White bedclothes on the bed tell me they arent trying to hide anything. Very impressed by the cleanliness. Large spacious rooms. The cleaning staff was more than friendly... More

OK.....About the hotel....I was a little on the iffy side because of some of the reviews on the web. First thing, staff is awesome here. We called and said we would be a smidge late, and "no problem, we will do this and settle up in the morning." No questions, just solutions. The rooms were big and roomy. Very very... More

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
