“pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

motel was great for the price, located fairly close to the main drag in Gatlinburg, TN. Room was nice and clean with plenty of room for us and our poodle. Tippy. From the outside, we were kind of weary about staying there. But everything went well, no one bothered us. Very busy during the weekend, with no loud partying or comings or goings to bother us. Staff very friendly and helpful. Even gave us discounts on some of the attractions in the city, that helped out alot. Also, upgraded us to king size bed, so we wouldn't have to walk around back, just to save us some steps.

Room Tip: no continental breakfast, and no fitness center available. Continental breakfast would have been nic...

When we walked into the room it had a funky smell. There were bugs in the bathroom and ants in the room. Some of the lights didn't work the toilet wasn't even cleaned from the last people. This place is outdated no remote to the tv pillows are old. The coffee in the morning taste like water. I would never stay here again.

I booked on Priceline based on price mostly. It was pretty much as advertised and it was clean although it is not in the best part of town we still felt secure. While it is an older hotel it is not a "sleaze" joint. You can walk to downtown if you like although it is a little longer of a walk due to being at one end of the town.

This place was fantastic! I have been traveling to Gatlingburg for 20 years and this place beats any comparable hotel I have stayed in. Jessica at the desk was very friendly and helpful by offering me room type options at check in. I chose a jacuzzi suite on the stream side of the hotel not expecting too much as it is an older hotel. Boy was I surprised:) I am not sure if all of the rooms there are as nice as ours was but my mine was fabulous. It was clean, comfortable, & quiet. Not only was the room great but this hotel's location is great too. It is close enough to walk to the strip but far enough away from all of the hustle and bustle. We didn't even go to any trailheads on this trip because we could take the pet walking trail behind the hotel down to the river and play around. We were only in for one night this trip so I did not get a chance to use the pool. But I did check it out for future trips and can confirm it is well maintained. Overall this place had all I needed and more than I expected for the price. We will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for streamside

We chose this room for vacation because of price and brand reputation. We expected a small, clean room and a small pool. What we got was a large recently renovated room . The room was spotless and housekeeping kept it that way during our entire stay. The pool was larger than expected and very well kept.

On our third night, the air conditioner quit working at about 9:00 PM. We called the front desk and a maintenance man was there within ten minutes. By 10:30 PM we had a new unit installed. You can't get better service than that.

The girls at the front desk were friendly and helpful. We asked for extra towels to use at the pool and they were provided free of charge. There was always hot coffee available in the lobby.

All in all, this was just a very good place to stay and I look forward to staying there again.

I chose this hotel because it was pet friendly and for the amenities advertised via their website. The next day we found out that it did not have a complimentary breakfast (which it advertised). We had booked a room for six days and also wanted on-site laundry (which it advertised) and found out that we would have to drive to the nearest laundry mat. They offered free Wi-Fi which worked fine for the first two days, the remaining four days of our stay, we were unable to get on-line. It was quiet and since our room was in the back, it was nice to be near the creek. It was easy walking distance to the main street with lots of restaurants and shops. If we ever go back to Gatlinburg, we will definitely stay somewhere else since there are lots of other places to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room in the back overlooking the creek.

We chose this hotel because it was pet friendly, I loved the walk into the woods for the dogs, much better than well used little grassy areas we usually find!
The girl on the desk was very friendly & helpful at guiding us to good restaurants.
The room was spotlessly & very inexpensive for a jacuzzi room, which was also spotless with 2 big soft towels on the edge.
The bed was comfortable & there was plenty of nice soft pillows.
We also liked the location of the hotel being off the main road & quiet, but easy walking distance to the main st, restaurants, shops etc.
