We stayed here for one night as a somewhat half way point on our way home to Chicago from Savannah. We wanted to see the Smoky Mountains and thought we'd stay in Gatlinburg. I had a really hard time deciding where to stay. Prices and reviews were all over the place. We didn't want to spend too much but didn't want to stay in some place that was dumpy. I think we made a solid choice with the Quality Inn Creekside. With tax we ended up paying right at $100 for the night. The location was great. It's right in the heart of what my husband and I jokingly called a "carnival town". Gatlinburg really is like a giant tourist trap, but we had fun walking around, people watching, and enjoying the views of the mountains. We ate at the Smoky Mountain Brewery. We had a very tasty pizza and did a tasting of their amazing micro-brews. We like good beer, and this was really really good beer. No additives. No preservatives. Simply delicious! It was right next door to the hotel too, making it a convenient walk back.
Checking in to the hotel went fine. Staff was pretty friendly. The lobby is old and worn, but when we got to our room is was nice and updated. It had country/modern furniture and linens. The bed seemed pretty new and was comfy. I have a feeling parts of this hotel are updated and others are not, since other reviewers have complained that this place is old. Our room was in a separate building and up a very steep driveway. It was right next to some condo buildings. They had a walkway and elevator set up so that you could easily get to the lobby without ever having to walk up or down the steep driveway. We had a balcony off of our room which was nice. We had a mountain view and the sunrise was beautiful. At night, there was a very loud band playing at a restaurant next door. We didn't mind it, and kind of enjoyed sitting out on the balcony, chatting, and listening to the music. For others the loud music could have easily been a big annoyance. There were two queen beds, a fireplace, and a little mini kitchen area with a fridge and microwave in our room. Overall we were very comfortable and pleased with our stay. The breakfast did leave much to be desired. I can barely remember what they offered, but it wasn't much. I think we grabbed a donut and then ate out somewhere a few hours later. If you're looking for a place to stay in a great location, rooms with a view, clean, comfortable, updated, right at $100 a night, this is your place! I booked straight through their website and got the best price that way.
