Really neat 1/2 of a private cabin in the woods. Easy no hassle check in! Excellent location, clean room, and friendly staff. Light breakfast of fruit, granola, yogurt, coffee or juice is included! Good value - would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Great cabin and very affordable! We had a hot tib and fire place all to our selves, everything was very clean and well prepared for our arrival, and the staff that set me up over the phone were very helpful and polite Make sure you bring anything you are going to need after about 10pm because the nearest place to get anything that is open late is about 35-40 minutes away About a 1.5hour round trip
Great location, few restraunt near, rocking chair by every room made it perfect to watch the sun set over the mountains. The end of a perfect day in the Smokey Mountain. We will stay here every visit.
Good location, clean, felt very safe, met nice people. Liked the coffee/hot water maker. Bed ok. Nice place for the money. I'd stay there again (if I got a room with a sofa). We stayed in a King room, it had a table with 2 chairs but no other furniture. No sofa, etc. The lighting was dim. There was no exhaust fan in the bathroom.
Beautiful rooms. Great pool and atmosphere. Tons to do and see within a short drive. Could offer breakfast for the price. I would love to see the pool balcony open to adults only after the pool closes. Entire island shuts down at 11.
Pool is on the 2nd floor roof top. It overlooks the light show in the pond at The Island. Bed was not comfortable and it's very pricey to be a hotel.
Everyone was extremely friendly. Good southern hospitality. Queen bed was a little small for two adults.
All rooms are on second floor. Our room/balcony overlooked village below. Rooms were spacious and beds are very comfortable. Nicely decorated. Nice private pool/bar area for guests on second floor. Great views. So many things to do/places to eat within short walking distance.
I enjoyed the fact that the rooms have a very modern feel. The shower in itself was wonderful! The added bonuses of the fireplace and balcony was great. Would love to spend a romantic weekend getaway here in the near future. With all the nights we spent eating out, a free breakfast buffet would've made a big difference. We had to travel a ways off the property to eat breakfast.
We loved being able to walk out the hotel door and have live entertainment and fun things for kids. Being able to shop onsite and have great food without driving anywhere is amazing. We could enjoy a drink at hotel bar and then go to watch the dancing water show in rocking chairs provided. We also went to Dollywood and it was great too. Also the staff was very helpful and rooms are amazing. Will definitely come back again. Fun place for all ages!! The only negative thing would be parking away from hotel. We didn't mind the walk and they have valet parking if needed.
Location is perfect for strolling the parkway, dining, shopping, relaxing, and having an awesome time with your friends. The rooms are very comfortable and excellent house keeping. The hotel needs more room for checking in or needs to stagger check in times. We had to wait in our car in line for about 30 minutes to unpack, get valet service and check in. Also, disappointed that the gas to the fireplace was cut off on 4/1. The weather was unusually cold and it would have been very nice to be able to use the fireplace. We normally come in September when its 90 degrees and the fireplace is on but we have never been able to use it. Need to gauge it by the weather and not by a date on the calendar.
Property is worn out and looks decades old in style. Just a very outdated atmosphere. Room did not get cleaned one day. Maid went in took his/her tip, barely took the trash out, and left everything as she/he found it.
The outdoor area around the hotel and the pool. Of course the cookies were fantastic!
I loved how safe and welcoming The Park Vista is. The family pool area was outstanding! Enjoyed! Ate dinner downstairs at the onsite dining area. Didn't care for the Greek Chicken w/Couscous. Very dry
We were told we would have two queen sized beds and received two full size beds. For paying as much as we did, not a very nice room at all.
Everything we expected and then some. Staff was courteous, and rooms were quiet. Can't wait to come back again.
When most lower rated hotels would offer a free breakfast we found few amenities. Very disappointed that even the popcorn was overpriced at $3 a bag -should have been free. Other than that the view was beautiful and a nice pool.
The overall stay was great The staff could be better
Everything was wonderful and the price was also great
It was very clean and staff was very helpful and nice The pool had way too much chlorine all the kids were coughing and their eyes were burning but the area was very clean.
