Pros: Excellent value, spotless, location, location, location, nostalgic. Be prepared for a step back in time; when room keys are just that, a key; when room doors could be left open to allow fresh mountain air in all night if you wished because there's also a little latch lock on the screen door (there's also a window in the bathroom so open it and the front door to really get your room mountain fresh!); wooden paneled walls & working double wooden paned windows give you a true cabin feel, quilts adorn the beds and coffee is always fresh and available in the office. Top it all off with a babbling creek and short 2 minute walk to the Village for fresh baked donuts & coffee for your morning fare. Trolley stops directly in front of the motel. Extremely close to the strip (3min walk tops,). Our teenage daughter loved the fact that we werent surrounded by loud obnoxious guests, but rather older folks who appreciated the peace and quite this place provided. She said "you know its a good place to stay when sweet old folks stay there" and she couldnt be farther from the truth!! This is a no frills, no bells, no whistles and no wallet busting place to stay & play in Gatlinburg!
Cons: unless you're looking for bells & whistles, there are no cons.
Amenities not to expect: no complimentary toiletries, no WiFi, no ironing board, no blow dryer, no breakfast, no website with more info (they still do pencil & paper bookeeping:) no 24 hr desk help or concierge.
Theres no online reservation! Call early, as far in advance as possible, as this quaint 19 room gem fills up fast!!
