“Nice place to stay on the strip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

This was a nice hotel to stay at, a little back story, my wife and I got married in Gatlinburg in 2007. She remember driving through this area and wanted to stay somewhere on that end of town this time and we stayed in Sevierville the last time we were on vacation in the area.

We remembered the days in being decent looking and decided to give it a try. Room was very nice and clean, flat screen TV, fireplace, etc. Downsides were the bathroom was a little small and breakfast wasn't grand but the ups definitely were worth the downs!

Hotel has an indoor and outdoor pool which was nice for the kids, especially when it rained, we just moved indoors and kept going! Seemed like a quiet area, decent parking and great access to the strip. This is an ideal place to stay if you want to park your car for the trip and take the trolley everywhere or walk! Will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be about the same.

Stayed here my first time ever traveling to gatlinburg. The hotel was in nice condition. Bed was amazing. New linens. I had a smoking room and it didn't smell bad at all. Front desk staff was very friendly and recommended a few places to check out and gave us coupon books. Wouldn't swim in the pool though.

When making my reservation online I had inadvertently chosen a non-refundable rate. This was my mistake and i own up to it. However customer service told me to call the hotel as the manager was the only one who could cancel the reservation (had a change in travel plans). After 3 messages and 5 days I still have yet to get a call. The desk agent said he has multiple properties. Still no excuse.

The room was small and felt dark. Very few electrical outlets for charging phones and cameras. The breakfast consisted of donuts (store bought Krispy Kreme) and mini bagels plus 2 varieties of cereal. Didn't think the elevator was going to get us to the floor in one piece. The only highlight was the upgrade the desk clerk gave us for the reservation issue to a room with a balcony overlooking the parkway. However the balconies connect to each other and we were told to leave a key outside because the door locks automatically. Do so at your own risk!!

We decided to leave for vacation one day early and the place that we always stay at was booked so I booked a room on line here for one night and was very surprised. We would not have minded staying here for the whole week and saving $75 a night! The room was much larger than i thought it would be and clean. The patio over the Parkway was a unexpected delight. We walked all over Gatlinburg without parking worries, Plenty of places to eat in the area. Breakfast was what you would expect at a motel but Bennetts which is a very easy walk had a great breakfast buffet. The only compant I can think of it that there were no cups or glasses of any kind in the room. I am sure that some would have been brought to us when we recieved ou r " is your room ok " call but we had some of our own.

We booked this room for an on a budget girls weekend.The rooms were good sized. The bathroom was small and in need of repairs. The beds seemed new and it was the best night's sleep that I've ever had at a hotel.Location was excellent and the free parking invaluable. Breakfast was basic and what you would expect from this type of hotel. We kept the "Do Not Disturb" sign up so the maid never came in but she did give us fresh towels every morning. There is a carry-out next door and Bennett's BBQ (Yum!) on the road behind it. The hotel is on the far end (closest to the park entrance) of the strip but still close enough to walk to everything. We did not use either of the pools but they appeared to be clean. The place was booked to capacity both nights but we never heard a peep from our neighbors or any parking lot noise. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

I recently stayed at this hotel and was fairly happy with it. It was a nice place to stay for the price. Even though the bathrooms were small, it still was a reasonable place to stay. It was clean, the housekeeping was good and the whole hotel staff was friendly. I don't understand where some of these other reviews that say the staff wasn't friendly came from. They were friendly from the minute I checked in to when I left. They even gave me a courteous call when I got to my room, the first time that I ever received one. I recommend this hotel for those who are looking for a reasonable place to stay
