Driving around the country you'll see old ruins of roadside motels from the early/mid 20th century...well, in Gatlinburg, they're all still operating...and this one was certainly sufficient if you're looking for a place to lay your head at night.
I was going to rate this "average" but evidently for Gatlinburg it's above average. It's old, but that's part of the charm...apparently. It's been family operated for decades. Our room was overlooking the stream outside which provided a natural noise blocker and allowed for a good night's sleep, which was all I could ask for. The wine and chex mix/cheese in the evening and the breakfast were sufficient but as basic as you could imagine. The ladies running the food service didn't seem at all happy to be there. Think elementary school cafeteria for portion size and quality. Not bad at all, just hardly worth mentioning.
The rooms were very dated and basic, but again, sufficient. Clean if not a bit damp. I did like the fact that Zoders is a 3 minute walk to the strip, so it's not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle and crowds.
