Just happened to walk off the strip in gatlinburg and my wife found this hotel. The rates are great for gatlinburg and we were pleasantly surprised at the room. The room was clean and there were just some really thoughtful things about the place. You can tell that the owners care about the business and it showed. The husband was... More

We booked 3 nights here to visit GSM park and I was initially worried about some of the reviews. Writers had commented that the place was old and the showers and beds were bad. We had a great bed and shower and the hotel had a kitschy retro feel that didn't feel "old", it was really cool. Everything is super... More

We turned at traffic light #8 and came upon this gem! The hotel is older, but it it extremely clean! The staff was very friendly. Rooms included a flat screen tv, small fridge, coffee maker and a microwave. The bed was very comfortable. You can walk to the strip in just a few minutes. Would definitely stay again!

We love staying at the Gillette Motel. It's centrally located to anything you would want to do in Downtown Gatlinburg. We have stayed here numerous times. It is an older Motel but it is a CLEAN and well managed motel. We like the suite with the kitchen in it best of all. I have stayed in the regular rooms lots... More

Stayed in this motel with a small school group. The staff here were very accommodating to our requests. We were centrally located to the convention center and everywhere we needed to go for the week. The only issue that I had was the shower head. I am 6'2" and felt like I had to bend double to rinse my hair.... More

The room was small and extremely dated. The bed was much too firm for me and the pillows were flat and useless. It was clean. The walls are very thin and noise was a big issue. Didn't rest well. The location is nice and it's a short pleasant walk to town. There was plenty of hot water. Tv worked good.... More

My family went for a few days at New year's and it was a pretty good room walls we're pretty then,but the location is really good right off the main strip. Would stay here again. Also parking was great,because once your there we didn't have to drive anywhere in Gatlinburg because you can walk all the way to the aquarium... More

We stayed at a different hotel in town on our first night and walked by this hotel and thought it might be a good hotel for our 2nd night. The room was very clean. The walkways outside of the room were also very clean. The room is a little outdated, but the cleanliness made up for that. This is also... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Gillette. The people at the front desk were very nice. Our room had a lot of room. Great location as it is walking distance to the strip. The motel is a bit outdated but VERY clean. Definitely will stay again!
