A little dated, but nice place to stay. Everyone was very kind. The rooms were very clean. We plan to stay there again for the Vacation Races Smokey Mountain Half Marathon next year. There is a restaurant next to the hotel, walking distance, which made it convenient to get a bite to eat.

Out of the 1940's! Clean but old smell. Metal frame bed, pull down shades, phone booth shower, overstuffed chair, no light to read & tube type TV. For $96, go down the road to a nice modern motel unless you just want to reminisce the past.

We had no reservations. Room was very small, quaint . Comfortable, no amenities. Bathroom was extremely small, needed new fixtures. Shower only. We have stayed there on previous trips and rooms were adequate.

This is an older hotel but very well maintained and clean. We have stayed several times and are booked for two more visits this year. The pool is nice, the views are great and the price is very reasonable. They accept AAA and other discounts.

This is an older, family run business, closest to park entrance can't beat the location for convenience and avoiding the commercialism of Gatlinburg. Most rooms have a lively read view of the hills towards the Smokies, some with patios or balconies. Note that there are many variations in the rooms so ask for what you want. Ours was in the...

We managed to find... More

I stayed her last year and had a much better experience. The accommodations were adequate but not outstanding. Overall the room was clean, the only drawback, the shower curtain had a sour smell. One positive note, the parking area is right at your door. So, carrying items from your vehicle to your room is convenient. Other items that draw from... More
