Last night at the Nakon Motel was terrible so we hoped to find something better tonight. We wanted to find something in Gatlinburg close to the main street so we could walk around some. We tried the Econolodge and they were full, so we saw the Gillette one block over and decided to try that one. The price was average.... More

This room was very clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. I came to Gatlinburg for a State Square Dance Convention and this motel was directly across the street from where I was dancing, not even a five minute walk, which was especially nice after a full day of dancing. My room had 2 full beds,... More

Spend 3 nights in Gatlinburg, TN for a square dance Convention. The personnel of Gillette Motel are so friendly! And helpful. The Motel is older, but clean and well-maintained. The room was clean, the air-conditioner worked wonderfully! There was enough room for a comfy stay! Television with lots of channels to watch! Loved the water pressure in the shower. Clean... More

We spent another weekend at the locally owned Gillette hotel in Gatlinburg. If you need somewhere to stay and don't mind a local hotel that is a little dated this is not a bad place. We always use this as our fallback place if we can't get one of the Hilton properties. It is always clean and the staff is... More

This hotel is inexpensive and a 2 minute walk to the middle of ten main strip. Rooms Are spacious and clean. An old 1950's style balcony and decent pool. The staff was very friendly and provided some extra pillows and blankets. You have to eat breakfast somewhere as there isn't a free breakfast, but we wanted pancakes anyway. There is... More

This motel is old and dated but is still owned and operated by the family that opened it in the 50's. This equals excellent treatment and service. Location is great and it is always super clean. Love the Gilettes!

We stayed here over the past weekend for a family getaway. The staff is very friendly, and housekeeping makes it feel a brand new room everyday. All amenities have been thought of, even a microwave and mini fridge. We had a great stay and will be definitely be staying again!

Had to book this hotel as it was a spur of the moment trip and most of the other places were booked...but so glad we did! Yes, it's a little 'vintage' as most of the reviews say. However, the cleanliness and friendliness of the hotel and staff greatly outweigh it's slightly aged interior. The location was amazing, we were able... More
