A few friends and I booked the room here because of location. We get there and check-in only to be pissed. The pool was not working, we found blood on the sheets, floor and mattress. We found bugs in our beds then duck tape on everything. This place charged us each $90 for a POS room. Had to call our...

The last time we were in Gatlinburg we stayed at the Terrace as we always do. We rented one of the cabins by the river. They are small and a little rustic,just what I look for. They have good comfortable beds,cable,heat and air,swimming pool,but most of all,the sound of the river running by your porch. Open the windows and allow...

while we were staying at the Terrace Inn on the water, in Gatlinburg, our digital camera was stolen from our suitcase. Room was comfortable, but badly in need of remodeling: outside chairs had broken seats, inside doors were dirty and needing paint, etc. We used to stay there when there were two gentlemen that ran the hotel, but now there...

We were disappointed from the very beginning: had to wait 3 - 5 mins for hot water in the sink, the bottom sheet was not a true buttom sheet....it was a top sheet and the bed was made backwards, the heater was so loud we couldn't sleep, so we bundled up and slept in the cold, our room was not...

Were pretty easy going people, so if we pay a very cheap price then we expect that the room wont be that good. The room was clean and that's about all I can really say about this establishment. Yes its on the water and that part was ok too. Bed sheets were made for a different size bed I am...

We wanted to stay in the heart of Gatlinburg where we didn't need to drive, that's the best thing about it. The room is not clean, it smells and the bed doesn't even have fitted sheets, just one flat sheet that hangs barely over the edge of the mattress. Our beds were not even made on the second day, but...

We stopped in and asked about rates. The person ar the desk gave us 2 keys to let us check out a cabin and a hotel room before committing. We decided to stay in the cabin and they gave us the whole thing for the price of one of the rooms as posted. This is not a luxury hotel but...

This hotel is not bad at all from my stay. We booked the hotel solely based on the online pictures, we didnt think of reading the reviews. After reading the reviews, we were pretty reluctant on coming here, and almost cancelled the reservations. When we got here, the man at the front checking us in was very friendly. The actual...
