Reviews & Testimonials

Perfect location, clean, simple

We booked this small hotel for one night. It was very clean and the location can’t be beat. We heard live music from the Tavern next door which we enjoyed. The WiFi was here and there and we had no cell service without it. We paid $99 total for one night. We would stay here again.

A bit of Heaven on earth!!!!!!!!

Thank You to Dale and Della, the owners at Creekside Court! We visited Hot Springs NC and stayed there. The rooms were clean, fully stocked. The hospitality of the owners was priceless. The restaurant that they also own in front has great food, live music, and karaoke. Everything is in walking distance, the Creekside court has a lovely patio with a firepit for guests to use. This was the perfect trip and place to stay for our 8 yr anniversary. This is our go to place to stay ……we will be returning often!

Treetop Cabin Rental

The shower pressure is perfect and the bed is super comfy. The setting is very peaceful and private for a downtown location. Outside deck needs some work but the inside is modern and updated nicely. Deck can be slippery when wet, so heads up on that! Enjoy your stay and I would return in a heartbeat.

Sweet spot downtown!

Wonderful Last Minute Get Away

This was our first time visiting Hot Springs but it will not be our last. Everyone was very friendly, the hot springs were wonderful and our room at Creekside Court was perfect! The food was delicious in the restaurant. The rooms were newly remodeled , very clean, and the owners couldn’t have been friendlier. We have already made plans to return next month and we’re bringing friends with us so they can experience this great little small town.

Getaway

Our cottage type room was perfect for our visit to Hot Springs. It was simple and clean. Full size coffee pot was a plus. Nice firm mattress, rain head type shower head and fluffy white towels. It was very relaxing and a nice view. The best part about Alpine Court Motel was that you could walk to everything…the restaurants, convenience store, the Resort Spa (a must do), hiking trails, Hot Springs Rafting Co. which we used for our Funyak float. The reservation by phone was very easy with Frank who was very accommodating. I plan to return next year if not sooner. This place was great! No fitness or pool needed in this area.
