“Our Gatlinburg Favorite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

My family has been staying at Zoders for several decades now. We love our private balcony on the relaxing creek. Location is perfect because you are within walking distance from the strip but far enough away to escape the noise while relaxing at the pool. Some updates are needed but hotel remains CLEAN, safe, and friendly!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Stayed there last weekend and had such a great stay. The room was wonderful, clean, neat and quiet. Bathroom was clean modern and plenty of hot water..never ran out! The river and view out the balcony door was stunning. Very restful. two pools indoor and out very well kept and clean. The snack bar and breakfast were very nice. One of the best motels we have ever stayed at. The only thing that could've made it better would be the addition of a microwave...sadly missing. We will definitely stay there again, maybe for a fall color tour.

Room Tip: most all rooms face the river..but do request one to be sure. Well worth the effort.

Stayed June 15 in their suite. It was awesome and so pretty inside with fireplace, etc.. Pool was just outside our suite which was sitting deep between some rocky hills with trees and beautiful running creek with rocks, ducks and wildlife. Everytime we have stayed we have had a different beautiful view. Hospitality is great there with free wine and cheese in the evening and nice breakfast selections in the morning. They even offer free cookies and milk at bedtime. We just love the place. Close to everything, so you just talke off walking to downtown Gatlinburg when you like.

The unassuming road frontage does no justice to this great hotel. My wife and I rented a cabin and had a little trouble getting the fire going without getting smoke in the room. Maintenance came by and showed us what we needed to do and made sure we had enough wood to last the night. We were able to leave our window open and hear only the sound of the creek to put us to sleep. No cars, people... Nothing. Just a great night's sleep.

We rented a suite in the towers. It overlooked a small stream that drowned any background noise. Inside and outside pools---the grandkids were in heaven. Close to most attractions in Gatlinburg hence not much driving. Free wine and cheese at night (happy adults), free milk and cookies in the evening (happy grandkids). The people were accommodating and friendly. Even though the place was a little old, all conveniences were updated and nice. The extra bed in the living room gave us even more flexibility. We had a great stay.

I cant say enough about what a great place this is....Wendy (front desk) was a Godsend. Nothing can beat listening to the creek outside your back door except for how friendly every employee was...Thanks guys for helping us have the best vacation ever....The room was super clean, the inside pool with the waterfall was refreshing and to beat it all they serve you wine, cheese, milk and cookies....

Fellow travelers. I highly recommend this hotel when staying in Gatlinburg TN. It was a perfect location and the staff was very helpful. The room was clean and bigger than we expected. The pictures just doesn't do this hotel justice. Listening to the river at night was so peaceful and relaxing.
