Econo Lodge Inn & Suites
Ranked #24 of 78 Hotels in Gatlinburg
Reviewed 23 January 2014

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!

Room Tip: This review is for room 105. This was on the bottom floor.

I’ve stayed in nicer places, but I’ve also stayed in FAR worse places that cost three times as much!

This hotel has a great location within a three-minute walk to the convention center and about the same walk to the main strip through the heart of Gatlinburg.

Our rooms were across from the main building, so it was a little bit of a walk to get breakfast, and there was no covering between the two buildings (it rained on one of the days), and the view from our room wasn’t desirable, but those are VERY minor issues.

What matters is are the rooms very clean (they were), are the beds comfortable (they were), is the breakfast good (it was ... hard to complain about Krispy Kreme donuts!!!) and is the staff courteous (she was). The rooms are basic (two beds, a dresser, a desk and a TV in ours ... another group had a fireplace in their room).

Another HUGE plus for me was free wi-fi. At most hotels the Internet runs slow -- if you can connect at all -- and you have to pay for access. The wi-fi was BLAZING fast. We had more than 30 teenagers in our group and most if not all had iPods and iPhones and were using the Internet, and it didn’t hiccup one single time.

If you don’t care about a rustic log cabin or a view and just want a decent, friendly place to stay, you have to put this hotel into the mix. I promise you could do far worse.

Room Tip: A room in the "main building" is a shorter walk to the lobby area where breakfast is serve...

I travel a lot for business so I've stayed in hotels hundreds of times but I felt the managers at this site were more than accomodating. We had a two night stay with my mom and niece. We have to travel with my mom's poodle because it takes insulin. The manager gave us an extreemly large ground floor room with fireplace. We also were given great suggestions for shows and hotels. The location was excellent. The place is fairly clean.

Every member of staff I've come across in this hotel has been wonderful. Great value for a mini vacation. The rooms were clean abet somewhat outdated (they are current renovating some rooms when we were there). Close to everything. We were able to walk to all the major attractions in Winter without freezing! We have no complaints.

My boyfriend and I just came back from a roadtrip and stayed in Gatlinburg here. Upon checkin the staff was extremely friendly. The room was a great price and she even upgraded us to a room with a fireplace. The room was very clean and large. Its location is PERFECT right down the street from the town. We parked the car and spent the day and night on the town. We definitely recommend staying here and will again!

This was a nice place to stay! We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa. Very spacious room. Great for a family of 5! Breakfast was fine. Had all you need to get your day started. Check-in was easy and room seemed clean. Would stay here again!

Room Tip: The suites have plenty of room for a family of 5!
