Not worth the amount they charged.

My wife and I mainly went for National Forest and nature. She wanted a hotel in town and close to shopping and restaurants, which this one is. Check in was easy, they did charge a resort fee, which I would say this is fare from a resort. Texas Road House is right across the street, which is nice because you cannot find parking in Gatlinburg. We did not spend much time in the City and found that it was easy to get in and out of the hotel if you took the Gatlinburg bypass. We love the mountains and nature, we were treated to several different and wild animal sightings to include three black bears along the bypass, turkey and a number of deer. There are several areas to walk it the forest and the views are great. Breakfast at the Hotel was ok, but nothing to get excited over. The staff was friendly, but the upkeep on the hotel was lacking. Our shower was dirty, the hall carpet was stain with dirt and the refrigerator in our room woke us up. It sounded like an old steam engine. We did not use the pool or the fitness center so I cannot comment on them. I wish that I would have rented a cabin. Just a word of advice, if you are on a budget, stop at a store before you get close to the area and buy snacks water and food as most of the prices a very high in Gatlinburg.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The National Forest is worth the trip, There are several places to drive and there are pull offs where you can get out of the car and walk around. Patience is needed when driving and by no means get I a hurry to go anywhere. Cars are frequently stopped along the road or in the rod looking at the wildlife.

terrible room

The location was great. The room...not great. I certainly don;t feel we got our money;s worth. I expect a $200 room to be great. Our room smelled musty, like someone has smoked and then they had cleaned. The toilet paper holder was broken, alone with the lampshade and the blind to the balcony door. The smoke detector was hanging off the wall and there was a big hole where it should have been. There apparently had been a water leak as there was a stain on the bathroom ceiling. Will never stay there again.

"The good, the bad, and the ugly"

This was a ok place to stay. It was close to everything we wanted to do. The problems we had is there was a hair on my suppose to be new bottle of shampoo. Also I went to use the blow dryer and it fell off the wall. The mirror in the lobby was dirty, as was the one in our room. With all the problems we had you would think they would offer us a discount but that was never mentioned. I am not sure if I would recommend my friends and family to stay here not so sure we will be back to this hotel or not.

Needs some maintenance

For the price, double what we normally pay at a much nicer hotel, we will NOT stay here again. We booked through an online booking and paid in full. We had our confirmation and receipt with zero balance. When we arrived, we were told we owed a $16.00 hotel fee. Argued the charge but paid it. We arrived early so at least we were allowed to go ahead and check in. The room was less than high quality for $189 plus tax and fees, $229. A light was out in the bathroom. The toilet paper holder was broke. The toilet would not quit running. The blind on the balcony was broke and we were on parking level with a car outside our balcony. The lamp shade by the bed was badly broken and the smoke detector was hanging off the wall. When I gave my list at checkout, the clerk, I'll tell maintenance. No....won't go back!

For the price, not too impressive...

A couple of things to keep in mind: This hotel is, at best, just a mid-level hotel. It is clean and perfectly adequate, but nothing more. You will be hit with a $9/day "resort fee," and will not be informed of it till you check in. I am a seasoned traveler, and this is most definitely not a resort in any way, shape or form. It has the standard amenities that nearly all hotels have, and which are included with the rate at most places. However, breakfast is included. It features the usual cold choices: a couple of types of cereal, a fruit or two, cake doughnut and waffle iron. They also offer a "hot" breakfast--eggs, grits, biscuit--which are okay, EXCEPT for the fact that my wife's grits were completely UN-cooked. I thought she was just being ticky and tried them myself, and PTTTPHFF!. They were sand raw. Wife informed them of this, but the woman at the table next to us a bit later had the same un-cooked grits served to her. Another thing...if you get one of the rooms facing the street (Gatlinburg's main drag), you will hear Harleys, hot rod cars and music blaring from some of them, all day and up till about midnight. The room was nice and clean and the bed was just okay. There are many places to eat etc., withing walking distance even for the fattest and laziest, i.e. next door. Overall, not too impressed for the price, as stated in the subject line.

Good Location

This hotel is at the furthest ind of the Parkway (main drag). I was able to walk to all the attractions on the main drag. That saved on parking charges which usually were $10.00 in most of the public lots. The hot breakfast was good, not great. When I checked in I was told there was a $15.00 + tax per night "resort fee". We left an item behind when we checked out (pair of shoes) and had a difficult time getting it when we drove back to the hotel. My guess is it was in the housekeeper's bag. This was my first time in Gatlinburg, so I had no idea where I was staying is relation to the attractions I wanted to partake in. The location was ideal.
