We had a ground floor room with a kitchenette . The room was very clean, and the kitchenette had every thing we needed. The bed slept great, and the parking was good. Mr. Bales and the staff there were very friendly. This is where we'll stay everytime we return to Gatlinburg.

There were roaches in the room. There was something that looked like rat crap in the bed between the sheets. Will not ever stay there. Not a... More

We stayed at Bales and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The motel is older, and there is nothing fancy about it at all, but if you are looking for a clean place to stay at a great value, this is the place to stay in Gatlinburg. It is very close to the Aquarium and within walking distance to almost everything. Mr.... More

+'s are huge room, good bed, convenient location, nice tub/shower combo in large bathroom, refrigerator, microwave, good parking, nice people running it, and good rate (BTW, the only place I have stayed in the last 15 years where you could pay upon leaving but I paid up front). The -'s are a small TV set and the lighting was a... More
