We have a couple of favorites all within walking distance. We enjoy staying at Old Creek Lodge, it is newly renovated and all rooms over the creek. We also like Riverhouse motor lodge, it is an older facility, mom/pop place but super nice and kinda rustic. It reminds us of staying in a cabin but being downtown. It too has large balconies over the river. Both of these hotels are on river rd. which is one street behind the parkway (very short walk) it is much quieter and very peaceful but steps away from all the action. When were on a tight budget we stay at Quality inn Creekside, it is clean and location is perfect but could use some updating. We also get a discount there so using that on top of their low prices makes it hard to resist.

Please let us know if you have questions, most hotels are within walking distance to the shops/restaurants but some more so than others. You could check out this website for a "virtual tour" of the parkway to give you an idea of how the city is laid out.

Check out the Clarion. It's right on the main drag, across from the aerial tram that goes up the ski mountain. Nice rooms, free parking, free cooked-to-order breakfast with omelette bar, and some nice restaurants within a block, including Calhoun's, which has great steak and ribs. Almost all of Gatlinburg's shops and downtown attractions are also within a few blocks walking distance. We like there because we can park the car and never have to get in it again, except to travel into the park or outside of Gatlinburg.

We love the Clarion also. Hampton Inn is another nice hotel with rooms overlooking a small stream.

There's also a Hilton Garden Inn that's only a few years old.

We have just returned from Gatlinburg. We stayed one night in town before heading for a cabin. We had a very pleasant stay at Jack Huffs (at this time #2 tripadvisor rated hotel in Gatlinburg.) Price was very reasonable. Spotlessly clean; Comfortable bed and friendly staff. Right behind the village (a lovely please to explore and shop...don't miss the Donut Friar) and steps away from the Parkway and all the excitement. Here are the tripadvisor reviews

We love to stay at Hampton Inn, in Gatlinburg, you can park your car and walk all over town. The hotel is very clean and the staff is friendly.

The Hampton is recently undergone a remodel and is right in the middle of the action and is affordable. I really like the Clarion myself. It is a little costly at times but well worth it. This property too has recently been renovated.

I second Old Creek Lodge. It's our new favorite in Gatlinburg.

The Marshall's Creek Rest Motel is one of our favorites.

We have posted a review a few years back on this website.
