“What a value!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

We could not believe the size of the unit(1200 sq ft) for the price we paid. Extremely clean. 5 minute walk to downtown, and on the red line for the trolley. Quiet and peaceful. They even clean for you at no extra cost, and provide all linens. We will be back!

We came to Gatlinburg for a 4 day weekend! We stayed on the 5th floor with a view of the pool! The condo was super clean! It is a bit pricey, but I think it is great for the quality! Way nicer than a hotel and closer to town than most cabins! Will come back!!

My husband and I just returned from a 5-day stay at the Baskins Creek Condos in Gatlinburg, TN.
We stayed in room 211......it was "immaculate"!

I've never stayed at a cleaner place than this. I even saw an employee vacuuming the parking lot! (which is a "covered" parking lot - nice!).
The units are very roomy with contemporary decor and just a touch of rustic atmosphere. There were more amenities than I expected: dishes, pans ,high quality utensils, glasses, dishwasher - even a washer/dryer and plenty of towels, and, of course, a fireplace, patio, Jacuzzi tub, etc.

At this time of year the condo had a special - stay 3 nights and the 4th night is free, so after researching for 2 days, reading reviews of many hotels (not so good reviews) and finally after seeing the pictures of this room - it was a "no-brainer" to book this condo for 5 days. However, I was still surprised at the great value of the place.

The condos are located on Woliss Lane, but it is only a 5 minute walk to downtown Gatlinburg - well worth it. We plan on coming back next year and definitely staying here. I highly recommend the Baskins Creek Condominiums!

We just returned from a week in Gatlinburg and stayed at the Baskin Creek Condos. It was the perfect setting for a family with 3 quiet bedrooms, full kitchen, washer dryer and a hot tub on the porch. We had everything we needed. The location is about a 5 minute walk from the mass consumerism of Gatlinburg, which was ideally nestled at the base of the hills. The only critique is that the evening Baskin Creek receptionist can be rather snippy and seems more interested in watching TV than helping guests.

The rooms here are beautiful. That is all. When we checked in, the girl at the desk acted like we were interrupting her. She was texting on her cell phone, and made sure to finish her text before she even looked up at us. During the process of check in, apparently she had a reply on her phone, stopped to look at it, reply to it, and then finish with us. When we realized that the car was parked at the entrance we were trying to figure out how to get our bags in, so as we turned to ask her, now she was actually talking on the cell phone and put her finger up in the air as if to say "wait". Not exactly hospitable. When we did finally ask her, she looked at us as if we were stupid, and told us to pull around to the parking garage. We made it into the room, very very nice. Can't say enough about the room. There was a dance group there that weekend. When we went down to the pool, the pool was consumed with kids from the dance teams. Jumping, running, swimming into people, no parent supervision, as one of them told us they had a teenager with them so they didn't need their parents. One teen for 25 kids??? It was out of control. When we complained at the desk, this same girl basically said she couldn't do anything about it. Wow!! The next day we came down to rent some movies, as my husband was sick. There was nobody in the Lobby. NOBODY at 3:00pm. We called out, we waited for about 15 minutes then just gave up. We saw several housekeepers during our stay, but apparently they are either rude, deaf, or don't speak english. For what we paid for, the lack of customer service was extremely dissapointing. I would not stay here again at all. At least not as long as this staff and management are around. As much as we loved the room, it was more frustrating than anything.

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...
