I reserved the room for two nights (February 7-8, 2015) through Travelocity. When checking into the hotel, I paid cash for both nights. When we opened the door to the room, it was down hill! The maroon 1970's carpet was filthy, sofa was consuming itself, the non-smoking room smelled of smoke, there was no water (plumbing issues as per the... More

I bought a trip to Gatlinburg for my in-laws as a Christmas gift. I booked with booking.com because the deal seemed reasonable. The picture of the room that I selected had a fireplace but when I called to get more details on the room, they said they didn't have that room type on Booking.com, so they agreed to upgrade the...

My fiancé and I stayed two nights close to Christmas. We booked a nice king size room with a jacuzzi and fireplace. When we got there, they had put our reservation in wrong, over charged me, and tried to make it my fault. Second, when we went to our room, the elevator is falling apart as well as the trashy...

I definitely was not impressed by this hotel. I understand that they are doing renovations, so I hope these make huge improvements to the property. The bathroom in our room was extremely small. My husband is 6'4" and he had to bend down in the shower to wash his hair. The shower head was at the right height for someone... More

Made a Reservation on short Notice through priceline for a Super great deal, not knowing what to expect, checked in to the Hotel, and noticed a tremendous amount of upgrades had been done to the place, it seemed like a good opportunity to check out the new rooms, I ask for a Free Upgrade to a Jacuzzi Room, a rather...

I was there ten minutes and saw two roach like Bugs. Gross carpets. Horribly outdated decor. Smells. Just run down and dirty. Loved our time outside of the room.... But that room was nasty! Will not return. So many other beautiful places in the area for the money . This one was wayyyy over priced !!!!!

I book this place based on the photos of there rooms online. The rooms are NOTHING like what they are advertising on line. The guy at the front desk was very nice and showed us a second room, but it was just as nasty. We asked for refund and stayed some where else. I would rather stay in our truck... More
