We booked these rooms in July, so we could have them together on same floor, as high as we could get them. We get there none of them are together, on the bottom floor-plus the hotel was full of teenagers, that would sit in hallways laughing and talking until past midnight. After the problems we had getting in our rooms,... More

Average, clean hotel, nothing really special other than the location. Really enjoyed the omelette for breakfast cooked to order, along with all the breakfast. complimentary USA Today. Nice looking indoor pool, but was detached from the hotel, I did not have time to try it out though!

The staff here is very nice, hotel is clean, and the breakfast is awesome. We always stay here on our annual trip to see the leaves change in The Great Smoky Mountains. The hotel is in an ideal location.

We stayed in a king, balcony, street-side room on the sixth floor, and the Christmas lights from the balcony was pretty cool.

We found the wall paper separating on one... More
