It's what the price deserves

Ordinary room. All you should expect for the price. The breakfast is OK, but it's free. The coffee machine wasn't cleaned.

Trip to Dollywood

We spent two days at Dollywood/Splash Country and the location of the motel was perfect. It was very clean. Easy to get in and out. The room was nice size with a small table. Bathroom was nice. Breakfast was good with a lot of variety. We would definitely stay there again.

Perfect Location

My husband and I were taking a vacation alone away from the kids. We chose this hotel due to the convenient location. We were more than pleased with the entire package. The staff was super friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. The beds were so comfortable. The air was very cold in the rooms. The pool was really warm. The hotel was full, yet it was very quiet. A+

Fireworks

I requested a non-smoking room. The room I got was rank with ciggarette smoke. The curtains, pillows,etc. there were ciggarette burns in the carpet. No jacuzze I had a allergic/asthma attack from the smell. Took three hours to go to wal-mart due to traffic to get a bottle of fabreeze. The staff were friendly but said O picked the room for me. As in the past I have booked thru O I got the worst room the motel had.

Summer Vacation 2014

Dirty.Lime green wall in room. Ripped chair upholstery, I would not sit on it or set anything on it. I was afraid it might have bed bugs. Day two: chewed gum left in wrapper on dresser (two different pieces)Grotesque! Positive: the beds were very comfortable and breakfast was good.

Horrible room great location

We stayed here before and had a pleasant experience. This time we stayed in a room that was apparently never updated in the remodel. Carpet was stained, microwave was sitting on floor, sink in bathroom stoppped up, and it was a smoking room when we had reserved a non smoking. When we requested a different room, they said they were booked and gave us a can of febreeze to cover the smoke smell. Sink was never fixed, although it was requested numerous times. I would not stay here again or recommend it to anyone.
