We could leave car at hotel and walk to strip and a beautiful view

It was disgusting there was cockroaches in our room after exploring for the day we came back and seen cockroaches so at 8 at night we ended up having to find a new hotel to go to! Would not recommend to anyone!!!

Location a plus, older property needs some upkeep, front desk clerk was not very friendly, for the price it was okay

Property is walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg attractions. The rooms were cleaned everyday along with replacing towels without having to ask. Front desk staff were very nice and helpful. We were late for check in due to not taking the time change into account and the front desk staff were very accommodating. Made for a stress free vacation.

Great location, great price, clean, friendly staff!! Not an updated hotel but worth the money... they just need to fix minor things...toilet kept running...very slow drain in the tub

It nice motel would stay there again great location and walking distance to the town

Pros: This place is within a couple of blocks/walking distance to the Gatlinburg strip, only a 15-20 minute drive to the national park, the beds are clean, there's a pool (which I didn't use but saw plenty of people using), the AC was ice cold, it had a decent little mini fridge and microwave, it smelled pleasantly of cleaning supplies, and it's a good price point. Cons: this hotel is very run down and in need of repair. The lamp shades were all broken, the towel rack was torn off the bathroom wall, there were scratch marks on the bathroom door, the walls were so thin I was woken up every night by a baby crying in the next room, the bed was really firm, the room was really damp, the ac unit was really loud and the carpet felt very unclean/sticky. So just know what you're getting into and make sure what you need in a hotel aligns with what this hotel offers. I was just in the area to hike the national park and take some pictures. I had considered staying at a hostel or airbnb but really wanted a private bathroom, a secure space and somewhere I knew I could charge my electronics. This hotel delivered what I was looking for so I would consider staying here again. As far as recommendations go I can only recommend knowing what you're getting into before you book.

No shower curtain in the bathroom. Blow dryer caught on fire. Was very clean though and in a great location. The lady at the front desk didn’t seem to want to be there and was marginally nice at best. But for the price and location i would rate it 4/5.

I loved the location for sure! Away from the main strip yet so close! And a back road in so you dont have to be in the traffic the entire time!

Nice clean hotel excellent location excellent price

The room was clean..the location is older but real close to a lot of the attractions..many within walking distance. The employees were very nice and friendly.

Good place to stay if you do not want to pay for breakfast you won't eat. Reasonable priced for quality of facility. Close to main strip for walking.

Good experience downtown was busy but enjoyed going up in the mountains.

Nice location. Good services for the money that you pay. In general is not bad

The hotel is a little outdated, but for the price you can't really complain. It's clean, and it's very close to the strip. The rooms are fairly large, but the bathrooms are tiny. The beds were comfortable, and the TV worked just fine. Did not notice any issues with noise, nor any other distractions. The staff were very friendly, and I really have no issues with a place. I would have no problem staying here again.

Room was large with a king bed, couch, chair and small table. King bed was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is very conveniently located to the main strip in Gatlinburg. You are able to be in The Village in only a couple of minutes. Hotel staff were very accommodating and nice. Hot water was a bit of an issue on a couple mornings and the bathroom was very small. The heated flooring in the bathroom was a very nice feature! The bed was very firm. The walls and doors are very thin allowing all sounds and noises to easily travel from the outside or from room to room. Only one ice machine in working order for the entire hotel and it didn't work very well. The light above the sink only worked occasionally. Nice size and cold fridge. And, the LCD TV was a nice size. Overall, given the price, pleasant staff, and location, I would recommend to others.

It was a great place to sleep.

Very large room with fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Less than a five minute walk from the strip with all the shopping and restaurants. Very little traffic by hotel making it very peaceful and quiet yet very close to all activities.

What room were you in? We do have a pest control company and spray regularly, however, since you are in the wooded area, they sometimes get in. Please let us know which room so we can follow up and make sure it gets sprayed really well.
