“Outstanding Location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2009

We planned a short trip away from everything in early May. I searched extensively for an economical place to stay on the strip. After reading reviews here, we thought we would give RTHM a try.

We had a king room (#129) all the way in the back. It was very unbusy and fairly quiet. This hotel is right on the parkway, so there is some noise, especially in the mornings. There is ample parking, which is nice, since we avoided ever paying for parking in Gatlinburg. We stayed 3 nights, Fri and Sat night at $59 and Sun night at $39. You can't beat that with a stick.

There is no breakfast, but there is a Flapjack's right down the street, on the other side. Or a McDonald's near the Skylift, for a more economical breakfast.

This is important to note: They are in the process of building a Hilton hotel right behind the RTHM. The beeping of the construction trucks begins around 7:30 am, 7 days a week. It was really annoying. At times, it sounded like the trucks were in our bathroom.

Overall, the room was clean and the bed was big and comfortable. The TV is kind of small and the room could use some updating, especially the bathroom. This is a 70s hotel, and the colors prove it...lol! We were happy with it and would stay again.

We had stayed at the RTHM several years ago and based on TA reviews we tried it again.

We got a mid week rate of $49, Fri was $59. room had 2 full size beds, mini fridge, cofee pot, telephone, cable tv. The best were very comfy. The wireless internet connection was great.

The best part for me was that we requested a nonsmoking room, the door had an insignia designating it was a non smoking room, we open the door..thank God!! the room smelled fresh,like no one had EVER smoked in it. Many times at other hotels we request non smoking and the room still stinks of smoke.

My wife felt that the bathroom was bit small but I am a big guy and I had no problem with it. When I get a great room directly on the parkway for $49. I guss that erased the bathroom size from my mind.
The bathroom looked like it had just been remodled, the tub caulk was so white it made me notice, "man . that is some clean ,white tub caulk. "

The front desk was very friendly, we arrived "way" early and she let us check in any way ( I must looked like I needed the rest)
.
The house keeper, I think her name was peggy, did and awesome job on our room and was very nice also.

Saturday morning I tried to get a better rate than the 59.00 but the price was firm, you can blame a guy for trying. Since we didnt get the deal of a life time on the SAturday rate we checke out as planned, very happy with every aspect of our stay at RTHM.

My husband and I travel to the gatlinburg at least once a year. We spend at least one night in a hotel before checking into a cabin. This hotel is one of the nicer hotels we have stayed in on the strip ~ ~ ~ it was very clean and no weird smells!!! We were so impressed that we went back to this hotel after checking out of our cabin and stayed for another 2 nights :-) It is in a good location in walking distance to most anything on the strip. The pancake house across the street is one of the best!

We visit Gatlinburg at least 2 to 3 times a year. A couple of years ago a friend told us about the Royal Townhouse and we tried it. Now, we just wouldn't stay anywhere else. Whenever I call for reservations, Robin Juvinall, the manager answers the phone. She is always professional, courteous, and fills me in on what's going on in Gatlinburg while I'm there. It's like talking to a friend. Then, because it is usually late when we arrive, Erik Mauldin checks us in. He always greets us with a smile, remembers our name and once again makes us feel welcomed. With both Robin and Erik it's like we are visiting friends. They make you want to stay with them . If that wasn't enough, the rooms are clean, spacious, and very convenient to restaurants and shops. They never fail to ask if there is anything else you need or if they can do anything to make your stay more enjoyable.
After staying here the first time, we will never stay anywhere else in Gatlinburg.

Lets start by this hotel is not brand new, however , it is very clean.
The bed linens are always crisp and I was told that the bedspreads are washed once a week... wow.. the pool is on the roof,,, what a view... my family loves the price,, it's more realistic than some of those around it... it is older with dated decor... but worth a try....

  • Liked — the clean rooms, the view from the pool

We began taking our two oldest grandchildren (at the time ages 3 and 5) to the Smoky Mountains in 2006. Because of the convenient location, we chose the Royal Townhouse as our motel. The children loved it and talked about it for months afterwards. They especially loved the pool on the roof as they called it. Each year since when we began making plans they insisted on staying at the place with the "pool on the roof". We have experienced nothing but good, friendly service from the staff and very affordable rates. The building is old and some new decorating, etc. would be nice but it is clean and quiet. I am sure we will be back once again next spring with our two little ones in tow. They will settle for nothing less.

  • Liked — Friendly, courteous staff
  • Disliked — Television didn't have good reception but then who has time to watch anywy?
