Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 11, 2011

This is the perfect place to stay.. you can walk to town with no problem (parking is horrible, so this saves you the trouble)
Also, you can drive to the mountains from here very easily.
The pool is nice, but small - it gets the job done though.
The resort is very nice and the rooms are clean and quiet.
We enjoyed our stay.

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend. We visit Gatlinburg at least twice a year and have stayed in several hotels, cabins, etc. We absolutely loved the Holiday Inn Club Vacation Resort. We stayed in a one bedroom villa and it was very very nice. The bed was very comfortable, great big bathroom, kitchen was just the right size, staff was very nice and helpful plus it was in walking distance of the main drag in Gatlinburg. We will definitely stay there again.

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend. We walked right across the street to a wonderful breakfast and many evenings walked down to the shops in Gatlinburg. Far enough away from the "strip" to avoid the noise, but only a 5 minute walk to Ober Gatlinburg tram.
The rooms are spacious and made for ling stays. With ovens, microwaves, blender... very comfy. Only complaint may be that we weren't given the option of having someone come in and make the bed and change out bed linens.

We had a great stay. Our room was very clean and overlooked the mountains. It slept four comfortably. The hotel was a very close walk off of the main strip, but also quiet. Below our balcony was a stream of running water which was refreshing and pleasant to listen to. The most outstanding aspect of the hotel was the staff. Everyone was more than friendly and helpful to answer our questions and guide us. Not sure if the warm hospitality was a normal part of their Southern hospitality, or the staff was just a fine group of people.... or both! I would stay there again.

My husband and I stayed 5 nights. We were very happy with the suite. We had a one bedroom king suite with a nice view. The kitchen was well equipped with everything that we may have needed. We did go out and enjoy the restaurants that were nicely within walking distance. All the staff was very friendly especially the maintenance people that we would meet in the hallways or elevator throughout the day. Floyd, especially went out of his way to help me with my internet problem and to follow up with us the next day. Thanks again Floyd!
The resort is a great location to everything. The pool and hot tub are great. We loved the place.

Room Tip: Just ask for anything

This is a practically perfect place to stay in Gatlinburg. These accommodations have nice little kitchens, lovely living and dining areas, gas fireplaces, and are exceptionally well designed. The decor is clean country stylish, and furnishings are of nice quality. We stayed in a two bedroom unit. Our teenagers had room to spread out and we had a fantastic master suite to ourselves. There is a balcony with rocking chairs off the main living area which is also accessible from the master bedroom but there are also draperies there for privacy, and there is also a private window for natural light and a view. We had a street view, which I liked alright, though I will try to avoid the noise of biker week in the future. Many of the units have a view of the forest I think. They have some issues with their computer reservations system, but the staff try hard to compensate. There isn't a restaurant, but with so many places around there to eat, it wasn't an issue for us.

Room Tip: Avoid lower floors above front drive-up canopy

We stayed there the week before Christmas. The location is pretty decent - off the main street which makes it pretty quiet. Yet, it is close enough to walk to the major attractions in Gatlinburg. Across the street is the Pancake House - very good breakfast restaurant. A short walk down the hill is Bubba Gump Restaurant - GREAT restaurant. A 15 min walk to the tram for Ober Gatlinburg. Aside from the good location, this is a great value. Not a ritzy upscale place, but it doesn't try to be. It is a comfortable and clean place for the family. The greatest asset is the people who work there. From the lady behind the desk, the manager, and even the maintenance worker - they all were cheerful, very helpful, and acted like they were glad to be there. They made my family's stay very happy and rewarding. My next stay in Gatlinburg will be here. I don't think it gets any better than this place.
