The place looked ok at first, but once we went to climb into bed we discovered one of our mattresses was soaked with URINE! I'm assuming it was the previous guests, probably from a child, or maybe even some one who had too much to drink. Not necessarily the hotels fault. I just wished the cleaning lady hadn't just ignored... More

One star because I can't give a zero. Broken lamps.. Stained toilets.. Dead bugs on floor.. Pool broken....refrigerator leaks.. Stained linens.. Too much to list... Don't waste your money. There are cigarette butts are overflowing in the planters.. Parking is terrible.. Bedsprings are broken... The A/C does its job and gets the room nice and cold!

Phone in room didn't work. Staff failed to provide replacement. No cell signal or Wi-fi signal in room. We spent a significant amount of time in the parking lot trying to use phone. Claims of free HBO are not true. Room ok. Continental breakfast, but little room for guests to sit and eat. Air conditioning worked great. That's about the... More

Very clean. Air conditioning works fine. Great for location, you can get a bus to Dollywood for $1 each. The staff are very friendly and can give you recommendations for restaurants. The pool is small so is full of little ones. The wifi is patchy and breakfast wasn't up to much but for what we paid we can't complain. I'd... More

We got a Groupon for Island Lodge and it was great from start to finish! The staff was very helpful, the room was clean, beds were comfy, jacuzzi and bathroom was clean, and there was decent space! We enjoyed our stay so much the staff was helpful in getting us the next best price because there were no more Groupon... More

Booked this place on a Groupon. Looked great in the photos. What we got was totally different. Bugs in the room, A/C didn't work, bathroom smelled like it was mopped with a dirty mop, burn holes in the sheets, parking lot and walkways were full of garbage and cigarette butts. Continental breakfast was a joke. The line went out the... More

Checked in about midnight. Went to room to find that our door was open and the bed was messed up. Went to tell office and no one was there. Passed by what I'm pretty sure is a call girl to put it nicely on way back to room. Since it was late and we needed rest from the long trip... More

If you are only staying for a night, it's tolerable. We have stayed for 5 now, the ac barely works. When it does its screeching loud. Room service is terrible. If you're coming in summertime don't expect to swim, because there's crowds of people at the pool constantly. Rooms are cleaned to the minimum. Our sheets were stained yellow with... More

The place was so disappointing we checked out a day early. We used a groupon and didn't research the place ahead of time. Thought it was an older quaint lodge in the mountains. It was basically a cheap motel with a rough crowd and the typical parking lot pool on the street. So noisy all night long we had to... More
