We were pleased with our stay the end of July 2013. I rely on Tripadvisor for feedback when traveling. I have written a few reviews over the years for hotels and restaurants. I have picked some duds before and some really good ones. This is a good one. I am a AAA memeber & ChoiceHotels member so I try to pick something that participates with those. This hotel is about 1/4 to 1/2 mile off the main Parkway. It is withing walking or driving distance to restaurants, shopping or other fun activities. It is a quiter location. We stayed on poolside and on a upper floor. It is not far from 2 entrances into Great Smoky Mountain. You have hiking and the great outdoors all around you. If you are a hiker, Greenbrier entrance is nearby. Also, main entrance into the park is just a few miles away. You have restaurants withing walking distance. The hotel was clean. The breakfast was good. They have waffle irons and good selection of cerals and pasteries. A wonderful pancake house right next door. Beds were comfortable. Staff was friendly. Only bad comment is this particular site needs more luggage bell carts. When you have alot to carry when checking in or out , it is difficult. You have to make several trips. Very frustrating when tring to check out and have to wait several hours for a cart. need more carts for a hotel this size. I realize someone people put them in their room the nite before or early am, but if more carts were available, it would not be as bad. Also the elevator was extemely slow. I realize that sometimes that can not be changed. Just a constructive comment. Overall, the room we stayed in was quite. It was on 6th floor- Pool side. Very nice. Room was good and so was location. The price was reasonable. No major problems. You have alot of choices of things to do in the area. I will stay here again. When we go to to Pigeon Forge for the carshows, I usually stay in Pigeon Forge so we can walk. Gatlinburg has the same hotel I stay in Pigeon Forge, but on Tripadvisor it has not been rating well over the years. This one rated well. Hope it continues to.
