Conveniently located in Gatlinburg within walking distance of the Parkway. Our room was located on the ground floor by the pool, which was a plus. Room was clean and looked like it had been recently updated. My only complaint would be the laminate flooring. There was no rug to wipe your feet on so and dirt and stuff that made its way in ultimately ended up in the bed. It would have been helpful to have a rug or a broom. The other thing was that every time someone dropped something in the room above us, we could easily hear it because of the floor. Staff was somewhat friendly; I had to wait to be checked in because the clerk had stepped out. The spaces reserved for people checking in were occupied by hotel employees so I had to park in another spot in the parking lot. When I went to check out, again those spaces were occupied and again I had to wait for the front desk clerk who happened to be sitting in one of the vehicles parked in the Guest check in spots, which in my opinion just doesn't look good. Not sure if any breakfast options were available, there was no indication by sign or being told at check in that there was or not. Overall, we would probably stay again.
