This is a great place to stay. We knew we would not make it to Jack Huff's before the office closed so we called and they had our front door to our room unlocked and the blinds open with a light on. That gave it a real homey feeling walking up to our door. The room was really very nice. You could tell the room had been redone recently as the paint was fresh and there was new carpeting. There was also a flat screen TV and it looked like the bathtub, sink and toilet were new also. When we went to the office in the morning to check in the lady in the office was so nice. She gave us tips of where the good places to eat were. There was also another lady in the office, I don't know if she was a friend of the lady behind the counter or someone that worked there but she was also very nice. We didn't get a chance to use the pool, but it also looked well kept and clean. The pool even has a slide! We also didn't get a chance to use the hot tubs. The two hot tubs are in a room that the front wall is all glass so you can watch things going on outside.
The housekeeping ladies also do an excellent job. Since it was only my husband and myself on the trip we used the pillows from both beds. The housekeeping ladies kept all the pillows on the bed we used and didn't put them back on the other bed which was very nice and observant.
Our room was a short walk to the back entrance to The Village which was very convenient. The room was also very quiet. You couldn't hear the people on either side. You also couldn't hear the traffic on the street very much. The only thing we heard as far as street noise was the street sweeper.
Our room had two queen beds, a table and two chairs, an easy chair, mini fridge and microwave. Each room has it's own little front porch with two chairs and a table. On the ground floor rooms there is a back door that leads out to a walkway that leads to the room with the ice machine, vending machine, microwave and a coffee maker.
We have stayed at other places in Gatlinburg, but for the price, this is the place to stay. We will definitely be back to Jack Huff's. Everyone at Jack Huff's was very nice which made our stay even better.
The only thing that we found negative about our room was there needs to be a curtain at the back window. The walkway lights in the back shined in our room at night. But other than that everything else was great.
