Took my Grandson to Dollywood and chose the Econolodge for price and reviews. We spent three nights there in a clean, comfortable room that more than met my expectations. My Grandson loved the ducks out back and the pool and hottub that were clean and well maintained. I loved our clean and comfortable room and we both enjoyed our good...

As always, this place was CLEAN! The first thing my husband and I did was walk to the river to see the ducks and WOW! The curb appeal was breath taking. Walking down the side walk you can tell the immaculate care that had been taken with the choosing of the plants beside the river and the steps leading down...

The bed was stained of at the bottom and top. I don't go to any hotel without checking mattresses before laying in it.

Great location, great shower and nice walk by the river. It was an interesting room but very tight quarters. No room for even one suitcase, because of carpet issues it took two hands to maneuver door, and AC didn't work. Couldn't sleep.
