We went to Pigeon Forge for a work related Christmas party. When we arrived my husband waited in line for 40 minutes listening to others complain about their rooms. The outside appeared to be under some kind of remodeling effort. We had to step around buckets of paint to get to the door. We opened the door and the smell...

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times in the past year. It is safe, clean, and a great price. They are currently updating the paint and fixing the rooms up. It is not the best, not the worst. Free breakfast and nice staff.

First time here and the room was clean. The beds were not as comfortable as I would like but were fine. The staff is excellent! Keep in mind that this is an older hotel/motel. It is in the heart of EVERYTHING and close to any store or eatery you could imagine. All is within waling distance.

Stayed here 2 nights on a family trip. I should have known the price was too good to be true. Pictures are totally deceptive! The rooms are outdated, musty, and just downright gross. Our "nonsmoking" room smelled like stale cigarettes, the airconditioner had what appeared to be mold growing on it, and that was just the inside of the room....

Room was clean. Bed slept great. The sink was clogged and slow to drain out. Light bulb was burned out. Rate was very reasonable. I used a Groupon. Location ideal to area attractions. Parking was crowded. Location was ideal and convenient to area attractions.

My 14 year-old daughter, 21 year-old son and his girlfriend stayed on a Friday night since we weren't checking into our cabin in Gatlinburg until Saturday afternoon. We had reservations, it was inexpensive so I was not expecting much. We were very pleased! We walked over to the Islands and ate at Paula Deen's restaurant and were able to walk...

My title kinda says it all. The beds were comfy, we were tired so that helped. The room was old. The toilet seat was loose and wonky, one of the dresser drawers was busted, the tissue dispenser was empty, there was no drain plug in the sink, etc etc. There were also hardly any power plugs in the room, which...
