“Good value, Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2008

I was a little apprehensive after reading the drastically mixed reviews. I'm happy to say we had no problems during our stay. The standard room was pretty much like any other Days Inn. It was clean and basic. The small refrigerator and microwave were great for leftovers. We loved the balcony overlooking the river. The location at light #2 on the parkway was perfect, not too close to the noise, but close enough to walk anywhere you need to go. I'd rate the experience as slightly above average, taking into consideration the low price, river balcony, and location.

Never Again! Badly stained carpet; pool empty and cruddy; Ants in room; Black mold around the tub; Bathroom floor stained; Mattress un suportive - old, sagging; one bed with no blanket... requested one, no response!; Pillows thin, cheap; walkway and steps filthy - never cleaned; elevator stunk along with entrance foyer. I brought 31 people to the Days Inn for a retreat... many of them had to be moved 2 and 3 times to find a room that was OK.

I do have a picture of the mold around the tub area and the empty swimming pool... but the Motel cleaned the main hall carpet after I asked "When was the last time you changed the oil in the carpet? before I got a picture. We were 'over-charged' and am still awaiting a response from the corporate headquarters.

  • Liked — Absolutly Nothing!
  • Disliked — Run down... dirty... mold around tub... plumbing problems... stained carpet... Lot More!

It was July 4th weekend and my sister and I bit the bullet and chose this hotel because if was one of the few with a decent price and vacancy. We called the hotel directly and got a better deal than it was offered online and then another discount when we arrived for our AAA. The room was clean. Sheets were clean. The fridge came in handy and it was nice to sit on the little balcony and watch the creek. Its not 5 star but we felt safe and clean and that was very important to use. The breakfast was simple but good. We had cereal and bagels. The pool and whirlpool looked nice and some children seemed to be having fun out there. If simple, clean, and affordable is what you need. I definately reccomend this place.

  • Liked — Clean, affordable, breakfast, pool, walking distance and trolly access to attractions

Have just returned from a 4 day 3 night getaway to Gatlinburg, and have to say we had a great stay. This is not our first time to Gatlinburg, but was our first stay at the Days Inn Gatlinburg on the river. Very nice, newly remodeled rooms. Our room's carpeting had just been cleaned and was impressed with the cleanliness of the Inn. The staff that we came in to contact with was very helpfull and friendly. Inexpensive and worth the price we paid. It is a little walk to the downtown area, but we visit the town to walk the strip and all the shops anyway.

We stayed at the Glenstone Lodge in June of 2007. We absolutely loved it! The rooms were very clean and the staff was so courteous-talk about southern hospitality!! Everyone was attentive. The front desk helped us with directions to local attractions. We even got to meet the General Manager. She was very friendly and thanked us for staying there. I highly recommend this hotel. There are a lot of hotels in Gatlinburg but this one is first class!
