There were roaches in room. Staff was nice but we won't stay there again.
Ask for the creek side rooms with balconys! Hearing the creek from your room was great. Their indoor pool is what sells this place for me and my family. It's a fun pool, with waterfall and hot tub. You can't beat the value for the location and amenities. It's not very fancy or new, but if you're not a fancy person then you'll love it.
The pools Parking needs some work
The cleaning staff was very nice and the riverfront was a plus. There were ants in our room. The minifridge became unplugged sometime when we were asleep the first night and ruined our food in the fridge. When you entered the room the smell was unpleasant and somewhat over powering, took a while to adjust to it.
Our stay was great. We would definitely stay again. Rooms were very nice and clean. Staff was friendly. Pool area was great as well. Best thing was it's location to downtown we were able to walk every where just about. Only complaint would be that their towels were to small.
it reminded me of Gatlinburg when I was growing up. Simple, clean motel. Off the parkway so it was nice and quiet, but still just a short walk to the main drag. AMAZING pool!!! Unbeatable price, and super friendly staff. We will be back!
After reading some reviews after booking our stay I was worried... we arrived & the staff was very friendly, rooms were clean, a/c worked great, ice machines worked. I found no merit to some concerns addressed in others reviews. Yes this is a older motel but not rundown & I would stay again. We were courtside (across the street) & it was very peaceful. Nothing
We enjoyed the following... Big, warm indoor pool Creek directly under room balcony Comfortable beds Friendly staff Location On-site breakfast Quiet rooms Bathrooms could use a few updates. It was also a cold walk outside from the indoor pool to our room but that's just part of being an older/motel-style establishment.
Rate and location N/A
The location and the indoor pool were great. Our room was very small and smelled like mildew/mold. The hotel is very outdated and not very clean. The Wifi did not work most of the time and the shower water kept going from scalding hot to cold without touching anything. We also were put in a "pet friendly" room, which I would NEVER stay in again. If I had known that part of the hotel was "pet friendly" I would have never booked there. We will never stay at this hotel again.
Great staff, very friendly. The staff were the highlight of this experience. The rooms were average with the standard motel options. Location was close enough that you could walk to the main attractions. For the price it was worth it. The Wi-Fi only worked at the main building and a bit beyond. Did not see any breakfast options available but a fantastic pancake house was nearby. Bathrooms needed updated.
Very affordable, close to the shopping strip & attractions but a little more of a walk than I expected especially with small kids! I think our kids liked the pool more than they liked the actual vacation itself! I was happy to stay there though! The pool wasn't very easy to access at all, our room we were given at check in had not been cleaned up from a prior maintenance job but the front desk took care of us right away and put us in another room. We ended up being by the creek which was really nice.
Friendly staff. Good location. Room was not completely clean prior to checkin. The manager had to come and clean up after the maids.
It was great. We came in from driving all night from Louisiana, and they let us check in early, once the rooms were clean. We were able to check in about two hours early, possibly even earlier, like I said, we were tired! :) Staff was friendly, housekeeping was great! Very close to all the attractions, and good views. We will definitely stay again our next time to Gatlinburg. The pool area could have been cleaner. We did not swim, but would have if we were staying longer. I am not sure if it was in construction being this time of the year, but the fountain (??) area was not working and just looked sort of drab.
Location and breakfast and room size Not enough parking on site when full.
Everything was great. Had an awesome breakfast. Beds and pillows were super comfortable. Short was from main strip in Gatlinburg.
While this is an older hotel it was perfect for a nights stay. We were stopping in Gatlinburg for a night and we just wanted a room close to the main street. The hotel was about a block from the restaurants and shops. It was clean and had a refrigerator and microwave which was all we really needed. The bed was ok and it was quiet. Would've preferred a room with a king bed but that wasn't available. Which isn't the fault of the hotel. Parking was easy. The only thing I would say could've been a problem is that the room we were in was in a separate building from the main desk so it wasn't convenient to go to the front desk if we needed anything. Check in was fast and the gentleman working as very nice.
The hotel was ok. It was located in a perfect spot. It was close to the park and right by the Main Street through Gatlinburg. The room was comfortable and clean. We had a balcony which was nice but the view was of a parking lot. This is a good hotel if you don't plan to vacation at the hotel. We used it to sleep and spent the days at the park so it was perfect for us. Free breakfast was a plus but you got to get there early being that the dinning area is so small. I will stay here again. The room and hotel were very basic and small. dinning area is very small so getting to the breakfast area early is a must. Hotel is a bit dated also. Nothing major is wrong with any of this and I would stay here again.
I was very happy with the room I rented at the Econo Lodge Inn. The room was clean and very nice. I had no problems with anything in the room.
Decent options for breakfast. Friendly front desk. Location allows you to walk down the main strip.
