The hotel offers a great view of the mountains as well as great rates. Located 1 block from downtown Gatlinburg and the Aquarium. Rodeway is the best place to enjoy a Million Dollar view and great accommodations. Fireplace rooms: Fireplaces only in use from October 1 to April 1.

I have added the here to my list of places to start when visiting Gatlinberg. Cons: 1) it's an older building and has the look of one 2) the 2 "queen" beds were actually full size 3) their idea of breakfast is doughnuts and bagels Pros: 1) though older, the rooms are clean and the lay out was like an efficiency apartment. Including a small separate eating area, mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. 2) private balcony with a beautiful view 3) once again the building is old, steel and concrete I think, there was absolutely no outside noise coming in, very peaceful. 4) the price we got through online vender was more then half of what the Inn charges normally. 5) All of the staff was very friendly, a big Pro there. 6) walking distance to downtown, no having to pay for parking our deal with traffic.

A friendly, comfy deal of a place.

Folks, I read several reviews of this location. Then I made a reservation. That’s when I realized what’s really being reviewed here. I liked this place. Sure, it was a little eclectic, and it wasn’t “perfect”, but I enjoyed my stay. What it opened my eyes to is the way that some people like to criticize a place in their reviews, especially when they can remain relatively anonymous. No, the room was not spotless, but let’s face it, it’s an older hotel. It’s built in a mountainous area with significant design consideration given to the site limitations. (I’m an architect, so I’m allowed to say fancy, technical stuff like that.) But this hotel is very pleasant, quite comfortable, extremely affordable, and the staff is nothing if not extremely friendly, and very glad to be of service to their customers. So why the previous bad reviews? I’ve come to understand that a number of people, when traveling, expect levels of cleanliness, amenity and domicile-like living that they are unlikely to replicate in their own homes. Yet for a few bucks, they expect absolute perfection in their lodging arrangements. I also find that people without their nose in the air know that it’s better to find a good deal in a hotel, and enjoy a comfortable, very-decently kept room that’s safe, convenient and unpretentious. That’s what makes it a good deal! So if a crack in the tile in the bathroom sends you in a tizzy, your bedding must be right out of the manufacturer’s package, or older finishes are the bane of your existence, then no, don’t come to this Rodeway Inn. But if you’re like me, and see the hotel as simply a quiet place to crash after your day in the Smokey Mountains (my first visit, by the way), you can’t get a much better deal than this. I just wish I could have brought my dogs with me on the trip, because they would have loved coming to the mountains (and the hotel, because it is pet friendly). I might suggest to the owner that the internet needs improving, but to me, internet while traveling is simply an amenity, and not a life necessity. So, picky and overly discriminating types, don’t bother to show up. Those of you who have realistic expectations, an eye on your budget, and like down-home friendly folks working at your hotel, definitely consider this place for your trip to Gatlinburg or nearby Pigeon Forge. (I still gotta find out why they called it that…)

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Parking in Gatlinburg is very expensive. Save your effort and fuel, and WALK. It's a small place and you can hoof it to wherever you really need to get to.

The breakfast consisted of bagels, but for a quick night in.. this is the place to be. The rooms were super cute and the AC was AWESOME!

OK

*We stayed here for two nights, and the staff was great! We got in late and yet they still brought us a crib, and were more than happy to do so. *The carpet was very dirty in our room and needs to be replaced. *The shower had great pressure *The whole room needs to be updated, repainting, and fixing up. *Great place to stay if you are not in your room much, as we were not. *Walking distance to down town Gatlinburg

nice room

If you are planning on a 4 star fancy hotel this is not the one but if you want a clean and comfortable place to stay then this is it. It is within walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg and we really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. IT IS CLEAN which is very important to us.
