“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed October 15, 2007

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay from Oct 6 to Oct 11, 2007. Excellent location in walking distance to good restaurants and downtown area of Gatlinburg. Clean room and friendly staff.

We were there this past weekend. We had a low-level room, so were able to hear the creek while we sat on the balcony. The room was nice
with a fireplace and very clean. The staff was friendly. It is easily
within walking distance to the main part of town. The only negative was there was not a fridge in the room we had, but I would definitely
stay there again.

Driving through Gatlinburg, we saw so many cute,unique hotels; when we drove up to this one, it seemed plain and off the beaten path. The front desk clerk was not very friendly, but we were permitted to check-in early, which was a relief. Our 2-bed, nonsmoking room cost $90.25, plus tax. Parking was ample.

We walked into the room and were happily impressed. The beds were crisp, comfortable, clean (no bedspreads...yay!) with lots of pillows. There was a sparkling clean jacuzzi in the corner of the main room, with a vent above it to control moisture. The bathroom was located around a corner, with a very large clothing storage section, and the ample sink and counter were separate from the shower/toilet area, a BIG plus for me.

There was plenty of room for luggage, the internet connection was conveniently next to the desk. A pretty stone fireplace was located in the corner. The nicest feature was the balcony overlooking the river. Someone above us was feeding the ducks that gathered at the river's edge. Wish we'd had more time to enjoy it.

We could easily walk to the center of the tourist area and realized that being off the beaten path was a good thing, considering the exuberant crowds that prowled the streets until late night.

Check-out was easy, the free breakfast very good with a large variety of healthy and other foods. The housekeeping staff was helful and kind. We don't expect to be in the Gatlinburg area again, but if we are, this will definitely be our hotel of choice!

This is a great location. Walked easily to everything. We were only here overnight but really enjoyed the oversized room and the stack stone fireplace was pretty cool even tho it was summer. The balcony overlooking the running creek was a nice plus. Great value.

  • Liked — location
  • Disliked — didn't offer all that other Fairfield Inn's have in the past. Limited bkft seating and bkft foods

My husband and I stayed for one night on our anniversary. We were pleased. The hotel is extremely clean and new. The walk to downtown shopping is a little long but the trolley pulls directly into the parking lot. The pool was great and the putt-putt golf was the best putt putt course I've ever played. The exercise room was well equipped.

Very spacious room with a whirlpool that we enjoyed after all the walking we did! Loved the little balcony overlooking the creek and a door that we could leave open. Breakfast is the norm, pretty good coffee, not much seating. Impressed when they responded so quickly to a noisy HVAC. We love to walk and walked to everything. Park entrance is a couple of blocks away - two mile walk to the Visitor Center and another one mile loop trail. On the way back on River Road was a wonderful pancake house with the best omlettes we every ate. Also enjoyed Park Grill and Calhouns, both a couple of blocks away. Was not impressed with the honky tonk town but enjoyed the Craft Fair which is why we went.

The room was very clean with a fireplace and a balcony overlooking a running stream. Bathroom was very large. Beds were comfortable. Good free continental breakfast with waffles, biscuits and sausage, juice, milk, etc. Location is one block off the main drag so it is a little more low key. You can walk to all the action of Galinburg. We highly recommend the Pancake Pantry for breakfast.
