The staff was so pleasant. This motor inn is well kept, a 3 minute walk to downtown Gatlinburg, and very friendly. A great value! We will be staying here again.

"average accommodations good service"
February, 2015
It was an okay place to stay for an inexpensive getaway with my small children. No complaints and lower rating is only because the hotel is a bit dated, but for the price it is a good value!

"Awesome time"
February, 2015
I took my two sons and I to this place and it was unbelievable. We had a great time with an unbelievable view of Tennessee. It was very close to everything and the staff was very friendly. Overall I'm definitely giving this a 10!

Tip: When they say your check in time is 3 PM they mean 3 PM. Which is good because it means they take their time to get the room clean and ready for you.

We stayed here over spring break and it was a nice hotel. The location was FANTASTIC! Right downtown within walking distance of everything, as per all other reviews it was outdated; but it was clean! Friendly staff they even let us stay parked in the lot after we checked out!

Called at 1p.m. To see if room was ready for check in, was told yes. However, upon arrival the room door was left open, no shower curtain, towels, soap or other toiletries where even left in the room. The phone does not work in the room so I called from cell to the front office and was told the cleaning lady must be coming back with a clean shower curtain and other things. Waited and waited, fell asleep. Went to leave to get dinner stopped at the office where a man told me he had no idea where he could even find a shower curtain. Really? He said give him an hour to gather everything up and he’d bring it to us. 1 1/2 hours later he pounds on the door. Brings 2 plastic shower curtains with no rings to hang it and a bag of towels and other things. At that point I was just rolling my eyes. Needless to say the floor was soaked after our showers after having to hang the curtain over the rod. It was our first and last time

"Good in town place to stay"

I have stayed here several times. The best feature of this motel is it is just one block off the main street of Gatlinburg. The gentleman at the desk was nice and got me checked in. Even though it was spring break the rate was excellent. The room I stayed in was large and clean. Only problem was the doors opened to the pool area, where the pool had been severally neglicted. That's was still OK with me. When I go back to Gatlinburg, I will surely stay here again.

I think it is important to remember when looking at Trip Advisor reviews that the rating from each person is likely compared to their own expectations. I see many people saying the ratings are wrong. The ratings are absolutely right. Is this motel as nice as hotels I've given ratings of "Terrible"? No, of course not. But that is because I expect more from a Hilton than I do a privately owned motel. This was an amazing deal. We spent a week there at $50/night. It is in easy walking distance from everything downtown and has free parking if you're staying there. The room was run down, sure - but it was clean. The bathroom was definitely showing it's age - but it was clean. This is a place to sleep, shower, and sometimes relax for a short while between other vacation to do's - but obviously you wouldn't spend a day there. I do not recommend using their laundry. Drive the short distance to the town laundromat if necessary. I received the best WiFi I've ever gotten at a hotel here. Very unexpected. I was able to stream Netflix, Vudu, and even play online games via my laptop. I ran a speedtest and found it was pushing 50mbps up and 30 down with latency between 50-90ms. Now, perhaps it was my location (which is why I included the room number), but this was impressive, and it was free. We were able to plug an HDMI cable from my laptop to the flatscreen and watch movies every night and microwave popcorn. It was pretty sweet. If you expect a "Very Good" rating to mean a fancy hotel, don't stay here. But if you want a hotel that serves its purpose and saves you money, then you can make the most of a stay here.

I didn’t expect much since it was so cheap. Like other reviewers have said it’s older and needs updates. It could have been cleaned better. Worst part was my bathroom had mold. Best perk is you can walk downtown. Not sure I’d stay again.
