Staying at Best Western Zoder's Inn was exceptional from beginning to end. We were there for five nights and enjoyed every minute. When we arrived to check-in the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had the most interaction with the two gentlemen who worked evenings and they were always willing to help in any way and answer all of our questions. It wasn't just the front desk, the housekeeper and the ladies who worked in the rec room were all friendly too.
Our room was great. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, we had a balcony view of the stream, and it was close to the pools (which we specifically requested when making the reservation). There was a fridge and free high-speed interent access. We also liked how the hotel was on the outskirts of downtown Gatlinburg. It was much quieter, but still within walking distance of everything. Both the indoor and outdoor pools were heated and my kids had a great time swimming. The indoor pool closed at 10:45, but the outdoor pool was open 24 hours, so we could swim late after we returned to the hotel.
The food was good. Breakfast was not extravagant, but there were enough different choices to satisfy. There is also complimentary wine and cheese served from 5-7 and cookies (which were great) and milk served from 8-10. The kids loved that as a bedtime snack. The only negative of our stay is that there is not a huge amount of parking and we sometimes could not get a spot near our room. Other than that, everything was excellent. If we ever return to Gatlinburg, we'll definitely stay there again.
