After finding this hotel on Groupon for a GREAT PRICE we booked. The pictures on Groupon vaguely resemble the room. We have adjoining rooms on the first floor. One was VERY clean...the other had a "smell". Had to buy carpet fresh and air freshener to stay in it. Very dated and the beds are meager comfortable.....TV is old, but has... More

Bought this on groupon, we had never been to this area before. My issues fell with the fact the place was dirty and very run down. Looks like at some point (being the mid 80's) this place was nice. However now its very run down and kind of sad. Great for anyone location scouting for run down 80's motel for... More

Great entertainment. Had Elvis impersonator perform in the parking lot for three hours. The room was comfortable and we were on the first floor a little smelly. I had made a reservation and it was a good thing I did. The breakfast was real nice, hot breakfast. Except the line up was very long, there was nowhere to sit in... More

I agree with reviews-this motel is clean-however -our microwave didn't work-hard time getting fridge to work-breakfast has no fresh fruit-yogurt-meat-carb nightmare! It was inexpensive and we made do! LOVED the Elvis concert in the parking lot! Pool needed cleaning and seemed to have no hours to close-which made for noise. But being clean made up for some of the faults!

We had been in Gatlinburg for a few days and were leaving to go home. We had one extra day so we went to pigeon forge and found the island drive motel right in the middle of every thing. Across the street is the newest attraction called. The Island. Which has many neat things to do. This motel is one... More

Free fast WiFi.....NOT....was hard to connect and once connected it would only work for a short time. NOT spacious rooms. ...our Two queen size room was crammed especially for four people. ...the toilet and shower area was only big enough to turn... More

I would have left if I hadn't already prepaid. There was no where to park, the front desk was rude, I couldn't open the door to my room unless I kicked it. Hard. The room was dirty. Dresser split down middle. Bathroom was HAIRY. Just gross. I don't mind outdated furniture or 1990's TVs, but I do mind if the... More

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.
