"poor experience"
June, 2018
Thought a hotel offered in conjunction with Dollywood would have higher standards. Carpet was so dirty our feet looked like we walked thru a garden. Hot water handle fell off in shower. Shower had mold along seams in wall. Towels were in need of repair. No dogs allowed but hair all over carpet. Asked to have carpet vacuumed really well...didn't happen. Not a box of tissues anywhere. Never cleaned the sink in 3 days. No one in office after midnight till 8am. Said 24 hours on line.

"overall good"
June, 2018
The room was clean and the beds were very comfy! very quit! The stairs that are carpeted could be updated or at least vacuumed daily. The breakfast was good the only thing i wish they offered some healthy choices to fresh fruit maybe oatmeal yogurt would have been great! I would stay again.

"Vacation Lodge"
May, 2018
This was the lodging offered in conjunction with Dollywood tickets. It was much better than the “chain” motel we stayed in the night before. The front desk clerk was very sweet. The room was clean and very well maintained. Our room had a balcony and even though we were facing towards the busy street, it was not loud. The continental breakfast was good. I would recommend this place to anyone.

It is and older business but has upgraded. The rooms are clean and nice. The pool needs some upgrading but was clean and usable. I will definitely stay here again when in the area. The staff are so polite and helpful and they made our stay awesome. The check in staff helped us with information on how to navigate the trolley. It has a breakfast buffet and a gas station right next to it within walking distance. Give it a try you wont be disappointed.

The room was great, the beds were very comfortable. The only thing I found wrong with the room, was the bathroom. I turned on the jets for the jacuzzi tub. Hair came out of the jets. They weren't clean, so we couldn't use the jacuzzi.

"Exterior is a little rustic, but the room was BIG and CLEAN"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 10, 2018 NEW
I booked online based on previous reviews. I was a little hesitant when I checked in because the outside looked a little rustic. However, when we got to the room we couldn't have been happier! The room was much bigger than a normal sized travel lodge hotel room and VERY clean! The bed was nice and comfortable and the bathroom was large as well. We wished we could have stayed for another night! The view was not the best as our room overlooked a gas station but that was no big deal. The staff was super friendly as well and the breakfast was good and hot! If given the option ask for room #200. We hope to come back and stay again!

"Great Breakfast, Location, & View"

Reviewed July 02, 2018 NEW
Don’t let the outdated lobby scare you off (it almost scared me off!) because this place is amazing for the value! A wonderful, fresh breakfast and the view of the mountains and strip was amazing! The location is perfect for anyone going to Dollywood, it’s a short walk to the trolley station. The only downside is the rooms seem a bit outdated and there was a slight smell of smoke around the entire building and the door was hard to lock. Other than that, it was great! Definitely give it a shot, I’m glad I did.
