I've stayed in Gatlinburg, TN every year for the last several years and this is far and away the best hotel I've stayed at. I'm sure there may be nicer properties in Gatlinburg but not many and not for the price. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was extremely clean but maybe slightly small.This ,hotel is about... More

Great hotel! Stayed on one of the larger suites and it was very spacious. Room/maid service was excellent. Prompt attention to needs like down free pillows and extra towels. The full breakfast was excellent and super easy. I would only suggest adding a second omelette/egg station to decrease waiting.

Very clean hotel room. Great location at the entrance to the park. Great way to avoid all the traffic on the tourist strip. Continental breakfast was nice. Staff was friendly. . Would stay there again.