Great view of Mount Le Conte. Above, and away from all the activity in Gatlinburg. Very friendly, and helpful staff. Clean, comfortable rooms.The restaurant was very nice; good service, good food. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. And the cookies at the front desk! We stayed for a week, most people/families don't, which means that there are a lot of rooms to turn over every day. House keeping has more than they can handle, and on two occasions our room was not cleaned until 5:00 P.M. Check in appears to take a while (that wasn't the case for us), not sure why.
Pool and lounge facilities were top notch. Beautiful building. Amazing view. Because of the view though, you end up quite a ways outside of Gatlinburg proper. Also the bed was akin to a hammock, which my back objected to
The balcony Everything was totally outdated,19 years ago I bought the same TV that was in my room.Bath was so stained we didn't even shower in it.Carpet was outdated ,torn and had paint stains on it.The Vertical blind didn't work properly,had to close some of the vanes by hand.Furnuture was From the 80's and worn. Weekend rate paid $$$ and was horrible dissapointment
Convenience to downtown attractions Great Views Price too high for a hotel with only 1 functional pool, old dirty rooms, no breakfast options.
We needed extra linen for my mother-in-law. She caked to the front desk for some and am employee arrived with some within 5 minutes of her hanging up. Check-in isn't until 4 and check out is at 10. I have checked into a lot of hotels before and they've been busy at times, but the wait to check in here was unbelievable. I think it took about 15-20 minutes to finally get to the desk and walk out with keys. We had the pleasure of leaving just before 10 and noticed the housekeeping didn't have any new linen on their carts. Maybe there is a separate one that comes through but we were under the assumption that the sheets aren't changed after each stay.
Location was good ,priced ok, Breakfast plain oatmeal ,zero fruit, worst I have seen ,usually have eggs and more choices
Staff was friendly and fantastic. I liked the location. Carpets need replaced and the room was a little dated but over all a very good experience
We liked that it was so close to everything because we liked to walk. we really loved the ducks but couldn't figure out what happened to the baby ducks disappearing everyday The parking garage was way to tight. We could barely squeeze in there. then on the outside parking we found a spot but someone decided to take over both spots
Good location, nice views Rooms looking run-down, bathtub has been painted. $170 non-refundable pet charge is ridiculous for a 2 night stay.
Nice Location Quiet Pretty view Value for the money A little dated Pillows were flat
Great place to stay for biz, fam, quiet get away or even younger groups for folks. Several buildings on property and they grouped everyone well. Kayak by far had the best rate! I usually use Booking but they weren't the lowest this time. The others didn't even have availability listed. The pool was shut down due to repairs, but it just looked temporary. Also, the Drafts sports bar on the property had weird hours and just kinda strange folks working there.
This place is right next to the aquarium and right in town in Gatlinburg so it's an easy walk to everything. You do get a fairly good view either of the water or an overview of the city. The rooms are a bit outdated. My coffee wasn't replenished everyday
Location is great, just a block away from the strip. Walking distance to everything. Sheets and towels were clean. Extremely outdated. I'm sure this hotel was very nice in 1980 but not much has changed since then. TV is the only update. Place looks dirty just from years and years of use. The room smelled like a dead animal. Smell was coming from the refrigerator. We only stayed two nights so we just toughed it out. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.
We liked the location. It was within walking distance to almost everything. Loved to restaurant and the outdoor eating by the river. Service was poor but the atmosphere was worth it. Room was clean and spacious. Great view of the mountains. I would return again even though the pool was a disappointment. The pool was so dirty that we couldn't even swim in it. My granddaughter threw a swim stick in and we couldn't even find it. At night when the pool lights were shining, you could see bits of white floating all over.
I didnt pay what the rooms actully go for thank goodness. We read on line it had breakfast, it doesnt and when asked the staff were rude. They advertise 2 pools, there is only one and it is small.
The food choices were excellent. Th shows were funny and entertaining. Some very good talent. The hotel was clean and very comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. Our room was clean. The staff was nice and very helpful. Traffic was very heavy. There are alternative routes.
They waited for us to check in before they closed the front desk. Low to no staff, dirty overall, very outdated, the pool was closed due to costruction, the whole facility was under construction. My wife and I pulled up and jusy said " oh no" it was midnight we were tired and we were going to have to go in.
