The hotel is in desperate need of a remodel, especially when it comes to the plumbing. When I took a shower the water kept going from cold to hot to cold. It was terrible!!! I can attest that the room was clean, but the furnishings looked like they had been there since the 60s.

I stayed at the Gillette for the first time in August 2013 for a business trip. It is very handily positioned directly across the street from the convention center. Yes, like all the hotels in Gatlinburg, it was rather dated, but I was impressed with the immaculately clean room and bathroom upon my arrival. I was also pleased to see... More

We were recommended this motel by a friend for its convenience to everything. Although is is dated, it is so clean with very clean rooms and spacious as well. The price was super and if we return, it will be to the Gillette. Staff was very nice and cleaning staff went above and beyond. Once you park, you don't have... More

The motel was convenient to the civic center where we were attending a conference. The staff was pleasant upon checking in. The motel is Extremely LOUD. The walls are paper thin. We could hear everything the neighboring room was saying. There were two rooms with VERY obnoxious, drunk, loud people staying in them. At 11pm (after several hours of listening... More

We hand selected a room ahead of time. Charges were made to our card ahead of time. Day of arrival they said that room is no longer available, but we gave you this other room. Upon inspection the second room was no near the level of the first room but yet the same price. We asked for an equivalent room,... More

We have stayed at the Gillette Hotel for over 35 years when we go to Gatlinburg. Although it is not the most luxurious hotel anywhere, it is the cleanest. You can never doubt that your room and bath will be spotless. The location is also the best, just across the street from the Civic Center, and blocks to downtown. The... More

We booked at the last minute, the gentleman that I talked with was very nice and helpful. The rooms are a little dated, but are very clean and well maintained. The bed was super comfortable. The ladies in the office were very friendly and helpful. We definitely stay here again.
