This hotel is good. It is clean, the parking lot is well lit, the beds are comfortable, and the service is good. My only complaint is about the ice bucket. The staff did not empty the ice bucket during their cleaning rounds.

We were very satisfied with our room at this hotel. We were on our way home from Gatlinberg and very tired and ready for a bed. We first tried the hotel next door and they were having an audit so we would have to wait an hour... Good thing because Best Western was so nice. The beds seemed brand new.... More

This hotel was clean, freshly redone, and nice! BUT, I always check the rate on Expedia and then call the hotel to see if they can match it! They readily agreed. Upon checkout, was given a rate $14 higher, and said there was no way anyone agreed to the expedia rate. Also, housekeeping knocked/walked in several times waking us up!... More
