“Needs Improvement”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

This hotel definately needs improvement.The overall appearance of the hotel is not to bad considering the age of most buildings in Gatlinburg but definately looks old.Upon arrival the clerk at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming and check in was a breeze.I have no complaints on the staff.The elevator is small and difficult to get a luggage cart into,lucky for me I am fairly small so I could manage to reach the buttons but we made it.I chose an upgraded room with a balcony and king bed so I was extremely disappointed when entering the tiny little room we were given. To make a long story short I have nothing nice to say from here.The balcony was not private,the bed was hard, the air conditioner was pathetic,the room was just plain to small for the furniture crammed in it, the bathroom was tiny and dingy and forget trying to take a shower in the morning because there was no water pressure! I feel like this hotel is a total rip off and will never stay here again. The only nice thing about this hotel was the staff and location. Oh by the way..be sure to take ear pluggs if you stay on front of hotel because it is very loud.

My family and I stayed here 10/8-10/10....overall stay was "ok". Would not stay again unless improvements were made all around. First off front desk staff was very unwelcoming. One particular lady was semi rude the other was nice but seemed unsure maybe not fully trained yet. The rooms were small and the bathrooms even smaller. Barely enough room to turn around in. Very hard with 3 small children. The beds were full size mattresses on queen size box springs. Just very uncomfortable and pillows were just as uncomfortable. The room had been updated some but still felt outdated. The indoor pool was small and the chlorine was so strong my children's eyes an faces burned so bad after swimming I refused to let them go back in the pool. Plus pool towels were not available. The lady at the front desk called housekeeping numerous times but she told me she couldn't get anyone to respond. Really felt sorry for the clerk. She was very nice but just seemed overwhelmed an no one was around to help her. Just not the experience I was hoping for.
