We also enjoyed our stay, the beds were among the most comfortable, and close to restaurants and attractions. Nice private porch, a breakfast of cereal, coffee, juice, doughnuts and muffins. Mary, the manager, was top-notch!

The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfy and the place was clean. The room was dated, 1970s and a little worn but CLEAN! It was in a great location, a block off the parkway keeping it quite peaceful yet able to walk to anything you wanted. Quaint setting, the balconies overlook the pool and a hillside by... More

This was an unexpectedly nasty experience. The room was dirty, the sink was plugged and the room smelled. Pool was advertised as heated - it wasn't. There was no WiFi- they hijack their WiFi from the surrounding establishments. Drunk teenagers were hanging out in the parking lot harassing the guests and the staff thought it was funny. The staff was... More

Stayed with friends in the 2 bedroom suite overlooking the pool from Sept 7th to the 12th. Immediately on entering I could see the worn out carpets and very old poor excuse for a couch in the shared livingroom area. TV sets are old as is the air conditioning, but worked well. The free WiFi did not work the whole... More

My wife and I stayed here twice before and had been pleased so I booked a two bedroom suite for ourselves and three traveling companions for a five night stay from Sep 7 to Sep 12th. The first issue was the toilet roll holder that wasn't attached to the wall in the one bathroom. As soon as it was mentioned... More

Customer service was impeccable!!!! The hotel is older and could use a face lift. Beds were amazingly comfortable. It was very nice to have an area outside of the bathroom to get ready at. Private balcony looked over pool. Its worth the money especially to be so close to all restaurants and attractions.

This motel is situated away from the busiest part of town but that's all it has to recommend it. Very basic but reasonable breakfast in a pleasant breakfast room. The location is good because Gatlinburg is a very busy, noisy town.
