I was withing walking distance of the main shopping district of downtown Gatlinburg and many restaurants. Also close to National Park for the days I wanted to drive up the mountain. Staff was very personable although they were experiencing some construction at the time. I would definitely stay here on my next trip to Gatlinburg.

We were well pleased with our choice to stay here! The room was very nice and clean. Also newly renovated! The front desk ladies were very accommodating!! We would definitely stay with them again. The only suggestion we would make would be to have a better WiFi signal in the room. It kept going off quite a bit.
