Would not stay there again

First of all the website has some incorrect information. The motel is only open 8 am to 8 pm daily and completely closed on Sundays. They do not have 24 hour front desk. We arrived at 9:30 pm and we're lucky after half an hour on the phone with this website that the owner happened to come to the office to check on things. The owner was very nice. The first room smelled like smoke. The owner was very kind to move us to another room the next day. Both rooms were very outdated. The rooms were clean but housekeeping did not come at all to clean or give us fresh linens.

Helped provide a GREAT Vacation

Even though you failed to notify the motel in order to provide our reservations, the owner still made accommodations for us. There happened to be one room left. It was straightened out after some phone calls, as I had made arrangements and paid for it 6 months in advance. It could have been a disaster if we had to start looking for another room during a holiday week. I give Grand Prix Motel high marks for taking care of us.

Do Not Book Here!!

This hotel doesn't accept reservations from this site any longer!!! I was lucky that they just had a spare room available....If I would of know the location and the overall problems with this hotel I wouldn't of stayed there in the first place. I had no choice since I could not get a refund from paying through this site.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!!!!

First of all I want to start out by stating I am not a complainer. My husband and I generally try and find an inexpensive motel/hotel when we come to Gatlinburg cause we just need place to sleep. But this place was GROSS. When we checked in the lady was very friendly and told us she had upgraded us to a king size room. When we got to our room, the smell was horrible it smelled like a combination of body odor, cigarettes and mold. (this was an upgrade ouch) the bathroom had a shower head by no shower (not sure how that works out) they gave us one towel and one wash cloth. The lock on the door was something you would have on the inside of the bedroom door of your home one good wiggle and they would have your door open, we shoved a chair under the door and we swear their were bed bugs. and i also found out that when you book this mote thru Orbitsl you are charged more for the room. we paid $50.00 for three nights then booking thru the motel.. We left the following morning could not stay beyond one night if i could have given no stars on this place I would have

rurefreshing mini vacation!

Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful.They offered suggestions for local attractions and gave us several coupons. They took care of our requests immediately. The room had 2 queen beds and a full sized pull out sofa bed. We fit two adults and three kids comfortably. I noted they also accept dogs. The entire motel is nonsmoking, which was lovely. We walked everywhere in gatlinburg. The location is perfect!

so so

On a good note the staff was nice but when we got to our room it smelled horrible and was not very clean. When my Husband went and said something to the woman working in the office she had someone come and spray. They were shocked at how bad the room smelled of smoke. He sprayed a lot of order-ban in the room, the only problem was that now it smelled so strong of cleaners it burned your lungs to be in the room. We had to wait outside the room with the door open for about 2 or so hours for it to air out enough to go in. The pool was nice.

Not what I expected

Even for an older hotel it was not what I expected for the price I paid. The windows didn't have curtains only mini blinds and they wouldn't close all the way and the street light shined in the window all night. When we ask them at the front desk after the first night to fix the blind they never did. No remote for the tv, the chairs around the table didn't match, the key didn't work good in the door, had to put in all the way then pull it out a little before turning.

Not very good

When we first arrived (3:00 p.m. local time) I checked in and was given the room key. I went back to my car to move it to the designated parking spot when the hootel clerk came to me to let me know the room was nt cleaned and ready yet she said it would be about 45 minutes before the room would be ready(check in time is advertised as 2:00 p.m. local time. So we went off to wander for a bit upon returning the door knob needed some wiggling and jerking to get the key to open door. will not stay here again.
