Spent a long weekend in Gatlinburg and called MVLR.com to check if there was a 2 br available. To my surprise, we rented the last one in the complex. The rate was only $169 plus taxes...very affordable for the amenities and compared to hotels around the area. Baskins Creek condos are located at light #6 in Gatlinburg and on the trolley route. The complex is new and in great condition with a gym and a pool/hot tub. The unit is on the 4th floor and nicely appointed with good furniture and comfortable mattresses. It was very clean too and has a washer/dryer. The kitchen has all necessities and the balcony is wide and has plenty of seating for when you want to sit and relax with a cool drink and it's also good for checking out the pool crowd before taking the kids down there! The carpet was super clean and the linens are nice. Towels (6) are supplied in the unit as well as paper towels, dishwasher detergent, bathroom soap, shampoo and toilet paper. Three tv's and dvd players make the stay nice for those of us with children who want to watch something different. The biggest thunbs-down for us was that the interior doors did not lock. This was a sight inconvenience, especially if you might want to take a long bath or shower in privacy. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans. Two fo the bedside lamps were needing light bulbs. Housekeeping should check those with each cleaning, in my opinion. The window blinds in each bedroom were also in need of repair as they could not be opened but that isn't a big deal. We used the pool twice and the hot tub too. The pool dept extends to 5 1/2 foot, perfect for kids. There's great seating available and pool towels are made available...that was sooo nice! The pool area was but most days but evenings were less so. The trolley route goes right by but, during heavy crowds, it takes about 45 minutes for a trolley to return to Baskins Creek. Its easier to walk or drive and park uptown. You can buy trolley passes for $2 per person at the office which are good for the entire day. The location is very near the aquarium and definitely walkable. Also, near downtown Gatlinburg shopping area...also walkable. Overall, my family of five was very happy with our rental here and plan on coming back. We live about two hours from Gatlinburg so we visit frequently. We'll probably stay at Baskins Creek condos every time we come, if possible. Great place and great location!!!
