    Good but needs a facelift.
    The indoor pool is awesome, and so are the employees. The rooms, however, could use a bit of an update.

    First Trip to Gatlingburg
    Front desk clerks were great. Hotel is old and in need of an upgrade to the 20th century. Very convenient to the downtown shopping and in walking distance to everything. The Cafe has that home cooking feel and taste.
