Great location for the price

The motel was clean and had a friendly staff. Also the location was great for the price. They also served bisquits and gravey for breakfast. They also offered free wi-fi which was a plus.

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

We had stayed here several years ago and loved the room. We also liked the room this time..a gas log fireplace, a sink and fridge, coffee pot, flat screen tv. I had forgot that their towels and wash clothes were very scratchy, poor quality. There was no dish cloth or paper towels. The UGLY was on Saturday morning before check-out. Our little sink in the livngroom exploded like a volcano...spewing yucky brown water with chunks of brown-green stuff coming out of drain. No way to cut off. Maid came in and called office. They offered appologizes, but a refund on bill would have made me much happier. Luckily we were almost ready to check out. This is what would probably keep us from stay here again.

Great Place For The Money

We had a great time. The hotel was just like it said. Everyone one was very helpful and friendly. I booked a room with two beds and when we got there they put us in a one bed room. But no problem, I called the desk and they move us to much better room.

Just ok

Room was fair. Charged .25 cents for a bucket of ice.(Never heard of this) Room was fairly clean but old. Maid service was not good. Beds were poorly made. TV remote did not work. Had no ramp to the 3rd floor. Had to carry everything up 3 flights of stairs. Not a hotel I would recommend (especially to the elderly) or stay at a 2nd time. Not Impressed! Have stayed at others that were better and cost less.

Key Club Trip

Hotel was a bit over rated in price we found rooms for 24-44.00 compared to the 80.00 we paid, and the delux breakfast was noting more than juice, coffee, milk,cereal, hot gravy over cold biscuits. The kids did not complain, however, we will not go their next time. Very, very outdated.

Disaster Vacation

After disrespectful and rude employee didn't have beds and rooms set up properly, child slept in floor because bed unavailable and manager was never available/called. Other guests were drunk and disorderly and clercial staff treated family rudely along with next customer coming in the door right after. Maid was smoking while cleaning rooms so all of the rooms smelt of smoke. Hotel employee made no attempt to stop kids throwing football in parking lot and hitting cars.

Not bad for the price

Room was pretty good. Our room faced the road and pool and the door doesn't close real tight so was pretty loud. The stairs really need power washed and painted. Breakfast was ok but not to much to chose from didn't even have butter. Overall was ok for the price. Probably would stay somewhere else next time. The locations was great though. Not close to theme parks though but really none of the hotels are. Just don't think you can walk to Dollywood from the hotel it's about 6 miles.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If you go to Dollywood it is so worth paying for a Q2Q it's a fast pass for the rides. people had to wait forty five minutes we didn't wait any it was great!!
