After driving around for a little while, looking for a place to stay after leaving super eight because of a yapping dog. We decided to stay here. The reason why I chose this place it's because it had two separate living spaces. The staff was very nice to us and accommodating. They have an indoor pool which is not very... More

We had food left in the fridge from the previous guest, bugs and cobwebs all over the room and balcony. The is a Dropbox/pickup box for your keys when the office isn't opened, so anyone can get your keys before or after you leave. I felt dirty after I left this place.

Motel is a little older but the room was very very clean and the furniture has been recently updated. The beds were excellent. Our price was a lot less than the national chains. The staff and manager were extremely accomadating. We were only minutes from Dollywood and a short drive to Gatlinburg. We will definitely stay here again.

I go to the mountains every year and this was by far the worst stay I have ever had. I paid for two rooms and when I arrived at the motel, it looked like a run down place, but I gave it a shot. Both toilets where broken, which one got fixed but the other one did not so we... More

I booked this hotel and when we arrived it was not what you would call nice. We put our things in the room and immediately left to get some lunch. My husband and I talked about it... More

If you are looking for a high class hotel, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a friendly, quaint, chilled atmosphere, come here. I reserved a room, King size with fireplace and Spa, through booking.com for a weekend getaway with my husband. When we got to the hotel, me reservation could not be found. The desk... More
