This hotel is also within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg. Free Wifi but we did not use it. They have no breakfast, but the rates reflect that There is coffee... More

Misrepresented on the internet; pictures portrayed a luxury hotel but was a dump, checked in 08/01/14 went to room, smelled of smoke even though it was a non-smoking room and was given the threat of additional charges at check-in if we smoked in the room during the stay. Tub was dirty, bed smelled musty, and a plastic cup w/soda and... More

We booked here last minute for our anniversary because it was cheap and available. We weren't told until we got there that the wifi "might not be fixed yet." It wasn't until after we paid that we were told it wouldn't be fixed all weekend. The tv volume was finicky and didn't like to work all that often. The view... More

I don't even know where to begin. I am so disappointed in this place. The first night we got here, our remote didn't work. This is a petty little thing, so we just asked the front desk for a new one. She instead called maintenance. We waited two hours for him to arrive, and called back and said we didn't... More

Stayed here for a final night in the smokies. Had a hard time finding a room for the night and this is where we ended up. Hotel staff was friendly. Room was older but you can tell they had tried to spruce it up as much as they could on a budget. The stream view and patio we had on... More

This hotel is close to the park and within walking distance of everything you could want in downtown Gatlinburg. The staff was very accommodating, allowing me to park there before check in (and parking in Gatlinburg on a holiday weekend would not have been fun) and also allowing a late checkout. The beds were clean, and the bathroom was clean.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Resting majestically above the town, Chalet Inn maintains the kind of rustic elegance once known to all great smoky mountain resorts. The Inn's landscaped surroundings, mountain stone architecture and charming character-filled rooms make you feel a world away. Yet, the attractions of Gatlinburg are just a few blocks away. The Inn offers a range of accommodations from suites in the original complex to more standard rooms with river-view, just a block from Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway, with Ripleys Aquarium of the Smokies just 3 blocks away. ... more   less
