This was affordable and clean. We were able to walk a couple of blocks to visit all the stores and markets. We could leave our car even though we would not be done until after check out time. With limited parking this was a big plus.

My fiance and I stayed here two different nights and we were very pleased both times! The staff was very friendly and helpful! The rates are great and the room was clean. The bed was very comfy also and a nice tv. No complaints!

This is a no frills motel located across the Parkway from the Aquarium. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to do in town, and it is also near the trolly line. We were happy to find a clean affordable place in Gatlinburg which seems harder to do these days. Yes, the bathrooms are small and it is... More

My family stays here every time we go to Gatlinburg now. It is an older hotel that has been remodeled and is kept very clean. Being only a couple blocks from the strip is the big plus for us. Oh it also has two pools and the staff is the nicest you will find.

Comfortable beds, clean room, good room service, hot showers, everything working properly and cheap! Will stay again for sure. This was a very good experience for us. The rooms are a little thin though, I can hear what's going on in the rooms next to us which can be a little annoying. Other than that all was great!

This hotel is nothing special, but it is a great option for a cheap place to stay in Gatlinburg.

The front desk staff were very helpful and there are two different pools to choose from, one heated and one... More

Our room was quiet, clean and close to downtown action.The bathroom may be small but the sink is outside the bathroom. It was fine. TV was new and good reception. Beds were comfortable. Staff very friendly. Great value.

Being one of the cheaper hotels in town you expect quality to suffer but it does not here. The staff are extremely friendly, the rooms are very clean, and the large heated pool is great! I believe in recent years it has come under new ownership and has been getting updated over time. We had brand new beds and a... More

We are a family of four. We enjoyed are stay. Loved the location and the price was affordable. The rooms were clean and we had 2 queen beds. There are 2 swimming pools. One is heated the other pool is not. My boys liked the unheated pool. We will stay again. We are all ready planning our next trip.
