“Loved our stay at the Gillette!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

We spent new years eve, 2011 in gatlinburg at the Gillette, and wow. I have never had better service, the staff at Gillette goes above and beyond great service. The motel is a little older and rooms may not be as modern, but the service those people gives you is incredible. We loved it so much we went ahead and booked our rooms for next year. Gillette has made a customer for life out of me and my family! thanks for the great weekend Gillette!

You start with a plastic key holder and actual metal key to unlock your door...but trust me when I say you will like this place. The room was spotlessly clean, even white bedspreads, white towels, tile bathroom floor, and the carpet. Every items was in perfect working order including the TV, heat/air, hair dryer, small refrigerator, and microwave. The Gillette is located right across from the Gatlinburg Convention Center so we could walk to all the shops and food easily. Be sure to checkout the old paintings in the lobby of the Gillette's humble beginnings--very interesting.

Room Tip: Adjoining rooms were great for in-laws and grandkids

The Gillette Motel has been our choice for the past 10 or more years. We attend wholesale shows for our business and not only is the location the best so is the overall accomodations. The rooms are always clean and the houskeeping staff is top notch and so friendly. Thanks again Gillette for another great stay will call u soon to book again.

We were in town for a dance competition and it could not have been a better place to stay. So very convenient - close to all major attractions and restaurants. The room was spotless and the housekeeping staff was friendly and accomodating. The front desk staff was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. The rooms are a great size for a family or just the two of us with dance costumes and all that comes with them. Wonderful, wonderful stay! Would not hesitate to stay again.

We stayed the first weekend of Dec. 2010. We were there for the cheerleading competition at the convention center. Our room was very clean, very friendly at the front desk and quite surprised it was also very quiet. For the money you can't beat it. If you want luxury this place is not for you. We were very pleased with our stay.

This place saved our trip last April when we had to move out of another hotel down the road. We were able to get a nice suite with a balcony and had a pleasant stay! Husband was there for the bridge tournament and we will stay at this place again next year! It is a older no frills kind of place in a great location across from convention center!

Our motorcycle group stayed here for 5 nights in late June. The hotel staff was very courteous and made certain accomodations for our group. The rate was very fair, the rooms clean, and the cleaning staff did a great job. The hotel is well located about 2 blocks from the main street, where there are plenty of restaurants and activities. The hotel itself is far enough away from the crowds to be quiet.

This is an older hotel, family-owned, but well kept and worth the stay. The only complaint we had was the beds, which were very hard.
