4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Sweet, family owned business. Loved the parrot that's been there for years and the fact that the staff does little things to make your stay more comfortable. The room we stayed in was on the river, so it had a beautiful view. The complex is dated, but very clean. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

Zoders is a trip back to the kind of motels I wish we could have gone to as a kids. It is a little dated but the location is great and the charm is flowing as well as the stream our balcony jutted over. The complex itself is interesting and includes a fire pit with plenty of wood, paper and... More

Zoder Inn will most likely get my business once I am able to afford a trip to Gatlinburg again. The location, scenery and customer service were outstanding. Let's begin. My first experience with the Zoder Inn was while making reservations. The Zoder Inn is located on one of the rivers running into Gatlinburg. When I say "on the river", I... More

Nice cozy rooms overlooking a mountian stream in the heart of Gatlinburg. It's Southern hospitality at its best with a friendly, helpful staff. And the facilities are excellent - stroll the grounds to explore them; find the rec. room where wine & cheese is served daily at five o'clock. We would book here again - recommended.

Immediately went back to front desk and they didn't seem surprised and gave us Rm 116. The room was ok did have some wallpaper issues and the built in cupboards were falling apart! Did I... More

Dear vluv2travl: Thank you for your comments regarding your visit at Zoder’s Inn & Suites. I am sorry that the accommodations were not to your expectations. Because Zoder’s Inn is 74 years old, the motel and room set up is going to be different from more modern hotels, and plans for renovating, updating and redecorating the rooms and suites are in...

My husband and I stayed at Zoders while on a motorcycle trip of the Smoky Mountains. Check in was efficient, but the clerk was not friendly. Her one comment to me was 'are you on the motorcycle'. The parrot had more to say than the clerk. We were assigned to a room towards the back, and I can honestly say... More

We got married and decided to come here for out Honeymoon. The place is great and we will return! The river is beautiful and peaceful. The pool is great and your still within walking distance of everything. They also have a fire pit and wood so you can start a nice fire and sit outside.

My wife and I decided to stay here as opposed to where we usually stay and glad that we did. The location is not as convenient to the main attractions as where we normally stay, but it is still in town and quiet, so you have the best of two worlds. Even though we have read other reviews that state... More

I loved it at Zoders Inn! We had the best room right over the creek! Wouldn't change anything about this place! The people who worked are very nice & always there to help with anything! I'll be back in Nov! I'm counting down the days! I'll be seeing you soon!

The room was clean and neat. But It is the breakfast serving. There was no buffet, you have to order the bread, cereals, juice and coffee from a lady standing there in a counter, which for me was a bit of awkward. We loved the view of the river though.
