We have stayed in Gilette before.. It is a old hotel but because it was clean and convenient to downtown Gatlinburg we chose again... The water was SO HARD to get adjusted in the shower!!! Took me ten minutes to get the water from scalding just so I could get in the shower... We had problems upon check in..we were... 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.

This was my first stay at the Gillette. It has been recommended by colleagues, but I have always been a bit hesitant about staying there. I will not be hesitant any longer. It is somewhat dated, but the facility is well-cleaned and well-maintained. I arrived without a reservation, on a Thursday night in the height of 'leaf-season', and was promptly... More

Good location to down town Gatlinburg. And close to bypass roads around town. Clean rooms and grounds. We aim to please attitude. Great restaurants all within walking distance. Convention center across the street. Pigeon forge is 20 minutes away.

This hotel has everything you could wish for without going overboard in luxury. It was very clean with friendly staff and within walking distance of anything you wished to do. The Log Cabin Pancake House is within a very short walk and many other eating establishments. The hotel is family owned and very economical as far as your vacation budget... More

We have stayed in this motel several times over the past 3-4 years. The rooms are big and always clean. We have previously been attending events at the Convention Center, which is directly across the street. It is close enough to the main street for a short walk , but far enough to give you a little more quite time.... More

The room is clean, which hearing the stories from friends in nearby hotels can be difficult to find around here. There is a small working fridge and microwave which is nice. The bed is ok, sore back in the am. Pillow are pretty bad, my friend is using her travel neck pillow because they are pathetic. The tv has been... More

This was our second trip to Gatlinburg in the last three weeks. We stayed at the Hampton last time and I decided to go back to Gillette becuase it is so much less expensive ($79 vs $149). The Gillette is a family owned property and what you get is a large room that although dated somewhat is neat and extremely... More
