We checked into the room here due to being evacuated because of the wildfires in Smoky Mountains for the simple fact they were one of the few that accepted pets. It is the nastiest place I have ever been in!! The only reason we did stay was because this was given as a gift because of the evacuation and we... More

We had to pay for two nights and when we seen how dirty it was, we tried to get our money back for the second night so... More

The hotel was way over priced for the quality of the room. It was like going back to 1980. The sheets on the bed had to be the original from the grand opening 40 years ago. The TV in the room was a 32" old big box style with bad picture and hardly any sound. The AC/Heat unit was old... More

We got completely mislead about this hotel. We where told that is was comparable to the Hampton Inn. No where near. It was 118$ and was a 40$ hotel. It was ok. The staff member at the desk said "you don't have enough sense to understand policy". We had to keep the room and pay the price for using a... More

It has to be the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The first thing was the door wouldn't lock. The bathroom was pretty nasty. We skipped our showers in the morning. The bed was way too soft. I don't think I slept at all. The room was definitely way too expensive for what you get. The TV was old time.... More

We went to the Smoky Mountains at last minute. Mistake on a weekend.
