"Close to downtown"

This place was clean and breakfast was included. The cement steps are falling apart and the elevator to go get ice was kind of creepy. The bed was comfortable. It is not a five star but it is nice. Our balcony looked out at the pool.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and room was clean and bright. This hotel is within walking distance of the main street and many restaurants. My only complaint would be the breakfast offered at this hotel it lacked choices and was not as good as other hotels we have stayed.

"Not a bad place to stay for price and location!"

Decent place to stay, excellent location. The room has been decently renovated, although the tv and the fridge are rather small. Walking distance to Ober Gatlinburg and other restaurants. Compared to other places in Gatlinburg we’ve stayed, it’s definitely decent for the price and location!

"Surprising gem"

We stayed 2 nights while visitingThe Smokey Mountains. It was a pleasant surprise to find modern, updated rooms with wood floors, fireplace, and tiled bathroom. The beds were so plush and comfortable. The decor was great too. The pool was well kept and the front desk staff was extremely helpful. Friendly and accommodating. Best of all, it was within walking distance to all the action on the strip. If we ever get to Gatlinburg again I would definately stay here again and the price couldn't be beat at less than a hundred a night.
