard time with this cold, and might just have to move us to a different room, but they would look at it. Either they fixed it, or the unit finally caught up, because when we returned that evening the room had warmed up to a normal, comfortable temperature and stayed there all night.
They offer shuttles to and from Silver Dollar City (which is less than a mile walk to the front gate if the weather is nice) on a regular schedule. You are provided the schedule, which is about every hour, except that the last two in the Christmas season are 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm. It only takes three minutes to get there or back. I think some other reviews might have complained about the shuttle; but really, just be there five minutes early and realize they aren't going to sit around on the chance that someone decides to come late. less
