Days Inn Gatlinburg on the River

Reviewed 11 September 2006

We had wanted to stay in Pigeon Forge for our post labor day trip to Dollywood, but there was a car show & the hotels which had vacancies were outrageously priced. So, we went on up the road to Gatlinburg & found there were a lot of places with reasonable rates. I am really leery of the Days Inn chain in general, but this is a really charming hotel, it was clean, the rooms were well laid out & overlooked the creek. It had a great pool, that graded from 2 feet to 5 feet deep & that was perfect for small children to play in. The hot tub was a nice feature also. The breakfast was a little bland, but all in all It was a really nice stay & we will stay there again.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We decided to stay at Rocky Waters because my parents stayed there 2 years ago and enjoyed it, this was before the new owners took over. We had reserved a king suite. When we arrived we were booked for a 2 queen room. We found out that when we had reserved it they knew we were only going to get a Queen room but they did not try to let us know even though they had our home phone, cell phone, email address, and home address. We had booked for Rocky Waters but actually stayed in Days Inn. We had a long walk to the front and it was not very close to anything. The room was old, dingy, and dirty. The carpet was pulling away from the door ways and was not clean. The bathroom was tiny and creepy. We decided to check out after talking to the owner Bobby Patel on the phone he offered to get us a King room for the 2nd night and give us 10% off for the first night. NO THANKS! We ended up going to Zoder's Inn for the 2nd night and had a wonderful time. There are a lot of hotels to choose from and I think that this is probably the worst. Even the staff hates it here! I believe this probably used to be a nice place but the new owners have not kept it up. The staff keeps quitting and the whole experience was no fun! The only thing I can say positive is that the staff was friendly. They felt sorry for us that we chose to stay here and completely understood that we wanted to leave. The only problem was they couldn't help us because they have no authority, just the rude, unhelpful owner.

We stayed at the Days Inn Gatlinburg for our anniversary trip in March of 2006. I was not at all impressed from the moment we walked in the door. The staff as we walked in did not greet us with a friendly attitude but more of a great we have been interupted again personality, one that they kept for the duration of our stay. This hotel has rooms with balconies that look out over the water. We stayed during the week and based on parking it seems as if the hotel had maybe 10-20% of its rooms occupied during our stay. We were given a room that looked out into the street at not a pretty view. It was quiet and that was good. Housekeeping was funny. There were cobwebs in the corners of our room. Excited about going out we forgot to hang the do not disturb sign to keep the maids out. Well... they went in and made the bed THATS ALL. The best part is the bed had rather personal items on it that they moved. However they did not get obvious garbage and empty plastic cup out of the floor or wet towels out of the bathroom. The hotel did not affect how much fun we had in Gatlinburg and we will return just no to the Days Inn.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for a week before she went back to college. We loved the stay. I booked the room from the day's inn website and we got a great deal on the room. I think we payed 30-40 a night, but that was with my military discount.
The room was very nice sized and the bed was very comfy. Our room had a nice balcony over looking the stream. The hotel is maybe a 5 minute walk from the main strip, so it's far enough away to be quieter than most the downtown hotels, but close enough that you never need to take your car except to go to the mountains.
I loved all the shops and all the dinner shows. I highly recommend going to the dixie stampede show. We both loved it. It's pricey, around $100 for the 2 of us, but it was worth every penney of it. The show is about two, two and a half hours long. The show is great and the food was perfect.
I will be going back to Gatlinburg around march 2006 and staying at the day's inn again.
