Great stay

Great stay especially for the price and location. Nothing fancy here, but exactly what we needed. Clean, good location, free breakfast, comfy beds - no real complaints for the money paid.

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.

Love the location!

I do love the location of this hotel and the free breakfast! The only thing is my room was never cleaned and I never got any towels after they took all my dirty one! Other than that great place!

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.

Vacation getaway

The hotel was in an average location-near Dollywood (which we planned to go). Weather was extremely cold; however, trolly stop was just outside the hotel. A little noisy from the road traffic.

Okay if your looking for a place to crash

The furniture was old, the refrigerator didn't work. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. Hotel needs an update badly. The staff was very nice.
