I picked this location after reading the reviews. Was not disappointed. My boyfriend and I arrived an hour before check in. The lady in the office gave us our parking pass so we could walk around and get lunch while we waited on our room. Stayed in 203 a Deluxe King room. It was clean, very quiet and the Jacuzzi...

My husband and I stayed last August 2012 for our second honeymoon. We enjoyed the little walk away from the main strip. The rooms were clean and affordable. Will return this year!! The service was very nice and polite enjoyed the whole stay. We was only going to stay for 2 nights and extended our stay for an additional night.

This is one of the places I love to stay in Gatlinburg. The staff is very friendly and attentive to any need you have during your stay...from the owners, to the front desk staff, to the housekeepers. Don't expect anything fancy, this is a small local family-owned place very close to the strip in Gatlinburg. The rooms are very clean...

We were very pleased with the room. More than we expected and clean. The bathroom needed a quick touch up but that was handled with a phone call. We ended up having to leave a day early due to an emergency and they were nice enough to refund us a night. We will definitely be back!

This was a nice little hotel just a block away from downtown Gatlinburg. My husband and I just stayed there last Saturday night. We rented a king sized handicapped room, which we did not realize until we got there (must have checked the wrong box on our reservation, because it clearly said that on the website. oops). It was a...

We typically do cabins but our spring break trip was extremely last minute and this was the only place available. So this was our first time ever staying in a hotel, no offense especially a cheap one because I am a bit of a germ-a-phobe. That being said, the room (207) was pretty clean though I wish they would have...

We stayed in the two room condos with a kitchen (#2004). The room was extremely clean and well decorated. If you plan on cooking you may need a few things. There was a small skillet and a few small pots and pans. Plenty of silverware, plates and glasses. There was one 9x13 casserole dish but no cookie sheets or pizza...

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the condominium. I will look into getting more pans for the units. I have also contacted our internet guru and he is coming to check out the wireless connection to see what the problem is with the speed. This in not something we normally have complaints about. We hope that you will stay with...

i have read some of the reviews and they are somewhat critical. The only thing bad I can say about the room is it needs updated. Don't get me wrong, everything in the room was in good shape and didn't give off a run down vibe at all. The TV was not a flat screen, however if you go on...
