“Find Another Hotel.”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

I don't know how this hotel got 3 stars, but I think the owner had their own good reviews posted to make it that way. We stayed here during NASCAR weekend and they double the price and it was not worth $84.00 a night. She asked if we wanted "River View". When we got there the only view we had was of a ditch full of weeds. They have 3 Floors, but no elevator. When we got to the 3rd floor it didn't have a refridgerator so she moved us to the first floor. The towel were rough, the bathroom had water bugs and the shower curtain had mold on it, and the card key wouldn't work most of the time. Thank goodness the weather was cool, because the AC didn't blow out that much cool air. Oh and to top it off, they have 1 ice machine on the 2nd floor and when I walked down the stairs to get ice there was a sign that said "ICE IN FRONT OFFICE". If all the hotels were not booked up because of NASCAR weekend, we would have stayed somewhere else for sure.

This is hands down the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The 2 lamps mounted to the wall were hanging off the wall, another lamp was missing a light bulb, and another floor lamp had a burnt shade that would not stay straight. The sheets were stained, the comforter was stained, the carpet was frayed along the walls, the toilet paper holder was missing, and the air conditioner didnt work. We had paid in advance for a week so we washed our own sheets upon checkin however when time came for our weekly cleaning and I requested new sheets, the beds were never touched. The parking lot had so much trash in it that there was even an old 3 ft long snake skin that didnt move our entire stay.
When we complained to the front desk we were offered a new room, which was just as bad. When we complained to Days Inn corporate office we were told we would get a call from the hotel manager, who called 2 weeks later to procede to tell us that we never should have reported this hotel and it was our fault for not demanding a better room. We were offered a free night, not that I would ever come within sight distance of this place again!

We rented 3 rooms in this hotel and were given them close together which was helpful. This is an average Days Inn with an average breakfast. ( I have had some with only packaged pastry and kool aid to others with hot waffles and eggs). The breakfast room was very small and served poor coffee and tea, oatmeal, pastries, 2 kinds of cereal and toast. Adequate. Rooms were very clean. No frills or pool. Gatlinburg is 30 min away. Close to the interstate, but very quiet and restful. Very nice staff. Facilities getting dated, but clean and safe.

Needed a spot for an overnight while on a roadtrip. This place was clean, friendly, close to food and shopping, and good value. I'll stay here again if I'm ever back this way.

Stayed here on Saturday night. Melody was working the front desk-very friendly and helpful. This was a great hotel for the same price as the bug motel (motel 6) across the highway. I asked Melody several times about things to do in the area and she was great.
Very clean room and it is pretty big. would stay here again for sure. Even had breakfast items in the lobby in the morning.

This motel was recommended by a friend. Arrived on a cold late night with family & were quickly checked into room which was already warm. Were provided extra towels by desk clerk which was very thoughtful. Price was cheaper than other motels. Rooms very clean.Had a very good rest after a long tiresome journey. On request, breakfast time was extended to accomodate us. Decent continental breakfast. Staff was awesome. Try it . You wont repent. And plenty of restaurants nearby.

After seven months of staying here, I have to say I am satisfied, Yes there are a few things that could be better, but that is all motels. The owner has been more than helpful and always prompt and friendly. I can't say it was perfect, but I have to say I have been treated very well. For the price, and the location, it is hard to go wrong here.
