“Baskins Creek #412”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

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!!!

Room Tip: Ask for pool view, if possible. the other side of the complex overlooks the city but the views are n...

We stayed here for a week while visiting Gatlinburg. The location was perfect, not too close to all the touristy things on the parkway. You are able to walk to restaurants easily- don't expect 5 star dining.The condo was decorated well and had everything we needed. The property was quiet and well maintained. We did not mind that even though we were on vacation, we serviced the condo (did dishes and laundry). We liked having the roominess of a condo vs a hotel room and the price was good too! The pool area was very nice too.

Room Tip: 401b was at the end of the hallway so we found it to be quiet. Although the property seemed to have...

We just got back from a stay in Unit 306. We loved it! The entire building was so clean and quiet, even the balcony was spotless. It was great to escape from the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg here. Bathrooms were nicer than we have at home. Kitchen was well stocked with the essentials. Decor was modern but rustic. Beds were comfy. Added security of needing a hotel key to operate the elevator coming upstairs from the parking area. Staff was very courteous. Walked into town every day at least once or twice.

We stayed here for a week in July 12. Stayed in #206 for two nights and #502 for 5 nights as we extended our stay after initial booking. 206 is in the better condition, all furnishings clean and very new looking, holds up to 6 guests. 2 double beds in bedroom 2 and king in master all beds comfortable, great view of pool and some mountains. Everything worked and new flat screen Tv's in each room. 502 takes 10 guests and is thus more obviously 'used' with some small damage to carpets, furnishings and towel rails. Older style Tvs. Good views of pool and trees and some mountain views.
In bedroom spa baths are large and good for relaxining in. Same noise issue from air conditioning and when asked staff told us this was normal. Other noise in 502 is a stream/creek right next to the condo, that runs quickly, especially when raining - really pretty but noisy if you prefer silence at night.
All bed linens are good quality and clean. Towels rather small, basic and well used but clean and plentiful.Reception staff were helpful when asked but didn't go the extra mile and volunteer assistance as in some places we stayed which adds more to the experience.
Only real negative is that the air conditioning unit is in bedroom 2 and is very noisy when it runs during the night - if you're used to this it won't be a problem I guess.
Washing machine and dryer worked really well so no need to bring too much luggage.

Pool and spa hours10am to 10pm towels provided, pool a bit on the smal side given the number of families that stay here and teenagers a bit rowdy when unsuprvised - no staff to exercise any control so this detracted a bit from adult use of the pool area.
Free on site parking, some covered some open.
Pictures of the condo's make it look as if there is space around it - there isn't it's right next to other older motels and some private or rental housing. Staying pool side this wasn't a problem but I guess there was more traffic - people and cars on the mountain view side where the closest motel pools are situated.
Gatlinburg centre is a slow 10 minute stroll away or a more speedy 6 minutes for the energetic. Nice walk from condos. Lots to do for families in town and a few miles away. Not really a place for romance, more family focused area. Guess with all the attractions and gift shops it will be expensive with children! unless you go up into the mountains to walk, which is fantastic. Whole range of food outlets and prices.

Room Tip: If smaller number in party book a condo that only takes smaller numbers - likely to be in a bit bet...

Stayed in #406. Clean, spacious, well stocked and decorated. Perfect for my family of 4. Trolley stop at the front of the condo or an easy walk to the village and a great view of the pool. I can't imagine a better condo complex or value in Gatlinburg. Covered free parking a plus as the streets are very busy in the summer.

Exceptionally clean and quiet. The 2 most important qualities I look for in a place to stay on vacation. Covered parking, well maintained grounds and not to far off the main drag. Key card is necessary to enter the elevator from the parking area, and the lobby is locked up at night. Nice added bit of security. Will definitely return here on our next trip to Gatlinburg.

We have stayed at Mountain Vista for the past several years! The property is always clean and the location to downtown is great. Girls at the front desk are awesome. The condos are very roomy and well stocked kitchen. Love the king size bed and jacuzzi tub...also washer and dryer in condo! We stayed in Condo 310 this year with our two boys and their families each renting condos.
Although they are a bit pricey and don't offer much in the way of discounts...we will stay again.

Room Tip: Don't get poolside if you want it quiet...pool closes at 10pm but people are in it longer!