Room was clean and very spacious. In-room whirlpool tub was relaxing. Staff was very pleasant to deal with. Balcony was covered with spider webs. Fireplace in the room didn't work. There was an issue with the elevator as we left out so we resorted to walking down then climbing 5 flights of stairs.
Loved the hot tub. Room was bright and for the most part clean. Room was evidently cleaned very fast. Beds were sloppy. found a childs sock under the front of the bed skirt. But everything else was ok.
The room was large with two king comfortable beds and jacuzzi in room. I loved the bacony to watch the tubers and the geese in the river. Great location too and very quiet. My pet dog loved it too. The windows were large to view outside activity. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Enjoyed our stay plan on returning here one day. The only thing i didn't like was the elevator smelled of urine r cholrine couldn't decide. Carpets need to go just plain floor would work.
The rooms was great i took my fińace and my brotherand his girlfriend down for the weekend had no problenms The indoor pool is to small and the outside pool wasn't open small trade though for good rooms
The outdoor pool is shut down and green . Looks like a frog pond!!! The hotel is pet friendly and we had a dog turd on our balcony upon check in and one in the carpet right by the dining table!
The river view , jacuzzi tub, and fireplace The bottom outside of the toilet wasn't clean and the balcony outside was full of spiders at night. Other than that it was very peaceful
My family didn't like anything about this hotel The hotel was NASTY we walked into the office and there was roaches all over the floor. We thought we would give them a chance and went to the rooms. The beds had blood in the creases of the bed along with bugs. We immediately went to the lady in the office and she called us a liar so we asked for our money back (we booked three rooms for five days) she refused to give us our full refund and charged us for one night per room and was really rude about it. I will never ever recommend this place to anyone.
We were really excited to be traveling for the weekend just to get away. The pictures online make the motel look very nice. Once we arrived, we noticed that there was only ONE pool open, although online it seems there are TWO functioning pools. Of course the one that was open was absolutely packed! When we finally made our way to our room, it wasnt too bad; I have stayed in worse, but you could tell it had hardly been actually cleaned in some time now. As far as the price though, guess we just got what we paid for. I personally will probably spend a little bit more money and stay somewhere else next visit!
The Jacuzzi tub Everything was poorly maintained. The door to outside patio didn't latch.
Very nice staff, brand new, lovely setting, family friendly, off the main drag so it is not noisy, plenty of activities Room wasn't ready @4:00 pm...but by 6:00pm after speaking to Curtis...MOD...he took great care of us...shout out to him!
fireworks and smokes every night, pool, shuttles to Dollywood, felt like I was on a cruise, my 8 yr old son loved his bunk beds!
I liked the location and the pool The staff was extremely rude and the rooms don't get cleaned after each person.
I have stayed in a lot of hotels and am fairly picky. I read the reviews and look at the pictures online. Econolodge exceeded my expectations in every way. Better than some Clarions I have stayed in, for half the price. Beautiful facility, very well maintained. Pretty lobby, excellent breakfast area and I loved the food. Small room but very comfortable, nice decor and everything very clean. A fridge and microwave and coffee maker. Nice flat screen TV and many channels. Pleasant courtyard outside our room. A pretty river next to the rear parking lot. Very friendly staff. Location is right in the middle of Pigeon Forge strip, next door to Christmas Place. Can't recommend this hotel highly enough!
Great place to stay. We will definitely be back!
Closeness to everything, being right next to Christmas all year round, clean, easy to get to, easy left turn due to traffic light placement, on the water, storage in room/size of room, being able to change shower from rain to massage/multiple setting shower head, hot shower, good breakfast No ventilation in bathroom, no variety in breakfast (same stuff served every day)
The kids running up and down the halls late at night. Yelling and very noisy. Parents should exercise more control.
Nice staff Rooms were old. Semi dirty. Only had one towel. For under 100 a night not bad.
The room was very clean and alots of room. The breakfast was good. We ate there every morning. When we where in our room you could here alots of noise from the hallway. The bed was too hard !
Very good breakfast, location and service.
Comfortable, clean and at a convenient location. Free wifi. Friendly staff! Breakfast was ok. But, for the price we didnt mind eating out.
