This is the third time I've stayed at Zoders, and once again, I wasn't disappointed. This is a nice, quiet and quaint old school type hotel/motel. Beds are comfortable, nice water pressure in the shower and the rooms are clean. If you're looking for something fancy, this isn't the place you. If you're looking for a quiet, laid back hotel...

I made a reservation at Zoders Inn based on the good reviews on Trip Advisor. I was expecting a congenial family run business. It is not! They seem to be perturbed when you even come to the front desk. No one appears to even like their job. Our family arrived around 12 noon knowing that check in was at 3:00.... More

Dear Valerie C. Thank you for your review. First, let me say that Zoder's Inn and Suites values every guest that stays with us and appreciate every one of them. When you arrived at 12NOON (our checkout time), your room was not ready. We make every effort to make sure that rooms are done by the 3PM check in time.... More

We stayed in Zoder's in June 2015 and I absolutely loved this place. The rooms were nice but what really made it special was the running brook when you opened the door out onto the balcony. So peaceful and great for families. The location of Zoder's was also ideal as it was a 2 minute walk from there to the... More

I recently had an opportunity to spend a couple of nights at Zoders, with my family. We were en-route to another place. It was a good way to break up our drive, and give our kids an opportunity to experience Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. We got there about an hour early, and requested an early check-in. As soon as I walked into... More

I have been coming to Zoder's since the early 1970's when they were a Best Western. It always felt like home so I was a little concerned when I read some of the reviews on Tripadvisor. This was my first visit in 15 years and had been promising my grandniece and my friends grandson this trip for a couple years.... More

We stayed at Zoders over the weekend and a few days into the week. We absolutely loved it. The location is great because you can easily walk to the congested area of Gatlinburg but still be a little away from the noise and crowd. The hotel was clean and had many unexpected amenities, such as complimentary wine and cheese each... More

Zoders is very conveniently located near attractions. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. We absolutely loved the balcony overlooking the rushing water. Room was quiet, clean and very comfortable. Pools were great. Breakfast was delicious with a lot to choose from. We will definitely stay there again.

The beds in our room were very uncomfortable! Balcony over stream, pool areas, and common areas are very nice. Depends on what your looking for as far as the location goes. It is close to a breakfast resturant, but the hike to the main strip shopping and entertainment is easy for younger people and those used to walking and exercise,... More

Read other reviews and Zoders' website. Place met expectations. First visit to Gatlinburg. Pleased this place was off the main strip. Main strip is a circus. We got a room with bedroom and separate couch/bed for kids...spacious. Balcony/lanai was nice over looking stream. My boys enjoyed both pools, wading in stream with water shoes, shooting balls in basketball hoop, breakfasts,... More
