We checked in at about midnight. Got a non smoking room that was clearly smoked in....excessively! When we asked about it they said that we asked for a smoking room when we made our reservation. ....wrong! They didn't care at all. Could not sleep because if the smell. Never again! Pay more....stay somewhere else. Not worth the savings.

As some of the other reviews state, the hotel isn't new, the beds are squeaky and the linens may have some dubious stains. However, the room was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel was well-placed to serve as a base for an unplanned, quick getaway to Dollywood and Pigeon Forge.

Room had not been cleaned well in a long time. Lots of mildew and dust everywhere as well as an overwhelming stench of smoke in the room. Carpet in front of the door was soaked from something and the A/C did not work well in the room even though the temp outside was mild. Of course when I asked for... More

I normally don't do reviews, however, I am here to warn you that this hotel is not great! I immediately became sick to my stomach because of the strong over whelming odor of orange air freshener. The bathroom grout on the floor and in corners of tub was black due to mildew. There was a dead roach in the bathroom.... More

I would NOT recommend ANYONE to even consider staying here. We booked through Expedia and was supposed to get an adjoining room, and when we got to the hotel.. They said they did not have adjoining rooms available, so we settled for side by side room. When we got to the room( around the corner in what looked like a... More

First I want to thank you for taking the time to let us know about the problems you had at our property. I do apologize that things did not go well for you. Unfortunately when rooms are reserved thru a third party things like request for adjoining rooms are not always relayed to the hotel. That was the case with... More
