After going over and over in my mind where to stay we chose to stat at the HIE in Alcoa, due to being close to the airport, and to Gatlinburg. Upon our arrival to the hotel we got lost and had to call for directions. The young lady (Tiffany) who answered the phone gave us in-depth directions down to how many lights to go through to make it to the hotel. After driving for 7 hours and making it she greeted us with a great smile and a wonderful attitude. We've stayed at many of hotels and if they all could have one of her they would be great also. She told us about the hotel and all of the ammenities they had to offer including the great breakfast(cinnamon rolls). The little lady that was doing breakfast was very polite aswell. The housekeeping staff did a great job cleaning our rm on a daily basis. Speaking of rooms, this hotel has great beds and a choice of pillows to sleep on. Apon check-out the gentleman that was at the desk was also very nice. The staff definetly has great southern hospitality. And they made us feel like we were apart of their family from the time the reservation was made until we left the building. We would stay here again in the future and would recommend everyone to give this hotel a shot when traveling through or near Gatlingburg.
