Our family of four (two kids ages 10 & 8) spent a few days in Gatlinburg TN at this property. The hotel has been recently remodeled and it is a very beautiful property. Unless you rent a house on one of the mountainsides, this is the best view in Gatlinburg! The indoor pool has two waterslides and is great for... More

Check-in at 4:00 pm delayed and we had to wait in long line. Service for dinner in hotel was poor, due to employees not showing up for work. This should have been corrected after it happened the first night, but it wasn't. Food, nothing to get excited about. Chocolate cookies stashed away at front desk and we only obtained them... More

My wife and I spent a wonderful 5 days at the remodeled Park Vista Hotel in Gatlinburg this past week. We have been staying at this hotel since it was built years ago, including having different names and connections over the years. This is the best the hotel has looked and experienced in many years. The remodeled lobby was inviting,... More

I made a reservation for October 15th & 16th. I told them when making the reservation we would not be arriving until after midnight. This was to be a week-end get-away for my daughter and myself. My daughter is in pre-med and works part-time and desperately needed a relaxing break. It was also her birthday. I informed them when making... More

This is the tallest hotel in Gatlinburg! I don't think there are any bad views from the rooms since it is a "round" hotel. Each room has a private balcony - you don't see your neighbors. We checked in on Friday (early) and our room was ready. The staff was great. We started out on the 2nd floor and I... More

Dear ginabuchanan; Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your experience. October is a very busy month so you are correct, taking the alternate routes is always a plus, even when just getting into Gatlinburg. You can always use Route 321 off from Route 40 to reach the city. It is a very nice right with great views... More

My husband and I stayed here for our first trip to the Great Smoky Mountains. The location was perfect, up the hill and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of G'burg.

Sitting on top of the hill, you can't miss it, and we were happy this is the hotel we chose while in Gatlinburg. I did not want to be in the middle of the turmoil, which rules out most hotels on the strip. I've also stayed at the Bluegreen condos in Gatlinburg which are nice, and a log cabin near... More

Unfortunately it is an ugly skyscaper in a beautiful area but that does mean we enjoy good views from the balcony. The rooms are circular as is the hotel. The aircon did not work properly. The restauarnt service was slow. The food itself was ok. The pool is more for kids than adults, and the jacuzzi needs enlarging or adding... More
