My husband and I just stayed in Gatlinburg October 26-29th loved the room and the location. We had plenty of exercise walking downtown Gatlinburg. We will stay here again. The staff was terrific. The bed was to die for I have never slept in a bed in a Motel that was just heavenly...

The photos you see of this inn are exactly how it looks. Balconies right on the rushing stream, you can sit outside and enjoy the peacefulness. Zoders is not smack in the middle of town, but just a few minutes out, still on the main road, so not as much foot or car traffic. Walking distance to pancake restaurant, or free quick breakfast provided at hotel snack bar area. It felt like the old school atmosphere - family oriented, quiet, people outside stoking the fire pit at night, friendly, clean. Parking was easy, no stairs, they have a ramp instead which was so nice. Beds comfortable, bathroom very roomy and clean.

My husband and I were vacationing in Gatlinburg TN from 22 Oct-26 Oct, I have to say we were very pleased with our stay. I liked the ideal that we were not on the main drag, and the walk was great excercise, each day we went on trails and then at least three times a day we walked to the main drag and walked from one end to the other. Your staff were very friendly. Our room was clean and I loved the balcony, it was great to sit out there and listen to the water stream. The only thing that I will do different, is will bring our pillows, your pillows were uncomtable, but the bed was great. I have spoken highly to my family and friends about out stay at the Zoders Inn, we look forward to our next stay with yal.

Room Tip: Bring your own pillow.

Absolutely love Zoders Inn in Gatlinburg. The staff is professional, fun, and efficient. Several variety of rooms. Must book early. A little walk to get to main drag on Parkway but worth it. Trolley stop near by. Love it, love it. Will never stay any where else. Love the balcony over the rushing water rooms the best.

We stayed three nights this past week. The front desk people were pleasant and professional and the room was nicely furnished and clean. Our room was a two-story setup, where the bedroom was on the second floor. We would rather have had a normal room. It got old walking up and down the spiral staircase. In shopping around we found Zoders is substantially on the high end of the pricing vs their competitors. The location of the motel is not great. Its on the north end of Gatlinburg, pretty far from most of the activity in town. We went for the wine and snacks our first night. It was OK, but the atmosphere was not too enjoyable. Its a room next to the indoor pool and the woman handing out the wine and snacks ignored us when we tried to make conversation. Next time we'll try somewhere else.

The best things about Zoder's are the value for the money, the wine in the afternoon and the location. You can walk almost everywhere form there. We spent 3 nights and found it very convenient. Our room overlooked the stream, which makes a nice sound day and night.

Room Tip: Room 224 is not the best unless you like hitting the toilet paper holder every time you use the toil...

We have going to Zoders for 20 years or more but have noticed a gradual decline in the quality of the rooms. Although our room was clean, the rooms are now sorely in need of some renovation. Our bed was hard, the tv was very old, and the bathroom needed some modernizing. The breakfast hasn't, changed one item in 20 years! The big draw here is the location with a balcony right over the brook. For years that was enough to keep us coming back, but there are now other motels on the brook which have higher quality rooms for a similar price.
