I've always been the kind of person who picks a hotel by price. From now on I think I will pick a Hampton, based on this experience. Although we were in town for a car show in Pigeon Forge, this was a great location for national park access - I much prefer Gatlinburg to P.F. anyway and it's a short drive down the road.
Everyone at the hotel was as nice as can be and they had coffee and whole fruit 24/7 in the breakfast area. The lobby had a nice lodge feel to it, the parking easy with a 2 floor deck, and a newly renovated pool/hot tub area next to a creek. Currently, Gatlinburg is doing road construction to place all of their utility lines underground. The construction is at the hotel front right now but we had no problem whatsoever with getting in and out or walking around.
The room (4th floor) was clean other than a typical hotel carpet that looks like it needs a deep cleaning - however, they are in the process of redoing all the rooms so hopefully cleaning or replacing carpet is on the list! New TV in the room and the bathroom had a great vanity with lots of shelving for all our toiletries. Seriously - I hate stacking all my stuff up and trying not to knock it all in the sink. Bed felt fresh and clean and I love that Hampton boasts of a clean bedspread for every guest. Plenty of towels and - miracle of miracles - no random hair on them! Those three things are what I hate most about hotels and this one managed to fix all three!
Breakfast was free and awesome. Several kinds of fruit, yogurt, waffles, baked goods (including Krispy Kreme this morning), cereals, hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausage...it was good. The man working in the morning was so friendly and helpful, including wrestling my waffle out of the iron for me. I meant to check out the pancake house across the street during the trip, but why bother with all of this?
It's hard for me to find hotels where I can be totally comfortable because I'm always worried about cleanliness, bugs, noise, security, etc. I LOVED this hotel and the people working there. Even for Pigeon Forge events six miles down the road, I will continue to stay here.