The stay was good - it was nothing exceptional, but the rooms were clean and staff was friendly. no issues
Lee had a very nice stay. Friendly staff. Clean comfortable room. Great value for money. Only issue was the noise. Walls are,thin, so we could hear a lot of noise from next room and from,hall
The continental breakfast was very good with a wide selection of eggs, toast, make your own waffles, hot & cold cereal, muffins, 3 types of juices, fruit, and more. The hotel was conveniently located to many attractions and restaurants. We had trouble finding three working outlets to plug our phones and fit bits. The hotel had a small indoor pool but did not advertise it that way.
Friendly staff, quick check in and check out, room was clean and comfortable, pool was great and clean, and the hotel is right in the middle of all the attractions. Overall very happy with our stay. Nothing negative to report.
Rooms were clean and I had no issues. Exercise room was terrible. Had cheap and broken equipment.
Had a noise from outside room that we were told was a maintenance something for the pool. Went on for an hour and we told the front desk about it. A maintenance person came up to see about it but said he could do nothing about it. It did stop but started again later but did not go on very long.
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in the king suite with the whirlpool. It was a great value for the price and a great location (right in the middle of many Pigeon Forge attractions). There was plenty of parking and the front lobby receptionist was helpful and polite. The walls did seem to be thin as you could always hear anytime people were talking in the hallway. Still would stay again though!
Good location Very disorganized front desk. Reserved rooms were not available and the hotel was sold out for the weekend. All that was available were older rooms. The front desk person wanted to be sure we knew they were cheaper so we would get a better deal. Rooms were old and stuffy, coffee maker not working, no hair dryer, no decent door lock. Rooms still needed to be renovated. It was so bad the front desk person came running with air freshers for each of the two rooms we had. At check out the bill was higher than agreed upon at checking but check out person was different and couldn't do anything about it. Ended up paying over $100 a night for a bad room. Have had better rooms for 59.99 at a Red Roof in!
The indoor hot tub was great, indoor pool was okay. The breakfast was okay.The location was convenient. The pillows were poor quality, the towels were rough and scratchy, bed was too firm. The blankets on the beds had stains, holes and burns on them. The check in staff were rude. Did not expect linens to be changed daily but one day the garbage was not picked up and the beds just had the covers thrown back up not straightened and made neat.
Awesome location right in the center of pigeon forge!
The staff was very pleasant, knowledgeable and courteous. Check in was quick and hassle free. The room was clean, with plenty of room and it smelled great when you first walked in.
The room was very nice and clean. The beds were comfortable and the linens were in like new condition. Breakfast had plenty of selection and room to eat it there instead of taking it back to the room. The check in was quick and hassle free as well as check out. The charge was accurate and we felt like it was a good deal. The location was really good since we were right in the middle of Pigeon Forge. We got back late enough that we didn't try the outdoor pool, closes at 10 pm, it looked clean and the area was really nice. We went to the indoor pool, open 24 hrs, this pool was clean and was open all the way up to ceiling at the top of the building. There wasn't any issues with our stay or room that would be considered a problem. Didn't care much for the shampoo but that is really a dig for a whine about our stay. There are two buildings so you are separated by the road in between. This again isn't an issue so much as knowing that it is there. The indoor pool is in the front building and the outdoor one is next to the back building. We at breakfast in the back building downstairs but I don't know if there is a breakfast location in the front building, I would say not. Again we didn't have any problems with out stay.
Very clean, plenty of parking and rooms were up to date, breakfast is good. People were a bit noisy going back to their rooms after 11pm. That or the window and door were super thin.
Clean and convenient to everything. Was a great hotel for a great price! The staff was friendly and efficient. We will stay again for sure!
Great clean rooms quiet nice furnishings. Breakfast was over at 9;30 missed it.
Comfortable bed. 5yr old loved the indoor pool. Good value More options for breakfast, perhaps more fruit
Rooms were nice, liked the layout. Grounds were nice, didn't use the outside pool area because of the weather but loved how it looked. The indoor pool was great however being a little too warm. Very convenient to everything. Staff was friendly upon check in but after that was not as accommodating; we asked for towels for the pool (there was none in the "towel rack") never did bring any, we spilled some soda on the carpet and used a towel to get it up and was horrified at the black "stuff" that came up on the towel. Even after this, the good out wayed the bad and we will definitely stay here again.