The location was great Our balcony did not face the river at all, it faced construction that kept us up all night. The shower curtain had mold on it and there was hair from previous guests still in the bath tub. There was a dried up paper towel stuck to our ceiling and in the peep hole on the door. The locks on the doors did not feel safe. The beds were so uncomfortable that our backs still hurt from sleeping on them. The breakfast in the morning did not make it with the stay at all. It seemed like a chore to walk from our room to the road every time we left the hotel. We only paid $36 a night to stay there, but I would never ever ever pay that much to stay there again!
It was in Gatlinburg. It wasn't the building on the picture, the whole floor we were on was damp and reeked of mold and mildew and the beds were the worst I have ever slept on! I am still coughing and clearing my throat 1 day later! AVOID AT ALL COST!
staff very nice, professional, helpful, n friendly. good housekeepers. nice continental breakfast. hotel is clean. nice mattresses and pillows. have been here before and will definitely come again. the carpet had been recently cleaned in our room, must have used too much water, there was a very very musty almost moldy smell in the room. the fire alarm went off, we all evacuated, no fire dept showed up, no staff showed up, we just went back in when the alarm went off.
cleanliness, price, distance from the strip nothing
I like the closeness to downtown Gatlinburg and the beds were very comfortable and great rate Needs bigger TV different bed spreads and a little face-lift.
convenient to shops, the place was two blocks away (behind subway lite 6). a clean place not up scale by any means. would stay there again. met my request of not being on main road. security lights were off going to room one nite. could use another towel rack in bathroom. would like a computer in lobby for guest to use, and a iron /iron board in room would be nice.
The website says the hotel is 2 blocks from the strip but that is still .4 miles. It's a lot further than the website made it seem. We received an earlier morning wake up call both days that we DID NOT request. But the worst was the water temperature in the shower. It would get scalding hot with no notice. I let management know when we checked out but he didn't seem very concerned. Wouldn't stay there again.
No coffee in lobby
Pool was very nice Beds are very uncomfortable. Our room balcony was in the pool area and it was at least a 100°+ when you walked up to go to our room. I just believe you should know that. And the pictures looked a whole lot nicer to me.
Location was good, just a short walk down the road and you were in downtown Gatlinburg and close to any activity you wanted to do. Staff was nice. Hotel is a little dated but overall is a nice place to stay. Pool area and hallways were hot.
Great location to downtown Gatlinburg, the staff were friendly and helpful It is no fault to the people that work there, but the building itself is in need of some TLC. You can tell that is what they are working on, but I couldn't help but notice
The rooms were sizeable, the water was hot, the location is great whether you're checking out Gatlinburg's tourist district or catching the trolley to Dollywood. Although we didn't go for a swim, the indoor pool looks amazing and I'm sure it's fun regardless of the season. I did note plenty of young families enjoying it while we were there and the air doesn't overwhelm with chlorine. We arrived late at night, after 2am, and there was no one at the check in counter, only a sign saying "be back soon". After sitting in the lobby for more than half an hour whole the security guard stated at me and at his phone, a desk clerk finally arrived to check us in. Parking was limited, but they were accommodating by basically not enforcing any parking rules as long as we were not blocking someone in. They put us in a handicap room, which wasn't a problem in itself, but the bathroom door slides open and shut for ease of access and unfortunately it wasn't well oiled so we weren't able to ever fully open or close the door. I did report the problem, but don't know if it was ever fixed as we were only there 2 nights.
The location was the center of downtown Gatlinburg. Would have been a great proximity if we had stayed. The second you walk in the room, we opted for the poolside option as we were planning to spend time in the pool with our two small children, all you could smell was chlorine, not to mention the room was about 87 degrees when we first walked in. While looking around our room, we found lots of great treasures, old Broken Oreos in the carpet (carpet looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in about a month) , the bathroom was disgusting you had to hover above the toilet, the shower curtain had something streaked down it, looked like makeup maybe?? Who knows. There was brown matter streaked on the wall I could take a guess on what it was. It looked like feces. The tv kept cutting in and out with sound and picture so that was a no go when my 3 year old asked to watch cartoons before bed. We decided to check out the beds to see what they were like since the rest of the room was absolutely disgusting. On one of the blankets there was red lipstick. And on the sheets there were big black hair. In more spot than one. So I'm guessing the sheets hadn't even been changed? Needless to say we grabbed our bags and our two small children and got the heck out of there, we didn't even stay the night. Then the whole trip was spent attempting to get our refund back as we ended up having to spend money on a different hotel for our trip. And then they tried to tell us that we had to pay for the first night even though we didn't stay. We will not be back. Waste of money and time out of our trip.
Upgraded room for no extra charge and the suite was quiet, comfortable and clean Pool area needs upgrade and was glad to see its in the plans for the coming year There were no towel racks in the bathroom and the water never got hot.
