We moved here after a terrible experience at a motel down the road and loved it. The motel is older, but the rooms were very clean, and the management was very professional and friendly. If you are looking for something very reasonably priced, and is professional, clean and close to the big parkway this is a great choice. We will... More

Been staying with Tom and Marlene for YEARS! I normally try to take a mini vacation to Gatlinburg once a month in the fall and winter. It's like a second home. I sleep so well! Water pressure is better than home! Downtown Gatlinburg is a could blocks away and a trolley stop is across the street. Would recommend this motel... More

I read the reviews and decided to stay here. What a mistake! If you want to stay in a place that reminds you of a mom and pop that is not well kept or managed this is the place for you but not me. Outdated is just for starts. Not clean and that is just not acceptable! They must have... More

The East Side is charmingly old-fashioned, and a great value. You're a short walk to the shops of downtown Gatlinburg, and there is a great little pool for when you just feel like chilling. These folks are great. We've been coming here for 10 years, and the couple who runs the East Side knows us on sight. It's so important... More

This hotel is far from up-to-date. Paneling, Shag carpet, and an actually key still. BUT if you are a young family and dont mind a little walk, it is the perfect place to stay if you are on a tight budget. Very close to the strip. Only downer is the the walk back is slight up hill but for me... More

Just got back home from our mini-vacation in Gatlinburg. The owners are so friendly that alone makes me want to stay with them again. It is an older motel but was clean. Nice pool. If you are on a cheap budget then stay here.

I stayed a week at the East Side Motel this spring and found my stay delightful. It was a very clean motel and it is in a perfect location just off of the Parkway a few hundred yards or so on HWY 321. Very friendly and helpful staff. Made us feel like it was our home for the week. Would... More

My wife and I have stayed at this place numerous times. The owner is great the rooms are clean and the price is great. The rooms are older but very clean and it is very close to Gatlinburg. They have a swimming pool and you are just miles away from great hiking trails in the beautiful smokey mountains.
