Nice Stay

We had a nice stay at Days INN. The room was clean. We gave it three stars because the air conditioner seemed to be having trouble keeping up and the door to the balcony was rotted heavily on the bottom. The Pool and hot tub looked clean, although the poor paint on the hot tub made it look dirty. Service was good. normal continental breakfast that included biscuits and gravy. The coffee was awful. 15 min walk to Downtown Gatlinburg and right across from hillbilly golf.

nice vacation

Our roon was very clean and I loved the balcony and listening to the water. I liked the fact theres a trolly stop right out front to downtown. Only thing was the first two nights I was there I woke up with welps on my arms but no where else I duuno if I was allergic to something or what but the last night it didnt happen but my husband didnt have anything so it probably was an allergic reaction.

Lopez getaway

The location was great. The room was outdated but comfortable enough. My only complaint is that it smell a little musty. We spent our days zip lining and whitewater rafting and went back to the room to sleep only. It's great if you only plan to use the amenities to sleep and not hang out at the hotel. .

You get what you pay for

I knew I wasn't going to be blown away by this hotel based on seeing the number of stars it had, but we had to book it in a hurry for a last minute trip and I did not take the time to read the reviews like I normally would. The staff was very warm and friendly, which is always a plus, the rooms were definitely a bit run down and the bathroom smelled awful. BUT, I did not see any roaches or anything, just one small bug. I think they do an ok job as far as cleanliness, but the whole hotel itself just needs a lot of TLC and updating. Overall, it wasn't a horrible experience, and I should have expected it to be a little rough based on the number of stars and the reviews. Also, it is walking distance to downtown, but it is a long walk. About half a mile. We did it a few times but then decided to just take the trolley which wasn't bad, only 50 cents per person.

weekend getaway

We came down for a long weekend getaway to hike in the state park. We had a great stay here! It is about a 20 minute walk to downtown, but was a very easy comfortable walk even at night. It was a great value and the room was clean. The staff was fantastic. Overall, I can't complain!

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Don't drive to the downtown area, you'll pay a fortune in parking fees. Just walk! The hotel is an easy enjoyable 20min. Walk from downtown.
