Econo Lodge Inn & Suites
Ranked #24 of 78 Hotels in Gatlinburg
Reviewed 30 July 2013 via mobile

First of all, you are in an amazing location steps away from the Gatlinburg strip and the Great Smokey Mountains. You don't need a flat screen tv with 2000 channels. The room is older, but we stayed in 201 which was HUGE and had a view of the pool for $90 including taxes. It had a clean shower, two comfy queen beds, a sofa and table and chairs, a fireplace, dresser, tv, fridge and microwave. The air conditioning worked perfectly, housekeeping cleaned everything for when we were back every evening and the pool helped work out the sore muscles after long hikes.
So it is older and the breakfast is pretty much doughnuts and coffee. Think about why you are going on vacation. If it is to stay in the hotel room and watch tv all day and night, book a cabin in the woods. If it is to be clean and comfortable and have loads of space (if you book the right room) for nights on your trip to SEE AND DO THINGS stay HERE.

We are pleased that our suite worked out so well for you and your party. We are making improvements with our rooms each and everyday. The next time you come back we might have that flat screen TV in your favorite room. Thank you for all the kind words and taking the time to write this review. See you on your next visit to the Smoky Mountains.

My wife and I visit Gatlinburg at least once a month and have stayed at several different hotels there. This trip I decided to go with a hotel that was a bit "more economical". I was a bit worried that this hotel would not meet our expectations given the nightly rates but decided to try it anyways. This is a place we will definitely stay at again. Its location is very close to the main strip and all that downtown Gatlinburg has to offer Your walk to the strip is less than 2-3 minutes. I will suggest that you plan your route to the hotel by using back streets as the main road through Gatlinburg gets extremely packed during the afternoon/evening hours. As far as our room goes, it was very clean, neat and quite. There was a balcony but the view from it was not great. We did not use the pool but it appeared to be clean as we walked by it. They offer free breakfast but we opted to eat at one of the many pancake houses in Gatlinburg. I don't think their breakfast is anything spectacular but given the low nightly rates we paid, I don't think it would have been a big deal. Can't wait for our next trip.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights during July 2013. We wanted a location close to the action but also wanted a quiet hotel. The location of this hotel is perfect, a few steps from the Parkway. Our room was very clean, as was the pool and breakfast areas. All the staff was very friendly and polite. We can't wait to visit again!

My wife and I spent from 7/10/13 until 7/14/13 at the hotel while I attended Christmas Expo. The first room they put us in smelled and for good reason. The A/C unit was leaking into the room and on the carpet. The staff was great and got us moved to a new room quickly. The new room had a cardkey reader that needed to be reprogrammed which they took care of the next day. Bathroom's smelled musky like they had mold at one time although none was present at the time we were there. Tubs are jetted and the one in our room was inoperable and the jets looked like they where never cleaned. My wife and I went down to Walgreens and bought bathroom cleaner to clean the bathroom where we felt comfortable to use it during our stay. For this to be a Choice Hotel brand, it was dated for sure. Some people we met at Christmas Expo were staying in the hotel as well and while visiting with them, my wide and I noticed a lot of the same.
All in all, the hotel was in a great location and for the price, we survived our stay. Even with everything that we experienced, its still a good enough hotel that I would recommend it to others.

Let me first say the hotel location is awesome and the price is VERY reasonable as well. The front desk help is super friendly. Is it dated: VERY much so. Sheets were clean, but I immediately tossed the bedspread on the floor - wasn't going to be using it. The rooms located in the building behind the main hotel are spacious. The rooms located near the pool (main section) the bathrooms are TIGHT, but main sleeping area average. Some of the outlets didn't work in the one of the rooms we stayed in.
