“Avoid like the plague!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Very dated, musty smelling. Killed two roaches. One tiny (seriously tiny) trash can, that was never emptied during our 4 night stay (daily cleaning is listed as part of the amenities). There is not a front desk to call for anything. Wifi only worked sporadically. Property backs up to a seriously scary neighborhood. You have A LOT of places to choose from, I highly recommend trying one place else.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel!

What a bargain, right off the strip and cute as a bugs ear! Our favorite room has a fireplace (well, simulated, but it puts out plenty of light and heat!) a jacuzzi and a huge comfy bed. The room is spacious and nice with beautiful wood everywhere. We have stayed here quite a few times before and love it every time. A three minute walk beside the bubbling Baskin's Creek takes you right into town across from the Aquarium! But rather than be in the middle of everything, the hotel is tucked away under a hill in the quiet. I cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: Jacuzzi rooms are larger, the ones without are smaller but still nice and have real fireplaces.

We stayed here for our anniversary and it was fun and cheesy, with our room having an extra large, red, heart shaped, jacuzzi tub. It is a little older, and some of the bathroom wallpaper was peeling and had some stains, but overall it was clean and comfy. It is a convenient location, and is a short walk (probably 8-10 minutes, if you walk slowly) to get to all the shops and restaurants. We would consider staying here again, it was the best price we found for what you get.

This was our 4th time staying at The Nestle Inn....our rooms are always clean and it is a very nice place to stay. The location is great, but off of the main strip so you don't have to worry about it being noisey. We have stayed in rooms m111, m112 and m108...all of these rooms were very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful if we needed them, we loved the new key coded doors...didn't have to worry about having keys with us:) The small kitchens that were added to the room were great to have, helped save some money on eating out. I would recommend this little inn to anyone wanting a good clean place to stay with great rates!!

Room Tip: we like the rooms that start with the m....they seem more private and we love the fireplaces:)

My daughter and I stayed at Baskins Creek Nestle Inn--M206. Actually this is a Honeymoon suite, but it had all amenities that we were looking for---jucuzzi,fireplace and porch with a swing. It is close to the main strip in Gatlinburg- within walking distance to catch trolleys or shopping. We went in mid October so the weather was nice with a bit of chill in the air. The leaves were turning and it was a painter's palette with all the beautiful colors that we were able to observe. It was quite and the office was helpful in giving us directions to different places to eat and shop. It is just minutes from Pigeon Forge or the parkway in the mountains. We will use Nestle Inn again. My daughter has been sick for several months and this was getaway for a change in scenery.

Room Tip: There are a few steps to climb since this unit is on 2nd floor. I noticed that it is an older buildi...

I stayed next to the Nestle Inn, in Cottage 101. The cottage itself was just fine, the inside was decorated nicely and clean. We knew we were renting an older cabin, and thought that the inside of the cabin was very nice. The location was also nice, and we walked everywhere we went.

When we first arrived (which was 1 in the morning due to our long drive), there were 3 people sitting around a fire, very intoxicated and yelling at each other across the creek, which was right outside our window and door. We were too tired to really do anything about it and just went to sleep despite the noise.

The second night, we wanted to enjoy the hot tub, which was a must on our search for cabins, and we were really excited to find that this cottage had one. We took the cover off and got in, only to notice a VERY dangerous looking situation. There is an old control box on the far corner of the hot tub that water goes in when you move in the hot tub. There are cracked pieces of plastic, and wires sticking out. We were too scared to even sit in the hot tub, since we had no idea if these were live wires. Dissapointed, we decided to sit in the swing for a while instead. Which is exactly when the three intoxicated people from the night before came outside and started YELLING at the top of their lungs at each other, threatening to hurt one another, and then we heard what sounded like a fist fight... so we didn't even feel safe on the swing, and went inside. For these reasons, we were dissapointed, and won't be staying there or recommending this to anyone.

I discovered The Nestle Inn a couple of years ago when I was planning a quiet trip to Gatlinburg on the way home from Nashville for work. I stayed in M105 and wasn't disappointed. The price was great so when hubby and I planned our trip I checked and the prices couldn't be beat for a honeymoon suite. We stayed in M104 and was very pleased. Hubby didn't know what to expect because of the price and he was very happy. The room gives you a cabin type feel. I loved getting in the hot tub in the room each night. We couldn't hear a peep out of any of the other guests. The bed was made and fresh towels were there each evening when we arrived back. The bed was comfortable and we loved the flat screen and electric fire place. Can't beat it for the price for sure!
