It was our first stay at the Inn. It was a great choice! The location is perfect. Park and never drive! We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch. We spent a lot of time there relaxing and watching the hustle and bustle. Our room was extremely clean, and cleaned daily. While the furniture is older, it is suppose to... More

We stayed recently for a Spring Break getaway. We decided on this inn due to the location and reviews on this site. We had a family suite, which was perfect. The beds were comfortable, the staff friendly, and around the clock coffee availability appreciated. The accommodations are dated but we found it very charming. The rooms have large TV's but...

My husband and I go to Gatlinburg often, but this was a sudden, unexpected trip and we didn't have time to book a room. We were very pleased with our stay at the Gatlinburg Inn.

From my very first interaction with the folks at Gatlinburg Inn, to the time we checked out, our experience with the staff at Gatlinburg Inn was ideal. Breakfast was delicious every day, and they kept the food stocked up throughout the morning, unlike a lot of places that offer complimentary breakfast. The rooms and decor are nostalgic, and while some... More

Very friendly staff. Clean rooms. Pretty good breakfast. Loved the history of the inn. Only real complaint was the temperature. Thermostat didn't seem to really work but luckily temp in room was okay. Location was perfect for easy walking to stores. Overall, nothing fancy but comfortable and unique. I would stay here again.
