Off to the right, just when you've really hit the main strip of Gatlinburg. The convenience of Best Western Twin Islands was a bonus. You don't have to be stuck in the bumper-to-bumper traffic for very long before you can just park, check in, and head out on foot. Avoiding a lot of cumbersome navigation is always a plus, since the town is so much more foot-friendly than car-friendly. Our room wasn't lavish by any means, but it didn't have the dreaded "cheap motel" feel either. Nicely decorated, warm, cozy and clean. We had a double room, and there were four of us, which was a little cramped, though not impossibly so. The bathroom shower and toilet were jammed together, in a tiny amount of space, but it wasn't a great hardship or anything. They utilized what space there was pretty well. The mini-fridge, microwave, television, and coffee pot were located in a large entertainment center, complete with drawers and a fold-out ironing board. There was an added peacefulness in hearing the sounds of the stream/river as you drifted off to sleep, and we enjoyed stepping out on the balcony to look at it during the day, as well as the lights on the strip at night. They are not private balconies, however. Just long balconies that all the rooms lead out to, with a few plastic chairs allocated per room. So don't expect a lot of privacy. If you're after something reasonably priced, that gives you just a bit of mountain feel in the few hours that you crash after a jam-packed day on the go, then I think this may be a good choice for you . . . all things considered, not half-bad.
