“Great Value, Great Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The Bed was so comfy!!! The first day we didn't have them clean the room bc we were tired and slept in. Well we forgot to take the sign off the door, and when we got back from exploring, we found the maid had left clean towels and toiletries in a bag outside the door!!! That's service!!! We've stayed other places and never have gotten that!!! Continental breakfast is good. LOVED the private balcony over the river, we could not hear the traffic because of the river! Overall a great stay!!!!

Hotel was gross, we checked in around 3 and the slop from the morning breakfast was still out and dripped all over. Bed was worse, I have never slept on a worse mattress, and had a severe backache the rest of the trip. Ducks swimming in the pool! Gross hot tub badly needs an update! Sorry to say i have lost my faith in Days Inn
The river was pretty but surroundings weren't

This property was not well kept. The bathroom wall and ceiling had watter damage and mold. the balcony was full of cobwebs and dirty. the light switch in bathroom was very grimy. The pool locked cloudy. There were 3-4 stains on the sofa. A little further from activities in town than I would have preferred.

We stayed 2 nights and It was great! Great location. We loved sitting on the balcony and listening to the water. There was a few things that needed updated but nothing major. We will stay at this motel every time we're in Gatlinburg.

This dump at $76 for a 1-night stay was awful, moldy carpet at the sink area, torn lampshades, stains on the couch and chair, mirror de-silvering, a/c condensation line drips onto the balcony floor which runs across the balcony and then drips off -- it's moldy and nasty where this line of water has been running, lampshades torn or don't fit, stained ceiling tiles in bathroom, bathroom vent fan unit's plastic casing cracked and broken, no stopper in the sink. And it smells like mildew! Geez! If you're going to be in business, fix this stuff! Replace the carpet! Location is on north end of the strip near all the closed-down businesses, not down in the heart of the town where businesses on the strip are thriving!

Room Tip: My tip would be to get a room somewhere else.
