This was our first time here and it was nice and we couldnt beat the price! The guy at the front desk at check in was nice and funny. We had a bottom floor room right next to vending which made it nice. The room was a nice size and had a fridge, microwave. The sink was outside of the... More

We have just returned from another wonderful trip to the Smokey Mountains and Gatlinburg. We were looking for a locally owned hotel/motel for this stay. The motel we have stayed for years has been torn down to be replaced with a large expensive hotel. When I look for a place to stay to stay in Gatlinburg I go for locally... More

This is a good motel on a budget. The bathrooms really need to be updated but other than that it's great. It had a flat screen TV and a nice fridge. The beds were comfy. It was a cozy room. Some of the decor may be a little old. The bathroom needed a remodel. The man who was at the... More

It was a decent place to sleep. Beds are extra firm but the TV's and TV stations were decent. Everyone was very nice. If you are looking for a simple place to sleep and walking distance to the main strip this will work.

We lucked into this hotel. We booked another one, but that one was awful. We found this while out driving around. The front desk lady was wonderful, very helpful. The pools were nice. Rooms were nice, clean. Nothing fancy, but just right.

My family and I chose this because of the location. It's a very short walk to town which was great with kids. The room very small and had a strange odor. The tub and toilet area needed to be replaced. It was very dirty looking. I would not stay here again.

My daughter had a soccer tournament at Rocky Top Sports World so we needed a cheap place to crash for a couple of nights. This place was great! A typical motel in layout but clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. The pillows were fluffy without being too soft. We were in a cold snap that weekend and the... More

Great value, quiet rooms, new smart TVs, extra comfy beds. Stayed here on a trip from Minnesota to South Carolina. This seems like the perfect place to jump off into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Pisgah National Forest. A couple short blocks walk along a creek to downtown Gatlinburg where anything touristy a person could want can be... More

Stayed here for three nights while on a family vacation. It's a short walk to downtown and the aquarium. Free parking at the hotel. Rooms were very very clean. Beds were very comfortable. Staff was very polite. Will be going back to this place this summer
