To us it seems that this former Howard Johnson is getting in decline. The rooms are very noisy (you can easily hear the television of your neighbours). The queen sized beds are too small for two regular persons, and housekeeping asks you of your room needs a cleanup, instead of doing it automatically. Although we chose it because of the... More

We booked this room on the way to gatlinburg for a spur of the moment mini vacation with our 3 year old. First set of keys didn't work, after we had lugged all of our stuff up the hill to the second building behind the main building. I walked back down and was given a staff key and told this... More

My boyfriend and I have never been to Gatlinburg, so we had not expectations of the city and decided to just come on a weekend trip. We got up early and drove from Atlanta and arrived around 10 am. At first sight I was pleased that the hotel was not run down since it was right at $99 a night.... More

The second room was also dirty but at least the bed was made. It had an odor, so we slept in our clothes.The... More

How did I know these random people were really house keeping. Curtains would not close fully so we had to tie them together! Cigarette burns on the bed in... More

The motel, for the price, was great. It was located within walking distance to walk to Gatlinburg or the trolley. The rooms needed updated but it was clean and our rooms were cleaned and new towels were put out every day we were there (5 days). Well worth the money. We would stay there again. :)

I wouldn't stay here again. We didn't have any towels when we checked in and our curtains wouldn't close so we had to clip them shut. The bathroom had hair on the floor that wasn't ours and the carpet seemed soiled. The outside noise kept us awake and the parking is very limited.

The room itself was clean and the staff were pleasant people. The bed was large and comfortable. Bathroom was clean and everything worked. Although the room was clean the hallway had lots of debris on the floor that kept getting tracked into the room. Also, I'm not into hot tub and there was a monstrosity of one in the corner... More

My family and I were set to stay at this hotel from June 21st to 26th. Upon walking in, it just seemed like your typical hotel. However when walking into the bathroom, we found that one, the light would hardly come on, and two the water pressure was extremely low. Taking showers was a nightmare. Wanted to take a bath?...
