Great Front Desk Staff

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: Location, front desk staff.
Cons: Yes, listed above.
Location: About a block off the main strip in Gatlinburg, so ideal location. That's why we booked the room.
I had some issues with this property. Our room was 404. Separate building with parking on first floor. Good elevator. There was no decor in the room. Fully half of the few outlets did not work (I think they were not connected behind the plate). 2 sink areas, but one did not drain well. The beds were OK, the shower was OK, but the tub surround was a bit funky. 1 main seating area in middle of tub so it minimized foot/leg space as you took a shower. Toilet worked. It just felt shoddy. The breakfast was basic: powdered eggs, waffles, cereal, donuts, toast, coffee, juice, instant oatmeal. For the price we paid, albeit in Gatlinburg, I expected another level higher. We will not stay here again.

Not great, but 'OK'

Posted Nov 12, 2014
Pros: Staff
Cons: Bathroom facilities need to be updated.
Location: Tons to do. Close to the Space Needle and Ripley's. Great location.
The facilities themselves are not great. The shower head was rusted and moved around in it's base. You can just tell the place is old. The staff, however, was excellent. They were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean enough, but I did notice things like old Cheerios sitting in the heater and an unusual smell in the hallway. Overall, it is not bad for the money and the location. I, however, don't plan to stay there again. There are better options for just a little bit more.

Pros: location
Cons: They need an overflow parking area and probably replacing carpet and curtains and fixinig the water leaks just to get that old musty smell out
Location: location was very convenient within walking distance to all the downtown Gatlinburg business's
You could hear other people in their rooms, trash trucks emptying dumpsters every morning at 4:30 am. The rooms had a musty smell and the sink had a bad water leak ruining a bag of books. There wasn't enough parking.

decent enough, a bit aged but to be expected.

Posted Nov 7, 2014
Pros: Clean, good location and parking facilities. Dining area much too small-had to eat standing up!
Cons: As above
Location: Just a block off the parkway with every thing accessible.
Booking agent "TRIVALGO' did not notify us there was an up charge for our 3rd. night. Not appreciated. Could change our booking agent and motel pick in the future.

One word, NASTY!!!

Posted Oct 24, 2014
Cons: Just clean it up.
Location: It was located close to downtown.
Hair in the bathtub. I bought cleanser so we could shower. Carpet worn out and dirty. The elevator was so nasty that we walked up the stairs to our room. Towels were dingy and the room smelled like they had used so much freshener that it made it stink. I read the reviews and should have taken the advice from the one that felt the same as I do.
