I stayed at the Glenstone Lodge Apr 18-Apr 21st. I had an extremely good experience. I booked a Pool View Room with 2 Queensize Beds. Even though the decor of the room was a bit dated, they have upgraded it with a Panasonic Flat Screen TV, and I found the matresses to be very firm and comfortable. Also the water pressure in the shower was good and this is very important to me! The Pool/Spa area is a work of art on 2 different levels. The 9 ft pool has an Infinity Wall of water cascading luxuriously into the 3 ft Wading Pool below. In addition, there is a Hot Tub tucked into another corner of the Wading Pool. The landscaping around the Decking is exquisite, and as far as I can tell, the plants are real! The best thing about the pool , however is the hours of operation: It's open from 10AM-11PM 7 days a week.
I also had the Breakfast at the Patio Restaurant (Open 7AM-11AM, Breakfast only) It was really good! Wait Staff very attentive. Customized Omellettes available, as well as a plethora of wonderful Breakfast items! At 8.95 pp, it beats the comparable Buffet at the Park Vista, up the hill by 5.00! Decidedly one of the best bargains for Breakfast in Gatlinburg!
I found all Staff to be very friendly and accomodating! Also, this Hotel is within 1/4 mi (app) to all the hubub of Shops and restaurants on the Parkway. Also the Trolley comes by on a regular basis, and it can transport you to all major attractions, such as the Aquarium! I highly recommend this Hotel to anyone who wants great value, and good service! I shopped on line and got a deal of basically 81.00 (plus tax) When you want exquisite Mountain Getaway in a Resort like atmosphere, yo can do no better than Glenstone Lodge!
I prefer the Poolside rooms, but it can get a bit noisy at nite with all the kids playing in it!
