We just returned from a two-night stay here, so I looked at other recent reviews along with the photos on the TA website. We did not stay in a room that looked anything like those! We were in the two-story concrete building behind the motel. While not rundown or dirty, this set of rooms has absolutely no street appeal and... More

The second building host the two queen rooms which is the one you were located in. We want to thank you for being our guest for... More

Loved this hotel. Had a very large, clean room in a safe area a couple hundred feet from the main street downtown. Like all Gatlinburg hotels, they were built in the late 70's early 80's and it shows, but as long as you understand that this isnt a "new" hotel you will be very satisfied. Only issue was with parking...one... More

We stayed 4th of July weekend. I was trying to build up more Choice points. I also wanted something close to the hiking trailhead. I picked a dud. I am local within 150 miles & come to the Smokies several times a year. I know a lot of the hotels & motels are not new so I do not expect... More

Very friendly staff. The rooms were clean and had no smell. Rooms were spacious. Beds were decent. Rooms are a little in need of some cosmetic care though. Little acoustic on the ceiling is peeling, and the walls could use a fresh coat of paint. The only thing I didn't care for was the parking. Very tight parking and limited.... More

Stayed here for a couple of days in April for a short trip for wife and I. Nice room on fourth floor on street side across from Microtel. Only problem was the garbage truck that empties the dumpster for Microtel makes a lot of noise very early in the morning. Not Econo Lodge's fault. Check in was quick and easy... More

Stayed for 5 nights during 4th of July. Rooms are clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast area is small but good. Hotel is not fancy but is well kept up and close to downtown, We will be back in Gatlinburg next year and have already booked here for next year.

You really can't complain about a 2 room suite for $89/night that allows pets and is right by the pool and a block from the Gatlinburg main drag - but the room was dark and musty and the breakfast was adequate but not great. If we go back to Gatlinburg I might try another place - but all in all... More
