My husband & I stayed in a two story condo for a week- unit 506. The first thing we noticed was the spectacular view of the mountains & downtown Gatlinburg. The balcony had a table & 4 chairs. It was mostly quiet, but we could hear traffic from downtown at times.
The condo was nicely decorated & clean, but not immaculate. The kitchen had a fair amount of cookware, etc, but there was only one oven mit & no pot holders. If you're planning on cooking daily, bring extra detergent for sink/dishwasher & trash bags. There wasn't a washer/dryer in this condo so we used the coin operated one in the building across the street to wash personal items. It was pretty dirty & needed some attention. On the bright side, we put dirty towels in a basket outside the door daily & they swapped them out for fresh ones. I don't think the other buildings have this privilege because they have a washer/dryer.
The master bedroom/ bathroom were lovely. The king sized bed was very comfortable & the hot tub was a treat after a long day of hiking. Really enjoyed the walk in shower also. It was quiet inside. A couple times we heard our neighbors goin up/ down the stairs in their condo.
The wifi isn't the best, but it'll do. It works better outside on the balcony.
Overall, we really liked staying there. It was comfortable & convenient. The positives definately outweigh the negatives.
