I have had too stay here many nights over the summer and have loved it. The rooms are always clean and well maintained and so is the property. From the general manager to the housekeepers everyone is always pleasant, friendly and helpful. I would recommend anyone stay here.

Our room was super clean, great price and even better staff. The front desk were amazing but one house keeper was fantastic. The manager at the desk told us his name was Gavin. He’s was very nice and respectful. He’s super nice and you could tell he wanted to make sure we had everything we needed while we were there. I also found out from the manager that he was a new employee, but to my husband and I we thought he would’ve been there a lot longer because of his professionalism. Outstanding staff

Not too bad

Not a bad room but the price, clean. We were short a set of towels but no reason to complain, anything can happen. But overall it was clean, quiet, and it worked for us. It was very convenient for last minute. I’d stay again.

Great hotel, fair price

We stopped here to have dinner with a friend on our way to Gatlinburg. Room was clean, property was clean, the bed was a little hard, but someone else might like a hard bed. Perfect for a one night stay.
