I stayed here because it was right next to the conference center and within walking distance of everything in town. Although a bit dated, the place is clean and the staff was friendly. It was absolutely the biggest hotel room I've ever seen, also with the largest hot tub I've seen in a hotel. Everything worked fine (except the fireplace,... More

Reading some of the reviews, we weren't sure about this hotel at first. We did know that the location was close to the Parkway, near the end we spend our time and we didn't want to spend more than $60 per night this time around. Check-in was better than we expected since we had booked an additional night seperately but... More

Was very pleased with this hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and up to date. Location was perfect for us. Walk shop, drop off bags, walk shop some more. We had a change of plans and needed to cancel our 2nd night. I booked through orbitz.com. Both the hotel and orbitz worked with me to get this... More

This hotel is close to the Main Strip and within walking distance to just about everything in Gatlinburg. It's old and a bit run down, but just fine for the area. Our room was clean and I loved the shower/tub which looked to be the newest thing in the room. Excellent hot water and water pressure. The breakfast is average.... More

We value your opinions and they are very important to us. We use the guest opinions to let us know what is important for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. I do apologize for the city workers having to pick up garbage so early in the morning. You are correct about our location, it is great for parking your car and... More

We stayed here for one night to visit the town and do some hiking through the mountains. The price ($104 + tax) and location of the hotel is what drew us to it. The hotel was clean, but very outdated. I had requested a room with a view and they did fill this request, we even had a balcony. We... More

We enjoyed 2 nights in the Econolodge on Reagan Dr. in Gatlinburg. There were 5 of us so we got a bigger suite with a separate king bedroom. The suite was spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was good and they had coffee in the office. The coffee maker in the room was a one cup... More

I want to thank you for spending your 2015 spring break with us. It was a delight having you guys stay with us. Our family suites are very spacious for large groups. It is especially nice to have the choice of being with the group or closing off the bedroom door for privacy. We hope you will come back and... More

I did have some miss ups. They charged my card when I told them I was paying cash. When I got to the room it wasn't clean at all and they told me it would be a 30 min wait. When I did get in my room everything worked and it was nice. Location is great and I stayed 2... More

Our room was located behind the pool. I loved this because it was convenient for coming and going throughout the day. The best thing about this hotel is the short walk to the main strip of Gatlinburg (free parking) and even the closesness to the Log Cabin Pancake House (up the street, to the left, and up the street a...

OK, so I've read dozens of reviews about the lack of meat/fruit with the free breakfast. That's probably never going to change. This hotel's features are location, price and free parking, and if those things are less important to you than getting free meat and fruit in the morning, then this probably isn't the place for you. Aside from being... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay. Our suites with the separate bedrooms are excellent for families. When you drive for hours in close quarters with the family, it is always nice to have your own space upon arrival.