The room was comfortable and felt roomy, the location was close to the strip and a lot of parking. There were a few things broken in the room, the walls are thin, and the pool shouldn't close so early or should have an adults only time. The children spoil the trips
Excellent location, very clean, staff was very nice, breakfast was delicious. For the price it is the best place we have ever stayed at in Gatlinburg. We Highly recommend.
We love the Gatlinburg Inn. This was our second visit and we loved it so much the first time that it was our selection for our servings trip to Gatlinburg. Out also was where we just got engaged! There is a fireplace out front with some rocking chairs for socializing. There is a pool for the summer. There are a few rooms/seating areas for your family to hang out and done have fireplaces. The charm of this place really wins out. Finally, it is in the absolute heart of downtown Gatlinburg, so the convenience cannot be beat!
The location was the only good thing. It's right at the entrance of the park. We arrived and the staff was not very friendly. They were arguing with each other because they double booked a room. Our room smelled of mildew. There were stains on everything. Two of the lights did not work in the room. The floor was sticky. The AC did not work. The sound on the tv did not work, I had to rewire it and reprogram it. I would not recommend this room to anyone. It was very outdated and I wouldn't stay there again if it were free. Very disappointed and upset we spent so much money on a dirty uncomfortable room.
No rooms were available upon arrival, despite advanced reservations with confirmation. Front desk attendant did not care and only offered to upgrade the room for an additional fee. Do not attempt to stay here, you will not get a room for the reservation price, bait and switch.
The location The front desk agent checked my employee into a occupied room, when my employee went to the front desk to inform the agent he was told the room we reserved was not available and we would need to speak with a manager in the AM. Me employee went to the front desk the following day to get a room change to the double room I reserved and the agent said we are not changing your room and if you want to speak with a manager call the owners in India. The agent was very rude and unprofessional. would never book at this property again.
The location is perfect. It has always been out go to place to stay To begin with the room was not as clean as it typically is there. The sink was either dirty or stained and there were some toenail clippings next to the bed but we had never had a problem before and I didn't want to ruin our trip so it was overlooked. The wifi never worked in the room but that was the least of our concerns. The drawer in the dresser broke as soon as I tried to set clothes in it. The second day there a teribble smell (like a dead animal) began occurring by the first floor stairwell that was still there when we left a few days later. The air conditioning units leak water everywhere which I understand air conditioners will do but after they filled up the containers under them they were left to just go all over the floor. This includes the one on the balcony of our room. The second night we were there my husband and two year old were on the balcony and she was walking back to the room and slipped in the water from the air conditioner. We finally went to the front desk and explained what happened and they did offer to change our room but at this point it wouldn't have fixed the problem of the leaking air conditioners because they all did that and we were already completely unpacked with a two year old so packing back up and moving would have been very hectic and inconvenient. By the next day the water coming from the third floor a/c down onto our 2nd floor balcony made it impossible to walk out on without getting wet. We've always enjoyed our stays here before but this will be our last one until it gets some serious renovations.
AC didn't really work, the place was kind of a dump, the staff was disinterested at best, the continental buffet was nasty & loud as heck as they went about their business, even early in the morning. Pretty much everything about the place.
Convenient location and comfortable bed. Place lacked basic cleaning. Dust on fans, walls not wiped down, etc. They need to remodel too. Part of my bathroom mirror frame had melted, and there was stains and cigarette burns all over the sheet and comforter set. Plus, when you walk into your room, your immediately reminded of your grandmother's damp basement.
The only really great feature about our hotel as the location. The lady at the desk at time of check-in was really nice and the second the third shift guy was really nice. When we better the room it smelled of smoke and it was supposed to be a non-smoking room and then when look at the beds one had a cigarette burn in the blanket. When I went to take my morning shower I frozen my water never got hot and then I pulled a wash cloth off the rack and it had blood on it. We left our room to take children out come back beds where made bathroom had not been cleaned and no extra tools/wash clothes given. At time of check out I said something again to the day shift clerk and she stated she never spoke to me and that I spoke to the other girl and she told her and text house keeping.
This is our family's favorite place to stay in Gatlinburg because of the indoor, heated pool and the location is right on the main strip. The breakfast was a lot better last time we stayed, this time it wasn't that great, no hot food. The oatmeal was cold and dried out, the biscuits were cold and unedible.
Great location. Within walking distance to a lot of Gatlinburg attractions. Nice continental breakfast. Extremely helpful/friendly front desk staff. Bathroom was extremely dirty. Found hairs in the shower from prior guests. Walls around shower seemed to have some sort of bacteria or mold. Shower curtain had tear in it and was poorly stitched up. Door did not fully close at the top outside jam unless pushed on from the inside. Hotel sign was not lit at night and was damaged.
