    Pretty and comfy but definitely unclean..
    Overall, it was a nice stay. The room had been nicely renovated and they were working on more across the street. Updates are modern and pretty. I wouldn’t be opposed to staying again for the price; HOWEVER, I would take my own cleaning supplies to swifter the floor and clean the bathroom for our own sake. Nothing looked unclean to the naked eye, but my toddler’s socks told the story.. Within minutes, they were black from running around on the NASTY linoleum floor. YUCK. So of course, I questioned the rest of the cleanliness.

    Good 6.0
    Our overall stay was ok could have been better. The rooms were ok, could have been better with the understanding due to the renovations. I understand everything won't be perfect however, but covering updated things to over look the bad is not cool. Nice updated bathroom, with a old beat up bathroom door. I had to place a towel under the front door so that nothing would crawl in or no one could look under the door. The beds were comfortable, nice size TV, need more pillows for the bed, and more decor for the room. Front desk service was friendly and pleasant! Easily convenient to downtown Gatlinburg, you can walk from the hotel to all the shops. This was a one night trip, paid too much for this room after seeing how the property really look. I paid the price for the convenience of being downtown, but I wanted to give this hotel a chance even after reading the reviews. The construction site doesn't help much, actually it makes it worse.

    Nice hotel, disappointing town
    Good place to stay. Didn’t realize Gatlinburg was such a zoo though. Hotel was fine just not a fan of the town. We were there primaryto visit the smokies.

    Fair 4.0
    First room we had the ac wasnt working properly and it would shut off making it hot in the room so they moved us to another room. So we got up and left for the day to venture out and then i get a phone call stating we needed to move our things back to the old room because the ac was never broke and they moved us into a booked room so here we are out in gatlinburg enjoying the day and then had to stop to pack our belongings up yet again. When we got there, turns out they booked our old room and we got a 3rd and final room on the opposite side of the hotel. They could only offer us 10% off the first night stay since our ac was apparently working and offered 15% off our next stay as we if we wanted to stay with them again. Customer service at the desk had an attitude with us because we were aggravated and tired of packing and moving rooms. I mean who would complain at 2 a.m that the ac isnt working properly and who would want to pack their belongings up and move at a time like that.All we wanted to do was sleep comfortable and that was too much. Location though was on point.

    Great place to stay, however watch out for a bear that hangs around every night. It actually goes up on the second level.
