“Nice affordable option.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This is a no frills motel located across the Parkway from the Aquarium. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to do in town, and it is also near the trolly line. We were happy to find a clean affordable place in Gatlinburg which seems harder to do these days. Yes, the bathrooms are small and it is an older place, so it may not be for you if you are wanting a luxury place to hang out. We just needed a place to sleep since we stayed busy during the day.The staff is very friendly. I know we will stay there again.

Room Tip: There are two floors and all rooms face the same direction toward the street.

My family stays here every time we go to Gatlinburg now. It is an older hotel that has been remodeled and is kept very clean. Being only a couple blocks from the strip is the big plus for us. Oh it also has two pools and the staff is the nicest you will find.

Comfortable beds, clean room, good room service, hot showers, everything working properly and cheap! Will stay again for sure. This was a very good experience for us. The rooms are a little thin though, I can hear what's going on in the rooms next to us which can be a little annoying. Other than that all was great!

This hotel is nothing special, but it is a great option for a cheap place to stay in Gatlinburg.

Pros: Super close to everything downtown, it is a short walk to get to all of these places to hang out. The front desk staff were very helpful and there are two different pools to choose from, one heated and one not.

Cons: I would say my only complaints were that the bathrooms were absolutely tiny and they claim that the rooms have been renovated, which may be partially true, but they have not been fully renovated as the carpets are not in the best shape...

Our room was quiet, clean and close to downtown action.The bathroom may be small but the sink is outside the bathroom. It was fine. TV was new and good reception. Beds were comfortable. Staff very friendly. Great value.

Being one of the cheaper hotels in town you expect quality to suffer but it does not here. The staff are extremely friendly, the rooms are very clean, and the large heated pool is great! I believe in recent years it has come under new ownership and has been getting updated over time. We had brand new beds and a beautiful smart tv in our room. There are new tile floors in the sink/bathroom area that are HEATED.

My only qualm was with the very small toilet/shower room, which doesn't have a vent and only a small window that doesn't lock very well, though the area behind the building where these windows are is locked up and difficult to get to from the outside.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are slightly nosier due to the main front door not being completely sealed at the...

My husband and I stayed here in the room behind the office In mid June 2014. Room was very nice, clean and the bed was comfortable. Not too soft. Cant stand soft beds! Loved walking out with our own private acess to the pool!! TV was very big for a motel. Staff was a pleasure. EXCELLENT location to everythting... Only complaint was that the bathroom was TINY. You had to move out of the way just to shut the door. We will stay here again most definatly :)
