I've stayed at this hotel a few times since they have opened. It's clean, so that's my main issue with hotels. The location is perfect because it is literally only about a quarter of a mile from the actual Smoky Mountain Park entrance, and walking distance from all the shops and restaurants as well. The hotel is on the river, so if you pay a little extra you can have a room with a balcony that looks over the river. It's really nice to have the sound of the river flowing outside your room. There is a free continental breakfast (bagels, cereal, oatmeal, waffles, biscuits/gravy, fruit, muffins etc.) which is always nice when you're on vacation, since you have to spend so much money on eating out typically. The beds are comfy, the room is up to date and modernized, and the price is perfect! Even in the in season, the prices aren't terrible. There is a pool outside, no on site restaurant, no fitness center, no indoor pool, nice little lobby with a fireplace, plenty of parking (which you don't have to pay extra for), and overall just a nice stay. The staff was friendly as well :) I wouldn't even look elsewhere when staying in Gatlinburg. It really is a great place to stay.
