I was very nervous about booking this hotel in Gatlinburg after reading a TA review that most hotels in Gatlinburg were run down--not this one. It has been completely renovated recently (just reopened in May, 2011). I was very pleased with room 301. We stayed 3 nights and were always happy to come back to our room after a day out enjoying the sites in this area. The hotel is located within walking distance to all the attractions, eateries and shopping of Gatlinburg but is also located on the quiet end of town near the entry to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. We had a private balcony overlooking the river (we call it a creek) and it offered musical sounds as we rested after a busy day out on the balcony. We were always greeted each day and evening by desk attendants with delightful attitudes and helpful suggestions for us. Our room had a whirlpool tub, fireplace, frig, microwave, large flat screen TV and 2 queen beds all for $89.99/night (exluding tax)--believe it, it was a great deal. Do not expect much for a pool or public hot tub here. If you expect that, please check out another property. This was more of a couples retreat without kids. I have been leary about staying at "motels" with the enterance to the outside but staying here has made me rethink this worry in the future. This was a very magical stay--maybe the mountains had something to do with our enjoyment here but I would definitely stay here again if in this area.
