Great place to stay and we will stay again but was not happy with the free Wi-Fi. You had to constantly login. Very aggravating especially if you’re on a business trip. Also the housekeeping never did sweep and they only did very minimal cleaning. New towels And bathroom items and made beds. That was it. But this is minor stuff compared to the rest of the stay which is great.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights near the end of June. The room was very nice and redone. There’s a vanity style sink outside of the bathroom which was nice for getting ready at. The balcony was slightly awkward because there’s a conjoining door to the next balcony that stays locked. Our tv didn’t work and neither did the fireplace (or it was just very difficult to figure out) however we didn’t notify anyone because it wasn’t a huge deal to us. I believe we were in room 303. The service was extremely friendly throughout our entire stay and the front desk lady’s were nice and gave us many recommendations on things to do when we asked. However, if they are still in the process of remodeleing, I hope the are considering redoing the elvator area and breakfast area. The breakfast area only seats maybe 3 or 4 tables and when we went down we had to squeeze around people to get food. The elevator area isn’t just to bad just dated. Overall a the room and service was excellent. The hotel itself could just use a few minor updates/repairs.

"Poor customer service"

My family decided to come to Gatlinburg since it was close to our trip to Cherokee. We spent the day and decided to stay a night. A Over Gatlinburg employee recommended this hotel so we called to see rates for Wednesday night. The employee customer service was horrible. I don’t usually right reviews for places I haven’t visited but this call left me in such desgust. Surprising being that their reviews are good. When Bonnie answered the phone she seemed like she would rather be anywhere else but answering my questions. Unprofessional to say the least. Reason I chose to stay somewhere else.

"Remodeled but still needs some repairs"

Overall, the room with 2 queen beds is very spacious, and the extra sink outside the bathroom is very convenient especially when traveling with several people. The extra chair with ottoman was a nice touch and a good place to sit when putting on shoes since the beds are rather tall. The a/c had problems with “staying” on. It would cycle a few times and then turn off. Neither the controls on the unit itself or the thermostat on the wall seemed to work?!? The front door to the hotel room looked as if something ran into it, was puttied over in an attempt to repair it, and painted only to show daylight through the cracks of the lower panel when inside! The ice machine is located on the 3rd floor—-I figured due to people that were not hotel guests helping themselves to ice when it was more convenient on the 1st floor. I’m not sure about property security, but it always seemed as if there was “activity” in the parking lot no matter the time. The office personnel are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was “grab and go”...limited space to offer anything “hot.” The hotel is approximately 1/4 mile from the main street, but an easy walk. Overall, it was comfortable and clean, but they have plans to continue remodeling and they need to make some repairs to existing rooms that have been renovated.
