I have stayed at this hotel too many times to count but I have had enough from the rude staff. Not one person ever thanked me or really spoke to me at all. They are doing updates to the hotel that helps but I will not stay where my money is not appreciated. I will be looking elsewhere. Do not...

After securing our reservation on the hotel website weeks before our visit, the owner called me three hours into our drive there. He told me he was cancelling our room for that night because he had a group of people who booked through Expedia and it was a "better business deal". He told me I should understand why this is...

I have stayed at this hotel for the last few years. It is a no frills hotel, but was always very clean. The last couple of years it has started to show wear and is in need of detail cleaning, new bedding, clean or replace carpets;etc. They have made the breakfast a little better. Please get rid of the stained...

Was just looking for a basic inexpensive place to stay. I didn't really have high expectations, but with the free breakfast, indoor pool and Kitchen area in the room, this place seemed like a good value. Well, the indoor pool is very small. The kitchen area was a micro-fridge, and the breakfast was nothing to brag about. Hotel is very...

Great place to stay for the money. It's clean and comfortable. We've stayed here numerous times. It's close to Tanger Outlet Mall and the attractions of Pigeon Forge. Small indoor pool. Rooms with balconies and if you're lucky your room over looks the ground hog den.

In July 2015 wrote a review after our first stay. I have stayed a 3 times since each time things were a little worse. Staff (some which I believe may be family members) which was very welcoming have gone to more of a grumble for greeting. Rooms and hallways gone downhill. Don't take my word for it if you must...

We stayed two nights and the price cannot be beat. ****We did not have any issues with regard to the manager, the room rate, the staff, the rooms, timeshare pressure or the smell of the pool. ***** Rooms are basic but clean. Beds: Very comfortable (Really) Cracker Barrel: Across the road The Majestic: Next door for Motown Breakfast: Muffins, toast,...
