We enjoyed our stay here. Room was spacious enough for our family and very clean. It was also centrally located to everything in Gatlinburg that we wanted to visit. We could walk to a lot of restaurants and other activities. Rooms were also very affordable for someone on a budget. I highly recommend.

Breakfast is non-existent and for the price of the rooms the could offer much better! Parking is a pain as well and you are only allowed one spot which doesn’t work if you’ve driven two cars to get your family there.

"Friendly, clean and comfortable."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 05, 2018 NEW
The motel is clean and comfortable with a nice outdoor swimming pool and a light continental breakfast. However it's best asset is its great staff. I would have given 5 stars if they had a laundromat rather important for a backpacker coming in off the trail. The nearest facility is 5 miles away and tram service in Gatlinburg was unreliable.
