Baymont Inn & Suites Gatlinburg On The River
Ranked #14 of 78 Hotels in Gatlinburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 1, 2013

All of the rooms at this hotel have a stunning view of the river below from the balcony . The rooms are just a little past their best but comfortable and quiet since the balcony view is at the rear of the hotel. The room was clean and a slightly musty smell cleared when the A/C was running. As with other comments, it was good to have a refrigerator and microwave, although this seems to be more common nowadays. We liked the breakfast and, overall, were happy with our stay.
The location is close enough to the center of Gatlinburg to easily walk (a bonus because parking in the center is a pain) - about 10 minutes. Pleasant staff and good service.We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Near the reception desk if you must have good wifi reception

The room was nice and clean. Refrigerator and microwave in the room is a positive. The Wi-fi did not work too well. The location is excellent. Very close to all the attractions. Good for a short stay.

We stayed at this hotel for four days 10-11 thru 10-14 in room 204. The most troubling was that at 7am on 10-14, there were two bedbugs on top of the sheets on one of the beds. My husband has one bite. We presented the bugs to management, who said when we got home to shake out all the things we had with us. No other instruction other than to let them know if we had any medical bills.

The picture on choicehotels.com grossly misrepresents this hotel. It has some kind of log cabin siding which obstructs the view on most of the front balcony, and appeared to be under renovation, which is badly needed. Room 204 was one that was apparently completed and was dark and smelly. It is correct that it is all of three car lengths from the main highway in Gatlinburg, and is three stories above one story of parking. There is a second level of parking down below, next to the river that had construction materials. The breakfast room was never big enough, and the Krispy Kreme donuts were stored for use the next day in an open box one shelf above two garbage cans.

I inquired of choicehotels.com about it and they were to get back to me in 72 hours. They haven't. I would NEVER stay here again, and regret that we stayed there as long as we did. This, along with the parks being closed, totally ruined our vacation.

Room Tip: Go on down the road.

The room was spacious and mostly renovated with clean paint, carpet, sink, counter and doors. They seem to have forgotten to renovate the bathtub and the beds.

The beds squeeked and felt quite "old". The bathtub was so gross that I didn't even want to stand in it to shower. The non skid circle stickies were black making them look filthy.

The room had a gorgeous view over the creek in the back with a nice balcony to sit on and the walls were fairly sound proof as I didn't hear the neighbours at all.

Aside from the bathtub, it was a great room and great hotel.

This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel. In the last three years, the hotel has undergone a number of upgrade that has made our stays more enjoyable. The rooms have been repainted, new carpet installed, electronic locks, microwave and mini-frig. Our stay was on Saturday night, and we did hear motorcycle sounds until 11pm. Our balcony was over the river. The water views and water sounds were delightful. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast included sausage, eggs, waffles, cereal, pastries, fruit, coffee, juice, and milk.

Room Tip: Upper floors have the best views!

We stayed a 4 nights in July. The rooms were nice and clean (no bugs!!), recently updated with a nice little balcony overlooking a beautiful creak. The linens were clean and we were able to get extra fresh towels (upon request) with no hassles.

The location was good, was near a trolley stop. Very easy to hop on the trolley and get into downtown Gatlinburg to walk through all of the shops without paying to park.

Free breakfast. The food was pretty good (waffles, biscuits & gravy, sausage, eggs, bagels, cereals, etc) but there were only like 4 tables, so we had to take breakfast back to our room every morning. That didn't bother me, because I enjoyed having breakfast out on the balcony.

The only 2 things that stopped me from giving the hotel the full 5 stars was the wifi was horrible. Couldn't hardly get on. And the pool was very weird. It had a very large deep end, and a very small shallow end that was hard to get in and out of.

We will definitely stay again though, I've stayed in a lot of hotels in Gatlinburg and this was one of the better ones. The view from the balcony was spectacular!

Unfortunately, we had to find another hotel in Gatlinburg after spending 2 nights without sleep because of the noise on the 4 lane road in front of the hotel. The trucks and motorcycle traffic did not slow down, not even at 2-4 am. There was thick dust on the upholstered chair seats and the notepad on the nightstand had water stains on it. The rate was close to $80 per night with all taxes, while hotels 5 minutes away in Pigeon Ford were advertising $29 rates all up and down the strip. These are hotels that I feel are comparable to the Comfort Inn on the River, We spent more and relocated to an upscale hotel.
