Great Girl's Getaway!

The hotel was clean and not to far to the main strip. It wasn't luxury by any means but it was worth the price for sure. It had a working fridge and microwave. There were a lot of loud children but that comes with the cheap price. I would definitely stay here again .

fantastic location

Uber Gatlinburg for cable car to mountain is just next to the hotel. You don't need to pay parking.

Great Location and soft beds and clean

Location perfect you can walk all through Gatlinburg from here. Free parking is nice too. Bed as super soft, gas fireplace was nice. Having two sinks was nice. Only major complaint was the water, it would randomly change from cold, to scalding hot :( made showers rough. We just took some cold ones since being burned was unpleasant. (Did not bother complaining since we were maximizing our vacation time instead of waiting around for someone to fix it).
