Reviewed 16 September 2013

We found this gem entirely by accident while visiting Gatlinburg for the first time. I just told my husband "turn in here" and I am so glad I did! The staff was so very friendly and helpful and the room was clean with the feel of long ago but included the comfort of a new mattress and a great flat screen TV and a balcony to check out the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

My husband & I stayed here for the first time in Sept 2013, and we will be staying many more times. The rooms have a "feel of the past" decor, it felt very comforting with extra touches like the poem on the desk, "Sleep Sweetly". They offer free breakfast (we did not try only because we are not breakfast eaters normally), the pool was great, and the location is perfect.

LisaNAllen,

Thank you soo much for your stay and kind review of our hotel! I am very pleased to see that you were completely satisfied with your stay. I hope you got a chance to see room 107 while you were here to see what all the rooms would look like after the remodel. We are going to try to upgrade while still keeping her southern charm. I hope that you and your family will come back and see us real soon!

Thanks,

Gary Bailey

Stayed here after finding it highly ranked on Tripadvisor. Plan to ALWAYS stay here when in Gatlinburg! The location is perfect...none better. The staff extremely nice. The cleanliness is the best I have ever seen! But the kicker is the decor. Very retro, vintage. It felt like being in my grandma's house! Unbelievable ambiance! I stay in lots of hotels and can't remember one from the other. NEVER will forget this!!! I LOVED THIS!!!! STAY HERE....you will not be disappointed! So CLEAN!!!

Lindy031,
Thank you for your wonderful review of the Gatlinburg Inn. You are right! We are far from a "cookie cutter" hotel! I am very glad to hear that you were treated well by our wonderful staff!

I hope that you and your family will come back and stay with us again in the near future!

Thanks!

This is the most charming hotel I have ever stayed in. It is a wonderful step back in time. The staff (all) are very gracious and tend to your every need. The inn is very clean and well kept for a hotel built in 1938. They have a nice pool, serve a good breakfast, greet you with a smile everyday of your stay and have a porch full of rocking chairs. Give it a try, I do not think you will be disappointed. By the way it was in room 388 that the song "Rocky Top" was written. This is where I am staying tonight and I already have reservations for New Years!

My grandson and I stayed here 4 days recently and was very HAPPY with our stay. I loved the hospitality these folks show, it was like being home. The rooms are very clean and the beds were great . Yes, it is a older motel, but I liked the fact it takes you back to a simpler time and they keep this place up inside and out. It is right on the drag at ripleys believe it or not, location couldn,t be better. The song Rocky Top was written here in room 388. They have a full breakfast from 7 to 10 including eggs,sausage links,pancakes,cerals,pastries,ect.,juices,coffees, all free in your stay. I highly RECOMMEND Gatlinburg Inn . Looking forward to going back to this wonderful place. Thank you to the staff for making our stay so great!
