We have stayed here several times over the last couple years. They have really updated and remodeled to improve the property. The location of the hotel is great. Can walk to many great restaurants or just walk around town.

Front desk staff not well informed. Awful, all pre-packaged "free breakfast". Housekeeping did not pick up used towels or trash. Had to hunt for outlet for coffee maker in room. Exterior wood door had cracks and could see daylight. Grossly overpriced.

Great location with newly renovated rooms. Front desk and cleaning staff were very friendly. Fire place in room was a nice add feature that we used even in September. Will definitely be coming back and would recommend to anyone who is looking to stay in downtown Gatlinburg.
