This place is so old and outdated! The room was dark with old wood paneling. The bed was nasty. There was dirt all over the sheets. They obviously had not even been changed. We asked for clean sheets and changed them immediately. It is very close to everything and convenient, but for the price you pay, it should be clean and needs updating. I can't stand to sleep in a dirty bed.

Check out is 11 am. At 10:40 am they are banging on the door asking me to check out . Both mornings they done that

We’ve stayed here before and had always had an enjoyable stay but this time we did not. We saw several roaches in the bathroom. Just knowing there were bugs made my skin crawl. I had trouble sleeping that night. There were roaches in the shower, on the wall, and scurrying across the ground. The tile above the shower in the bathroom was partially open also and there was mold present.

Accessible to everything on our to do list

The price and location were good. Needs new liens you could tell they were clean just old and worn out looking. The couch had stains on it. So we did not sit on it as we were just there for the night.

The only thing I was not pleased with is not having a coffee pot!

This was our second stay here for a short family trip. We came back because the rooms, although dated, are clean and the price is very reasonable for the area. However, the beds are small and EXTREMELY uncomfortable, after three nights our backs were completely shot. My husband and I were quite "cozy" on the small bed. There was good water pressure in the shower, but care is to be taken with temperature control, too much of a nudge one way or another will either send you to the arctic or the inside of a volcano very quickly. Keep it in mind if traveling with little ones. I have begun to prefer places that have done away with carpeting. We have a rule to never go barefoot in a hotel/motel and this place is no exception. Who knows what's on the floor, again, something to consider if traveling with kids. The lighting in the room was horrible, I could turn all the lights on and still have trouble reading or applying makeup. Bring your own blow dryer, there's is the equivalent of a dog panting in your face. Now, parking. Is. Tight! If you have a large truck or rig you can almost forget it. All it takes is one fool who failed their driver's test to wreck it for three other people. Arrive early to get good parking, but also consider angled parking mixed with pickup trucks and about 10 feet of space behind you. You are going to hear everything going on in adjacent rooms, you get what you pay for, but it's clean.

Price, clean room for the money... location

Property is old but well kept and very clean..

Nothing

Everything was great.

Nice location on the parkway. Close to restaurants and the grocery store. The rooms have a decor that reminds me of the 70s. However, everything was clean and spotless.

The price was amazing for what you get. The only thing keeping this from being “excellent” is the pillows were really flimsy and they “when flat” quickly. Everything else was nice. When loved the location and the creek right behind the rooms.

5 days no housekeeping and no compensation. We paid full daily rate. King room was much smaller than advertised and without sofa, wouldn't fit in anyway. Also no compensation for cheating on us. The A/C was so noisy that we couldn'ts sleep even with ear buds. A/C was replaced next day with an other used A/C. Again no compensation for that. Room smelt mouldy and ceiling was damaged and interior run down.

Hotel requires a lot of work. Our bathroom needed to be completely redone, lots of mold and loose tiles. No issue with rest of the room

It's a roadside motel. It was ok for a couple nights while visiting Dollywood but overpriced for what it is. You have to pay a quarter for Ice!? The rooms smell like smoke. And the property is facing/shares a parking lot with a store selling every type of confederate flag you can imagine. The room had water damage and hasn't been updated since the 80s for sure. Again, its fine for a night or two as you travel through just don't overpay for its "Location" to Dollywood...

I really like the stepping back in time. Real room keys. Above fair for a fair price.
