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.

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.

Girls Getaway

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for walking or catching the trolley. A homemade breakfast was served every morning. The rooms were clean. The beds were very comfortable. Overall it was a nice place to stay and a great value as well. It made for a great girls getaway.

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.
