Disliked: Staff & service
The room was nice, good amenities, and fairly close to Parkway. The only issue we had was one night we came back to our room in our vehicle and there was not one parking spot available. I notified the night worker who told me to go around on another side of the building that there would be a spot there. I drove over there and there were no spots. I again notified the worker and he told me I could park across the street along a fence, he stated “that’s a great spot”, my response was “but our room is in the back of this building” he then got an attitude and and was very rude and said “well that’s all there is, it’s first come first serve you’ll have to deal with it”.

The hotel was great! The only thing I would look into changing is providing a tv channel guide in the rooms so people know what channel to look for when they are watching tv. Also it would be nice to offer some sort of free breakfast for the price of the stay.

It was conveniently located to downtown Gatlinburg and very quiet. The pool and hot tub were very nice. However, the rooms smelled musty and the bathroom was moldy. It is an older hotel.
