Anniversary trip

This hotel was awful! The room smelled,bugs and black mold in the shower. We were told the hot tub and indoor pool were being redone and the out door pool was heated. Wrong! It was so cold we couldn't get in.I will never stay here again and wouldn't have even stayed the one night if I had known the conditions . The resort we stayed at all weekend was booked and we couldn't get a room for one more night so we ended up here. I would not recommend this hotel to ANYONE!

Great Family Place!

Super friendly staff. Very helpful and explained everything that was available upon check in. The rooms were clean and something you don't find in hotels a lot are comfortable beds and pillows. I could of just laid in bed all day. And the bedding was very clean! The location was perfect.

Valentine Getaway!

The room was very clean. Staff was very nice! Hot Chocolate and cookies at night was wonderful! The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the walls were very thin, could hear the people in the next room until after 11pm. But, will be visiting again soon!

Nice spot in Gatlinburg though about a mile from center of town

The room and location were fine for the most part. The only negatives were the following: the room we were given, 216, was in the front of the hotel, right above the hotel entrance, which was OK, with the exception of the extremely bright spot-lights illuminating the front of the hotel which may or may not affect your ability to sleep. The flimsy curtain did nothing to keep out the bright lights. Think sleeping outdoors under a full moon. If the hotel wasn't so cheap, they would install a real curtain which would fully close, rather than the flimsy curtain backed by a fake thick curtain which was not designed to close and was only there for decoration. After a long day of walking all around Gatlinburg, it would be nice to be able to sleep in a dark room, rather than under the spot-lights... Plusses for the hotel include the two liquor stores on each side of the hotel. The only two in town from what I could see. The town trolley comes right through the hotel property and will take you to the center of town for free. Don't try to drive around Gatlinburg if you are staying there as the parking situation is horrible. The trolleys will take you everywhere.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

The Smoky Mountain Brewery in the middle of town had excellent food, and drink, though the prices were inflated as was everything in Gatlinburg. Food and drink in Gatlinburg averages 25%-50% more expensive than Knoxville. Bring lots of money if you plan to visit this tourist trap town.

Very pleasant stay. Will choose this hotel again. Coffee and cookies in the lobby in the late afternoon after an excursion and before dinner was very nice.
