A prison would have better accommodations then this place. I would not wish this place on my worst enemy. I booked the room because it was cheap, also because I am relocating to the area. I booked a week and could not make it two days. The mildew stench was so strong and the old cigarette smoke consumed everything. The plywood beneath the carpet shifted as you walk across the floor. There clearly is water damage to this place, and as there were roaches even in the flyer holder for the attractions of the area. The mattress and box spring were clearly from a salvage yard or dumpster. The towels from a hospital. And the hot water was at best lukewarm.The complimentary soap package dated back to the 80's or 90's.
You can do a lot better. The people who gave this place a decent review are low lifes or blind with no nose.
I moved out because of the mildew stench was so strong even after spraying a deodorizer. I woke up on my second day gasping for air. I can take a lot, but my limit was here.
I moved to the Marshall Creek Inn which is right beside it. It's a total night and day. The rooms were spotless, the staff friendly and helpful. This place reminds me of my grandmother's home cozy and clean, and affordable. These people care about you and your stay in Gatlinburg.
