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

Just happened to walk off the strip in gatlinburg and my wife found this hotel. The rates are great for gatlinburg and we were pleasantly surprised at the room. The room was clean and there were just some really thoughtful things about the place. You can tell that the owners care about the business and it showed. The husband was... More

We booked 3 nights here to visit GSM park and I was initially worried about some of the reviews. Writers had commented that the place was old and the showers and beds were bad. We had a great bed and shower and the hotel had a kitschy retro feel that didn't feel "old", it was really cool. Everything is super... More

We turned at traffic light #8 and came upon this gem! The hotel is older, but it it extremely clean! The staff was very friendly. Rooms included a flat screen tv, small fridge, coffee maker and a microwave. The bed was very comfortable. You can walk to the strip in just a few minutes. Would definitely stay again!

We love staying at the Gillette Motel. It's centrally located to anything you would want to do in Downtown Gatlinburg. We have stayed here numerous times. It is an older Motel but it is a CLEAN and well managed motel. We like the suite with the kitchen in it best of all. I have stayed in the regular rooms lots... More
