Stayed here with my girlfriend during our spring break and I'm really disappointed. Before i get into the cons, I will breifly list the good things.
+ Free Breakfast
+ Comfy Bed and Clean Room (no noisy neighbors either)
+ HDTV with plenty of channels
There are two major reasons i would not stay here again. The first major issue is the fact that everyone is smoking. I know that smoking is fairly common in Tennessee, but the hotel lobby and elevators both reeked of smoke. The hotels appearance is a little underwhelming and then to realize how bad everything stinks is a huge disappointment. It says its a smoke free hotel, and theres also a sign listed in the hotel that says "no smoking within 10 feet of the hotel," but none of that matters. The employees and visitors alike smoke right outside the lobby door and it carries into the lobby and elevator.
The second reason is that there is an ear piercing noise in the pool/hottub area. It is IMPOSSIBLE to enjoy the pool/hottub when it sounds like theres a siren next to your ear.
I took this trip to surprise my girlfriend, and although we had an excellent time in Gatlinburg/Pidgeon Forge, the hotel was definitely a disappointment. Would not stay here again
