“Great location away from the hub bub”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Very nice hotel, neat and clean. Has great amenities such as the outdoor and indoor swimming pools. The hotel is situated right before you head around the mountain to Pigeon Forge or if you're going the other direction, it's away from the congestion and onslaught of people in downtown Gatlinburg. You can take the trolley to downtown Gatlinburg or walk it---it's about 1.5 miles. We did both and it was fine. There is also miniature golf on the corner in the parking lot of the hotel. Very convenient. The hotel offered a free breakfast. Wasn't very tasty, but it was still nice to have something that would carry us over until lunch. There weren't any restaurants on-site. The closest was the pancake house next door. We tried to go there later in the day to find out they close at 1pm. To get to a restaurant, you have to take the trolley, walk 1.5 miles or take your car. I would definitely stay here again. Everyone was very nice and accommodating.

Clean, with friendly staff and easy transportation to downtown. It was on the outskirts of the busy hustle and bustle but very easy to get to Pigeon Forge. Loved it here! The free breakfast made it easy to start our day and everyone was more than helpful. We will be back!

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It was close to downtown Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountain Visitor Center. It's also on the main roadway to Pigeon Forge. The location made it easy for us to go back and forth the different sites and activities. Downtown Gatlinburg is a bit of a distance but the Trolley stop is right in the hotel parking lot. The hotel itself is typical of a Fairfield Inn & Suites, room was clean and service good.

We stayed here for 1 night only. We got in late to check-in and left early the next morning to check-out. We are Marriott reward members so we stay in Marriott hotels all over the country. This was by far my least favorite Marriott hotel that we've ever stayed at. The rooms were extremely small and the bathroom was very old and not kept up well. The hotel itself was small inside and the hallways and other areas were very tight.

On a positive note, the staff who checked us in and out was very nice. The complimentary breakfast was very nice too. Hot and cold foods were served in a clean neat area.

The location was good. Close to all the sights of Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg.

Room Tip: No particular info about room location.

Second time staying at this property (1st time was 6yrs ago). Location is perfect if you want to be close to downtown without being in the middle of downtown. Trolley service right in the hotel parking lot. I would say this hotel is good not necessarily very good as I rated it but better then an average rating. With that being said breakfast was clean and good. Would be nice if food prep area was a little bigger and perhaps had two waffler makers. Outdoor seating available but could use a few more tables. Laundry room clean and hotel offers free detergent and fabric softener sheets so no need to lug your own.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the back and next time would request a room with a balcony overlooking the mini...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is clean & comfortable. They are close enough to all the attractions to be very convenient (especially with the free trolley that stops here). Staff is friendly & helpful. Breakfast area is a bit cramped but tasty with decent options.
