Ok so this is an older hotel, but we were looking for an inexpensive getaway. Cons: pool had to be closed due to algae and the fireplace didn't work. Ok it was the end of August but it was a cool night and it would have been nice. Pros: the staff, they were very friendly. Room was clean, spacious and... More

Although the price was very affordable and the location fairly good, it was a very old motel, that is dire need of upgrading and renovating. The staff was friendly and surprising enough the beds were very comfortable. The problem was the bathroom and carpeting,which even though they were cleaned, felt dirty. Will not stay there again.

Nice large room and the staff was very friendly. The hotel may be older but the rooms were updated. The motel was far enough away from the strip to feel relaxing but was within a reasonable walk of everything.

Just returned from a 4 night trip to Gatlinburg and we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. I read the reviews before booking and honestly all hotels have good, bad and ugly. I have been coming to Gatlinburg for years and this was one of my favorite stays. We had a seamless check-in and all our room requests were... More

Spent a wonderful 5 days at this cozy gem of a motel. The staff was more than pleasant & accommodating. Our double queen room was large & clean as a pin. The beds were as comfortable as any you would expect in a motel that charged triple the price. The bedding being entirely white let me know there were no... More

Motor lodge is centrally located. A little outdated but a really good and clean room for the price. We stayed one night and the staff was very nice. You could actually walk to restaurants and shops. There is a basic continental breakfast of coffee, juice, cereal and pastries.

Stayed one night in the two bedroom 2 bath suite. Very pleased with all the room. Only draw back was this suite is right on the road with a lot of traffic. Yes this motel could use some updating, but was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Will definitely stay here again. Not far from the main drag... More

We stayed in the apartment/suite style room with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and kitchenette. It was very roomy! Awesome for a family but still private. Great deal for the price! The office staff was super nice! Older hotel but the rooms are clean. The Continental breakfast could be a little better with adding some fruit (apples & oranges)... but they... More

This was a great little motor lodge just behind the main strip. The rooms were in good shape for the age of the hotel and the price was great. Continental breakfast. Walking distance to the strip and right next to the lift up the ski slopes. While your here get some Bennetts BBQ. It's to die for
