“Weekend trip for 2”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I took girlfriend for a weekend getaway to Gatlinburg this past weekend. For what we paid for we got a very clean room, nice comfy bed and friendly associates. The people here are extremely nice and helpful. They gave us recommendations to where to go. Location is within walking distance to the the downtown strip. Will definitely stay here again. This is a very simple hotel if you just want the basics and clean place to stay this is it. Me and my girlfriend enjoyed it very much.

For a simple overnight trip to Gatlinburg on a budget, the Belle Aire is all you need. It was extremely clean, the king bed was comfortable, the wi-fi worked and the location was perfect. This was a real surprise given that the price is so low. I have absolutely no complaints.

This hotel is also an Econo Lodge now (no reviews with the new name @ tripadvisor). Its within walking distance to Gatlinburg downtown. The room/bath was very clean and the staff was courteous. We had a minor plumbing issue and it was resolved within minutes. 2 concerns - It has a check in deadline and so call in advance if you are arriving late, and the breakfast service was bad. Staff was slow in replacing the finished items. I'd stay this place is value for money. I'd stay here again in future and highly recommend it if you are budget conscious.

We needed a room with 2 beds since our daughter was travelling with us. The first room only had 1 bed, so they were able to move us upstairs to what I believe was the biggest room in the hotel. It was definitely an older property, but clean, and had been modernized. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was modern. It was close to everything, we walked to the log cabin pancake house and shopping. Beautiful view and friendly staff. There was coffee, juice and muffins and english muffins in the lobby in the morning. We stayed here based on the rating from other Trip Advisor travellers and I was not disappointed.

Room Tip: If you call Reagan property directly ask for Belle Aire, do NOT get stuck in the reagan resorts!!!!!

My family really enjoyed our stay at the Belle Aire in Gatlinburg. Our rooms were well appointed, clean, fresh linens, flat screen tv, We had two rooms together and one had a great view of the mountain and sky lift and the other had a cute little balcony to sit out on. The location was great, so close to everything, everything within walking distance, even a little Catholic church just a block away, and wonderful breakfast right next door at the Log Cabin Pancake house. Just a three minute drive to the Smoky Mountain National Park. For the price, we could not have chosen better quality, comfort and convenience. The bathrooms looked freshly remodeled and very clean, loved all the beautiful wood doors and comfy beds. I would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends with budget and comfort in mind!

Room Tip: The second story rooms are up stairs, but are roomy and have a beautiful view of the mountain and sk...

Belle Aire is in a great location with short trip to resturants and shops.Dozens of food places are at the foot of the hill, a nice walk.The Convention Center and wedding chapels are near by. It has a great view of the sky lift and the mountains. Our room was clean and comfortable. The air conditoner was on so the room was very comfortable. The pool was a good way to cool off after a walk on the town. I booked my room online and got a wonderful rate for 2 nights. Although they do have wi fi it didn't work at night most of the night and early morning.The only other complaint I have was the maids were cleaning the rooms and were yelling at each other. I booked my room online and got a wonderful rate for 2 nights. We had a wonderful experience at Bell Aire and would reccomend it to anyone who wants a room for a decent price.

Thanks to Katrina Ownby for saving our weekend. Because of a snafu with Priceline and another hotel we arrived to find that the we did not have a room and because they overbooked for Memorial Day Weekend and were going to have to drive back home.
As we were leaving we pulled in here to inquire about a room and was told that they were booked but may have another room at one of their other properties. After telling her my story about the other place, she took the time to find us a room and go ahead and have it held till we could get there, because the rooms were absolutely selling out this weekend as fast as you could pull into the hotel. :( .. But she made me feel better about what happened and took care of us and saved our week-end... THANKS KATRINA!!!! This hotel absolutely has THE Best Front Desk Staff!!!!!
