“Spend the night, not a fortune”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

While visiting a convention in Gatlinburg, I was staying at one of the higher priced national chains down the road. I looked into the Royal House because it was across the street and nearly half the price.

The room was clean and no frills.

It didn't come with shampoo, but everything else was good.

I stayed on the top floor because it is my belief they are quieter.

Free parking for guests. Good location. If you are trying to manage a budget, I would stay here.

This is my choice pick when staying in Gatlinburg. It is right on the strip. It's an easy walk either way to Ober Gatlinburg or to the other end of town to the Aquarium. The rooftop pool is awesome with great views. Front desk staff are always nice and friendly. The air was set on 68 when we walked in the door which was nice on a hot summer day and we didn't have to wait for the room to cool down. The loud motorcycles were a little annoying when they were leaving in the morning but that can't be helped. This place is way cheaper than other motels in Gatlinburg. Don't waste your money on one of those big fancy hotels when you are only there to sleep. Save your room money and stay here. It's worth it.

The room as always was clean. The carpet looked new and the linens were fresh. This hotel is not updated or new, but always clean and staff friendly. Great location and staff. Worth the money. The rooftop pool is always great just to sit at or enjoy a dip. The parking is alittle tricky, but once again, worth the trip.

I visited on a weekend in the summer & the rates were over $30 cheaper than other hotels I looked at. Not to mention the other hotels were not even right on the main strip. The room was big, had a refrigerator, & a fireplace. They are outdated I admit, but comfortable & clean. I loved the rooftop pool, especially just sitting on the balcony watching people. This motel is perfect for those on a budget who want great location in downtown Gatlinburg. Walking distance to lots of shops, restaurants, & many attractions.

This hotel is in the heart of it all in downtown Gatlinburg...We found a coupon in one of the many coupon books scattered across this town that offered a buy one night, get one night FREE. We checked in with no issues and they honored the coupon!! The place was clean, the staff was very friendly, and the rooftop pool was awesome :) However, it is old and not the fanciest...but for the price and the coupon, it was a no brainer for us!! I would recommend this hotel/motel to the budget conscious looking for an average stay!!

It's a great mom and pop feel.. Friendly staff.. Love the roof top pool. Perfect spot on the strip . Not the HILTON but not paying that price either. We have been going several times a year since we found it..

My wife and I have stayed at the Royal Townhouse in Gatlinburg for years now.The hotel is older as is alot of hotels around gatlinburg,but the hotel is very well kept and clean.The staff is one of a kind and very accomodating,they are there with any issue that anyone has,and will do anything they can to make sure your stay is enjoyable.The rooms are outdated as is the tv's,the carpet was replaced a couple years ago but the rest was left the same.The beds are comfortable and everything is kept clean,there is daily daily maid service,coffee makers and microwaves and ref in most rooms.There is a rooftop pool for the kids as is a rooftop deck for sitting and looking down on the street,it has a very good location on the strip and close to all buisnesses.It has covered parking for the cars,and the price is under all of any hotels in gatlinburg especially in the off season.Over all clean and a great staff I will give it a number one rating,but like a lot it is not a Hampton,so if you are looking for clean at a good price its hard to beat.Make sure you pickup a Tennessee hotel coupon book at a Tennessee rest area or Truck stop to geat the best deal.

Room Tip: The king suites are the best rooms,ask for a room with the view of Mt.Leconte.
