Worst stay/experience ever !
The listing said it was in Sevierville and it was actually in strawberry plains ! So they wouldn’t change the location for me or give me a refund so we went ahead and went there … it was suppose to be smoke free, well it was not ! The room stunk so bad . When the people on the other side turned there water on it sounded like they were in our shower .. then went to put something in the microwave and cockroaches came running out ! There was old food all inside it and under the microwave hadn’t been cleaned ever ! The owner told us they would switch our room but I told them no cause if one had cockroaches they all did … and she said they didn’t have roaches .. even though she was seeing them run out … the other guy there said that that wasn’t even there microwave some one must have came and stole there microwave and left that one … (as if that made them sound better) still wouldn’t give a refund cause they said we was the only one complaining so we was just being dramatic… so if you like bugs and crappy service this is the place for you ! Check there Facebook reviews it’s even worse !
