“Only a 2.5 hour stay!”
Reviewed 30 October 2009

Checked in 8 PM and departed at 10:30 PM. Room smelled horrible... sheets looked dirty... bugs dead in bathroom... wife and I had the "heebee geebees" and could not even think about taking off our clothes to sleep... so got up, turned the key in to the night clerk and drove 3 hours home... lost $80+ dollars and a nights sleep, but it was a nightmare of a place!‎

My family and I stayed at The Lodge for the weekend while visiting some friends. The staff was very kind. Bill and Cindy went out of thier way to make us comfortable. We really felt like they were happy to have us, unlike one of the other motels we looked at.
We have 3 children under 12. The pool was nice as well as the patio's. The rooms were clean. We look forward to going again next year.

Our room was clean and had a balcony with rocking chairs and a view of the pool. For the money we were very pleased, it didn't cost a fortune and we got to visit the Great Smoky Mtns National Park, Cherokee and Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. The staff could not have been better, because we locked our keys in the car and they bent over backwards to help us, gave us a late check-out that day. Nice people.

Upon entering our room, it smelled of mildew. After a couple of days of hoping the cleaning crew would correct this, I trekked to the local CVS and purchased Tilex and Lysol. I found the shower curtain was the culprit. After a couple of thorough sprays, the smell was gone. I also noticed there was a water leak on the other side of the shower wall. The tub would not drain well; so your showers would soon turn into baths. Although the rugs looked clean, it left black residue on our socks. Pillows were old and offered no support. Beds are horribly stiff. I couldn't wait to get into my own bed.

The staff was very pleasant, courteous, and polite. I only stayed there because I was obligated to stay.

The "Lodge" I remember through the years as a get away, it has now become a resisdence for Hispanic workers. The lawns and pool area are beautiful but the rooms have so sadly gone down hill, some of the electrical outlets didn't work, the frig didn't work and some light bulbs were blown.The beds were very dirty and stained, when we walked across the carpet, it left our feet dirty and sticky. The walls need a good cleaning and we had to clean the TV screen to enable viewing. I once loved "The Lodge" and have so many good memories, wish they could clean it up.

We had a wonderful stay. The rooms very cozy and very clean. It is no longer part of a chain, but independant owned. It is 100% American owned and operated. That is hard to find.

  • Liked — The outdoor Patio's!
  • Disliked — We had to leave!
