This is an older one-story motel off the main strip not too far from the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I have no doubt this was a small private motel before it got acquired and corporatized by Econolodge. The room was small, although they’ve tried to equip it with all the accoutrements. You park right outside your room... More

Nice, clean room. Could have done with a curtain hiding the ugly clothes hanging space but no other criticisms. Would have given it 4/5 but when we arrived, there was a note on the door saying to go to another hotel to check in. It was only around the corner, but still a bit frustrating, then they hadn't left us... More

I read the other reviews before booking. It is clean and basic. I would stay here again though. There was an issue getting into the rooms. We couldn't open the doors. There's a trick to open the door, that the desk didn't tell us about. Annoying that there was a trick to get in the rooms, but once we got... More

This hotel was worth the price paid. It was clean and the staff was very courteous. It's a small walk from the main strip, and some of the street lights were out, on the walk to the hotel, but that's not the hotel's responsibility. Good value. Will probably stay again.

I read other reviews from trip advisor, they were just as described. Hotel was dated, but clean and a great value for the money. The breakfast offered was very limited. There is a great pancake house next door. Would stay there again.

Econo lodge belle aire was not our first choice but was close to where we wanted to shop/walk. Room was clean and very rustic. Bed was unbelievably comfy. Basic inexpensive hotel with a great location for shopping.

We would normally not choose an economy hotel, but we were coming in very late and literally just needed somewhere "cheap" to stay the night before our cabin in Gatlinburg was available. I was extremely and pleasantly surprised at the condition and cleanliness of our room. The room seemed to have been recently updated and was extremely clean ( and... More

If u don't like to walk grab the trolley, but you should try this little place. It's not the Ritz Carlton, but its clean, and nice views. Joseph, the day desk clerk was very nice and truly made our stay enjoyable. This was our first time staying here, but we will make it our regular hotel from now on.
