“Nice week of Vacation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I love the resort! The playground is really nice for kids. We did get a room on the top floor which was great except for the neighbors on both sides we were in a single between two doubles and two families traveling together so we could here all the noise from them and they keep the main door open so they could go between rooms and their door open also which made the noise that much louder. The resort is really nice and the people working there are really friendly. The food at the Westgate Smokehouse Grill is Amazing!

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level if you don't mind climbing alot of stairs with a double if possible to...

I have visited the Westgate for 10 years now. It is always clean, staff is excellent and it exceeds any hotel you could stay in. By far the best place to stay! I have also visited the Westgate Lakes in Orlando. Very sweet! These resorts are as nice as they come. Very family friendly and continually inquiring what the owners would like to see in Westgate. I always know that I will be greatly satisfied when I stay with Westgate.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin higher up in the mountain. They are newer and the view is spectacular!

We stayed at westgate the first week in November. This was an exchange thru interval international. We were in the 3000 building and the view was awesome. Check in was fairly quick. There was a line, but it moved quickly. We were escourted to our room by a very enthusiastic guy who I believe was named Jason. He spent 10-15 minutes giving us a rundown on the resort and throwing hints to do the timeshare presentation. He said that he would get in touch with us the following day to see if we needed anything which he did not. However, this was fine with us. We did recieve one call in our room asking us to go to the presentation which we declined and was not bothered again. The room was beautiful, great kitchen, washer & dryer in room, jacuzzi tub and a balcony. The bed was very comfortable with a huge supply of soft pillows.

There are very few amenities unless you want to pay extra. There is no indoor pool or hot tub unless you want to pay $20.00 a day for the waterpark. Also with the waterpark even if you don't swim you still have to pay to go in and watch your kids. We did get board games from the front for free as long as they were returned with all pieces.

Very thin walls. I think someone nextdoor had a cold becasue we could hear them coughing all night.

There was two things that happened that we were not very happy about. We have an 8 year old and a 12 year old and we left them in the room for like 20 minutes while we went down to the convieniece store to get some drinks and while we gone someone came into our room with a key and said they were there to check the fire alarms.
That same night at 1:00 in the morning the fire alarms went off and scared us all to death lol. Everyone had to evacuate the building and we had to wait outside in our cars for over an hour. During this time not one resort employee came to say what was going on. I understand that things happen and wasn't really upset about the alarm, but I just felt like someone should have at least came and apoligized and told us what was going on. I was very uneasy for the rest of the night and none of us got much sleep. We never heard anything about that after the fact either.

Overall it was a nice place. We probally wouldn't stay again for the simple reason that we are on a really tight budget and would stay somewhere with a pool that doesn't cost $20.00 a day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the top of the mountain and not a first floor room.

We stayed in the 3000 building. Waterpark is great for younger kids. Activities for kids are interesting and lots of board-games to choose from. We have owned in this resort since 2004 and have upgraded each time. Restaurant choices could be better. Service is great!

Room Tip: Views are great from any room!

My wife and I visited the first week of November as first time owners, second trip to this resort though. The area is gorgeous and the resort quite pleasant. The room was clean and beautiful, and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Had a top floor single bedroom unit and never heard any of my neighbors. The resort has plenty of amenities for whatever you are in the mood for.We took advantage of the spa and water park. Love the water park as I burn easily in outdoor water parks and usually can't go. Not busy at all in the off season either. The resort is also a great launch point for the surrounding area. Pigeon Forge has lots of attractions to entertain all week.

Had a great time. It was our first time in the Gatlinburg area and it was fantastic. The cabin was more than we expected and will be telling our friends about our great vacation at Westgate. Also went on the Photo-Fast tour and it was the best, would suggest this tour to everyone. Already talking about coming back again sometime soon.

We traded into this timeshare through RCI/II. It is in a beautiful setting on the side of a mountain. The outward appearance is attractive. No Free Internet! If you don"t own you have to pay for everything. The rooms are big, don't get a bottom level room if you can help it. Our washer/dryer was outside our room. Any noise or footstep upstairs is loud and annoying. If you get talked into going through the "90 minute" timeshare presentation or update, plan on 3 hours and a pressure attempt.
