Great hotel within walking distance to just about everything. Peter at the front desk was very friendly. Only "con" was that our room wasn't ready by check in time at 4pm. Can't wait to go back, already planning in next summer!

We had a 1 bedroom and had plenty of room for the 5 of us. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub the most. We did not spend a lot of time in our room though. There was a lot of things to do within walking distance.

This was our first family vacation to Gatlinburg and won't be our last. The place was always clean inside and out, even the parking garage was spotless. It is within walking distance to everything downtown in Gatlinburg. The staff was very helpful one night after 1100 when my son got sick in the bathroom and hallway. They sent up cleaning... More

The location is great. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo that was very spacious and nice. We liked the pool area and watched the July 4th fireworks from the front entrance. We were sad to leave this place!

Has good kitchen amenities, which can be very helpful for a week long vacation. Good location. It is more like a rental but it works well for a family stay. No room service but not a big deal because of kitchen amenities.

Fresh new upgraded furniture, carpet and bedding, and a beautiful cut stone fireplace gives this fully equipped condo the feel of a beautifully furnished mountain chalet. An indoor and outdoor pool, hot tubs and Monday Night swim party for kids with poolside movies make this one of our favorite vacation spots. Actually we own a timeshare right next door, but... More

The condos were typical and spacious. The pool area a tad small but we were only there for one night and didn't jump in. There were plenty of people enjoying it during the evening. They have figured out a good way to get you to listen to a sales pitch to attend their ownership meeting. They do not give you... More
