Loved this Best Western & all the friendly staff! Our fav? Drive up to your room, enter and proceed to balcony door for R&R overlooking the little river. Within walking distance to everything you need and then some. No complaints on this trip to Gatlinburg & did not deal with crowds since kiddos were in school so very pleasant &... More

I've stayed here before and love the location in proximity to The Great Smoky Mountain National Park. After camping out in the backcountry I look for a good bed to sleep in and they do have them. Pool is cool and Gatlinburg over all is quite a unique place to hang out. Will be back.

The bed was very comfortable. The location of the hotel was perfect. My wife is hanicapped and the bathhroom facilities were perfect for her. The breakfast was enjoyable.Service was prompt. The patio area behind our room was nice for star gazing. We enjoyed the 42" LCD wide screen TV. We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Twin Islands... More

I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of this hotel. The room we had was a king bed room with a balcony and although the "river" it overlooks was dried up, it was a nice clean balcony. The mini fridge is bigger than most I've seen. Wish the internet worked even a little, they said they... More

This motel is set back from the main "strip" of Gatlinburg, and you can walk everywhere. It was obviously older but spotlessly clean, with curvy outdoor hallway "ramps" that lead up to the 2nd floor - very easy with rolling luggage. Liked the balcony (although not private) that overlooks the brook and there is a playground for kids. Very reasonable... More

Considering ALL the hotels clustered in the Gatlinburg area, we chose this one because of a bit of loyalty to Best Western due to stays in other parts of country. I understand due to popularity of area you would be fortunate to secure any hotel, but sadly this one is dated and my opinion is that due to the great... More

Disgusting stained carpet that looked like original that never has been replaced. Didn't want to go bare feet, felt greasy. Cobwebs on light fixture. Toilet loose. Good location. Gatlinburg is congested, tacky town. Smokies Nat'l Park was great! Had great time in the park.

Nice location if you want to walk the strip. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was tiny but again clean. Nice outdoor pool area and hot tub. The Rooms do back up to a "river " that is more like a stream and the back of the buildings on the strip. If you're going for the... More

Loved this place!! The view from our room was so beautiful with the river running through. Even saw fishing and well it was just a great place to spend a morning of listening to the water running while drinking your coffee or just to wake up. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff very nice. Pool was clean, the location... More

Definitely a recomendation if you are staying in Gatlinburg. Clean, well maintained room for a fair price/ The location is awesome. walking distance to everything in town. We had a beautiful little river running right behind our room. about the only thing I could complain about was the bathroom is tiny.
