Nasty

Service at front desk was poor. Room smelled really bad. Room was dirty and the trim on the Fire place was coming off. It cost money for ice but I don't think I would use the rust bucket anyway. The door didn't lock properly and when I asked for help I was ignored. Very unhappy with my stay.

Good value

Older property needs some work, painting, maintenance, landscaping. Clean. Staff was helpful and friendly. Had to pay to get ice from the machine. Short drive to shopping, attractions, and Dollywood. Would stay there again.

Short break on the trip

While visiting my son in Va. Tech. My husband and I take two days trip to Smoky Mountain and have one night stay in this hotel. The room we book is equipped with fire place - a king bed suite. 20 off price it's truly a steal. Bed is very comfortable and also provide hot breakfast. In addition, the famous restaurant across the street "Old Mill" - you can just walk there, one place you can't miss.

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+