The room was large, comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was excellent. Staff was very friendly. Walls were a bit thin, we heard the couple enjoying each other in the next room.
Clean room good breakfast pool How long we had to wait to check in 4pm
It's got a beautiful view of the water
Staff was super friendly, breakfast every morning in the lobby was more than expected, and river views from room are amazing. About two blocks from town, shops and dining. There is a trolly right outside hotel if you don't/can't walk a lot. The stream sounds were fantastic! When walking into the room for the first time it was damp. We turned the fan in the bathroom on and opened the balcony door for a bit to let it air out. It never really seemed to 'dry out' in the room. That's okay, there was so much to do in and around town, we mostly slept there. You can hear traffic from parkway in the room.
Balcony on the river, comfortable beds, indoor pool, fire pit traffic noise
Baymont Inn is a decent location just off the main drag which was nice as it was away from the majority of the noise and nightlife. The room was clean and had a fireplace and a patio. Everything in the room was spacious except for the bathroom. Breakfast was good and they kept it stocked throughout. All rooms are accessed from the outside (no internal hallways). You don't have to go into the lobby to gain access to the stairs up to the room. The pool was warm however, it was over chlorinated like most hotel pools. Bathroom was very small and I could tell the place was slowly being updated. I think that the price for this hotel was a lot more than it should have been. This hotel would fit most people's needs its not the best nor the worst.
We enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The room was great. Staff was very pleasant. We couldn't have asked for a better location. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family. N/A
Very nice place and convenient to Gatlinburg and all attractions. Free breakfast was good. Kids enjoyed the indoor pool. We will stay here again. It was a little hard at times to get in and out with all the traffic
Beds are heavenly. No bad comments
I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Its literally by the water front, the room has an incredible view of the mountains and the local hotels are neat and the town is very tourist friendly, there are local trolleys to help you get around. It's beautiful and full of cute shops, definately worth exploring.
The staff was very friendly, the rooms were great and the location was great also.
I liked that the room was ready earlier than stated. It was quiet during the night and we slept well. I was surprised that they were full to capacity most of our days but still very quiet. For the money, I will book here again. No problems at all. The only thing that we experienced was the free wi-fi was not good. We only got a signal one night. That is usually not a problem but still had some work-related business to check on during the week and could not get a connection.
Location Bugs in room, duct tape in shower, wash cloths plugging holes in ceiling tiles, staff not friendly or efficient, ice maker not working, no parking due to concert being held in parking lot.
The location is the best you can find for all the attractions! The wifi wasn't that great.
Every one at the front desk was nice and polite After reading some of the reviews thought it was going to be a bad place, ask the front desk if we could see the rooms before we checked in. They gave us the room keys and allowed us to check the rooms out, everything was in good shape.
My husband and I walked to the island and even several shopping centers. It is very centrally located to lots of fun things to do. Perfect for pushing our son in his stroller instead of taking the time to pack him up into the truck. Pool was very nice but needs more shade for little ones. Only two small umbrellas were available. The place was an older hotel but you can tell they were doing updates to it. There were several flat screen tv boxes in the dumpster that was close to our room so you could tell they were in the process of doing some updates.
Thebed was comfortable. The room was clean. I was not a fan of the breakfast. The eggs were not real eggs. Yuck! There was apparently a squirrel somewhere in the ceiling. I got quite a scare when I heard it squeaking.
Location was great have stayed here 2 other times and was great then. Checked in went to room and it hadn't even been cleaned. Then the next day they took all the towels and they never cleaned the room that day nor brought back any towels had to go and get our on towels.
I like the convenience of everything near by. I didn't like, that a i wasn't able to have internet in the room.
The fron desk staff were nice. Chemical smell was so bad that We had to change rooms. I have been sick since being in the room. Neither room was even close to clean. We went to another motel and stayed the next night. Breakfast was not good. The staff were nice and that is about all that place has going for it.
Loved the location, price, free breakfast, and the rooms. Wifi didn't work half the time. Chain broke on door.
The Christian atmosphere and friendly staff. It fun swimming with a view of the mountains!!! The beautiful birds in the lobby were amazing. Plan to go back!!!
It was neat that they actually use real keys for the rooms. King beds are definitely a king, we skept 2 adults and two kids in one bed. The even have cable, vey nice and family friendly!
