“Nice view, good location, decent price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

The hotel was average, but most of the hotels in Gatlinburg are. It is an older hotel and needs some upkeep. The bathrooms are a bit small. With that said, it was a decent value, the view was beautiful, and the location was good. For a weekend trip it was just right.

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The lighting was very dim especially in the bathroom area - hard for the wife to put on her make-up. Wifi was okay but not great. Towels were scratchy. Breakfast was just okay. It was close to the aquarium and Hard Rock Cafe which has great nachos. Overall, it is somewhat pricey but good for location. My wife left an item in the room and her sister still in town was able to retrive it on our behalf.

We had a wonderful 2 day stay at the Kings Inn in Charleston. The staff was outstanding! Shalee at the desk and Taylor in the dining room were so friendly and kind! Our room was perfect, We will come back! It is more expensive than most Best Westerns, but I am sure it is because it is within walking distance of everything. You pay more for that convenience.

Staff very friendly and helpful; however with close proximity to water expect rodents. Prior to taking bags to room, my recent stay serves as a reminder to check room thoroughly prior. Previous guest left underwear and socks scattered throughout room and room was stated as being 'clean' and ready for next guest. Best shower pressure anywhere! NOT recommended for business as internet service NOT reliable

Usually we stay in a cabin, but for short weekend trip decided to stay in town. Great location, staff was friendly, rooms were clean. Cannot comment on breakfast as we always eat at pancake pantry! Loved hearing the river and the beds were so comfortable! Great stay!!

Leave it to Beaver was playing on the TV in the breakfast room. If you would like to stay in a 50's era place with little updating or repair this is the place for you. Needs extensive repair and updating. In addition the TV and door lock worked poorly. Overall when you walk in the room you want to walk out.

Clean rooms, super comfortable beds, friendly staff. Room was across from the play area but never heard any noise from the children playing. Ice machine was always working and had plenty of ice. Will use this Best Western again.
