"Great location Gatlinburg"

We were able to walk or ride the trolley everywhere we needed to go thanks to this great location. Our room had a nice balcony and huge closet. Will probably be even better when renovations are complete. I was not too fond of the elevator and not sure if they have plans for upgrading. The stairs were easy enough since only 2 levels.

This location is one of my favorites in Gatlinburg. We don’t have to drive anywhere, and it’s tucked away behind the main strip making it perfect! We always stay here in spring, so we have never used pool, but everything else is great.
