I will preface this review by saying I wasn't expecting much from a Gatlinburg Hotel since I visited before and know its an older tourist town. We got a good price using hotwire for a 1 king bedroom months prior to our stay. Upon check-in we were told there was no more kings but she offered to put us in a queen bed with a hot tub room. I thought this sounded like a fair exchange. The hotel is a typical enter-from-outside room with outdated decor, stained carpets and ugly 80's sheets. The hot tub was clean and provided some relaxation. They still have tube TV's with limited cable. There is 2 outdoor pools (1 heated) which appeared to be well kept. The location is actually very good and right off the beaten path of the parkway with shops/restaurants/tourist traps. There is also a restaurant/bar at the hotel but it never appeared to be busy...for a reason. Overall I would recommend this place for someone looking for a budget hotel and good location. There is nothing that will "WOW" you about this place, but it provided an ample stay for our trip.
