You will feel the mountain atmosphere would you stay here. The rooms are not the traditional 4 wall hotel rooms. This place has its own Mountain characteristics. It was so quiet and the mountain view is breathtaking.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our Chalet Inn. This property is more secluded than most hotels in Gatlinburg making it very peaceful, but yet close enough to walk to all the attractions and restaurants.

This hotel is old and badly in need of renovation, but we loved the character and spaciousness of our room. The view from our private balcony was spectacular. Check in and breakfast take place at the Econo Lodge down a steep hill. Every time we needed something we had to go down the hill because our 1950's phone was inoperable.... More

We stopped in Gatlinburg on our way back to Kentucky from Myrtle Beach. Dated hotel, but if you are looking for clean, spacious, affordable rooms this is the place to be. The rooms are VERY large. They don't build hotels that way anymore. No frills but clean, very large private balconies, and beautiful grounds. Out door pool was clean and... More

Be prepared for, although an overall nice experience, outdated decor/fixtures in the room - the hotel's front office staff was kind enough to upgrade us to a panoramic suite , free of charge, however, the beautiful, 2-story peaked windows were eclipsed by heavy curtains that were 30+ years old as far as decor, tracks broken in many places, which prevented...

We found the Chalet quaint and charming! Close enough to main strip and attractions for walking yet secluded enough to return throughout the day for rest, a swim in the lovely pool. The unexpected breakfast was a lovely surprise! The rates are so reasonable and the staff was most friendly and helpful with planning our stay. Can't wait to return!

This stay was for our 14th anniversary and we were pleased with the room but the a/c was too small, ceiling fan was to low, and shower layout was odd but area was quiet and close enough though to walk to the main streets where the action was.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Resting majestically above the town, Chalet Inn maintains the kind of rustic elegance once known to all great smoky mountain resorts. The Inn's landscaped surroundings, mountain stone architecture and charming character-filled rooms make you feel a world away. Yet, the attractions of Gatlinburg are just a few blocks away. The Inn is just two blocks from Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway, with Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies just 5 blocks away. ... more   less
