Glenstone Lodge
Ranked #39 of 78 Hotels in Gatlinburg
Reviewed 14 November 2013

This hotel is somewhat older and as an older establishment does have some defects but it has one of the most beautiful indoor swimming pools I have seen in a hotel with such a moderate nightly fee. The staff were excellent and the food at the buffet breakfast was wonderful. I will definitely stay here again and again.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main hotel are nicer and quieter than those on the outer section.

Great value for your money. Great indoor pool. Great location for walking to attractions in Gatlinburg. I would recommend this property to anyone coming to Gatlinburg or surrounding areas. We actually used this location as a base to see different waterfalls in southwestern NC. We were able to see about 10 of 16 published falls there. The most spectacular of them all was Whitewater Falls. It is 411 feet tall and is the tallest east of the Mississippi. I will definitely stay here again.

I only stayed one night at the Glenstone. The location was perfect, just off the Gatlinburg strip and close to my favorite Roaring Fork Motor trail. They have a large lobby with a glass elevator a breakfast buffet for $8.95 (I had my own food ). For October the price was quite reasonable and the room was large. The only complaint I had was the elevator in the back was broken and I had to walk up 3 flights of stairs when I had to park in the back. I got lucky and parked in the front for check out. I'd stay again.

Room Tip: Pool side room is nice but it may be noisy til 11 pm.

My wife found a coupon on Groupon for this place and we wanted to go and check out the fall colors in the Smokey Mountains. Our daughter loves to swim, so it seemed like a great place. We stayed on Monday-Wednesday at the end of October 2013. We were put into room 149, right behind the waterfall. That was the only complaint that we really had was that the waterfall is noisy when it is on, which is from afternoon until around 11 pm. We have a toddler who takes a nap, so it was loud, but she slept through it.
The room was older and not remodeled. But, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. We requested a room with a fridge and they gave us one.

The pool is really nice. There is an upper and lower. The bad thing about the upper is that, while it is warmer than the lower, it is 7' deep at its shallowest, so not good for little ones. We swam two of the three days.

This lodge is about 1/2 mile walk from the heart of Gatlinburg. We walked it several times, with a 4 year old and pushing a stroller and it was no problem. My wife and I actually enjoyed the walk.

There is a breakfast restaurant with a buffet for $8.99 that is very good. We ate at it both times. We were going to try a different restaurant on Wednesday, but decided that we'd pay the same price, but not for the choices the buffet has.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you go on the outside, you will have to walk outside to access the indoor pool. If you get a room...

Nice hotel close to the center of Gatlinburg, nothing fancy though. Rooms and facilities are a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. Somebody said they had problems with hot water - we didn't have any, we had hot water all the time. The pool was avery nice addition. The breakfast for $10 was ok.

The insulation is not that good, one night people next door were watching baseball and being loud, it almost felt like they were in our room.


Bottom line: it you need a clean and affordable hotel in a good location with friendly staff - Glenstone is a good option. If you need fancy, go elsewhere.

Not overlt impressed. Looked much nicer online. Thought it would be too good to be true and it was. Close to downtown Gatlinburg (less than a mile). But not impressed by cleanliness, the door has gaps in it so outside air gets in...including if someone is smoking outside, dead flies around window, heat/ac unit very loud, and tub & toilet drain sloooww. Staff is friendly though. I just needed a head in bead place...but will probably look elsewhere next time.

This was our 3rd stay here and we have not been disappointed. The rooms are clean, the beds are extremely comfortable and the staff are very friendly and knowledgable. Hotel is within walking distance of the downtown area, the heated indoor pool is great. Their buffet breakfast is good but slightly overpriced.
