We booked this hotel based on it's great reviews. I was still very skeptical about staying here because it's so close to the main Gatlinburg Strip and most hotels that close are pretty nasty...
We were absolutely pleasantly surprised!
First of all, the staff at the front desk was AWESOME. SO nice and helpful.
We booked a basic king room for (originally) 2 nights. It was very clean, smelled good and I was overall pretty impressed. VERY close to the main strip where the Ripley's Museum is. Perfect location for us. It's off the main strip, but a perfect walking distance. So you get to be close to everything without all the noise!
We ended up having to stay a third night due to some personal issues and the staff (particularly a woman named Pam) was beyond helpful.
I honestly would have been willing to pay MORE than the rate we paid to stay at this hotel I was so impressed! The room and bathroom IS smaller than most hotels (not tiny or anything), but we didn't mind. I'm going to add some pictures so you can see...
Breakfast is small, but it's there if you want it. They had a fresh waffle maker, donuts, cereal, coffee and juice. The waffles were actually REALLY good.
We definitely WILL be coming back to this hotel. We've found our new place to stay when we go down there! I highly recommend! Especially if you're looking for somewhere close to everything! I could see in a window to one of the other rooms and they had a suite with a sofa, two beds, fire place... Definitely want to check that out next time with the family!