Location; comfortable bed; amenities (microwave, frig); nice carpet; friendly staff; good shower and water pressure; room layout Balcony chairs were uncomfortable!
Nothing to point out
The air and pool are very good. Nothing.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.

nice outside balcony no cofee pot otherwise no complants
Very clean, reasonably priced and excellent location. Nothing
The privacy and the location it was perfect. Just need updated TV's
Great location, friendly staff
Everyone was nice rooms were amazing. Pool was nice n clean.
pool staff location awesome wifi slow
Location was good and close to attractions. Very clean. Had a problem with the hair dryer and they fixed immediately Not very quiet, could hear everyone talking loudly as they passed by our room. Curtains didn't close all the way. Pillows were not comfortable
having two queen beds that were very comfortable the air conditioner put out a bad smell
Comfortable beds and friendly staff. Within close walking distance to restaurants and The Island.
Location Breakfast was great, but had to cross 4 lane highway to get it! Had room by elevator ... noise.
Perhaps the coziest stay that I've had in the area. The staff is wonderful! Very convenient to everything. I will stay here again.
The room and view were great. Website was not clear about extra charge for pets. It states pets are welcome and there was an additional charge but no amount listed. I was expecting an extra $20 charge or so and was completely SHOCKED when at check in they told me it would be $170!!! I would not have booked the room had I known this especially since the rate for the room itself was only $109! Completely ridiculous charge.
The mountains Air conditioner broke two times spilling water on the floor, and they never brought us toilet paper after two days of calling.
Rooms were nice and clean. Main attraction at the waterpark was closed. The playground was also closed. We have two young children and we wanted to stay here because of the amenities but because they were closed we had to search out other things to do.
The scenery near the resort The rooms, the prices. For a resort, you would assume that at least WIFI was inclusive in the room charge. Nope, it was not. They also try to get you to think that you won something at checking. It was thein 4 hr "come see why it's so good to be an owner" routine. That was the only time any kind of complimentary breakfast was mentioned!
The staff and accommodations were excellent. I think for the cost to stay there, the water park and other amenities should be included.
Staff was courteous and friendly, the room had every thing you could possibly need I couldn't believe it was a studio room. That I couldn't stay longer.
Not much No TV ...had to wait 20 mins for shuttle to come when they had 50 golf carts with 6 seats in them pass you by no parking there should be at least 1 parking space per room or villa for 500 for 2 nights water park should be included not an extra 82 dollars next time we will stay at Wilderness of the Smokies
Property is well maintained and the staff are very courteous. Plenty of onsite activities every day to keep you busy. Minutes away from Gaylinburg and Pidgeon Forge
the staff was very responsive and went out of their way to help
Service and beauty of resort and water park. great staff from check in to bellboy all the way to room. Nothing..
Parking sucked. They will try to have you tour for discounted attractions-- seemed like a good idea but there 90 minute tour with a free breakfast turned out to be over 5 hours of salesmen in your face trying to sell you a timeshare. They waisted one whole day for our weekend vacation. I would much rather pay for the attraction then lose time with them trying to sell me a timeshare for that amount of time. Not upfront or honest. And the great breakfast you get for touring was terrible.
Parking garage and elevator were very convenient. Hard to find luggage carts. Shower didn't work right.
i have no idea. i have no idea how kayak got involved but the confirmation came through as hotel.com for 454.00. this booking was for my daughter and her husband for their anniversary. luckily i called the resort the next day to make sure they would be able to check in since it was under my name and not theirs. well they had nothing in reserved! no rooms available. sooo.. i called hotels.com and they were great in correcting the problem and helped me get an even nicer resort and paid the difference. i will never use kayak again. i will directly call book straight thru to hotel.com next time so this never happens again. so glad i called ahead. dont know...didn't get to go!!!
The staff was friendly All rooms are pet friendly..... when you walk in the room smell of dogs knock you down, dog hairs found in the rooms..... We checked out and didn't stay
Staff were extremely nice and helpful - clean and updated facility - very comfortable stay. Some reviews complained about the canine guests, but my family didn't hear any barking at night. We actually enjoyed petting the dogs with the owners permission of course. The breakfast area is a little cramped.
